    The boyfriend lock feature will be handy to keep siblings and such from playing but the parental introduction system is kinda crossing the line a bit. Konami is doing a good job on the game though but I want to know this "new system" they are working on and I don't approve of the parental introduction system. There's also a yuri mode in the works.

    So, boyfriend lock, new features, new graphics, 3D mode, a possible wedding system (the ring on finger, could that be engagement?) and some other nice things. Konami just made the new generation Simulator, Love. I have to say, although im not really a fan or something this game could be really intresting, since there also is a Yuri mode, its way more.. yeh audience spread wise thingish...

    I, however, expect the critics not to be so happy about this new features, i dunno why, but i can feel it.

    I don't think it'll be the game critics that will complain, they'll praise the new features but it may attract unwanted attention from a certain Tokyo governor.

    I'm thinking of the unfortunate implications from having the parent introduction option, prepare for families disowning sons.

    Am I the only one who doesn't see the point in these games? I've always felt that games should give you the opportunity to break free of reality, do things you couldn't do under normal circumstances, like fly an Arwing in an interplanetary war, or blast through a loop-the-loop in a hovercar at over a thousand miles an hour. It's not difficult to go out into the world and meet real girls. Especially if you're like me, blessed with a lack of facial anomolies and I have my own wolf.

    Unless you have a face like a post office worker that got caught in the sorting machine, I fail to see how this game has any value whatsoever.

    You are breaking free from reality, you are dating and eventually marrying the perfect girlfriend, there is no such thing in real life. Oh yeah have you ever looked more into the game Second Life, if so this would make a whole lot more sense to you if you done the research on the game.

    I dunno, I reckon the perfect woman's out there somewhere. If it wasn't for the fact that she's fucked off to New Zealand, about as far away from here as she can get, I'd have said my friend Sian would've been in with a fairly solid attempt at the title.

    Besides, what makes these virtual girls 'perfect', exactly? Everybody has unique tastes. The chances of a game character hitting every single point on your checklist is virtually negligible. Ergo it makes more sense to not waste time on a game like this with a hopelessly limited selection and go out into the wider world to increase your chances of finding that one perfect person. I admit the chances of any of us finding our one perfect companion are pretty slim, but those chances are exponentially increased by meeting real people, right?

    That and to me a key part of any relationship, perfect or otherwise, is the more physical side. You go right ahead and fuck your 3DS if you like, I'll stick to human girls if you don't mind.

    Personally, I think it's having a girl act all nice, friendly and lovey-dovey to you /without/ having to deal with her problems might be one this genre's main selling points.
    Call it sad; I think it's understandable. After all, nowadays, games strive to feel 'real' (not exactly realistic, but not virtual, either);
    you can't really blame a person for getting too immersed in a dating sim as elaborate as Love Plus.


    Edit: I guess being able to just put her on hold for a while might help, too. ^-^
    Really though, it's like asking why you would masturbate if you could just have sex with a real girl.
    It (both masturbation and Love Plus) is available whenever you want it, and you can do whatever you want without hurting another one's feelings. There's a reason this game was made for Handhelds, after all. :3

    In the end, I can understand why you wouldn't like it; I haven't ever played a game like this myself, either, so I can't really comment on it. However, I can definitely see its appeal, and it might not be for you - or, for that matter, for me, too - but there are a lot of people out there who enjoy games like this.

    isabelyes, i got somewhat spaced out by your message there, comparing the masturbation with the game... however you are quite right. This game is just to simulate, without having to go through troubles. However, i guess that the familly would disagree a bit.. just because it doesnt feel right for them. I wonder if it will come to eu/us markets this time?

    This had better not be exclusive to Japan.

    Haha~ ^-^
    Well, you shouldn't take it /that/ literally.
    It's about relationships more than anything else.
    I just thought I'd compare it to masturbating because, even if 'Tempers haven't ever had sex or a girfriend, even if they've never played a game like this or read a romance novel - they sure as hell will have masturbated at least once in their lives.
    ...I guess.

    Anyway, I /think/ - though I'm not sure - that LovePlus gives the same kind of 'pleasure', by lack of a less insinuating word, as a romance novel. It's about making you feel love without its difficulties; in that sense, it is as perfect as it gets - far better than reality, at least.
    I'm not antisocial enough to suggest that games are superior to girls, but if you're bad with girls (like me ;_; ) or if you've experienced some kind of trauma or something, Dating Sims are quite a viable solution.

    I find it amusing that you state how an advantage of Love Plus and wanking is that they're available any time, implying that casual sex is not. Have you never been to Coventry? The state of moral decay in this crud hole makes getting laid laughably easy. Seriously. I've been here seven years, two of which I spent in a serious relationship, the other five I've not exactly been lacking in 'entertainment' for thanks in no small part to the tennis club full of hot 19 year olds in those tight white outfits down the road [​IMG]

    I am 15 years old. I've never had sex, nor do I know what a (?) 'Coventry' is.
    However, if fucking horny drunk 19 year-old girls is your idea of love...
    Yes, of course a girlfriend is better. But Dating Sims are for people who either don't have the time, or couldn't bear the shame of just fucking random girls around. As I've already stated, I haven't played a Dating Sim before, but I'm sure as hell that hearing a virtual girl - or, hell, even a little sister - say something like "I love you, Onii-chan" would make me feel loved more than a random drunk girl possibly could.

    You say that sex is available at any time. If we're talking about girlfriends - and we are - then I would find it somewhat disrespectful to a girl to just go like, "hey, let's have sex right now.", and even if I wouldn't, the average girl I know would.

    Dating Sims aren't so much a physical pleasure as they are a mental one.
    Also, even though this isn't true for Love Plus, they offer a wide - and wild - range of situations, that arouse both body and mind.
    To take a rather extreme example - you can't exactly tentacle-[censored] girls in real life, can you now?

    Has there ever been a successful dating sim on any console in the US or Europe? It's obvious.

    I see myself embarrassed by reading this topic. I just can´t go along these games. They´re for lifeless people!, what the fuck?! I mean, it´s ok to look upon younger people, but why don´t you just go out your house and staring enjoying real life? :wtf:

    I mean, "dates" may be fun enough, but trust me, why´d you be in love with a computer? What about the physical contact, the feelings (which should be always real...!), when she(or he) bothers you to go out, enjoy time.

    Would you even say: "Hey! Here´s my new girlfriend!", she loves me, oh wait low battery charge, I won´t eat until she does
