Happy new years friends! And nice to meet ya, Chronopower!
Rough years end for me. Dumb as it sounds, I've been so screwed up deciding whether or not to play tales of vesperia or ffxiii-2 I legitimately wasted my whole night last night.... back and forth, sampling and reading and deliberating... it took like 4 hours for me to figure out that I simply have a strong distaste for the "Nomura flavor" in a manner of speaking.
Seriously, every game that felt like a chore for me to play Mr. Nomura has worked on (or at the very lest been responsible for the visuals). I don't know how I missed this correlation in the past given what a rough time I had trying to "make myself" enjoy the latter FF's and Kingdom Hearts. Something about his work is just too slick for me. Like current western mainstream rock music to me.... it may sound good but it is just too "something" for me to actually like it (I really love early 90's rock personally).
Funny thing is, after all that deliberating, deciding on Tales and pretty much identifying the fact that no matter how hard I try, I just don't like the FFXIII franchise I'm still screwy and somewhat unresolved.
Good God am I messed up. LoL
