Dancing Mad will always be my personal favorite from Nobuo's Final Fantasy works. Diverse in style as well as exciting. Jenova's orchestral arrangement was really interesting, I don't think I would have gone down the route they did, but the piece was good. Man with the Machine gun was great, but I felt that it should have ended with a stronger climax than a sigh. Also, speed up at around 0:56? Rest of the piece was fine. I'm leaving the rest of the album to listen for another time, I'm sure themes like Terra, Prelude, and Zanarkand we'll still give me the same feelings the original gave me.

Going to start Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure. It's the original one that came with the Soundtrack. I'll be back wit stories and humming tunes.

I use bargain bin headphones: Sennheiser HD201

A decent starting headphones, but look elsewhere rather quickly if you want a better experience.

Also why is the female trainer for white/black look like she murdered Klonoa and made pants out of him?

That's a good thing! Klonoa was cool! :P

WOW, I thought I was the only that felt that too.

But yeah, I was being a bit facetious with the snowman thing. Haha. I feel like the leaf-starter is going to evolve into some majestic, pompous Pokemon in the end. Well, other than bantering starters, because that's all they are going to get, I'll let you know which I'll start with: The Pompous Pokemon.

You guys are cah-razy ;)

On a more relevant note, a preorder of the game get's you a game cell? I have no idea what this is but it's not the first time I've seen this as a preorder bonus, could someone school me on Game cells?

Guess nobody has much to say after the pictures of starters were released. They look pretty good, though it's pretty well-known that they spend a lot of care in designing the starter Pokemon especially.

I dunno, I mean now you can play as a snooty lizard that has cyndaquil's head, a piggy, and a snowman. When was the last time you played as a snowman?

I didn't even know that a RPGfan Radio even existed.

The project that Ramza speaks of sounds really cool, looking forward to that (and not using Real Player :D)

I plan on preordering it later this month. Looks like it'll be a lot of fun. I wonder if they will relate anything back to the two other Luminous Arc games. Wait a sec... wasn't this the same game that had to be recalled due to a bug?

It's when reviews, say, tell you to check out an RPG to tide you over for the next Final Fantasy even when it's a year or more away that are aggravating.

Wild Arms reviews used to be like that, particularly in the PlayStation era.  "If you want a good RPG to tide you over until Final Fantasy VII, then Wild Arms is your best bet."  Thing is, I've known people who loved Wild Arms, traded up for FF7, hated FF7, and then traded it back for another copy of Wild Arms. 

Speaking of Old Reviews: Wild Arms - GAME OF THE MONTH
Game Fan Review

If you're not familiar with the letters at the bottom:

(C)ontrol

(M)usic
(O)riginality

Note: Lol, shame of the month = Macross VFX

Eh... there are not absolutes or rules for this sort of thing. Sorry to be a killjoy, but I think it's sort of a silly question. Everyone will have their own perspective on which is more relevant, most likely biased toward their area of interest. If this is a statistical gathering class, then maybe this question has some merit, but I question the relevance of something like this for, for instance, a psychology or philosophy class. It's a question that really can't be broken down or really examined in any objective way.

You could say that I'm also looking for numbers. how about you're opinion then Prime?

when there is a sudden loud noise, a shriek or crashing off camera is enough to make me jump for the power button.

It's what I can't see but can hear that freaks me out the most.

I had a friend during middle school that said he would shut the game off if he ran out of ammo when he played resident evil.

But yeah, absence of music and focus of room ambiance and spacial noise is enough to send people off the deep end. I find it very deafening if a game has no music playing, creating a strong tension to when it will occur. A game I chose to talk about, and it might be obscure to others, is Trilby's Notes. About a third of the game has no music playing, just the patter of Trilby's feet. What freaked me out was when you would walk in and out of a room, there was a chance that you would be transported to the dark version, a "normal" hotel is the location of this game, of the hotel where there's a drone of whispers and murmurs played until you make it back to the Light World Hotel. There would be some rattling of percussion and some small phrases of music played by instruments that were pitch-bended. Pretty creepy stuff.
868  The Rest / General Discussions / Music and Sound VS Visual in Horror/Suspense games. on: April 24, 2010, 09:40:25 PM
I'm currently working on a paper for a class regarding Horror games and was curious if anyone would be able to tell me about their experience while playing any horror game. The primary focus for my paper is whether or not Music and Sound, or absence of, is the driving force in creating suspense and fear in a game against the visuals.

In other words: Music/Sounds (Absence of both) VS Visual content, which do you find most important?

I wasn't sure whether or not to place this topic here, hopefully this is the right place.

I have no clue which Exile right now, I just remembered the name, that was all. I still have the old IBM 95 computer in my basement that still works and has the game. I'll check it when I get a chance. I just remember having a lot of fun.
