The Atelier book is simply a localized version of what came out in Japan some time ago.  Of the Arland trilogy, it only has Rorona (11).  I don't believe it has the side games, either, like Annie.  It does have Mana Khemia.

Oh, and I know this is the wrong thread, but there's also an Ar tonelico one coming out if you're interested in that.  I love NAGI's Ar tonelico designs, but I already own the Japanese ones, so I'm conflicted.

Yeah, I get torn at these decisions too -- having the artist's own commentary (or whatever staff) really spruces up the experience.  I'm curious if the ArTone will be all three since they're all released (unlike the Rorona/Totori/Maruru series).  They're pretty cheap too, especially compared to the actual Japanese rates.

Just in case anyone is interested, the Atelier series artbook is being released in English on April 12th.  Old news, I know, but I didn't know about it, so I figure some of you who are interested in the series might not know, either.

It covers Atelier Project 1-11 (Rorona is 11) as well as Mana Khemia.

It's currently $23.00 where other sites have it for $40. 
http://www.amazon.com/Atelier-Official-Chronicle-Gust/dp/1926778200

It's being published by Udon.

Ordered it and the Valkyria one.  The Tony one looked tempting, but...  I'm eyeing some renaissance books at Chapters.

Thank you!! =D

Is the art in that book only based on Rorona or on all 3 games?

IIRC, 11 titles to Rorona, don't know about the two after (unlikely).  There was a book like this in Japan, might be the same thing.

Why do some people find showering so difficult? I'm never going to an anime convention because of this.

Fuck me,

Fuck me, I hate that.  Canadian summers are usually pretty humid, making it much, much worse, especially at conventions.  FUCKING DEODORANT.  USE IT.  It's like Two Bucks!!   Note to the wise if any of you here don't use it - not a turn on. x(

Had another pet peeve today, again, at school.  I hate when cute little girlfriends are walking down the corridor, like at least 2 or 3 girls across, and they're so busy talking, they walk at a snail's pace and it's hard to get passed them.  GRR.

Playing a bit of Valkyria Chronicles.  I love how Isara refers to having two dads since she was adopted - it always leads me to think she had homosexual parents in that sense, and I can't help but love it for that. x)

Anyways, cannon goes a BOOM BOOM muthafucka!!!

I'm pretty sure even Squeenix acknowledges it as a failure to some extent.  It made sales, but how many people traded it after and panned it as being dogshit.

FF12 at least offered some freedom (but shitty means of traveling).  I remember hating how *everything* had to be found and built up.  This works in Sim City, but not in an RPG.  It's been said; the license grid, poor economy (just as bad in 13 actually), finding the gambit pieces to get characters to do something that should be common sense.  Then Squeenix likes to go back, waay back, and bring something more traditional (but not very modern/intuitive).  Credit to them for trying something new, it's unfortunately the thing that denies us a more classic experience, and they have trouble finding some in-between of classic gameplay with a few modern elements.

Anyways, at the very least they gotta get their shit together.  12 had it's fans, fine.  13?  14?!?!  Bleh.  Something's wrong -- games should not be continuously shitty like that.  Hell, look at Rockstar games, they embody the company name with almost every title.

I wonder if FF4 (the new PSP one) will tell them anything about what they do for here.
.... hopefully FF6 remake!! :D

I got it.  They gave the Premium Edition, so I'm walking around with the stupid Bracer Pin and all that.  Unfortunately, my brother has the PSP, so I sit and wait.  Got Valkyria Chronicles for a stupid cheap price to keep me company (tough game!  I like!).  One thing I hate about PSP, is the internet isn't much fun to use, and last time the PSP was with him for a while, a perma-scratch, a thick one, blurs that part of the screen nicely....!!!  BASTARDO.  ANd tha'ts my story...  sorry.

I may take the money I had on my pre-order for Red Dead Redemption - since the world loves it. =)

Son of a Fucking Bitch!

This better not turn out to be another Terrenigma.

Yeah, as opposed to another Chrono Cross, Xenogears, Threads of Fate, Tales of Destiny, Tales of the Abyss, Arc the Lad 1-3, Legend of Mana, Lunar Silver Star Story, Lunar 2: Eternal Blue, Parasite Eve, Persona 2, Tactics Ogre, Xenosaga 1, Xenosaga 3...

Do I need to continue?

Have all those really not hit Europe??

Hell, have Xenoblade if that's the case, I'd almost feel bad NOT importing at this rate.  How interesting though, good for Xenoblade [Chronicles]!!  Enjoy the tasty music, albeit muddy-ass raphics.

Wasn't it the platform MMO?  Yeah - who cares.  Good, they saved themselves some time and resources - more actual titles!

Check out this 18000 word review as to why the game is a shit sandwich.

http://www.actionbutton.net/?p=630

I almost checked it out, but I realized I don't need 18,000 words worth of complaints.  If I wanted that and some humour, I go watch Yahtzee do it.... or listen to my mother (BA ZING, jk)
7467  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Legend of Legaia on: March 30, 2011, 09:48:24 PM
I couldn't stomach either Legaia game largely because battles are way too fracking slow.

I agree. It's a problem with a lot of late 90s/early 00s RPGs that the developers were too in love with their attack animations and overcomplication that it often slowed battles to a crawl. I prefer simple, fast turn-based battle systems (like the first two Suikodens or Press Turn) without having to input and watch needlessly lengthy multiple hit combos just to make an attack.

FF8 took years off my life. ... lierally.

0.0 Why does everything I say get twisted around into some deviant innuendo.



It's love.  Some members we hate on, some we just pick on.  Big difference in who we hate and who we pick on.

Ah, you sweet talker you. Is that what you say when a copper pulls you over. "Well, I liked you so much I was only speeding, usually I am mowing every motherfucker down like garden weeds".

I know it doesn't make any sense, just go with it.

How about "I was speeding hoping you'd pick me up ♥"

My dad's a cop; usually I just "happen" to flash his business card and I get off with a warning.

Annubis' reply about his name made me giggle x)
Dice is surprisingly taken often too.

i am now a fan of hatsune miku :o
i'm not gonna discuss the lyrics because i dont like argueing with idiots.
just want to clairify something because some people are idiots. the lyrics are NOT the reason i like the song. also like worlds end dancehall and i dont even know what the lyrics for that one mean.

Baah.. I thought that was a real, real hologram at first.  Some of Miku's stuff is okay - I find a lot of her songs really overrated though.
