The first Iris has the best music in the series, in my opinion, mostly due to "Eternal Eyes" and how Iris started the use of the subtle background vocals they used for the next ~5 games.  Totori's music shares its wispiness, so they somewhat thematically have the same sound. This is a very, very good thing. Much of the earlier games are more upbeat.  Totori also had that really brilliant battle theme "Terminus" based off of Pilgrimage that is quite possibly my favorite of their more emotional battle themes.  I did find Dia to be rather boring, not bad, just not memorable.

My favorite battle theme from GUST, non Ar tonelico,  is Carmine.  It reminds me a bit of something from Sound Team JDK.

On the subject of Meruru, I played it a few months ago.
Code:
Sometimes I wonder what the hell GUST is thinking.  I swear they absolutely ruined Rorona. Poor Sterk.

A DQX beta giveaway might not be so bad.  It would definitely tick a few people off, but it's worthy of an announcement.  Maybe not a tease like this, though.

Spencer's good on his word.  He's leaked and announced SE titles (and DLC) accurately before. More than SE, just in general.  I think his claim that it might be "surprising" is what's doubtful.  

I think many people will be disappointed; they're probably thinking it's a big title.  I see a lot of Type-0 Vita being thrown around, for example.  But that wouldn't be very surprising now, would it?  I'd curb my expectations.

I'd love to be proven wrong, of course.

New DLC screens.

I love the White Mage costume.

I feel it's a great song, but Kokia's performance is rather lackluster.  She needs to enunciate more or she shouldn't be singing in English.

It's not nearly as Souls-like as I was hoping.  It's not even particularly MonHun like, not really.  I'm not sure what I think of it, after the demo.  I don't really think it gives off a clear impression of what the final game is like beyond showing off the types of attacks you have access to. I encountered quite a few graphical errors and some minor FPS drops, which doesn't bode well for its performance. You can't even play as a mage.

At the very least, I hope I don't have to rely on multiple followers constantly.

I spent far too much time with the Character creator for my own good, though.  They have a nice selection of hairstyles and overall body choices.  If I had one complaint, I would have liked to have clearer voice samples.

Overall, despite my rant, I think I'll enjoy it.  I just don't think it's 10/10, or even 9/10 material simply from the technical issues.

Yeah, I have to admit, this port/remake nonsense is getting a bit old. I'm more interested in new SMT games.  The last was, ah, Devil Survivor 2, which came out in Japan in mid-2011.  So I'd expect an announcement soon-ish of something, probably for a release next year.  Admittedly, I'd rather have a new mainline game than Persona 5, though.

Demon's Souls was a cited source, too.

I actually think it feels a bit clunkier than Demon's Souls, which does the slow, cautious, and precise well.  This feels like it attempted slow and precise, but didn't quite go all the way. It's stuck somewhere in an uncomfortable middle ground.

Code:
Caius sees Yeul in the same way Noel sees Serah, who becomes the next cursed seeress.  The Paradox ending with Noel's
battle explains this.  You may not know Yeul, but you do know Serah. Now imagine Serah sharing that same fate and how Noel
would react to it.  He would eventually get angry, break down, possibly become desperate or lose himself.

Also, the line about the flowers and singing was his best line in the game.

The costumes are actually very well done.  There's a lot of detail in them, and they made an effort to prevent clipping for the most part. For the cost, they're much better than the Tales costumes.

Thirded.  New Londo my first time through was more tense for me than most survival horror games released in the last five years.  It's one of those areas that I wish I could erase from my memory and replay again from scratch.

I'd say Tomb of the Giants, too, but I felt that was more of a throwback to first-person dungeon crawlers than actually trying to keep you tense and on edge, though it certainly did both of the above.

I like the one where they attack Hubert for his incompetent Healing skills.

Future Arc has the best skits.  Try to get them all.
869  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Graces F on: April 20, 2012, 12:31:50 AM
That way is so boring.  I got my Future Arc under 60 seconds trophy as the last one before Platinum, so I waited until after I had cleared Zhonecage on Chaos mode.

It was an overkill, but a good finale, I suppose.  You could do it on Easy mode long before that.  I didn't use Malik, but instead controlled Richard and used him as my caster. He just spammed Shade Imperial over and over again and probably took off more than half of the boss HP by himself.

The key to doing it really fast is Hourglass items.

It has nothing to do with not being badass guy.  It has everything to do with telling me absolutely nothing about the games inside the package, or even catching my attention.  It just doesn't do its job as a cover.
