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.

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.

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?
37  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.

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.

The IGG campaign also has a downloadable prototype of the game to play ... like, a mini-mission that introduces some of the game's major distinctives in the span of about 20 minutes.

Absolutely worth playing.

And here it is: http://www.labzerogames.com/indivisible-prototype_win.zip

"for 3DS"

looking like another exclusive.


is that "blah" because you don't own a 3DS, or because you'd prefer it be *not* on a handheld?
41  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Shin Megami Tensei 4 FINAL on: October 05, 2015, 11:51:04 AM
so glad this is a sequel and not a port/remake.

Also: Ryota Koduka beats <3

Also Promise, the Legend of Mana album, is great, and when I have a computer with Internet again I'm totally going to talk more about it.

...IT'S OUT?

I am in an odd position where I enjoyed the game and yet can't argue against any of John's points in his scathing review.

It's odd, but it's totally understandable. Sometimes we find ourselves sucked into a game that, on a scale of pseudo-objective merit (are you [developer] doing x well? Are other games of this day and age doing x better than you?), just doesn't make the grade. But it catches our fancy and we play through it anyway.

I've felt this way about a handful of I!F-published games. And I tend to feel this way about old games that really haven't aged as well as their peers.

RS2 is in fan-translation hell

Didn't SE recently port RS2 to iOS in Japan? I wonder if the programming behind that version is a) accessible to modding and b) a cleaner experience to edit than the SFC version?
45  Media / RPGFan Music Discussion / Blipico's "Final Symphony II" concert report is up! on: September 16, 2015, 01:10:11 PM

The pre-concert talk is easily the best thing about this. I've read plenty of interviews with Uematsu in my day, but this is one of the best.

We announced earlier this weekend that the ancient mystery of "who arranged FFVI Piano" is revealed? We got an answer, and this pre-concert report goes into great detail about how originally the performer *was* going to improvise the whole album (thus performer = arranger), but it proved too challenging, so they canceled the recording session, flew back to Japan (from Italy), asked Sagisu to arrange, and then Reiko Nomura recorded those arrangements.


But there's plenty more interesting stuff in the article as well, including Uematsu's (non)-involvement with the FFVII PS4 remake.
