I've been playing Trace Memory and wanted to mention some cameos I found. You probably have found them already, but possibly not.
In the Golden Bird Room in chapter two before you take the E Book you can read the title of a book on the shelf. It's called 'Path of Radiance", subtitle of the Fire Emblem game. Then go in the Silver Bird Room and on the shelf with the N Book you can find a book called "The Legend of Zelda Chronology."
I'm playing through my second time, now. I'll see if there's any other books.

Really? Cool, no. I missed all of those. I was keeping my eyes wide open for cameos as well. AND I was stuck on the bookshelf puzzle for AGES.
But you may be referring to the other bookshelf puzzle. Regardless... I'll crack open the game later on (when my DS has recharged).
The puzzle with the piano. The books you use to find what you have to play. They are on the shelves where you find those book.(Only the "E" and "N" books, they don't let you check the books with the third book)
You're probably talking about the other bookshelf puzzle? The one with the key hidden in a book?

Rightoh. That's much sooner in the game. ;D
That second puzzle had me tearing my hair out for hours on end. I can't even remember if I solved it, or if I just got lucky.
But remember you have to look at the books BEFORE you take the "E" and "N" books. If you pick them up it won't let you look at the shelf.
The puzzle that gave me the most trouble was probably the broken pencil puzzle. Now that I've done it I can't believe I missed it the first time through the game. (And I think I got a bad ending for missing it.) The stamp puzzle had me confused for a little while, too.

Are you playing a different version to me or something? Like a US version or anything?
In mine they're just all called "old books"
Yes, it's the US version. Here's what all the books are called(From left to right):
Path of Radiance Fauvism: A History Fundamentals of Oil Painting Anatomy of an Artist E Book Working Outside Your Medium Fine Points of Figure Drawing The Many Faces of Watercolor
The Secret Lives of Plants Landscape Painting for Novices The Legend of Zelda Chronology A History of Battle Tactics Narrative: A Reference Guide N Book Ivy Manual of Style Tracing Bloodlines The Craft of Creative Writing Advanced Composition How to Write Dialogue A Feast of Words
Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)

Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)

nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.

Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.

Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.

Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.
Jul 16, 2021 10:38:22 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
