I recently attended E3 2012, where I had the privilege of sitting in a large indoor stadium and watching as a pleading man had his face blown off, something my fellow journalists and media responded to with raucous cheering. Later, as God of War's Kratos worked tirelessly to filling the attractive projector screen with an absurd splattering of blood, I picked up my 3DS and spent the rest of the conference banging through some Tales of the Abyss 3D. Point is, mainstream gaming has reached a level of violent absurdity, where the plucky hero of Uncharted can somehow continue cracking jokes even after murdering a good hundred people within the space of the past hour. If that's what you think games are supposed to be about, go at it, though I personally like to think we can make a decent video game that doesn't involve murdering everybody. Now to be fair, NIS America's Atelier Meruru isn't exactly the shining example of gaming excellence that the industry should be striving towards. But after enduring a weeklong celebration of blood and gore, I've found the game's cheery focus on fluffy pink goodtimes to be surprisingly refreshing.
The Arland trilogy of Japanese anime-flavored role-playing games ends with a whimper in Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland. This last addition to the family bogs down the formula with a number of extras that make the game more annoying than entertaining. While the addictive alchemy formulas that sit at the heart of the gameplay have been held over for a repeat performance, everything else has been hit hard by an obnoxious spoiled brat of a title character, a repetitive plot loaded with never-ending tedious dialogue, and so many creepy moments with the short-skirted kiddie characters that you feel like you're committing a crime just looking at the TV screen. Like the first two games in the franchise, Atelier Meruru is set in the fantasy kingdom of Arland. The scene shifts to the rustic backwater of Arls, and the new heroine is Princess Meruru, who chooses to become an alchemist simply because she's bored and wants to irritate her old man. Meruru is an insipid, self-absorbed kid, about as far from a sympathetic title character as you could roam, complete with a blackboard fingernails screech of a voice and a giggle that could cut glass.
