Where Uematsu shines is in his melodies.  We already have all the necessary melodies for an FFVII remake (in a little game called FFVII) so Uematsu's talents are not going to be needed here, methinks.

Exactly. Point well made. There are lots of examples of other composers doing better versions of Uematsu's melodies.

Here's Rob's review!


And yep, we got a review copy from Bethesda.  We don't get them for every game, but we love it when we're able to provide a review right away. :)

Nice review, Rob. I'm honestly not surprised that 4 hasn't done much in the way of innovation.  Bethesda's had a "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" mentality for years. IIRC, they said they were mostly concerned with packing the game with content... I guess at the expense of introducing anything relatively new.

That being said, I will buy this game, and I will love it. Although, I'm going to wait a year or so for the almost-inevitable GotY version. By then, it'll be cheaper, have more (if not all) of the DLC content included, and the mod availability will be ridiculous. I've plenty of back log to keep me busy in the meantime.

Ditto. In the meantime, I'll just have to avoid articles and whatnot spoiling easter eggs and other hidden stuff.

First time I heard "anime" it was spoken, so not really an opportunity for confusion.

^ Completely agree. Other than being the son of a hero, there wasn't any real moment where Bartz wasn't just the player avatar witnessing the story playing out through the rest of the cast.

There are many reasons I'm looking forward to this, but above all else is just a curiosity to see and hear a next-gen Jenova.

Part of me hopes they give her a complete redesign, another part of me hopes it's still Xenomorph Wizard followed by Lovecraftian Truffle.

And so long as it's not FFX-HD bad

I still think you give that too much flack. Aside from Besaid, I don't remember any tracks that changed for the worse.

Any of you friends with Agent D on facebook? There's posts of him lifting weight at the gym. If i had an Rpgfan questing party he would be The tank. Dinecrest would be the bard. Goose would be the camp quartermaster. I would be the Enchantments guy

I miss Goose...

Really enjoying season 2 of The Flash! Cisco is still one of my favorite characters.

And yet Iris is still just awful and needs to go away. But yeah, overall fantastic season so far.

I was just implying that some people don't know how to not let their vice affect other people. When people walk around smelling like weed (which I and many others find to be a disgusting smell) it's not okay. Regular smoking can be just as bad. I remember two teenagers walking in to a small retail store I was working in years ago and within seconds the entire place smelled like straight-up nicotine, not even typical cigarette smoke smell. All I meant is that some of those people need to learn to change their shirt and pop a mint.

Pot legalization thing got voted down in Ohio, which I'm happy about even though I voted for it (for reasons. I wish there was an option to vote in favor of something while noting that you're doing it under protest).

Redistricting measure finally passed which I'm really happy about because our it's very, very necessary. Pot legislation was what was getting all the attention but afaic this is the thing that really mattered.

Not to stick it against anyone's personal principles about smoking pot, you gotta do what you gotta do and no one should pressure you otherwise...

But honestly it ticks me off that the stigma on cannabis is as strong as it is.  It makes no sense of multiple fronts... I don't understand what the point is in keeping it illegal, people will find a way to smoke it anyway, medical uses of marijuana have shown a great deal of benefits/relief to multiple diseases/ailments, Colorado has shown it's a great as far as tax-based revenue goes, and the wasted efforts for cops to curb or fight the "war on drugs" is totally wasted on weed when there are far more serious and harmful drugs out there that DO wreck lives in far worse ways.  But fuck it, let's drink and smoke cigarettes and be happy, because those at least those aren't stigmatized (but also bad for you)!

Pot should be legal after acquiring a license that involves a class in proper pot-smoking hygiene.

Yeah, limited ingredient bag in DQH is bullocks. Especially since the upgrades don't really keep up with the amount of ingredients the game throws at you.

Borrowed Bloodborne from a friend to give it a try. I honestly don't know how I feel about this one. The short version is that I finally "get" the appeal of these games, but I don't know if it's the game for me. I spent my first three hours with it unable to get anywhere beyond the first lamp. Then when I finally made it back around to the first lamp, I spent another two hours getting lost. I finally found my way to the Cleric Beast and after another hour finally managed to kill the thing. The entire experience was extremely frustrating, and parts of it made me want to quit gaming forever. However, when I did finally kill the Cleric Beast I kind of felt like the whole ordeal was worth it for sheer pride. So yeah, I do finally understand the appeal everyone always argues about, but I do also feel like there are many more productive ways to spend the amount of stress and energy the game requires.

EDIT: Nope. Fuck these games. Finally made it to Father Whatsit, made it to him about 6 times out of 20 tries and hit him a grand total of twice out of all those attempts. Pretty serious about what I said in the above paragraph too. Game kind of highlights what a waste of time games in general can be and now I don't feel like playing anything for a while.

Finished Catherine for the second time, got the True Catherine ending which was absolutely worth the second play through of the game. I also managed to get a gold prize on Stage 7 of all things, so that was a nice bonus.

To Dice's point, I may not start randomly climbing blocks now, but I swear for the next month every time I make a mistake in everyday life, my left thumb is naturally going to twitch towards where the Select (Undo) button should be.

Actually, I learned a nifty cheat with the undo button. If the combo timer is about to expire, you can just make a move, undo it, and the combo timer will be reset to maximum.

XBC's swimming gear would like to know why this was necessary.

And that's really all I feel towards it. Not offended, not in support... just baffled.

I hate when people say the misuse of "its/it's" is their grammar  pet peeve. It's not a difficult mistake to make, and it's not as obvious as people make it out to be considering in school we're taught that apostrophe-s is used to denote possession except for that one single exception.
