I'd say if NISA doesn't mention it at their press event, it's been cancelled.  I don't think we should judge until then.

I heard the event is early this year. Any exact date on it?

Honestly, Pascal is the only one who doesn't work well into the group chemistry for me.  She has some cute moments early on, but she ruins far more of them, especially later, where her entire character starts to feel out of place.  I think she needed to calm down at least a tiny bit after a certain point if they wanted her to fit in. The writers pushed too hard, methinks.
But she and Hubert do work nicely together.  She lightens him up, and he will make her a bit more serious.

That said, Team Destiny did use a story element I'm quite fond of, despite almost every other plot twist being seen from a mile away.
The true antagonist dies well before the game ends, but you don't realize it at the time. And everything you happened to
learn about the one that at first "appears" to be the true antagonist happened to be a lie.  Yet you can't do anything about it; lie
or not, Sophie is still programmed to kill him and he is a threat to the world.

Also, the Asbel costume with his hair parted to the side is so, so, so much better than his normal look.

New screens.  Very, very interesting. It's like he took Wizardry one step further.

Since I'm not sure there's enough information to warrant the creation of a new thread, Gust has leaked a few tidbits about Project Atelier 14. Meruru is A13.

A feeling I had about this game from the get go was finally proved undeniably true today. The 'T' rating is hurting the narrative badly.

This story is all but visibly bulging through the restraint cracks the 'T' places on it. The scene in question which pretty much solidified this in my mind is


It's less the T rating, but CERO's rating system.  CERO is not nearly as lenient on certain regards (blood, violence) as the ESRB is, just a small bit of blood can make the rating go higher.  It's cultural, as expected.  Tales usually gets pretty low CERO ratings so they have the wider audience. Bamco likely wanted to avoid it.

Absolutely agreed about that scene in particular though, it really hurt the impact and made it almost comical.  Even just a splash or a few droplets would have fixed it.

And yes, the anime is absolutely horrible.  I'm amazed that with the Tales of budget they can't afford better quality.  Even Gust games have better animation.  Ar tonelico 2's looks lovely.

They changed her hair color because it looked better with the Cerberus uniform they settled on and dark hair better suited her "femme fatale" persona.  That's the story I heard.

The prior default was a red head, or at least auburn. Going with red was the most fitting to maintain consistency between games, nevermind that most people preferred it. If she was blond from the start I'd have no problem, but I'd h ate to have a completely different looking Shepard suddenly made the default for the last chapter, even though it seems they kind of did that anyway face-wise.

He was talking about Miranda, not FemShep, I think.  The early designs do show Miranda as blonde.

Did you see the backlash that happened when Bioware attempted to make the "default" Shepard blonde?  Apparently, being blonde makes you shallow and look too much like a model.

The whole situation was ridiculous.

I don't really wear that style of shirt casually anyway; maybe I'm just too formal. I always planned to use it as a nightgown.  I use my Catherine one as a nightie, too.

Thanks for the notification that the Pre-Order is up, I guess they didn't send out the Prinny Bomb yet.

I'll definitely be getting the SE (like I always do with Gust titles).

Is the voice acting for this game as bad as it seems in all the trailers?  Honestly I'm starting to think I should have just imported it...

Kate Higgins (Pascal) did a brilliant job for the role she was given. She really gives life to the character, despite some of the obnoxious lines.  I don't like the character or her writing, but I can fully admit Higgins did beautifully with her. Cheria is played by Laura Bailey, and Laura is always good.

Asbel took me a while to become used to and he's nowhere near Troy Baker (Yuri) level.  Richard's actor is weak at first, but comes off better later in the story after a few events.

On an amusing note, some of the generic guards are played by Wes Johnson (Imperial Male from Morrowind/Oblivion/Skyrim). I was laughing hard; he's a great actor, but I couldn't stop hearing "Stop right there, Criminal Scum!"

Thanks.  I'll be getting this when I have the time, then, too many games for me at the moment.  I love Thatgamecompany.

I would really hate it if Liara had Shepard's kids regardless given that my Sheps romanced Garrus and Thane. I mean, Liara got really pushed on us as it were.

Yeah, I romanced Garrus as well, I don't want it.

But you have to admit, "special gift" and "different type of mind meld" really make it seem like that's what she was hinting at.

That time skip, haha.
I feel like I'm suddenly getting a good hold on the battle system, attacks and evasions becoming smooth, then suddenly, they double the amount I have to deal with.

I'm sure I'll get used to it, but those first few battles - they were terrible, re-getting to know everything.

I thought Yomi was rather easy, just time consuming.  But, then again, I was completely capped out when I fought him.  Not even his strongest attack could one-hit me without Sentinel (though it did hurt).

I second Serah's solo battle being the hardest.  But hey, playstyles.  I'd personally like a Hard mode, because I felt the game was too easy overall.  Even the Long Gui was much, much easier than the Long Gui in XIII.

I'm sure they'll add some super boss via DLC.  Is Lightning hard?

I know it isn't really the point, but how is the single player experience?
