I love it too - I'm just curious how they're going to execute this as an online game...  I wouldn't mind a [seemingly] great world to explore. =)

I like hearted stories that become deeper and more symbolic over time. NOT darker and edgier -- that never works; but rather, one which becomes more meaningful without ever losing its sense of wonder*.

Oh Radiata Stories...what happened.

I haven't been able to come across a copy that wasn't really expensive, myself. The demand is crazy.

What about:

It's somewhat of a town at the top.

EDIT: man, almost forgot a real classic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2evIg-aYw8

They''re good, but both make me want to weep haha
I think they get their environment perfectly though and are amazing tunes nonetheless.. =)
.... I never thought Gagazet/Rono's as a village though.  And it takes me back to the Kimhari solo fight...God he's useless[er than others],

Quick skimming of tracks...

Legend of Nier 8-bit: Cute, very Japanese-y thing to do lately, huh.  Gets a bunch of different songs in a love SNES.5 style.  Fit's in some non-8-bit too, we hear Emily (?) sing in a sort of "over-the-telephone-speaker" sound about half way through for an 8-bit-and-not version of the ending theme.

Shadow Lord -music box ver.-: amazing the power it had to create emotion...a bloomin' music box.  Worked well for the orgel Ar Tonelico album.  Short but nice. Solidifies the tragic-ness of it all.

Blu-Bird; Hansel & Gretel: awesome continuation to the already electrifying track.  The deep chants truly give off an ominous and powerful feel.  The nasal voices almost reveal something desperate about the song.  The electric guitar is a nice contemporary addition, likes it taking the song more seriously (hard to explain that)

Song of the Ancients Piano Ver.: Yay...piano.  Lovely nonetheless, but offers little to what that the astonishing vocals did so well in the first place.  Nice on it's own merit nonetheless, the tune is so lovely.  I'd almost want to hear this when I'm blue to cheer me up.  I like how the piano actually has soul; the FF13 Piano album sounded awful, like the album was done because it was "time to do another guys! zzzzzz"....

Emil; Ultimate Weapon No.7: I never cared much Emil's theme, so it's essentially a tech version.  Still had a dash of being lovely n' Nier anyways.  More electric gee-tar, and I like it.

Emil Piano Ver.: Piano solos RARELY do much for me (I prefer accoustic), this is no exception sadly.  Nice medly, just too empty after what's been led up to it.

Kaine Duet Ver.: not of singers, but violins.  What I didn't feel with Emil is made up two-fold in Kaine's theme, to me.  I think you get a better feeling of "hope", and the violins accompanying that sweet-and-sad tune work nicely.  ...I hate to say it, I miss the odd-language vocals here...

Shadowlord; Crying Yonah Ver.:  If the medieval ages had a rave they'd play this.  Combined vocals and oontz-oontz.  It's good, but the tune is waaay intense for everyday indulgence.  Well done nonetheless, really demonstrates the variability of the artists width of musical styles.

Shadowlord; Iron fist Mix;: Another shadowlord????  Rave again too, but a bit more ...um, hip-hop than actually raver beat, there's more to it anyways.

Song of the Ancients; Lost Androids: Aaaaaahhh vocals.  Amazing, I love the violin, makes the piece very dramatic in a sort of modern way.  The vocal distortions fit in well with the techno aspect of this piece though.

The Wretched Automatons; A capella: well, an a capella of the underground ruins in a futuristic english with her toot-toot-ing the back.  Decent, but doesn't do anything the original doesn't... mind you, it's nice to get rid of the more metal-sound of the original.... but this song is too haunting for me to really dig my teeth into.  I love near the end where she actually lets out a "aaaaaah" to help carry the song.

I think it's important to NOT look at this album as a continuation of the original game, this album relies heavily on techno-revivals.  Definitely not the happiest of melodies here either.  The CD album is almost a companion to the original.  I *hated* how we got 2 versions of Emil's tune and 3 of Shadowlords.... 3!!!  It's a great album, but totally missing a few excellent tracks, only to be given a "bonus" 8-bit track.  If there's something I'd *kill* to see its a sort of "live" album done in the way Suikodens get a ton of instruments to play the tune more in the style of some ethnic place (the asian and celtic album blow me away).
It is a great album, and features some great talent - but I'm definitely underwhelmed.  But for what the tracks are, they're great.

I actually said I was going to in my post, but I couldn't remember the lyrics.

I always get stuck past bright copper kettles.

It's also got the most intense village song (where nothing is actually "wrong" inside of it)

Yeah, that was pretty snazzy. Anyone else generally think that town music usually sucks? I sure do.

Depends on the game.  And my mood, usually game music is nice since its lyric-less and easy listening.  When I'm doing an assignment late at night...

But, yeah, I can do without...

To be fair, I thought Nier actually had some great art design.  It was only on a technical level that the graphics weren't so great, but there were times when it was quite pretty.


I think the major complaints were the environment.  Great ideas, just poorly fleshed out given the hardware.  I think the character designs were top-notch though.

So, I played a bit of Valkyrie Profile 2 yesterday, and I was surprised how much I liked it. The story's gripping at the onset, even if the cutscenes are still too long, and the gameplay is deep, challenging, and a lot of fun now that I finally got the hang of it. I still haven't grasped 100% of the Battle system, and the platforming still kinda sucks, but overall I'm enjoying it this time around.

I like you. =)

It's an excellent title, and I thought a good way to follow up a transition from the 2D game to 3D (much like how Nintendo was able to do so well with the Mario and Zelda series into something so unanimously loved).

I like red head guys. I know, weird, right?

If only Hugh would let me dye his hair ginger...

My boyfriend likes red-heads... =(

I can only go dark red without looking like one of "those" European girls (like red-red, not ginger-red).

And I think there was a topic here...somewhere......maybe...
8247  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: December 09, 2010, 04:15:13 PM
I've always preferred the dark hair/pale skin look.

Me too :P

Gamers guys... preffering the opposite of the California blond and tanned since 1981.
... I like a dark eyed and hair'd guy myself..... xP

I hated Adventureland for everything besides looking at Ryan Reynolds.  I hate that main kid too.
8248  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of PlayStation(s) revealed on: December 09, 2010, 04:08:21 PM
I understand what he's talking about.

At the beginning, the beast boss that you need to stun hitting the flowers (or letting him charge in them)

That boss doesn't represent the game. He is the only boss with such gimmick and is pretty much the hardest boss in the game.
Now you made me remember the nightmare that fight was.

I will actually go so far to say that he IS the hardest main-game boss for sure.  Resources are pretty limited by the point of the game and he tags with his two pups.  I think I died like 3 times before I beat him and got the mission, something not even the final boss managed to do to me.  Interesting turn of events, especially within the first 5 game hours
8249  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Have you "RPG'd yourself out of other genres"? on: December 09, 2010, 01:03:54 PM
Ehh.  It did a bit maybe before, but with the recent drought of any good epics, you kinda have to look elsewhere.  That and the lack of *good* RPG multiplayers has been a turn off every so often, so I've been good at driving and fighting games.

I've had trouble evolving with "classic" RPGs as well, I find the wait-your-turn system a drag sometimes unless it's done somewhat intuitively (Arc Rise and Luminous Arc being some of the worst recent offenders in S/RPG genres).  I've enjoyed games that add some dimension to it and I'm probably one of the biggest advocator's of Tri-Ace games for that reason.  They're games are typically fast paced, or deep (not story wise, but gameplay), and typically use players to win battles by means other than level grinding.

Interesting topic though...

The evironmental hazards alone in Vesperia ruined it for me, so I didn't even have time to learn the intricacies before I quit.

I have no idea what you're talking about...


*Encounter by a plant thing where now you get attacked at random by a plant when you're fighting other monsters.

?????????????????????

I dunno what to call it. I only played the demo and I recall getting attacked by some plant thing which drove me up the wall. Maybe it was only in the demo or on that one stage, who knows. I just know I lost all interest after that. Maybe I'll check out the demo again and see what it's called.

Yeah...the demo boss. I honestly have more trouble/deaths with him than most bosses in the game for some reason (excluding hard modes and boss missons).  DIfficult fucker, I hate him everytime.
