Look, can we just agree we'd all be happier if Motorhead did the song for FF13 and leave it at that?

They lost their metal magic long ago.If anything I wanted the Western FFXIII soundtrack to be composed by the London Philharmonic or the San Francisco Philharmonic.

Still the game sountrack not the main theme is what matters most.I am sure FFXIII will have plenty of songs I will always remember

I don't like Motorhead, so no.

Blasphemy!

A line like "Beee myy frieend" in the jPop one does about as much for me as Leona Lewis' track fitting in with the rest of what we hear in the West.  Nevertheless, I think it works and suits the more typical Western audience (that wouldn't take a bullet and go down for Japan despite never setting a foot in it...the fucken "Nautards" of the west as they call it).

I'm more upset at the lack of gameplay footage.  Each trailer thus far has given for minutes of emotional character drama, and less than a minutes worth of battle. =(

Speaking of which, I pre-ordered the OST. Why? Because I love Masashi Hamauzu and his presence is necessary in my room. That said . . . . I've officially decided to play it on the 360.

BUT THEN YOU'LL HAVE TO SUBJECT YOURSELF TO THE HORRIBLE WORLD OF DISC SWAPPING

THE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE WORLD OF DISC SWAPPING

HORRIBLE HORRIBLE

HORRIBLE

(I'm exaggerating how much that complaint bugs me, but it comes up a lot in dual-system releases. I'd much rather not have mandatory installs or chuggy framerates thanks to the low read-speed of Blu-Ray, over having to get up off my LAZY GAMER ASS ONCE EVERY DOZEN HOURS TO PUSH EJECT AND SWAP A DISC.)

Disc swaps are convenient. Prepare a snack time, go use the bathroom - all of those necessities that come with hardcore gamingz.

Yes, how DARE they put The Lord of the Rings on multipul discs (cuz that's about the equivalent). And, of course, noone watches Lawrence of Arabia anymore, because of the multipul tape/disc thing.

Seriously guys, a lot of my favorite games are multipul discs. They allow for a clear segmentation of the game that I can think back on, years later. When I talk about FF8 or FF9, if anyone asks me where any particular section is, I can very clearly remember on which disc it was on (by nature of the plot) and then I know about how far into the game it is... very useful for human memory management. FFX wasn't too bad due to its linearity, but FFXII is a complete dog trying to remember the order of everything that happened, had it been broken up into chunks, I may have been able to keep track of it better.

I prefer multipul discs... there... I said it.

Thirded.  Uematsu, while good, is overrated.
If in comparison, I thought Hamazu's tracks in FFX overpowered Uematsu's by far.

Bingo, although I never chalked that up to Uematsu being overrated, I just thought he lost his edge after FF9. Hamauzu seems to have taken up the banner where other composers have fallen short. Uematsu was my favorite video game composer, hands down, but the torch has officially been passed.

I think even by FF9 he'd lost it.

He came up with a good theme for it, and then just used the same theme over and over and over again.

FFX's soundtrack was a real breath of fresh air.

The only game i remember mostly because of the sound is FF9 D8<, even more, for me is the ff with best soundtrack so far

Actually, the developers have said that the PS3 version won't require an install and they've managed to minimize load times, and I doubt we'll have a chuggy framerate since the game was developed originally for the PS3 and SE knows they can't botch the only version that will be in Japan. Hell, when HAS the speed of the disc drive actually determined the FPS? Installing to the hard drive for the 360 games doesn't fix frame rate issues they may have, and each case I can think of for the PS3 can more likely be blamed on bad coding or a bad attempt at taking advantage of the PS3; Dragon Age for example has higher quality textures, so if the game isn't poorly coded then it could be that processing the larger amount of data required for those textures slows the game down, must like when you switch texture quality settings in a PC game.

Also: Star Ocean 4 has shown that you can really botch disc swapping, and from the sound of things Baldur's Gate required fairly frequent disc swapping. Depending on how FFXIII divides up the data it could easily have the same problem, and failing that the track record for 360 game packaging has been abysmal. I could always just move the discs to another disc binder, but it's kind of annoying when the case the game came in should be able to serve well enough.
