Yeah, I"m confident the VA in this will be at least pretty good. This probably was a very rushed job, and I'm betting they didn't have a whole lot of direction for a trailer dub.

I thought it was fine enough.  Noctis sounds good, but the last line was completely stupid... "It's been a long time...too long... not much longer"  ..LIKE, HUH????  Who speaks like that?!?! 

People with hastily-translated and not smoothly-localized Japanese dialogue :D

Might be a good time for me to rewatch the series!

I thought you had to get to the end of his quest within the time limit to get him? Is that not the case?

The completionist in me hates that I have to rush through Suikoden 2 in order to get Clive. Because I want to take my time, but I also want to get everything. CRAAAAP

I actually really like Suikoden IV's OST. I know that game isn't well-loved, but since I've literally never even seen it in action, I can't comment on that.

On a related note, my project for Christmas at the family's place is to pick Suiko2 back up and finish it once and for all.

Actually, it was quite elegant. You imported your S1 data to S2, and then you plugged in a PS1 memory card and imported that data to S3. The PS2's memory card slot worked with PS1 memory cards (for backward compatibility), so it was a piece of cake!

I actually saw that earlier but didn't have a chance to listen? Can I be lazy and ask you to link it here :)?

Per the tracklist, I think that song in the first link is called Devil's Wind (?)

I too love chiptune. One of my favorite parts of MAGFest last year was the random bursts of chipmusic being jammed out with all throughout the place.

edit:

this mix is awesome

I like a little of both. I try not to dislike a sequel for being different-- in fact, I think that's a much harder route to take. It's not always successful, but I like ambitious moderate successes more than totally safe rehashes.

Got Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD ReMix today and I still Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaate the beginning of Kingdom Hearts II. It is almost game-ruiningly slow and confusing. Like a bad dream that you can't wake up from. Ugh...I'm 2 hours in and it's the 4th time I've played through this section, though I'll admit this is the fastest and most fun this section has ever been, but that's still not by much...I just want the game to freakin' start already. I think I only have one more day...or was it two more days? Ugh...

I'm sort of the opposite, I like that beginning segment but still agree it feels like it takes forever... I hate tutorials for very basic controls too. Yay! You managed to jump! New cutscene! Poor Vivi gets beat down twice too :(

The game had aged well though, I love how smooth the graphics are (and how awkward some of the Disney-esque NPCs look x)

It'd be okay if it wouldn't drip-feed the story details. I have no idea who anybody is or what's going on. I think they're trying to make it compelling, but after a while the constant stream of questions without answers gets on my nerves. And that happened around the end of the first hour. And yes, the tutorials are stupid, I don't like the mini-games though they're not quite as forced as I remember. I think last time I just did the ball one over and over again because it's the only one that's actually fun...and that's probably because when I was a kid "Keep the balloon/ball in the air so it doesn't hit the ground" (I forgot what I used to call it) was my favorite game to the point of obsession...

But mostly it just moves at a glacial pace, yet I don't feel like I'm learning about these characters or their world, or even how to play the game. It's just unnecessary...I know later games try to justify this sequence, but it still irritates me greatly how pointless it is until the very end...it's like the beginning of Metal Gear Solid 2 all over again...okay, maybe not quite that bad, but closer than I'd like...

^ 100%.

MY NAME IS ANSEM.

DiZ (worst stupid name): HAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Player: ....heh?

And yeah, since the chubby kid just kinda chirps out information, the girl just tags along, I guess Hayner and ROxas had some small-nothing spat... It'd be great if they had more weight to the plot.  I do like the "Glitch in the Matrix" look and feel of the town (I always find 'twilight' a depressing time of day myself), but that's about it.

DiZ STANDS FOR DARKNESS IN ZERO
