Four years of work later and we have some [beta] screenshots for SC.
God, cosmos, mytholigical and divine figures...Bless XSeed for the work they do.  It is appreciated even if it's niche.  But I hope the hard work will pay off.

I get to go to work frustrated today thanks to Birth by Sleep's Ice Cream Beat mini-game, the worst rhythm game known to man as far as I'm concerned. Worst part is while I had a bit of trouble with Terra, I had no trouble at all with Ventus, but now I can barely even get past the beginner level of Destiny Islands with Aqua.

I hate that stage so much. The slow speed combined with the weird timing for correct button presses makes rapid sequences almost impossible to time correctly. Either that or the game just sometimes decides not to register a button press or two during those parts, which I'm partially convinced of.

Honestly, besides the adorable aesthetic, everything about Disney World (or whatever it's called in-game) is awful.  I'm pretty sure Mario Kart for the SNES was more intuitive than that hack racing game in there.  The rhythm game is about as responsive as your thumb turning into a full concrete brick and trying to time it right.

I am surprised to see people hating Tri-Ace my impression was that people really like the Valkyrie Profile (they have metacritic scores of 81 and 84) games and Star Ocean 2 and 3 (80 metacritic).

They've made good games. It is not that they are Compile Heart or something (although CH reedemed themselves to some extent lately with Fiery Fencer)

Seriously, I'm a little disappointed at some of hate in here. Tri-Ace didn't tell the greatest stories or anything, but gameplay-wise, the Valkyrie Profile and Star Ocean games were a blast to play.
And yeah, Tri-Ace being lumped in with Compile Heart is a little much (no offense to any CH fans, I like some of their stuff)

I'm not seeing this catering-to-Westerners mindset, either. If you look at the games that Tabata's directed (like Crisis Core and 3rd Birthday) his style is generally more "grounded" than most FF games.

New Concept Art:

I always thought FF8's Esther was cool and tragically underexplored.  This FF15 place reminds me of it, looks fantastic, and hopefully promises some sights worth seeing

Leonard Nimoy died today :(

Sad news indeed. At least he lived a long life and prospered. May he rest in peace. Somewhere in space, his star is shining bright.

Thanks to a 3 day weekend and a sick day yesterday I finally made it to the Black Citadel in DQVIII (71 hours in).  I love DQ (all the characters are so damned likable!), but the repetitiveness of the gameplay and the shallowness of the narrative have gotten a bit exhausting by the end.  I haven't even bothered to get past rank B in the monster arena and I've barely used the alchemy pot at all in order to speed things up. 

The game actually reminds me a lot of a medieval version of Rogue Galaxy (another Level 5 title) except that I liked RG's story/minigames/item creation a lot better and I think DQ characters are more fleshed out/relatable/not moronic.  It IS still DQ though, so I'm not sure how much depth I was really expecting. 

I think I'm going to try and replay Resonance of Fate next (and actually finish it this time).  I guess it'll be my requiem for Tri-Ace. That and I really need a change of scenery after almost 7 weeks with DQ and I think the RoF fits that bill perfectly.
