how is the drm on 666 maou


I wouldn't know, my disc is still on order. I was going to host some of the stuff from the website for those without proxies.

I hope the DRM isn't too bad. Makes importing hell. Also makes it hell trying to backup for my own records.

Hear hear. While I'm a fan of most modern improvements to eroge, DRM is not one of them. It's probably one of the worst modern innovations in eroge, just after nearly eliminating denpa games and seriously defanging tsundere.
I don't mind it as much on my DL sales titles but it should stay off package titles.

It's akuchi (ALPHA activation), which is on a couple of titles I've got, and is pretty benign really. Needs an internet connection for the first time you run it and again to reactivate if your hardware changes in the meantime.

Got mine before that whole postal freeze. Delayed by customs, but that's to be expected.

Couldn't get the activation to work, so I ended up patching it over.

The activation also screws over AGTH since it refuses to accept the hook as a valid extension. This was manually bypassed.

The game... was well worth the money. The script was well written. Voices were perfect, like before. A bit short, yes, but the quality makes up for it.

Peter Payne, please, license these two titles.

Well, understand that I know little Japanese, and run AGTH and Translation Aggregator.

The plot again centers around a potion meant to give strength that instead reserves the gender of the user.

The characters really seem to have emotion and depth to them. One example would be in one path, Lisa changes into a guy so she/he can be with Rusty now that he's a woman. Cecilla has some good dialog as well. I haven't fully played the game yet.

There is a lot of comedy in the game as well. In one path, you can accidentally split yourself into a man and a woman. There's really only a few parts where I couldn't understand the intended meaning behind the Japanese.

However, it is short on plot choices and paths. The acting and dialog is still the same top quality as the main game, however.

Correction: It's actually a lot longer then I expected.

The plot is still very well done.

There's a Romeo and Juliet bit with you and Cecilla where you attempt to fake your own deaths, an option to form a demon/human land pact with the King, and a lot more that I won't even begin to spoil.

One minor complaint... the "scene jump" feature only collects the material from the main path.

There a bunch of sub-scenarios that you can select, and I don't see a way to store their h-scenes for easy access besides using save game slots for each one.

However, the CG room stores data from both the main game AND the subplots, so it's even more confusing as to why they didn't put the scenes in the scene jump.

Also, whoever said this game was short... you are wrong. I just now finished the "main" section of the game. I still have about 10 separate subplots to go through.

Honestly, I think they should translate this before X-Change Alternative 2. I'd still like that to be released, but let's be honest, the possible loli is an issue, and the content isn't as good as 3/6 methods.

There are no problems with methods, aside from some parts where they might screw up translation.

There are a few sections that I hope they would be able to leave alone, such as a confusion over lily meaning flowers or yuri, or Rusty practicing his "feminine" speech patterns.

This is one of the few games right now that seems to have everything. Touching romance, great voice and sound effects, comedy... and the fact that almost every hentai scene still works wonders for me after multiple passes.

It would almost be a crime if these weren't released.

Another possible problem... there's' a CG sequence critical to the plot where a message is written on a food dish in Japanese. I would hope there would be a way to preserve that without editing the CG. Maybe add a small translation caption to the CG instead of editing the entire graphic into English?

It's now up for DL sales. In some cases you can gauge the success of a title by how quickly the company decides to sell it online (because it's in their best interests to keep it selling in stores as long as possible, or even reprint if that proves fruitful) and I think that this, along with it being nearly totally ignored on review sites and not even making the top 30 sales list for October hints to me that CROWD does better with new things than with fandiscs.

I really don't understand it. From what I've played, this game had pretty much everything for everyone, without anything really off-putting.

The romances and plot were well handled, and almost every fan service possible was included.

Yes Narg... there IS twincest. I'm not saying this as just a fanboy, but I honestly think it's one of the finest games Crowd has done, and one of the best I've played.

I'm STILL playing the dang thing and still haven't gotten all the content. There were numerous times that I laughed out loud because of a gag or joke in the game. It'd be a shame if it doesn't register as a success.
