I gave South Park the game an Editor's Choice because it was creative, stretched far beyond its source material, performed its humor well, and was one of the most memorable gaming experiences I've had, despite not being a South Park fan. I give Editor's Choice awards to games that are awesome and memorable. You'll also note that in the text of my review, I specifically point out that I took issue with some of its humor, referring directly to the rape jokes. From all I've seen, Conception is neither satire nor particularly good at its brand of humor, nor does it offer a creative or memorable gaming experience. Seems pretty clear to me which game I'd give the award to, but that's ME.

We have no problem at all with your dissent from a review-- in fact, it's quite welcome, as it stimulates conversation and gets people discussing the game more objectively (in theory). That is, provided your complaint is not "THE REVIEWER IS WRONG BECAUSE I DISAGREE." That's only a few short steps away from the utterly repugnant "THIS REVIEWER IS A GIRL/GAY/NOT MY DEMOGRAPHIC SO HE/SHE DOESN'T GET IT AND SHOULDN'T HAVE REVIEWED IT" argument. The assertion that South Park is blatantly not funny, etc etc, is pure taste, much as it seems people want to represent Conception II as being. You're always welcome to disagree, but when you nitpick and compare something from one reviewer to another, the argument falls apart.

I don't get why so many titles are going for cheap T&A humor than any other kind of humor.

Wild Arms 5: The Road to Tomorrow Follows Behind You

I believe I am somewhat in the minority of liking Masato Kouda's work on Wild Arms more than Naruke's. Not to say her's is BAD, I still find 1-3's to be incredible. I just somewhat enjoys the newer stuff a bit better.

Nope.  I think this is one of those situations where my bias SHOULD be leaning towards Naruke, but Agematsu and Kouda did such a fucking great job with the series after her (actually, iirc, she was sick during WA4's production).

http://youtu.be/TXEz-i-oORk - THe Terrible Monster Wrecking Crew (or some sh*t....that 1:20 mark is beautiful)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7TRsqRWMV7I&feature=share&list=PL883886FBAB9638A0&index=29 - Nightless City Guara Balbao (what you get when a formerly religious town turns to a video game Las Vegas...perfect)

Next to Dahngrest from Tales of Vesperia, I totally consider Guara Balbao to be one the most absolutely chill town themes I've ever heard.
Also, TERRIBURU MONSTURU ATTACKINGU CURU is also one of my favorite standard boss themes in any game ever, really.

Wild Arms 5: Persephone Battle
This is most certainly NOT the sort of song that comes to anyone's mind when discussing Wild Arms, but nevertheless, this is a beautifully crafted song, and one of my first exposures to the soundtrack of Wild Arms 5.

Wild ARMs V remains the only game in the series I haven't played (more than the intro), and I hate myself a little more every day for it. I need to go find a copy. This music is outstanding.

And I actually love the composers that took Naruke's place. She's fantastic too, but their styles definitely fit the series well.


another fantastic thing about Terrible Monster Wrecking Crew is around  is that around 2 minutes, you get a few phrases of the original Wild ARMs' boss theme. OH MAH GOD

Yeah that probably isn't enough to save the game for me. I hit level 70 last night. While I was playing the game, I had two realizations. 1. Grinding for legendaries would be ridiculous because odds are fairly high I would get crap I don't want. 2. I am sick and tired of elite abilities that create areas on the floor.....which is basically half of their abilities. I am going to be the final boss and then never play this stupid thing again. Unfortunately that is going to take forever. God damn clouds. >.>

Actually, the odds that you will get things you don't want are considerably lower. The new system is built around giving you items that are relevant to your class and skillset. In fact, that's quite literally one of the bullet points of the new loot system.

Regarding floor abilities, can't help ya. That's a taste thing and a carry-over from Diablo II.
And yeah Maxximum, you can level crazy fast now. I usually play on master or higher even with my lowbies because the loot and exp drops are just too delicious to not do that. Just wait until you unlock adventure mode if you're on Reaper of Souls. It's so good.

I'm all for a gritty, hard-boiled Star Wars detective game that takes place in the lower levels of Coruscant. Actually, yea, that sounds kind of awesome.

NSFW text I guess?

Just don't go all raving an ranting about how reviewers know nothing and your opinion is fact. That's annoying.

I don't know how you arrived at this conclusion from my post. I don't think my opinion is a fact. In fact I hate people who think that their opinions are facts.
I have an opinion that reviews are MOSTLY worthless for ME BUT I will never judge them without reading them first, I never once said that even that opinion is a fact. What part of "but hey, each to it's own criteria!" didnt you read?
Look Im sorry if I overreacted and exploded but this is the most offensive thing one can say about me because I despise people who put their opinions on pedestals, I always make it clear that this is my view on things not the ultimate truth or whatever and that my opinion is just as valid as anyone else's.

I don't think that was directed at you, kael. I think it was just a more general statement.

I'm not ashamed by it, but I thoroughly enjoyed Tales of Symphonia: Knight of Ratatosk, whereas I believe everyone else hated it.

I don't imagine it'll be a movie tie-in; they've said they want to go the Arkham route and have big, story-driven experiences like the Batman games. You won't get that with a crappy movie cash-in. I'm still quite optimistic.
10  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Wild Arms For PS4 still possible on: April 03, 2014, 03:27:18 PM
I've like/loved pretty much every game in the series, so I'm definitely down with this.
11  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Amy Hennig Creative Director on EA Star Wars Game on: April 03, 2014, 02:42:07 PM


The director of one of my all-time favorite game series which was inspired by one of my all-time favorite film series now working on the game series based on another one of my all-time favorite film series? HHHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

I'll definitely give Mistwalker another chance because Lost Odyssey was probably my favorite 360 game and one of my favorite RPGs.
13  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: KINGDOM HEARTS 3 & FINAL FANTASY XV at E3 on: April 01, 2014, 10:27:21 AM
such jaded.

                                                            much cynicism.

14  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: KINGDOM HEARTS 3 & FINAL FANTASY XV at E3 on: March 31, 2014, 08:27:52 PM
Nothing to show except massively turned-around financials and the continued success of FFXIV and the current success of Bravely Default?
15  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: KINGDOM HEARTS 3 & FINAL FANTASY XV at E3 on: March 31, 2014, 07:37:10 PM
Yeah, I'm quite stoked about XV. The team behind it is proven, Shimomura is my musical queen, and Square Enix has, in general of late, been making the right moves.

If Disney can work its way back into our hearts (by going back to basics?) maybe SquareEnix too! :D
