Time to clear some stuff up...

Quote from: "Silverwolf X"
Hoshiyomi - Ar tonelico hymmnos concert Side Ao
Misha's songs, and some BGMs.

Tsukikanade - Ar tonelico hymmnos concert Side Kurenai
Orica's songs, and some BGMs.

Those 2 above and the OST makes for all the music you will find in the game, except Claire's song I think...

There are many other Drama CDs with new songs, but they are linked to the drama dialouge.


Claire's song(s) are on Hoshiyomi (performed by Yuuko Ishibashi). But she does a little extra singing on her own album, the Hymmnos musical (there's a second one coming out for Spica as well).

Except for the four drama CDs released by Frontier Works (Side Orica, Side Misha, Side Shurelia, and Side Extra), all of the Ar tonelico soundtracks are on this site, they've been reviewed for ages. Depressing that people had to ask questions about them on this forum...and Silverwolf, since you said you actually listen to the drama albums, I'd love to see some soundtrack reviews for the AT drama CDs! ^^

Quote from: "Bernhardt"
I actually recommend Ar-Tonelico, Hymnos Concert Side Blue (Ao) ~ Hoshiyomi (Reading the Stars) and Ar-Tonelico, Hymnos Concert Side Crimson (Kurenai) ~ Tsukikanade (Playing the Moon).

The tracks are vastly remastered and improved versions from the original pieces found in the game, on the original soundtrack. Definitely my favorite out of any tribal chanting albums I have.


What's with the "on the original soundtrack" statement? Outside of the opening and ending, the songs on the Hymmnos Concerts are all exclusive and NOT found on the OSTs (Japanese or US). And, they ported over the exact versions of Expressive Hill ("Singing Hill" according to NISA) and Phantasmagoria, so.......don't know what that part was. But Bernhardt is 100% correct that the in-game versions of the songs are ... umm ... lacking, compared to what's on the albums. They just sound like REALLY rough cuts in-game.

Quote from: "CluelessWonder"
I didn't realize there were so many endings in the game, like 7 or 8.  I'm only planning on playing this game once, but it's nice that it has a high replayabilty for those that like doing that.


One playthrough in the game can net you half the endings on the way. The real "split" is:

Code:
Partway through Phase 1 of the game, you choose who to install the Purger crystal into. This basically determines which girl you officially "go for," though you are free to finish the Cosmospheres of all girls. I chose Aurica. Choosing Misha alter's the game's path slightly, and gives you "Misha" endings instead of "Aurica" endings.


The variations in the endings are so tiny that it's hardly worth mentioning. Getting the "highest" level ending unlocks a cute costume to look at in the "Extras" menu...that's about it.

Code:
You can choose to end the game at Phase 2, which you...really shouldn't do, that's like only halfway-beating the game. Phase 3 allows for a bad ending, a good ending with Aurica/Misha, or a Shurelia ending. Thus, regardless of you choosing Misha or Aurica, you can pick up all of these endings on the way.

Edited to make the second one even better. :P


If you invented #2, you are awesome. I vote this one.

2585  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Completed RPGs of 2007 on: February 06, 2007, 04:43:25 AM
well, 2007 has started up, and here's my list so far:

Ar tonelico: Melody of Elemia (PS2)
Shining Force: Resurrection of the Dark Dragon (GBA)
Super Robot Taisen: Original Generation 2 (GBA)

It shouldn't be hard to guess which one I enjoyed the most out of that lot. :P

Currently working on (so, should be completed well within 2007):

Astonishia Story (PSP)
Legend of Heroes II: Prophecy of the Moonlight Witch (PSP)
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (DS) - yes, the first one, I'm THAT behind
Shining Force Neo (PS2)

Good times. Good times.

Must have missed him then, haven't seen him update the Reviews section in a while.

Where'd you order the OST Ramza? I know it'll be out in March, same as the official complete guidebook.

Anyway, first press of this came with:

1. A mini OST.
2. A mini art book.

Both contained in a seperate amaray case.


1) I'd been posting a lot of review updates, but Damian's still totally in charge. His laptop busted over teh holidays.

2) I was wrong, I did NOT Preorder DSS. I had preordered Luminous Arc. Though the release date is solid, preorders on DSS OST have not been listed on play-asia or VGMworld.

3) I heard the mini OST, which is why I'm interested in the real OST. Good, good stuff.

If you have a review you wanted to send in, you can hit me up with the email address I just PMed to you.

Word up!

2587  Site Related & More / RPGFan: The Site / Poll: audio samples on: January 29, 2007, 06:52:00 PM
I am looking into changing all of the sound samples to a standard low-bitrate mp3 format. This would not only expand the sound samples' usability, but would also probably save on file size.

More to come, thank you all for the feedback.

the music used with the video was genius.

Over the years I've had people write in about their inability to listen to our "streaming" audio samples (and by "streaming" I mean "really outdated formatting"). So, please answer this poll and provide any comments alongside it so I can work with this part of the soundtracks section in future updates.

Thanks!

Anyway, I submitted a review a few days back. Wonder what happened to Damian? I finally get internet here int his blasted army camp and all of a sudden the reviews editor changes... again. xD


Wait, what? Damian's been in charge for long time. What do you mean by "what happened to Damian"?

I'm sure we'll have your review together soonly. Thank you for submitting it, I too am a huge Flight Plan fan and look forward to DSS (I've already preordered the soundtrack for it).

Nippon Ichi Software, as a whole, may be a bigger company, but the staffing at NIS America is probably about the same size as WD was when they spent 3 years localizing Eternal Blue.

Sometimes I wonder if WD's fallout with Sony didn't have anything to do with ... DELAYS ...

2592  The Rest / The Bazaar / Really cheap VGM lots on eBay on: January 22, 2007, 07:27:32 AM
Here are some soundtracks that no one's heard of (and I'm sure few care about...). The collection has been split into TWO (2) lots on eBay.

Lot 1 ("Male side"): http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=007&sspagename=STRK%3AMESE%3AIT&viewitem=&item=170073467679&rd=1&rd=1  (includes Super Robot Taisen, Shin Megami Tensei, Rumble Fish, others)


Lot 2 ("Female side"): http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=170073468250  (includes Ar tonelico, Atelier, Sakura Taisen, others)

Starting price on each lot is $2, BUT (since each lot has like 9 or 10 albums) shipping is a minimum of like...$15 in the US.

Go to town.

I liked XSII. I LOVED XSIII. I named it my "game of the year" for 2006.

My recommendation? Play II and III. Do it now.

2594  The Rest / General Discussions / interesting article on american vs japanese games. on: January 21, 2007, 04:06:25 AM
ditto to what Alisha said. That's exactly how I feel.

...probably explains why I strongly prefer Japanese games too.

Thanks for the explanation Tony, particularly re: the deleted post. I think I understand what you're refering to more clearly, and I appreciate that you admit it comes to "schoolyard logic."

I hope we all understand ourselves and each other. Now that this topic is fully derailed from its original post, feel free to talk about...well...anything. I liked the "EVIL ATHEIST!" joke.
