Never mind a beating, you mentioned Yuri and Zidane, you win the thread!

That said, while I think what the characters are wearing is a minor concern, it's more a case of 'what could have been' in a game with otherwise wonderful art design. My general dislike for the costuming in FFXV isn't limited to Cindy's silliness-- I think the main bro group also looks very samey. Compare all of them + Cindy to any of the casts in FFIV through... well, all the non-XV ones. A lot more color and variety! I want more of that!

Semi-related: The FF Mobius lead character was given 'more clothes' after fan feedback...



I personally see this as an attempt to make 'less ugly' attire --- but I'm having fun imagining if his gender was switched and what the commentary would be (and daresay, if Cindy were to get the same treatment).  Anyways, I definitely like his new outfit, it's definitely less ostentatious and the old attire was....'quite something' even by JRPG standards.

EDIT: And we don't have a topic for this game.... but holy shit them mobile graphics for FFMobius are unreal.... o_O

Yeah. He looks less dumb now. Cindy will also look less dumb when they re-design her costume. And then everyone will bitch about omg censorship. And I will not care because this is flat out a better costume.

All the drama over the backer created limerick is a nonsense.   The changes Obsidian have made do not impact the game play in any way and i think they have handled things in a sensitive and classy way.    Also i have had no problems with bugs or crashes at all, so well done Obsidian.

Agreed. The backer didn't even mind.

Yeah, I'm definitely a fan of those ones, Aurian. I haven't played DGR2 yet, but the music I heard from everyone else in the podcast and what I've heard in 1 is rad. I'm totally unsurprised Child of Light has hit so many favorite lists-- that game has such a strong aesthetic and I think the music suits it so well.

I'll definitely check out that Yurusanai album-- Uematsu + jazz sounds like something I'm very down with. Thanks for the rec!

And it's our pleasure. Nothing could make the work we put into it more worthwhile than you finding new music :D Which ones did you end up checking out?

Mickey:

Yes. Crimson Dragon should have been my childhood reborn but instead it was a clunky looking game with amazing music.

And hell, go for it. The feature is just game OSTs (well, with one exception). Music chatter!

I remain convinced this will be a great game that will not be very much like its predecessor. That concept art reinforces my belief. Man that's rad.

As some of you probably already noticed (it's been on the front page for three days and will be through Sunday), we've started our weeklong Music of the Year feature! It's always my style to do things late, but I think we did it pretty well!

http://www.rpgfan.com/features/Music_of_the_Year_2014/Editors_Favorites.html

Our editor's top picks is a part of this feature I'm really proud of. There's a ton of music you can dig into here, and I humbly request that anyone with even the slightest interest check it out! You might find something you missed from 2014!

(and of course, there will be new goodies added every day!)

Anyone have any faves from 2014 they'd want to share?

I HAVE played Koudelka-- and in fact bought it back when I was in high school rampaging through the main SH series. It's a really neat game, although you're right about the battles being quite slow.

I don't know that it's aged quite as well as the SH games, but it's definitely something I'm glad is sitting alongside them on my shelf. :D

And yeah, Suwano looks like he finished the OST, got drunk, typed a bunch of nothing and submitted that with a hangover the next morning.  It's gonna be a nightmare to review that OST....  Good luck talented RPGFan team!

don't call me talented

All right folks, let's bring the discussion back to Final Fantasy XV, please :).

25  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: FINAL FANTASY XV, This is a fantasy based on reality. on: April 01, 2015, 07:18:30 PM
Don't insult other members.
26  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Xenoblade Chronicles X on: April 01, 2015, 03:45:56 PM
Xenoblade was composed by Yoko Shimomura, a duo called ACE+, Manami Kiyota, and its vocal ending theme was written by Yasunori Mitsuda (yeah, Chrono guy). Huge team.

That's one of the reasons I'm nervous about JUST Sawano doing the entire 4-disc XBCX. That and these track titles: http://vgmdb.net/album/51792

I haven't had much time to write a substantive comment what with Music of the Year running all week, but I'm so glad to see you've joined the site and enjoy the show, and I'm glad everyone could help you try to find something for your daughter :)

I'll wrack my brain and see if I can come up with any good ones, too.
28  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: FINAL FANTASY XV, This is a fantasy based on reality. on: March 31, 2015, 09:08:40 PM
Yeah, I was happy about that. 50% is about where it felt, so I'm glad to know there's lots more yet to do. They need to make it... well, fun.

Quite a while ago, actually. Before it happened, which is why it wasn't mentioned. Sadly.

Man I bet in the 40s Alan Turing was all like

SOMEDAY COMPUTERS WILL BE UNBELIEVABLY POWERFUL -- POWERFUL ENOUGH TO SOLVE ALL THE WORLD'S PROBLEMS.

AND WE WILL USE THIS POWER FOR RENDERING BLACKHEADS.

and freckles!
