Sorry to revive this thread but I am doing so with purpose...

After Rorona left a bad taste in my mouth I found it difficult to return to Arland. As such Totori and Meruru (while I understand to be much better) still sit unopened on my shelf.

However, I HATE when a series I appreciate or am interested in gets annual releases and I am left in the dust.. Unable to ride the wave of enthusiasm over siliconera posts and updates because I have fallen behind on the franchise. Thus I decided to, somewhat reluctantly, begin Ayesha this past weekend.

On to the purpose...

For anyone who may have (like myself) appreciated the art style and charm of the atelier series but was on the fence about returning to the franchise until the franchise returned to something a wee bit more "iris" in nature... for me personally... I am shocked at how impressed I am with this game so far.

Explaining what I've found and appreciated about the title would only echo the RPGfan review and well circulated info about the title. All I am truly posting to say is if you have been looking at the new Atelier titles' previews and going "gee, but I never even got to ayesha.... guess I'll pass.." it may be worth rethinking or taking another look.

If nothing else, given its length, it should fit in nicely now right before I become tales-obsessed in August! LoL

I normally avoid even looking into or at game trailers and previews of things I know I'm going to play... I like it to be a surprise. But I could not contain my curious nature as I watched this thread flourish since E3 and gave in.

First I would just like to say that this game looks freakin' stellar to me thus far. Seriously excited, I am... Excited in the way I was when I first saw a chrono trigger add and thought it was a secret of mana sequel!!LoL

But while we are talking outfits and aesthetics and sexuality...

This guy has the most gorgeous features I've ever seen in a male character profile/status pic. Seriously, I might be a heterosexual man but I call like I see it and this guy is "Gavin Rossdale" beautiful in my book. End of discussion.

Thank goodness the "name that weapon" contest has ended....

I don't care about winning much of anything, though for some strange reason I became OBSESSED with that weapon contest for the last week. Every moment online I spent crafting names for submission.... I got to the point where I started submitting entries under different names and e-mail addresses in case they started to think I was looney for submitting (literally) hundreds of names.

So if anyone here subscribes to the prinny bomb newsletter look for the name "Klyde Chroma" in the winners my friends because it WILL BE SO!!! Mwahahahahaa.... also look for the name "Zach Dende" and "Trynn Ark" just in case.....

NOTE: I don't actually think I am gonna win but I feel the false bravado (coupled with the unreasonable volume of my efforts) somehow increases my chances.

Wild Arms Alter Code F.... IS FINISHED!!

That is one loose end from my childhood taken care of!

This also brings me to my final backlog, Agarest War 2. Upon completion of Agarest I will know what it feels to game without the distraction of a backlog. Of course this all depends on if I can pick up mid 2nd generation and figure out what the hell I was doing within that mess of a skill-system. I remember the plot well enough from where I put it down but I recall being relatively "lost" as far as really having a stategic direction as to how I was developing my team. Geeeeee golly I wish I played this one on easy-LoL

Well I hit a crossroads in Wild Arms Alter Code F...

Do I delve into the ridiculous amount of optional content at the end of the game or B-line it to the finish?... Given how lackluster the writing and characters proved to be for me I decided to just move forward on polishing this one off. This however may have proven an ill-decision, as I just made it up to the top of ka dingle and am CLEARLY under-leveled. I enjoy the challenge but am afraid of not being able to complete the game. And here I thought Rudy's gatling raid alone was gonna be enough to snap the game in half... foolish kylde was...foolish

Wild Arms Alter Code F- De La Metalica (or whatever the god forsaken place was called....) included, what is my estimate to be, the single most unfair puzzle in the history of my JRPG career.... anyone who played has to know what I'm talking about.... the end...

Utterly bad-ass!

Thank you again for all the help guys. I got the job. I start ink-suiting my man up this saturday night!!

For anyone wondering what all the fine inspiration you folks provided me yielded....

That is of course just a rough sketch.

Wild Arms ACF: Ok I know the translation is not stellar but I seriously think they completely missed providing any reasonable direction as to how you go about finding the "Evil" guardian. I don't check faqs but I had no choice on that one... Anyone else have that problem or did just completely miss something?

Dust An Elysian Tale: Finally picked this game back up. I don't know how I put it down... so addicting. Just made it to Mudpot. What a beautiful village for such a grotesque name.

What movie should I watch later? Akira or Zodiac? I have never seen either.

I never saw Zodiac and Akira never really "wowed" me... So I vote Zodiac! Then you promptly report back with a review!! -LoL

But seriously, I just read up on it (because I wasn't familiar) and it sounds pretty interesting. That one is totally on my "to check out" list. Thanks Yoda ;)

Guys I must extend a sincere apology here in this thread to anyone who went through the trouble of adding me as a 3ds friend....

Upon realizing that no matter how cool the title I just cannot get into a handheld game I sold my 3ds XL to (partially fund) a PS4 and pay of my tales of Xilia Ce's.

I am extremely sorry for the inconvenience of adding me (if you in fact have). I feel like a failure of a gamer in some sense.... and at the same time I am very relieved. I didn't realize how much I treated playing that thing as a chore.
986  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: June 19, 2013, 04:23:41 PM
Wild Arms Alter Code F- Thank god this game is dripping with puzzles and lots of exploration because the appeal certainly does not lie in the writing.... the plot is alright, but gee golly is the script lackluster. Just got through the forest prison. Things are getting INTENSE!! Heh...

Animal Crossing, Soul Hackers and Everything else for the 3ds.... Well I've finally gone and done it... I threw in the towel... I just CAN NOT get into playing games on a handheld for the life of me. After trying my damndest for the better part of the last year to get through anything on my 3ds I've finally arrived at the realization that, no matter how great the game, playing anything on it just feels like a chore for me. So I sold it. If anyone sees this who added me as a friend I am terribly sorry.

^^I am ashamed to admit this for some reason (oddly).

Put my 3ds profits toward paying off my two Xilia CE's and a playstation 4.

And as for FF6.... you guys are making me jealous... it may soon be time for my dozenth (or so) play-through-LoL

 I am just pluging away on maxing the main stat for each character in FF6. Just got the Paladin Shield. Pretty stoked.

Ah, I'm going through Final Fantasy 6 as well (I'm playing it through the Virtual console though). Just got through the burning house in Thasmas.

From right around there up on through until the WOR is my favorite part of that game... oh the nostalgic goodness. Shadows theme is one of my favorite little diddies in all of gaming history. I use it as a text message alert on my phone.

I just got through the first 12 episodes of Penguindrum. This series is bat-s**t-crazy in an awesome way!!

Never said I wasn't exposed to them, just that I don't particularly like them ;)

Same. I was a Star Wars/Muppets kid.

I was totally on the star wars/muppets side of the coin... now why is it those two go hand in hand? strange...

Any-hoo I apparently suffered some fear of sesame street and disney cartoons as a kid (according to my parents). When I was very young and they would try to show me either, I would cry from what I was told.

That being said, I play on trumping my childhood aversion this year with the HD remake! Or at least giving it an effort finally.

I think after Vesperia, I'll tackle FF XII-2. I've had it since launch, but just haven't found the time to play.
Lately I've been hankering for an RPG, and just sort of want to go on a binge.

I still need to tackle XIII-2 as well (i presume that is what you meant and not revenant wings). Want to get that out of the way before lightning returns at the end of this year.

In other news, animal crossing is totally losing me. The problem is not the game... it is me and my unnervingly narrow taste in games. I think I've really developed a strong affinity for what I like and this just isn't it in spite of its charm.

Now Wild Arms Alter Code F..... Totally hooked on this again! Thank you "lets play" for catching me up, verbatim, on the plot thus far! I'll tell ya what, that site is a godsend for picking up backlogs. After re-reading up to where I am at, I hardly feel like I put the title down for but a week or two.
990  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Animal Crossing New Leaf Tomorrow... Anyone? on: June 14, 2013, 07:00:04 PM
this game is losing me I think... I feel like there is a ton to do but I'm underwhelmed in the pay off for my efforts or something. I want to stick with it a bit more as I have yet to experience any multiplayer action of any sort or even figured out how to visit  someone elses town yet but I already want to retire the title.

And this pisses me off cause I actually believe this is a really cool game... I think I just hunger for the epic and engaging nature of typical rpgs and srpgs... this may just be too relaxed for me.

what the hell is my problem...? (aside from ellipses-LoL)
