Yeah, they totally went for quantity over quality, and the occasional change of pace tended to be annoying rather than refreshing, IIRC, though I forget why.

EDIT: Goddamnit, now I want to play an SRPG, especially after seeing the trailer for Summon Night 5....now the question is: Do I play Fire Emblem and start Eliwood's path, or do I put in some effort and try out one of the many SRPGs that are sitting in my room untouched, because there's only 5 SRPGs that aren't Super Robot Taisen that I've ever actually touched...

The only times FFTA changed up its mission structure, was for the Crystal Bosses (and maybe the extra bonus missions that you unlock after completing all of the standard 300), and those guys were still largely kill em all but with a gimmick that you couldn't just safely ignore. That game was the game and probably the single worst SRPG I've ever played.


As for your SRPG question, which SRPGs to you have access to?

I already made up a handy list of ones I was interested in playing...and then I put it in a randomizer and Growlanser II came out on top. So I'll make this easy: Should I play Fire Emblem (GBA) or Growlanser II?

We should totally play Growlanser II together. ;)

With all this radio silence, I suspect that no one amongst our intrepid podcasting crew survived Operation Mi'hen.

Finished watching Steins;Gate.

Very entertaining. I always enjoy LOVE when Time/Time Traveling is in a show/game. I would like for them to do a Sequel to this show where they follow the "first" Okabe and his journey through his dystopia. I suppose what I mean is not so much "first," rather, the line that is furthest ahead of everyone else.
Excellent show. Just finished a rewatch of it myself. The way they handled the Green Oompa still bugs me though. >.>

Funny you should mention a sequel though. They announced earlier this year that they are going to be doing a game and anime called Steins;Gate 0 which focuses on Beta Line Okabe after he fails to Christina.

Ah! I knew there was going to be a game, but I didn't know it was going to follow Beta Line Okabe. I'll play it~!

Also, what about the Green Oompa thing bugs you? I'm assuming we are talking about the miniature toy one that Mayuri gets in that episode? DID I MISS SOMETHING???

More Splatoooooooooooon. I'll probably get bored of this when i reach Level 20 (which is soon).

Not sure what to play next...might jump right into Growlanser II. ;)

Had to stop here for now. I had an audience for part of this play session - my 3 year old. He was cheering me on in all of the battles to which he was a witness. 'Tis so very awesome. =)

~ So far, I'm really into the whole using psynergy to solve dungeon puzzles thing. Me likey.
~The whole Djinni (who look suspiciously like generic Pokemon) aspect at least enables a little bit of character customization.

Games are always better with an audience! ;)

Also, look forward to collection more Djinni, as it's going to open up some cool stuff later on. Do your best to catch 'em all find them! ;)

Pics or it didn't happen.

Well since you asked...

Edit: Oh god, I was doing just fine when I left the oral surgeon but now they painkillers they gave me there are starting to wear off.  It hurts, it hurts!!

What up dental implant buddy!

I hope you're feeling better today, keep taking your motrin or whatever they gave you and don't fuck around with your stitches.  From my experience, I healed surprisingly fast.

Honestly I'm feeling pretty fine.  I think getting wisdom teeth removed was much worse...

I was awake during mine. It was interesting. My sister got me a stuffed Penguin that day too.

The Devil Is a Part-Timer is also a very entertaining show.

Nah. I'm playing right now and probably will for some time. ;)
14  Media / RPGFan Music Discussion / Re: When a game ruins good music on: June 09, 2015, 11:56:45 PM
Have you ever listened to any music from a game and loved it but when you finally played the game it came went back to listen to the music but lost the "spark" that made you love the music in the first place?

Kinda?

Most music from the Final Fantasy series from FFVI - FFX I heard the music first and adored the soundtrack falls into that. I Played the games, Loved the music even more, but did not have that same exact 'wow' factor it happened when I first heard it. Why? Because I already heard it many times outside the game first and a great deal within the game. What had happened was that the music became something I had to be in the mood for. More or less, I was on break from those soundtracks after beating the game/hearing them so many times. FFVI - FFX are the only group of games where I had that happened, where I had to take an extended break from. Even my body tells me that now is not the right time to re-listen to those soundtracks. So I suppose that's the worst it's ever gotten--it turning into mood music.

However, there are instances where I really liked the music from games such as the Grandia Series, the Wild Arms Series, Space Channel 5, and so on. After those games, that 'spark' either remained the same, or elevated to complete aural adoration. I mean, I wrote a paper on Grandia's soundtrack! And look at that, the thread where I asked a question about it for my paper is still there: ADX and Grandia

*shoutout to Wild Armor, who's a Grandia superfan who knows these OSTs backwards and forwards.

You bet I do! You can spread that coverage also to most things by Iwadare, Naruke, and music from Eternal Sonata. ;)

I've had the case where a game's music was BETTER than the actual game for me. This is how I feel about Penny Arcade 4, Glory of Heracles, and a whole host of other games. So often I'll be in love with the music and then be totally underwhelmed by the game, even when I really want to love it.

In the case of Radiant Historia, I really liked the music, then the game made me absolutely adore it.

Glory of Heracles's soundtrack is superduper, as well as Sands of Destruction's ost. ;)

Last stage in 100% Orange Juice is bullshit. Opponent gets 6 HP and +2 ATK and seems to always roll a 5 or 6 in battles.

Yep! Still haven't beaten it yet. That's why they have a no-final boss character option in multiplayer. ;)
