I heard that they were going with an SRPG Type system for battles in this game. Is that true?
If so, I'm probably not going to check this one out. I'm a huge fan of the Atelier series, and love the PS2 games (Including Mana Khemia and Ar Tonelico). I'd be incredibly disappointed if they decided to go in such a different direction with this game. I know SRPGs seem to be popular lately, but I honestly prefer the "Tried and True" traditional style RPGS or even Action RPGs.
Christ, yet another game on my rather large pile marked 'to do'. I'm waiting on tomorrow's rather great release set of Lego Rock Band, Band Hero, Star Wars Battlefront Elite Squadron and COP The Recruit. I was under the impression this was impossible to dump so I forgot about it. By the 11th I am gonna have the most epic backlog of games. I'll have all of tomorrow's releases, the new COD, new Harvest Moon, I'm sure there are others, not to mention this. And I'm already working on Nostalgia, plus my own game projects (my games design course is kicking up into high gear, I'm working on my RPG at the moment). And once I check with Psyco I'll be able to start my beta testing duties on ASH as well (I'm having trouble with the patcher). Damn, I am gonna be swamped for the next few months. God bless the DS.
Here's hoping this is as strangely addictive as the one I played on PS2 which I cannot remember the name of. Starts off with you finding a big talking sword in the woods if I recall correctly. That was pretty good.
