http://www.zeldadungeon.net/2013/01/the-wind-waker-hd-releases-this-autum-for-wii-u/

Along with them re-confirming a new Zelda title on the WiiU (still no new haps on the next 3DS title....) we get this. 

While I want TUWAIRAITO PURINSESU, this looks pretty fucking brilliant.

That was fast.

Also nice to see the trailer in not stutter-o-vision.

Although it does look a bit too Monster Hunter-ish for my tastes. But at least we finally have giant robots to pilot, and it just ain't no Xeno game without at least someone driving a mecha.

Honestly love how fluid it is.  Like Xenogears handled world maps, but now it's not 2D.

Holy fuck.  I'm sold!!  It looks almost perfect, I hope it plays that way.
Apparently already confirmed for NA release given that it was shown for the NA Press Release lineup.  Anyways, thoughts?  Yay!  A new Xenoblade?

Anyways, brb, off to buy a Wii U.

^ I fucking hate this.

Kill it.  Or me.  Whichever first.

I'm reading for a test I thought was tomorrow but is actually THURSDAY!  YIPPEE!!! I'm gonna get naked and drink hot chocolate and play vidya games for the rest of the night!

Hey now! I find that picture to be badly misinformed and unfunny. Squaresoft has nothing to do with this travesty beyond dying almost a decade ago.

Fuck you give me your money. :P

Unfortunately, you can't quote pictures, but I do have to say that image on page 2 was perfect.

Thoughts??

Kudos to people finding something they love....but man, I don't have the love to focus *all* my energy on one thing like that.

I loved the demo, which is surprising since I don't really like Tactics games too much.  So then I go to the Fire Emblem wiki page and its got its own meant for info JUST on the one game series.  STAY AWAY.  I think I spoiler like half the game based on not warning about spoilers. D:

First off, thanks for actually reaching out to her, I love the composer interviews!  A lot of these people have influenced me for years and been a companion while I draw or made bus rides infinitely more exciting.

Motoi Sakuraba would be awesome, Hitoshi Sakamoto, Masaharu Iwata, or the wonderfully musically sexy, Masashi Hamauzu.  That's what I got off the top of my head. D:

Tons of localizations this year so far of odd items.  Pandora came out of nowhere, Fire Emblem was wonderfully last minute, Ni no Kuni was late to the party, and now this. 

I don't really care for this one (good reviews may change my mind), but always happy to see weird games getting the NA greenlight.

I coulda *sworn* he WAS working on a fancy CC album.  Then he was "working on it", then we got radio silence for like 7 years.

Anyways, I love his work, godspeed to whatever he wants to do.

Beat Persona 4.  Great finale.  The events surrounding the month of December and the game's final two dungeons (True Ending route) are outstanding.  I still think the dungeons themselves are a major weakness of Persona 3 and 4, but I have nothing but good things to say about most of the Persona 4 mechanics.  I'll be wanting to do a New Game Plus of this very soon. 

For a game with so many "good ideas" they really went a step back with dungeon design...  But I guess you pick your battles, and the game itself is so battle-oriented game... *shrug*
Man.  That new bonus ending, the "Accomplice" ending, is seriously creepy. :(


Ni No Kuni - Loving the battle system the more I get into it.  Something tells me it may grow tiresome or burdensome later on, but all is good new.  I'm also glad familiars aren't "caught" (a la Pokemon).   I got the chick in my party, so yay.  I like how the third dude to join you looks like some rockstar alcoholic. 

Anyways... The game encourages some grinding, a few levels will easily make the difference between suffering a pain in the ass or skipping along through the dungeons.  I also love the fact you don't abandon the home world, the game plays the idea of "two worlds" very well and makes sure your transportation isn't a one-way ticket... which is refreshing from how these plots otherwise tend to play out.  I also like the interactions with NPCs.

A surprising nitpick is the lack of inspiring monster designs.  Boss and character design is fantastic, but the monsters otherwise are kind of lackluster and are usually large, cartooney animals.  Normally I don't care, but this is Ghibli!  If there was anything they could do, you'd think... 

A definite problem I have is the text.  Being a Level-5 game the dialogue isn't exactly very clever, fetching and immersing.  This becomes annoying when NPCs and minor plot points tend to run on, and when Oliver can't make sense of anything half the time.  However, I have a bigger issue with Drippy being really annoying to read given that they type his lines with an accent in mind ("What are ou douin?" as a bad example of this).  The font is somewhat small and spaced as well, so constantly reading it can be tiresome and straining.

Typical Ghibli style, the game almost starts with a scene of the main character finishing breakfast by swallowing his food within five minutes and eating it like a duck (no chewing).

While I agree that All the Bravest looks terrible, Kotaku is once again writing sensationalist trash...

And companies wouldn't make "games" like this if people didn't keep buying them.  They have the advantage over real games of costing practically nothing to make.

I actually think iPads are raising kids for their free time more than anything right now
6538  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary Thread -- Making people crazy since 1987, kupo! on: January 20, 2013, 12:32:40 AM
Speaking of the 25th, I'm currently listening my copy of

http://vgmdb.net/album/36001

This :)

It is good.

As good as that collection is, I've heard a lot of these before on several other albums.  Not to say I don't love them and don't want this collection as well, though.
But *I'd KILL* if they did an orchestrated selection to some of the more "hidden gems" of the game's soundtracks. D:

FF9's Loss of Me, or FF7's Cosmo Canyon, FFX's Yunalesca fight, hell, a lot of FF12 is largely ignored (and damn that game had a few awesome tracks that'd be *perfect* to orchestrate).  I do admire a lot of the non-standard OSTs that have been coming out lately for the series.  The SQs were pretty great for picking some of the less-standard themes.

There's this new anime called Koutora and episode 1 was incredible. I watched episode 2 and it's also incredible.
I'm not sure if it's possible for an anime to keep being this good for a whole season, but as of now, it definitively has an explosive start.

I'm also amazed by the themes put forth. Gutsy stuff.

Watched it -- and yeah, wow. Fantastic mix of drama, comedy, and just that touch of romance.  I really like the relationship between Kotoura and the main guy.  The first part of the first episode was brutal, like you said, it goes a lot of places other series don't touch on, and when they do, it's spaced out a lot more.  Kotoura is really sweet though, and I was so happy when she joined the club.  Been a while since I've rooted for a character.  Hopefully the quality stays consistent!

whut the hell is happening with the last few posts here?? Amazing?  Sad?  I don't know.  All sorts of emotional haps are belly flopping around.
