That is nice.  Very elegant.

Well to each their own. I felt the Iris series was best at 1, but went downhill from there because it had less focus on Alchemy and NPC character interaction, which is what makes the rest of the games so good.

Mana Khemia is just a different beast entirely.  They had a stroke of brilliance with the battle system.  They should make a sub series or an entirely new series with a similar battle system, because, admittedly, it's a huge departure from everything Atelier is about but is also too good to just throw away.  I was hoping this was what they would do with Ar tonelico, but. . .

That said, for the graphics, I think they need to start adding more physics to the clothes. Is that a big request? Perhaps.  They look beautiful in stills now, I think if they fine tuned the detail and the movement it would help considerably in motion.

It's due out in Japan on June 26th. Now that we have some screens and information, I figured it deserved a thread.

I really like the foggy, darker look the field environments have taken.

That's amazing.  There are little DQ monsters all over, too, haha.

I love Skies of Arcadia, I'll definitely buy it again.

I read through the thread, but couldn't find any information in it.  Has a date for the demo been released?
802  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on: March 30, 2012, 09:49:21 PM
The Bravely Default name actually makes sense now that he describes it.  It doesn't make it less Engrish-y, of course, but I understand its connotation and it's no longer just random words thrown together.

Hmm, judging from what I see going around, people are more upset with the idea of censoring the game in general.  I'd say the minority within the minority actually care about the bath scenes, and even fewer find them sexy or attractive, but the shitstorm is because NISA is altering content.

Or maybe I'm just trying to internally rationalize something I don't understand and am completely off.
804  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: NISA Announces 3 PS3 RPG Releases on: March 30, 2012, 06:06:40 PM
I admit, it baffles me how people on certain sites are so fiercely defending Mugen Souls.

I think NISA made the right choice in censorship here. 
805  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: NISA Announces 3 PS3 RPG Releases on: March 30, 2012, 12:16:41 PM
Legasista is roguelike-ish.

Hundred Knights is real time and open world. It's an ARPG, I believe.
806  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: NISA Announces 3 PS3 RPG Releases on: March 30, 2012, 12:02:12 PM
Mugen Souls- Yep, seems like fairly typical !f/Compile Heart.  I felt creepy reading that aspect Kevadu pointed to.  But a part of me is still somewhat morbidly curious if the "altered" aspects affect the game any (i.e. both the Japanese and NA versions of the Albedo-Momo torture scene in Xenosaga I got the point across, even if they were different).

Witch and 100- As long as this game is better than that DS game A Witch's Tale, then there's hope.  The game does have that Halloween cutesy appearance, but again, I feel totally creepy looking at that protagonist.  

That Albedo torture scene actually ended up creepier without the blade.  I mean, would you rather see someone cut their head off with a knife, or rip it off with their hands?  

Also, a Witch's Tale was partially developed by Hit Maker; Hundred Knights is entirely a NIS product.

What needed censoring?  I haven't been watching the game.

I refer to my previous post.

Thanks.  That's a bit too much for me.
808  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: NISA Announces 3 PS3 RPG Releases on: March 30, 2012, 02:31:03 AM
I'm dumbstruck Mugen Souls is coming here. Then again they ARE censoring some stuff, so maybe it shouldn't be a huge problem.

I AM interested in the other two games though.

What needed censoring?  I haven't been watching the game.

And likely you'd need a game that'd also draw in the WD crowd more. If this were, say, Growlanser 1 you'd probably have a lot of people eager to throw money at this, whereas here it's... even if it's better will it have become something I WANT?

I'd donate to a Growlanser fund, I admit.
810  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Class of Heroes 2 Kickstarter by MonkeyPaw Games and Gaijin Works on: March 28, 2012, 01:00:43 AM
I adore first person dungeon crawlers, they're probably my favorite subgenre of RPGs.  I found Class of Heroes boring and, no matter how hard I tried, couldn't spend more than 10 hours with it.  I can't say I'm all that interested unless they made some changes to the formula.

That said, I think this type of thing is an understandable idea.  Localization of these games is a niche within a niche.  To reduce the risk, let those who are willing to assist do so. Now if this was for a larger game and a larger company? Absolutely not.
