I'm pretty sure that... oh, here you go:

Castle Fantasia (+Renewal)
If you follow the path for freedom, you end up doing a chain of onslaught missions where the country's military is trying to kill your group before you desert and flee by sea.
The difficulty goes way up (hardest in the whole game) and a special background song starts playing. It's the first and only voiced song in the game.
It's a really incredible experience as you fight the kingdom's oppression against terrible odds.
I've never felt as 'engaged' in a game's moment as this one

The song (if you consider playing the game, don't listen - keep the magic for that moment): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b7xqCWy-EW8

Castle Fantasia 2 Renewal
When you battle the magic armors trying to run away from the continent by boat. It's a very intense moment that they decided to couple with a great song.
Up to that point in the game, the only song with vocals is the game's introduction song.
You fight wave after wave of really harsh magical power armors (crazy strong)
and then you start hearing this: http://www.mediafire.com/?ue6z9ijk58tf0bs

That path is incredible because the only thing you want at this point is for you and the people close to you to live.
It's such a basic desire for an RPG that it really hits home and the difficulty skyrocketing is making it very hard to accomplish even such a simple thing.

Double because apparently IGN has gameplay!


(if you watched the anime short, this won't spoil anything new)

Gald: 99,100
*turn in quest*
Gald 299,100
Gald: 259,100
Gald: 101,400
Gald: 99,400

They should just tell you that you can't have more than X,000 gald in your pockets instead so that she doesn't bother you after every battle until you go under the determined amount.

First of all, The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya is my personal favorite anime movie of all time, and Steins;Gate is the best anime series of all time.  How anyone would rather talk about "50 Identical Magical Girls: The Movie" over those staggers my imagination.

But really, opinions are opinions. I'm sure PreCure has objectively good and interesting attributes.

It's 40...
Haven't you been listening?

Well yes, I do means PS3 can't with that level of graphics.
The PS4 would certainly be able to but as you said, dev laziness may make it so that even the PS4 would not have been able to.
66  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of PlayStation(s) revealed on: September 16, 2015, 03:18:24 PM
As someone else said, the 30 FPS is because there is a PS3 version, PS4 version and PC version.

It's obvious that 60 FPS can't be done on PS3 and not certain it could be done on PS4 either.
Thus, animation was framed for 30 FPS and you can't really bump that to 60 because everything would go twice as fast.

You could make a case that consoles (at least the PS3 version) held back the game.

Is Haruhi even a good return on investment anymore?

Endless 8 did horribly.
Disappearance isn't doing that great either.

Zesty is:
4K / 30 FPS on PC
1080p / 30 FPS on PS4

There was a taunt move you could get somewhere on the grid that worked reliably against everything but bosses/mini-bosses.
The taunt worked against Yazma, so that was pretty nice.

And you're not running around as the Bow Girl all the time (other than the parts where she's forced out of your party) because....?

Flute playing.
71  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Star Ocean 5 on: September 15, 2015, 08:09:02 PM
I'm honestly letting go of all reigns with respect to the battle system.  It's tri-Ace, I have faith (oh, I've never play IU though...and hopefully it's not Radiata Stories levels of simple).

IU combat makes no sense at all. Everything gets in the way of everything.
Want to use an item? You have to go through the main menu (think Tales of menu) and the game doesn't pause and there's no 'hotkey' functionality for anything item related.
Enemy in the distance? You have to switch to bow girl EVERY SINGLE TIME for the ENTIRE GAME to get the first strike advantage.
Capel's flute playing makes him drop out of combat pretty much... why would you do that on the main character? You knew that people hated Souffle/Peppita's dancing for that very reason.

I'd rant so more but I'll stop here because...

Most people would assume that the sharpest blade possible equals the best shave, but Gillette® Fusion ProGlide with New FlexBall Technology makes maximum contact* over contours and gets virtually every hair.
It’s Gillette's #1 razor on sensitive skin.

I kind of agree with Mecharobot here: while I like the battles in Pretty Cure*, my favorite episodes tend to focus more on the development of the characters and their day-to-day lives. It's the same thing with when I watched Power Rangers, really - I didn't just sit through 15 minutes of Rocky dealing with his sudden gaming addiction just so I could watch the 5 minutes of action at the end, I honestly enjoyed the tale and the lessons it presented at least as much as the fighting, if not moreso.

Yeah, this is pretty much what I mean when I say skip and why I compared it to Power Rangers.
You can just skip the middle of the episode with the shoehorned battle unless the battle is actually interesting (some are, but a lot are just checking a checkbox on a checklist kinda thing).
I mean, it just gets really old when they do it for 48 episodes.
74  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: September 14, 2015, 11:52:27 PM
Some of the series try something interesting.
On 50 episodes, maybe a dozen are good so you don't really watch the full thing (these things are filler filled like DBZ... wait no... Power Rangers would be closer).

From the ones I can talk about:
Heartcatch tried really hard to be as little like any other Precure as possible and it actually ended up pretty great. It also has a (retired) grandmother Precure.
GoGo! had an interesting cast with a pretty nice 6th addition (+ the xenophile romances are hilarious)
Dokidoki was ok. I skipped a lot of episodes on this one though. Cure Sword would be the best thing here.
Happiness tried to replicate Heartcatch and succeeded somewhat. It also has major characters that are guys for once.

I couldn't watch the first one either. It really is shit.

The movies are good because they take the best of each serie and put it together in a compressed less bullshit format.
The more recent ones also have pretty great 3D in some scenes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4s0j_kvGIBA&feature=youtu.be&t=68 (<-- Dice, watch this)

About Heartcatch:

You felt like a pedophile?


EDIT: Since we're on the subject of Precure + creepy, "Yes! Pretty Cure 5 GoGo!" is the best serie because 3 of the Precure get fairy boyfriends.
So you have to consider that one day, these guys are gonna get some:
