Wow, I’m behind by so many issues. But at least I’ve caught up now. Continue reading
There was a serious gap in time on my blog where little to nothing was posted, only to be followed by me saying that I would be shelving The Turtle Who Had Wings due to issues getting a stable artist. Today, I intend to bring everyone up to speed with this short post, both on that and on other things. Continue reading
I knew going into this one that I’d be out of my element, but I never expected to be as defeated as I was. On today’s #1 Quick Fix, I’ll be talking about Elminage Gothic. You may have no idea what that game is, and you wouldn’t be alone there – I pay attention to niche games and had never heard of Elminage. Some quick research, however, shows that it’s a small series or first-person dungeon crawlers, and this is its fourth entry. This particular entry was on PSP and 3DS in Japan, and Ghostlight has released a Windows port with higher-resolution artwork and in English as of Thursday. Despite going with a higher-resolution, though, I will note that not all artwork is HD – a lot of the backgrounds in town are blurry on my 900p screen.
Wow. It’s been just a few days shy of 2 months since I last wrote one of these posts. Since last time, much has happened. One major event being that I shelved The Turtle Who Had Wings. I may be starting on this sooner, as a result.
One very, very important part to any RPG is the overworld. How do you get around from battle to battle? How do you go through towns and get stuff done to prepare for these battles?

Lyrics are in multiple combined languages. A translation can be found here.
Welp. This isn’t gonna end well. Today’s Under Your Radar is Ar tonelico Qoga: Knell of Ar Ciel. To preempt anyone wondering what that means, all but “Knell of” is written in romanized Hymnos, which is a language created for the purpose of this series. To simplify greatly, it means “Yggdrasil Finale: The Chime That Signals the End of the World”. The Japanese title is much simpler, being Ar tonelico III: Sekai Shūen no Hikigane wa Shōjo no Uta ga Hiku (lit. “Ar tonelico III: The Girl’s Song that Pulls the Trigger of World’s Demise”).

This post was, honestly, a long time coming. I just don’t know what to do anymore.
For those unaware, the tenth artist on The Turtle Who Had Wings hasn’t yet quit per se, but all signs point to life forcing his hand. Of course, that also means that’s the tenth artist who’s needed to withdraw from the game. On Twitter and Skype yesterday, I jokingly referred to this as the game being cursed. Continue reading
