• Due to datamining of the demo files, substantial leaks are now everywhere. As a reminder, some of these are in-development screenshots and may point to events that aren't going to be in the final game. Some of them are clearly going to be in the game. The TLS stance is this: Any thread which will contain discussion on the leaked images/ details must clearly contain [SPOILERS] within the title. Anything within those threads does not need to be spoiler tagged. Any POST anywhere on the board containing spoilers must be spoiler tagged or it will be removed and warned. Please report this where you see it. Let's try to make sure everyone can still freely post until everyone has a chance to play this game please!

    What is the business of post-meteor Shinra?

    I wouldn't even say Rufus' compassion comes out of nowhere in Case of Shinra if you take BC into account. Rufus starts of BC being the financial backer of AVALANCE, the Turks' main antagonists. He also is pretty much responsible for the Turks old leader Veld being fired and hunted down by...

    Any interest in doing a FFVIIR response contest?

    In my particular case, I don't believe in spoilers, so I'm sure I'll watch streams of people playing it and whatnot. I also know I won't be able to say how I think about the gameplay aspect until I can actually play the thing, but that's never been the main focus of FF games either for me.

    Any interest in doing a FFVIIR response contest?

    My one caviat about this is that FFVIIR is only releasing on PS4 in April. Those of us who don't have PS4s are going to be waiting an entire year to play the game for reals. As opposed to just watching other people play it and form opinions based on that. And that can effect how the game feels...

    FFVII Remake Frustration Expression Thread (spoilers are probably here)

    I mean... I saw ACC before I ever played the game... And like... one of the worst changes ACC made to the Compilation from an art standpoint was making everything very bland to the point of being monochrome. It... dumbed down a lot of the way the OG visually "popped" in a general sense. Mainly...

    FFVIIR Official Concept Art & Twitter Whatnots

    All the FFXIV books get released in both Japanese and English (even if the English pre-orders start later). So maybe they'll do an English version this time?

    FFVII Remake Frustration Expression Thread (spoilers are probably here)

    Like I said... on an intellectual level, I get what they are trying to do with the new opening. From an emotional level, I don't think it works. Too many "set the stage" type cut-scenes use a long pan into the city where the story takes place to introduce the setting. It emotionally does...

    Locke & Key totally got a Netflix series that releases on Feb 7th!

    I've seen half (first five episodes) of this. Thoughts so far... While it's obviously got elements of horror in it, the characters don't act like they are in a horror show/movie. The scenes of the kids playing around with the keys feel like what kids would do if they got their hands on...

    There's a bigger time skip between season 2 and season 3 than season 1 and 2. The interpersonal relationships are a lot different.

    FFVIIR Official Concept Art & Twitter Whatnots

    I have very mixed feelings on the new opening. On the one hand, there is a lot of very cool world-building being done to contrast the barrenness of the land outside Midgar with Midgar itself. On the other hand, everyone knows how FFVII opens. The star field turning into mako fumes and the...

    Saw the first episode of this. Very nice premise so far. Very nice cinematography too. Definitely finishing the series. Thanks for the rec X!

    First taste of Remake BGM

    I'm not going to say much... Just that, you should go look up what people thought of the "ageless" art form that is classical music (and all the other music styles that are lumped in with it) at the time it was considered the "modern music" of the era. People wrote more or less the same thing...

    First taste of Remake BGM

    @cold_spirit Thank you for linking that!!!! That album has some really good poetry and interpretations of characters and settings in it too. It bears mentioning that Umetsu himself has called One-Winged Angel a "rock piece". And essentially thought of it as creating a '60s or '70s rock song...

    Star Wars: Episode 7, 8... and BEYOND!

    Hopefully. This is my biggest beef with the Jedi in the PT. They are amazingly bad at it. Specifically at recognizing the lack of it in other people and helping them get more emotionally balanced.

    First taste of Remake BGM

    Scorpion Sentinel is so far the only battle theme that sounds anywhere in the right ballpark for me. Which makes it too bad as it's a variation of "Bombing Mission". It really makes me wonder why it's the only released song in this style so far... The others sound much "weaker" then it.

    First taste of Remake BGM

    The really funny thing is that all the music arranged by Umetsu we've heard in the game so far has been from ACC. All of which features heavy use of electronic music. YMMV on if that's good thing or not. The argument is not that the string orchestra shouldn't be there. The argument is that...

    FFVII Remake Frustration Expression Thread (spoilers are probably here)

    Current complaint about the music... It fails the "Grab my attention in 60sec" metric I have for video-game music. Like it or not... video-game music tracks are not listened to for long periods of time usually and when they are listened to, there's a lot of other stuff on screen competing for...
