Alright. Then name or link one memorable track from FFXIII-2 (that wasn't one of those goofy Death Metal tracks). Go on, I'll wait.
I'm not going to play that game. I respect everyone's opinion about the series but sometimes the hate gets ridiculous.
Alright. But to be fair, I too, am well aware of the fact that Uematsu's past his musical prime barring some kind of random musical experimental success.
Plus, I genuinely don't remember much from the game's soundtrack beyond the completely out-of-place J-Death Metal, and the fact that at one point during the LP of the game I was watching, the LPers decided to play some Xenoblade music over the game's (due to the boredom of grinding to MAXIMUM POWAR!!!). The game just seem to play it incredibly safe outside of the Death Metal, just like it did with the gameplay (outside of the platforming) by adopting towns, NPCs, collectathons, time travel, reducing playable caricatures from 6 to 2, and adding recruitable monster party members.
