    Vagrant Story

    I couldn't find any on here. Oh yes, and the speech bubbles, it's all flooding back now. Like little scraps of cut-out paper.

    Vagrant Story

    May not have been, it was about 5 years ago - and my memory's terrible. What matters though is the dialogue really shone!
  6. Cut-scenes are the new loading screens. They're prettier too.
  7. I'll be buying a pstwo and two of those bad boys then. Agh. I hope get a raise next year.

    Vagrant Story

    The piggyback guide helped me no end with the understanding of weaponary modification. It also had a really helpful stat guide for all the monsters, and provided a good read on all the character histories.

    Drum N Bass

    Aye you're right, I actually meant to mention that on his original cd (yellow front, dnb arena) are filled full of other people's tunes. Imo that's the best record out with his name on it. Apologies about that.
  10. I'm re-buying this tommorow, and it's going to be the only game I play over christmas. Why? Becuase it's awesome. So awesome infact, it shames nearly all squares ps1 titles (and even ps2 titles) in terms of plot and even graphics. I thought the combat system was nigh on perfect too - real time, with chaining. What a great idea. Everything seemed so epic, so deep - the voice acting was fantastic, the character design sublime (reminded me of what a real final fantasy game should have looked like at the time), the setting with all those beautiful stained glass windows and green rolling vistas, and some of the monsters were truly huge. There was one scene which really hit home the emotional affect of this game though (spoiler warning) Flashback sequence. You're sitting having a picnic with your wife and young son, everything seems perfect, the sky is a perfect blue, your wife smiles at you, stands up and takes a walk. You don't notice as you're pacifying your little boy, but you hear a painful scream turn around in shock to see two men driving a sword through your wifes stomach. Everything paces in a monotone slow motion now, your mind is spinning. I watched that scene and sat in absolute terror. That's the kind of storytelling that grips and immerses you into giving a shit about what you're doing. If i'm correct in thinking this is one of the highest rated games in Famitsu? They hit the nail on the head there but in the west I think it's generally overlooked, or worse - forgotten. I'd love to see some kind of remake, or even a story in the vs universe on the ps2/psp.

    Drum N Bass

    They're not drum and bass though. VS is a mixture between mid warp style drill and bass and autechre, and shitmat varies so much it's insane. One minute he's raving it up proper junglist style, next he's in for a spot of gabba/fast techno crazyness. By the term drum and bass you mean the artists who are producing true rolling dnb that have been mentioned before: Pendulum Dieselboy Dillinja Andy C (doesen't actually make the tunes, just a great dnb dj in his own right) Fabio/Grooverider (see above) Concord Dawn Optical London Electricity Total Science
  12. It's all your opinion. Personally I think you're spot on with those bands, but I don't like the way you're generalising. 'All new music' is wank yeah? You obviously don't listen to a lot of new music then.
  13. He seems to be using the same old material over and over. Most of the material from that peter kay thing and his tours seem to be creeping up in max and paddy e.g - 'shaking like a shitting dog' in the last episode. Funny the first time etc.
  14. Ok, just to let everyone know - Monday's the warm up night and Tuesdays are the proper session night. Tonight i'll be on from 6pm onwards, again anyone who wants a few games, practice or whatever please add my gamertag:- Jairus I hope I'll see a few more of you on this time, hopefully for longer than I lasted though
