Is there any way that S;G Okabe might learn about all the struggles Beta Okabe went through? It's a bit sad somehow to know he'll never actually have experienced all that happened to get to this point.

It's sad, but isn't that the point in a way? The Beta Okabes are throwing themselves into oblivion, undone again and again for the sake of reaching the new world. It's meant to be undone.

Maybe, but it's hard to say for sure. I feel like they could definitely meet in the Steins Gate though.

Should I read S;G and S;G 0 in Japanese or English? Which is the better experience? I presume you played both versions.

Ultimately it comes down to preference. They're both very different experiences, as in the translation process the translator adds his or her own flair to the text. Also certain terms are handled differently. If you want more things you're familiar with, I'd say the English version, but if you're just wanting to read the VN as it was originally presented, go for Japanese.

I hear Dies Irae is largely inspired by European theater, any specific examples there?

Wagner, I suppose. It's more classic literature than theater. The Arias in the game contain lines from all kinds of prose and fiction in languages such as Norse, German, and Latin. But it's not like it's necessary for you to have actually read or experienced these things before going into the game.

Could you tell a newbie like me about Dies Irae ? Was it well received in Japan, were people waiting for it in the west ? Also please tell me what it up with that Spinne guy ?!

Dies irae is a highly acclaimed battle opera chuunige featuring several former Nazis that gained immortality through dark occultic rites, and a young man finding out the truth about himself. Spinne is one of the LDO members and I just like him a lot even though he's kind of their weakest guy.
