I have to admit. It was a lot easier to get the 20 hearts this time around.

A little too easy...

Except for Fun Fucking Fun Island of Hell...  Wasted too many pesos there.

I think that the lack of instructions is likely going to be something that's delineated by the publisher of the title.  More cost-conscious companies will not include the booklets - after all, the tab is still there to hold paper there.

Actually, this has already been confirmed: Apparently other games like Uncharted shipped with proper manuals. Capcom was just being cheap.

Dice likes instructions books for:

1) Small game adjuncts I missed on
2) Pretty pictures.

I thin it's stupid that Nomura is acting like a pisshead about KH3 because the handheld's haven't sold up to snuff... but I do say that Birth By Sleep is not only the best in the series (weird for a spinoff), but one of the best games I played that entire year.

Yaschas Massif was bossa nova.

Yes!  Thank you.

With that said, it was a shame that the Piano Collections for XIII wasn't all that good outside 3 tracks. Is really hard to do something better after the Piano Collections of FFVII or VIII though, I mean holy shit my ears are having sex right now omg.

Feels good. :3 teehee~

I loved the piano arranges for 7 & 8.  But yeaaaah... The FF13's lacked... soul?

I love Find Your Way, even on it's own as a song, "soundtrack-for-a-final-fantasy" title aside, I thought it was really pretty.  I didn't like much from FF8, a few popular ones, I do think Blue Fields was a brilliant overworld, and The Compression of Time much like Find Your Way was as eerie, mysterious, and fulfilling, the former leaving me a sadness that made me enjoy it all the more.

What I'd kill more for?  Accoustic arrange.  I think piano are nice, but accoustic are my "ear sex".

Super tired, long day, dental work tomorrow. D:

I'm tired and in deep thought.

For better or worse, the Japanese sure are more creative than the US.

EDIT: The youngest [?] one has a stupid ass hair clip... it's not clipping any hair to the side.

Watched Sherlock Holmes 2.... I loved every minute of it. x)

I just can't get myself to have any interest in these movies. The whole Sherlock Holmes as an action/adventure hero really turns me off. Plus, I can't stand RDjr doing an English accent. I'd rather have a true Englishman doing it. I really need to watch the new Holmes tv show.

For what it was worth, I love the wit.  RDJ does a great Sherlock and the action isn't that big a component of the overall scheme of things.  I think they hit a better mark with the second film anyway, one of the rare cases where the second flick impressed me more than the first.

I think is better to say that the soundtrack was well made but not all that memorable, that I can believe. And aside from the graphics it was the second best thing from the game (even if not every single track was amazing or anything).

I could never love a soundtrack as a whole for most games.  Maybe... 2?  Maybe 2 games have done that for me.  If only a few songs are good, perfect.  I thought that's what the point of iTunes was too.

Well, personally, maybe not the most memorable, but some of the tracks did that well enough for me to be quite memorable.  Saber's Edge, Ragnarok, the main battle theme, Dust to Dust, the Eidolon battle, Lake Bresha, the Yaschis Massif [sp?, it was a perky swingy/jazzy tune], and a number of the character themes were really nice, and some enough to make it to my iPod for some nice [lyric-less] listening. :D

Corrupt/crap government is a deep-ass root.  I don't think the death of one bad seed will be the end of the shit in Korea.

Whatever, I'll just leave this here.

I have much the same problem with the music as with the rest of FFXIII's crapshow: It's overwrought, unremarkable fluff. With some exceptionally poor choices thrown in to boot. The whole thing (so far) sounds like the composer is either grasping at straws or listening to executive meddling. "Quickly! That kind of song will be popular with demographic A! Also throw in something for demographic B! Also this was popular in 1997 in America, make sure it gets in!"


Saber's Edge was fucking baller.
I loved Dust to Dust as well.  I had no issues with the soundtrack.  I think your hate is seeping to other parts of the game. :P

Few OSTs have every track made and lined with gold.

Nier and FFXIII-2 have saved an otherwise unimpressive RPG generation for me. The fact that the Shadow Hearts team is no more really soured any potential this gen had.

Would you vouch for FFXIII-2 being a good game to someone who disliked FFXIII?

Actually, unanimous reaction seems to be in favor of that.  Not that FF13-1 set a high bar in anything other than graphics.

Sidekick + Demension Door fucked up Sphere 221 (or whatever digits).

My brother wrote me a rock song.  Well, he wrote me a rock song written in a melody of how I hear rock song.  It's horrible sounding, with double kick, lots of the same note, and an occasional flute.... and amazing all for it. x)

That last one is awesome Dice.

I have a Alpha Protocol shirt my friend gave me. It has a blueprint drawing of a gun on the front with all sorts of attachments like silencers or magazines on them that say shit like +1 "whatever" I wear that one to the gym or the bed or the couch.

I have a threadless t-shirt:

But I got it in "medium" but it came in "hipster medium" which means small.

I threw it away I think

That Chozoglyph shirt is beyond awesome.  It's creative and beautifully coloured.  It's a nice site too, great stuff.  But sometimes their stuff "avoids copyright" too much and the references work only on fans essentially.  Some of the stuff has the "American ugly" cartoon style to make it a bit more swanky (again, probably to avoid copyright).

I'm an American Eagle small and an Aeropostale Medium or even Large (!!) sometimes.  wtf.
I hate the lack of standardization in clothes.
My dad got me a hoodie from Penn State... I said to get me a Medium because I wanted that "I'm studying comfort" and didn't want it to be tight... that stupid thing fits like an adult t-shirt on a child.

Is there one Enix game where magic doesn't suck endgame compared to physical?

Valk Pro a bit, I guess.  But for the most part...
