It’s time to put an old tradition to rest.
After spending a lot of time working intimately with the arte names, I have come to realize something. And that is that Hometek’s arte naming system is just too full of problems and is COMPLETELY unworkable. I have put a LOT of thought into this, I mean like, almost two hours worth… And I say, it’s time to scrap the whole thing. No more Demon Fang. No more Tiger Blade. From here on out, it’s nothing but romaji and Japanese English arte names, the way Japan intended for it to be.
I realize a small minority of you may be somewhat against this change, but it’s for the best. “Majinken” (that’s Demon God Sword in English) sounds way cooler than Demon Fang, after all. And I dunno what “Gels” are, but I sure do know what a “Gummi” (Bear) is… and they’re awesome. So yeah, Japanese will ALWAYS sound cooler than English. That’s a proven fact, proven by 9 out of 10 Japanologists. So unfortunately for the few of you that like Demon Fang and the other Localized arte names, too bad, it’s gone, and it’s never coming back, FOREVER.
I guess I ought to show you some other screenshots while I’m at it. I’m practically running out of sections of the menu I haven’t already shown yet. Well, here’s the Soma Evolve menu:
Man, those things look really convenient. I’d love to have, say, a backpack Soma that forms a Segway. Or a T-shirt Soma that forms the keys to my car, just so I can be sure I’ll never lock myself out (unless I leave my Soma in my car, and also my keys… then I’m just stupid).
And here’s the Customize menu:
Nothing special to note here.
I guess there is one other thing I should mention… I’ve gotten several requests to add a progress bar. Done and done. If you glance over to the right side of the page, you should see a spiffy progress bar. Hope that helps.
Well, that’s all for now. Until next time, guys!
