It's like I've said in other threads lately, it's the little moments like that that stick with me in RPG storylines.  Not the epic bombast, but the more "human" moments where the characters just kinda get to be themselves. 


This ^

It's what Tales games used to be good at doing, and what the ATEs were great about in FFIX.

And now to keep up with news regarding XV; At Jump Festa, XV will shown as video only and also will be part of Tabata's Active Time Report on a livestream (like it was said in the last report). The date for this is December 20th.

Sounds good, can't wait for more XV news. I'm really hoping they'll finally show us a town or city area. The open field and cave area from the TGS trailer was great, but
I really want to see a huge city area with lots of buildings and NPCs walking around.

Me too. I wanna see some life and some people-interaction.

I've begun to hate cinematic trailers; they're usually all flash.
The latest gameplay trailer was great, but I do love when developers then sorta ease into the 'other mechanics' or showing off the world.  Indeed, yeah, I wanna see the "other stuff" next!  Shops! Cities! Fields! Menu?!

Minigames!

Are we really arguing about the physical capabilities of these characters based on their designs?

I'm pretty sure Wakka couldn't murder you forever with a blitzball. Pretty sure getting hit by a megaphone wouldn't kill you. Pretty sure a sword with the heft and weight of the Buster Sword would definitely not be able to be lifted or used by Cloud's (Barret's words) scrawny ass. Physical properties of characters, ESPECIALLY in JRPGs, have negative bearing on what they are actually capable of doing.

I'm no fan of Lightning, but if we're going to dock points on her for being 'not physically intimidating,' we maybe want want to consider literally every non-token-big character in a JRPG ever. Except that we never bring up how physically imposing the dude heroes are-- only Lightning gets to be subject to a wholly different category of scrutiny? Horse shit double standard. She's a lame character, but not for that reason.

Also everything Dice said. Korra is a fantastic example, because she looks like someone with her training would. And she's awesome, but for many more reasons than that.

Yeah I don't think Ygg was commenting on your dislike of Lightning.

Was Alisha the one like twenty pages/a year or so back who didn't think pure ARPGs were RPGs (and didn't like ARPGs) and therefore said FFXV wasn't a RPG?

Who was that, anyway?

someone wrong, that's who.

^ I'm torn on the KH OSTs.  For the most part it's more the original areas that shine for me than the Disney worlds (with a few exceptions of course).

I'm wondering if they'll release the HD OSTs soon.  I definitely loved the reworked tracks a ton.

I adored her work on Radiant Historia and loved her for Super Mario RPG (which was an OST that knew when to be cutesy and knew when to "sound" like an RPG).

.... I'm just generalizing a lot.  GO SHIMOMURA.  Uematsu got Distant Worlds, I'd love to see other Final Fantasy composers being worked in there.

The HD OSTs are out in two days. I have my CE preordered :) http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/SQEX-10473

Also, I'm not sure they re-did FAM. I think it was already orchestrated, so the VGO didn't re-record it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZGQfHjfars

Of course, it's already basically perfect so perhaps not messing with that perfection was a good idea.

oh my god i forgot how much i love this song the goosebumps are exploding

Winning at the buzzer is more important than anything else :D

In terms of my epic failures, I played a match shortly after my great success last night in which my roommate and I won, but not thanks to me. I suicided FOUR TIMES IN A ROW AT 0 PERCENT with Toon Link because I was derping. Hard. He racked up EIGHT KOs with Ike against two very skilled players, so I afford him full credit for the victory and for carrying my sorry ass.

Yeah, I love Shimomura's work to pieces, but FFXIV's OST was a home run... or like, ten home runs. I wish them luck.

Sorry I was online with my roommate slaughtering randos in tag team. I hate playing with randos on the internet. Except when my roommate and I get to murder them.

Highlight of the evening was double-9ing two people in a match with Game and Watch. I hit them both at <20% and KOed them, then with a full oil bucket killed both of them at the same time again from 30%. It was glorious.

I like how after 3 years of it, we're STILL arguing about final fantasy games and our own personal likes and dislikes regarding how they're approached. The best part of it all is at the end of the day every single one of us will be guaranteed to play XV regardless of how bittered we were or how engrossed and overjoyed by previous installments.

If you say otherwise I will call you a baldfaced liar.

Hundreds of hours on FFXIV, enjoyed XII, have beaten Type-0 twice, Curtain Call is one of my favorite games this year, the HD FFX and KH versions have been carefully and awesomely put together and not at all rushed out the door. Also looking very much forward to Explorers, FFXV, Type-0 HD. The number of Square games I haven't enjoyed is vastly outpaced by the ones I did ^^
45  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: FINAL FANTASY XV, This is a fantasy based on reality. on: November 22, 2014, 11:39:14 AM
Considering some of my favorite games this year and last year came from Square, I don't agree surg anyone hoping they fail. I also don't understand why you would ever hope for something to fail, especially when lots of people enjoy their games. That's a level of cynicism beyond me. Also, I agree sub everything Din and Ygg said.
