I love that game and soundtrack. There's a fantastic remix with vocals, too, that Ramza introduced me to.

level ups only really increase your hp but I would consider it an rpg. Plus the way the characters shout when they cast magic is hilarious.

Oops, this is the version I meant to link:


And yes. I f'n love those songs. They are the middle and finale of my running playlist, and they do their job admirably.

Metal Gear Rising: Rules of Nature (Metal Gear RAY boss fight)
Metal Gear Rising: I'm My Own Master Now (Blade Wolf boss fight)
Metal Gear Rising: A Soul Can't Be Cut (regular battle theme in the last chapters)

Can't stop listening to this whole damn OST unless an SMT song happens to come up. (You guys seem to have SMT covered here.) I can't wait for IV and its soundtrack.

liz y u do dis

I only speak from the heart. Obviously this means our hearts are one.

And yeah-- while I'm not terribly into high-level MMO play or terminology, I DO appreciate a manageable challenge, especially with friends. It makes your victories sweeter. I really dig, for example, having to dodge Ifrit's attacks by not standing where, you know, death is about to spurt from. It demands a little more awareness than your average WoWMMO.

Great that you mention Aivi, Pat, because she's coming on Rhythm Encounter soon to talk music with us! She is incredibly talented. I love her work. The Black Box is a fantastic (though not STRICTLY game-related) album.

With them reiterating that this game will have a world map, the prospects of it being like Kingdom Hearts, and the fact that I definitely like the aesthetic... oh, and a Shimomura soundtrack-- I am very excited for this one.

I fucking hate gamers these days.  Not all, certainly the masse who feel self-entitled to just shit all over every/anything

Yeah. The level of cynicism takes all the fun out of enjoying games. RISE ABOVE IT

Going back to game music used on websites, this track from SMT3: Nocturne was used for the game's website along with the Lucifer's Call artwork showing the Demi-fiend with all the fiends, and it really impressed upon me the game's atmosphere and sense of mystical apocalypse. And due to the game's difficulty (which was amplified because of my lack of experience with the SMT franchise at the time), every time the track popped up in the game I knew that I was about to be fucked up.

I absolutely love that track. I also love the DDS2 version, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TcXOk3iKQa0

This is why I love SMT boss fights so much. Boss fights should have this much build-up, and you should be fighting for your life. <3

I think not supporting a company you don't like is a perfectly legitimate reason. It doesn't make you the South Park WoW-nerd to not want to give money to a company you dislike. As we've seen with XB1, speaking with your dollars is really the ONLY way to make a point.
Yes, but the reasoning behind the dislike can vary. This is why the "Worst Company in America" awards are bullshit.

True, but not buying products from a company doesn't mean you voted for them in that poll. I don't buy Chick-Fil-A because I don't support them, but I'm not about to go and report them to the BBB as an affront to business.

I'm not even referring to their business practices-- someone could really just take issue with their games and how they make them now. I could see that being a totally viable reason.

It's a good game. It's better with friends. You could do a lot worse with a beat-em-up. Also the translation is hilariously goofy.

This is a different enough topic to warrant keeping it. Are we supposed to move All VGM discussion to the random thread? This is a more specific conversation. Appreciate the effort to keep things clean, but the two threads are for different thing s.

I fucking love HyperDuck SoundWorks. Dust AET and Rain-Slick 4 are both brilliant soundtracks and ou can buy both on their loudr page! I'd link but doing that on my phone is a pain.

Man, it sure would be great if a super cool music podcast got to interview those crazy Ducks about their amazing music.
569  Media / The Soundroom / Re: Indie Game Music on: June 24, 2013, 12:56:45 PM
Music from Tiny and Big: Grandpa's Leftovers is pretty awesome. Some might c all it hipster, but I'd call them shut up

my only gripe with phase 3 was the difficulty on a few quests. very maat'esque with little room for error. except that we are talking about low level content here. the one with the chocobo egg was obviously trying to teach you something. but the one with the gargoyle and the masked mage was infuriating. made more so by the fact its a 2 part battle.

If your using the armory system and setting the right abilities (like Protect and Cure) these fights aren't hard at all. As long as your letting the main NPC beat on the boss and you focus on the adds, its pretty simple. For the gargoyle/mage fight, you have to focus and kill the Gargoyle first because he has way less HP, but does much more damage. Also, you have to pay attention to his TP moves, and the mage's spells. The difficulty is appreciated, because as you've said, each fight is trying to teach you something. I think it's refreshing to actually have to learn strategy for fights instead of the 99% faceroll content in MMOs these days. Yes, if you just run in guns blazing, you will get your ass handed to you, but if you follow some pretty basic rules (don't stand in the big glowy circle thingy) they're not that challenging.

ACtually, I agree. This is a big reason why I dont' enjoy most MMOs these days. It's all designed to be so damn easy that no one gets frustrated and quits. It was one of GW2's biggest faults (that and the whole "your bread and butter skills for the rest of the game are unlocked after two hours"), if you ask me. You could play that game PvE half asleep because of how streamlined everything was. Generally I'm a challenge-lover anyway, though, but I haven't found anything too difficult yet, but I do like that I have to actually pay attention, like with managing the thaumaturge's aether charges.
