The tears of time


Didn't someone say they were working on a sequel to Extella? I'd like them to give it another go, although that universe is the least interesting part of Fate to me.

Extella Link, featuring Roland and fan favorite Al. Trailer was a few days ago in this thread.

i'm not sure the standard male outfit is a shirt, no pants, and asymmetric thighhighs. it just seems to be joking that they're both wearing half of a full set and were brainstorming which way to go with it

Can Satsujinki kill servants? If he kills them does the progenitor servant still get the memories?

Last I heard, the official answer to the question was that Shiki Tohno wouldn't be able to perceive a Servant's lines/points of death with his version of the Mystic Eyes of Death Perception. Shiki Ryougi would be able to perceive them, but even then she's still just a normal human and not a Servant, so she would really only be able to fight defensively since even the weakest Servant still has superhuman physical abilities.

Shiki in Extra does it by sealing the servantís movement and actions while fighting defensively. She killed 99 servants.

Right, but by the time he's Satsujinki his eyes are so sensitive he has to wear a blindfold. The more Nasu says something can't happen the more likely it is to happen.

Extella's story was written by Nasu and was poo poo, and Higashide proved with EoR3 that he can write a half-decent tournament arc so that and the Boruto writer (and Boruto has been non-terrible shonen) makes me think Extella Link's story will just be fights and goofy character interactions. Which is what I want from a musou game. So, good news.

As someone pointed out, the dude's good at writing scenes, but less good at writing stories.

Fortunately, Musous are mostly about the scenes.

also worth noting that Kodachi has already been on board with type-moon works. from nasu's bamboo broom talk it seems like riyo's original scenario was run through Kodachi's scripting.

TBF, it was pretty good ranting. Like, that VA really went ham.

Archimedes was a pretty lame villain, but that breakdown in the final route sure was something.

As much as I've disliked the bevy of Higashide's work I've been exposed to, Shimosa was great and provided Link is a story that is less up its own rear end than the original, this can be fine. I don't watch or read Boruto so idk about the quality there, but as long as they improve on the gameplay from Extella and the scenes have fun character interactions and less VELBER then this might be okay.

i haven't seen writer credits go past guesswork yet, unless you count the person who claimed to be translating for the chinese server saying they needed to contact the authors of the singularities to ask for info they were able to find out that Higashide, Minase, Sakurai, Meteo did EoR1-4 in that order.

(though it seems like everyone just kind of nods and agrees that Agartha is Minase and Salem comes from Meteo and the Shinjuku-Shimosa split is where all the debate happens)

Most of the japanese speakers I know are pretty sure it's like that, at least? :shrug:

I remember Extella's writing as good but I just tuned out or shrugged off Archimedes infodumps, and what sticks out in my mind is all the extremely good Bond Level scenes and Liz being the best idol-maid-villain-archimedes' weak point she could be.

listen, if you think the story that takes place in a modern day city and has a bunch of weird old men skirting around the edges while two girls in biker jackets have an unhealthy amount of homoerotic tension isn't by sakurai, you've never read any of sakurai's work

In regard to long hairstyles. A mageís hair can be use as their best Ďweaponí, for ingredient, or item, as it can amplify spells and the like.

Thatís why many mages keep their hair long.

I'm a little surprised Extella was popular enough to get a sequel because it suuuuuucked. Even if the plot/characters were popular it's not like most of them even originated in the world's shittiest warriors clone and if they wanted to write more stories about Tamamo and Altera they could have done so in a good game.

it was a painfully generic warriors game
