What is wrong with Atlus?

Admittedly I am a Gust fanboy but I have always liked games either published or developed by Atlus.

I could slightly understand if it was a concert as they are a one time only event but...this is a bit extreme.

Started Suikoden VI and got up to shortly after recruiting Lucretia.

A spark of hope was utterly dashed.

I have been playing The Dark Spire. Needless to say I have been dying quite often. I managed to get through both Etrian Odyssey games but this game may hate me even more.

All excitement I had vanished into the depths of Hell when I read Idea Factory.

Sometimes I think I am the only person in the world who enjoys their Neverland series. Sure, they may never explain how anything works ingame but looking past the learning curve the games are usually quite unique.

Thankfully for me at least they seem to be releasing a ton of the games recently.

I would not say they have run out of talent. I think part of it has to do with everyone's high expectations of them. A lot of people prefer their older games. There is nothing wrong with that, although it is unfair to translate their old games being better equals their new games being bad.

Does the name Dagger sound any better in Japanese?

I will probably get this although chances are high that I will remain trying to get 100 at the sword fight. Doubly so if I try it on psp.

Buffs and status affecting abilities are generally useless in most rpgs. You rarely if ever need to use them.

Also for some reason I find it very difficult to like final dungeons. You get the feeling you have seen a similar place in many other rpgs while the huge size of the place means that feeling only grows worse.

The game has over thirty endings (although this technically may be true, you will probably only see two or three different endings at most)

Although being Irish, I have so far resisted wishing France be knocked out as soon as possible. Some of us have...trouble letting things go.

I am personally rooting for South Africa to at least get into the quarter finals. Although they could be in a tougher group the odds are stacked against them.

Suddenly after discovering who the main villain is, I suddenly really wanted to watch this movie.
790  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: June 14, 2010, 05:25:05 PM
I am currently watching Working!! and Arakawa under the bridge. Arakawa under the bridge oddly reminds me of Sayonara Zabuso Sensei. In the beginning I found some of the characters slightly annoying but you quickly warm up to them.

Mangawise I am reading Hoshi no Samidare(Which I am loving) and Yankee kun to Megane Chan.
791  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: 'Hard' RPGs on: June 14, 2010, 05:15:56 PM
Along with Nocturne I would probably chose Etrian odyssey and the dark spire. Both are dungeon crawlers and both seem to take pleasure in seeing you die (I still have nightmares of Primevil from etrian odyssey. The only boss I found harder was the demi-fiend from Digital Devil Saga 1)

Generally I find that if Atlus have anything to do with the game, chances are high I will see the game over screen more than once.
792  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPGs with the best: Story, Characters, Atmosphere, and Plot twists? on: June 14, 2010, 05:10:33 PM
Story I have always liked the story told in Final fantasy VI. Although it has its fair share of cliches they are told rather well and do not detract from the story. It was probably the first rpg I had played that had such mature themes such as Celes attempted suicide (oops, I meant "leap of faith") in the beginning of the world of ruin.

Characters I have always liked the characters in the Suikoden series. The characters personalities on both sides were neither black or white but rather shades of grey. The characters were well developed for such a huge cast.

Plot twist Digital devil saga 2. The only plot twist more unexpected than that at the end was the true identity of Sera's father.

Atmosphere I always loved the atmosphere in Guardian Crusade(also known as Knight and Baby) If you just look at screenshots of the game you would probably think I was insane but there is just something there that can only be explained by playing it yourself.
