Ar tonelico II English Trailer is LIVE

Talk about a nice thing to wake up to in the morning! Caught it through a topic on GameFAQs that I almost read before watching the trailer for myself. Now, about the voices in general…I LIKE THEM. They’re GOOD. Not horrible in the least. I’m judging them on the short lines given in the trailer, but still. GOOD. Detailed comments in spoilers:

Early Opinions on Atelier Iris 3

-This quest system is going to get annoying fast.
-Nell is going to get annoying faster. Edge is a stick in the mud, and Yula is PMSing.
-Loving the battle system for some reason, maybe because I can avoid enemies when I want to, auto-win battles by slashing low-level enemies, and the Burst system is really cool.
-I understand why Iris has to get “ideas” to learn new recipes, but it means even more dungeon backtracking…
-Yay Pamela!

Hoping to beat this before January so I can have all three AI games beaten this year :3

Ar tonelico speedrun!

First save- 0:04
After learning how to Grathmeld- 0:12 0:11
Tenba Labs- 0:24
Terraced Fields- 0:42 0:41
Taking Aurica’s path to avoid an evil boss in Misha’s.

Am I insane? Probably, but I’ve been thinking about this for a while now.
Problems/list of stuff:
-Lag. Ohhhh the lag.
-When to Dive, who to Dive into, how far to go? (Probably Aurica, though Misha has a mandatory Lv1)
-What items to get/make? Definitely Peeka (RC Pig), but what about attack or healing items?
-If/when to levelgrind?
-How possible IS a low level game, because a speedrun is that, just with the added “bonus” of having to rush through everywhere. Usually with LLGs you still get all the items, so you’re equipped fine, but low level…
-Lots of other things that I can’t remember right now.

Wish me luck?

Ar tonelico II is going to kill me

I don’t think I’ve anticipated a game this much since Golden Sun: The Lost Age. That was even the last one where I played the Japanese version before the English release and got rather far. I’m not even looking that forward to playing it, I’ve done that already, I just want to have it on my shelf and hear the voices.

And I pretty much kept forgetting about Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World and Chrono Trigger DS. Both games snuck up on me, and I didn’t preorder either since I don’t expect any shortages.

I’ve got to stop thinking about AT2 so much. I’ve got a massive backlog of other games to keep my attention, and Persona 4 is due in a month (I’m getting it for Christmas, so it’s more like 1.5 months for me). And there’s other things, like school projects and Thanksgiving break, and…and…I’ll be insane by January. Or have a few ulcers. Or just keel over.
