[20:35:01] <PSIGuest-469068498> OOOOOOOMG
[20:35:10] <PSIGuest-469068498> BEST ENGRISH YET

Just thought you guys should know. Also, Siliconera knows nothing of genres. Don't listen to them except for the "SRPG" part.

ALSO PPA WAS YELLING ABOUT IT SO: http://gungnir.atlusnet.jp/ NOW WE JUST HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL MONDAY. Be disappointed in the music with me and blame Kitten for having such an awesome title screen song.
CATGUN
For the second there I though it was Kitten 2 based on some of the screen shot...

I wonder when Sting will start making the next episode of Dept Heaven...
Rhiannon
It actually is the next Dept. Heaven game (and I've moved the topic so that's more obvious, and I'll give it its own forum once we actually have a decent amount of information to discuss). The last blog post heeere says it in plain English. Or uh, Japanese I guess. The point is it's actually confirmed by that instead of everyone being all "OMG STAFF IT HAS TO BE DEPT HEAVEN"
Yuka
I don't like a Dept. Heaven initial release being on the PSP. That doesn't sit well with me. :<
Raijinili
I bet you don't have a PSP.
Rhiannon
Don't worry. The PSP will be dead as soon as this game is released in English.

And then they'll move on to those new handhelds.

LET'S START "SPECULATING." I SAY JULIO IS EMELONE'S HALF-UNDINE KINDADAUGHTER AND ELISE IS GOING TO DO SOMETHING CRAZY IN UNDINELAND THAT WILL MAKE THEM NAME THAT PLACE AFTER HER FOR YU AND ALYSSA IS YGGDRA'S DAUGHTER/CLONE FROM THE FUTURE.

Listen to Walrus about this being VP2. He knows what he's talking about.

I don't personally have one, but I have access to one.
Shiokazu
how awesome we can wait this to be? i mean... its Sting plus Atlus working TOGETHER!
Rhiannon
Nah. Atlus is just their bestfriends publisher. It's going to be the same as it has been.

Unless someone's hiding something from me.
DustyHaru
Bah, silly Sting and their awful use of roses to cover swordlancesheathweaponthing.

Also Male Lead's weapon still looks like a dead tree.
chrishawke
They seem to be going with the organic look ever since Kitten.

yeah now that you said, i noticed that too...

its kind of cool, i like this style. gets a bit... Nordic to me. somehow
Irysa
main character looks really really derp
Shiokazu
so, its 28/2 already. and its almost(if not already) day first in japan.

how come the site isnt updated?

Some more bits and pieces from Siliconera:
http://www.siliconera.com/2011/02/28/gungn...stem-explained/

More so than what little else in that article I'd like to point out:

QUOTE
"Sting developed a tactical gauge system for Gungnir. Players can use this gauge to change the turn order. By switching allies into place you can set up a simultaneous strike on an enemy."
Wondering if there will be some kind of challenge where you have to somewhat abuse this system to get bonuses. Would be nice.

QUOTE
"While Sting is known for developing games with complicated mechanics, Gungnir is designed to be user friendly for strategy RPG fans who feel they aren’t good at the genre."
Was Kitten a bit too overwhelming?

no, kitten was just for the true hardcore audience.
Yuka
I liked Kitten's complicated nature, but I will admit that it was a bit difficult to play, especially if you're OCD like myself.
Walrus
Switching people around in the turn order is pretty RH.
Rhiannon
SHIO THE SITE HAS BEEN UPDATED FOR LIKE 18 HOURS SINCE YOU POSTED THAT THEY HAVEN'T UPDATED

MIGHT WANT TO CLEAR YOUR BROWSER'S CACHE IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY

CACHE CLEAR, BUT, SEEMS THAT THE SITE HATES ME. WHY SITE!? WHY DOES YOU HATE ME!?
Rhiannon
SO GUYS THE OFFICIAL SITE HAS THE OPENING MOVIE UP NOW AND GEE I WONDER WHAT THIS COULD BE

Alyssa's "lance" does, in fact, have a bunch of flowers attached to it. That's no sheath.
Walrus
Zekrom? The way these people draw old guys is getting annoying.
chrishawke
Looks as if they're sending children out to war.
Archeia
Am I the only one who thinks their character design isn't as elaborate as the others ;v; (the main's (Julio?) demon spear is awesome though).

Also damnit I want to see that opening movie but the site won't let meeeeee
DustyHaru
Here ya go

Gungnir Opening (Or what I assume it to be)
chrishawke
Playable demo of Gungnir to be made available on Japan's PSN on April 14.

Some other tiny bits about gameplay:
http://www.siliconera.com/2011/03/23/gungn...rk-on-april-14/
Rhiannon
I really hate how other places always have information up before Sting gets it on the site. :(

http://www.famitsu.com/news/201103/25041628.html
Rhiannon
HEY GUYS I'M PROBABLY AT LEAST AN HOUR LATE BUT THEY UPDATED THE CHARACTER AND SYSTEM SECTIONS OF THE OFFICIAL SITE
Rhiannon
AND AGAIN WITH UPDATES TO THE CHARACTER, SPECIAL, AND BLOG SECTIONS.

I'm pretty sure there was no Blog section before. It looks like it's just going to be like the Kitten one. It's probably filled with useful interesting information but since I only pretend to know Japanese I'll just tell you that Elise's name early on was Ecrire. Or... something like that. Yeah, I don't know since that apparently means "to write." Just blame Rai. And I guess everyone who cares about Gungnir cares about that Innocent Sin remake.

BUT ANYWAY SPECIAL'S GOT A FANSITE KIT WITH SOME BIG TRANSPARENT ART AND SOME SPRITES AND BANNERS AND STUFF. And romanizations for the easiest names ever: Alyssa, Elise, Julio, and Ragnus. Who would have guessed those could be anything other than what they are in those image names?
Enzd
They should have stuck with Eclaire.
P.P.A.
They updated the site again, adding a few pages to the System category (with short video clips to illustrate how the game works!) and a new blog post.
Enzd
I know it's just me but the site got a LOT slower >:(

Boost looks neat.
P.P.A.
To me it feels like it actually sped up a little. A few days ago everything seemed to take twice as long to load.
Rhiannon
TAKES FOREVER FOR ME. AT LEAST THE FIRST TIME.

The blog post was by Hiroki Asai and I do not understand what this person is talking about. Something about pollen and hay fever. And some "specification text" being over 16000 lines... I don't really know. I should probably just accept that I'll never have a clue what anyone's talking about if I can't hear them speaking.

AND ENZD LIKE I SAID IF HER NAME WAS SUPPOSED TO BE ECLAIRE THEN THEY CAN SHUT UP BECAUSE THEY FAILED ALL OF THEIR ENGLISH CLASSES. And probably never took any French classes. But I just... I know it's a possibility. :(
Shiokazu
they should have cling with eclaire. that would be a nice name.

DOES EARTHQUAKE MADE ANYTHING BAD HAPPEN TO THE GAME?
Rhiannon
Famitsu has some preview video thing now.
Enzd
Um, is that one old guy in a wheelchair? >_>
chrishawke
I have to stop staying up so damn late. Gotta do some two-hour driving later. Oh well, I'm in a good mood at the moment (unrelated to Gungnir updates).


According to this, Sting will release a demo on the 14th. That's next week. And something-something-something Twitter account.


Blog update about some Gungnir music. A 3-track mini album becomes available on Japan's iTunes. You can listen to samples of the mini album here: http://itunes.apple.com/jp/album/id427920067
Rhiannon
Another update to more than just the blag~

They've put up the PV that Famitsu had under Movies, and there's a second fansite kit with avatars/sprites/art of Fiona, Natalia, Paul (wasn't it Paulo...?), and Valery.
Enzd
So the demo comes out, like, NOW.

EXCITEMENT

EDIT: The demo is pretty good. There are a couple battles and you have access to a few different classes. The music is nice and some tracks make me think of FFT (that and the awesome sounds that are made when you move the camera around). ALSO there are a couple of dialog options, I'm not sure if they have an actual impact though.

I don't know if this is something that was mentioned in an article but at the start of a battle you can pick who your Ace is. I'm guessing this person is the leader and if they die the battle is lost. There are also flags sitting around the field that anyone can capture; these increase tactics gauge limit (by 2 I think) of whichever team took the flag.
Rhiannon
More blag, more fansite kit. THE LATEST BLOG IS SHIGEKI HAYASHI TALKING if that isn't exciting I don't know what is. SOMEONE FIGURE OUT WHAT THAT SONG SOUNDS LIKE I DON'T SPEAK PIANOKEYS

And the fansite kit this time has the flagbanners, some spritey avatars, and a bunch of screenshots. The screenshots aren't very exciting. Unless you find the fact that we have a マルディン exciting. How many people have we had with a name similar to that again? And what were they exactly? Because I totally don't remember.
Rhiannon
EXCITING UPDATE.

There's a page in the character section now for "The Inferno." These guys look pretty Kitten. Weren't the Accursed called Infernos or something? They seem to act like summons or something of that sort. One's named Einherjar (Atlus being screwed over again right here), I don't really know what the second one is called but hey it's some blonde angel, and then there's Midgardsormr.

There's also a fourth fansite kit with art for those new creeps, and some animated sprites of Julio, Ragnus, Alyssa, and Elise. And some screenshots.

And since it has apparently not been posted yet... Yeah.
chrishawke
Site update.

More characters under Garugandia. Twitter fankit #5 up. Blog update with some comic loaded with tons of Japanese. Good luck reading that!
Walrus
Everything is crazy.
Rhiannon
SOMEONE SAID ALYSSA'S LANCE LOOKS LIKE A CARROT
Enzd
I've never seen a white carrot before...
Dr Strum
Perhaps they're thinking of daikon.
Rhiannon
Sting scares me sometimes.
