Not a fan.  it's really "chaotic" (granted, it fit the game for that, but I don't find it as "listenable" on a normal basis).... hmm, then again, it might be perfect in that respect.  The tracks are pretty good, but I kinda like the more melodic D2 better

Hm, but now I'm curious for D3 since it's the NieR dude, and none of the composers from D1 and 2???  I think?

The camera is far worse in SOTC, to the point that it's almost game breaking in parts.

I never understood bad camera remarks.  I thought his shitty grip killed it for me instead to even try completing Time Attackß.

You know, while I'm really liking the theme that plays in the official site is kind of a shame that we a never getting some of those mean-spirited melodies from the first Drakengard again...

I'm mixed.  I agree, but all the same, I'm sick of "evil latin chanting" for an epic-anything theme.

Lotsa red, lotsa white.... lotsa red staining white.  Lovely piano.  Graphics are "ok", looking forward to clips n stuff. 

...I also hope we can get more than just "level-to-level" gameplay, and if it is, it'll hopefully be done better this time around or make gameplay more interactive and varied.

I just received a call from someone I know.
A close friend of mine died. He felt sick and fell in a comma when he got to the hospital. His organs failed him in less than a couple of hours and they unplugged him.
He was 32...

I'm so sorry.  Whether I know them or not, I hate when I hear about young people passing away.

I'd still say they're kinda different, but I'l play along.

Co-op: Secret (well, KH had none, but co-op is awesome)
Magic: Secret (first KH sucked for this, I prefer the roulette in BOTH Secret and future-KH's than going into a menu while you're fighting)
Battling: Kingdom (honestly, the weapon recharge thing in Secret of Mana sucked donkey dick)
Music: Secret (mainly because listening to some KH songs were just a musical portion turned instrumental for the whole stage *groan*; the "made for Kingdom Hearts" tracks [ie; not Disney-related] were great though)
Characters:  Kingdom, oddly.  Even if they are pretentious anime riddles where like half the cast has issues of mistaken identity or some shit.  Secret of Mana was kinda boring for this, but SeikenDen 3 was a vast improvement (dunno if we're getting into that here though)

^Being excited for Drakengard is pretty weird, that's why I said in my previous that I was shocked to see so many people excited over this.

Our NieR thread did really well for an odd release like this (i.e.; where gameplay wasn't the selling point of "a game").
6205  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: A Step Back: FF-X on: March 13, 2013, 03:06:30 PM
Horror stories are usually about stuff like that or even skipping "spoken" dialogue which leaves you out of a percent. 

... Hm, I kinda like the idea of endings based on % completion than specific event-requirements.
6206  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Surprise! Drakengard 3 on: March 13, 2013, 03:03:49 PM
Yeah, me neither actually.  THe only trouble I have with controls with most games though is camera being "inverse" or not.  At the very least, I find I get use to most game controls even if they start as wonky.

Also, I should add.  I think the BIGGER excitement in this is the return of the reputable staff, because being excited for Drakengard is sort of...an odd thing[?].

Maybe Parn is willing to give his copy away for free, Fadedsun. :P
But yeah, NieR is strictly about it's world, music, and story before I'd argue it's about its gameplay.
6208  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: A Step Back: FF-X on: March 13, 2013, 02:36:51 PM
Maaaaaaaan, play your game without a guide like a real man. Don't give in to being a cheater.

Not when the 100% requirements are nothing short of ridiculous.
6209  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Surprise! Drakengard 3 on: March 13, 2013, 02:31:55 PM
It technically is... but well... *shrug*.

Just read the Grimoire Nier when you're done.  My first read = Mind blown.
Nier is like ten bucks these days too, so yippee!

Aeo summarized the "legacy" pretty nicely:

...that's not the real reason why Drakengard 1 is so memorable. No. Its the fact that both the narrative and the ascetics grow more and more grimdark/crazy until it hits full on batshit insanity. Its entirely a game about increasingly bad shit happening to bad people while everyone becomes more and more fucked over. In a way, it turns most JRPG plots onto their sides, since, as often happens in video games, the world starts off peaceful but grows ever more dangerous as the events in the game goes on, but with the caveat that unlike in those games, the hero doesn't magically save the day by beating the big bad, and in fact, doing so just makes matters worse.
.

Like I said earlier too; literally the "nicest" things in these games is the first two or so chapters, everything after gets dark, creepy, and various shades of disturbing.  In that, it's unique, it's hardly a tale of "hope" like most RPGs try to pass along; sometimes even your best efforts aren't rewarded.  Essentially, it's like looking at something gross: it's disturbing, but you can't look away.  NieR had a similar effect: but it was more of just a well told and sad story.  And I know I'm just repeating myself by this point, but the idea of making pacts with all your favorite mythological or fairy tale monsters in exchange for something you value is just cool (becoming awesome at the cost of something just feels more real than super-anime-magic-powers I guess), and the game has hack-n-slash elements that's a lot like Wednesday Addam's wonderfully bloody play.
