As Firemyst stated on last week's podcast, we have been playing the first Ar tonelico game through Skype. We would play for a few hours once or twice a week and try to be....roughly on the same page in terms of plot events. I haven't had much of an experience playing Gust games, let alone NIS America titles, and because I have heard about how much sexual innuendo appears in the Ar tonelico series, I figured it would be worth it to start from the beginning and see where things go. As it stands right now, Myst is roughly an hour behind me, because he decided that diving was far more fun than plot progression.

I have just reached Silvaplate trying to reclaim my beautiful Misha. When I lost Misha, I had only made it to lvl 2 Cosmosphere, so when I get her back I know I'll need to spend the time diving with her. On the other hand, I have been focusing a lot of time into diving with Aurica, and oh my goodness, she makes a sexy devil lady. I approve of said costume. I also know I need to work on getting dive points. Myst has so many more than I do, but he gets upset with me because I have more money than he does.
Also, I want Claire. It's bad enough every time you visit her that her triple Fs are totally in my face. Also, apparently Lyner likes women of the church and nun outfits. Wow, who knew?
Anyone have an idea roughly how long this game is?
More soon on our epic adventure!

I'm on my way up the tower again to go to Frozen Eye. After enough plot events, I'm finding it harder and harder to take this game seriously at all. This game is so silly and it does have a lot of charm to it, but I think it's mainly due tot he sexual humor that is throughout the entire dialogue. Also, the dungeons in this game are ridiculously short for the most part which quite a breath of fresh air compared to playing Persona 4.
I'm really enjoying the Cosmosphere events in this game. They are really fun and interactive. Still don't know who I like more between Aurica and Misha. Which Reyvatail is everyone's favourite?
Also, Myst, before you say it, I know Jack doesn't count.
More soon when I'm feeling less sick and sleepy.
I've been meaning to update this. Mikel and I started Aurica's path the other night and I've finally beaten the Musical Corridor. The puzzle in that area was so annoying to play while sleep deprived, so I think I had to restart it three or four times.
; I was so cranky.
Any ways, I'm enjoying the cosmospheres and have got to psychotic girl timez. Guys, both Aurica and Mishia have advanced on the crazy hot scale. First they were just hot, and now they are crazy hot. Win = ? Sexy Aurica time!
And yeaaaaaah. I don't think we will be playing any more of it this week, but maybe the following week? More soon!
