so Xenoblade is out now, which makes me giddy. the ost will be released a little later this month, but it DID come with a sampler CD. mistuda did the end song on this game 'beyond the sky' with english lyrics written by takahashi himself.
vocals by the amazing sarah alainn

can't wait for the full soundtrack to be released later this month!

Urgh! Listening to a piece of music by Mitsuda, with Takahashi having written the lyrics, attached to a game that isn't Xenogears is just driving a little part of me insane right now. Confound corporate ownership of the rights to art!

But I suppose Takahashi's long since moved on from Gears anyway.

maybe not. we REALLY need to get some connections so we can score some interviews to ask these very same questions. I've since gone totally insane after xenosaga was handed over to someone who is not mitsuda. it's like replacing mcCartney or Lennon in the Beatles. it just.....isn't.

I want to try Planescape: Torment. That will be first Black Isle Studios game.
Since I know little about this game, I can only hope it can surprise me in a good way.

I'm torn as to whether I should listen to the Xenoblade soundtrack now (dying to hear Mitsuda's vocal theme) or wait for the game and let it come as a pleasant surprise at the end. Speaking of new Mitsuda soundtracks (for Wii games, no less) is anyone familiar with Arc Rise Fantasia (especially its soundtrack)? How good is it (both the game and the OST)?

All I really know about Planescape Torment is how many people have told me it is amazing and I need to play it. Sadly, there does not appear to be any Mac version and my Boot Camp has not been working for almost a year...

Speaking of which, I don't suppose anyone is familiar with the quality (or lack thereof) of the Mac version of Deus Ex?

I played roughly through several maps and then started over. Though I have not get an impression of whether the story is good or bad, but the gameplay and dialogues have already awed me so far. I like the way how you interact with those NPCs, most time, the quests can be done either by brutal force or if possible, simply talking to those NPCs. I find myself enjoy talking to numerous characters, listening to their funny or thoughtful words, scratching my head and picking an option carefully.

Really, it seems there's only one thing to be said about the 3DS at this point: BITCHIN'.

Thought you folks might enjoy this.

That is amazing.

I started playing Secret of Mana with D today on his emulator.  I've never played it before (he has).  It's cracking me up how the main character looks so much like Crono.

Nintendo literally exploded with news during their performance. I swear a puddle of water came down my shorts after seeing a New Zelda, DKC, the 3DS, etc. Oh yeah, who agrees that the 3DS might get Chrono Cross? FOR GOD'S SAKE, LOOK AT THE GRAPHICS KID ICARUS HAS! THOSE ARE BRAWL LIKE GRAPHICS THERE!

Yeah, 1UP said that Nintendo clearly won E3 this year.  With that lineup, it's easy to see why.

I played through Red Faction 1 and 2 earlier this year, and I think the games have held up pretty well.
