Ooh, you're going to have some trouble with that. The game is hard enough with level grinding.

It's like the armor's two sizes too small!

You know what's really annoying about the Mana series? The later games could have been much better, if they had just put a bit more effort into them. Dawn of Mana needed to get the camera and level-up system fixed, Heroes needed to deal with the path-finding issue and Children...admittedly that one was just kind of mediocre. It wasn't bad though. Fun for what it was.

Heroes had a pretty good plot, and it set up SD3 pretty well, but the gameplay was clearly a tech-demo for FFXII: Revenant Wings, and Dawn had some good ideas but awful execution. Again, Children of Mana seemed to be exactly what they were aiming for, they just didn't aim very high.

Square Enix just kept phoning them in.

I don't think the reviewer was saying it was bad because the character is white, it's bad because the main character looks exactly like the generic space marine archetype. If the guy was black, that would at least be a departure from the incredibly generic character design.

The first one is Final Fantasy Adventure or Sword of Mana for the remake.

Mystic Quest is something else.

The one issue I had with NAGI's art was the occasional side character with an outfit that was just WTF. Like Tenba President Ayano from AT1. That outfit just looked extremely uncomfortable and seconds away from a bizarre and painful malfunction.

See below.

I actually pulled my stake because of the uncertainty and all that. I can just buy it if it gets funded.

I funded the Wakfu animated series one instead. :-)

And in Ar Tonelico 3 the guys did have to strip too for their special attacks. Not much attention was drawn to it admittedly, but it did happen.
24  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Gust making a spiritual successor to Ar Tonelico: Ar no Surge on: January 28, 2014, 06:21:08 PM
Yeah, actually. Ciel no Surge is a...non-standard game with an episodic structure that functions kind of like an odd visual novel, for a rather badly performing console. I would like it to come out, but I understand why it probably won't.

Ar no Surge, on the other hand, is a PS3 RPG that apparently has some direct connections to Ar Tonelico. It sounds pretty likely to me.

Battle footage.

It looks a little like a cross between Ar Tonelico 1 and 2's battle system with a little bit of free movement, but I'm not entirely sure.

And it also looks like you fight armies in the battles.

At least the anime bits look better than the incredibly cheap looking Atelier Iris 1 opening.

I am convinced that Gust made that in house for whatever reason. Either that or they got stiffed.

The official opening has been put on Youtube.

And interestingly, Earth shows up for a second at one point, and maybe shows up once or twice otherwise. You can see Africa and South America clearly. I'm really curious what that's about.

Although it might be something dumb like we silenced our world.

There's always White Knight Chronicles.
29  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Unsung Story: A Kickstarter by Yasumi Matsuno. on: January 18, 2014, 10:13:09 AM
Even though I've never cared for the story and characters that Matsuno creates because of how poorly structured it is, I've always loved the way he handles strategy elements. So I hope to god that this comes to PC at least and not on a mobile phone where I actually have to deal with my iPhone.

It's coming to PC. The initial basic release is for IOS, Android and PC.

I hope it hits 900k because then they get Alexander O. Smith on board and while this seems to be in English from the start, he can do the faux-shakespearean thing well.
