True enough, but a powerful opening can stick with you more thoroughly than the game itself.  Chrono Cross comes to mind.

I like the new opening theme better, but the entire first half with the dancing just turns me away.

Judging by how much money they put into it and we've barely heard anything at all, it seems like a case of bad management and foolish allocation of resources.

That's very sad, I was hoping for more games in the universe.

Maybe they'll sell the IP?

Are the FPS issues present in the final version, or is it simply a demo problem?

About 70 hours in this game. At the last dungeon. New requests just keep popping up...

Are these scripted, or are the generic item requests randomized? There are a few quests with key items I have yet to complete.

Probably about time to finish this game off, but it seems every turn there is a new event or side quest that opens up!

They're scripted and eventually stop.  Once you finish them all, you fight a new boss (which also gives a trophy).

It's very different from past games. 

This is not a bad thing.  You can definitely tell they're going for a change in theme and atmosphere.

I like Dark and Demon's about equally.  I think for the most part Demon's has the better atmosphere (Dark's mainly atmospheric in New Londo), but Dark has better roleplaying opportunities.

In all honesty, with Meruru and Totori the timed aspect only really is an issue during the first ~1/3 of the game.   It's flexible, you just have to realize that time really isn't a big issue. You can sacrifice 10-20 days and not suffer. Months, even.  It's a bit stricter in Rorona (which plays like the older games).

I finished everything in Totori with a year and a half to spare and just slept through the last year.  I've not 100%'d Meruru yet, because I'm waiting for the English version, but it's very similar and even more lenient than Totori when it comes to the time limit because it lacks the Adventurer ranks.

I liked the Lastalia Shaft.  I loved how it just threw you in there and made you find your way through without guidance.  It felt exactly like a final dungeon should.  But I love my first person dungeon crawlers, so that could have something to do with it.

. . .Until the status effect area. On Chaos.

That was just terrible.

Sterk is amazing, easily the best character in the Arland series.

It doesn't help that his English voice actor is Liam O'Brien, who just happens to be my favorite male VA.

Do a lot of companies just translate and send the translation back like that??  Never heard of that one.

Yes. NISA and Aksys do it as well.

Future Arc first.  The enemies are much easier.  You use your Clear Save after you've beaten Future Arc for Zhonecage, so you keep your progress.

It gets even stranger when you read Mel's artbook comments.  He wants to draw "sexy" heroines and at times in purposely revealing poses.  GUST apparently told him to do it a few times as well.

I just don't know sometimes.

The first Iris has the best music in the series, in my opinion, mostly due to "Eternal Eyes" and how Iris started the use of the subtle background vocals they used for the next ~5 games.  Totori's music shares its wispiness, so they somewhat thematically have the same sound. This is a very, very good thing. Much of the earlier games are more upbeat.  Totori also had that really brilliant battle theme "Terminus" based off of Pilgrimage that is quite possibly my favorite of their more emotional battle themes.  I did find Dia to be rather boring, not bad, just not memorable.

My favorite battle theme from GUST, non Ar tonelico,  is Carmine.  It reminds me a bit of something from Sound Team JDK.

On the subject of Meruru, I played it a few months ago.

Sometimes I wonder what the hell GUST is thinking.  I swear they absolutely ruined Rorona. Poor Sterk.
