This is why I think DRM is useless. All it does is turn off people who would have bought it. Those who wouldn't have payed to begin with still download, whether it's DRM-free on release day or a cracked version shortly after.

I don't think there's a single generalization we can make about DRM.

In many cases, it's possible that these schemes hinder more than they help. However, you also have to consider the dynamics of the market in question. For smaller eroge publishers in Japan (whose titles are less likely to be leaked ahead of time), authentication has supposedly increased sales by preventing piracy over the first week or two of release.

In that market, launch sales mean everything since products rarely have staying power. Most people who're interested in a game play it right as it's released, so pirates who're willing to pay but often don't (due to free downloads right off the bat - they only pay if there's no other option) are effectively kept in check.

It's a different market climate here, though. It seems like a lot of the fans of this stuff are:
1) Computer-savvy
2) Generally without other equivalent media (e.g. lack the ability to read Japanese), and thus can only really go for mangagamer, JAST/GC/PP and fan translations
3) Relatively few in number compared to the big markets, so you'd want to sell as many as possible, rather than turning people away

This all adds up to DRM being cracked pretty damn soon after release, and in a niche market like this, you aren't going to get the same insanely front-loaded sales curve... you're going to get a slow number of sales over time, just like indie titles, which makes having a lot of titles available (rather than one or two 'hits') very important, and also minimises the benefit of DRM

Oh, I agree about the minimal benefit of DRM in this case. It's just that I dislike the blanket statements people often make (often with the pretense that they have conclusive evidence backing their claims), either in favor of or against DRM.

Of course. Pirates come in all forms.

A few years ago, there was a problem with people buying PC games, burning copies, and returning them the next day (this was before high speed internet connections became as prevalent. However, CD burners had gotten much cheaper). That's why chains like EBGames stopped accepting product returns.

Based on personal experience, most of my friends who used to buy PC games download everything now (it's one reason why the PC market is in fast decline, whereas the game industry as a whole is expanding), except for MMORPGs that require subscription fees. Naturally, many still buy a lot of console games since they couldn't be bothered to modify their systems to run copies.

Just curious but could anyone that understands these Japanese titles better care to share how they'd interpret these names? They just sound so unnatural from what we're used to.

* The Queen and Princess as your rewards
* Sandwiched by my wife and her sister
* Shera, My Witch
* Suck my dick or die!
* Tasty Shafts
* My sex slave is a classmate
* Which girl should I choose?

We all know Da Capo is ok, so is Edelweiss and Suika A.S+ (I think?).

My original article contains the Japanese names, which I'll reproduce here:
Quote:
The Queen and Princess as your rewards / 魔将の贄 (Liquid)
Da Capo / D.C. ~ダ・カーポ~ (CIRCUS)
Suika A.S+ / 水夏A.S+ (CIRCUS)
Edelweiss / エーデルワイス (OVERDRIVE)
My sex slave is a classmate / 僕の牝秘書は同級生 (Liquid)
Sandwiched by my wife and her sister / 姉妹丼~汁だくで~ (PSYCHO)
Shera, My Witch / さっきゅば☆SOON! (SCORE)
Suck my dick or die! / 凌辱ゲリラ狩り (Liquid)
Tasty Shafts / 美味しい棒が2本 (PSYCHO)
Which girl should I choose? / ひなたぼっこ (Tarte)
The Queen and Princess as your rewards -> Offerings to a Demonic General (the game is about procuring royalty as "servants")
My sex slave is a classmate -> My Female/Pet Secretary is a Classmate (the game is about sexually training a female in order to become a succesor to a company... the word they use for female is usually reserved for referring to animals that one raises)
Sandwiched by my wife and her sister -> Sisters Bowl (same bowl as in Beef Bowl) ~Full of Fluid~
Shera, My Witch -> Succubussoon!
Tasty Shafts -> Two Tasty Shafts
Which girl should I choose? -> HinataBokko (literally Basking in the Sunlight)

I dont know if anyone noticed but da capo and suika seems to be delayed. Well, if it means we are gonna get better quality translations I guess I will wait a bit longer.

I asked them trough email if they are planning to localize Edelweiss Eiden Fantasia, and they said
We will introduce it sometime in next year.
Awesome!
