I love how varied the music is in FF14. Not every boss battle has to sound all doom and death. I was playing the new Emerald nightmare raid in WoW and while the raid itself was good I noticed the music was just sooo boring. The raid included nightmare versions of existing areas and they didn’t even remix the music from those areas.
It also comes down to the quality of the music lol. Jeremy Soule makes western styled background music that is absolutely great to listen to all the time, many others do not.
i doubt blizzard can match ff even if they try the Japanese take game orchestral very seriously its not just ff check out Zelda wild arms the list gos on and on some of the greatest sound tracks ever and i mean ever.
In the sound when they scream FORWARD AND BACK, to anyone else, does it sound like the voice is trying to mimic a sound of gears harshly grinding against each other at high speed? If you’ve ever had homemade ice cream, the ice cream churn sounds similar when it’s grinding inside to churn the ice cream xD Does anyone get what I meant?
Maddi Kitten I thought they were saying “Fly, butterfly” because of the whole ‘a single beat of a butterfly’s wings could cause a hurricane on the other side of the globe’ thing. Like, chaos theory or something.
It is also a double-reference. It is meant to embody Ark from FF9, whose transformation scene is extremely, extremely similar and just so happens to gain power from Lapis Lazuli in your inventory.
this crap becomes the sound of your sanity ebbing away.love it, but one of these runs im gunna be found rocking in a corner insanely muttering “forward and back and then Forward and back and then go foreward and back and put one foot foreward” over and over.
