Famitsu also has an interview with Yasunori Mitsuda, who is in charge of the game’s music, and Sarah Lim, who sings the “Song of Death” sung by the Valkyria.

We now have an NA release date along with deets of the SE. $70 is a bit much for a game that didn't really do what it needed to.

I would have been tempted if we got that cool Agnes figure.

As is, I don't really want the game though.  Still feeling withdrawal from the first game.

I really like Chrono Cross.  It doesn't always make sense and the wrap up is ok... but I do think it's still an excellent follow up to one of the best games.

Din! You should do an editorial on it! :D

In my gaming news: Started Undertale!  I already feel it's a little special.

Which is why SO3!Welch is best Welch.  As much as I liked her, though, I never understood why they put her in the first two remakes.  And yeah, not a fan of SO4!Welch.

Nor should anyone be a fan of hers.  Not even Laura Bailey and, actually, the talented VA cast of that game, save that garbage script and story.

Welch had some pretty fun PAs for 1/2.  Especially in the second game I was usually pretty happy finding some way to shove out Noel (I do admit I'd take on Ernest just to steal from the poor bastard).

what's the point of making eva underwear if you're not going to base it off ramiel

I wouldn't mind wearing sahaquiel inspired design on my ta-tas.

I can't wait for this to get canceled in a couple of months.

It won't. XSeed's not doing it this time, so they can't botch it and blame someone else like with the PSP game.

Isn't NISA doing it though? :P

Anyways, looks cool and I'm a sucker for that Vanillaware style.  Gameplay looks kinda fun too!  I'll keep it on my radar.

You're lucky then, it's a famous 73 year old Quebecer that died today.

Two days after losing her husband to cancer, Celine Dion loses her brother... to cancer.

I threw up a whole bunch yesterday so I look super skinny... <3

...But I'd rather be fed, happy, and not nauseous. T_T

Christmas Vacation: Perfectly describes the holidays when you have too much family over, plus it's just funny with a lot of subtle jokes on top of the bigger ones.

Scrooged: Yeah, I love it.  The atmosphere is too cool and does the modernized script some justice.

Bad Santa: I'm pretty sure Billy Bob barely had to act in this one. :P  So funny, so immoral, doesn't try too hard to be absolutely awful and it works.

Home Alone 2: Something about living it up in NYC is probably why this ranks...

I'd usually find the idea of a video game watch way too kitschy but that pretty much looks cool so I can dig it.

Yeah if it had like a character face on it or giant logo I would have been out.  But the watch looks alright even without knowing what game it's from (a woman I work with complimented it! :P ). 

Super-groupies products are actually not too terrible at making pretty fashionable geek apparel.  Not always, like this eye-patch purse inspired by Gangsta's Worick or this Evangelion underwear.  The Tales of Xillia - Milla shoes are super adorable though and definitely better than your run-of-the-mill character-on-shirt concept that you usually see.

Paulette with strategically placed mole on her breast. and adequate fighting skill.

I don't know about that. The game presents Paulette as this tough warrior chick who can brawl burly dudes with her naked fists but quickly enough in combat you have to be careful and keep her at mid-range from anything since she just can't stay in the melee as she'll get destroyed immediately. So yeah, weird dissonance.

Another thing about Twilight of Spirit is that the human faction is super forgettable and the monster faction is what really makes the game.

Look at this, it's even unanimous:
Kharg < Darc
Paulette < Delma
Maru < Camellia
Ganz < Volk (although this one is like a battle of least lame)
Tatjana < Bebedora

(Diekbeck & Choco can burn in a fire... probably the biggest disappointment in JRPG as far as secret characters go)

yeah I remember being way more excited for the Darc chapters than the way too squeaky clean "light" crew.

When you hear about the passing of these stars, I (a little selfishly) feel grateful for my parents and that they both are still alive at 65 and married (just celebrated 39 years! wow!). I spend more time with them now these days cooking for them or just hanging out watching football or dvr'd shows, whatevs. They raised me and helped financially support me through college and more recently through my own recent unwanted divorce. They've also recently supported my career switch decision. I don't think I could be more blessed than I am. Life is too short to take for granted and as I've been watching them age and approach retirement I've learned a new sense of gratitude in the sacrifices they made to raise me and my siblings. I hope they have many more blessed years to come.

Life's too short to be mad, stressed, upset.  I'm glad your parents have had a long happy life together and I'm always happy my parents have stayed together through thick and thin.

We've all heard of the 27 club when a lot of rock stars died (e.g. Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, etc.)

Looks like we have a 69 club now: David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Lemmy from Motorhead...

David Bowie's death is kinda hitting my mom because when she first married my late dad (still feels weird saying that) and moved to England, the first LP my dad played for her was David Bowie.  My mom marveled not only at the songs, but his whole Ziggy Stardust look. 

I have an awesome image of Din's mum rocking Ziggy Stardust look.  Sort of on what both of you are talking about, when I worked at a restaurant, I'd run into so many people who were divorced, or haven't talked to their family in years.  It's heartbreaking.  Certainly not all people are lucky enough to be born into 'ideal families' (my brother's wife's mum being a staple of that, but it's only made my sis-in-laws desire to avoid that much greater with my brother and how we all get along).... 

A little off topic now, just to compound the rough 2016 start....  woke up at 6am with a vile ass case of food poisoning.  Holy fuck my insides, I feel like I just ate a spiked-ball and chain.

Kevin Smith's write up was sweet and endearing:

Meanwhile the 2016 shit show goes on...

So on top of Bowie and Rickman, my boss (wonderful lady with the best deadpan sense of humour) went in for chemo on Monday so she'll be gone for a year (I'm hoping for the best), and my favourite waitress from my favourite watering hole was killed in a car accident (she found me and boyfriend a seat the other night when the place was rammed, it wasn't the first time she's done that for us either....but it hurts thinking that sunday was the last time she would though...).

I'm sad and a little scared.

I remember really getting hooked to Twilight of the Spirits.  The 'evil path' was a ton of fun with a cool cast of characters (between that old plant lady, Bebedora dark humour, and the general tone).  The game had a pretty cool OST too.

https://youtu.be/NIoem5-NWeo?list=PL5B2369F5A2582E0E  Yewbell so chill
https://youtu.be/HHs6QPP0sks?list=PL5B2369F5A2582E0E Mysterious old man
https://youtu.be/pegvetg30C8?list=PL5B2369F5A2582E0E Battle theme with rockin' riff sorta
+ others

I loved that I hated the main girl, her stupid short bangs, her holier than thou attitude, and extremely long arms and awful hair and fashion.  And of course, like many JRPG heroes, going for this mutant over the superior childhood friend (a truly terrible trope, but in this instance, the better option) Paulette with strategically placed mole on her breast. and adequate fighting skill.

Anyways, never played the rest of the series.
