We've already recorded the next episode, but you will receive your shoutout. IT SHAN'T BE FORGOTTEN.

That said, I know it takes people time to make accounts and write on forums, especially if it isn't something you normally do, so I just wanted to say that we truly appreciate you doing that. There's a factoid that goes around saying that most vocal parties make up a very small portion of an audience, and that people are much more likely to speak out when they have a negative thought than a "I really enjoyed this." Therefore, I'm REALLY thrilled when I hear that someone (like yourself) went the extra mile to come in and say something nice-- though of course, am always 100% open to constructive critique, too! So, tl;dr version, thanks a ton!

We have a comment on the iTunes page stating that song editing could be better. I'd like to address that, but I'm not 100% sure what it means. Is it referring to the sometimes-abrupt transitions I do to truncate longer songs or repetitive songs? Anyone have any thoughts on that?

And even though you don't like Chrono Cross as a game, I still love you for coming in here and talking. I'm glad you liked Lime Odyssey's music too-- because it's something I will also NEVER play, but man does it sound lovely.

In any case, at risk of sounding repetitious, thank you again. I'm happy you're enjoying, and we aim to keep making the show better and better through new ideas and feedback. May you continue to enjoy me saying "UGHSDLKGH I LOVE THIS SONG" in 1.5-hour chunks.

I've said it before and I'll say it again.
I would be totally fine with a Star Ocean reboot.
There is seriously very little room for any continuation or prequel right now.
A reboot is good in the sense that you get to keep the things that were good and scrap the ones that weren't (like the universe is an MMORPG).

I LOLed.

Although I have to admit, they made a lot of good moves at E3. I think they're doing a very good job of balancing their projects between mobile stuff and "stuff for us" right now.

In honor of scoring a victory for consumer rights today (and in honor of the upcoming community quiz):

Aww, c'mon.  That sounds like you're celebrating a small victory

I wish I was as optimistic abotu this 'voices being heard' thing as some of you guys are. All I see is a company caving to financial pressure and pressure from other industry leaders. I'm the kind of guy, though, who believes a corporation will not do anything, ever, unless it is something they are being fiscally required to do, and would pee in your corn  flakes every morning if it made them an extra buck in sales per day.

Of course this is about money.  I never thought otherwise.  That isn't really my point, though.  This is less about MS and more about the realization that there really is a line that you can push too far and make consumers react.  Because frankly before this there were a lot of people with the mentality that it's all just a bunch of whining and in the end people will buy it anyway and "deal with it".  Consumers, collectively, have spoken and what they're saying is that we're not going to buy that shit.  And that's a good thing.

Obviously MS reacted because they had to, not because they wanted to.  I don't think there's the slightest bit of good samaritanism here (well, actually maybe the region-free thing, since I don't think that was most people's complaint and Nintendo seems to get away with it...).  The point is that we, as consumers, are not totally powerless.  That is what I'm celebrating.

Yeah okay, well-stated. You make a good point.

And it IS good news on the region-free thing.

Why do I suspect that this company is about to tank, hard?

That said, I do think they had the beginnings of some good ideas in there. I still don't think, even if they had fantastic hardware offerings, I'd be getting one though, since Microsoft's library has historically been almost bereft of anything I'd want. Lost Odyssey and Phantom Dust were amazing, but in hindsight, were they worth me getting those consoles? Not for me.

Ash let me borrow Tales of Hearts R. It is awesome. Xillia cannot get here soon enough.

Sony maybe, but I don't think Nintendo would. They're just now figuring out what the internet is :)
475  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: XBOX: A New Generation Revealed, May 21st on: June 19, 2013, 06:46:09 PM
I disagree completely. People saying "Microsoft heard our complaints." No they didn't, they heard market research and saw actual hard numbers saying "this is a bad idea." If the numbers had been in their favor, they'd still be trying to convince us that their policies offer "thousands of dollars in value" right now and trucking right along.

Complaints mean nothing if people still go and buy stuff. It's just fortunate for us that in this case, people actually backed up their complaints with their dollars. The two aren't always in sync.

I think it's important to remember that this probably wasn't a case of 'voices being heard.' it's pure business math. People voted with their wallets and the preorder numbers showed it. Notice how belligerent they were about it RIGHT until the numbers became available. Our voices weren't heard, our wallets were.
477  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: XBOX: A New Generation Revealed, May 21st on: June 19, 2013, 05:12:02 PM
I saw that news earlier. I can't wait for them to launch that. Hopefully it sets a precedent.

from the official post:

Quote
These changes will impact some of the scenarios we previously announced for Xbox One. The sharing of games will work as it does today, you will simply share the disc. Downloaded titles cannot be shared or resold. Also, similar to today, playing disc based games will require that the disc be in the tray.

In other words, it sounds like they're ditching the 10-person sharing plan, which was actually a neat idea. I hope that isn't the case.

Plus, Titanfall's on PC ;). I don't count it as a console exclusive if I can have it on PC, too, because I'll take the PC version over either console version any day of the week.

This is still pure good news, and you're right about this being a delicate marketing situation: by doing this, they've basically confirmed they're favoring their publisher-relations with their consumer relations, and this move was borne purely out "oh shit our Amazon preorder numbers* are horrible."

*my guess

EDIT:

Also thank you for mentioning The Last of Us. I love that game. It's why I'm invested in a PS4-- Sony's exclusive developers have always appealed to me more.

I think you're underestimating the price difference.

On the one hand, it's a victory for consumer rights. On the other hand, it's clear exactly which team they're playing for and whose rights they prioritize first. It's great from a competition standpoint. You're right that the hardcore gamers are a subset, and the average dude won't care about the backpedaling or messaging, but they WILL care very much about the $100 difference in price.

As I said early, for me having only played maybe 2-3 games on my XB and XB360, I will definitely not be buying this console. They could price it the same as Sony and give me free cupcakes every time I turn it on (which, if 360 is any indication, would be once a year) and I still wouldn't want it. There is nothing in the lineup that interests me, and between the product messaging and the 360's complete dearth of RPGs (because most RPGs aren't the CoD-level jillion-selling cash-cows that Microsoft and their corporate publisher pals are desperate for) suggests to me that the case will be no different this time.

Nonetheless, them dropping some of these restrictions is absolutely a good thing, and I'm pleased that they went this route, even if it was very begrudgingly.
