what kind of game is Atelier Rorona? do they say?

Think Mana Khemia, but more crafting/synth centric. I THINK it's still considered an RPG though.

Oh, a new PS2 RPG.

Not that big a fan of Atelier games, (at least of Atelier Iris) but I really did enjoy AT2 (Mana Khemia was meh.)

Maybe this one will be good

Can anyone tell what the two trademarks are? One seems to be indicating that Square Enix's is Dragon Quest Swords 2 if I understand my acronyms here.
It sounds like a DQ subtitle (assumption made by me here). And it has much in common with DQS's subtitle.

Eh ? From the scan of the index :

- Biohazard : Dark Side Chronicles (Wii)

Direct sequel to UC ? Not unexpected if so.

hahahaha reuc2 gaf backlash is going to be huge!

Didn't people like the first one? Light gun games do nothing for me, but I thought the general vibe about it was positive around here.

Atelier Rorona :) [PS3] :(

Not enough on the system yet that justifies me purchasing it... Not to mention being all poor and junk.

On a related note, IGN heavily hinting at Umbrella Chronicles 2 on their podcast tonight..
Seemed to me like they pretty much confirmed it :O

Some quotes from the conversation: "EH!" "Meeehhh" :lol

Was kinda hoping for a traditional RE game, and not a light gun version.



RE4 sales way above expectations, soooooo what do we have...


RE4 engine and controls shoehorned by an outsourced team to a HD IP.

Lightgun shooter for the actual Resident Evil effort.

The mind is boggled.

Heh, Dark Side Chronicles SOUNDS like the type of name a mischievous member of one of them chan websites would make up. But if it is true and it is Umbrella Chronicles 2, I'm willing to give it another go for my love of lightgun games. The first was lame as hell though, so I hope they improve it a lot.
