Welp, my review for this is on the front page.

I just recently finished chapter 1 of The Perils of Man, an iOS point-and-click adventure.  The first chapter is available for free from the app store right now and the full game is slated to drop Q2. 

Anyway, I enjoyed this.  It doesn't reinvent the wheel as far the genre is concerned, but it is a stylish adventure that hearkens back to the ol' LucasArts days (probably because some ex-LucasArts staff had a hand in this.)  The puzzles were challenging without being arbitrary or obtuse and I dug the story and characters so far.  I want to experience more.  The only downsides, really, are that some of the voice acting is hammy and subtitles during dialogue scenes sometimes disappeared too quickly.  In addition, this "demo" is pretty short.  I was left wanting more and I want to play the rest of the game to see how the story plays out. 

If you have an iPad and like the genre, I recommend checking this out.

Katsuya was Tatsuya's older brother.  In Innocent Sin he looked kinda haggard, but in Eternal Punishment he looked pretty good. 

I said everything I need to on pages 3 and 4 here:  http://www.rpgfan.com/boards/index.php?topic=10909.0

Cowabunga, dude! I was skeptical at first, but I'll eat a pizza slice on behalf of this new reboot that cashes in on my childhood nostalgia.

I just think the comments going "OMG grimdark gonna be bad" are funny, because the original Eastman and Laird Ninja Turtle comics were pretty dark and gritty.  A far cry from the campy cartoon.  That's partially why I liked the original 1990 Turtles movie.  Especially lines like Donatello calling Casey Jones claustrophobic and Casey saying, "Hey, I've never even looked at another guy."  Or something.

I like the old logo better too.  The new one just looks like a generic stock font.

Okay, so it's a cousin series in the Gust family tree.

Oh, don't get me wrong.  Otherworld has to have the growls for ballsiness.  The Black Mages version with the clean female vocals is decent, but it lacks balls.  I just prefer my harsh vocals richer and less auto-tuned.  I'm not asking for Mikael Akerfeld from Opeth, but I at least want a Dez Farfara (DevilDriver) snarl.  Like I said before, Burton C. Bell's voice would have been awesome for that song.  I'm picky about my metal growls.  What can I say?

Someone once described "Otherworld" as a metal song produced by a punk.  That song needed cleaner production and a better vocalist.  Imagine if Burton C. Bell of Fear Factory had done it.  The growls would be more ballsy and the cleans would be more resonant.

I haven't played a lot of Atelier games, but I have a mixed relationship with the series.  I loved Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana.  Veola, the magic shop clerk, has one of my favorite JRPG character stories.  Killer soundtrack too.  I still play the Deceitful Wings guitar arranged album during my commute.  

The only others I've played are Atelier Annie (which I reviewed positively for the site), Mana Khemia (which I simply could not get into), and the first Ar Tonelico (excellent music, but I couldn't get into that game either.)

It is a series I'd like to return to someday.  Though, like my homegirl Dice, I prefer something more in line with Iris than Annie.  

And as an aside, Marie is one of the best looking JRPG heroines http://www.game-ost.com/static/covers_soundtracks/1/5/15537_840252.jpg

Just got to the Ice Temple in FFX. About to fight Seymour for the first time. I remember this battle being difficult, but I could be wrong.

The only Seymour battle I hated was the one on Mount Gagazet.

"Death Awaits You!"

I love when people tell me a battle is tough, so I over-level.  Then I got through it fine.  That was the situation when I did this fight.
The chocobo eater too.  I got Fira and the battle was over in seconds.  It was divine.

For me, the battle I hated most was when Kimahri
Code:
fights his two big brothers by himself.
 I did not feel like levelling up the "useless kitten" (as General Mortars liked to call him back in the day) so I figured I'd GameShark the fight.  Worst decision ever.  This is the only instance where Gamesharking made something more trying.  That battle became the longest and most tedious boss battle I'd ever experienced in an RPG.  I knew I'd win, but it took for-freaking-ever.  

Wait? You weren't using everybody at least once per fight in EVERY fight you get into?

For historical significance, I would mention the Ultima series (particularly Ultima IV Quest of the Avatar with its use of ethically harbored story narrative), perhaps Phantasy Star (which heralded the modern age of JRPGs with more robust narrative storylines, preset characters with backstories and stuff, and for being one of the first RPGs to feature a strong female protagonist), and definitely Final Fantasy VII for opening the floodgates for JRPGs going from a niche "dorknerdgeek" genre in the western hemisphere to a mainstream genre.
