I loved this game in arr. However I'm starting to feel like some of you. This regearing every patch makes me feel overwhelmed. Sadly, I don't even feel the desire to try and keep up. I haven't cancelled yet, but I'm on the verge.

Yeah, I hate the gear treadmill in the game. I love all the content and the storyline, but just mindlessly grinding with no chance of something exciting happening during the grind to get slightly higher stats that don't change my play style in any way is usually why I don't get into the endgame. It feels like work "I gotta sign on today to do dailies and run a roulette and earn my salary so in a week I can invest."

I have not said much here in a while but I am following along and it fills my heart with glee.

I think "planning" and development have to be separated here. Otherwise, by that logic, Persona 5 has been in development since 2009 because the team said then that they were working on concepts for it. The game WAS scrapped basically entirely like three years ago, so while Square Enix did fall prey to announcing it too soon, it's not really the same game anymore anywa.

I just don't get how people don't understand that-- all the 'IT HAS BEEN IN DEVELOPMENT FOR TEN YEARS' and 'IT LOOKED BETTER BEFORE WTF' seem to miss that XV and Versus aren't the same game. Same characters, same concept (as you mentioned), but a totally new game built on that. Started like, three years ago, not ten. Marketing snafu for sure, but people just really want to believe this game has been in active development for ten years.

Also that Leviathan art hngh

I also love Mitsuda. If I were to pick a composer, I'd pick Shimomura. Her string work is already amazing so arrangements of them could be wonderful.

+1 on the album love!

I'm torn. On the one hand, I do not think they should explain away EVERYTHING in the game before it comes out (I want to be surprised!0, but on the other hand, man that presentation was anemic.

I don't want them to show off the villain. I want to be surprised, damn it.

I'm not a fan of most of this game's inspirations and generally not a huge Tri-Ace fan (End of Eternity go go go) but this looks great. Can't wait.

Yes but there's a poll for 'which DLC characters do you want' so unless we actually think Nintendo is straight up IGNORING that poll and mocking the people who participated, they'll be in.

Plus, Isaac has no reppage. His assist trophy was removed.

And yes, I do. Very much :) Because I am a bad human.
72  Media / General Games / Re: Super Smash Bros. Namdai on: July 30, 2015, 06:28:15 PM
Actually I think that's mistaken. I'd be willing to bet this costume is a precursor to him actually being in the game. He's the top-voted character on the ballot and most unofficial ballots.

More importantly though is that we add Isaac who is often tied for first/second.

It would be ridiculous if they just decided to completely ignore the ballot.

You should join me and Mike and my roommate, I'm always trying to get the former to play more.

While it's not a super easy recommendation, if you have custom firmware on your PSP, there IS a patch that gets rid of the slowdown. I'm using it now, and it's fantastic.

There's also a patch that inserts the War of the Lions translation and content into the PS1 version, which is pretty cool.

Thanks so much for starting a discussion here! I'm a slacker and totally forgot-- but I am sure the creators would be delighted to know you decided to pick up the album!

I'm a huge fan of it. The Skyrim tunes really capture what I like about the tone of that soundtrack without quite the same tedium I find in the original material.

I love love love the Trisection arrangement, and I think alongside Secunda and Eternity, it's among my favorites on the album. Truthfully though, I really do like every piece.

Barron's original song, The Forest of Awakening, is also really excellent, and showcases that he's not only a skilled arranger.

The performances in each track are equally excellent. I know this seems to be a whole lot of positive without much critique, but I have been listening to this all day at work and really enjoy it.

Also, they covered Heroes of Mana and Eruyt from FFXII, so wins all around. In fact, the track selection in general is excellent!
