KOKIA's singing Noel's Theme is easily my favorite song on XIII-2. That song gives me shivers and sometimes I cry.

Zero Escape is the greatest thing to ever happen to me. ZE3 will happen. We need to convince Kotaro Uchikoshi to go with Kickstarter.

If you missed the livestreams, this page chronicles all the runs, the players, and their length of time. This is VERY handy for navigating through the hundreds of hours of goodness that went down.

I HIGHLY recommend the TAS stuff for Super Mario Kart 64, Super Mario 64, Super Mario World, as well as the 4player Metroid speed run and the 2player COOPERATIVE Goldeneye run (where one person controls movement and the other controls shooting, it's nuts!)

Lots of other great stuff too. I've been watching this stuff like a madman. Wish I had donated. They raised mad dough.

1) Suikoden-style collect-a-thon for characters, with best/true ending requiring you nab 'em all.
2) super-insane HD 2D art, cel-shaded is an option if you wanna do 2D in a 3D environment.
3) soundtrack done in a "too many cooks spoil the broth" style, but without the spoiling ... just make it awesome and involve everyone awesome.
4) traditional combat system, anywhere from 4 to 6 people in a battle, balanced so that there are good, active roles for both physical and magical damage dealers.
5) decentralized but ultimately linear storyline, a la Romancing SaGa.
6) mini-games that don't suck (simple, but well-built ... slide puzzles, space invaders clones, tower defense, heck even snowboarding if you do it right!).
7) each character has one skill unique to them, otherwise characters fall into an array of job types (10-15) that unlock different skills/spells/etc as they level up.
8) save anywhere, AND inform players of where major points in the game are to suggest "hey save now" OR "make a separate save now" -- alternately, frequent auto-saves with a huge save history (a la Skyrim)
9) setting doesn't necessarily matter. Just make it good.
10) story ought to be compelling. Make me cry. Make me want the best possible outcome.
11) redeemable villain isn't a must, but it's nice (I love Suikoden II, but crazy unredeemables such as Luca Blight make me nauseous ... gimme Kuja over Sephiroth!)

Breathe easy, take all the time you need. But plan carefully, you only have 100 turns!


Kinda psyched for this.

I like the big holiday season finale episodes of Downton Abbey that air around Christmas. But they're not Christmas-themed per se. I just like Downton Abbey is all. :P

Being a "first post," I can't help but wonder if this is intentional trolling. Someone just wants our collective blood pressure to go up because "Y's" = "wise" and then HEAD ASPLODE... :P

my wife loves all things Marvel, good or bad.

Claimed it, thanks!
72  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, The Last 13 Days on: December 01, 2013, 11:19:03 PM
FWIW I thought XIII-2 was a great RPG, better than XIII in pretty much every way possible.

I don't think Lightning Returns will be able to top it. But that's probably because I fell in love with all the time travel (and the ability to *re-do* a time/place scenario to open alternate paths). Not sure how Lightning Returns will hold my interest. But we'll see!
73  Media / The Soundroom / My alltime favorite band reunited and put out a new CD (FIF) on: November 26, 2013, 03:08:25 PM
Five Iron Frenzy. Ska band from the 90s. Broke up in 2003. Had a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign in 2011.

On the 10 year anniversary of their "final concert" (before they toured again this past year), their new album "Engine of A Million Plots" came out.

And it. is. boss.

Please check it out on Spotify or iTunes or whatever y'all use. Here's their new music for "Zen and the Art of Xenophobia."


Featuring Wolverine-Lincoln and Jesus with a machine gun.
74  Media / The Soundroom / Re: Best Uematsu albums? on: November 25, 2013, 09:34:04 AM
Well, that "Guin Saga" anime had pretty good music, yes. But he's doing less composition these days and has taken on more of a supervisory role. There are whole soundtracks being credited to "The Earthbound Papas" now (I think the next Unchained Blades game EXXIV, as well as some Neptunia titles...). But in fact it's mostly Tsutomu Narita doing most of the music-writing, Uematsu just establishing some main themes. Uematsu also did this with a guy named Kevin Penkin on some Idea Factory visual novels (which reminds me, did NORN9 come out yet...?)



Yes, yes it did. I've been meaning to listen to this.
75  Media / The Soundroom / Re: Best Uematsu albums? on: November 23, 2013, 08:00:40 PM
Not sure if you count it as "FF" -- but Final Fantasy Legend, which is truly the first game in the SaGa series ... excellent Game Boy soundtrack.

Also good is his 50/50 split work with Mitsuda on the SNES game Front Mission: Gun Hazard.
