For Yasunoti Mitsuda  the Chrono Cross /Trigger composer look into getting the Kirite soundtrack, and i know i am going to get burned at the stake for saying this, but i actually liked the Armodyne's  soundtrack as a whole more then Xenogears. Xenogear's ost has some outstanding pieces, but i find myself skipping alot of the tracks on the ost. I really think Armodyne is a solid work that gets alot of hate because most people have not played the game or that it does not have xeno anywhere in the title.  If you like Yasunori's celtic styled work check out Tsugunai: Atonement or Xenogears: Creid.

the obama thing was just stupid and the fourth wall breaking is getting kinda old. it loses its impact when it  appears so frequently. just my opinion, otherwise carry on *eats popcorn*

Liz Buckingham - Guitarist for Electric Wizard (Stoner/doom metal)
Samantha  Escarbe  Guitarist and songwriter for Virgin black (doom metal)
Sabine Edelsbacher - vocalist for Edinbridge

I could go on, but alot of the bands I would list, the female vocalist is no longer with the band or they split up.

I think what really sent fluxes sky high was when they added vendors that sold them... for insane prices. So people just undercut the vendors a tad and thought they were giving people a bargain. I would try Balaurea but pvp is so broken right now on my server I'm not even going to bother. Elyos have the entire Abyss including Divine Fortress. When they cancelled the server transfers the Asmodian race lost their once chance to even the odds - I think most people on Asmo side just quit after that.


Aion's server merge and the free unmoderated transfer a week after the merges ,pretty much put the game on life support. NcSoft in all their wisdom merged alot of servers that should not have been merged together. The result was alot of Elyos dominated servers where not only were asmo out numbered, but hopelessly out geared as well. Ziikel players from both factions did population counts using the game character search. The numbers were not pretty, just barely  3:2. The first night elyos had 33 freaking alliances during fort sieige.  The next problem was NcSoft set up a event  called "dash of the daevas". This event rewarded the faction who could totally dominate the opposing side 14 Major Ancient crowns,  which is around 133k ap. Elyos went into burn, rape, and pillage mode and stomped the Asmodians into the ground, on all NA servers, except vaizel. Guess where most of the asmo transferred to the first instant free unmoderated transfers were available ? NcSoft is still trying to fix the mess they themselves created.  Its gotten to the point where they changed the event rewards and used  the crowns as a carrot on a stick to bleed subs. They claimed  they had technical difficulties delivering the crowns, yet they mysteriously become available right after the times most peoples subs renewed. All you had to so to receive the crowns was  be a active subscriber, this was available to anyone who played the game.

Well, for one they had more bots than players at one point. Literally it was impossible to finish quests because they kept killing all the mobs. There are vids still around of trains of bots farming areas or camping respawns. The main thing is that Aion has some pretty ugly cash sinks. Healing lost xp from death and crafting/enchanting required tons of materials and cost. Wings were expensive, transport was expensive - mobs rarely dropped money, they just randomly dropped uncommon quality items that vendored for decent sums of cash. The higher level you were, the more money they sold for but the less they dropped. ex. level 20 polearm would vendor for 8.5k, a level 50 polearm would vendor for 500k. RMT controlled the income (drops from mobs you'd sell) and they controlled the supply (crafting mats that were gathered) as well as the AH. The inflation got so bad that level 23-28 crit crafted gear was selling for millions of kinah because that was how crafters could break even because of how much supplies cost at the AH. They couldn't reasonably gather themselves because there were so many bots, plus bots using hacks making gathering almost impossible against them. The fact that it was impossible to accrue several million by the mid 20's, much less later in the game at 50 showed just how much they had a stranglehold on the economy. You could not effectively gear your character without buying from the AH, and the costs were directly influenced by RMT. The fact that there was so much kinah in circulation despite this was clear proof that alot of players were buying gold. By the time they effectively got down to banning and blocking RMT and bots, the damage was done. The economy had gotten so inflated already that sky high prices didn't drop much, and with the massive bleed off of players, there wasn't enough competition to drive prices down either. Then at endgame the best armor requires you to crit craft the Hot Heart of Magic which requires 100 of a specific item, and if you fail the crit, you have to gather them all over again. Mind you these components AH for 150-330k EACH. The ultimate RNG cash/time sink courtesy of Korean masochism.
Everything is a money sink in Aion. The economy  eventually recovered in aion. After last  November's massive genocidal ban wave. what hurt is Aion is the fact that Ncsoft banned EVERYONE  rmt bots, player bots  that had script based bot programs. a lot of people also got banned from ip waved proxiy bans. the problem was Ncsoft method of banning was so heavy handed it damn near killed alot of servers. whole top legions got banned during the wave. alot of innocent people also got caught in the crossfire. There  have hardly been any bots since the ban wave. the rmters make all their money by hacking accounts now. bots have  now started  to reappear a bit  in certain areas due to the new expansion that is coming out in two weeks.
edit: Actually the prices got worse after the ban wave for items like fluxes and other gathered  materials because  the drop rates were so atrocious. if you kill 500 mobs you would be lucky if you got a green premium weapon or armor flux. You need  6 of those  and a bunch of other mats to make an attempt at being an expert craftsman.You have a high chance of failing this test due to rng. Everyone was trying to do this test for their profession because after you pass it you could make some sick golds and make major bank. After the ban wave prices went from 300k per flux to 750k due to the fact that there were not many people able to farm them and the low drop rate.  Most people at the time were in the late 30s early 40s and very few were 45+ needed to farm the mobs that dropped the fluxes.  As what remained of the population leveled up the economy eventually recovered.

when i was saying the sound  is muffled  i in no means  mean the album is bad  I am just spoiled from AKASAKA​ BLITZ being a damn near flawless live recording.  Wet City still beats most live albums.

I thought you were talking about the dvd, my bad. I'm not sure the album can be considered live, was that really recorded during a live performance? It sounds more like a studio record to me. I was under the impression that they recorded these new versions in the studio and not live.
OK, get ready for this: both the satashi theme and BFES are hidden easter eggs on the dvd. Man, I can't believe they actually neglected putting one of their strongest tracks on the dvd's official tracklist. I only found them because I was running the dvd through dvdshrink to make a copy to play on my PS3 (region lock). I don't even know how you unlock these on your dvd player. Holy crap.

they are were recorded live.  Glad you found the songs, i'll probably try to buy the dvd this week, if bills don't get in the way.

i personally liked their first live album more, that may just be me though. I do not like the hall acoustics muffling the sound on the new album.

I like this set more than the first one, not sure what you mean with the acoustics, sounded fine to me.

it sounds extremely muffled in some songs for instance the lady who sings the opera part in "battle for everyone's souls" is almost completely drowned out you can  barely hear her.

its no where near as clear as -PERSONA​ MUSIC​ LIVE​- Velvetroom​ in AKASAKA​ BLITZ version. I also like that version's guitar tone alot more.

they did play the track it was part of the encore if it wasn't against board rules i could mu the track

But you were saying that the dvd has bad sound quality and gave that song as an example when the song isn't on the dvd. If they played the song on the 2009 tour or not is irrelevant in this discussion.
Just forget it, I want people to talk about Meguro's music in this thread, enough of pointless discussions, I'm sure you can give a good contribution here.

hold on now, i never once commented on the dvd  I  commented on the album which was released June 23, 2010. Its not the quality, all the quality in the world can't help, if  the concert hall effects the sound.  Back on topic. Shihoko Hirata's   English vocals have improved  alot over her AKASAKA​ BLITZ performance. check your private messages, dude.

I would die well before those numbers. Three cups of undecaffinated cofee will mess me up for half a day, to the point of getting sick.

I knew I heard that music before:-

doesn't surprise me. lots of game composers have "borrowed" from classical pieces
