1  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Nier 2 for PS4 on: November 28, 2015, 08:44:54 PM
Per the latest article posted on RPGFan, this statement was made without any further detail/explanation:

"Unfortunately, it looks as though Emi Evans, who provided lyrics and vocals in the original game, will not be returning for NieR: Automata."

Soundtrack hype just went down like 80%. I still think Keiichi Okabe and the MoNACA Sound Team can do fine with any vocalist, or with no vocalist at all. But the soundscape they made for NieR was ... I've never heard anything like it. It was okay they didn't try to do it again on Drakengard 3. But for another NieR game? Her voice should at least have *some* presence IMO.
2  The Rest / The Bazaar / CDJapan sale includes SaGa Battle -Ren- 30% off on: November 27, 2015, 01:50:06 PM
I searched through a bunch of import CD deals today ... nothing particularly impressive. The Square Enix members store (US) has the Bravely Default Christmas album 20% off. That's not too shabby.

But probably the best deal I saw was 30% off one of the best albums of the year, the "Ren" album in the SaGa Battle series (it's the latest album, includes an Imperial SaGa track and more SaGa Frontier goodness).


If you don't own it but have flirted with the idea of owning it, now might be a good time to pick it up.

Have fun spending your money this weekend! :)

Say what you will about XIII-1, at least it was heavily (and definitely too) engineered to make you use the combat system

Yeah, it had a great combat system ... when using three characters. In two-player mode it was painful and annoying. And, oh, that's what you're stuck with for like, 10 of the 13 chapters.

XIII-2 and LR:XIII ape the above combat system with their own changes (Serah and Noel fill slot 3 with a monster, Lightning is essentially 3 characters in one).

Also, why make a new thread? I didn't see any topics in the first list of pages, and there was a news article on the front page ... it'd been a long time coming for LR to get a Steam release, I thought it was worth posting about.
4  Media / Single-Player RPGs / LR:FFXIII to Steam -- the trilogy is here on: November 20, 2015, 11:41:33 PM

For all you PC-only folks. This is cool.


Because XIII-2 and LR:XIII are both, individually, better than XIII. Combined, XIII-2 and LR:XIII tell an incredible story (IMO). And the music. Oh my, the music.

I'm so happy about DQVII and VIII on 3DS. Those are the only ones in the numbered series (besides X ... gaaaah MMOs in numbered series) I've not beaten. So this is how I'll get to them. Fresh new fun versions!
6  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Seiken Densetsu 3 CG movie (fanmade) is amazing on: November 10, 2015, 01:24:46 PM
If you've played the game, if you know the intro, the six main characters, the ... everything ... then you're going to love this.


The fact that some fans just got together and made that for free makes me want to slap SE and be like "guys get on it"

Ruins - Falcom Sound Team jdk (Brandish: The Dark Revenant)
Not even sure what this game is, but this music is really quite impressive.  Superlative instrumentation and fideltiy.  Something seriously off about that girl's left boob, though, in the artwork.  Does it look completely deformed to anyone else, or am I just not seeing it right?

That there is a remake of the original Brandish, available on PSP (with Vita compatibility). And you should buy it. It's a dungeon crawler and it has lots of Falcom charm ... including that fine fine music.

After looking at the trailer, all the robots look like they have Emil heads, and this worries me.

Good catch, but Emil looked like that because (IIRC) he became a weapon after experiment, so it makes sense they'd have those heads if they're weapons.

This depends on the year.

We know that Emil, per canon book material released in Japan, goes on to live forever in a world without humans. The automata could also go on to live forever. If the events of NieR: Automata take place after NieR (especially *long after* NieR), there's the possibility that Emil was either captured and experimented on further, or that Emil himself has made a bad choice.

The only way the "well they're experimental weapons, so *of course* they'd be laying around" story makes sense to me is if it the story takes place before the events of NieR. Because, IIRC, the last surviving members of weird-head clan were Emil and his sister, and she gets pwned in the game ... so that leaves Emil's round head bobbing around in the wastes.

The first part of these games is resisting the temptation to look at news, I don't want anything spoiled.

Yes. This is the greatest part of the game's difficulty level. The game has begun already. Now we wait, and with patience will come virtue's awesome-est reward.

Will the same vocalist be creating the languages/lyrics/vocals? My fiancé is a linguist, and this made her ADORE this game. We ever performed the "Kaine" song a few times (trust me, singing harmony in a created language ISN'T EASY).

She hasn't said anything explicitly yet. I'm sure that Emi Evans will be on the OST, but perhaps not as much as she was on the first NieR. (y'know, she was only on like 2 or 3 songs in Drakengard 3).

She's easy to reach on FB or Twitter!

Wayô Records is a small operation, but i love what they do. <3 hamauzu.
12  Media / RPGFan Music Discussion / Re: CC/CT Arrange Finally Happening on: October 19, 2015, 12:09:38 PM
I was definitely happy to hear Radical Dreamers, despite the simplicity the CC ending is absolutely beautiful

Best end credits ever.  So insanely beautiful.

preach. I cry every time.

EVERY time.
13  Media / RPGFan Music Discussion / Re: CC/CT Arrange Finally Happening on: October 16, 2015, 10:54:26 PM
I just wish there was more, especially from Chrono Cross.

If it sells enough, maybe he'll do a pt2 that's all CC? <3 <3 <3

Also, to the above ... idk if Joanne Hogg would fit with CC, even though I LOOOOVE her. I wonder what Emi Evans could do with Garden of the Gods?
14  Media / RPGFan Music Discussion / Re: CC/CT Arrange Finally Happening on: October 16, 2015, 11:36:19 AM
Really happy with the track selection.

My copy hasn't arrived yet, but in a perfect world, honestly, I'd have dropped this whole CT+CC thing and done CC only, and I'd have included:

"Predicament" 2-12
"People Seized With Life" (or "Those Imprisoned By Fate") 2-16
"Garden of the Gods" 3-01
"Chronopolis" 3-02
"Star-Stealing Girl" 3-06

Well, at least Frozen Flame made it. But Chrono Cross's source material has so much more to offer. I'll take what I can get.
15  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Indivisble: first combat prototype footage on: October 09, 2015, 09:32:55 PM
Those who made it to the end of the prototype get to hear this SICK boss battle music from Kikuta. It's SO Mana Beast, your hair is going to be set on fire.
