The problem with Wild Arms 2 is mostly the crappy translation. It's...below par most of the time, but it absolutely breaks when Liz and Ard show up.

I hate that it's so fucking anime it hurts.  Not that the other titles were less anime, but this one really goes for the Shonen Anime feel that I want to punch Dean in the face in almost every cutscene he's in. 

Honestly, Dean is dumb by shonen anime standards. He takes the idea of the idiot hero to new and amazing heights. And most people want to smack him at least once while playing the game.

Looking at the openings for the Ar Tonelico trilogy, I noticed something interesting in the translations. All three have a bit at the beginning where they reference separating the listener from one world and showing them another. Did they have the idea for the meta stuff all the way back there? Ar Tonelico Qoga even has a program command line at the beginning.

I remember hearing that the infodump was actually added in the translated version. If that's true, it's at least better than not having most of the plot explained.

Minor spoilers (Not entirely sure how to spoiler block on this forum.)

Well, I just beat the game and I got the Ion/Earthes True Ending. I want more! This game was amazing. Yeah, it was obviously low budget and there were romanization issues, but if the story of Ar Tonelico II could shine through that awful translation, this game just needs some polishing.

Oh, and the song Ra Ciel Reincarnation is one of the most gorgeous things I have ever heard.

I hope more of the EXA_PICO universe is planned.

Well, I haven't finished the game yet, but I have completed Ion's Genometrics. One of the options you have when she asks why you put so much effort in is "I'm a completionist." I didn't pick it, but I'm a little curious about what her reaction to it was.

As a women I was kinda glad the game paired me up with Ion instead of a character like Cass. Maybe it's because I have a soft spot for smart sweethearts, but I thought she was pleasant to be around. Good taste in entertainment too. If I could weave whatever song magic I liked, I sure as hell would have chosen a big mechanical dragon as well!

Yeah, Ion is just likeable. And she's kind of unique. She's a gadgeteer genius, but she's also really nice and wants to help people. The reason she keeps insisting there's another way to solve things is also pretty good instead of just making her an idiot. She was asleep for most of the events on the Soleil, so of course her biases would be really different from the other characters.

When I play Xeno 2 I do that thing where you level the crap out of Shion on the Dammerung. It gets the battle system to the point where it's not easy, so to speak, but it's a lot less annoying.

So far I'm enjoying this game. It is a little strange that there's a little dance number every time you synthesize and item (totally serious about that), but I'm hooked.
25  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPGs you're ashamed to like? on: September 23, 2014, 09:20:26 PM
I like Rogue Galaxy, but it's mostly the aesthetic. Treasure Planet is one of my favorite movies and anything that reminds me of it gets my attention.

I am way too satisfied by spectacle. All the stuff around the gate to Eden was incredible to look at.

Also, this gorgeous song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9JkD0zt1ts

Well, they don't have to dub it. Most visual novels aren't. I'd be okay with Ciel nosurge not being dubbed, especially since Ar nosurge has a Japanese voice option.

There is one thing that makes a localization marginally more likely. Presumably Atlus could take an interest in it, since they're owned by Sega now.
28  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New NIS announcements - Battle Princess Arcadia and Fencer Fairy F for NA on: September 16, 2014, 07:31:54 PM
I'm interested, but Ar Nosurge is much higher on my interest list than this, so I'll eventually get Fairy Fencer F, but I'm definitely getting Ar Nosurge next week.

I'd get Meruru Plus for the Vita if it had a discount on the US store.
I didn't think Meruru was the best protagonist but as far as game goes, I think her game was the best by far.

I'm of the same opinion. It's amazing how much a visible indicator of progression helps keep you invested in the game. In the other Atelier games, you don't really see anything change beyond dialogue, but in Meruru, even if it's really superficial and only on the kingdom map, you can tell how well you're doing at any given time.

Uh, since Strange Journey, there's been SMT IV and Devil Survivor 2, not counting remakes and sequels.
