as long as RE6 is good then I'm ok.

RE5 was some of the most fun I've had in recent gaming memory

Amen to that.

I'm going to use my...slick as a fox social skills to get everyone I know and their mothers in on RE6 if it's co-op is remotely as fun as RE5's was.

So....

-Fought Evil Richard
-Fought Evil Green Goth Woman (naw, she DOESN'T LOOK EVIL)
-Yay!  End of Chapter
-If Sophie wanted to die to solve the Lambda issue, she shoulda... Stupid fucking Asbel

-Coordinates!!  ooH!!
-Suspicious island! 
-Check! There's something there.
-Subevent, gotta kill a cyborg kid before he blows up!!! AUGH!
-Too late, he blew up, several thousands in damage, party dead.
-Last save?  ...back at step one... ;_____;

I found Richard pretty easy... but Emeraude was a real dick to face and only got through it with 3 mages (Sophie was doubling as attacker/healer).  Hubert... I don't know if I like him or hate him as a character.  Much to my dismay, Pascal is usually out... her artes like putting her too close to the enemy...which, for a mage with dick-all HP/def to begin with is a disastrous combination.  Malik and Cheria are always in.  Sad with Cheria, she gets the worst battle victory quotes.... Malik's are dead-pan and hilarious... subbing in for the sad loss of Pascal.

I reaaallly don't like the dungeons in this game.  Look waay too much alike.  The whole cocoon bit got me far more lost than I should have been.

Apparently it happens quite often where they get the trademark, but just sort of hold on to it, not necessarily do anything with it.  We'll see.  I'm sure it's definitely in Banco's plan, I just wonder when.

...just don't say this at the official Tales forum.  They're miserable half the time and accusatory that the company hates them.

Anyways.
Again, I'd be disappointed.  I'm sure a Director's Cut will be announced, then we have Vesperia PS3's incident all over again. ...Man, I wish they'd make the DC a massive DLC. 13-2 is doing a good job of that.

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').
6823  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: March 22, 2012, 11:24:05 PM
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....
