For clarification's sake, elsewhere on the forums I've been known to mention how much I despise how popular OWA is, I was just using it as an example of what I was referring to.

I think the folks dissing on Uematsu need to listen to the FFVII OST again.  The music almost made that game the legend that it is.

One Winged Angel (FFVII)

ExDeath's Castle (FFV)

Nobody said he was bad, a lot of folks have just noticed over the years he likes to reuse a lot of his stuff over and over again. I mean, I love Sakuraba, but even I admit the dude has exactly one sound and it's starting to get boring.

Those look fantastic, dood! Too bad orange and chocolate is one of the more disgusting food combinations man has come up with imo.

- Uematsu is 'okay' as a composer



The second half of his repertoire is just the first half of his repertoire chopped up and rearranged.

I also dislike Earthbound.

Madden 16 commercial is the greatest video game commercial ever made!


It's like EA Marketing was like:
"Are you sure we need to advertise MADDEN of all things?"
"No... probably not. But look at all this money they gave us to do so."
"Well then I guess we should do SOMETHING."

Aim for the Top (Tales of Vesperia) - I thought this battle theme was perfect for any final dungeon. It maintains that "Not exactly a threat" tone that all good normal battle themes have while still having a sense of urgency.

Spooks of Halloween Town (Kingdom Hearts) - Absolutely my favorite normal battle theme from the series, it fits in well with Elfman's original sound and is just an all around good piece of music.

Stab the Sword of Justice (Star Ocean 2) - Not sure if I like the original version more or the Heroic Mix from Star Ocean 4, but both are excellent at making me want to clash swords and sorcery with anything and everything.

Reach Out to the Truth (Persona 4) - First time this plays is magical! I think how well it works in both the turn-based affairs in the game and the action scenes in the anime is a testament to it's quality as a battle theme.

Don't Be Afraid (Final Fantasy 8) - This is one of those normal battle themes where the in-game battles are so lousy that it takes listening to it out of context to realize how genius it is.

- I truly enjoy Level-5 JRPGs. Some of my favorite titles.

- Blizzard's release schedule is inexcusable. And I've been losing respect for them as a company for the last decade. (That doesn't mean I don't enjoy some of their new releases still, they just disappoint me as a company)

- The first half of Bravely Default does not redeem the absolute garbage that is the second half.

- Lightning Returns is by far the weakest entry in the FFXIII trilogy.

- The PS Vita is a much better system than the 3DS (library notwithstanding)

- Agreed with the chap about FF4, do not understand the popularity. Is it even that popular or does Square Enix just constantly shove it in our faces for the fun of it?

- The Mana series is kind of awful. The plots are super simple stories turned into convoluted nonsense and the game play is above average at best.

I hate drinking water. Mostly because I rarely ever actually get thirsty, so drinking something so boring just feels like I'm fulfilling an obligation, almost as if I'm taking medicine. But any other healthy alternative is twice as costly as just going with soda, so I stick with the water but only drink about one or two glasses a day. =

As for cost,  I pick up a .99 gallon of spring water every three or four months, and just refill it with tap water until it starts to get grimy at all. And that's only so I can store it in the fridge since I hate ice.

Never really feel quite awake for the whole day after waking up from a really good dream. Was dreaming about finding a childhood friend, but woke myself up when I remembered I have to get ready for my final exam this morning. Which means now I get to take my final exam while still somewhat groggy. Yay.

Also the time between when AmiAmi asks for money for a preorder and the time it actually ships always feels like forever.

I can't watch timed whatever competitions anymore because I used to watch Carmen Sandiego as a young child and that goddamn map thing at the end was rigged.

Dat prize though! Pretty much the most creative prize of any serious game show.

Code:
(For those who never watched, kids got to write down any place in the world they wanted to visit before the game's version of the 'bonus round,' and if they won they'd win a trip to wherever they wrote down)

I eat whatever the hell I want.
I don't count anything.
I usually eat more than most people.
I've never gone to the gym in my entire life.
I'm 6 ft and 140 pound.

^ you must be under 30.  Be prepared to make a lifestyle change at some point or you'll have to deal with the dad bod that comes with it.


What he said. I was the same way. Had crazy fast metabolism and could eat whatever I wanted and stayed skinny. That all changed around 25 and now I'm having a really hard time adjusting to having to actually take care of myself.

Finally getting back to playing more Persona 3 FES. Don't expect an update to the journal anytime soon, but it's good to finally be back to playing something.

Did they give you the keys to the RPGFan twitter account or something?

Leaps and bounds in technology are wonderful. They really are! But maybe the auto-industry shouldn't be making hack-able cars. Cars don't need an internet connection.

Neither do kitchen appliances, and yet...
