I think Arndt is skilled at creating quality characters and good dialogue. Those are both things that Star Wars sorely needs-- I'm really quite excited to see where this goes. I haven't been this optimistic about Star Wars since I was a little kid waiting for Phantom Menace.

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.

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.

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.
1131  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.
1133  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!
1134  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.
1135  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.
1136  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.
1137  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.

So this is a thing that exists.

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.

Relevant.



I got lol from this.

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