The episode 1 description says something about difficulty? I thought this is just all reading

The voice acting is pretty good though I could say the same for most VAs. Really dig the opening too.
I assume the old man dropped dead after screaming like that. He got involved with a witch, who I think is Beatrice and the person in some painting.

It is. The 'gameplay' would be the entirely self-imposed challenge of trying to solve things for yourself as you read.

Also yes, the voice acting is one of the big reasons I would rather use the PS3 assets (also I just don't like the pachinko art they lifted for the Steam version). They got a lot of pretty big VAs involved, so the production values are fairly high, like the protagonist being voiced by Daisuke Ono.
Just killing time until the world ends.

Why does this whole family get English names. That's not how it's supposed to be read in Japanese... not that I actually know how it's pronounced

Just got to Rokkenjima. Stopping here for today, it's starts slow but that is what I expected. Some random thoughts.
This will probably have something to do will the old man's will and inheritance. Everyone acts nice around each other but the siblings probably don't like each that much and I doubt this mood will last. A bunch of people is going to die, it's a mystery after all.

Old guy (Ginzo?): Turns out he isn't dead after all, will be at some point early on.
Rudolf and Eva: Pretty sinister
George: The nice normal looking guy always hides something in these games, won't be surprised if he turns evil. Also got the cloudy glasses sprite which is a dead giveaway.
Maria: Designed to be the cute loli character but all the 'uuuuuu's.... just shut up already. Is she supposed to be 9 years old?
Battler: Dumb but funny.
Jessica: Sure is weird to keep making sexual jokes with your cousin, but it's Japan so what do I know.
The granny servant: Her laugh creeps me out.

Don't really have much of an opinion on the others.

I also tried the old art but it don't like it at all. Looks like something drawn by me.

"Kinzo," BTW.

These are all fair opinions so far! I'm an old art fan but can understand skipping it if it wasn't what you started with you philistine

Tag. Heck yeah, doesn't bother me that there are a million Umineko readthroughs lol. Mine will probably still outlive everyone's since I only see Arria every few weeks.

And yeah, fair opinions thus far. Nothing unexpected.
