Yep. Not like I got anything better to do. About five hours in, enjoying it so far. I was not expecting a tactics style combat system, but I'm digging it.

And yeah, Estelle is great. She's kinda Lina Inverse esque in that she's like a shonen protagonist who isn't an annoying douchebag who the plot gives special treatement. Like, her flaws are actually treated like flaws instead of "quirky" behavior.

Trails in the Sky 1-3 will run on a toaster. Zero/Azure too but you have to rely on a fan-translation for those, though the translations are top notch.

The Cold Steel games IIRC are all on PS4 and possibly Switch in the future.

Any day now the Sky games will be on Switch! Any day now!

That's sad, anon, and another reason they need to re-release these games in the West. They've been ported several times in Japan, the console versions are just waiting around for someone to release them.

>>121088186
It definitely gets fleshed out a lot over the course of the games, too. What's really enticing for me is how detailed the history and politics of the world become and how concepts established in the first game are still relevant, so far six games in and more to go.
I looked at the official map of the country Cold Steel is set in and already knowing a lot of the history of the country established in the other games, my brain instantly went into Europa/Crusaders Kings mode imagining how everything played out.

The deep lore hasn't been delved into too much yet, but you can kinda feel it. The opening exposition and the fact there's an in-universe newsletter are already doing a fair amount to make this world feel lived in.

Also, am I just seeing things, or is there some weird gender politics stuff going on? Cause it keeps coming up. I'm getting Zeta Gundam flashbacks here.

1988. This here is based on the post communist revolutions in Columbia, Nicaragua, ect. The anti communist assholes the US was providing "technical support" to, started moving ahead with their own ideas, including making deals against american interests. Most famous one is probably Noriega, who might make an effective appearance.

They actually do have orbal telephones, I think only the military and Bracers have them at that point. It's that big box behind the Bracer Guild's counter.

The spread and advancement of telecom technology is actually a key plot thread throughout the entire series.

The lore isn't like, spinoff books and wiki reading deep, which is what makes it so well done to me. It's very slowly instilled in your head through actual gameplay/story/NPCs.

I'm totally against spreadsheets and machine translation. There's a reason that information is being relayed to the audience through dialogue and interactivity, and that doesn't work if the player doesn't believe the dialogue. Localization is essential. You can't just feed The Odyssey into Google Translate and expect to get anything out of it, it needs a professional translation.

Because in a lot of ways, it mirrors history.
Chemistry leads to combustion engines, powered flight, gas weapons, superior metallurgy, etc.
Atomic physics leads to bombs, reactors, GPS, cancer treatment.

In regards to Gundam and Mass Effect, it's the idea that without a couple of limitations imposed by those pesky laws of physics as we currently understand them, a whole new world of scientific and social progress would suddenly be possible. For better and for worse, of course.

The other end is the historical confluence, as anon says. It puts our own world's progress in a neat little linear perspective, and reminds us of both the good and bad things that have come through that progress.

Rumormill, which should always be treated skeptically is that IDW brass wanted to fire hama, and replace him with Aubrey Stitterson. The guy who hates the the US military. Of course when Stitterson blew his own ass up, and IDW had failure after failure, Hama was the last man standing.

It's not like there's many competent writers who know a damm thing about the millitary, or GI joe for that matter.
