Trails in the Sky thread
Winter 2013 is finally over!
Now when can I preorder this game so I can give Xseed money?
So Tita is on the game's icon when you put the game on wishlist. Hatsuu must really like the canon loli.
not until the 3rd. So you guys best be buying this so Xseed knows it's profitable bringing more Kiseki games over.
Yes I'm shilling the game, but that's because they're good games.
8th for THIS GAME SUCKS, YOU TELL ME I GOTTA PLAY FOR 30 HOURS FOR IT TO GET GOOD
The games are too niche. It's pretty much impossible to have them become popular enough to bring the 3rd.
Moreso when you rely on people like this >>254415440 to buy FC and SC, which they most likely won't.
>b-but this game gets good after 20 hours!
>how can you say the game is bad if you didn't even finish it!
>you've finished the game, how can you not like it!
I must say I'm very surprised it has a fanbase at all given only the first game was out but...
I will tell you this, if you enjoyed FC and you're learning moonrunes then you'll most likely be a fan of the series.
That's not good though,the series are a huge money sink if you allow them to be
damn, this is harder than it looks. Ys Napishtim might be my favorite Ys game, but Felghana has the best mechanics and boss fight.
That's not good though,the series are a huge money sink if you allow them to be
I'm so tempted to import the Chinese LE of Ao no Kiseki just for the Rixia nendoroid. And I already shell out for a plane ticket to see JDK Band concert in Taiwan this 9/13.
Facom material collection's google plus archive is down too. Where else am I suppose to get Falcom's secret mail wallpapers now?
$1300 so far, and still counting here
I've seen people who spent over 2k though, on exclusives and importing LEs from china, plus WonderGOO and other festival exclusive merch.
I'm gonna bitch at falcom about the chinese getting special treatment ;_;
yeah seriously, the Japanese themselves didn't even get most of the mini Nendoroids here.>>254417352
Noel nendo when?
too bad you can't bump your own thread anymore, I used to samefag alot to keep the thread alive while posting Falcom arts
dammit Lloyd, you shoulve given all the girls the D before shit got real in Crossbell
I still don't understand if these games are legit good or if it's just accumulated build-up hype from delays.
I really like Ys so I know Falcom can be good, but TiTS clearly isn't anything like Ys in every aspect.
Used wrong picture without pic related. Oh well
I'm importing the one with Leonhardt so far, and the one with Joshua.
Dunno what I'll do with the fujo dakis though
like the other anon said, the first game of the Trails in the Sky trilogy is just good, all the other games after it bar the latest game Sen no Kiseki are GOAT jrpgs
Lloyd isn't a harem MC. Well, he is, but he just happens to be one.
He's a detective who happens to have girls falling for his dick. Really, these scenes in the game are so every once in awhile the harem thing is really just a small part of his character
woah there, you're approaching BETRAYIFICATIONS territory with that screenshot. But it's funny most of the BETRAYIFICATIONS in the series are done by
people in glasses
They should rename Ao no kiseki for "shit hitting the fan: the game"
The games solely rely on execution . You'd have to play it to answer your question
>Legend of Heroes
You're an asshat. Why are you on /v/?
ok now you're reaaaaly going into Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood spoiler territory here. Ease off the climatic screenshots dude
One of the chinese LEs have a Rixia daki on one of the sides, and Ellie on the other side of the daki.
cue all the assholes who have played every game saying "oh thats nice i hope you get the other games that are probably the best ever made and are exponentially bigger and better and probably will never be translated"
fuck you fuck you fuck you fuck you fuck you fuck you fuck you fuck you fuck you fuck you fuck you fuck you
don't worry, just support Xseed's localization effort and Ao no Kiseki will come to you Soon™
You can skip the third they said
My bad, they're mostly contextless screenshots though
Can you even beat him in that fight without NG+
Is there even any rewards for it?
I got my ass kicked by him and
Ariosso I was wondering about that.
I'll go for the round 2 on NG+ though
I have shitter internet so all I can play are single player games on PC. But I'm not complaining because I'm surrounded by all these Falcom games
I screamed like a little girl when I saw Estelle using that S-Craft
guide said to stack evasion, that water spell that increases your AGI. Raise Ellie's ATS with Fortuna. Have Randy and Tio support with buff and debuff. Use Lloyd's craft to vaccum Sigmund and
I didn't have enough resource at the time to pull off this strategy against Sigmund, but it worked against
Ariosafter a few tries because his attacks are just so damaging and goes through Tio's Zero Field
Now give me your address so I can come and steal it.
It's okay anon, the games aren't for everyone. The best you could do is give SC a shot, if you still don't like it then you can drop it for good.
Every new announcement for this translation first brings happiness and then crippling depression.
I got very bored when playing it on PSP so I dunno if I want to get this
>you will never play this version of pom
I commend your effort
I'm afraid of the blowback.
That series is really good, but it's a bit special, and to be honest the first one is flawed on a lot of points.
I expect a whole lot of "THAT GAME IS SHIT I'LL NEVER TRUST VEE AGAIN" the day of teh release.
Anyone else almost cried?
We've been waiting for this since SC
We're talking about possibly the most detailed and immersive JRPG franchise around, there's so much text to translate that you simply can't expect a good translator to want to pick it up without charging a lot for it.
>I don't like Renne.
Then you can go fuck yourself bud
Xseed could skip the third and go straight into zero, but you'd lose a lot of references that happens in the dialogues, and scenes.
Plus how the 3rd is pretty much a game that fleshes out the religion of Eidos.
I thought it was damn nice how in FC and SC you see the churches in town, but only in the 3rd that you get to see how deep that rabbit hole goes.
They needed a whole game to explain what the 3 superior elements, and even shit about the fucking bible.
Then you have how the game is literally obsessed with the number 7
>TiTS FC will be released on Steam seven days from now
>"I'm not playing that garbage, you have to play for 20 hours for it to get good!"
>"p-please play the first game, the whole thing is boring and shitty but it'll be worth it when we release the sequel 4 years from now (n-not really because it's not gonna sell enough lol)"
Yeah, maybe I'll consider pirating it.
>Gurumin on Steam
>TiTS FC coming out on Steam and GOG
>Half Minute Hero 2 got an english release
>TiTS SC is coming out on Steam and GOG
All is right with the world.
Agate and Titascene on SC was so heartwarming.
Wasn't the CF translator kinda pissed with agate?
There is a fan translation project for Zero. Maybe they can buy what's done after releasing 3rd and release Zero faster.
I hope they patch the game if all the problems with the text aren't fixed by release. It looks pretty ugly as it is.
I'm thinking about just importing them and instead of straight up learning moon I'll just look up the kanji and shit and figure it out. It might take thousands of hours to beat the game but it might make my nihongo better without suicide inducing flashcard bullshit
>bought the physical release of the jap PC version
>bought the english psp release
>planning on buying the steam release
You can't stop me.
Tio is love
you're forgetting kai
Sauce? Not saying I don't believe you, but you have a link to the publishers talking about this I would like to read it.
It was story heavy with a shitty ass story and the creator of it is now totally focused on Senran Kagura so it's not like it's a big loss.
I'm a bit confused. I looked up the game on wiki and it aid something about this being part of a trilogy with each part having a series within itself.
What's being released on Steam and how do I get the others?
Post yfw Winter 2013 is finally coming
>pirated the trilogy on PC because I wasn't sure if I was going to like it
>loved it to death
>bought the trilogy on ps3 and all limited editions
Will I ever find the strength to forgive myself?
The story was totally cliche, but it was hard to tell whether it was trying to be cliche, or if they weren't trying to be cliche.
If we were to be honest the story probably stemmed from Knight 30, so blame the first game for that.
Buy them as well if you want, but I would recommend downloading the games from nyaa and hooking the text. I did that and it only took me about 150 hours each to 100% FC and SC, even starting from next to no knowledge of Japanese.
The only path to forgiveness is sending Falcom 150 dollars with a picture of you cry and holding a sign that says "I'm sorry."
Doesn't count as 'shit'. Though that's not as good as the original. Probably will get better once it manage to get a -50% (it missed the 50% community sale this summer sales).
Overture and Judgement had like, almost zero fucking jokes. On a satire game that's fucking unforgivable. Just saying "We are being cliche because we're trying!" doesn't change a damn thing, it's still lazy ass cliche writing.
I will forgive them because the Venus Seven are delicious.
man, this years summer sale was terrible. Same game put on sale over and over and categories such as Female Protagonist. At least Ys games went on sale one week afterwards.
I'm happy they brought it over, HMH is the game that made me finally feel getting my PSP was worth it, it only took nearly 3 years for a title that finally made the puchase worthwhile.
Though I have a few friends who would be into it, they were all under the mindset of they didn't want to pay the normal price for it and are waiting for a sale.
>Will I ever find the strength to forgive myself?
IMAGE IS A HUGE FUCKING SPOILER DONT CLICK ON IT UNLESS YOUVE GOTTEN PAST CHAPTER 4 OF AO NO KISEKI
Even in BETRAYIFICATIONS there are huge plots. I have to turn the volume down during the boss fights because the moans are borderline JAV
>categories such as Female Protagonist.
i can't believe you actually got mad at that
I posted in those threads acting like it was the end of the world, and now i find out some of these people weren't being ironic
you huge faggot
I think they were trying to be every jRPG at once, including HMH. And it kinda failed.
I mean... there were Final Fantasy references, Chrono Trigger references, Dragon Quest references, TLoH references (it's the name of the final fucking story quest!)... Anime references too, now that I think about it.
I'll admit that I still enjoyed it, and the map creation is fun... but it's waaaay different from the first game. Nowhere near the same, and the puzzle dungeons were horrible. Demon Maze was fucking horrible, and then near the end they had to instakill mobs that basically made the whole thing 10x more tedious.
At least the music was good.
well I'm not anally devestated, just annoyed games like Ikaruga keep losing to trash like these
>spoiler for game I'll never get to play
I honestly didn't know what the fuck to think when I saw her talking to KeA first.
My mind was blown in all possible pieces when that scene happened.
When shit went down, it went down like a motherfucker.
I don't know how they do it man, I don't know how they connect all the dots in a way that make it so fucking satisfying to see.
There are now. Xseed have only licensed 1-3. They will not be localizing them unless SC and 3rd are MASSIVE successes on Steam. FC almost bankrupted them and I highly doubt putting it on another platform where piracy is easy as fuck is going to help their cause. Even if they do release them, Xseed release 1 every 2-3 years while Falcom release a new game every year.
What if you do get to play it some day, and you'll never be able to forget the spoilers you've been exposed to?
It happened to me with /v/ hammering
ADACHI IS THE KILLERinto my head over and over.
I can't say I'm exactly fluent, but it's helped immensely. The games use simple sentences, and it's pretty easy to piece together what people should be saying given the context, which is great for beginners. The only somewhat difficult thing about the text is the kanji it uses sometimes, and with a text hooker that's not a problem at all. Just don't expect to understand everything completely at first if you do try.
From all the hype surrounding Tits it better be the Planescape Torment of jRPGs.
>okay now I'm motivated to learn nihongo lets get back into the game motherfuckers
>open up anki
>64 due 20 new
Haha, since you're playing Ao no Kiseki Evolution where all the dialogue are voice.
In the original her line concludes the chapter and is voiced for some reason, telling us of the significance.
Oh and by the way, the kanjis between brackets, is it
the treasure of zero? My mind was blown off so hard when I realized why the first game was named zero no kiseki.
Fuck falcom for putting a HUGE spoiler in the Ao no evo opening.
Seriously, fuck them. Them or Chara-Ani, whoever decided to put
Arios fighting Lloydfor whatever retarded reason.
I hope you're using vocabs you see as you play vidya, watch anime, or read Japanese articles and not use a premade deck. That's a huge waste of time since you're forced to memorize words or variations of the same word with no context.
>Unfortunately, we looked into this and it was not possible for us to include Japanese voice acting. We did wish to have it, but we could not. I'm sorry.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAND FUCKING DROPPED
>Ho hey, I'll just massage the bare back of my dead brother's wife
It's out, and it's called Nayuta no Kiseki
There is only one Kiseki game translated, so I wouldn't go talking like you know anything about the series.
Also the translation ruins the game. The point is that a large amount of the dialogue is kanji-only and in fact often conflicts with the accepted patterns of kanji usage. There is no way to preserve this in a translation short of leaving translator's notes on every line, so Kiseki should have never been translated to begin with. Especially since dumbass westerners like you who don't understand it can now play it with a shitty Xseed translation and bash the game for not conforming to their misguided preconceived notions.
This game is not for you, it's not for any of you, so stop playing it and stop acting like you know anything about it.
To be even more blunt about it, Kiseki is for expert JRPG players only. Do not play this unless you are interested in metafiction and bending the game medium itself. Do not play this unless you have an understanding of JRPGs as a canon and are prepared to critique it on a literary basis. Do not play this if you do not understand Japanese. I am sick and fucking tired of westerners playing this game and acting like they know shit about it. Kill yourselves immediately.
We can only trust Tom's word in that CF will just be a translating bot for SC
Nayuta and Zwei are different.
yup indeed it is. I just remember the audio eargasm when this plays during the climatic fight against
Even better than Silver Will Super Arrange against Loewe
>tfw Kisekifags are literally this delusional
It's a shit franchise, dude. None of you go into that level of detail with it, either, you just endlessly circlejerk about OHHH MUH WORLDBUILDING MUH INTRICATE PLOTS and post "spoiler images" of two characters meeting, which is SUCH a spoiler.
Fromdrones? Weak. Meleefags? Pathetic. Kisekifags are so autistic they make Sonic fans look well-adjusted.
I've just been doing this deck of elementary school kanji. I'm not sure how to go about making my own decks and stuff and it sounds really confusing. I definitely don't know enough to even start playing games in japanese.
>When Lloyd was young, I used to wash his back in the showers.
I'm frustrated there's no /ss/ doujin out of this.
Before you faggots get baited any further
start by memorizing and recognizing the radicals so you can search up new kanjis faster
Why Rixia is in Sen II instead of Ellie ?
How hard is to be able to read simple mangos with furigana?
I have the feeling that if I get to that point shit would be smoother, and I have a good ammount of manga that isn't translated but has furigana that I want to read.
Ellie is too busy with diplomatic stuff, Tio and Jonah became l33t hackers on the orbal net, so all that remains are Rixia and Noel joining Lloyd on the front line.
I'm not sure why it says 1.2 hours when her profile says 78, what the shit is up with Steam's time tracking anymore... no I get it, we actually went back to Winter 2013 and it's her playtime from then
>mfw japanese grammatical structures
See you next week for the usual "I COULDN'T DO IT ANY ADVICE"
what more do you need? You can even look up Japanese words by typing its romanji pronunciation there.
Finally I can play a game I played years ago on a handheld.
>tfw you realize why they called sora no kiseki, sora no kiseki in Ao
>you will never pat her head
Why even live
KIRINO A SHIT
>Tio will never run to hug you while breaking your ribs with her breast plate
That artist's legs are really nice.
too bad he got hit with a serious case of same-face syndrome now. It's time for Falcom to switch to a new artist or bring Haccan back.
I'm not going to shit on this nice thread because you have poor taste on girls.
Still, please proceed to softly, lovingly and gently
go fuck yourself.
Your taste is so shit I bet you don't even like Estelle. If you dare say something bad about her I'll find you and insert my penis up your ass so gently that you'll have mixed feelings about it and feel guilty for falling in love with me.
>Japanese complaining about not getting this superior version with jap language
>Only a few hours after the subforums opened
>B-BUT NO ONE IN JAPAN WANTS TO USE STEAM
The artist from your pic and the artist from the pic of the post you're quoting are two completely different people by the way.
Just thought you should know
>b-b-but we don't get to have trading cards and achievements unless you let us have your version!
>j-just because you guys had to wait 20 fucking years doesn't mean you get more than we do!
oh it's a she? I've been led to believe it's the same artist from Zero to Sen. Who are their names so I can credit them properly?
>TiTS PC finally
>Gurumin PC unexpectedly
>FFXV actually in development
>KHIII in development
>Guts getting off the boat
>translations for my favourite Light Novel series
Japan is saving 2014 for me.
>the very start.
holy fuck, Toval and Sara just reeks of same-face, Falcom seriously needs a new artist now.
eh don't bother replying, there were shitposters talking about sameface and trueseki bros back on /vg/. Don't let it happen here
I want Oath of Felghana and Ys Seven's artist to come back.
I haven't been there in weeks.
It's literally a shitposting containment thread now.
it's a stretch but I love Oath/ Origin/ Napishtim artist's artstyle too. Seven also looks distinct enough to be memorable. Chronicles and Nayuta looks good enough to be waifu material without falling into sameface territory
Falcom will probably change character design after Sen.
Sen's character designs are pretty good imo
Chronicles artist gave me a good case of armpit fetish. There are so many pit shots in these illustrations god damn.
>Sen's character designs are pretty good imo
Hmm let me think
generic tsundere ojousama
polite class president with big boobs
honorable hippie who won't shut up about m-muh wind
smug rich person with daddy issues
so bland that I can't even think about his defining trait other than that he hates rich people
I don't feel like typing more but I do like Millium, Sara, and especially the super maid Sharon
Oh yeah Gideon, Scarlet, and Gideon are fucking expys of Celceta's Gruda, Bami, and Gadis who are one dimensional villians with no character depth other than being bad, and wrong.
Tita is useless in FC, and rarely available so don't bother. Schera has that craft that raises your ATS, so she's great for utility. You're going to be abusing that craft during the Lorence fight, motherfucker takes forever if you don't steal his turns
> who won't shut up about m-muh wind
>This wind, 'tis a good wind
PPSSPP doesn't have the same quality as the PC version, and the Steam release has a reworked translation, making the PSP version obsolete
The fuck. Calm the fuck down.
Character designs and their personalities are completely unrelated to one another.
Take a deep breath now.
Soundtrack is pointless since it comes included in the game files
Zin/Zane is 20 something,
Richardis also in his late 20's (Althought he's only playable in 3rd), Kevin is 20 something, Muller and Julia are also late 20's (Julia probably is in her 30's). Olivier I'm not sure, but he should be early 20's too.
That's Tales I think.
Trails is pretty popular in Japan, but not as much as SMT and tales.
Disgusting pandering garbage. Pic related.
Olivier's Imouto was best Imouto during Sen, is not even a contest. Elise is just there to pander to the disgusting incest audience
>OMG ONII CHAN MAKES ME SO MOIST BUT I CAN'T CONFESS WHAT SHOULD I DOUSHIO?
Her and generic bottle blonde tsundere were bloody disgusting
Your first quote is from Ao no kiseki
Second quote is from Zero no kiseki
5th game and 4th game of the series, respectively.
100% SC and I still have no idea of what he's on about.
Why are there so many people spreading misinformation? Are they trying to boycott the English release or what?
>hurr durr the games are censored
>next game comes in 5 years and the third one never!
>THEY WILL NEVER EVER BRING MORE GAMES
Jesus, kill yourselves.
And guess what, Wyrdwad blew him the fuck out over it, and guess what, his personal views won't change the translation any, so I hope you all can keep being mad and retarded and keep throwing hissy fits about how things are when they aren't.
Fuck you people are goddamn babies.
Fans have been waiting 3 fucking years for SC and there's still no date. I have managed to learn Japanese since then and play the entire series. If you seriously think that's acceptable you have no standards at all. Xseed have handled this series extremely poorly.
Something about a forced marriage sidequest.
Third one has a very, very, very low chance of ever coming out. Hatsuu has gone on a limb sayingthere is no way they'll work with Zero and Ao.
Not exactly misinformation, my xseed white knight friend
>letting hype possibly ruin your experience with games
Don't do that.
>sen gets chinese and korean translations or some shit like they're nothing
>getting a game from 2007 into english is a desperate struggle
I wish some other company could translate the games or something. Why are xseed bothering to translate them if the biggest draw of the series is it's story and they know they can't continue with the series because it's too damn big? It seems like a waste of time and is just gonna give people blue balls.
Dont come in expecting your home village destroyed after youre told to retrieve some ancient crystals. Expect a grand adventure as you explore a country town by town solving people's problem while winding up in a conspiracy.
Someone posted something about that shit on twitter on the forums around the time it happened, and Tom apparantly wasn't too subtle about him having a long talk with SpaceDrake about it.
>sen gets chinese and korean translations or some shit like they're nothing
You mean same day release as Japan? Cause that's what they get. Meanwhile we have to deal with Xseed.
>I've heard such good things
I'm fan as fuck, but even I know these games aren't for everyone.
Even if you see people praising there's still a high chance the games aren't meant for you.
This is the only thing in my life that really depresses me and makes me want to die. The only thing that stops me from truly being happy.
fuck Elize, she's the most blatant anime stereotype. I hope she winds up being the Aristocrat's fuck toy.
Grinding won't happen, if you try the enemies pretty much give you one point of EXP after you get above their level.
And the games are all about getting wrapped up in political bullshit and WHY WOULD YOU BETRAY US AFTER ALL WE'VE BEEN THROUGH
Who gives a shit? Dual audio usually costs more than it's worth and this is a PC game. You'll likely be able to just mod it back in. You could add voice acting from the PSP version of Ys Oath into the PC version so I don't see why it couldn't work similarly with TitS.
>hey buy this game multiple times on two platforms and maybe we'll translate the other games and you can finish the story
>oops sorry those games are too big. thanks for the money though
I've been strung along for long enough. They should be real and just stop this shit. It's never going to happen.
Slow. At least the first game is.
FC is like, the first part of a plan, of a plan of another plan that will develop into another plan.
FC is like the beginning of the beginning.
You get rewarded for pushing through it though.
Alfine is pretty adorable though, so is Cedric. But Elize can choke on a pile of NTR dicks. Fcuk this foster sibling incest cliche
we will never get off Ouroboro's Orpheus Project's wild ride. Both Crossbell and Erebonian Empire are merely part 2 of it.
Well, in FC's defense it's really like it was pointed out.
A very atmospheric game. What falcom was going for with FC was sort of a young/naiive feel to it.
You can understand that by listening to the theme song of FC.
So you can notice a very innocent feel to it
And then you have SC
Which has a more serious sort of tone.
like it or not, Xseed is the best bet we got to English Kiseki. NISA won't do it, Atlus won't do it, and Sony America would rather port Borderlands 2 to Vita than translating Sen to English
Fucking Taiwan and China man.
I'm so fucking mad right now, why don't we get this cool shit.
Shine of Eidos is so beautiful. Now I'll have to listen to Sophisticated Fight and and Strepitoso Fight again.
Is this Falcom classic's new channel? Does this mean he'll put his image archives back on jewgle+?
I have a Korean copy and the translations aren't the best as we have some errors and speech patterns that are pretty cringeworthy. But the game is more than playable and dialogues mostly work
Also, that cover
>illustration done by Haccan
WHERE CAN I PREORDER
Sorry if I sound like a cunt but I get mad jelly when I remember all the shit Japs don't get.
At least Japan has wonderGOO/Comiket stuff
nothing as good as china so far though
I've tried and tried and tried and I can't do it. My brain just doesn't work right. But every single mention of this series just gives me more motivation to kill myself, and every new update from the bunch of bumbling fucking idiots from xseed translating an ancient game with one hand up their asses while other places get translations handed to them on a silver platter just fills me with hatred. I can't believe a stupid fucking video game is making me so mad.
I know we all have different taste and I respect that, but Fie is worst Sen. Emotionless girls are so boring. The only difference in her portraits is literally the change in eyebrow heights.
>emotionless girls are so boring
Back off mate
>Sen no Kiseki ?
Say that to my face and not online and see what happens.
>dat Tio blush
What sidequest was that again?
at least she's not the worst to the point of being absolutely irredeemable. I take it back. Worst Sen is Elize.
>this awful taste
And Fie is not emotionless, she is a quiet prankster and lazy/unmotivated.
Speedster characters are always fun to use even if others are better at their job
Plus probably the best leader character to use.
Still, Gaius and Eliot are the best party members.
Which version did you buy? Was there anyone crazy enough to dip 200 on that retarded chara ani bundle with 2 copies of the same game?
