22:10:50 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> I would like to agree with the panelist to my left
22:10:56 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> imouto futures are a very found investment
22:11:18 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> imouto is no longer a fetish in anime manga or games, it's a norm, so i expect it going nowhere
22:11:32 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> I agree
22:12:03 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> I'm going to be the voice of dissent here and say onee chan are better
22:12:39 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> Q: Key games?

22:13:21 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> Key and Typemoon are used to seeing 10k's sales, but 100's
22:13:57 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> Q: Is there a reason you can't translate more than visual novel... like RPG games? like Airsoft?
22:14:48 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> A: We would love to do more games with gameplay, the problem is that games with gameplay actually require an actually programmer on the japanese side because they don't want to let anyone else tinker witht the engine and that programmer is very busy

22:23:14 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> Q: Password protection like steam?
22:23:29 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> A: you are asking us to add drm to our games?
22:23:34 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> We get enough hostility already
22:23:44 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> we don't want to restrict usage too much
22:24:01 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> but the industry is so niche that the first month of sales is crucial and so we need some dorm
22:24:13 <bay|AX|Mangagamer> Q: Shin Koihime Musou?
