#12023186 RPG Thread XIX is getting a rhythm game spinoff

Posted by R. Kasahara on 20 August 2014 - 04:46 AM

Started Crimson Shroud this evening; partly in the hopes that it's short enough so I can get through it before PAX. Pretty neat so far. It's so Matsuno as far as the writing and world goes, and a Sakimoto/Basiscape soundtrack's always a plus.


#11997898 The Video Game Soundtrack Deals Thread (OP Updated 08/10/14)

Posted by R. Kasahara on 10 August 2014 - 07:02 PM

Has anybody heard word about an official Destiny soundtrack?  I'd buy that up in a second and I'd prefer a formal release rather than rips found on the internet.


Couldn't find any info about an OST on either the offical site or VGMdb. One of the composers, Martin O'Donnell, was fired from Bungie earlier this year, so that might be complicating a potential OST release (if he retains any rights to the music).

Past that decision branch point in Every SMT Game Strange Journey that will pretty much determine what ending I'll get. Also, given that pretty much each new sector gets bigger and more complicated, I really wish I could take notes right on the map like in Etrian Odyssey.
 

But Cecil is SO dreamy.  :drool: And I still think he's less emo than Squall (or at least has a more valid reason for hating himself).


Dreaminess quotient: Squall >>> Cecil

I believe I clarified this to you before ;)

There's a preview of the Solid Snake Nendo up on one of the official GSC blogs. It shows an optional faceplate that has to be seen to be believed - http://mikatan.goods...id-solid-snake/


#11966550 Last-Gen clinging and delayed next gen games rant

Posted by R. Kasahara on 29 July 2014 - 11:49 PM

Less than a year is "a long time"?

There's always a transition period between console gens that lasts at least a year or two, particularly since not everyone upgrades to the latest machines right away. (Unrelated, but some of the best previous-gen exclusives come out during those times, too.)

Given that triple-A games are so expensive to make these days, it's good business sense to release multiplatform games on previous-gen consoles for the time being if those ports wouldn't be too much of a pain to make. Think of it as the equivalent of triple-A PC games which have low minimum system requirements, for those many, many people who have older computers that are slower than the latest and greatest, but still work well enough.

Mario Nendoroid confirmed.




#11920963 Spoilers: How do you (if you do) recover when someone accidentally spoils a M...

Posted by R. Kasahara on 14 July 2014 - 12:46 AM

I don't know how to hide spoilers in this forum.  I would like to post it so that those who have read the book can tell me if it's really worth it to continue.


Use spoiler tags! The code is [ spoiler ]Text goes here.[/ spoiler ] (remove the spaces)

As for spoilers, I generally hate 'em, but strangely, if the series/game/whatever is good enough, they're less of a factor in the end. For example, I got this spoiler for Evangelion before I finished the series:
Spoiler


This really annoyed me at the time. However, Eva has since become one of my favorite anime series. Same goes for Gurren Lagann, which I was spoiled for regarding
Spoiler


On the flipside, I was spoiled for
Spoiler
prior to playing Final Fantasy X, and I believe that most certainly affected my enjoyment of that game.

I also actively seek out basic plot synopses if I suspect that something I'm interested in might contain content that would offend or otherwise annoy me, but that happens rarely.

So, it varies, but in general, I try my damndest to avoid them. Like you, I'm pretty sensitive to them, especially when it comes to a game/series/etc. that I'm currently enjoying.

You "borrow" games from your husband? Strait up take that shit girl. You married. What's his is yours.


Hah, true, but this game was originally a birthday present (from me) and I did overwrite all his old saves yesterday, so it does feel like borrowing :lol:

Lemme know and I'll make it my next DS game. 
 
I've been doing a terrible job at playing my games.


Started it today :)

Just to warn you, there's some 40+ minutes of cutscenes/dialogue/etc. before you even set foot in the first dungeon.

2014 is officially halfway over.
 
and I still havent played MKR or Dragon Force
 
:cry:
 
I've done a disservice to the #yearoftheSaturn


It's all good. I'm only two in with my play-lots-of-backlogged-MegaTen-games dealie  :-| 

I think Strange Journey is going to be the next one for me, btw.

I think I'm right before the final boss battle in Devil Survivor!

The penultimate battle took a few tries, though. Yuzu and her demons-- and pretty much just them-- ended up taking out the boss in that one within a handful of turns o_O;;;

I understand where you're coming from, but have you ever tasted something that was so good that you don't even think of sharing it with anyone? Especially when you were a kid? That's Nanako's Big Bromlette in a nutshell :3 It also lends the MC's cooking skillz an air of mystery amongst his friends, which is humorous in its own way.

Posted by R. Kasahara on 13 June 2014 - 03:19 PM

Congrats!
 

This is a slight other gripe is when the MC creates the Omelette but only Nanako tries it out and not his friends.  I would have liked to see some feedback from them even if it was minimal.


That's a strange thing to have a gripe about, especially since the omelets were made for Nanako. Did you think that she's that biased toward her cousin? o.O;

Our resident BlueShinra just went through that version of the game herself so she should be able to offer some advice whenever she comes around.


I still have all my P4 (PS2) save files, so I'll take a look later at what skills, levels, etc. my team had for that fight. I do remember that my team was Teddie, Kanji, and Yukiko. I think there was a certain piece of equipment that helped a lot, and like Indignate said, you need a decent amount SP replenishing items (I usually try to hoard them as much as possible for these sorts of SMT/Persona bosses). IIRC, I didn't beat him on the first try, but I did on the second or third; the Bewildering Fog threw me off at first as well.

Oh, and welcome to the thread :)
