The juxtaposition of the cheerful accordion music and the content of the line "ancient relics, called the machines, were discovered among the ruins" is something I found.. peculiar.
You see, I was imagining the Terminator movies set to this music.
As for Graham's "It's a funny story", I was expecting Story Guy to make a short reappearance. But "Shut up, that's why!" is also worthy.
It's a shame, really. I loved the Atelier Iris trilogy, but just couldn't get into this game. It played like Atelier Annie, the DS game. I think I made it a few months in, and just lost all will to play it. It's more alchemy-based, than battle-based.
Awesome episode. I've never heard of this game before in my life though lol.
The graphics resemble those of Dark Cloud 2, and therefore it intrigues me. A brief look into Wikipedia makes me say that I don't think I'd get the game, but it looks like Japan really freaking loved it when it came out. lol maybe one day.
This is one of the few times they watch a cutscene from a game I just beat last week...anyway.
1. Liam O'Brien voices the messenger, with the most awesome stupid name in existence: Sterkenburg.
2. Think of these games like the polar opposite of Persona. It has the same day to day sim structure, but there's no sense of impending doom, no insane difficulty, nor villain to speak of. Seriously, the only semblance of a bad guy is some old fart playing pranks on random days. It is also like Persona in the sense it is the most addicting game I've played since P4.
3. Leave it to Anime Fantasy Adventures (screw the JRPG label, I like this better) to not only have low budget animation standards, but to also be the only genre where Graham and Paul return to prominence. I keep wishing they would review FFX-2, but I'm guessing they know it makes fun of itself.
