So Shiny Days keeps having Sekai and Setsuna say that "they are family because their moms are related somehow" and that their mothers say it's complicated.
Well, time to go back to the Overflow family tree.

Ok, so Sekai and Setsuna have the same father but in the case of Setsuna, her father is also her grandfather.
Also, Sekai's mother is the sister of Setsuna's grandmother.

Yeah... I'd also just tell the kids that "it's complicated".

Makoto having only 2 canon kids make him pretty damn tame compared to the other protagonists.

Despite my complaint of Endless Eight, I'm still super bummed they never finished the series.

There is a fan made end to endless eight: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ANOHwDhVJnY

One thing I don't see people mentioning ever about AT3 that I thought was really impressive was the battle music real-time variation.
The battle music always mixed up the base song (reyvateil) and Hyuma (the song modifiers you can equip) along with the tempo change as you purge.

Like, am I the only one who noticed the Hyuma affecting the music?

EDIT: seems not, read this: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/976762-ar-tonelico-qoga-knell-of-ar-ciel/59004818

I'm really not feeling Berseria.
I might actually skip it.

I thought the first two Ar Tonelicos were basically OK...heavy helpings of innuendo not withstanding.  It was the third game that shat all over everything I liked about the series and turned it into a stripping simulator...

Oh... here's an unpopular opinion: I was not disappointed by Ar Tonelico 3
The main reason for that though is that the game was destroyed by every review/critic/gamer and I played it much later going in with really really really low expectations.

To be fair, there's very little practical use that can be thought of with this discovery (yet).
Given human nature, maybe we'll make a bomb or something in the future ;)

Terranigma is probably the worst case I've had of this.

So... I went on the other main branch of Shiny Days and... I am actually impressed by the story.
I'm around the climax and truthfully interested to see how it plays out (and I assume there will be sex shoehorned in somehow/somewhere because none up to now).

The length of the path is about as long as an entire season of an anime and the story I'd say is better than the average anime too.
I guess it's easier to have a good story on this path since it's fairly linear as opposed to the other main path which is a giant octopus.

One interesting thing about Shiny Days is that Makoto (the MC) is not the center point of the story.
Actually, you see very little of yourself. The story is about everyone around you and you get to shape it with the little actions you do here and there.
Makoto is like 5% top of the game while Setsuna (main girl) is like 35%. The rest is all other characters.

I'll update later with how the denouement plays out (I think there's still a couple of hours till I reach the finale)

 
EDIT: well, there was still over 2 hours. Very good ending too.
Like, you could make a movie out of the top path and you'd have something decent.

And the award for most ridiculous Starship name goes to.... SO5's Charles D. Goal F!

Also apparently the CDGF (they couldn't have sprung for an 'E' in that acronym, could they?) is also going to be a town/the game's Moonbase. Well, its probably one of the better uses of Sci-Fi within this series (as long as they don't immediately blow it up or park it in the obvious "Insert Starship Here" spot in lieu of building a bridge or surmounting a waist high fence).

So these idiots couldn't even spell Charles De Gaulle correctly?

(ships looks awesome though)


EDIT: Charles D Goal sounds like a weird mix between Charles de Gaulle and Ainz Ooal Gown

Damn, doing one path of Shiny Days took 6 hours and it was a path that stopped in Chapter 3. Some have an entire chapter more.
Pleasantly surprised at the game. I'd say it's about as good as School Days which I liked.

I somehow ended up on a path that I wasn't expecting but it was pretty worth it because the ending was funny.
So that's 2/Shitton with my earlier failure.

I'll reload an earlier save and see how I can alter things for a couple more endings on that branch.

So all this talk about School Days, made me decide to try Shiny Days (man, I need to stop switching between games and finish the RPGs I start...)

Well... that was a quick end...


And then nothing happened this summer...

*Game was on a pretty good discount not long ago. Maybe I should have posted so in the money saving thread =/
