wracking my brain to figure out what kind of job would allow someone to play a podcast at sound levels loud enough for others to hear "offensive" language, yet still employ people of the sort that would be offended by noises and syllables.

I am now fairly certain that ultra7k is a high school lunch lady.

maybe a failed lunch lady, but even still the point stands.  have free reign to play it in my office space, just wasn't expecting the language is all.

Just a couple points on the 1-2.

Enjoyed the podcast, as I had been looking forward to it all weekend. Really liking the music being incorporated into the podcast as well, as that adds a nice dimension and helps the listener to recall the scene you guys are talking about.

The first few minutes was an absolute gripe fest. I thought you guys were just going to blast the game all podcast long, which made me think, why am I even listening to this in the first place? It got better further into the pod cast though, so that's fine and you guys did bring up some of the issues with the game.

Also, language? I was listening to this at work, and was taken aback at some of the more... colourful expressions used in the cast. Typically podcasts from this site have been safe for work (language wise), an explicit tag would have been nice when uploading to iTunes.

The editing/production could have used a bit more work, or better environments as there was some pretty serious echo, and I could barely hear one of the other hosts (sorry don't know your voices just yet).

Keep up the good work!

Well, making my way through the second part of the sewers and so far none of the battles have been really overly difficult. Gained a couple levels traversing the sewers, so that should help going forward, though Joshua and Estelle are still a couple levels below Zane and Olivier, I think I should be able to manage.

Oh the intrigue. Still a really fun game, though I will be glad when I've beaten it as it's taken me about 2 years to get to this point. Really hoping SC gets done sooner than later.

Didn't get through the game like I wanted over the weekend, but I did manage to clear the semi finals in chapter 4. The next team looks pretty tough, so I wonder if I may have to grind out a few levels (which I haven't done to this point in the game).

The end is near, I can feel it.

So bit of a thread necro, but I thought it was relevant.

Finally managed to find a Korean translation copy for my Vita! Opened it up, and lo and behold, a manual!! in colour no less! It's like a blast from the past.


Anyways, making my way through the game, and it seems like the top part of the screen is ever so slightly cut off, which is a slight annoyance, but what can you do.

Was a bit bummed that it uses the Japanese trophies and doesn't have it's own Korean trophies, but whatever. Game play is fun, and this is really my first crack at playing an import game on a console. Story is ok, but since I'm still just easing into it, there's tons more to be discovered/uncovered.

Good times.

So was the plan to have a midgame progress update during the middle of the month?

I ask because a friend of mine thinks that doing a midmonth progress episode would get thoughts of the game thus far (since endings have a tendency to swing one way or another) and bring the non-participants on to the same page as the rest of the crew.

Yes! We did record a mid-month episode, it's just taking a little bit to wrap up. ;) I also have images to post with that recording when it does go live, because what is this game even? ;)

In seriousness, I'm actually starting to enjoy this game more than I did when I first started because it really did feel like it dragged in the Prologue/Chapter 1. However, my opinion on some of the game has changed and you'll hear soon enough my love for a certain sidequest in Ruan that was just awesomesauce. :)

For now, I leave this image:



That looks way better than my Vita. Is that for PC?

Now into chapter 4, and it's moving along quite nicely. Hope to wrap this game up by the end of the week.

Having now beat Ar Nosurge, I will take a crack at this game again. It's been two years to the day since I bought and started, and made it to chapter 3.
Currently on the cusp of what I think is beating the 3rd chapter, so I should be well into the Chapter 4 by mid next week. Currently sitting at around 32 hours played. thought I did end up completing nearly all of the side quests on the way to where I am, I think I will probably forego most of them going forward.

Been playing RPGs since...well as long as I can remember, so here they are in no particular order.

1. Suikoden II
2. Final Fantasy VII
3. Persona 4 Golden
4. Ultima VII
5. Baldur's Gate II
6. Chrono Trigger
7. YS II Special (Korean only release)
8. Final Fantasy Tactics
9. Tactics Ogre
10. Uncharted Waters of the Sea I/II (a bit more simulation than RPG, but still has RPG elements so I'm counting it, and yes that's 2 games.)
10  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Completion List 2015 on: May 14, 2015, 10:31:43 PM
1.) Brandish - The Dark Revenant
2.) The Legend of Zelda -  A Link Between Worlds
3.) Danganronpa - Trigger Happy Havoc
4.) Muramasa Rebirth
5.) Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments
6.) Ar Nosurge

Just platinum'd Ar Nosurge. Went into this game knowing very little after snagging it from the Golden Week sale. It was going a toss up between this and Fairy Fencer F, but in the end I wanted something a little more sci-fi. Now, I should be able to finally wrap up Trail in the Sky for the play along on the podcast.

Welp, as soon as I finish Ar Nosurge, I'm going to dive head long into Trails. At this point I need to, because I was finally able to secure a copy of Sen No Kiseki in Korean for the Vita making it my first ever import title (about as niche as niche gets!). While I can't wait for that to get here, it will provide me with some incentive to beat Trails which will also be nice as it will be in line with the podcast.

You know what's got a great soundtrack?

Ar Nosurge.

Just sitting here listening to em-pyei-n vary-fen jang;

So good. Did not know the song was in Russian.

One little detail that I thought stood out was the fact that pretty much all the chests have different lines to read after you've opened them.

Assuming time allows for it, I'll probably also join in in playing along with the podcast. Depending on how far you get by the 2nd episode, I'll take note since it's been some time since I let the game lie fallow. Really looking forward to playing it though.

Totally, and if you need to use a game guide or whatever to help speed the process, there's no shame in that either. I occasionally check on gamefaqs in regards to Bracer points, not so much story/battles/etc.. ;)

If I recommend anything, however, is take the time to talk to everyone and see how wacky things really are in this game. ;)

I started playing the game in May of 2013, and I couldn't remember where I left off, so I checked and I am 31 hours in near the end of Chapter 3, I think, so i think I've got a decent buffer at least until the next episode. Haha right now I need to focus on Ar Nosurge!
