World of Goo (not an RPG, but Taelus did say "anything" and it is so goo-d), seriously, this is required listening (Kyle Gabler)
The entire soundtrack

1: The original PSP version of this song is a little better in my opinion, but it wouldn't technically count as a 2014 selection.
2: This IS the original PSP verson, simply because more than half of the song was cut out in the Evo remake to make room for the new credits theme.


I know this is probably too much, and probably is a bit over-saturated with Falcom. I did my best to pick good stuff, though!

what am I doing with my life

Monster Kingdom: Jewel Summoner - Battle Theme

This is much more in line with Ito's final boss themes (especially this one) than anything else.

On a completely unrelated note.

If you love JRPGs, especially those with complex stories, you pretty much have to play this game.

If you love JRPGs and are fluent in Japanese you have no excuse for not playing this game (and the other five games that come after it). They consistently get virtually everything right.

Trails in the Flash



Can we stop using that awful, nonsensical "translation" already?

And "Trails in the Zero" and "Trails in the Blue" (should be Azure) and "Nayuta in the Sky" (which is just ludicrous, though I have never seen anyone else use it.) ("Kiseki" means "trails" not "sky"!) (And "no" is closer to "of" than "in the"!)

Wonder Flick's music is amazing and I encourage you all to go download it, even if only for that reason and even if it's only in Japanese and only on iOS/Android.
8  Media / The Soundroom / Re: Random VGM on: May 19, 2014, 12:00:34 PM
Romancing SaGa 3 has so many amazing battle themes. It's a shame Ito doesn't compose much any more.

Battle Theme
Boss Theme
Pet Capture
Magical Tank Battle
Four Demon Nobles I
Occult Castle Battle
Four Demon Nobles II
Last Battle

Of course, now that I've said it, my inner pessimist is telling me that the whole Dragon MC is a smoke screen for the eventual typical JRPG idiot-hero harem-lead stealth-protagonist. Especially when I look at the "Dragon's" first and last name and think "Dragons typically don't have a first and last name." (also, its a dragon with a sword that's probably going to become the MC's sword once he becomes a real boy).

Don't say it, don't say it! Not the H-word! ;_;

Kouryuu could very well be some sort of title. That's what I'm choosing to believe: it's a title.
Well, "kouryuu" written with those kanji literally means glimmering/shining/etc dragon. (Probably shining in this case...) In addition, the fact that it's written with kanji at all makes it very likely to be a title and not a first name. You just don't see names that mix kanji and kana like that.

I've been working on Romancing Saga 3. Having not played any of the other games in the series first, it was initially a little confusing but I think I have the hang of it now.

Also, I do not know of any other RPG where you get to recruit a lobster martial artist. Or do this.well except maybe ff7 but this came first

What'd you think of the
Quote
Celestial meta-twist and its implications?


Freaked out a bit first, I was wondering why my 3DS was extra reflective. 

But I actually liked it.  Somewhat reflexive of us playing games, wasn't it?
Code:
"You mingle with lesser creatures. Feign sentiment. You revel in others' bloodshed, and weep at the death of idols... Has this little charade served to ease your weariness?"

I thought it was a pretty cool idea.
Wait,
Quote
does he actually say that? And this twist also explains the summons' designs and the floating debris in the final dungeon.
12  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Falcom's Brandish coming stateside? on: May 08, 2014, 02:18:17 AM
Yes, but it's supposed to be much better. It still does the weird rotating the entire screen when you turn though.
That's Brandish's thing. You can't get rid of that.

Anyway, this is great news! It'd definitely be a fairly easy game to translate, seeing as there's really not much text at all.
13  Media / The Soundroom / Re: Random VGM on: May 08, 2014, 02:13:25 AM

You know, I've always wanted to do something like this, but with a whole bunch of songs from various different series. I have nowhere near enough familiarity with this kind of thing, though...

Anyway for those who don't mind aural spoilers, Child of Light's final boss and ending themes are just fantastic. Even if the ending itself isn't so great.

Anyway, I finished Child of Light, and... that's IT? There has to be a better ending than that...
15  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: May 04, 2014, 03:35:59 AM
I finished Rudra no Hihou. The final boss was absolutely insane; one of the hardest I've ever fought. I actually had to retry several times due to running out of MP-restoring items.

Now I can really get into Child of Light. I started it a while ago, but I have a hard time concentrating on two RPGs at once.
