Looks like that, so far, the translation is fine. Finally, for once NOA isn't adding their flavour to the games.
I've heard comments saying that they shouldn't have advertised it as anything related to SMT or FE at first, only to announce the FE contents later on as a surprise. The reason is to avoid raising the expectation too much.
Anyway, I'm glad that they aren't randomly altering names. NOA seems to think players are dumb and don't know how Japanese names work (okay, maybe true for those who aren't that much into Japanese pop culture). Seems not to be the case here.
I think this game is playable at PAX East. I wonder if there is any English version gameplay videos available.
Lance-Slash, Sword-Lunge... so that's what the Session skills are called. Lance-follow Slash would be clearer in indicating that it's a sword move, but it would be really verbose.
Play Records are still called that.
"Elec-lunge", huh... I suppose it's good? In the Japanese version, Session skill magic is referred to with their Fire Emblem names, though, so shouldn't that be Thunder?
They abbreviated "Skill" into "Skl". All Fire Emblem titles prior always keep "Skill" in full.
Stardom (a kind of Performa) is called Prestige here.
It keeps the three measurements and blood type. Those are stuff NOA likes to pretend don't exist.
I was worried that when they said they would raise Tsubasa's age, things would get de-synced in that Itsuki and Touma will have different ages as her, and their school years don't raise accordingly. Glad to see all these being addressed. (Although I don't think it's realy needed in the first place. Tiki's real-life voice actress was 16 at the time of recording her voices, for instance.)
Are those "medicines" supposed to be vulneraries?
They discarded Uta-loid TIKi's captalisation seen in the original version. It's now plain Tiki. Likewise, TOPIC is not just Topic.
Wild enemies are called Savage enemies.
Not bad at all. Far better than what NOA themselves would have done.

To those who plan to buy Tokyo Mirage Seesions ♯FE, do not attempt to fight the secret boss at Lunatic unless you have a LOT of time to spend. If you think reaching level 99 and further raising all of everyone's stats by 12 or so will do the trick, well...
Wait until the next playthrough (you can inherit your levels and items) and lower the difficulty to Easy if all you want is 100% completion. The "I beat this impossible boss at Lunatic" bragging right probably isn't worth it. (You can freely switch between Easy, Normal and Hard, but not Lunatic.)
nocturnal YL: This kind of reminds me of modern 3D printing, where the software needs to formulate the steps for replicating the object rather than just going in a simple 2D matrix manner as in inkjet printing. Nice video.

Evie the Mother Hen ❤✿: From the looks of it we could create a Pokémon Family ROM hack, FE Family, etc.; but if the number of stiching points was changed from the original design you'd need to fix that with more hacking.

Nester the Lark: I'm working on something for the forum. Hopefully I'll have it finished this week.

nocturnal YL: I settled on the games I'll showcase for my NinDB Top 25. I've tried a lot of games, but a list of favourites is going to be imbalanced regardless. There are absolutely no NES, N64, DS and original Game Boy games in my list.
Apr 26, 2021 14:41:07 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Given that I just said what my favourite games are not long ago, my list will be unsurprising. Now, should I attempt to rank them? What aspects should I highlight to make them more interesting? Hmm…

Nester the Lark: Remember the "Everybody Votes" channel on the original Wii? There was a section where you could submit your own suggestion for a poll. I seem to recall two of my suggestions being used, but I only remember what one of them was.

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.)
May 6, 2021 9:58:40 GMT -5
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…
