I love my Vita and would consider this the ideal game for it.  Color me a tad disappointed.

It reminds me off all past Xeno-games at the same time. There's the space stuff from Saga, the character designs scream Gears and the big world is of course super Blade-like. Love it.

Not to mention Saga's silly acronyms, as Aeolus pointed out.

I'm assuming that if Demon's/Dark were spiritual successors to King's Field, this is a spiritual successor to Shadow Tower, which is definitely an ARPG.

I don't really think Tri-Ace is a large, or relevant, enough company in the west to announce games at E3 rather than in a Japanese publication or at TGS where they'd get a lot more coverage.  The timing is probably coincidence.

Is anyone really surprised that the meatier info is at TGS?  That's how it's always been.  Announcements at E3 if we're lucky, then info from Japanese events.

Anyone care to take bets on how panned is this going to be by reviewers?

I can't wait as well.

A new game was announced.


Forgive me if I'm not terribly thrilled.

The Japanese special edition comes with a figure (sculpted by Alphamax), in case anyone is interested. I don't really have a link to the announcement, but it's up on Amiami.

To be quite fair, Atelier's original purpose had nothing to do with story.  It wasn't even until Iris that it had a major focus at all. And the early games had such solid, complex gameplay that they could suffice without it.  But as GUST has become more lenient on restrictions, it's taken away the previously-imperative management and  almost changed the genre of the series entirely. They've needed to strengthen the story to make up for it.
Edit: Think Harvest Moon. 

On the subject of E&L's characters, I feel as if I'm on a totally different wavelength than the entire Japanese fanbase, or at least the fanbase GUST is hoping to pursue. Wilbell? Katla? Escha?  They are my least favorite characters in the game, yet they're the ones being brought to Shallie.   I can't help but feel this might have something to do with the more anime-styled push, which was clearly intentional if you read the developer notes.

There are also two PVC figures incoming for Zestiria.  Alicia by Alter, Koto's doing Slay.

I'll admit I'm more than a little miffed that Alter's skipping Judith.

Ham Sandwich retrospective

I appreciate all of the sandwiches commonly offered by delis, but like a good number of sandwich fans I only knew about ham sandwiches from more complex offerings but when I discovered that there were other sandwiches I had to try them out, I did not know that I would embrace ham and turkey sandwiches and they became some of my favorite sandwiches of all time... This is a video on the basic ham sandwich.

And holy shit was that ever a run-on sentence.

No matter how I feel about pastrami on rye (I don't hate it...it's just my least favorite sandwich...that does not mean it's bad, though), I have to thank delis everywhere because if it were not for pastrami on rye I would never have discovered the basic ham sandwich.

Which is kind of weird when you think about it.

And reubens are friggin awesome.  Visit my youtube channel.

Ew, ham sandwiches.

Peanut Butter+Banana is clearly the best option in all situations.

When E&L was first announced and Logy was said to use the Center's Alchemy style, I was expecting Ayesha and Keith to show up as partial/temporary antagonists, since Logy uses the Alchemical style they oppose.  I'm still holding onto that hope for Shallie.

It would be a huge missed opportunity if they didn't show up.

It's funny you mention that, because -
(Shallie spoilers below, not really any other game's):


It looks like Escha is in.  Honestly, it makes no sense for Escha to be in but not Ayesha, but I suppose there's still a possibility of Ayesha as well.  GUST is so strange sometimes.
29  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Surprise! Drakengard 3 (aka; how to damn "nier" lose your shit about old title) on: May 26, 2014, 11:51:37 PM
I honestly think they should have ditched the mission-based gameplay.  I don't really see its purpose beyond railroading you to your goal. I'm sure some people like it; I don't.

Also, it's ridiculous how bad the load times and slowdown are given how large the install was.  I have no idea how they managed that.

But more positively, the dialogue is adorable/hilarious/great.

Side Note: Tara Platt as Zero?  Not sure if want.  She's not bad at all, in fact I quite like her, but I do find her somewhat distracting since it's the same voice she uses for everything. At least when Laura Bailey did Kaine she used her deeper voice that isn't used on every other character.

I'm not exactly sure what you were expecting.  Drakengard 1 and 2 weren't exactly shining bastions of gameplay.  In fact, the first game was flat out unfun and miserable to play. They only really excelled at story and characters, which were good enough that it made the pain of playing somewhat tolerable.  2 was slightly better in the gameplay department, weaker in story and characters.

I guess more Nier and less Drakengard was expected/desired?
