Albert was my first character too and I don't remember too many difficulties. On the other hand: shiny strategy guide.

I enjoyed the game a lot, but I used a strategy guide. Maybe that made all the difference? Having a general outline of events and quests is very useful.

Blagh, the worst part of being in a (kind of) doujinshicircle is all the drama that comes with it. The longer a circle exists, the greater the chance one of its members will get a teensy weensy paranoid and drama happens. I don't like drama. I don't want to be involved. Why do teenage animefans have to be so hotheaded and just rush into stuff without considering the consequences? Why can't we all just gather around and discuss things over a nice cup of tea? Circles are supposed to be fun...

To be fair, Microsoft leaves the regionlocking up to the publishers. I think it's a reasonable solution. Finding out which games are region free and which aren't can be a bit tricky though.

-about region locks-

It's the other way around with handheld games (up until the 3DS anyway). American Game Boy Advance and DS  games were often much cheaper than their European counterparts ($30 -> €22,50 and it's been like that for years now, yet most GBA and DS games cost €40). They were released much earlier too more often than that. Many Eruopean gameshops made it a habit to import and sell American DS games. When it happened with big titles such as the Pokémon games, NoE didn't mind dragging people to court.

While I appreciate their new attempts to improve the situation by releasing games earlier (and giving us Xenoblade and those other two games), regionlocking is old-fashioned in this global economy. The licensing costs are no excuse. It works the same with books, yet I doubt anyone would want to put a regionlock on manga.

Tomara, were all cartoons from Nederland as arty as those ones? :P Awesome songs though.

Nah, just the ones from Japan and some of the homegrown stuff. We also had a lot of American cartoons. My Little Pony, Transformers, Disney series, superhero cartoons...

You guys make me want to watch old cartoon intro's on Youtube. Like this one. And I think I could listen to this and this all day.

I think I was pretty innocent and normal back then, aside for my love for horror stories and wearing boys clothes, I guess.

Bike is still broken... Maybe I should buy a new one instead of invest in more repairs? I saw one that'd make a good replacement goldfish with some adjustments. On the other hand, putting coaster brakes on it could be expensive...

Edit: I fixed it! Now I can go grocery shopping again!

I bought the teaspoons I needed and I am DETERMINED not to lose these. >_<

Good luck with that. They'll all disappear to the magical teaspoon dimension again before you know it.

I never learned how to ride (a bike) :(

In the Netherlands you'd be considered disabled for that :P

Dad's coming by tomorrow to take a look at the gearbox. I hope he can fix it... There's another bike I can use, but I like this one! We've been together for over ten years now! We went through a lot together, you know? Like that time we got hit by a car. I was fine despite the little flying lesson, but my poor bike was hit hard. I had to drag it around until I found a place to put it until my dad could pick it up. It was repaired, but it's never been quite the same. Now that I think about it, that's probably the reason why it took a critical hit from grass...

Gathered walnuts and hazelnuts together with my sister, mum, my cousin and her two kids. Well, one of them anyway. The youngest one can't walk yet. The oldest one (3) wasn't much help either. In the end he threw the basket over because he doesn't like walnuts. We were all like 'that's not very nice!' and he ran away and started crying in a corner. Poor kid was obviously very tired.

Then my bicycle had a little accident. It fell over onto the soft, soft grass. Now the gears are all wonky. I managed to cycle most of the way home while it shifted gears at random, but in the end there was no resistance at all and I had to walk the last kilometer. I tried fixing it, but I didn't have the tools needed. I hope my dad can help, because I really don't feel like paying for repairs again...

On the other hand, it's a three kilometer walk to my parents, the bicycleshop is just around the corner...

Whatever. Maybe someone from Gust walked down a street in Utrecht or Amsterdam, saw a workshop/store with the name Atelier Lieselot or Atelier Annie or whatever and thought 'hey, that sounds interesting and foreign, maybe it'd make a good title for a game!'
1737  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Weekly podcast: "Your RPG Playin' Ass" on: October 01, 2011, 04:15:41 PM
Rorona defines the workshop. It's not Rorona's workshop without Rorona. So, Atelier Rorona.

...

I guess it doesn't sound as natural in English as in a bunch of other languages... In Dutch you can replace 'atelier' with another kind of business and it still sounds fine. Fietsenhandel Fluit -> bicycleshop Fluit. Buurtsuper Van Der Mondt -> grocery store Van Der Mondt. Fluit and Van Der Mondt being names, of course. Is doesn't work that way in English, does it?

Oh, yeah, it's a tax. 20% is the rate for most luxery goods and services.

Went to the Netherlands' first manga library today. Drank tea, ate mochi, talked about comics and played New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Also found a lot of the books I donated on the shelves. It feels good to know I contributed to their collection and that those books will be read by many more than just me.

What's creepy about that story is that for the dog to pass quietly, it must be moving verrry slowly and carefully to not ring the bell.

It's a ghost dog that moves like a shadow, so I imagine it will just kind of glides past.

For some reason this little town seems to have a lot of tales involving dogs. There's another one about a black guard dog that would never move from its spot. It disappeared for a short while after a priester went to investigate, but they couldn't get rid of it. In the end they broke down the house and rebuilt it elsewhere.

Is this word really that special? It's used a lot in Dutch. Saw one today actually, also an Atelier [insert name here]. I joked that it the world be much more interesting place if these ateliers where selling alchemy products instead of paintings and clothes.

As for the word being derived from the Latin word for 'wood' or 'board', ever noticed that ateliers usually have a sign to let the world know they're ateliers and what they specialize in? So, I mean... yeah.
