Moonlit Agenda

June 30th, 2010


 So very much prettier… except for that rap…

As work sort of starts on Moonlit Lovers in earnest (still mostly going through the battle quotes, and I already see some typos/rewording issues in there… sigh…), it’s hard to not be amazed by how much better ML looks over Project GA. I can even choke down the nerd fist shaking about there being sound in space for all the delightful clanks and explosiions of bullets flying and hitting the much more detailed ships. Plus, actual challenge. That’s Milfeulle’s first stage and people are already almost getting shot down. And other characters have it even rougher. Chitose’s first stage is the same battle, but without Forte… and a Spard in place of the Elsior, so no resupplying. That makes things tremendously more interesting. It’s pretty easy to see that Project GA was delayed by nearly a year and they got all the bugs ironed out as well as got the graphics to at least decent for ML and EL.

The files for ML are sorted by route and each route is almost completely separate from the others (selected at the start of the game) with a handful of overlap files in each. That means that it’s almost certainly going to be easiest to work on this by route instead of having six different parallel playthroughs going at once. At the moment, it’s probably going to be in the order of Milfeulle, Mint, Ranpha, Forte, Vanilla, Chitose, which is largely based on alternating between the characters I like and don’t in order to keep me motivated. Chitose’s not part of the original ML release anyway and has to be unlocked regardless. Feel free to try to change my mind if you want.


I’ll also play nice and respectful and remind you to go vote for me in that blog penis waving competition. I’ve exhausted my amusement for it at this point, but since Kabitzin and I are both Cornell grads and I actually respect him and some of his minions, I figure I should at least acknowledge them. Although if there’s one thing Cornellians are known for in recent years, it’s choking in any tournament they’re involved in. Besides, I’m just one person anyway. Sea Slugs is so bloated that when it went to the beach, Greenpeace tried to drag it back into the water. So many men have been with that Namako thing that the only dis I can think of for her is disinfectant. Now that’s Ivy League debate.

Heh. Okay, that’s enough of that. I was expecting this week to be a lull between seasons so I could get some work done. That… didn’t turn out quite to be the case and there are six new shows airing in about the next 36 hours. If that doesn’t keep me busy, I’ll just gnaw off my arm. Aaaaaah, the heady rush of new seasons.

    Nama-ko is a classy lady!!!

    I wish I could say we are even more Cornellian, but since Ender and Kungfucius don’t write anymore I’ll have to settle for equally Cornellian.
