What the **** was that?

Graham: Of course all the CPUs also have younger sisters. Because anime.
Paul: Well, they want to make sure they hit all the creepy demographics.
Graham: Yeah. None of them have glasses yet so one of them will have the glasses moe.

Well, funny you say that because they're making a PS Vita remake of the first game in the series and the CPUs will get glasses for the sake of disguises.

No, I am not kidding; they went that far.

Its a well known fact that glasses make everyone 100% cuter.

I disagree. Noire's glasses look horrendous.

ThunderCavalier:
We need a Part 3.

OK, so I have to admit... I am a sucker for this kind of aesthetic and these kinds of games, but usually because the gameplay is pretty awesome and the story... doesn't suck AS much as other Western games of similar quality (although this one is making it hard for me to defend it). Seriously, though, could they at least have tried to put... some effort into the voice acting, though?

Also... is this game Multiplatform? I would imagine I would like the ability to pick whatever console I wanted to save Gameindustri.

Voice acting on this kind of import can be hilariously bad... Try out Trouble Witches Neo for some pretty hilarious badness (or just switch the audio to Japanese and listen to actual actors emoting and being invested in what their saying)

What the crocodileo is going on? All I see is badly drawn boobs.

In any case, these two videos certainly made me sure of one thing: I'm probably never going to try out the dub. They just don't have the same feeling that the original voices possess.

I know right. So disappointing. English Histy can't be Pissty for Shitsy.

...goddammit.

Also Plutia is just not the same when she isn't HanaKana. She lacks the slooooooow drawl that makes her so...Plutia.

You'd have to be the biggest weeaboo in the world to consider a cast like that anything less than "really good".

English Neptunia is better than the Japanese cast, yeah I'll admit because I'm not ashamed to do so.

Chagen did you seriously register on this forum just to rant at me about something we've already discussed, I don't care about, and you could have talked to me on twitter about? Really?!

Please get a life.

I figured I could get to you quicker this way.

So... the PC gets no representation? That's rather a gyp...

Ah, how I love this series. It's goofy, cheesy and kinda stupid, but it knows it and I love it. I like the active character portraits, and the aesthetic and characters are cute and endearing. I originally got the first game because it was different and new and silly, even if it wasn't a particularly good game. The boobs were just a bonus. XD

Remember PC gaming is much less of a thing in Japan. That being said, this game has the PiiShii Continent and the Hello Continent, representing PCs and Smartphones, though not much happens on them and they don't have goddesses.

Hey don't blame us, you are fully aware that your audience is odd and slightly sadistic, you knew exactly what you were going to get when you asked if we wanted to see part 2.

And despite the fact that I have no idea what is going on I have this strange desire to see this continue...then again I still want you to do a LP of an Atelier game. (Although that may fry your brains and I don't want that to happen, I enjoy your work too much!)

You know, I would really love to see you guys do a Let's Play of this, just so I can see more.

And I'm not ashamed to admit it.

I'd like to see additional commentary at least on select scenes. Doing all of them.... well, that's a lot to do. You're easily looking at a good 5 hours of event scenes like these, possibly a lot more. Commentary on a bit of the dungeon-crawling and battles could be amusing. I don't know how LPs tend to approach dungeon-crawling and fighting mobs, but there's definitely rather limited commentary potential there.

Granted, the game does have some amusing attacks. Like these.

(And here's what you could do akin to that in Mk2.)

I am not a "weeaboo" and I also think the English casting is crap.

This article strikes me as relevant.

Porecomesis:

To be fair, you think everything about the series is crap...

I'm "shadowmaksim" from the NISA forums by the way.

Ah, good to see you.

And I do. Except for the premise (which was botched by poor execution), some characters and some moments. Of course, all of my problems come from the facts that most of the faults in the series come from that they could have been executed better. Even if you're completely on board with the "cute girls doing cute things" schtick like I am, it still isn't executed well.

Also, I love Skies of Arcadia: Legends, Ar tonelico: Melody of Elemia was okay, Fortune Summoners was great and Plastic Nee-San is ridiculously fun to watch.

Well Paul and Graham, I hope you learned a very valuable lesson: never let your fans vote on what you do :P

I freaked out a little when their heads tilted slightly. It was so... inhuman.

I saw the videos this morning went out and bough the first game, just cause...I have to play it I dont' know why but I must

Even within the fanbase, the split between those who like it and those who hate it is apparent.

Good luck...hopefully your experience will be the former and not the later.

I dont understand why they are little girls, is it made for old men or something?

I apologize for the lateness of post wth this vid, but I just thought of something. Since we know Neptune isn't the PC in this, does that mean the PC appears as an NPC in this?

"Why can't it be a PC?"

What?

"Why can't the PC be a PC?"

Well, the PCs are consoles here, so...

"Yeah, but the PC can't be a PC too? Doesn't sound very PC..."

Wait...you're saying the PC has to be a PC in order to be PC? Doesn't sound very PC to make the PC a PC, in my opinion.

"So consoles can be PCs, but not the PC? That's what kind of makes that sound very un-PC. I mean...the PC can also play games like any consoles."

Yeah...but it makes more sense for the PC not to be a PC because it can be the main antagonist. Or better yet, if it isn't the enemy or a PC, it can be an NPC that helps them.

"But if it can help them as an NPC, why can't the PC be a PC?"

Look...the PC being a PC, wouldn't be very PC because making it a PC based on its initials sounds pigeonholing and redundant. THAT'S why the PC works better as an NPC. The irony factor works well.

"Oooooooooooooooh..."

(Sorry about that. Had that stuck in my head for a bit and had to get it out. Bonus points if you understood all that without going insane.)

I think I would definitely watch a Let's Play of this. Out of curiosity, how long do you sit through that before you actually get to play the game?

"Because Anime" = Best logical thought process ever.
