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

Hmm, my apologies. I've never had issues with Siliconera before.  Maybe one of their ads is bad?

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.

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.

I desperately miss the 1984 vibes from the first game.  I feel like XIII had an atmosphere, a tone in general. XIII-2 lacks that.

I, too, was pleasantly surprised at the depth of the monster developing. It went above and beyond my expectations.

True enough, but a powerful opening can stick with you more thoroughly than the game itself.  Chrono Cross comes to mind.
864  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Megami Tensei Topic on: May 24, 2012, 08:20:43 PM
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.
866  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Kingdoms of Amalur on: May 24, 2012, 04:34:15 PM
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?
868  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Graces F on: May 23, 2012, 08:14:41 PM
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.
870  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Demon's Souls on: May 11, 2012, 12:38:50 AM
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.
