Are you serious? Did they just go out of business, or are they maybe redesigning their website?

Seems they're gone for good.

A lot of VisualArts brands are fairly transient entities anyway. "Otherwise" cropped up in about 2000, released two games in fairly quick succession (Sense off and 未来にキスを), and then apparently disbanded; the site (http://otherwise.product.co.jp/) remained unchanged from around 2002 until mid-2005, when it took on its current form, which basically just says that they're closed, and their second game is going to get a remake made by another VisualArts brand (13cm). Sense off, it appears, is just going to disappear into obscurity. :(

I know it's a double post, but I decided to make one from the interesting game demo I played today.

This girl's name is Eris Omori, she is from the game Anonono, which can be found at the Insani website. Eris has a really cute face.

My avatar comes with no explanation needed (hopefully ^_^ - PM me to save the embarassment of public humiliation if you need to!)

I've had this avatar for practically a year now and most probably needs to be changed but I barely have the time to even read the messages in the forums nowadays.

I AM interested though in knowing the reasoning behind the avatar names. As for me, I normally use Roman names for my user id's and avatars. Aldareon just came to my head while as I woke up on the train to Uni. I neglected to use it for many months though as I normally use names that begin with "P", such as Praetextus and Procyon.

I haven't really been bothering to enforce size limits - the only reason there's one given at all is that the board software requires one. I'm really only going to object if someone starts using one that's so big or flashy that it ends up disrupting things. Which hasn't quite happened yet, though I wouldn't want to see anything much bigger than kouryuu's. ^^;

As for the rationale behind my name... uh, when the board at Dave's Classics (remember them? ^_^) was changed one time way back in the 90s, someone else got my usual nick before I could, so I tried to pick a new one that I was damn sure nobody else was ever going to choose. ;)

People have drawn negative inferences in the past about the rationale behind my name from the fact that you can type it using only your left hand, but it's really because being the unimaginative sort, I lay down on the keyboard and went with what came up. I'm not sure which is more embarassing.

As for my nick, it's a name of some otherwise non-descript Orc hero in Warcraft 2 which I liked to use the last couple of years, but nowadays I'm a lot more random with nicks.

kouryuu
2005-07-08, 09:40
As for Avatar name, Kouryuu means Water Dragon (I believe? If thats wrong tell me?) I've been using it since I first had AIM, bc well I liked it...
I always get those "blue" or "water" results when i take quizzes, so i figure it fits.


I removed it because kouryuu's avatar is 200 pixels tall when it should have been limited to 125...

*cowering in corner*
I'm sorry? I just clicked submit and it accepted, i figured it would've auto-shrank but it didn't.... and i didn't really have anything better to change to at the time...

Does it really bother you guys that much? cuz I'll change it if it is.... I just have yet to find a good Revvie Avatar.

My title: Well, I like Nayuki alot, but I can see why Haeleth likes Shiori, and seriously, I agree with him about Shiori mostly. And since compared to the other girls both Shiori and Nayuki are superior, my title reflects my opinion as such.

Hehehehe, forget it. I was only joking around by taking something completely unrelated and attaching it to my otherwise non-existant reasoning. (If what I said makes any sense)

Besides that, I don't talk very much on this board except for gving my opinions/praise on anime/game translations, so I figure I better socialize in some sort of way.

well hopefully I don't have to explain my avatar. though I should change it, but I am quite lazy :P

as for my forum name, thos who have played StarCraft would all know the saying "En Taro Adun". wellI thought the name Adun was awesome, so back in the days when hotmail was "the thing" i tried going for "adun@hotmail.com" but was already taken, so I just added the 50 at the end

Spiritsnare
2005-07-09, 06:59
Name: random fantasy D&D generator. XD And I really did like the name, and apparently it was very unique enough that no one had really used it on any forums I went to. Therefore, Spiritsnare -- or if the name is mysteriously taken, Spiritsnare Flux.

Avatar: Please do yourself a favor and play Panel de Pon (but try not to play its N64 port Pokèmon Puzzle League, unless you're really out of options). The avatar's from the GBA linkup version.

Name is an interesting story. My last name is the relatively-uncommon (in America) St.Louis, and WAAAY back in my first year of high school, my gym/social sciences teacher had taken to calling me, "The Great Saint" as a nickname. Around that same time, I was signing up for a Hotmail address, when Hotmail was all the rage, and I found that "greatsaint" was already taken. Not wanting to put extraneous numbers or other characters in, I found that "greatsaintlouis" was available. Since then, it has migrated to my Gmail and AIM accounts, and is my usual forum registration name just so I don't have to keep track of (or more likely, forget) multiple different screennames.

My avatar is the lovely Rera from the SNK fighter samurai spirits. My user name comes from Bust Nakoruru - Nakoruru's "evil" twin - which is what Rera was known as before she became a fully playable character.

Misu
2005-07-26, 13:53
If you dont know who my avatar is... uhm yeah... you've definately got to be new here ^^;;.

Uhm, my name. Well, back a good three years ago, when I got into AIR, I really like the character Misuzu (and I still really do ^^). So, around the same time, one of my good friends set up a private forum to do online D&D. I used the screen name Misuzu. After a couple days, my friend concluded that Misu was a much cuter sounding name, and fit my character slightly better, so he being the GM forced a name change upon me ><. Needless to say, it stuck... and it stuck really hard (cuase, it went from being a single screen name to pretty much everyone one of my screen names, then it somehow became my nick name in real life too, and now its at the point that more people call me Misu then by my real name). In recent times though, when I sign up for a forum or something, I've been trying to get the screen name Misuzu if I can. But most of the time, thats taken, so I fall back on my trusty Misu ^~ (which ironically seems untaken just about everywhere).

Hmm, well as for me, my username is something that came out of a desperate need to come up with a new username that sounded somewhat cool, and my love of steampunk, thus the reference to old science.
And my avatar is the ever-cute Suzumiya Haruka from Kimi ga Nozomu Eien, from one of the more amusing scenes in the game that sadly just gets a passing reference in the anime.

Valkyrie
2005-07-27, 04:48
Name-wise for me would be due to the fact I had just got addicted to Valkyrie Profile in those days, and started using it as my name online. Avatar-wise...would be because I just took a liking to this one...

ChronoReverse
2005-07-27, 20:35
No idea about this screenname. I've used it for a long time so it stuck (although I usually shorten to CR now since it's rather long).


The avatar was ripped and resized from Air TV.

But If you wanna see...

It's here, enjoy! :P
Calamity Angel, the Model of the week!
A great Unreal Tournament 2004 custom (Fan) model for you!
If you wanna see/download some skins and models of Unreal Tournament games (99/2k3/2k4; Nothing about the 2k7 T_T),
go to http:\\www.skincity.beyondunreal.com now and see the Skin City main page!
http://www.skincity.beyondunreal.com/src/img_models/pic2_id511.jpg

But I DON'T wanna know if the page never more opens! :P

Form left ro right, from up to down:
1° Calamity angel model in the character selection, I think...
2° The angel got the Minigun! (If it's a minigun I don't know, For me it appears a gattling gun!
3° Oh man! The angel gets a Rocket Launcer!!!
4° and 5° The angel got the Link gun (Plasma rifle, the substitute of UT's Pulse gun)
6° Take this, baby! I'm your angel of death! :P
(I mean: Rocket launcer again!)
A little detail: She won't open the eyes, don't wait for such moment!
(It means: She kills everyone with closed eyes. It's a Calamity Angel! :P)


I think It's time to make Kanon/AIR models for all the unreal Tournaments!
Or better, a MOD with kanon/AIR characters and elements!
ex: Misuzu's Juice instead health vial; Mai's sword instead Impact Hammer (Nobody can touch in the UT Chainsaw!); Michiru relic instead Strengt relic; Ice or heavenly (Unholy too :P) weapons; Miracle relic instead Redemption Relic...
... and All the Kanon/AIR characters ready for use in the tournament! a Kanon/AIR DeathMatch! :P

I went to the download section and there aren't any links to anything :/

I would be shish if I could remember my password (at school, so no cookie and no browser to remember it for me)... My avatar is a sad victorian girl in snow I drew, since my main avatar rotation (http://shish.is-a-geek.net/projects/rav/gallery.php?user=Shish) is standardised at 125x125px, and this forum said 100x100 was the limit (although people seem to have over, so I ponder switching despite the rules :P)

The name is my real name, in my mother's native language, as I pronounced it as a 3 year old with a lisp; it stuck and is now my name for everything except legal documents~ I also post here as STaNLI when I'm posting from school and hence aren't logged in by cookie (Shish Th[ea] Not Logged In~)

this forum said 100x100 was the limit (although people seem to have over, so I ponder switching despite the rules :P)
The official limit here's been 125x125 for quite a while now, and I don't tend to object to larger ones unless they're really intrusive. So go ahead and switch if you want to!
