Never mind, I found it finally!

Rob - the difference between Dark Souls and Diablo III's online experience is that if Dark Souls' online didn't work, you could still play the game.

With Diablo III, you couldn't play the game.

To tell people to get over it is bullshit.

Rob is talking about the error 37 criticisms that people are still bringing up to this day. Error 37 was a problem got less than a day at a time in which most people were a asleep. People shit on Diablo 3 before they even get into the game. My issues with the gameplay I mentioned in the podcast are still valid, but the fact is that the Internet loves to hate Diablo 3.

And thanks for the feedback, DarkCecil! Stoked that you dig the show.

Why has no one recommended Digital Devil Saga yet?

from the DmC OT on NeoGAF:

"As a DMC fan, I just feel like the internet and the gaming press have been telling me that I'm not allowed to hate my new stepdad just because he isn't as cool as my real dad, and I'm an entitled cunt because there are homeless orphans in Africa.

Like, I get it, but my dad was still way cooler."


Yeah, but in this case the new stepdad is a philanthropist, takes incredible care of your mom and makes her happy, gets along well with your brothers and sisters, and isn't trying to replace your dad, he just wants to support you.

I'd be okay with a PS2 remake as long as they kept the awesome 16 bit shop music.


Later, Ace.

I hope that you will be able to eat the Fire Emblem people to absorb their powers.  This has already had a proof of concept with Kirby in Smash Bros.

Serph devours Marth!

Serph becomes FABULOUS!

Kinda excited for this. I hope XSeed gets to localize it.

Also no more ACE+ and Shimomura on composer duties? Womp womp.
1042  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Wind Waker U on: January 23, 2013, 10:55:10 AM
So uh, this is the only 3D Zelda that I think is worth a shit. And oh my god does that comparison shot look awesome.

Maybe they'll complete the dungeons that got scrapped?
1043  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem on: January 23, 2013, 10:54:22 AM
Well... that's certainly something.

I'm willing to be it's a strategy RPG.

It's not that I thought it was outright bad-- I'll take AAA-budget scifi whenever I can get it. I enjoyed the plot, and could have swallowed some of the other plot-related stuff if I could have gotten behind the characters a bit more. Still, it did well, so I'm hopeful in regards to a sequel.
1045  Media / The Soundroom / Re: Kid Icarus: Uprising on: January 22, 2013, 09:27:51 PM
I did not play the game, but this soundtrack was excellent-- Sora does a fantastic job with the soundtracks in their games. And kudos to you for pimping out SEMO, those guys are awesome :)

1046  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: New Devil May Cry, bitches. on: January 22, 2013, 09:22:09 PM
Nobody is stupid enough to believe that.



I think Capcom legitimately wants to get bigger sales, and they realized courting a western audience is a solid plan for that. But they're having an identity crisis, and that's why you're ending up with things like RE6 that try to have it both ways. I think contracting Ninja Theory was a legitimate decision to say "we want to make a DmC that will have a wider appeal in the West." Whether or not you believe that methodology is effective, though-- that's the rub. I don't actually think it WILL be all that effective. Explosive CoD-like sales just aren't the norm.
1047  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Divisive Movies. on: January 22, 2013, 08:36:23 PM
I disagree completely, that movie was full of complete plausibility issues. I wanted to love it, but it couldn't get basic non-sci-fi things right.

Why would someone build a medical machine that can't operate on women? Why would they then give that machine to a woman, who is sort of important since A) she's related to Weyland and B) she's the commander of the ship? Why did no one care that Weyland was alive? Why did no one care when he died? Why didn't anyone run to the left instead of straight when escaping from the spinny death ship. Why did the biologist who likely had years of experience assume it was safe to remove his helmet on an alien planet solely because "well I guess there's oxygen? The fact is, aside from tons of unexplained loose ends (which I can appreciate, sure, they don't have to answer everything), it fails the "are these characters believable and is this at all plausible within the context of the world that has been set up?"

Also, I really don't think you're being fair. You've basically said "if you don't like the movie you either don't get it or you're mad it wasn't an Alien prequel (even though it was, though again, that wasn't my problem with it)." Why can't I dislike the movie because it was full of plausibility (within its own context) issues? I've seen that Prometheus Explained video, and it does not explain the complete lack of believability OR most of the actual issues people take with the movie. In terms of how the characters behave, the movie is utterly unbelievable. If you want to talk some sci-fi that doesn't make things obvious but still makes sense in its own context?

Blade Runner.


I actually meant to say Sunshine, not Blade Runner. Although Blade Runner is a great example, too.

EDIT 2: And I say all of this as a person who thought the movie was mildly enjoyable-- at least until I started thinking about it. Kind of like the ME3 ending, but I won't get into that ^^.

An interesting write-up.
1049  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Divisive Movies. on: January 22, 2013, 10:21:06 AM

I believe this says all one needs to say about my thoughts on Prometheus.
1050  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Composer Interviews... Who do YOU want to hear from? on: January 22, 2013, 01:59:42 AM
Thanks for the responses, everyone.

Neal, I'd also love to see if we could chat with Meguro-san. Great suggestion.

Same to you, Pat. I don't know much about Ys music (other than WIKIWAAAAAAAAAAAAAA guitars and that I like Celceta's OST), but that's also a good idea for coverage.

Dice, no problem. It was something I wanted to do for a long time, and I'm glad it worked out. You wouldn't believe how long that interview was in the works for. All four of your suggestions are great ideas, too.

Mesh, yes. We're already talking to HyperDuck about a Dust-related interview, and they worked with Alex Brandon on that, so I think that would also be a potentially doable one. Plus, who doesn't love Paris Cathedral from Deus Ex?

Wild, Go Shiina is a much-beloved composer by Don over at SEMO, and also a very good suggestion. Unfortunately, we're limited to RPG-related composers, so Wakai might not be doable, but hey, maybe he's done an RPG we can ask him about :).

As for a special on orchestrators and arrangers, it's a great idea. It might be difficult from a technical aspect, and it would have to be related to RPG/adventure/visual novels in some way, but it's definitely interesting.  All that said, your questions about transposition and getting a piece together for a large ensemble ARE great ideas, and I can certainly look into asking those questions when pertinent in the future.

Again, thanks to all of you guys for your suggestions and comments. Keep 'em coming!
