Good news for once: tonight the personal issues should be resolved, mostly. I won't be at 100% speed but I do expect the small update (it will look bigger thanks to me posting in code tags as before) out soon after this. In the meantime, a couple of discussions about how I'm handling a couple of things in the last lookover for a good while (no, really, I've got to put this down for 600 AD). These are very small and hairy situations, but they are judgement calls that I realize some will not like. I'd like to make an optional patch but it's just too much for too little.
1) No Woolsey made puns in the Future, Amplifier stays. I'd like to point out that CT does have punny names, but it's played the Future (mostly) in a more serious tone with these things. Plus, given what's revealed in the sidequests about the robots' origin I do not think their creators would be giving them humorous names.
2) Soda guzzling: Trust me, I've taken concerns about this one pretty seriously. I've let it stand before, and after looking at it again I'm standing firm on that. This is mostly because Woolsey's text is actually more consistent with the game than original text. Original just talks of it as drinking, which while I do realize can imply as an alcohol reference... well, let me line out just what I'm thinking in detail:
1. Unlike the game with Ayla there isn't anything about anyone getting drunk, or drinking anyone under the table. It's pretty ambiguous in comparison, and though you can argue it's the difference between time periods Marle doesn't even mention the alcohol. This leads me to believe that there is another substance involved, because you just downed most of a six pack and no one's bringing it up. Yeah I know, this is just a minigame, but once again I'm comparing this with Ayla's similar game. In consistency, the localization wins out.
2. I know of two types of drinking game versions: those with alcohol and those with water, soda, etc.. Under the latter, Woolsey actually isn't wrong. This only really ends up being relevant with the lighter touch I've been giving some Woolseyisms (Slash for example), combined with how I handled the Moonlight Parade alcohol reference (kept the current line, changed the product).
As you can see, I've given this probably more thought than I'd like to admit. But there you have it. If you're not okay with these, it's pretty easy to shift them over and I am perfectly okay with that!
