I'm looking forward to a soundtrack package release with this game. I'm positive I'm going to love this game's soundtrack as I did the first one.

I guess I'll never get those brass knuckles I always wanted.

I know what you mean, your decisions in that game could change the outcome on things. I remember doing things out of order and really messing things up for that game's world.

you mean the part where Schala gives this TOTALLY weird-ass speech about "spermatazoa" implanting the egg that is the planet? Was it just the English translation, or was that whole monologue just a strange thing to read?

Granted, other than the writing, it is quite a thing to behold.

That writing was just weird, God knows what was happening in the translation part of that speech. I was like 13 when I read that, I didn't understand two licks of it except that I just beat an awesome game with marvelous music.

Actually the part where it sent a good chill down my spine, like what I wrote in the blog, is the timpani roll and the SPOILER SPOILER at 1:25-1:28. I just find the choreograph of this song to the cutscene magical. I'm a huge fan of theatrical presentation in music and games. This game totally topped the charts when I saw that.

I wouldn't call it sad emotional, but emotional none-the-less.

Chrono Cross
When you release Schala from the Time Devourer. That cut scene and music just presented itself just right and made my heart skip a beat. That was true cinematic experience for me back when I was 13.

I actually wrote a post about it on my blog. I wrote this back in Novemember, so it looks like I have a past post that can answer this thread even more thoroughly. Link: Emotional Game Music. Please don't click it if you don't want minor spoilers.

Really? That goblin scene didn't happen the first time I played it, but every time after that. I always ended up losing her when I went to Gaia's Navel because she was being all pissy.

Take a page from ToadyOne and live by the mantra "organization is everything." No matter what else you do, keep the project organized, maintanable, and have a good idea what you're going for. Feature creep kills stuff fast.

Feature creep? I don't believe I follow. Do you mean when someone shows massive amounts of their game's progress through screenshots and day to day updates making it sound like you're reading the game rather than playing it? If not that, someone who puts too much in a game that makes the game longer than it should be?

So far I'm digging it.  I'm not far in (I just finished the prologue).  The battle between Eshe and those two walking towers was pretty dynamic; I liked how I had to use the wall lasers to my advantage to damage those nefarious nasties.  The first puzzle felt a little random, but I figured it out.  I am a fan of puzzle dungeons as long as the hint is useful and the control isn't twiddly. 

My favorite aspect has to be the music.  The cinematic cutscenes are pretty well crafted as well.  I've never seen anything like that in an RPG Maker game. 

Agreed, the music and cut scenes blended well together. I'm really enjoying the music of the game, kudos to the composer! I finished the prologue as well and think that it's doing pretty good right now. I was completely baffled for the first 2 minutes when I was presented the first puzzle, but caught on quickly when I saw the arrows pointing at the door :P.

The battle between those two towers were pretty fun and I felt kind of silly when I noticed that I wasn't doing any damage. I noticed the room extended and there were a series of laser ball traps. Really fun.

I liked how the credits were appearing at the bottom right hand corner of the screen as the prologue progressed. It was pretty neat and cool to see while moving towards the goal in the beginning.

Ah! Did you use that face maker program/site to create your character faces? They remind me of that program that second I saw the first face. I liked the menu as well, it kind of reminded me of Chrono Trigger's Menu.

Get her Thousand Arms. She'll love the arrogance & stupidity of the main character.

Final Fantasy Legend 2, if I haven't already said so.

That was a great game! I completely forgot about it, but great choice.
1318  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Star Ocean: The Last Hope news.(56k Warning) on: January 06, 2009, 06:04:49 PM
Let's just hope that this game is... oh, I dunno.



Thirded(?). I loved The Third one, but it began to drag on towards the end for me.

I wonder what will be playing at the funeral.

I agree completely with the music topic, I have seen so many bands jump on stage that are completely garbage and expect praise. I'm on break booking shows because the venue I booked closed down, but you would get that kind of garbage every day. I've seen better guitar playing on a Walmart sold Washburn Lyon electric guitar than what some of these guitarists would show me with a more advance/expensive guitar (I'm guitar ignorant, but I know when something is good and bad).

But now I'm drifting off topic (Haha).

I've played my share of RPG derived from RPG makers and can't say that I saw much love put into some of the projects. You know when someone is rushing a project just to finish it out of frustration. It's really hard to like a game like that, and yes it hurts even more when it comes from an RPG maker. It's good to think that it's not the RPG maker's fault, but the individual that uses it. I really would like it if those kind of individuals didn't touch it, but then where would enterbrain get their profits from then (Haha)?

I promise that won't be the case here, heck I even would ask if you could play the game once I finish it MeshGearFox. I don't rush things, I'm still new to the program and not going to dish out a bad plate of meal to anyone. But with that being said, expect it in the later future. I'm a partial perfectionist and don't release anything that I wouldn't play myself... and I'm pretty darn hard on myself.

And I accept all criticism! I'm quite humble and love hearing what needs to be changed or fixed.
