There's also other references to it with characters, such as "Braev Lee."

Laptop is working again for no apparent reason.

Story of my life.

Wow, I was literally about to post that word-for-word, Kael. Ha.

Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of Something to do with Dusk.

My experience playing this game is an incredibly odd one. I abhor the characters (except Logy, I like being able to play a male alchemist), and I feel like all of them (bar Escha and Logy) are pretty much irrelevant to the game as a whole (I'm in year 3, so I might still be missing some). The story is, uh, there isn't one, just a series of tasks. While I have less of a problem with that than the characters, it'd be nice to have more interesting motivation other than "MARION SAYS GO DO THIS."

All that said, the gameplay is still good. The changes from Ayesha (and Arland) are great, and I actually just sat and played for nearly 3 hours--which is a massive period of time for me to play at once. So I'm definitely enjoying all the alchemy and combat, though I feel like there's less exploration in Dusk than Arland, which is not so good.

I miss Sterk. :(

I think Tomara is more getting at it was a nice change, rather than "I like these cause I hated the others."

To be fair, I am only about half-way through Escha & Logy, but other than the titular characters, no one else has had any development aside from occasional random scenes that do nothing for them. I mean, when you first meet them all for the first time, they're pretty much just dumped on you as "here's a party member." There's no build up or intrigue about any of them at all. If you took away all their visuals and replaced them with the words "Party Member 1" etc., it really wouldn't change anything. I feel like they're pretty meaningless to the game.

I do hear where you're coming from, but at least the Arland heroes HAD personalities.

The Dusk games also have characters so boring I want to punch myself in the face.

I hate using jobs I've already mastered in boss battles, since I feel like the JP earned is wasted. But I think I have no choice in these new fights!

I've just started Chapter 7, and the increased side-boss difficulty surprised me. Need to rethink my strategies when dealing with them.

For the first half, absolutely - it's brilliant. Then everything goes downhill and you do exactly the same thing over and over and over again for another 20 hours (though I believe there's some sort of "shortcut" that skips most if it, but you won't see the true ending).

Overall, I would say yes. I've enjoyed it enough that I don't regret my purchase. But the difference in quality between the first and second half is like night and day.

So this game came out March 6th in Japan and I had it pre-ordered on Play-Asia.  It's March 12th over in that part of the world now and it hasn't even shipped yet.  I'm a little ticked off at Play-Asia now.  I even decided to pay for relatively quick shipping because I didn't feel like waiting (the cheapest shipping can take like a month), but now I'm wondering why I bothered if they're not even going to ship it for a whole week...

That's quite interesting, because I had problems with PlayAsia very recently as well. I ordered a different game at the start of Feb and it still hasn't arrived (should have taken 2 weeks). I sent them an email, and they did a run-around on me for a few weeks. Apparently they are now "investigating" as to where it went. >.>

Chapter 5 is killing me. Up until it started I was all like: "This is one of the best games I've played in years!" My opinion on it is continually worsening each time I play now. Why does this chapter even exist? Waste of space.

Ironically, visual novels tend to have some of the worst writing in video games. 999 has an awesome story, but there's no doubt some of the writing is wonky and unnecessary.

Pretty sure I already have the friend codes of most people here... but, just in case, does anyone know if they have Ditto in their friend safari? Hoping to find a Ditto safari for breeding purposes.
