556  Media / RPGFan Music Discussion / Re: RPGFan Music Podcast (Rhythm Encounter) Thread on: January 21, 2014, 06:53:01 PM
It's been a long time, but our latest episode is now posted.

Enjoy time-travel-centric themes for nearly three hours. :]

Don't forget to email us submissions for Music of the Year podcast, and of course rate and review us on iTunes!

Also, in 2014, be on the lookout for a newer format for the show-- shorter episodes (1 to 1.5 hours), but more frequently. It's a bit too much of a tax on my time these days to get our megasodes out in a timely fashion, so we're switching to this format. Be sure to give us feedback and let us know what you think about that change, so we can keep improving the show to match what you want to hear!

I think ARR's soundtrack is completely fantastic, and better than most of the 1.0 tracks. Most of the 1.0 tracks I like are still in the game. Best of both worlds.

Even with those said, I still couldn't get around the dialogue at all. Maybe it's because I'm more into personal stories like in the Shin Megami Tensei games and I can''t get around to stories such as Matsuno's stories and the Witcher series because they're too involved into open-ended political ramifications to the point where all of my personal engagement go out the door. They feel more like I'm reading my college history textbook than an actual story and god knows I don't want to be reminded of that.

I tend to find Matsuno's political/faction driven storylines more interesting and engaging than the standard fare.

They can provide an understandable framework for characters to react and develop without having to 'overreact' among themselves for motivation (I find most standard RPG interpersonal drama annoying, which is maybe why I can't really get into the persona games).

I'm glad I preordered it and the season pass, because like with the first one, I have over 200 hours on it :) I can't wait for BL3 :D

Not at all. I enjoyed them.

I can see being cautious about the developer, but Matsuno?  The guy practically created the modern SRPG and has an amazing resume.

That blows my mind.

I was just kidding by the way, everyone should send Dave all the gifts he knows what to do with.

Each of you who tweets Dave a coffee for that is going to be in big trouble when I get home.

Backed the moment I saw it. Vita stretch goal. Give me buttons or give me death.

Oh sorry-- I meant the Lighting Returns dog was slaying me. I'm well-versed in Rinoa's skulldoggery and hound-related cannoneering :D

On that note, I have to go laugh at that nightmare hound once more.

My complaint is you all scared Yggdrasil away and now I don't know any news on games

I LOLed. Ygg's posts were very info-heavy.

I am very proud to be a part of this community. Eloquent and classy. No flaming turds ruining the discussion. Even if we all disagree with each other, everyone manages to respect and acknowledge each other. Cheers RPGFan :)

Yeah, I wasn't too thrilled about an MMO winning game of the year. Perhaps I'm "old-fashioned" but I still think they belong in their own category, and that's it. Yes, I know it's stupid.
Am I right in remembering you guys doing a separate awards thing for music last year? Because I felt there was a sad lack of music awards. The best sound award was it. And that went to an MMO. I want to know what regular/ indie games have the best music, voices, overall sound, etc.
I haven't played 99.9% of the games that won awards so I can't really comment on that. I'm sure FFIV is great for what it is. It just seems like you guys went a little too gaga over it. Maybe someday I'll understand.


Music awards are coming-- and in expanded form over last year. Just give us a little time-- I've been putting together some good stuff for it :)

I also wholeheartedly endorse FFXIV for the GOTY award, having been one of the people who voted for it. It wasn't a 'let's do something different' or 'nothing else was good enough' type of thing. The fact is, a huge chunk of our staff thinks the game is fantastic and has enjoyed it more than any other game last year. There were tons of great games in 2013, but FFXIV was easily my favorite, and several others'. I was also disappointed by SMTIV, but I wasn't disappointed by Ni no Kuni because I always thought it was an incredibly average game with pretty graphcis and Joe Hisaishi music. Soul Sacrifice was awesome as well.

Whether you agree or disagree with the staff or reader awards, all that matters (if you ask me) is that last year was awesome for rad RPGs. I don't buy that "the JRPG is dead" business, either-- plenty of good ones come out, but I'm honestly quite happy that generic "ATTACK/MAGIC/ITEM/RUN" anime trope JRPGs are on the decline, because the vast majority of them are creatively bereft and no longer have the same magic for me that they did when I was 14 and much less experienced with them. There are still plenty of good ones, though, and last year proves it.

I'm also really pleased with the challenge and complexity of all the new content. Good times. Love the roulette, too.
