Mine shipped from NOA's store - I'm excited!

How does this look on a HDTV?  Would it be better on SD?

Yeah, it's getting worse than the Namco Facebook page, and that's saying something.

Do they whine about Tales localizations?  Because that's what happens in every Namco article on other sites.

More pictures.

I'm finding the Pupus to be far more adorable than is probably healthy.

What novels?

Episode Zero and Episode i.

Episode Zero was Japan-only and introduced each character and their motivation.  Really, it's must-read material because it actually expands on their characters greatly.

Episode i was actually officially localized and offered as a pre-order bonus from Best Buy.  It's a short little hardcover book that elaborated on the events between FFXIII and XIII-2.

Both can be found fan-translated online. Google "Dilly Dally Shilly Shally."

Given the rather bored (I wouldn't quite say "negative," but certainly "unimpressed") reaction even Japan had to loli Rorona from Meruru in general, I don't think they would be too averse to an older character.  Totori definitely got Rorona's maturity right in that regard.

I think there's a lot they can do with the female characters, but they're afraid to venture out too far- and quite honestly, given the state of Japan's market, I don't entirely blame them.  Whether or not you realize it, there was a huge shitstorm when the Iris games were released.  At least they seemed to have learned their lesson from AT3 in that overt sexuality doesn't necessarily make a better game.  Having a character who needs to be protected isn't necessarily a bad thing, given Alchemists for the most part aren't fighters, they're crafters.  For me, the issue is that, for the most part, they all have relatively similar personalities despite their quirks.  

But Iris from Iris 3 is a lot like what you seem to be looking for, yes?

I just read that.

Guess I'll import the Euro version. There's absolutely no reason for this.

XSeed can just fuck off.

It's more likely SCEA than XSEED.

Having played Hakuoki recently, I'm way more excited for this than I probably should be.

. . .I think they look pretty good, haha.

Annie did that.  She only became an Alchemist because she was, literally, dragged from her house and forced into it.  And even then she only became one so she could marry the Prince.  Not because she loved the Prince, but because he was rich and would make her set for life with his money.   She was lazy and did not particularly care about the art until later.

As leaked a few weeks ago, Gilgamesh.

Haha, Demon's Souls' Tower of Latria stressed me out badly.  I played it at ~2AM in the dark with the screams, moans, and instant kill enemies and man, my heart was beating fast.  It had an amazing atmosphere alongside the difficulty.

I didn't really feel any of the stress in Dark Souls, mostly because I had gotten over it in Demon's.  You should be okay.

If you want to be literal, Cheria is the strongest.  No, I'm not joking, YouTube it.

Her high accuracy makes her absolutely beastly and she stunlocks out of the ass.  Frozen Rain in itself is broken, but the majority of her A-Artes are powerful.  She has a very high difficulty curve, though.

Good news for those of you who dislike the Atelier time limits.

More details about Atelier Ayesha: Alchemist of the Ground of Dusk are coming out and the game won’t have a time limit like other Atelier titles.

On another note, even the name seems to imply this game is somewhat darker in theme, even if the more subdued color palette didn't tip you off on that.
854  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Atelier Ayesha on: April 02, 2012, 02:34:57 PM
That is nice.  Very elegant.
855  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Atelier Ayesha on: April 02, 2012, 08:36:32 AM
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.
