Yeah, he really has no one to blame but himself.
We all told Klyde to skip Rorona but he just wouldn't listen...
Heck, even Gust is skipping it with their Vita re-releases. They did Totori, are working on Meruru, but haven't said a peep about re-releasing Rorona.
What can I say guys... when your right, your right...... however that advice wasn't requested by me or given by you until I had already sunk 15 hours into the game.... my compulsive/completionist nature got the better of me.... can't you forgive a guy for being a bit disordered???? LoL
I liked Rorona, but I also liked the older titles, which were even stricter; somehow I've a feeling they wouldn't be too popular around here.
Ayesha's story is, on the surface, somewhat similar to Totori's. Ayesha lives alone after her guardian died and her sister "disappeared" while out. One day, while she's collecting ingredients, she thinks she sees her sister, thus, provoking her to go search for clues to her fate.
On a related note, if anyone's interested:
I adored the more "standard adventure" atelier series on the ps2.... I still need to finish that as well, but atelier iris (in spite a very lacking narrative) was a very enjoyable title in most respects by my standards.... In fact I am quite certain I will go back to, and polish off all the ps2 titles (including the mana khemias) before returning to arland.....
I can understand that. Rorona was my first atelier game and even though I liked it, you can tell there arw some rough edges. However the improvements from Rorona to Totori are huge.
Since you are still burned out of Rorona, I'd say drop it and whenever you find Totori or Meruru for a good price give them a chance.
As a whole, I think Meruru is the better game but as a character and motivations I go with Totori. her relationship with Mimi is too good to miss!
As for Ayeasha, anybody knows what the main plot is about? I heard a little about a missing sister but I'm not even sure anymore. What I really paid attention to was the new artwork which is lovely.
No trouble finding the titles... I am a limited edition addict (referencing my disordered nature once again), perpetually scared by missing out on some Nisa exclusives in the past.... as a result I managed to collect the limited edition of every NA release of an atelier title since Iris on the ps2....I have been tempted to crack open meruru for my barrel t-shirt but that is part of the fun when I decide to start the game-LoL
As for Ayesha's story and plot, from what I understand, reuniting with the missing sister is the long and the short of it.... Beyond that all I have read is that Ayesha herself is an herbalist who's grandfather died.... literally guys.... that is all the story details given on the wiki....
