No argument there, her cuteness gets me going every time.
She's pretty when drawn by Hidari but her in-game model is too cutesy and she looks dumb
Ayesha is the cutest and also is my wife.
Nobody will EVER marry you user, especially not a goddess like Ayesha.
She looks like a high class prostitute.
Are any of the atelier games released on steam worth a damn?
Maybe the newest one, the two before that are shit.
Since it's still a trilogy you should play them if you want to play the last one aswell.
What country do you live in? I would pay good money for someone like ayesha.
I don't like blondes.
Are any girls in this series straight or do they all bump clams?
Im playing Ayesha atm, and i think it s ok game, lots of scenes, fully voiced, characters are ok too
Though aspect of alchemy was nerfed in those games since ps2
Almost all are. Some are thirsty as fuck aswell.
Fuck this gay earth I just want some good Atelier
Nah, Sophie was fine, even if a bit aimless.
That is your opinion and I completely disagree with it.
I hear there's no actual yuri in this series, which is why I haven't played it.
That's cool, I can respect that. I do see why some don't like it.
Escha is confirmed straight.
The others, aside from Rorona, are questionable.
I like the idea of alchemy playing a huge part in a game but moe kills this series for me.
Are any of the atelier games lighter on the moe and heavier on the gameplay side of things?
I've already played kamidori alchemy meister.
Atelier iris, it's a ps2 game though.
Her sister is goddess-tier waifu
Not really. Iris/Mana Khemia might be a little less moe, but they also have way less focus on the alchemy, so that's no good. Seems like Gust were trying to make more generic JRPGs with them.
I'll check 'em out anyway, thanks.
I honestly can't get enough of the opening song for this game.
Anyone else find the voice acting for L&S be rather underwhelming? Suelle in particular is kinda all over the place.
Why does her boobs have eyebrows?
I think the other opening song is better
I miss the days when Gust could get nice VAs like Ai Nonaka or Mai Kadowaki for their games instead of whos. Ar tonelico 2 had Miyuki Sawashiro and Ami Koshimizu as leads. Wish we could have that again.
It's not just performance but the voice quality seems to be off. Suelle in battle for example has uneven voice pitch and sometimes her lines would end abruptly. It's like they were being rushed or something.
Nevermind that the Opening song has no harmony at all.
Speaking of Ar tonelico, is it any good?
Atelier iris first good as fuck
Manachemia 1 too
Ar tonelico 1-2 but these ones are DEEP
It's the best thing Gust made. And the worst too, in case of the third game.
2 is good.
Fuck yes. The OST easily blows a lot of JRPGs.
Akiko Shikata is a goddess
Best games evar
I d like ar tonelico 1-2 ports to swutch at least
Did they edit or remove this scene for Europe?
I know many of you don't like her game, but I really like her design.
Can I play 2 without playing 1?
mfw Replekia plays for the first time in AT2
Depends what you're looking for. The gameplay is never very good, to be honest. The good part is the setting and the characters. The first game is pretty good but plays things kinda safe, while the second game doesn't (I really want to talk more about this but it'd be spoilers so I can't) so it ends up a lot better. Third game isn't as good as the second but it's still good.
The best part of the game is just the cosmospheres which are entirely character interaction though, so if you don't want that then you won't like the games. Like, the game just turns into a VN and people talk for twenty minutes. That's the good part. If you don't want that you won't like Ar tonelico.
Also the music is fucking amazing. I want to post the entire OST but I can't so I'll just post these four tracks and leave it at that. Shit's so good.
No, play 1. The combat is really basic, but everything else is just as good as 2. But you're not playing these games for the combat anyway.
Everything in L&S feels bit worse. I'm not fond of Suelle voice either, but she isn't as bad as Lucia. Her squeaking hurts my ears.
1 is good too
And lore wise i wouldnt reccomend to play 2 without 1, there are so much in those games, lots of story, geography, biology, conceptions, reyvateils origins, d-cellophane, tower, goddess administrtors, languages
2 is certainly best game ever, but first one good too
the feeling when nuGust will never reach level of kino because of Koei Tecmo
I ll tell you, i dont really like those hymnos because they are mostly ewwwww
But overall soundtrack of 1-2 at games are really good, especially themes with voices, whispers, "i shall give you endless earth", map themes of second game variarions, bath theme, dive songs, lots of them
Like 99% of ost are godlike
But hymnos songs i dont like
2 builds off 1 a lot so you should really play 1 first.
That's not true. The second tower is way more interesting than the first, and the girls are way better in 2. Even if you hate them (and you shouldn't, don't make me break out the Luca pasta), they're still much better characters.
Luca and you-know-who pettanko are the reasons I first wanted to play Ar Tonelico
But definitely not enough to skip AT1 or else it loosens the impact about finding out who Jaqri is, aka the best AT2 character.
Are the VN parts fully voiced?
Most of them. But if you're going to play it, get the undub version by /jp/, because the vanilla PS2 version of AT2 fucked with missing audio and the infamous Raki glitch that breaks your game.
I'm pretty Gust just doesn't give a damn anymore. Once KT bought them, its been mostly darkness with very few bright spots.
Ar tonelico is like good Rune Factory games,but with actual lore, story, better girls, good alchemy system, good combat system, soundtrack
Yea, i liked cloche and mir more than at1 girls
Sorry bro, it seems you got your pictures mixed up. Let me help you with that.
Anyone else disappointed that there are only few playable characters in new ateliers? Plactha, Ilmeria, Liana, Lucia, Cory, Drossel are just npcs now.
Ilmeria is gonna be a DLC partner, and so is the red haired childhood friend.
But yeah I see what you mean. The only new adds is the knight guy and white haired lady boy.
Of course I'm getting an undub, where do you think we are?
You got yourself a convert, fags, but there better be yuri.
Well raki glitch just doesnt allow you to fight one optional boss more than one-two times
If you want yuri, be sure to waifu Jaqli in Ar Tonelico 2 because this means that Luca and Cloche become gay life partners in the end.
You romance the girls as the male protagonist so if you want yuri you better bring in some thick goggles.
I will be long done with this game before they add Ilmeria and Lucia as dlc. Who ever wanted 2 generic guys as new additions. I rather have Oskar and even Hagel than this.
Well, Croix does look like a girl. Maybe he can pretend Croix is a girl.
Raki glitch doesn't happen unless you're playing on an actual PS2. And, I mean, that's possible, but at this point I think it's safe to assume most people will just emulate.
Ar tonelico 2 is actually special in that it has dual audio by default, but you still need a fucking undub. NISA cut out like 80% of the dialogue in the original release for no reason.
because this means that Luca and Cloche become gay life partners in the end.
Not really but ok. I guess maybe if you pretend the only way two people can become close is if they want to fuck each other.
Gee user, way to make the rest of the Atelier series look bad now that I'm aware of this.
Who is this cute little boy?
It really sucks that they wasted Annie on that shit DS game instead of a full fledged console one.
Atelier Annie on the Nintendo DS. Say something nice about her.
Well, think about it this way.
In AT2, you have 3 main love interests. Luca, Cloche and Jaqli. The former two are kind tsundere for each other because of circumstances meanwhile Jaqli doesnt care much for either of them. If you romance Jaqli, Luca and Cloche drop their hopes of ever getting your dick and so become gay for each other out of frustration.
Her design is about as DS JRPG as it gets, the character designs probably wouldn't have gotten onto a mainline game.
I honestly kind of regret buying Lydie and Suelle for 60 dollars. All I ever think while playing it is how much I miss the older Ateliers.
Should have waited for a summer sale instead.
These are two different things dude.
It's perfectly normal to love your nee-chan, user.
Annie is a thirsty slut.
From the ones I played Firis, green Shallie, Escha, Rorona, Lydie are the cutest.
Havent played Ayesha yet but she looks more serious.
I hope that guy who hasn't played the series doesn't read this. If you spoil things for him it'll be very sad.
Annie is neither. She's a gold digger. She'd probably refuse to have sex even if she was married unless she got something out of it.
i m getting fat
looks like you re not.
im getting fat in places you shouldn t see
Yea asha more serious.
The lack of yuri is certainly disappointing. I guess you can't have them all. It's just that some of you guys called it the best jrpg ever, so I kinda assumed it was yuri.
Those black bars have a strange, magnetic effect on me I can rarely resist. It's okay though, I guess I'm not playing it after all.
Rorona is the cutest atelier
3 is still good, you twat.
Fuck you and your trash taste. The Hymmnos songs are by far the most important and best part of the soundtrack.
Get the retranslation. The undub was rendered obsolete because it doesn't even restore all the voices.
Luca and Cloche aren't gay, you idiot.
While not romanceable or playable, AT2 does have a pretty obvious yuri pairing as part of the main characters. You won't realize it until the end of the game though.
Only going by the assumption that any two females bonding must be sexually interested in each other.
Actually a yuri pairing is one of the focal points of the plot, which even led to the events of AT2. But obviously, talking more about it is a spoiler.
Best themes was like this
Hymnos well, they not musical enough
Ayesha fucks old men for alchemy lessons.
So I always hear about Mana Khemia, what are those like? Why are they recommended over the main titles?
a series of games about songs using a fictional, functional language created by the devs that would make even Tolkien himself proud
he doesnt like the songs which the games are about
They're a lot less unique than most other Ateliers. No need to plan anyway, and really simplified alchemy. The combat system is nice but it doesn't matter since 99% of the combat is just against trash mobs that you can beat by just hammering attack, like in most JRPGs. Not really sure what people see in MK.
Kickass music and combat. Basically, they're for people who wanted more out of the combat than the alchemy aspect.
EschatoLogy copied this combat system, so if you like it, you should try that one one.
That said, I kinda prefer Mana Khemia's because in E&L, it felt a lot slower, which the whole appeal of Mana Khemia's was that the pace was super fast.
Doesn't Firis's sister go full yuri when she finds out they aren't blood related?
I like it primarily because the hits feel very weighty and impactful. New ateliers didnt bother improving the sound design and instead focused on making more flashy effects. While nice, it doesnt make combat satisfying at all.
Combats are really fast action, though being usual turn based, pretty cool
Leveling on alchemy, lots of alchemy recipes, and you gain stats and skills crafting new items and getting new bonuses on big grid like ffx
Endings with every character so you can, like, some romancing. And pretty cool characters overall
Overall it s ff8-classzero-harrypotter magic school and you re renkinjutsushi, and there are everything cool. It s good game.
Second not so good i think
What? A piece that only contains a bunch of whispered gibberish aside of the folk main melody?
And besides, several of the BGMs contain Hymmnos whispers, not to mention the Hymmnos songs themselves have a level of musicality that puts most games' music to shame. You're seriously an imbecile.
The two I'm talking about are confirmed to be a canon pairing, so that can't be more yuri even if they tried.
