media vision was responsible of Valkyria Chronicles 3 and shining blade

edit: first screen here:

It's seems to be similar to Shining blade (but with bigger map and little better graph)

I'd really like to give Blade and Ark a chance, but I don't know if I can make it through a game that I don't understand (story-wise). I need to know exactly what's happening, and why. Can anyone who has played it give me their opinion, on whether or not http://cyberakuma.livejournal.com/13430.html will be enough for me to enjoy the game?

I know it's relative. I'm just wondering, if story is important to me, while gaming, do you think I'll enjoy it.

Thanks.

Did you watch japanese anime with sub?

If yes, run buy the game. I don't speak japanese and only understand some word by hering them in many anime and I understand nearly all the Story of the game (which is dubbed during 95% of the game).

But the story is more enjoyable if you already played Shining Tears and Wind (or at least played Shining tears and watch Shining Tears X Wind) as the game is the direct sequel of the 2 games(and the Prequel of Heart) and one of the fun of the game is to see the return of the character (another fun is to find all the reference and Easter eggs to the old shining).

But if you don't watch anime anime with sub, the game will be pretty boring I think. Like Valkyria Chronicles and Sakura wars, 50% of the game is speeches with other character. And if the gameplay is good, the difficulty is very low (don't make any extra mission and don't use your reserve), so It's not very interesting if you can't like the character.

their plenty of oter relationship to build except the 5 girls who give us an ending (nearly all the character have their own story)

edit:
Oh, I didn't show that all the story mode was translated on this site, I think it will be enough to enjoy the game, but you will miss all the character story

but if you watch often anime in japanese with sub, you'll understand 50 % of the character story even without the translation,

It's look like like adam, there is many similarity.

the legs and the feets are exactly the sames, the hand and the canon at the same arm too. same thing, it the only thing that never change with Adam.

Don't forget that every design of adam is different

adam from Shining soul

adam from Shining force (2 different design)

Except all but the last one are all identifiable as Adam. The last has on slight resemblance on the limbs. Not enough similarity to be able to identify him as Adam.

Final conflict version is also very different, it's looks like a mecha from Appleseed. not original Adam.

The 2 other adam your post aren't the same Adam. Neo and Exa take place in another continuity

The Reason the Final Conflict Adam doesn't look like he should is obvious.
Remember, Yoshitaka Tamaki was not only the original artist for Shining Force 1 he was also the artist for Shining Soul. Salamander Factory did all the design artwork for SS, thus it has a greater shining feel than the more recent games. Indeed, even compared to Shining Force 3 (Which I think has great art) it still isn't as Shiny as SF 1 or SitD and SS artwise and that is because Tamaki did that art.

New Adam is just another robot, not the SAME bot. Its just a name homage.

no it's the same, new shining are in the same continuity as original.

But he was surely rebuid as new shining take place 1000 years after Shining force and have many similarity design.

And how do you know this, chevkraken? Have you played the game? If not, I suggest that you stop correcting everyone with your opinions and hypotheses, because right now that's all they can possibly be.

Well they could have been originally but they definitely made them separate villains later. I was always curious about that. :)

Sega have confirmed that except Shining force Neo/EXA/ Cross/Feather, all the Shining take place in the same world (the old and the news)

So except if Shining Ark give us the same trick as final conflict for DarkSol, Adam is the same as into Shining force Shining soul and Final conflict.

that you don't understand is this is not opinion and hypoth├ęsis, just fact given by Sega canon. Sega said Tony Shining are canon sequel from old shining, so they are, even if we don't like it, there is nothing to discuss.

Same feet, same cannon on his arm, same universe. Must be Adam.

Come on, the Shining Ark Adam doesn't look anything like the old Adam. It's very possibly a reference but its obviously not Adam.
