VNs were super niche for a time, being relegated to a level of weebness above anime and manga.
It didn't help that for the longest time, the English scene was effectively underground, relegated to the whims of fan-translators. Piracy was rule of the day.
It also didn't help that most VNs were pornographic in some way.

Now VNs have gone legit. The idea of buying something like Kara no Shoujo off of steam was unthought of not that long ago

Eh, I'm with Joshua on this one. Even if niche, VNs are almost the definition of a casual game. Casual /= mainstream.

"Casual" refers to the gameplay.

Everything is casual if you are good enough at it.   :P  Like those guys that speedrun Dark Souls naked with cymbals instead of a controller.

Maybe we've had it backwards this whole time, and it's the casul gamers who find Dark Souls a relaxing experience while hardcore gamrrs ragequit in the tutorial because it's too hard for them.

The real question is whether she is a casual genius, a casual nazi, or a casual waifu.

I am surprised nintendo has not released a version of zelda that has multiplay capacity actually.  Dungeon mechanics design could be radically more complex, if you could coordinate with another player in another part of it.  Each would have their own mess of stuff to deal with, but their progress is essential to the other players' progress, by activating parts of the dungeon.
Triforce Heroes has moments sort of like that: https://youtu.be/lryckPzm5ag?t=260

Nintendo wants players to interact more closely with each other, though. I think a game where players spend large amounts of time waiting for noobs to figure stuff out on their own is unlikely.


YouTube is giving me bizarre, irrelevant autofill suggestions. The first results as I type out "Triforce Heroes blazing trail":
Triforce Heroes blizzaga -> Triforce Heroes blazblue -> Triforce Heroes blazing saddles -> Triforce Heroes blazing thunder -> Triforce Heroes blazing trap -> Triforce Heroes blazing traduzione

Usually it's pretty good with suggestions.

Firefox was taking up >6GB again so I gave it a restart.  Didn't bother to stop Youtube first.  After about 30 seconds (I was swapping badly) the windows were gone, but the tasks were still going, and the surprising thing:  Youtube started playing an ad!

I often run Youtube with adblock off, but had it on for this video.  I'm just sorta surprised that shutting down adblock let Youtube get an ad in, without having to restart the video or something (In the middle of a shutdown process!)

I can't decide whether that is amusing or terrifying.

Sometimes if I close a YouTube tab before it finishes loading all the way, the video will somehow start playing in the background anyway as if nothing happened. I think it's a bug with either Firefox or YouTube, because my adblocker was on at the time.

Known bug for firefox, it closes tabs visually for you to feel faster, but it finishes closing scripts in the background, so it might reproduce sound (and sometimes open links) before it is actually "done" with a tab. Happens in Chrome when it starts lagging or freezing too.

Another unrelated bug is HTML5 media not getting killed after closing tabs, and affects every browser I ever tried.
