I've not played 2 yet, but as far as I'm aware, there is no female protagonist.  You can check it on the Agarest wiki:

Which, by the way, is also very good for getting 100% in these games.

I hate this damn area with the ghosts across the two wooden bridges. D:<

New Londo.

I love New Londo.  The atmosphere is marvelous.

I don't know much about the game, but I know this song is pretty unique alright: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHNTntvWENQ
Sounds like some kind of retro anime song.

That's one of the sub-boss battle themes.  You can choose whether or not to have the lyrics in battle by speaking to a NPC.  It's purposely designed to be campy like that, methinks.  And, for what their goal was, they succeeded.

I personally prefer the airy-ness of Totori's soundtrack and found Rorona's to be more memorable (the generic town theme from Rorona never gets old with its bagpipes), but Meruru's generic battle theme is something of utter brilliance.

For those who like Mana Khemia, one of the "big boss" themes was composed and the guitar played by the guy who did Nefertiti.

I like Esty's mega-super-move.

EDIT: Oh. Just wondering, this is the only Arland game i've played, but is her name supposed to sound like STD? 

Yeah, Esty's last name wasn't Dee in Japanese.  That was NISA's doing.

I'm honestly surprised about this.  This is one I didn't expect to see Stateside.

Not that I'm aware of.  At least - not yet.  I'd say there's probably a good chance of localization, given the popularity of the game.  Really, though, there's no need for it because there's so little text (a few names of weapons and armor here and there, NPC names).  All that really needs translating are the 4 pages of interview.

There's a lot less text than the average artbook.

A bit late, but the Dark Souls design works has been out for a few months now in Japan.

I received  my copy today - it's hardcover, 125 pages, with about 120 of them being art.  It's relatively inexpensive for an import (I was able to get it for $30 + $10 shipping), so if you enjoy the game, it's probably worth it. Much, much better than the crap artbook found with the (North American) LE.

You're right!
864  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Gust announces new Atelier game: Atelier Meruru on: June 04, 2012, 05:41:47 AM
Mid-way through Year 2 now. The new mechanics and refinements from the previous two games are fantastic. Definitely the best gameplay-wise of the three.

Also, I am having an excitement overload right now (probably lame, I know) because I can have (minor character recruitment spoiler):

Sterk and Esty and Gino in my party. Now if only I could kick Meruru so I could have all three at once...

There's another Rorona character you can recruit that's NG+ only.

I'm not quite sure what to think.  Here's a link, by the way.

866  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dark Souls on: June 01, 2012, 07:36:16 PM
Hmm, my apologies. I've never had issues with Siliconera before.  Maybe one of their ads is bad?
867  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dark Souls on: May 31, 2012, 07:00:45 AM
Good news.


ADMIN EDIT: Old link replaced due to virus concerns.

I prefer Totori myself, because I dislike (the character) Rorona in Meruru.  They just butchered her.   But I can fully accept that Meruru (the game) is an improvement in many ways.

Other things I prefer from Totori: The music, the atmosphere, the story, and the lead female.
On the other hand, Meruru has the infinitely superior cast all around, with most of the best characters from both games making an appearance and having a part to play.  Save for Totori and Ceci, I found most of Totori's new cast to be rather dull; Meruru's new characters are almost universally better in that regard.
869  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Gust announces new Atelier game: Atelier Meruru on: May 29, 2012, 05:49:38 PM
Meruru is very comparable to Totori.

And Totori was exceedingly lenient once you got past the first year or two.  As in, "finish everything possible in the game and still have a year left" lenient.  That's how it generally is with Atelier titles; usually the beginning is very frantic and you feel like you're stuck heavily under a time limit, doing everything you can, wasting as little time as possible. . .only to have the time limit ease up as you learn the game and progress further.

I actually think Sony might be the one keeping it online, by the wording in the press release. To lose such an important component of one of the PS3's highest rated exclusives would be a hit to the console.
