Atelier Rorona

We looked it up: "atelier" means "workshop". It didn't help us understand the game any better.

More like Alphonse,
If she actually got trapped inside a suit of armor that would be hilarious!

Alchemy related fatalities had me in giggles.

Also how is the game after this?

I'm guessing your standard JRPG but do you guys know?

Wow, I looked this up, seems there's been at least 15 Atelier games.

I'd never heard of them. Apparently not that many got out of Japan, but I'd still not seen them.

She doesn't seem very competent does she?

I loved the Scooby Doo comments!

Well it is good astrid id giving jobs to the mentally ill.

Also, why do the characters look 20ish in the cut scene and 12 walking around?

Rharham? Rhaul? Rhooby Dooo!

Very funny episode, job well done. You should do Rettecetear an Item Shop's tale as well. That game creeped me out from the intro. It was disturbing on so many levels.

It's anime. :p
Nah, I don't know. There are some games who do something similar, like Disgaea, where the characters are miniaturized and in cutscenes they look normal.

OT: Loved the episode. Got a few laughs out of it. ^^

Rats! Rou reat re ro rit!

I bet there's an infinite void of horrors and madness behind the door. Also known as the JRPG developer's mind.

Goddamn jrpgs. I honestly don't think I could manage to play one of these games without clawing my eyes out ripping my ears off.

Pretty much every game in the series is named like this.

The only games with worse sounding names are Squaresoft's recent latin mathematics kick, the Y's: The Ark of Nephistim, and Ar tonelico Qoga: Knell of Ar Ciel

Atelier can also mean attic or workshop I believe. I'm not sure that helps in the understanding bit though. :p

Actually, that's not a door, it's a cupboard.
Astrid locked that messenger in there a week ago.
