Kevadu echoes my thoughts on the battle system.


I'm not gonna say I won't be getting it. I probably will, just that it won't necessarily be anywhere near the release date.

:D I love it!


Fun fact: Those two porclien bottles near the toaster are for ketchup and brown sauce, but we think squeezy bottles are better at that so we put chocolate sauce and toffee in them :D

@Yoda: Our flat isn't that big so no fancy kitchens for us. ;_;

Baking cookies today and I'm on my third batch. Been experimenting with size but I'm going to go for small ones-- they'll fit better into the jar.

Kitchen is an apocalyptic mess, though. Oh wells.



It cannot be as bad as when I attempted making the RPGfan cake.

Yep, pretty much. Japan had a meeting about it. They decided as a nation to stop making good games just to troll us.

They stopped making good RPGs.  They still make plenty of good games in other genres.

Oh? It's just RPGs?

Well, I don't know about you but I don't think Japan trying hard enough here. Clearly their heart isn't in it.

Atelier isn't her name :P

An atelier is an artistic workshop.

70 hours here but I am a massive time waster.

It seems strange to me to criticize a game for having an element of randomness when it was designed specifically to have randomness.

I hate eating strawberry ice cream because it doesn't taste of mint. :[

This is truly a mystery.

It doesn't really matter, my first Atelier was Atelier Iris 2.
2968  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: May 31, 2011, 07:48:24 PM
I am particularly fond of the battle system. The "cards" at the top. Especially when you get the character who's speciality is manipulating them. I've never really seen that done before.

curious Starmongoose, how are the Atelier games different from Mana Khemia and the Atelier games not released here, I was gonna play Iris but decided on Mana instead (no real reason, just grabbed it first, lol) but now you have me curious about differences.

Well, the Atelier Iris games are more like your traditional RPG, questing to save the world from the evil bad guy, but with a strong focus on item creation. Though really you only need to make an item once because when you create it the first time you can then replicate it by spending Elements, which you collect by breaking down objects. Like breaking a rock gets you Stone elements and breaking a shrub gets you Water and Wood elements.

The Atelier games that were never brought over here were less about the saving the world and more about meeting the deadlines. Item creation was probably more in depth as well, to make up for lack of emphasis on battle. You are pretty much relegated to making things the hard way at all times, not handy dandy elements.

Mana Khemia is like a happy medium. You have your deadlines for creating items, but also a reason to battle, since there is a villian who needs stopping. My favourite of all the games.

Atelier Annie is a lot more like the Atelier games that were never brought over here. Atelier Violet and so on. Atelier Iris and Mana Khemia are, while still pretty much in the same vein, quite different.
