If I had to pick one arrangement in particular that I'm smitten with, it's the Snake Eater Arrangement. They did a solid job with it and worth everyone's listen. The rest of the album is wonderful, but that arrangement...

While I have backed a number of projects I have enjoyed on Kickstarter, none have ever met their initial promises/expectations. As cool as this looks, I just don't back anything anymore; I wait for it to come out and then go on sale on Steam for $2. :P (Though, obviously, if everyone took that attitude I'd have a problem)

I'm on the same boat with this. The only exception to my hesitation is something videogame music related. I'm glad Bloodstained knocked it way out of the park, but I'll more than likely watch from the sidelines until it officially comes out. ;)

Other than that...this game looks cool and better have back-dashing. ;)

mine arrived today. I did red laser test. It's an officially pressed CD, not a burnt CD-R.

Furthermore, its plastic "new/seal" status seems legit based on ... stuff. Its adhesives on the corners were beginning to go, so it was easy to unwrap. That's a pretty good sign that this is the real deal from 1995.

ANY collector of vgm should hop on this now. Once this sellers' stock is gone. Prices will slowly rise back up to what they've been for over a decade (around $100)

Excellent news! Then I'll just keep mine in its plastic and let it grow in value. ;)

In case y'all feeling the drag, here are some images I took to hype the occasion:

Don't Judge Me!


S-pecial and Payback ;)




I thirst for more



But Estelle, who is the real you?


And let's not foget that time we took down a kid:


If you'd like to see more of my images of my playthrough, here are the links to the albums:

Also, I wanted to suggest that we eventually play through a co-op RPG. That could be really fun on the show, yeah?

Can we have a 3v3 race with Secret of Mana? :D

The only know way to play SoM with 3 people is in the same room. The way your thinking of doing it, which I won't outright say, only supports 2 players. :(

If we could though...I would totally win, just saying!

I dunno, I can stack them Magic attacks like no one's business. ;)

Where do you find these images, man? xD
Marcos has a black belt in reaction.gifs



Chapter 1 start........NOW
54  Media / Game Journals / Re: Retro Encounter Podcast Thread on: May 06, 2015, 10:22:34 PM
Yeah!  So we're playing up to the chapter 3 title card for the next episode.

I'm gonna try to clear chapter 1 tonight.  So yeah, we can do it together like some kind of weird long range sleepover xD

55  Media / Game Journals / Re: Wild Armor Growls and 2ts: Indiscriminate Justice on: May 06, 2015, 10:19:47 PM
This is on hold because of Retro Encounter. Will come back to this game during an off month. ;)
56  Media / Game Journals / Re: Retro Encounter Podcast Thread on: May 06, 2015, 10:16:39 PM
Sure thing, chef. ;)



Also, I will beginning chapter 1 later tonight. I'll try to take as many screen caps as possible. ;)

I might just play chapter 1 and that's, unless it's short. Not sure what to expect though. Everyone, JOIN ME AND MAKE THIS A TRAILS NIGHT.

Assuming time allows for it, I'll probably also join in in playing along with the podcast. Depending on how far you get by the 2nd episode, I'll take note since it's been some time since I let the game lie fallow. Really looking forward to playing it though.

Totally, and if you need to use a game guide or whatever to help speed the process, there's no shame in that either. I occasionally check on gamefaqs in regards to Bracer points, not so much story/battles/etc.. ;)

If I recommend anything, however, is take the time to talk to everyone and see how wacky things really are in this game. ;)

Howdy and welcome to the boards, Jean Of mArc! ;)

Same deal with myself--I don't get a lot of game-time now of these days, so I have to be a bit more calculated on what I do and how to approach certain games. So far, if you learn the basics right away, then the game should be fine. Glad to have you aboard the gameplay train!

= Trails really has a bad prologue.  It's really slow and pretty boring.  But its world-building and the depth of dialogue is a small price to pay; not many games afford that kind of love/time to characterization, or really, 'joking around' with its cast. =/
Fortunately after that it's over the hump and just gets progressively better...even when it is doing its "anime high school chapter".

it's funny, because like I said on the show, I find the prologue very fascinating. It's incredibly entertaining to see the life of the village progress as your character progresses through the chapter. Like, let's use these love birds for example:



Ellie & Armand
The first time you are introduced to these characters, one is literally loitering behind a house (Ellie) and the other (Armand) doting over them from a distance on a elevated walkway (creepily). Armand totally wants Ellie, but he has to work up the courage to do so. Later on after the Bracer test, you come back to find them behind the house Ellie was behind, where you find out Armand confesses/proposes to her. Guess what? She refuses to accept him because she's a romantic at heart and want's to be proposed in a more romantic setting. Armand is baffled--especially when she says he is her type!

It's not until after the events in the tower after the bracer test, when it is evening, where you find these two on the clocktower spending a happily romantic moment together because he decided to propose to her there during the setting sun. (For your amusement, I have Estelle being a total creep in my picture). ;)

Also, let's not forget little claire!



Claire
She's a little reporter and knows the deets on this OTP. She's already got that boat shipped in her mind. ;)

Also, the localization is comically entertaining. Let's not forget lines like this:



This occurs after Soft-Ball-Mustached Dad bails these two out from what could have been a baaaaaad situation. I don't, maybe it's just me, but I like observing things like this. I enjoy watching them unfold. ;) (Also, Dice, I hope by the end of this game Estelle gets her pair of Stregas Sneakers.) ;)

Tales of Destiny II (the NA version for PSX)

You probably mean Tales of Eternia.

My first, and favorite, "Tales of" game. I would play this in a second. ;)

fuck it. also wouldn't mind listening to you guys try to grind on through:

Symphony of the Night, Parasite Eve, Tales of Destiny II (the NA version for PSX), Vagrant Story

Lufia II, Super Mario RPG or Secret of Evermore.

I've never played a Parasite Eve game, so I wouldn't object to that. Also, I love this list. MOAR. ;)

I saw the convo on vgmdb the other day and ordered it then. I'll be inspecting it as well. I can smell a bootleg a mile away, so this will be fun. ;)
