Atelier Iris 3

Postby Matt » 06 Aug 2012, 11:18

Graham and Paul are going back to the PS2 for the month of August. There's a lot of games they missed.

Wait... A book "that CAN only exist in legend"? So, it's physically impossible for it to manifest in the real world? That doesn't sound so useful.

I loved Paul's line that "Something terrible started to happen about three minutes ago." Opening cutscenes should drop more feed lines like that. Although the funniest part was the loading screen - guy with no name says nothing - loading screen, with or without commentary.

Are there any art assets in the game that hadn't been used by the end of this cutscene?

Well, it does contain a record of all the world's events (and... um... grants wishes as a side job? I guess?). I suppose it would be theoretically impossible to exist. I mean, it'd have to have a record of itself being made, which, in turn, would need a record of someone transcribing that record...

I think it's "Project A8" as in "All the parts of this project that make sense can be written on a piece of A8 paper"...

Nice to see The Edge finding some work in the downtime from U2. And for the designers to give a subtle nod to his band with Project A8, which of course was the title of their short lived experimental spin-off.

I believe it's project A8 because it's the 8th iteration of the Atelier series. Could be wrong.

Not really. The game is actually pretty fun, though if leaning on the easy side. It's a game about alchemy too. Expect a fuckton of item creation.
