I have to say that while much of it remains pretty generic, game easily has my favorite soundtrack of the Arland trilogy.  I mean you've got stuff like this and this.  Although the real stand-outs seem to be limited to special scenes, sadly.  Like the fantastic opening, this wonderful little piece, and this.

For once the soundtrack CD that came with my limited edition is actually getting some seriously playtime.

Er...you're going to watch the ending first?

No...I just meant that I'm gonna wait and hear what people say about the ending before I dive into it. Obviously I'm not gonna watch the ending first. That would just be silly.

Well, I don't get that.  Especially in this case.  It's a prequel so we already have a pretty good idea how it's going to end.

this console generation sucks and is in fact inferior to the previous gen.

You and every other cynical gamer.

Well, I do feel it's worse outside of AAA western games, more often than not I'm liking them more this generation than I did last.

Seriously?  It's the "AAA western games" that I'm completely sick of.  Sure they're pretty and polished, but for the most part they all play exactly the same and rely on the same damn tropes.  There's no variety, no artistry.  It's the hollywoodification of gaming.

In fact, thinking back to the 90s there really wasn't such a thing as a "AAA" game.  There were just games.  Some were good, some were bad, but generally speaking they all had their own identities.  The technology didn't exist to distract people with fancy explosions so you actually had to use your imagination sometimes.

Sometimes I feel like gaming peaked around 2000 and it's all been downhill since.

Have you tried Fate/Zero, Klyde?  It's seriously good.  Second season has been even better than the first.

I've never traded anything in and I doubt I ever will.  And unlike Mesh I don't feel the tiniest bit guilty about it.  Actually I don't even understand why anyone would feel guilty about that.  Denying others the opportunity to play it?  Unless it's something rare and out of print (in which case I really don't want to trade it in anyway because I'll want it myself...) then why don't people just buy new games?

Now this is dedication

That's awesome.  There's actually a subreddit now with the save game file so other people can try to break the stalemate.  If I still had a copy of Civ2 somewhere I would give it a go...

Shit, maybe I should skip Persona 4 

No.

If you hate lines and crowds then don't go to PAX...

FFXII has a pretty large variety of locals, you just start in the desert.  And some of them are totally optional so you'll never see them unless you're exploring or doing sidequests.

Honestly, FFXII is probably my second favorite numbered FF game.

Oh, that Fan Expo in Toronto.  It's humid indoors; the people make the heat, and the sweat makes the air...moist.

What, you don't have AC?  I've been to a lot of conventions, big and small, many of which are in the summer.  The heat inside is rarely a problem...

OK, I'll talk about the current season:

Fate/Zero: Continues to be awesome.

Nyarko-san: Quite funny, if you like crazy over-the-top stuff.  Lot's of references to the Call of Cthulhu pen-and-paper games too.

Dusk Maiden of Amnesia: Meh.  OK, but the manga is better.

Bodacious Space Pirates: This show is almost done and I still can't figure it out.  It's a weird mix of serious space opera-ish stuff with things that are just stupid.  Who wears miniskirts in zero-G?

Kids on the Slope: I'm only watching this because of Shinichirō Watanabe and Yoko Kanno.  The music is decent, but most of the show is boring melodrama.  Can't recommend it...

Hyouka: Great animation...yeah, great animation.

Kore wa Zombie desu ka S2: What is this crap?  The first season was nonstop ridiculousness, but S2 doesn't even come close to the same level.  They just keep repeating the same jokes, and they're not even very good jokes.

Sket Dance: The only long-running series I still watch.  Er...it continues to be Sket Dance.  Funny, but not very serious.
2173  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Getting psyched for Gungnir on: June 11, 2012, 07:14:05 PM
Do the battles take that much longer than Yggdra Union or something?  That didn't have mid-battle saving either but it never bothered me...

Edit: The Classic Game Room guy loved it, though I don't know if that means much since he seems to like everything.
2174  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Agni's Philosophy [Next-Gen Final Fantasy Tech Demo] on: June 11, 2012, 05:28:58 PM
Or maybe they just realized that this would be a quick and easy port that took barely any resources and a lot of people in Japan have PSPs.  Again, it's probably not even coming out here...

I don't see why this is worth complaining about.  I seriously doubt it's having any effect on bigger projects.

And speaking of remakes abroad....http://www.siliconera.com/2012/06/10/final-fantasy-iii-job-changes-from-ds-to-psp/

Thanks Squeenix. That'll surely get me to rebuy the game at full price. I suppose it'll be too much to ask for the rest of the Famicom version this time around, eh? Or am I supposed to take this to mean that you guys are too busy remaking V & VI for the 3DS/Vita to even bother with a retarded romhack bonus dungeon or a lackluster bonus job? lololol

I can't figure out exactly what you're bitching about...you don't have to buy it (in fact it's probably not even going to come out here given the state of the PSP market).  And I, II, and IV are already on the PSP so why not...
