I don't totally get what that game will be "about" exactly.  It looks like there will be quests in some form, since there were interactions in specific ways that make it seem like different humans and animals have different tasks and goals to accomplish.  But it looks gorgeous, could be something really cool, and I definitely want to hear more about it.

Yggdrasil.  How dare you put up a bunch of SF4 tracks up on the last page and neglect the best one? 

Africa - Small Airfield

Bonus:

Born to be Bone (Gitaroo Man) - the stage I could get past on Master Play....

FINALLY beat Bravely Default.  Had to fight the final boss three or four times, because my higher-risk quick-kill strategy (two Ninjas, one Thief, one Performer, Hasten World) was getting annihilated by the final form.  Eventually decided **** it and went for 3 dual-shield Knights with Blood Shields and Super Charge backed by a Spiritmaster.  Ultimate defense.  Man, that was a fun game once you get through the, uh, more repetitive parts.

Welp, more Bravely Default.  Got the Conjurer asterisk, leveled it up some, learned Obliterate and, well... long story short all four of my characters are at level 99, all jobs are at level 14, and Encounter Rate -100% is now permanent unless I decide to go hunting for Genome spells.  At the end of Chapter 7 now, and hopefully that means I'm near game's end.  BD has dominated my game time for a ~little too long.

Great episode!  Here's some of my favorite town music that wasn't already in the show:

Your Affection (Never More album version) - Persona 4
Boy Meets Girl (Twoson music) - Earthbound
Wonder Castle (Holt Village music) - Disgaea 2

Man, college football is just depressing for me. We've had some good teams and players over the years and even some 1st round picks since I attended (all linemen), but we haven't beaten our rival school in over a decade. I was actually writing my college application essays when I saw that last win.

Guess my alma mater without immediately calling me a douche and you get a sandwich.

I'm a Ravens fan.  Hasn't been a great month.

Bravely Default.  I'm at the end of Chapter 4 (or at least I assume I am), doing the Vampire Castle sidequest.  My characters are at level 54-55.  I killed all six dragons, but MAN the castle's regular enemies are kicking my ass.  Considering just turning off encounters and going straight to the boss, then using Performer/Stillness support to beat it.  In fact, I think I'll do just that.  *moseys over to charging station*

Chrono Trigger, Earthbound, Lunar, Seiken Densetsu III (which I've always preferred to SoM), Super Mario RPG, and Skies of Arcadia.  Maaaybe Dragon Quest VIII Colorful JRPGs that are easy to understand and don't have mature themes.  Unless Lunar is more inappropriate than I remember.

Bravely Default, chapter 4.  Difficulty spike was pretty significant.  I can't just charge in stupidly and go for 1st-round victories all the time now.  Time to buy some shields!

More Bravely Default.  Took out a few more Asterisk holders (Mephilia and Artemia).  Really enjoying it.  I especially love how a few traditional FF classes (i.e. Knight, Thief, and Monk) are true to their roots, but as crazy and versatile as they've ever been.  Aside from FF XIV, which is on another love with its FF Job love.

To piggyback on Rob's point, Whedon's run on the Astonishing X-Men comic was maybe the best X-Men run since Claremont. It's that good. He also wrote six or seven issues of Runaways that were really great, but unfortunately that comic wasn't very well-known to not-comics people and it went to shit shortly after Vaughan and Whedon were off the book.

I think I probably owe Whedon at least a hundred dollar bill for his work on the original Toy Story. Yes, he was only the fourth or fifth writer in a committee, but it's still in his filmography. And I probably owe Lassiter in the neighborhood of a grand.

The superior dungeons (and greater number of dungeons) is 96% of the reasons why I prefer Twilight Princess to Wind Waker, even though Wind Waker has a lot going for it.  And I did like the short-but-sweet dungeons in ALBW, but I still wish they were a little larger or more elaborate.  I judge every Zelda game by its dungeons.  Self portrait

Now I'm doing two games at once: Bravely Default, which I bought shortly after finishing A Link Between Worlds, and Final Fantasy V, which I've played at least four or five times.  This time I'm doing a Four Job Fiesta run for charity. 

Holy **** those two games seem really similar at first.  Wind crystal breaks in the first few cutscenes.  Characters spring into action.  Accidental hero boy decides to help determined girl.  They meet amnesiac man.  Then they meet a feisty tough girl.  Job system with secondary skill equipments.  Predecessor games with similar ideas and job systems, but not even half as good (FF III and 4HOL).  OK, I'm reaching a little bit, but the whole time playing Bravely Default I keep getting FFV flashbacks.  Bizarre coincidence that I decided to do a 4JF right when I bought BD.
