Six hours of Kingdom Hearts 2.5. I have no regrets, other than I couldn't play Tales of Symphonia at the same time.

When I first saw this dragon, I thought you made it with a pair of googly eyes. Also, I love the colors of this dragon! :)

Soooo I guess I should have realized by now that we've got a thread for the podcast. Sorry to be no show for a while there. I promise I wasn't being antisocial on purpose, just on accident! ;)

Welcome! Better late than never. ;)

I actually really like Suikoden IV's OST. I know that game isn't well-loved, but since I've literally never even seen it in action, I can't comment on that.

On a related note, my project for Christmas at the family's place is to pick Suiko2 back up and finish it once and for all.

I adore Suikoden IV's soundtrack and game with a passion. It is true that sailing in the ocean can be a drag, but I really enjoyed this game's cast of characters. I do have to say one of my favorite music moments is the duel with Mitsuba, when this plays: Magnificient Handling of a Broadsword [Mitsuba Fight BGM]. Then again, just that theme @ 0:24 is my favorite part, which is also in another duel theme: Fated Confrontation [Duel Battle BGM].

*hint: If anyone wants to get me anything ever, the gensosuikoden IV soundtrack is the way to go! ;) ;) ;)

Speaking of accordion and Suikoden popping up....

The suikoden IV opening theme is fantastic.

You know it! :D

I woke up to find mario and luigi cupcakes on the kitchen table. I realized then that today was my birthday and that it was time to play a non-stop session of Kingdom Hearts 2.5. I kid...I have a lot of things to do today, and that I already did an 11-hour-non-stop session of Tales of Symphonia on PS3. :D :D :D (send help)

First: I love that .gif, my friend and I use it all the time to describe our job. :)

Second: What exactly is your skill set/specialty (if you don't mind me asking)? Also, congrats again for being the first in your family to attend (same deal here), you should be very proud! :)

What works for most creative people I know is a steady (if somewhat boring/simple) job 24-32 hours a week (= source of income reliable enough to eat and pay rent), freelance work for fun/creative outlet and extra cash. Some of them moved on to being fulltime artists thanks to talent and hard work (and plain old good connections). I don't know what kind of job/career/thing you're looking for exactly, but I'm sure you'll get there one way or another :)

This is generally how it is right now for me. However, I have a little bit to say about this idea, just not at the moment. ;)

Thanks, I love the gif too, and thanks, I'm proud of finishing despite the fact I follow the heart attack of final papers with the heart attack of 'bigger work'.

I'm basically between art and graphic design.  I can illustrate well and I can create the logos, pamplets, posters, imagery.  I always want to be better of course and I need to build the FUCK out of my portfolio.  But I'm happy that I've already been pain for quite a bit of work, so I'm confident to say I'm good enough in that respect. 

Haha What are you winking about??? x)
That's pretty exciting if you have a big project ahead though, what do you do anyways???? (don't think I've ever asked; and of course, if you wanted to divulge)


Oh Dice, you should know by now I just can't stop winking at everything. ;)

Also, In what regards do you mean what do i do anyways? I do a little bit everything. :D

I've had an absolutely miserable last two weeks.  I'm not going to waste time with descriptions about why that no one will read or really care too much about.  I just wanna say it fucking sucks and leave it at that.

Well if you ever wish to give us the deets in the future, I'd be more than happy to listen. :)

Just super saiyan, Wild and I posted a bagpipes, accordion, and sitar selections that are nothing short of extraordinary musical selections

Preach it, Sistah. ;)

Also, I'd like to add this accordion vgm track that I have been in love with since its release: Suikoden IV OST: 1-01 "La Mer"

I actually saw that earlier but didn't have a chance to listen? Can I be lazy and ask you to link it here :)?
These two posts from the Random VGM thread.  Pretty cool stuff in there. 

Pretty cool indeed!
67  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The most horseshit battles you've suffered through, an RPG retrospective on: December 07, 2014, 11:41:36 PM
I can't think of any specific battles off the top of my head, but generally this: Any programmed battle you can't win but given the impression you can.

Use all your items to stay alive > Die anyway > Game Continues > Lose your shit (figuratively and literally)

Only two that come to mind right now are that Wolf boss from Tales of Vesperia and the Organization XIII member you fight at the second visit to Beast's Castle in KH2.

Oh but then you get the fliphand where it's like

get into fight
Oh that guy just killed two of my guys right of the baseball
Clearly I am not meant to win this fight lets just attack till its over
Whoops that was something I was supposed to win

Apropos to what I've been playing lately though, probably the onramps in Poland in eurotruck.

Are you still playing Suikoden III? Yeah, get ready for that later on in the game. One particular fight--I wont spoil it--I thought:

"Oh, I've lost battles easier than this and still continued, this must be the case."

I was a fool.

Wild Arms 3 final boss.... all 13 forms of it.

That was a pain (loved the final boss music, however. ;)) I'll chime in with generally any of the secret/sealed boss fights in any of the Wild Arms games. If you accidentally walk into one, you're already dead.

Yeah I remember when I got a jump-scare/annihilation from Emerald, and curiosity actually killed me with Ruby Weapon in FF7.

IIRC, some WA bosses did that too.  I was curious to use Gallows' 4th tool...but got more than I realized.

I still remember in Wild Arms 2 using Marivel's My Mike in front of the pillar outside Golgotha's prison and being greeted by this:



And it was, like "We'll that's just great, let me just shut the system off and make up those unsaved hours tomorrow."

I like the cut of this Dice's roll. ;)

Here's my small playlist of game tracks with bagpipes. ;)

Had a listen during my last drawing session.  Thank you x)

73  Media / The Soundroom / Game Music Bundle 8 - 168 tracks for $1 on: December 05, 2014, 12:32:04 AM
LINK: Game Music Bundle 8 (Duration: 2 weeks)

This hit my inbox yesterday:

Game Music Bundle 8
The weather outside might be frightful, but the music is so delightful! Game Music Bundle returns for its 8th installment just in time to bring you and yours some holiday cheer. If this is your first winter with GMB, you'll love our top 5 soundtracks, available at less than the price of a hot cup of cocoa. Seasoned veterans will know that the biggest gift comes with our full bundle, containing over 400 tracks across nearly a score of albums!

***
A little GMB love letter...
Since the very beginning, our goal at Loudr has been to build technology that supports songwriters. We have been overwhelmed by the talent and community around video game music. Game Music Bundle 8 places a handful of your favorites alongside each other starting at just $1, a deal we are beyond excited to be able to offer. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

The five soundtracks in question are:

The Sailorís Dream (Original Soundtrack)
Zombies/Corporate Lifestyle Simulator OST
Gods Will Be Watching Original Soundtrack
Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake
Super Time Force Original Soundtrack

And if you pay $10 or more, you get 14 additional albums. I just want to point out that one of those albums is the Freedom Planet Official Soundtrack (which I highly recommend). I already own the Freedom Planet OST, but I personally would have throw down cash for that alone with the 18 other soundtracks as a delicious, saturated ganache to my already rich ice cream cake (the FP OST has 72 tracks).

Warmest regards and enjoy.

That IS a thought. What DOES a Art History degree get you, anyway? What type of job are you hoping to do? Hopefully, you can get some sort of kick ass art related job, but I think we've all heard bad things about job potential for people with art degrees. Perhaps art history is different?



Probably not much.  Usually it's Masters in these that do way better.  I'm kind of scared, but I have some experience in creative fields and a small something coming up, so I'm hoping to slowly continue that way.
But I just kinda 'fell into' University as a way to beef up the credentials in something I enjoyed.  I graduated college at 20 and saw my college buds getting some real lousy entry level jobs (and felt 'too young' to start THE career).  Plus, I'd have been the first in my family to attend, so the folks are proud. :D

So no problems whatsoever!!!

Yessiree...!!
