Part of me wants the in game music and SFX to be like this

Anyone else feel the same way? Black magic casting SFX will always be epic in my book.

According to wikipedia, Nobuo Uematsu wasn't the musical composer on 12 or 13, but he did 14. Sweet. Should be good.

Yes although I don't want it to sound *literally* like that, I get what you're saying.

I posted in another thread that I miss the melody and creativity of Uematsu working with synthesizers rather than full on orchestras.

I also miss the gravitas (and maybe the sound has something to do with it) of the magic itself. Bolt 1 or whatever was this little tiny sliver, then when Bolt 3 or 4 came around it was a spectacle, and when X-wave or Ultima came around...it was over.

Ancient magic in FFXI was kinda like that, but that was it. I think the only way to reclaim that old feeling is by changing the scale/camera angle to show more of the screen...but I digress...

Quite possibly the single most awesome part about Dissidia was the reinvention of the old classics imo.

Anyway there's definately homage to Uematsu's vintage work in FFXIV, you just wait and see
