I can't really argue with that, I'm just curious how they were different.
32  Media / RPGFan Music Discussion / Re: Xenoblade X OST on: May 24, 2015, 09:39:32 PM
I gave it a listen this afternoon, and the best I can come up with is ... "Meh".

I don't mind that kind of electronic music but there's a distinct lack of variety in the soundtrack, particularly in the first two discs.

The third is better and the last is the best, but it's not saying much.

I wasn't expecting the Xenoblade themes to be redone - but I expected more creativity, and it just wasn't there to me.

Far too much repetition of style and genre. I think some of the songs might have been better without lyrics (And no, I'm not a fan of Black Tar either)

The only two real standout tracks are NLA Shigai on Disc 3 and X-BT3 on Disc 4.

Pretty big disappointment considering the quality of Xenoblade's sountrack.

They should have stuck with what worked and used the last game's composers.

TLDR: I don't mind that they used electronic music - but it kind of all sounds the same. There isn't as much variety in the music as there could have been.

In no particular order:

1) Lunar: Silver Star [Sega CD ver - MUCH better music; darker plot than "Complete"]

How is the plot different?
34  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Top 10 RPGs Poll on: May 22, 2015, 04:30:09 PM
Not sure if they have to be in order:

1. Suikoden 2
2. Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne
3. Nier
4. Grandia 1
5. Shadow Hearts
6. Legend of Mana
7. Final Fantasy 9
8. Xenoblade
9. Skies of Arcadia: Legends
10. Pool of Radiance

I would have but it's $60 in Canada.

The new Atlus tax plus publishers fucking over Canada on game prices means I won't be getting this for quite a while.

Just finished a rewatch of Star Trek TNG for the first time in many, many years.

Held up better than I expected and even some of the episodes from the first two seasons aren't bad, but there were a lot of boring episodes and the series really only picks up steam once Roddenberry died and they started doing some longer, more serialised stories like with the introduction of the Cardassians and Bajor.

DS9 is still the best Trek.

I saw Avengers tonight.

I liked it overall, and it was actually a little better than I was expecting.

There were no eye-roll inducing moments like the first one and I liked that it was a little bit more introspective.

However, I'm not sorry that Whedon is leaving and we're getting the guys from Cap 2, because I loved that movie.

I have faith in them to deliver a good sequel(s).

Faith in gaming, restored.

I don't understand why they don't do a tv series of this.

They could easily make this a BSG style series and have the seasons have long arcs. It's perfect for it.

Then again, it's already been done and better than it ever will be as a live action series.

I finally sat down and watched all 3 seasons of the original Star Trek.

Man, there is a lot of crap.

Certain things are interesting like how the series initially sets up a crewman as Kirk's potential gf before they decided to make him into a womaniser.

I didn't remember Scotty being in charge of the ship as much as he was.

Kirk and McCoy could be real dicks to Spock.

There are genuinely good episodes but there are so many episodes where they just magically go back in time or find an Earth like planet that emulates some part of Earth history, it's just ridiculous.

Does not hold up nearly as well as I expected.

I'm playing Devil Survivor Overclocked and it's *way* better than I expected.

I'm on Day 4 and the broad strokes of SMT plots are certainly there.

Edit - the game has crashed *twice* on me in the last hour during hard battles when I try and analyse memory cards. Not impressed at all.

Now I'm not sure if I'll play the DS version of DS2 right after or if I'll pick up the 3DS version.

I really can't justify $60 ($65 with tax) for a handheld game though.

What do you guys think of the last few seasons of South Park compared to the rest of the seasons?

Not perfect, but pretty funny and pretty consistent overall.

I think their ability to edit their programs quickly now helps them stay topical, which is to their advantage.

Just to be contrarian, the Beatles are the exception to the rule.

Their early stuff was pop fluff - the equivalent of boy band fodder.

And they finished with their best album - Abbey Road. (Let It Be was released after but recorded before)

For the big MGS fans, how do you feel that Konami vows to continue the series after Kojima leaves?

Are you happy there will be more MGS or are you let down that they'll never wrap it up and a convoluted story will go on forever?

It's been wrapped up with MGS4.

I haven't gotten around to MG Rising yet, but that's the game that seems to continue the story.

If they let Platinum do it? I might not be so upset. It's a wait and see at this point.
45  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: FF8 am i the only one who dislikes it so much? on: March 26, 2015, 07:13:29 PM
FF8 is by far the worst game, if only for its god awful, insult to intelligence story.

The fact they all magically forgot they were muppet babies together and the villain was their nanny was the only time I have rage quit a game because of its plot.

Truly, truly awful.
