A Sudden Urge To Sing!
Gust & Koei Tecmo have recently been known for pushing out the brilliant yet marmite games Atelier, here they are with a more JRPG focused game for fans of the criminally underrated RPG series Ar Tonelico.
Acting as a prequel to the series to welcome newcomers as well as fans how will Ar NoSurge fare in a market full of JRPG goodness? Number 1 hit or 1 time wonder?
Proteus knew all things—past, present, and future—but disliked divulging what he knew.
When I search the wonderful internet for unusal titles to review I always stumble upon a discussion about one particular game. Usually discussions on the internet are like a school yard fight - pointless and usually end up with one party calling the other names; well in the modern age it usally is a meme expression that parties current mood. Anyway, I am straying away from my original point - the discussions for the game in question do not end up like this though. They usally end up with the two questions; What is the point of this? What am I doing? Two very simple question but it is amazing how many different responses you get. The game is called Proteus.

Seems a strange game to see the light of day over here but i'm all for more games, is it worth the attention it's been getting or is it all just Bare faced lies?....
