As promised, here are the notes from the Cho Kusoge! panel I gave at MAGfest 13 last week. I’m editing together a bit of footage from the event still (as well as waiting to see if MAGfest themselves have higher-quality footage), so hopefully that will be available soon as well.
I either directly utilized these sources in the course of research for my panel, or feel they would be useful reads for anyone doing further research independently.
Game Catalog wiki – One of my primary sources of research. Lots of info on all manner of titles, kusoge or no. (Japanese)
Kusoge of the Year Wiki – Another central source of info and research. Also of potential interest: Portable KotY Wiki, Eroge KotY Wiki, Otome KotY Wiki. (all Japanese)
Maka Maka database, complete with information on numerous bugs (Japanese)
Cheetahmen II/Smooth Criminal Mashup: the “unofficial” panel intro.
Death Crimson: I edited together short clips from this longplay to show in the panel.
Hoshi wo Miru Hito: I used a sampling of this video in the presentation.
