I just discoverd my first gray hairs...

Nothing wrong w/ that.

Yar, nothing wrong with that. I'm 24 and have both sides with prickles of gray/white hair...My aunt and dad says it's from my great grandpa/their granddad. I laughed a bit because they compared my hair to a very old person. I know it's from [academic] stress, which is fine by me because it makes sense, and I say it even adds to my evil facial appearance when I grow out my hair (Students have told me I look like an evil/crazy pianist when I have long hair).

My haps though: Got to do an anthropology fieldwork assignment due Thursday. I only have Monday (tomorrow) to do it...so I plan on going somewhere I normally don't go; outside my house.

I appreciate the throwback to the use of chiptune/nes approach in its tracks...but still my favorite track from this soundtrack is its theme: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h6iBLIPq_wE&feature=related

Love this track! :)

Well said, Taelus...well said.

In regards to reviews: I always find it a great pleasure to see when a poorly-reviewed soundtrack is reviewed by another who focuses on the positives rather than the negatives. You not only receive the bads/greats of a soundtrack, but you receive the opinions of two human beings who approach a work of art differently. I am always fascinated at the amount of disgust someone has with a soundtrack and then later on I find a review on the same soundtrack, from a different person, and see nothing but positive opinions--it's as though I've entered a parallel universe--and it is times like that where observing these reviews being conducted fill my heart with joy that kind words were said (one of my hobbies, perhaps future profession, is observing the human reaction towards a video game/anime soundtrack).

In regards to public soundtracks reviews....perhaps a thread should be created for users to post their own game/anime soundtrack reviews? I am aware a great deal of rpgs that we truly love is already reviewed, some more than once by other reviewers, but it would be nice to see other(s) [users] have their take of review through a more relaxed, informal transmission of their thoughts, feelings, connections, etc., here on the boards.

Perhaps I'm being a bit pretentious with my thoughts?

I thought this topic was low-priority



That really is quite fascinating and comforting to know such software/program exist to help the hearing impaired. So....what was your favorite tracks from the Arc Rise Fantasia OST then? :3

Should I be scared?
The picture that Dice posted... yeah, that's scary. :(

What are you talking about? That's the main hero. Enjoy the game!

I read the reviews to decide what to buy. I am odd in that I am legally deaf and actually enjoy music, and for some reason, many video game soundtracks seem to be "just right" for my ears to handle. I am unable to really sample game music online and such since I need to be able to download it onto my configurated iPod to hear it properly, so I end up buying the CD, burning it and loading it onto the iPod.

So no test-listens... gotta decide what is worthy of risking my $$$ on.


If you don't mind, could you open up to us more what you mean about being legally deaf but still hearing the music? And how game music is more suited for your listening than other kinds of music? I'd really like to hear more about this.

Ditto. By legally, would you mean that you have relatively partial hearing and you're iPod is configured with some sort of amplifier? Very curious...

So, you can chop a bullet?

as a pretty big proponent of music reviewing in general, what I look for in reading another person's review is a perspective on the music that I could not have gleaned naturally on my own. Some music reviews get into the technical terms, others speak very metaphorically of the music's "soul," still others will compare this or that song to other artists' works or specific genres of music. And in almost any review, there is always the "informative" bit (information about the composer, artist, source material, etc). In all of these things, I may find an opinion that surprises me, and a way to approach the music as I listen.

In short, music reviews help me get more mileage out of the music. I learn new things and learn how to listen, just a little better. :)

Reading this as a musician and future Music Librarian; this post greatly uplifts my spirits...thanks.

Out of curiosity, I'd like to know the reason(s) why you would read a Game/Anime soundtrack review.

For myself, I enjoy reading the opinions of others in regards to what they perceive as "good" and/or "bad" music to them. There are times when the reviewer specifies that their comments is of their own personal reflection(s) on a soundtrack, but at times you'll find a reviewer who drops the absolute,"The isn't Music" line (hardly is it ever direct/verbatim said; rather it is stated in a particular phrase of dissatisfaction or ambiguity).

Though, regardless of whatever review I read, I hardly ever allow it to determine my purchase. What I like, is what like, and no words from another reviewer can deter me otherwise.

A note: Worry not rpgfan ost reviewers, I enjoy your reviews very much. ;)
927  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: When did you get into gaming? on: February 04, 2012, 04:45:58 PM
When I was like, three, we got my dad a NES for Christmas. Some time after that I borrowed a bunch of my cousin's NES games.

Then he went to jail and I got to keep them ^_^

This without the jail time. First game to buy outside the mario bros/duck hunt was Legend of Zelda 1 + 2 at the same time. WIN
928  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Do you keep your games or trade after finishing them? on: February 01, 2012, 05:08:08 PM
I sell em. I'm not concerned with product value or attachment. While I do enjoy playing video games, they hold little value outside of their entertainment medium other than the story and music within. If I really liked a soundtrack or story, I'll keep the game, but that's a blue moon occurrence. There's 3 games I own I wouldn't sell because of simply enjoying the soundtrack and don't want to throw down $60 for the ost.

But you could probably guess that I sold my video games by lurking in The Bazaar.

I usually just go with classics like son of a bitch or motherfucker when I'm angry.

I'm quite fond of dastardly fellow

While I have no objections to the forumites around here I do have to state most of y'all's mindsets are things I'll never comprehend. :-\
Trolling could be afoot.......but not likely :P.

The only visual novel that I have played for about 5 hours and stopped was Fate/stay night. The worst part....I didn't get that far at all! But it was fun nonetheless.

I may give this one a go once the DDL appears, but that comes after shutting the adult content off.
