Smartphones are fun.

I am completely addicted to Atelier Meruru.  It's probably been almost ten years since I was this addicted to a game, to the point where I have been neglecting eating and sleeping to get more hours in.  In all honesty I think I liked the story and characters in Totori better (Meruru lacks a driving purpose), but the gameplay has been refined to a whole new level in Meruru.  Having the new third tier of development really helps, so now you have to split your time between crafting, adventuring, and developing.  But they all complement each other perfectly and the feedback is pretty immediate so it leads to a constant feeling of just wanting to play a little more.  Combat--which has never really been a strong point in the Arland trilogy--has also been subtlely improved and it's a lot of fun.  Rather than just being something you have to do it makes me actually look forward to crafting the perfect gear and items so I can take them into combat.

Yeah, this game is friggin good.  What a way to end the trilogy.

So apparently NISA confirmed that they are localizing this at Anime Expo, although there are zero details at this point.  Wait a few months.

I must confess that I've never even heard this "call me maybe" song you're all talking about.  Not once.  Sometimes I feel like I live in a bubble totally isolated from pop culture...
2540  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Crunchyroll PS3 app! on: June 29, 2012, 07:58:42 PM
I thought about putting this in the anime/manga journal, but it's not exactly a show.  And heck, it deserves its own topic.

Crunchyroll just announced a PS3 app.  This makes me quite happy.  In case you don't know, Crunchyroll is pretty much the best way to watch current anime shows (legally).  They stream subtitled anime simulcasted with their Japanese airtime.  Funimation and Viz stream some of their own stuff too (they usually put it on Hulu too), but they don't have nearly the selection that CR does.

I already have a PC plugged into my TV pretty much just for watching streaming stuff, but this is potentially more convenient (and I never configured the TV for proper 5 channel audio output...).  Crunchyroll is doing 720p and even 1080p streams now so the quality should be great.

I just want to say that I think the music pack for this game is the single greatest piece of DLC I have ever encountered.  I don't care that it's already on the disc.  In fact I'm glad it's already on the disc, because there's probably gigabytes of music there and I don't want to have to download it an have it take up space on my PS3 hard drive.  It's just $3 and it gives you access to music from like every Atelier game ever made.  Man, why couldn't the previous games have had this feature?  You spend so much time in the workshop in all three games that it's seriously nice to be able to change the background music.  (Of course you can do it for more than the workshop, but the workshop is my main concern).  Bravo, Gust.  You rock.

By the way, has anyone else found that it's much harder to craft equipment with the HP regen trait in this game than it was in Totori?  I managed to do it once but I don't even know what I did...now I'm fumbling around with every possible combination of ingredients I can think of and I'm not getting it to work a second time...

All PS3s play PS1 games.

It's not Vita compatible?  I can understand when that happens for older games, but you would think they would check that for new releases...

I'm not tossing my PSP anytime soon, but I pretty much just use it for imports these days.  Even when I get a Vita (haven't yet, but I still plan to) it seems pretty inconvenient to play PSN versions of import games because of the account restrictions.

Grim, part of me wants to ask you a question. But I don't think I want to know the answer.
Mesh. I'm not really sure I want you to ask that question. I can only imagine.

I want to see him ask you the question!  Just to see what chaos ensues.

I can't disagree with you more about Cyan.  He's got one of the best skills in the game.  Especially his level 7 swdtech (quadra slice), which can do more damage than any other single attack.  Yes it takes time to charge, but pair him up with Gao or Umaro and they'll keep attacking even while he charges.  And once you learn Quick, well, that's that.  Enemies can't do anything while you charge if you've cast Quick (and you get to do it twice).  Cyan+Quick is the biggest damage-dealer in the game (at least to a single target, obviously if there are lots of targets you'll want area effect spells).

This is a great improvement.

What is it with women and hair?

I would have my daughter shave her head bald if she did that to a kid. But in this day and age, mom thinks she knows best....which is why the girl did this in the first place, cuz mom is doing such a great job, right?

I don't understand what your comment has to do with the article...

Interesting opinion piece on the controversy over the game's inclusion of a sexual assault scene and the disingenuous response of the developer.

Wow, what a crock of shit that article is.  Sorry, but the developer's response was not disingenuous at all.  That artcle's selective quoting is.

What the developer actually said:
“Sexual assault of any kind is categorically not a theme that we cover in this game.”

How the author of the article goes on to misquote it:
To start - don’t show a trailer where a dude pushes a terrified girl against a wall and tries to grab her ass while slobbering all over her neck… then tell us “sexual assault of any kind” isn’t in the game.

The author needs to look up the word 'theme' in the dictionary...

Nah Klyde, this and Mugen Souls are too obscure for anyone to make a big deal out of.
