Hey, if it was an innocent mistake, then no harm done. Well, I mean... I'm kinda bummed, but I certainly can't hold it against you. Haha. :)

It was an ending spoiler for ToX2. The first game isn't even out here and it was labeled as "RPGFan spoilerz for newz," so I thought it was a joke. I'm at fault for reading it, but I wanted to spare others from accidentally looking at it too.

Wow. I can't believe I just read that spoiler. I misinterpreted it as you making some kind of joke based on my headline.

Even under a spoiler tag, why would you post that? :(

I'm glad to see all of the Atelier love in this thread. It seems like you guys feel similarly to the way I do-- I scored them accordingly in my reviews. :) I haven't been able to play Totori Plus, but I hear it's so similar to the original that I'm not terribly interested in playing through it again from scratch. (Especially with that lower frame rate...)

Ambition without the basic skills to back it up is just empty boasting.

Indeed. I think most people found the art and the concept of the game to be at least interesting, but considering how marvellously bad the whole thing seems to have come together, I don't see the point in supporting it solely for the sake of novelty. Maybe someone else will make a more successful attempt at a later date, or perhaps the 2D animation aspect is just not something that realistically can be well utilized in a game of this type of scale.

And while people enjoy bickering over the exact numerical scores of various games, the content of the giant wall of text accompanying them is more important at the end of the day. People mentioned some of the negative mainstream reviews of games like atelier meruru, but I still think you could discern even from those whether it was a game you could enjoy, even if the reviewer obviously did not. Similarly, I have picked up and enjoyed games on the basis of fairly "negative" reviews on this site (such as popolocrois, fragile dreams and alpha protocol). The reviews here tend to go into such detail that it is quite easy to follow the line of reasoning and evaluate whether you would agree with the conclusions based on what you personally value in a game.

I definitely do appreciate the effort put into the reviews. I can't imagine it being particularly fun to be forced to slog through some the worst stuff that comes out here (time and eternity being a prime example). RPGs tend to be quite lengthy, so I appreciate you guys suffering through it so we don't have to. I imagine it must be quite tempting to simply stop playing the games.


I loved Atelier Meruru (gave it a 92%!) but hated Time & Eternity, if that's any indication of how bad it is. Also, Fragile Dreams is awesome. Represent!

Yes. I agree with this. There are tracks that I'd like to keep listening to only to find out they've been cut short.

I'll +1 the more of the track we can listen to, the better it is!

Keep it up guys, you're doing fantastic work. To be honest, next to the cult of mac podcast, this is the one i look forward to the most.

These words please me greatly. GREATLY.

So, we decided not to include any final boss themes in this episode, just because those deserve an episode of their own (at least). I had a blast picking my tracks, and I think you guys are gonna enjoy this for sure. A few of my selections are really close to your suggestions, Holykael1 and Monsoon. :D
38  Media / RPGFan Music Discussion / Re: RPGFan Music Podcast (Rhythm Encounter) Thread on: May 29, 2013, 09:44:35 PM
I am quite familiar with the BoF series and the Ys series, so I'd be more than happy to spearhead both of those podcasts. :D

Echoing Stephen's sentiment about appreciating your feedback. You guys rock.

You have earned yourself a shout-out. :D Thank you so much for listening and giving your feedback! It really brightens my day every time I hear that someone enjoyed the show.

Say hello to Episode 5 - Ormond Alliance.

We were really glad to get Casey back on the show. What are your favorite tracks from the Ivalice games?

(I'm trying to stoke the fires of discussion, okay!?)

Episode 4 is live.

"Phantasy Stars Universe, it will shine onnnnnnn~"

Yeah, that boss music is teh hotness.

OH FUCK YES. Just got around to watching the clips. I LOVE the dark, 90s feel of that boss track.
43  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Should I replay FFX or wait for the remake? on: March 27, 2013, 03:07:03 PM
I'd wait. It may not be "full" remake, but they did completely redo the character models and all of the textures. The difference is staggering if you look at them side-by-side. There's also the International Sphere Grid and the Dark Aeon fights to look forward to. :)

Since we're now three episodes strong, Stephen and I figured it was time to make a thread for Rhythm Encounter. Feel free to discuss our latest topics here, give us suggestions/feedback, share your fond (or not-so-fond) memories, or whatever you like!

I tried to turn this around. I really did.
