Finally finished Mass Effect 3.
Feels like I'm saying goodbye to a friend I was very close with for the past 5 years.
ME3 had it's (animation, plot) problems, but nearing the end of the game with all the epic stuff going on around you really made me think back to where it all began and taking all those things with me to that final moment. It's a shame most of the effects you've made on the universe didn't really matter all that much at the very end, but you still made them and the game still remembered all of it and made you aware of it, via emails, conversations or at the very least in the war assets.
Due to all the games being connected the way they are, it's strange feeling, the 'connection' I have to all the characters I met in the game, those that died or are still alive. I've never actually considered video game characters (my) friends, but they sure did feel like friends in these games, due to built and shared experiences throughout the games that you made of your own accord. It's weird sharing nostalgia with a video game character about things you helped shape in previous entries. The series never held your hand, wasn't linear, whatever happened; happened. You can talk to someone else who played it and s/he'll have a totally different story to tell, who's alive, who isn't, who said or did what.
I'm pretty sure there won't be a Mass Effect 4 to build on this particular story arc, but I'll definitely remember these three games as an experience I wouldn't have missed for the world.
Hey everyone! Two news bits today, and both actually good for a change!
First, we've got a twitter account! Follow us @ http://twitter.com/#!/SymphonicStorms
All three of us (Section Nemesis, Capital Jay & NemesisTheory) will be using it, so if you happen to have specific questions or anything let us know who you're asking! :D
Second, I'm finally at work on a new Rose song! Expect to see it here VERY soon! I'm getting help from the rest of the team as well since they're much better guitarists than me lol! I'm very excited about this one. Doing things with it that I haven't done before, but I don't wanna spoil the surprise just yet.
Lastly, thanks again for the awesome support you guys have been giving me through PM and email (and even on PS3!), I really appreciate it! I'm sorry for being so inactive, but I'm hoping to change that very soon. Stay tuned!!
EDIT FR. Oct 14th - Rose At Eclipse (V.1) is released! I hope you all enjoy the first part!
And now Mega Man Legends 3 is gone.
Capcom's really starting to get to me. And I honestly think I'm done with them, too. The way they dangled this stick in front of the fans (myself included) who've been wanting this game for over TEN YEARS and then take it away overnight is just ridiculous, without any reason and being horribly vague about it. What makes it worse, they promised that the Prototype Version would be the definitive thing to see if it was "profitable" enough to green lit the project. I feel really bad about all the people who contributed so much in the Devroom project, all their efforts have been in vain.
I guess these guys would just rather go on with their Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, Street Fighter milking, that Devil May Cry abomination (which nobody likes and they still support, unlike MML3) and western-developed shooters like Operation Raccoon City.
I've never been more disappointed with Capcom - and that's coming from a huge Devil May Cry fan.
I'm happy to see that Capcom is really under fire @ their Unity page, though. I know it won't matter at all and that they probably don't care (as they showed with DmC) but at least it's better than taking it lying down.
Are there any Mega Man (legends) fans out here who feel the same way?
Anyone catch the TGS 2010 trailer?
It's on Gametrailers if you haven't.
I am in tears right now. One of my favorite series is going straight down the drain. I am angry, I am confused.
I can't believe how Ninja Theory completely missed the point of the entire series. Dante now looks like some emo vampire kid that was taken straight out of Twilight or something. This is miles below what I expected out of the new DMC game.
That town, called "Limbo City" apparently, looks like a Gotham City wannabe. The enemies look like they're straight out of Silent Hill. Dante's attitude is completely gone (as are his muscles and masculinity), his sword.. is that even a sword? What happened to the music?
I probably would have been okay with this game had it not been a Devil May Cry game. But it is exactly that, and a reboot at that, and it looks nothing like the games I've been playing with so much love for the last decade. It needed changes, sure, but nothing like this. Not the nuclear solution.
RIP Devil May Cry.
2001 - 2010.
UPDATED April 13th 2011: A no show at Captivate 11, while a game that was announced little than a week ago got a second trailer (Operation Raccoon City). Ninja Theory is definitely on the ball here!
On a side note, Dragon's Dogma looks awesome. Go Kobayashi Go!
I'm finally back after a too long absence from NG!
But I hope to make up for lost time by submitting this remix of PHOENIX WRIGHT: ACE ATTORNEY. The entire team I work with are huge fans of this series, and myself included! So it was about time for a Phoenix Wright remix, I think!
Please check it out whenever you feel like it, and if you haven't played any of the Ace Attorney games and love great writing, stories and characters, PLEASE DO. These games are unforgettable! I'm going to be a fangirl and say *I think* that the stories are generally better than the entire metal gear series! Yes, I went there! :o
So I hope you enjoy the song, and like me, are totally bummed out because AAI: Miles Edgeworth (<333) doesn't come out until FEBRUARY next year. T____T
OMG it made OCR <3 *explodes into confetti*
* OMG capcom reps heard it and loved it <3 *re-explodes into bits of glorious jelly*
I felt the need to make a new post asking everyone if they play Street Fighter IV!
I bought it for PS3 on release and have been playing it ever since.
I am a huge Street Fighter fan (I adore Capcom, really, almost all of my favorite games are made by them) since I was little and played SF2 a lot back then too, but I was pretty bad at it XD
I guess growing up has its advantages, I feel I'm a little better now!
This new Tournament Mode is really awesome, i finally got the chance to try it out today since my own TV broke a month ago and I now connected my PS3 downstairs... downstairs has a pretty basic TV but I wont complain. XD
Soooo who do you guys all main?
I'm gonna sonic shock everyone and say I main GUILE! The man with perfect hair <3 hahaha.
I notice with tournament edition people really seem to pick completely different people... I even fought another Guile today! It was totally awesome even though he had ten times my GP. XD I never had this happen before in player or ranked matches! :O and I almost played like 500 matches too XD
Anyway if anyone wants to play (and probably beat) me my PSN is NemesisTheory, which shouldn't come as a shock to anyone really. XD
Anyway, SFIV is awesome!!
EDIT 2/1/2009 |
Happy belated newyear everyone!
i'm totally stuck at home with stomach flu so this new year cycle sucked for me XD
EDIT 10.12.2008 |
Rose At Twilight is here!
I hope you'll all enjoy it!
I guess after almost 6 months it's maybe, almost time for a new Rose (and a new news post) !
Well, I'm here to let you guys know that there is a new Rose coming, very soon!
I really hope you all will enjoy it, because... it's gonna be epic! lol.
Look for it in the coming few weeks. :)
If anyone has some title suggestions I'd be willing to look at them. :P
The more original, the better!
About two weeks ago when I asked you guys on what to upload next I really didn't think I'd spark this much interest. Rose at Nightfall really is doing such an awesome job, there's really nobody I can thank but each and every one of you guys that reviewed, voted and listened to my music as a whole.
Now two weeks later; #1 on the Weekly Best and now #2 on Overall Best? That's just crazy, seriously. We all know how many blammers haunt Newgrounds and honestly I never thought Nightfall would last through it's scoring process this week. But all of you really made it happen.
I couldn't respond to many of your PM's and reviews as I'd have liked because my personal life is kicking off again the past few days (a story to tell for those who are interested I suppose, but useless in this post overall), but right after I'm done typing all of this I'll get to each and every one of you who've shown interest and appreciation.
How could I not respond to you? That would be rude, honestly. So really, don't worry if I haven't responded yet; I will. I usually am really slow with my older submissions but if you really want a response on a review I've totally forgotten, PM me and I'll get to it. :)
All in all, consider this a big "Thank You" note from me, to all of you.
Now I'm off to respond to everything you guys sent me over the last few days when I wasn't here!
And if I've forgotten something, let me know! Send another PM, I really don't care XD I'm just really slow sometimes.
PS: Here come the blammers! X3
Hi children! Hope you have fun. You were expected like a week ago, slowpokes!
I'm having a hard time deciding what to upload next, really. I've a bunch of stuff lying around and I don't want to upload it all, honestly. So, I'm gonna ask the few who actually visit this side of the interwebs and see what comes out!
New Boss Theme,
Harder faster and stronger than Rose at Midnight, which was just a fight theme really.
I suppose I really don't have to explain that one.
(A few of you already saw this one, maybe, before I removed it.
I'm not exactly happy with it just yet!)
(Another lol) Trance Song, I suppose this one speaks for itself too.
Or I can take a request and remix some videogame song.
I have to like it as well, though! I can't really work if I don't have any inspiration when I listen to the song, lol.
Anyway, um, I guess that about covers it. There's other random stuff but honestly, I'm just not happy with 90% of what I create, end up posting it and seeing flaws in it eventually that I really regret not having fixed, or added... I'm just never satisfied I suppose.
If you managed to read through all that I'm actually impressed.
Also why did we lose to Russia? waaah! ;_;
no more orange parties till at least two years!
