Should I be scared?
The picture that Dice posted... yeah, that's scary. :(

What are you talking about? That's the main hero. Enjoy the game!

I read the reviews to decide what to buy. I am odd in that I am legally deaf and actually enjoy music, and for some reason, many video game soundtracks seem to be "just right" for my ears to handle. I am unable to really sample game music online and such since I need to be able to download it onto my configurated iPod to hear it properly, so I end up buying the CD, burning it and loading it onto the iPod.

So no test-listens... gotta decide what is worthy of risking my $$$ on.

Aurian,

If you don't mind, could you open up to us more what you mean about being legally deaf but still hearing the music? And how game music is more suited for your listening than other kinds of music? I'd really like to hear more about this.

Ditto. By legally, would you mean that you have relatively partial hearing and you're iPod is configured with some sort of amplifier? Very curious...

So, you can chop a bullet?

as a pretty big proponent of music reviewing in general, what I look for in reading another person's review is a perspective on the music that I could not have gleaned naturally on my own. Some music reviews get into the technical terms, others speak very metaphorically of the music's "soul," still others will compare this or that song to other artists' works or specific genres of music. And in almost any review, there is always the "informative" bit (information about the composer, artist, source material, etc). In all of these things, I may find an opinion that surprises me, and a way to approach the music as I listen.

In short, music reviews help me get more mileage out of the music. I learn new things and learn how to listen, just a little better. :)

Reading this as a musician and future Music Librarian; this post greatly uplifts my spirits...thanks.

Out of curiosity, I'd like to know the reason(s) why you would read a Game/Anime soundtrack review.

For myself, I enjoy reading the opinions of others in regards to what they perceive as "good" and/or "bad" music to them. There are times when the reviewer specifies that their comments is of their own personal reflection(s) on a soundtrack, but at times you'll find a reviewer who drops the absolute,"The isn't Music" line (hardly is it ever direct/verbatim said; rather it is stated in a particular phrase of dissatisfaction or ambiguity).

Though, regardless of whatever review I read, I hardly ever allow it to determine my purchase. What I like, is what like, and no words from another reviewer can deter me otherwise.

A note: Worry not rpgfan ost reviewers, I enjoy your reviews very much. ;)

When I was like, three, we got my dad a NES for Christmas. Some time after that I borrowed a bunch of my cousin's NES games.

Then he went to jail and I got to keep them ^_^

This without the jail time. First game to buy outside the mario bros/duck hunt was Legend of Zelda 1 + 2 at the same time. WIN
938  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Do you keep your games or trade after finishing them? on: February 01, 2012, 05:08:08 PM
I sell em. I'm not concerned with product value or attachment. While I do enjoy playing video games, they hold little value outside of their entertainment medium other than the story and music within. If I really liked a soundtrack or story, I'll keep the game, but that's a blue moon occurrence. There's 3 games I own I wouldn't sell because of simply enjoying the soundtrack and don't want to throw down $60 for the ost.

But you could probably guess that I sold my video games by lurking in The Bazaar.

I usually just go with classics like son of a bitch or motherfucker when I'm angry.

I'm quite fond of dastardly fellow

While I have no objections to the forumites around here I do have to state most of y'all's mindsets are things I'll never comprehend. :-\
Trolling could be afoot.......but not likely :P.

The only visual novel that I have played for about 5 hours and stopped was Fate/stay night. The worst part....I didn't get that far at all! But it was fun nonetheless.

I may give this one a go once the DDL appears, but that comes after shutting the adult content off.

Every dating sim needs an option to deck whoever you're talking to at any given moment. I've had enough of your snide insinuations.

I agree with this if the women are being too anime and shy about stupid shit.  The game can be half as long if either side manned-up for a minute and just said "I fucking like your ass" or something more eloquent.

I believe the game would last 5 minutes...actually I don't think they would even bother leaving the classroom. Plenty of desks.
942  Media / The Soundroom / Re: String quartet music sheets? (video game related) on: January 22, 2012, 10:49:19 PM
I'll see what I can do! Thank You for the help!

Yep, If there's anything else game music related for orchestral instruments, just post again in this thread or pm me and perhaps I'll be able to assist you further.

Also....for your transcription/listening pleasures: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZNWsH_RN7s

EDIT: Also, what kind of music are you looking for? Adagio? Allegro? Dolce? POLKA?!

I may take it off your hands as soon as a vendor gets back to me with their price...It's likely you'll have the cheaper buy...but the shipping is what will turn the tides of this purchase. I'll give you a definitely answer soon. :)
945  The Rest / The Bazaar / Re: Video Games, Soundtracks and Artbooks for sale on: January 21, 2012, 11:36:41 AM
Would you be willing to put Arc Rise Fantasia OST on hold for a moment? I may be greatly interested in purchasing it...
