When did the Touhou 14 demo/ actual game announcement actually happen? It doesn't seem like anybody's talking about it which is strange.

It was apparently announced here or at least that was the vast majority of people link to, as I don't understand a lick of japanese.

Wait is the game seriously based on a religious debate? How can there be room for a debate when you got litteral gods as a characters? I figured they'd... well, they would have a lot authority on this.

Oh no, my suspension of disbelief in a nonsense games series about magical monsters and their lasers, ruined~


Symposium of Post-mysticism is an official book where Marisa moderates debates between the big four (Reimu, Kanako, Byakuren and Miko) with Akyuu recording the conversations. Its actually quite interestin and funny!

Ah, it makes sense when you put it that way.
As for a), my point is that at the time that Gensokyo was closed away, Shinto wasn't really a thing yet, every shrine or group of shrines was in it for themselves, based on the gods that were enshrined there. It's really not so different now either, the shrines in the town I lived in were mostly to Hachiman, for example. That's why it's strange if she's like "whatever's good as long as it's Shinto (but not Moriya)".

According to wikipedia...
Shinto (or Koshinto) existed in Japan since the 8th century.
Modern Shinto began when it became the state religion of japan during the Meiji period in 1868.
Gensokyo (or to be more precise the Great Hakurei border) was apparently created in 1885.

However the year Gensokyo was created is really debatable, they use the sixty year cycle as a means to pinpoint its beginning. So if this is true the Gensokyo region was only exposed to "modern" for a handful of years. But the barrier has probably existed for a couple more centuries than the Touhou wiki assumes, oh well...

edit: Anyway this is getting all serious and dumb so here's a picture by Bion of Reimu riding a moped in the air.



Thats not a moped (no pedals) or a scooter (big wheels) its the motherfucking Honda Super Cub (Passport in the US0, the best selling motorcycle of all time. It is a greater libarator (and mover) of people than the AK-47 and the FN FAL combined.

With that said let me tell you about all about touhou and motorcycles:




Look them Cubs, if I had one I would ride the gently caress out that tiny fun bike not giving a single gently caress. No helmets in any of these pictures (no unstrapped helmets don't count). Also LOL at the left hand shift.




Sidecars are the only way to TRULY rock three wheels on a bike, that is unless you are old as dirt and have back problems. The first two are either BMWs or URAL and Marisa looks like she is saying "YOU loving PUT TOO MANY CUCUMBERS IN THAT MOTHERFUCKING SANDWICH!". The last one is just horrible and I wanted to share my suffering with you guys, you are motherfucking welcome.




Sensible bikes for sensible ladies (except you Nitori at least wear some pants). The first two may be based off the Honda CB77 Superhawk or other similar Honda bikes from the 1960. The last one may be a Suzuki T250 but I am probably very wrong.


Aya shows them bitches how to do sick rear end wheelies and shoot comunist on her M1030M1. A diesel motorcycle based on the Kawasaki KLR650, so its a motherfucking diesel dual-sport. If some day this bike gets released to the public Cycle Asylum will collectively poo poo their pants and give all their money to those responsible.



Watchout guys theese girls are riding the only REAL motorcycle in this lovely rear end post. Why yes its a Harley(TM) V-ROD(TM). Full face helmet and shorts? A loving vest and a "helmet-hat"?



And now its time to go "awwwww" for these are tiny tiny clever motorcycles. Part of the Honda Z series these are tiny 50cc motorcycles you can take anywhere with you. Well they where no Honda Motocompo but you know what I mean.

edit: While we're at it,



Probably not a real motorcycle so I guess I'm a philistine though.

That is based on the Suzuki Maruder, a big rear end cruiser with a big rear end radiator. SPEAKING OF SUZUKI


Ichirin shows how loving stylish she is by riding what probably is a 1986 GSX-R 750. Look at dat adorable derpy face


Have another 1980 bike a Yamaha FZ750 Phazer a good picture that illustrates how small motorcycles actually are. Also dat bike


Futo shows she is radical as gently caress on what is probably a Yamaha WR450F. RADICAL TAOIST ACTION.

This one could have really stood to explain its point better. I think the goldfish in the bag is supposed to be a metaphor for youkai in Gensokyo, and the wizard's implying that Yukari trapped everyone. Also random, Reimu sighting!

I think its more Gensokyo is a place where fantasy goes to a very slow and prolonged death. Kinda like the heat death of fantasy, the sorcerer also implies Yukari might be tricking everyone into thinking nothing is wrong. Keep in mind Gensokyo is supposed to be only a hundred years or so.

On a different note, after giving every shot type a good shake in TH14, is it just me or is this actually pretty difficult? Granted, I thought the same thing about TH13 when the demo first came out so I dunno how my opinion will change in the future, but right now things seem to get pretty tricky even at the stage 2 boss.

I had an easier time with Reimu A and Sakuya A. Reimu A for being like Reimu/Yukari in TH8. Sakuya A for being a much better TH11 Marissa C, her shot type is wider and her defensive bomb is actually useful.

Heck, in The Game Room, there have been two attempts to run a Touhou battle game using the Fate RPG system. I did one, another goon did the other but both fell apart for personal reasons of the GM. Its tough to recreate the game itself, but we tried to nail the Gensokyo flavor which is really all you need.

I still think that the best way to run a touhou inspired game is using a supernatural detective theme set in modern times.

Actually I wouldn't be surprised if Sakuya is in the top ten results, but redesigned in some porny style. We all know that Touhou fans are creeps. Semi-relatedly, Teppu has the best take on anime maids.

Teppu is the best and everyone should read Teppu, or even better practice MMA. There is nothing better than getting thrown around like a ragdoll by a dude who is smaller than you and weighs more than you.

Bakanogami posted:

I've been playing Kan Colle for a while and working on putting together an OP post for the upcoming anime version. You're right that the game isn't great. It's mostly grinding and RNG. I think people have gotten into it for the same reasons as Touhou: a wide, loosely characterized cast that easily translates into doujins and the like. It rides off the recent successes of other military moe series like Girls Und Panzer, too.

I really dont know what to think about THAT game other than being creeped the gently caress out by it. Touhou is a silly game with girls in it that (I think) started with little to no pandering to the fans and was later sexualized to a horrible degree by gigantic creeps. Katanai seems to be a silly game that started with bucketloads of pandering and is sexualized to a horrible degree by gigantic creeps.

What I am trying to say is that I am angry about anime girls games.
