There's a large gap between Yoshi's Island and Smash Bros though. I assume Yoshi's Island can linger for a bit, releasing it at a time when people will be more apt to buy it. Smash Bros will be such a major release that they will probably want to get it out as quickly as possible once it's finished. Especially because it's a game that's supposed to move console (pr handheld in this case) units, so pushing that back could affect other games.

That's what Orchestration is. I used arranged for shorthand, because that's what people associate with the word. It's technically called orchestral adaptation.

Edit: Things like transposing notes for various instruments fall under that banner.

I believe those are just arrangements or orchestration, and that it's intentional. The BoF3 soundtrack is seriously lacking, so arranged versions of a song not showing up isn't a big surprise.

Anything off the Nier soundtrack. The game has one of the greatest soundtracks of all time, without a doubt.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZjAkolwZXhk - Tales of Xillia's Overflowing Nature, probably the only song in the game that I can say I absolutely adore.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QY6I-R4Nmz0 - Tales of Vesperia's Tragic Decision. All around solid.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPjJNGeKmf8 - Star Ocean 3's Highbrow - Sakuraba's masterpiece, just to round everything out.

I'll Face Myself -Another Version-

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKAycv7yWyc - The only issue is that the song's heard like twice in the game. Same song, but the piano and trumpet are switched.

That Harmony of Dissonance one is ridiculous. I have no clue what just happened.

I wish DS luck. Personally I'm the world's worst speedrunner, so I find it to be an impressive skill. Sometimes I check SDA just to watch terrible games like Back to the Future.

I've never particularly cared for tool-assisted runs. It's impressive if someone writes the tools, but I don't find it to be the same kind of skills as a speedrun.

So it's impressive, but not in the manner that a speedrun is supposed to be impressive, to me anyway.

While I'll gladly say that the online FF fanbase can be: Self-entitled, rude, snobbish, petty, vitriol-spewing jerks, I'm not sure how much weight that should actually carry. I legitimately don't know. The only thing I can say for certain, assuming everything is as it appears to be, is that; going around your team and releasing a patch is bad form, and not cool. And I think Square was in the right in protecting their IP. Especially if they'd made contact with the patch's author beforehand to work out a compromise.

I'm certainly not trying to bash anyone, especially because I don't know said person, and I certainly don't know the full circumstances. I'm also not trying to diminish the accomplishment, which I have never seen so I couldn't comment on it one way or another. That said, what happened during, and post patch release seems to be the issue.

Dragon's Crown is very much an homage to Capcom's D&D beat em ups. Very pretty game, although some people take issue with the character models, the gameplay and loot systems can't really be denied.

Not much like Guardian Heroes, but if you want beat-'em-ups with RPG elements, then the Yakuza series. Plus, more content than you can shake a stick at (dozens of minigames from casino gambling to Shogi, and about a 60-100 sidequest per game).

I'd also point out something you said yourself, the PSP isn't even out of production yet.

12
I'll reserve the right to be completely wrong, but my gut says this won't have far reaching echoes. My assumption is that the letter was sent because the game is getting an official localization.

The only reprecussions I see on the whole in terms of fan-translation is that, perhaps more companies will go back and translate some of their older games, which could have effects on some translations that were thought to be safe to work on.

Excellent thread, and it's very cool to see the info on the various third-party carts. Congrats!

Gaming Discussion / Re: So, I got a Wii U...
« on: July 02, 2014, 12:57:00 pm »
I haven't owned a Nintendo console in a long time, so I really can't say definitively. I generally wait until a system's library of games fills out before buying a system, and at this point I can't really think of anything that the Wii U has that I really, really want to play.

Most of it simply looks like the same stuff that came out for the Wii. Things like Bayonetta and a Xeno RPG could certainly fix that, but even then, that's a big investment for a handful of games that I'd actually play.

The sports game, and fighting game lineup is very limited, and I think other consoles are the better alternative there. There's an HD Zelda, but not a new one until at least 2015. No Metroid, no next-gen Castlevania. I can play Deus Ex on the PS3 etc.

Yakuza1+2HD would have been amazing, but it wasn't localized, and Assuming it was, it would also have been on the PS3 with the rest of the series.

That's a messed up way for Mexico to go out. I was pulling for them, as they looked like they were gonna take down the Netherlands.

Excellent price point, definitely going to look into getting this. My RPG to everything else ratio on the 3DS is way out of whack, and that kind of ruins half the purpose of the system.

This is the first I've heard of this. I just did a quick search to get acquainted with that exactly it is. What's the price tag, and is it a digital-only release?

So very close to beating Portugal. U.S.A tied, gave up a goal 4 and half minutes into stoppage time.
