1  Media / RPGFan Music Discussion / Re: The ETHEReal String Project on: Today at 05:38:15 PM
Thanks so much for starting a discussion here! I'm a slacker and totally forgot-- but I am sure the creators would be delighted to know you decided to pick up the album!

I'm a huge fan of it. The Skyrim tunes really capture what I like about the tone of that soundtrack without quite the same tedium I find in the original material.

I love love love the Trisection arrangement, and I think alongside Secunda and Eternity, it's among my favorites on the album. Truthfully though, I really do like every piece.

Barron's original song, The Forest of Awakening, is also really excellent, and showcases that he's not only a skilled arranger.

The performances in each track are equally excellent. I know this seems to be a whole lot of positive without much critique, but I have been listening to this all day at work and really enjoy it.

Also, they covered Heroes of Mana and Eruyt from FFXII, so wins all around. In fact, the track selection in general is excellent!

this is genius on their part. cater to the mobile-heavy Japanese market AND the console-heavy one. two versions so no one can complain that there aren't 'big budget DQ console games.'

literally everyone wins. SQEX is killing it lately, that hilariously bad press conference aside.

... I could have sworn I posted that. I know I wrote a post. I made a hilarious joke about bad translations.


But it's not here. Or anywhere.

Where the hell did I post?

O_O


It's okay, Stephen, it happens to the best of us.

That eharmony profile is going to be very confusing, though.

On the upside, his profile now matches his Facebook Status.

"l-i-t-t-l-e-m-o-n-e-y"

+1 would LOL again

"Rob likes 1990s, early 200s JRPGs"
"I like games with short, snappy battle systems and interesting characters."
AHEM, SHADOW HEARTS 1 AND 2, ROB.

the problem is that when he finally plays it and hates it, we're all going to tear him from his throne of bone and end him forever for such a gross transgression.

I'm such a pro.

Ladd/Rad is the man. You should always use him. And I often use Alicia, too!

And tons of people because I'm a nerd.

You guys, this hard theory/formula talk needs to continue. I feed on it. FF Tactics may be one of the few games where I actively enjoy getting into the nittiest, grittiest nuts and bolts of the systems. Unf.

It's not impossible to work around Rapha's randomness. Yes, you can't approach a fight the same way as a character with a more guaranteed hit zone, but that doesn't mean she's idiotic. Non-traditional, but plenty of fun. I've made great use of her in WotL.

This one's a big old sad face. A sublime talent and personality lost.

I feel super strongly about not using plot characters in fft.  I can't stand how they ruin the balance of the game.  Generics for life!!

I've done playthroughs with and without. My issue is how cool they all look. EEEE

I think y'all are going to get a kick out of how we handle these fights. ;)

Unless you have Ramza oneshot Belias, I will remain unimpressed.

Though I do await your collective gripes with bated breath.

If they have gripes I will smite them

Sorry I thought you meant

Code:
stealing all the Genji gear from the assassins without ripping your hair out
This, at least, isn't even an option in WotL.

True, but it was such a vivid memory from the PS1 version that I'll never forget it. It was the only part of the game I ever had trouble with, since I rolled monk with blade grasp and two swords. The one-two punch killed literally everything.

We actually did April Fools a while back, and people seemed to really not like it. Which made me sad, because I thought we wrote some great stuff. :(

I got my only piece of hate mail ever for that feature. Mass Effect: Galaxies indeed.
