When there was no localization announcement in the first wave of the release, I was worried we'd never get. Now silly Japan is re-releasing a game with some additional features, and *now* we get the real deal in NA/EU. That's how it ought to be!!

(how it ought to have been for FFX-2 Intl/Last Mission, et al)

I am psyched out of my mind to play this game.

skeptical of them listing basically every well-beloved 16/32-bit JRPG as an inspiration.

They listed three. And I think they're right to. I mean, they *didn't* list Star Ocean, and they're right not to, because they're not doing action-based combat, and despite the relatively large ensemble of characters, they probably aren't building 80+ "vignette" mini-ending scenes for those characters paired up.

Nor did they list Dragon Quest or Final Fantasy.

As far as I'm concerned, their early IPs (BoD and Cthulhu) were them getting their feet wet. I agree with you that the games were a little TOO repetitive: the second half of Cthulhu was a bit of a drag. I haven't played the two PAA games, but I think there they were at least somewhat hampered by having to follow along with Penny Arcade's ... whatever it is.

This game looks like the real deal. I think this is the kind of game they were born to make. If they can spice up combat, and keep them hawt Sega-CD-ish animations comin' my way, I have no reason not to deeply want this game. I think it's going to be rock solid.

In any case though ... yeah, $20 committed. Soundtrack is insta-win. Hope game will be too. :P

Get it. Tell me how that chiptunes album is. :)
64  Media / The Soundroom / Hip Tanaka's tribute to Hiroshi Yamauchi on: September 22, 2013, 11:39:36 AM
Hirokazu "Hip" Tanaka did a ton of 1st-party Nintendo music back in the day and is still involved in the music scene.

With the passing of Nintendo founder Hiroshi Yamauchi, Tanaka-san put together two arrange tracks as tribute. One for Metroid, another for Super Mario Land.

Thought some of you guys would enjoy it.

65  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: FFIV The After Years gets a 3D iOS remake!? on: September 21, 2013, 11:18:47 PM
I'll happily take the flack for this...

I thought The After Years, as a "canon fanfic" of sorts, was *really* good. I have virtually no complaints.

"Interlude" was a waste of time.

But TAY was fun and fresh and I like short chapter-y stuff with big endings (see: Live A Live).

Serene, I don't see a list, just different game names in the subject line.

What do you have available for 3DS right now and what prices?
67  Media / The Soundroom / Re: Alundra Rap Video by The Legendary Zoltan on: August 26, 2013, 06:40:59 PM
Out Zelda'd Zelda.

HELL YES.

I love you so much.

Make another one of these. Using more Alundra music. I loved when you sang "DA DA DA" along the one part of the song.

If you do a chill track to the last dungeon music ... omfg

Not gonna add any VGM to that list?
69  Media / Miscellaneous Games / HATE PLUS on: August 20, 2013, 11:14:59 PM
The direct sequel to Analogue: A Hate Story is out.

You can import cleared save data or start fresh, either way it works.

The presentation is streamlined (commentary from AI while you read is a lot less cumbersome), and this method of storytelling just blows my mind. It's really, really good.

And I'm not even done one playthrough yet.

(You can't be unless you cheat by messing with your local PC's date/time settings. It forces 12-hour breaks. Which was a bold and controversial move on the dev's part. But I for one appreciate the chance to take a break and process what I read.)

This beast is available on Steam for $9. Go get. Now.

"The game departs from traditional RPG conventions through its use of RTS elements, yielding a combat system that is fast-paced and dynamic"

So it's an action RPG.

Why the fuck can't someone just do an old fashioned turn based RPG for once?

Bravely Default, SMT IV, Trails in the Sky, Etrian Odyssey, bunch of Indie RPPGs probably. Not sure what you're looking for exactly, but all these are turn-based and old fashioned as far as combat goes.

This is going to be on consoles right? How many console RPGs have been turned based in the last two or three years?

The entire Atelier series.

To kill a Mockingbird - Book Report

A parody on To kill a Mockingbird.

The actual book is great and I recommend it to anyone who has not read it yet.

I actually forced my wife to watch "How to kill a mockingbird" a few weeks ago when I found out she'd never seen it. It's classic.

Opening the sale to individual album purchases...

Not happy about it, but it's what I gotta do.
74  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Project Phoenix (another Kickstarter!) on: August 09, 2013, 09:27:26 PM
The project is being led by Hiroaki Yura, the violinist and head of the Eminence Symphony Orchestra in Australia.

I actually used to write for the Eminence blog and used to have pretty frequent communication with Yura-san. I don't know where this project came from, but I'm psyched that he's leading it and he has networked enough to bring a lot of people together for it. I have high hopes. :)

Oh man, "eyes the color of dreams" from FSB90. I should've known it was Bananarama all along.
