Comic 539 – “Ni No Kuni!”



Errol: We were up till 1:30am playing Ni No Kuni. It’s made by Studio Ghibli and the Level 5 (who made Professor Layton). I threw my money at them I was so excited. πŸ˜€

So far, the game is very pretty. There are a lot of animation sequences and although the story seems simple to and standard to RPG’s, it isn’t dull. πŸ˜€

I also ate almost all of Manpans food. It was a great night. πŸ˜€

Manda: I am very tired today :D. ugh…maybe I should call in sick…stupid guilt stopping me. Anyway! Yes, the game is extremely pretty but I can’t wait to get past the tutorial stage (which seemed to take us 3 hours!) so that we can get to the meat of the game (which seems to be pokemon battles!). Right now we’re getting interrupted every two minutes to be told of yet another feature! Phew! I was actually expecting Errol to play and me to watch since I actually like watching games, but he told me to play and I only panicked a couple of times during battle! Also, when hungry, thirsty and excited Errol is essentially three ten year old’s rolled into one.

  1. There should always be chips! XD And of course there was knitting. Was the game inspirational at all for new projects?

    Also I nominated the Nanomusical for a Shorty award. Hopefully you guys can get some more of those πŸ™‚

    • Thanks Jezbel! Hopefully we can get more nominations! πŸ˜€

      The game is beautiful… but everything is always inspirational for new projects! That’s my problem… πŸ˜€

  2. I’m so envious! I pre-ordered it millenia ago, but I haven’t even received a ship notice or any other news, and when I go to my order page and say to check the delivery status, it doesn’t return any information. Also, where my order when I ordered it said “Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch – Wizard’s Edition Club Namco Exclusive”, now it says “Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch – Wizard’s Edition Club Namco Exclusive SOLD OUT”. I’m worried that I’m stuck in back-order hell or something somehow and I won’t get the game for months.

    • Yeah, Errol had me running around my neighbourhood to find a copy. They were sold out at every EB Games and but there was a few copies at my local Future Shop. It was an epic quest; full of concerned sales people and smug guys who smirked at me while they got their pre-ordered copies. The sales lady thought I was nuts when I eagerly snatched it from her But then immediately looked unsure and panicked when she asked β€œDo you want to pay for it now?”

  3. Link to the Shorty awards, Jez?

    @ Errol and Manda – Link to where I can check out the game? I’ve never heard of it, but it sounds awesome!

  4. Nope, not a twittiot. And okay, I’ll have to good search it later. Trying to write. My WC average for the month is pitiful.

  5. Um, so I just noticed that in the “Debs and Errol universe” on the side, dating is right next to Debs, and Debs Art lacks punctuation.

    • Debs Art needs an apostrophe only if you are saying it’s Debs’ art. However if you think of Debs as a brand name or label, as we were, then it is correct as is. Debs Art belongs to us all! πŸ™‚

  6. That game looks really interesting. I’m sad it isn’t going to come out on the DS in English as I have no PS3. πŸ™

      • Well, “YOU GOT YOUR COPY!” may be premature. It’s at the “a shipping label has been created by someone, but the package isn’t in our system yet,” point. Which means that it should ship tomorrow or maybe Monday. Then it’ll spend an indefinite amount of time in transit and at customs and all that jazz. And because they chose to ship via UPS, it’s probably going to cost me another $50 or so in brokerage fees when it arrives. :/

  7. I like sour cream and onion chips, especially with sour cream and onion dip. When you have both together it is exponentially more awesome than either by itself.
