Nah, I can agree with that too-- I was going to make that point, but I forgot. Their last few titles have been pretty rough, but I can't totally discount this FFXIV thing. I mean, they're a business, they must have analysts saying "guys you're not going to make any money on FFXIV anymore." No matter how much eye candy you want to make, spending money and resources on something that is basically guaranteed to not perform financially MUST have some kind of motivation, don't you think?

You know, I can't lie. Square Enix must know A Realm Reborn isn't going to do that great sales-wise. They must. Which is why I actually admire them for following through with it for all of the people already invested in and that have already bought FFXIV. It's a classy move and one that actually makes you think they give a damn about their players and their reputation. Even if ARR isn't that great, they've clearly put a lot of effort into it, and I think that says a lot.
1083  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Mass Effect 3 (expect spoilers for the entire series) on: November 10, 2012, 02:50:57 AM
I don't necessary care for a "happier" ending, but the fact that this isn't the whole "lol Catalyst and other dumb shit" ending is what interests me. For all I care, the game could end right
Code:
when Anderson and Shepard are dying
and it would still be better. Their ending is bad, inconsistent writing, and the EC only makes it worse-- because they take their bad writing and add insultingly huge amounts of 'detail' to it. I return to my favorite example,
Code:
your nice, tender, minute-plus scene with your LI while Harbinger is in the background blasting people to death. People who aren't you or the Normandy, which, you'd think, would register higher on the HOLY FUCKING SHIT KILL IT scale

But yeah, I don't think the ending needed to be happier. That wasn't the issue, at least not for me. The sacrifice and all that was kind of poignant.


EDIT: Also, no, it's not idiotic. It's just what some people wanted to see. There WERE casualties. That wasn't my particular problem with the ending, but it's not even close to idiotic to have expected something more in line with the rest of the series' tone. Knowing that this mod exists and that I won't have to truck through Bioware's pile of dog shit at the top of an otherwise glorious mountain of awesome has reinvigorated my desire to play the game.
1084  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Mass Effect 3 (expect ME1&2 spoilers) on: November 09, 2012, 08:23:28 PM
Wow. You've given me hope. A new lease on Mass Effect. Now I can replay the series and sidestep Bioware's shit storytelling choices.
1085  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dark Souls on: November 09, 2012, 02:32:40 AM
I THINK you can get another. I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure you can.

Tales of Xillia 2 final battle track (no spoilers, other than music).

"Music spoilers"
Code:
Holy fuckstick, I love this song. One of my favorite things this series has been doing is using the vocal theme as the basis for a battle track, and using it for the FINAL BOSS this time is amazing. I want to import this game naoooooo.
1087  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: If Namco wants my money... on: November 06, 2012, 11:36:19 PM
Buy Xillia!

And Innocence was excellent-- the DS version, that is. I enjyoed the plot, or at least, what I could understand with my average Japanese. Spada!
1088  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Disney Buys Lucasfilm on: November 04, 2012, 11:00:56 PM
I'm optimistic about the series. If Disney gets the right director and script then Star Wars may be great again. Lucas seemed to lose his zeal in the prequals, or had too much control.

He lost his zeal and replaced it with stubborn adherence to awful ideas. I think the original movies were more a product of someone keeping him in check and vetoing flagrantly awful ideas.

But I agree. I'm very optimistic now.
1089  Media / The Soundroom / Re: Final Fantasy Vinyls on: November 04, 2012, 07:37:43 PM
I'll do some digging and see what I can come up with. this would make a great feature.
1090  Media / The Soundroom / Re: Unchain Blades Exiv Samples! on: November 04, 2012, 06:20:07 PM
Narita and Hirota are definitely my favorite members of the troupe.
1091  Media / The Soundroom / Re: Unchain Blades Exiv Samples! on: November 04, 2012, 03:43:40 PM
At least he's not like Kanye. Shy and unsure is better than I AM THE VOICE OF A GENERATION.

http://www.play-asia.com/Final_Fantasy_Vinyls_Limited_Release/paOS-13-71-1n9-49-en-70-5j89.html

So this is a thing that exists.
1093  Media / The Soundroom / Unchain Blades Exiv Samples! on: November 04, 2012, 04:12:02 AM
http://www.dogearrecords.com/ube/sample.html

13 minutes of samples. Nobuo Uematsu, Tsutomu Narita, Yoshitaka Hirota, Michio Okamiya.

I really like what I've been hearing here. There's a nice bit of variety to it, and I'm naturally disposed to luvluv anything involving Hirota.
1094  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: They're discontinuing Buckyballs! on: November 03, 2012, 01:15:08 AM
Relevant.



I got lol from this.

I'm drunk, so it's not THAT great of a cheevo. But still. Well-played.

Thanks for the feedback!

So, you've mentioned a couple of things here. I think since we already have "the Soundroom," it's safe to say a subforum isn't super necessary-- although if others disagree I'm sure this is something that could be talked about.

Quote
On the forums? On their own Blog? Iím not really sure if this alludes to the forums as means of an outlet for this musical appreciation of users/listeners or just open that you want them talking about it anywhere really.

Yes to all. In my opinion, talking about it ANYWHERE is an awesome thing. However, since that wasn't the exact question you were asking-- I'd say if you have thoughts on an album we review (or hell, one we HAVEN'T reviewed yet), make a post with the title of the album and say what you think! These are discussions I love to be a part of, and would absolutely welcome everyone else's thoughts too. Reviews are objective-- I've loved music that some of my fellow editors have hated, and vice versa.

Short answer: talk about it anywhere (please!), but if you want to talk about on the forums, that would be fantastic, and I'd love to weigh in, too.

Thanks again for the feedback!
