I hated that final scene with Fi.  Like you said, the music, the tone, her words, it sounded like it was supposed to mean something... but came off as me wanting to go "alright, gtfo, it's fine, thanks for nothing". 
Midna on the other hand... the amount of shit you and her went through made her farewell that much bigger a deal.

Fi. I was hoping there was going to be some scene about her where she shed the robot-act.  But... nah.  Worst part of her as a guide, she doesn't have the information from the get-go, and told you a bunch of other useless shit ("rumours"? wtf is this, People Magazine?).  There was no big moment you got to see anything other than what you saw the first 10 minutes.  A damn shame, I thought she had a lot of potential....

I do agree with many on this though: Demise was baller looking.  It was a cool looking final boss fight.

I thought the game hit quite a strive with narrative in Twilight Princess.  I feel like a bit of that was lost here with just about everyone except awesome Groose scenes.  He was the only character I can really look back at fondly.  =/

...I'm done.

  I'm glad peeps here realize it, though.  I said Skyward Sucks to a co-worker who has the biggest hard-on for OoT, and like many others, they can't really pin WHY they liked Skyward Sword, more they're just willing to say "It was good!".  The game had fun "elements", but ultimately wasn't too exciting to play. 

Good tracks IMO though (besides the Ballad of the Goddess; which ultimately earns a full letter-grade bump-up for being Zelda's Lullaby in reverse and making it work... how lucky for Koji Kondo, saves a lot of time thinking a new piece: N64 ver backwards)
Bamboo Isle
Zelda theme's that isn't her Lullaby
Whenever the fuck this track was used
Fi's theme was damned nice, I thought.  Reminded me of Thomas Newman shit.
Lanayru...err, in the past.
This one is my favorite, though.  Simple and pretty.

A major kudos, even though I generally didn't like this game, I loved almost eveeerryy moment of the Water Temple in this game.  Swimming was kept to a minimum (Farore flooded made up for that in bullshit).  The Buddhist theme and the boss killed by a better sword than (whoops) the Master Sword was a really great experience.

That...and Gorons.  I always appreciate them though.  They're so awesome.

Last presentation for school ever done this morning.


This audience is on...fucking speed or something.  But that is seriously great news. :)

I want... but I'm blue how much is thrown into DLC.
I wish if games were gonna do that, they'd charge the base, incomplete product a bit less (wishful thinkin').

Calling it now, Ex-SOLDIER dlc in the next month.

I would LOVE a cameo battle.
Fuckin' throw in FF6's Terra or Sabin (not knowing Squeenix and "good decision" it'll be Strago or Umaro),
Some Cecil.
FF8's Squall who'd fit in with the rest of the teen-dramz cast.

I didn't like how "INNOVATIVE SWORD SWINGING ACTION ACTION ACTION" took precedence over doing cool shit with items.

The vacuum was dubious.

The bow and arrow was seriously underplayed.

The fucking whip???  Really??
It COULD have been cool, I liked Indiana Jones-ing it across a chasm.  And I LOOOVED the boss fight where you used it.  But wtf, how does a whip slug things down like that?  And, my favorite, in the final dungeon, the whip is used on a lever that's not even across some bottomless pit... you just need the whip to yank the lever.... your hands don't work for that, evidently... wtf.

It was super obnoxious to have a a plaza to do your shopping, and sit through the same shitty dialogue each time you went.  It's funny.  I thought games were supposed to improve features... why the fuck can't you scroll through text like every other goddamn game in the series??  Restarting your shield from scratch each time was super dumb as well.

Fighting the Imprisoned (...3 times), on a 2nd playthrough, is something I never want to do in my life.  Ever.

I didn't find the dungeons that exciting either.  No cool moment where everything made sense (like OoT's Forest Temple where you feel so lost to start).  No awesome gadget that opened the dungeon up (like the awesome Spinner in TP).  No really cool sidequests (MM) -- and being rewarded "gratitude" sounds like something you'd do in Kindergarten.

And, the final nail in the coffin....
"Link.... I USED YOU!!!"

South Park has lost its touch yet you're still okay with Simpsons? ...Irony?

I've been diggin Ugly Americans for it's really backwards humour.

At the end of the day... I thought it was pretty bad.  Try saying that to a Zelda fan though.  I got reamed out here for saying it a few times.

Find Zelda!
Now prove yourself by getting the flames!
Now get the song of the hero!
Get the Triforce!
I guess you've done enough, okay, go after Ghirahim now!

Worst offense: you can't even fucking go fishing wtf.

I still don't really follow what you're saying. Maybe I didn't spend much time looking at the characters eyes or the cover.

Heh, yup.
6145  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Graces F on: March 22, 2012, 02:03:17 PM
It's like anyone who doesn't know Aeris dies, well...

Coincidently, there's a dead Aeris on the back of the European Final Fantasy VII box.

Well, all right, if you haven't played the game it might look like Cloud is giving Aeris a very solemn swimming lesson... but it's much easier to conclude Aeris is dead. I still wonder why he sent her to a watery grave though. She's bound to come floating up again, all bloated and blargh.

I always thought about how they weighed her down for that moment.... maybe put stones in the "hole" Seph made her... :D
Unless Ancient's water is the exact opposite of the Dead Sea.  Y'know... cuz science fiction plots let you make up whatever the fuck you want as an important plot device.
6146  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Graces F on: March 22, 2012, 01:54:11 PM

BTW, since this is a Tales thread...there's a suspicious European trademark for Tales of Xillia. Probably a good hint.

Good news and bad.  I was reallly pining for that director's cut before an announcement.  Because when it inevitably does happen.... well, it'll be PS3 Vesperia allll over again.
6147  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Graces F on: March 22, 2012, 01:50:21 PM
Asbel has heterochromia on the cover.  You've seen two characters get Heterochromia through the course of the game.
Richard's is more subtle, but he didn't have it at the start of the game and it's rather noticeable if you pay attention, and Emeraude.
It's obviously Lambda, since you see it in action before you fight her.  Just a glance at the cover shows you that it was going to
happen; I was more surprised it took so long.

The game's been out for like three years though.  It's like anyone who doesn't know Aeris dies, well... you're kinda late to the punch; but it's not like people are yelling out why Asbel gets a blue and purp eye the same way fanboys blabbed about Aeris' death.

If you put it that way, technically Luke's new hairdo gets spoiled in the opening video.  There really isn't much to spoil -- who knows why he gets the dual eye colour unless you play through the game.
Did seeing the hetechromia "shock" and "offend" you??  I don't think so, it'll probably just peak your interest till you find out why, in game.

I tried challenging Rockgagong for a kick..... fuck me, I knew he was big....but.... fuck me....

When the fuck we gettin it in English godammit, WHEN?!?!???!?
6149  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: March 22, 2012, 11:42:01 AM
He does look good.  Would it be too much to ask for him to have a witty one-liner or two somewhere?
Or maybe  10t weight to drop on someone's head?

Also, I wonder if after you beat him the 4th time, will he run the coliseum?

i was actually hoping the 10t was his special attack.  How couldn't it???????? :o !

But the Zelos costume fits Richard a lot...

And dat Anise costume.

Anise's outfit rocked on Patty in ToV (PS3) and it looks really nice on Sophie too.  The Rita one for Cheria is a bit of a miss though.... pink hair is totally clashing with the red. x_o

Harold on Pascal is stunning though!! I want!
