  1. Sledgstone liked a post in a topic by Strider Hiryu in Favorite Game OST   
    While I chose this track the whole OST is a fucking eargasm of amazing music, this is just the culmination when you beat the game (and considering how it ends this song is extremely fitting). As of playing this game this has been and will always be my favorite soundtrack of any game (ABZU comes in second but I have yet to beat the game). This game has no voice acting and little to no story (except for what you make of it) except for snippets on random walls/shrines. The game relies entirely on the soundtrack to set its pace and it couldn't of done a better job. If you never get the chance to play the game do yourself of favor and listen to the soundtrack, its definitely worth it.
    Of course I had to put a FFXIV song here. If it wasn't for this trailer/video I probably never would of started playing FFXIV and I freaking adore this song (I've listened to it on repeat so many times I actually have it memorized, song's name is Answers btw). Such a beautiful song and by far my favorite one off the entirety of FFXIV's discography (which is massive now and has some amazing music. Other personal favorites include Titan's Theme, Ramuh's Theme, Dragonsong (the theme song for Heavensward), and Revolutions (theme song for Stormblood)). FYI this video is how they wrapped up the story from the failed 1.x version of FFXIV and what led us into A Realm Reborn.
    There's plenty more I could post but those two stand out the most for me. Honorable mentions would be Zone of the Ender's OST (first game, I wasn't really into the 2nd Runner's OST), Ace Combat 5 and 0's OST (both extremely good soundtracks), Chrono Cross's OST (there are some amazing songs in those 3 discs), and every Chocobo Theme ever produced (hey I love the Chocobo Themes).

    Ah yes, I can't leave out my most played game. Ole Dragon's stand. A whole map made into a meta event that lasts at least an hour. I'll never forget when I first got here, I knew very little about it since HoT was so new. I ran my lane and fought the bosses thinking how epic it was, and then was blown away by the giant serpent dragon boss at the finale. This music ran the whole time giving it such a thrilling experience.
    Yeah I can't pick just one.

    Geez, when you chose to be smart but you transformed into an overweight middle-man. LOL 
    Who else is looking forward to seeing this movie???

    You should have watched it, Gal Gadot did a magnificent task portraying the character of Wonder Woman. It's not boring, and the visual effects are pretty outstanding. I hope that Justice League (Unite the League) will be as successful as this movie.

    I know I made a topic like this a long time ago, but a ton of games have come out since then. What are you favorite/most memorable original game tracks?
    This is still my all time favorite track. The powerful start still sends chills through my spine. I'll never forget when a friend handed me a demo disc for the first game before it came out which featured the start with the ship, ending with the Hydra boss. I was so blown away by how awesome it was I couldn't wait for the full game. Then after falling in love with how the first game played, and its story I was hyped for this game when it was announced. The opening was just epic.
    It's really tough for me to pick just one track from this game. As a whole its probably my favorite total OST of any game. But this track sticks with me because its from one of the most intense parts of the game that had a huge sense of urgency while it kept you in side scroll camera mode. You'd have to play it to understand how powerful the moment was. From about 1:40 and beyond was the section used for this mission.
    Ace Combat's first game got that ole fashion rename/mistranslation. PS1 shows up on the scene, games were true 3D experiences for the first time. I was like 12-13 when this came out, and I remember going to a friends house to spend the night and we stayed up playing this game til the morning. We were blown away, and this music was such a rush. Ace Combat was literally the first game I ever got my hands on in the Playstation era, and the rest is history.

    I was excited about his until they left out the best SNES game ever, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time (hands down the best game ever to come out on SNES (sorry Link to the Past, I love you dearly but nothing beats Turtles in Time)). Well that and Chrono Trigger (how you can release this without CT is fucking mind boggling). I might still pick one up for nostalgia sake (I do love me some Mega Man X).
    Shit Sledge you can mod these things the same as a Pi, my friend has the NES classic and has the fucking thing loaded with every NES game released (plus almost all the SNES titles). Each their own though.

    I just hope they release Starfox 2 for the Switch. I'd buy it.... and its the only reason I'd want an SNES classic.

    Unlike The Nes Classic I wanted a Snes Classic. (Also N64 Classic & GC Classic but those aren't being made yet.)

    You have to remember that The Last of US was a PS3 game. The PS4 may have made it look a bit nicer, but there is only so much more that could have been done without overhauling with a complete update.

    Finally, Marvel is giving importance to other superheroes. I hope that this movie can be as popular as Deadpool. This is one of the movies to watch out for next year.

    All those years ago I made a couple other anime sites. http://deathbygundam.com/ & http://windscar.com/ At one point I was going to make a variety of anime sites and Ancient Clan was going to be the primary hub for them all. Then life got in the way and my interests slowly faded. But its all good. I don't think I'll make any more anime sites, but I will expand on AC more in the future. And our anime forum is always open. Feel free to make status updates if you want, or upload some gallery pics, make some topics about a new anime you watched, etc. If you have any questions let me know.
    Was that the april fools when I put a message on the top of the forum that said something like: "Pssst, don't tell anyone, but you've been selected to have admin powers for today only. Ban anyone you want for 1 hour, go ahead.. they'll never know." ? And when someone put a name in and clicked ban, they'd ban themselves for an hour instead? That was a great april 1st.

    God that means I've been here for 16 years X.x  What are you putting in the water Sledge? (better not be Big Wheel, you know I'm addicted to the stuff)
    Welcome to our little slice of the internet. As DX pointed out we're pretty much a little of everything now though we mostly talk about games (a little anime here and there). Out of the few of us left I'm probably the one that watches the most anime (just currently finished re-watching Last Exile and watching Girls und Panzer). Whats your favorite anime?

    Thank you all for your wonderful greetings if that is how I suppose to call it. 
    Wow, 17 years and this forum is still up, that only means that a lot of people still love anime and of course playing games that is on trend nowadays. You guys are so cool, you are the pioneer of this community. Anime surely keeps us all young inside. 
    @Sledgstone I have watched both those series before, and I prefer a random genre. 
     
    I will be looking forward to more interaction with you guys.

  17. Sledgstone liked a post in a topic by Strider Hiryu in Anthem (Bioware's Destiny)   
    Eh, BioWare isn't one to just say something and not deliver (ME:A being an exception here), I could see this being a 10 year game if they do it correctly. By correctly I mean timing their DLC perfectly, making said DLC free and not put it behind a pay wall (though I would not be against paying for DLC if they can justify why we need to pay), and actually treating this game as an MMO and not a hybrid shooter with some MMO mechanics (this is really what hurt Destiny, Bungie never gave it a clear cut identity and it shows). The other thing is having a good plot/story that actually allows for expansion on the base game, not actually requiring a second game to fix fuck ups and plot holes introduced in the first.
    Due to BioWare's status as a AAA developer that always delivers (again ME:A is the exception but this was made by their B team, not one of their A teams) EA seems to be giving them more free reign on how they go about their business (especially considering how well the original ME trilogy did). Sadly this is all speculation and we won't have anything concrete on this game until most likely either TGS, Gamescom, or E3 next year (I'm assuming we'll get news out of Gamescom but probably not much, TGS really doesn't have many western developers make a showing and they'd be stupid to keep quite until E3 next year. Hell we might get lucky and get news out of GDC but I doubt it).
    Plus honestly we still don't really know the limitations on the current gen hardware, especially when you factor in the PS4 Pro and the XboneX. Most of the premier games for either the Xbone or PS4 had limitations forced on them by last generation consoles so we really haven't seen much more then a few titles that might be pushing either console to its limits (Horizon is one of the most beautiful games I've played on PS4 and I've only really run into a few issues here and there which I blame on bad coding more than console performance).

    Actually you're wrong on that thinking. War mode is not new, it was introduced in World at War and it was the most popular game mode besides TDM (though they made some significant changes to it since WaW, back then it was more like BF Conquest where you fought over flag points. War mode in COD (click this link for more info) ). You should know this DX considering how often I saw you in it (fuck I remember that one match we had against each other in it).

    Hi everyone, I hope that you are having a good day. My name is Alex and I've been a fan of anime since I was a kid. 
    BTW, am I on the right thread to do some introduction? I hope you can forgive me for being such an intruder. 
  20. Sledgstone liked a post in a topic by DeathscytheX in Detroit: Become Human   
    I'm pretty sure its make your own story where scenes only resets on you "dying" or a pivotal part of the story dies like the kid. The differences will be in successful solutions. I'll probably get this game when it goes on the cheap, it looks cool, but not $60 cool for my tastes.
  21. Sledgstone liked a post in a topic by DeathscytheX in God of War   
    If you're not up to speed on your Norse mythology. The World Serpent is Loki's middle child Jormungand. Thor threw him in the ocean as a child and he became so large he could grasp his own tail, which earned him the name World Serpent. When he releases his tail Ragnarok begins. Obviously GoW has always put its creative liberties in the story. But if I had to guess Loki is the one that is speaking to Kratos in the middle of the trailer, and Jormungand is going to help you in some way fight Thor... Somehow Kratos is getting screwed either at the end or mid way and we're gonna kill them all. PS5 we'll move on to Egypt.
