エロゲー 壁紙 ~ Eroge Kabegami

No, not the explicit ones :P
Was digging around the タユタマ (tayutama) game site and found they offered 1920×1200 wallpapers!
You’ll want to head to the official page (that page should be sfw, but navigate the rest of the site at your own risk. *cough* character pages *cough*) for the original bitmaps, though if you can’t be bothered, you can click the image for a jpg. Decided to browse some other visual novel sites for more wallpaper and wasn’t disappointed.
Sadly none of the other lumps of sugar game pages seemed to have anything and I ended up at UNiSONSHIFT’s product listing. Not bad… pretty much all the games had 1600×1200 offerings. (gonna be a mix of sfw and nsfw links probably, all visual novel games pages, so definitely even the sfw links are in danger of being nsfw ^^;… and as such, gonna stop bothering to label links from here down). Click the links below and scroll down to find a bunch of 1600×1200 wallpapers for the corresponding game.
What do you look for in wallpaper? I generally like… mmm… how to describe it? Simple designs? Pure? err… minimalist? Basically I want the art to be the focus… not any text or extraneous stuff… though with official wallpapers I’m a little more forgiving. Speaking of simple, after watching haruhi, I really wanted a wallpaper of just the H with haruhi’s silhouette that appears in the ED… yet at the time I couldn’t find it anywhere. In the end I took a screenshot, blew up the image and made my own:
The silhouette is a little rough ‘cuz I didn’t take the time I shoulda cleaning it up… but was good enough for me ^^; Simple and elegant. Had it on my work computers for awhile (lots of “what is H?” questions ^^;;). Anyone know of an official version? ^^;
If you’re going on your own wallpaper hunt at the official game sites, simply look out for one the following words:
ダウンロード – だうんろうど – daunro-do – download
オマケ – おまけ – omake – freebie/bonus/extra
壁紙 – かべがみ – カベガミ – wallpaper
I’ve included both katakana and hiragana for completeness. Or another good trick is to check the url of the link… they’ll often use an english name for the page (i.e. download.html). Happy hunting ^^
In figures news, yami’s hand arrived!
Three cheers for Hobby Search! Handled with the kind of professionalism I expect from a business. In case such an unfortunately event happens to you, here’s how easy things are:
1. Open package and orz when you notice a part is missing.
2. Send an e-mail according to their FAQ guidelines. If you check the FAQ link, you’ll be presented with a link to a “form” to fill out – basically just a link that opens up an e-mail with a specific subject line to alert them to your problem. In my case I provided my name, order number, and some pictures of the item to illustrate the part was missing.
3. They responded in a day or two saying that they were contacting their product representative and apologized for the inconvenience and late response (after my dealings with kid nemo, the 1 day turn around was blazing fast and I was actually surprised to hear from them so soon).
4. Got another mail the next day… they had the part and sent it out EMS shipping at no cost to me. Exactly what I wanted.
In the end, just took 1 e-mail and 2 business days later, the part was mailed out. Very easy, great service.
Love the blade. So sexay. ^^ Couple more chapters and I’ll be wrapping up ToLoveる volume 4… I think yami makes her debut in 5 ^_^
Once again… just wanna mention my rss reader queue is overflowing with 367 unread items… been busy lately and haven’t been able to make my rounds as often as I’d like ;_;
