Note: in an otome game, if a named character dies, you're probably not getting the good ending.

In a bishoujo game, if a named character dies, you're probably not getting her good ending.

I'm with Koptev on this. If a named character dies, you're not getting their ending or the perfect ending, but it makes little difference and may, in fact, be necessary for, the good ending for a different character.

Yes, it appears you're right. Turns out I needed to stay in my room like a lump to get the ending for the character that I wanted.

And then, of course, there are Type Moon games, where named characters (protagonist included) die in the preface. The again, in Nasuverse, people don't die when they are killed.

Sounds about right. In every game genre (I'm not sure what otome is), requirements for getting the good ending are getting more and more absurd.

I am always amused, however, when a game series makes the *bad* ending canonical.

Also, *poke*. Still need that e-mail from you. Time is something of a factor. The address, again, is blue.jed@pbgc.gov.

Sorry, but I honestly don't remember.
