What is Bai Qu: Hundreds of Melodies and are you pronouncing it correctly? I can answer the first question, but don't come to me for an answer to the second--I think it's "Bye-Cue," but I could be wrong (and probably am). Bai Qu is a visual novel about a young man who befriends a young girl and there's probably more to it than that, but, sadly, one thing gets in the way of Bai Qu reaching any kind of potential greatness: the localization/English translation. That's not to say there aren't other issues with the game--the art is lacking and the script could use some cutting--but the weakness of it's localization and translation makes it hard to engage with the story as a native English-speaker, especially if you're like me and mildly dyslexic with reading comprehension issues. Given that story and reading is 90% of what a visual novel is, give or take an extra 9%, that's kind of a problem.
