The Atelier series is awesome as I loved Ayesha. If you love an amazing crafting system, beautiful music and design, and an exciting and customizable battle system, GET THIS GAME.

The Atelier series has always been a sour taste. The calendar restricts your natural desire to explore new areas, and if you don't find a certain ingredient you need after exploring x number of areas in result you fail the mission you have, and you get a game over and have to start over

I will probably get this, but it's not high on my wishlist.

I'm still waiting for the 50 or so AAA first party studio produced Sony games Sheen's guarantee'd the ps3 would have because Sony always does this to support a older gensystem after the new system is released......

Other than that this is what happened with the ps2 smaller studios produced mainly jrpgs because they couldn't afford to develop for the newer system and the ps2 had the user numbers., sadly the lower end spectrum jrpgs are kind of shitty carbon copy puzzle piece fairs that wouldn't have succeeded on the newer system.

Eh, I think I adjusted to that system after playing Purse Owner.

And really Kristian, Helix Fossil XD.

@SonicNextGen2: praise helix.

Will here has been trying for a very long time for it to stick. It's what he calls cows, nothing more.

I've never even heard of it. Plus I still have Bravely Default and Tales of Xillia to play.

I can't actually bring myself to play Totori

#21 Edited by yokofox33 (29347 posts) -

Those Atelier games are mediocre at best. I tried the first one and got bored pretty quickly. I can't imagine these games are that much different from each other.

#22 Edited by Heil68 (43397 posts) -

SONY supporting their consoles for the entire life cycle. It's quite spectacular really when you think they launched a new console on top of it all.

Yeah, but I want to know what it's origin is. Like sony fanboys are called cows for a reason. What the hell is the reason for calling them "Sheens"

#25 Edited by Stevo_the_gamer (42626 posts) -

Metacritic doesn't dictate AAE status. Besides, it's a JRPG so... yuck! :P

I know! Isn't it great? Sony fans love some goofy shit.

#27 Posted by chessmaster1989 (29098 posts) -

Eh from what I played of the Atelier series I really wasn't impressed.

Nobody knows, probably just his own internal quirks where he has a small laugh every time he types "Sheens".

@SonicNextGen2: sure did, I've been hooked to Kuroko's Basketball lately. I can easily relate to Kuroko, since he little and sucks at shooting, but he is a a pro at passing the ball.

yea except its a 3rd party game...

#34 Posted by bbkkristian (14940 posts) -

@SonicNextGen2: I think it's so popular because common anime troupes aren't present and it's very realistic compared to most anime. Not to mention its relatable and has lots of action. What is there not to love? :) I'm very new to anime, so new I can't stand anything outrageous as of right now, so this one is perfect for me to get into the discourse.

boooooooring. next

#36 Posted by Gue1 (9491 posts) -

with only 14 reviews though... And from what I heard this is the worst Atelier game on the PS3.

#37 Posted by Suppaman100 (3760 posts) -

81? That's very high for an atelier game. You love it or you hate it though.

Well I know Nintendo is not used to 3rd party support, but by golly SONY welcomes it!@

#39 Posted by ristactionjakso (5701 posts) -

Hmm I'll keep an eye on it. I like that it says its supposed to be more mature. Nothing grinds my gears more than a cheesy childish jrpg. I also like that you can choose between 2 protagonists, a male and female. Need more info on it.

#40 Edited by blue_hazy_basic (27365 posts) -

Sorry to say you need to update your OP TC, no longer over 80 and its falling rather fast.

EDIT at the rate its going it might not be Ae for much longer tbh ...

Never been a fan of the Atelier series.I hate bs time limits in rpgs

#43 Posted by ristactionjakso (5701 posts) -

Ya the time limit is the deal breaker. I watched youtube videos and read more about it. Everything looked like a sure buy for me, until I read time limits. Why implement phucking time limits in any rpg? or in any game for that matter?

Down to a 70 already. Don't think this is gonna make it, TC.

#47 Posted by jhonMalcovich (4497 posts) -

I would pick any western rpg over this Japanese hentai crap

Actually, the Metascore has just gone up to 82. What's going on?

#49 Posted by SonicNextGen2 (3422 posts) -

How'd you guys get 70 from the average, it says 82 right now?

#50 Edited by Bigboi500 (29286 posts) -

These games come out faster than a mother fucker. I still need to pick up this one and Ayesha.
