Amelie was playing in my art class last week. I only caught bits and pieces of it (I was working on a project), but it looks like it'd be a good little title to check out with my full attention. There were quite a few comedic scenes, as well as some wicked art direction/color schemes.

I've got a Top 20 like Pat does, but there's no way in hell I'm writing up mini-descriptions of why I love those games so much. Actually, I'm pretty unmotivated to write much of anything right now, so this is all you're going to get:

Breath of Fire III - I don't even know why I like this one so much. It seems as though no one likes it, but I like to think that everything about this game blends together so nicely. I'm really fond of the graphical and musical presentation, as well as the fine-tuned turn-based gameplay with sexy dragon/weretiger/giant-ass onion character transformations.

Digital Devil Saga (1+2) - This is pretty much the only game that has ever managed to get an emotional response out of me. The death scenes in this game were positively brilliant, something I've yet to witness in any other RPG to date. Every one of those characters, dead or not, is burned into my brain. Seriously, Pat, you need to play 'em.

Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars - Honestly, my love for this one is mostly fueled by nostalgia, but even still, this is a damn fine game. Funny, heartfelt, charming, upbeat to a fault; I love it.

Final Fantasy IX - Favorite game ever. A big part of my reasoning is that the setting (that includes the characters in it) was just so spectacular. I remember every location in that game. The underground mage factory in Dali, the waterfall library Daguerreo, Black Mage Village and their mascot, Bobby Corwin, Fossil Roo and those massive spider car things, whatever-the-fuck-it-was Terra. God damn, it's all way too memorable.

See, that's why I wasn't all that into it: Their marketing sucked. Every ad I saw made it look as though it would be a lighter version of Superbad, and that's EXACTLY what I was looking forward to when I went into the theater. The last thing I expected to experience was a light-on-laughs, dramady (emphasis on drama).

So yeah, I was definitely disappointed. I'm not docking the movie for being what it is, I'm just annoyed that they suckered me into paying for a movie that I otherwise wouldn't be interested in.

I saw Adventureland, too.

Big ol' meh from me. There was one big laugh, and that was pretty much it.

Here's me with a scrunchy face that I don't remember making:



And here's me two minutes ago:




And yes, my hair is awesome and unmimicable.

I finally got around to seeing Milk.

Not a bad way to spend two hours (three if you count the extras), let me tell you.

Have you heard the Gary Jules cover of that song or seen the video? 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4N3N1MlvVc4

This is one of the only cases where I liked the cover more than the original. 

Like a lot of people, I heard the cover on the Gears of War commercial.

I can dig both versions. They've definitely got two distinct flavors to them.

Digital Devil Saga 2 is nowhere near as effective without the character development portrayed in DDS1. The storyline of DDS1 might seem somewhat small once the series segways into the second game, but really, you need to experience it. The exposition helps tremendously.

It's entirely mandatory in my opinion.

I have yet to encounter a Megaten game I dislike. I used to be the type of person that bought pretty much every RPG that got released, so when Nocturne came around, that was my first game in the series. Since then, I've played Devil Summoner, Persona 3 (and FES), Digital Devil Saga, and Persona 2: Eternal Punishment, with the latter three on my personal top ten list.

It's just a great series.

I guess I mostly respond to the subject matter. I absolutely love the dark imagery and macabre themes that they cram into these games; it's stuff that no other series attempts. There's all this blood and guts, psychotic characters, swearing, sexual undertones, etc. It's so different than what I'm used to in terms of RPGs. And, like you, I dig the difficulty. I always get pissed off at how hard they are, but it feels downright amazing when I'm able to fight against a super tough boss and come out on time. I haven't gotten nearly as much satisfaction from other games in the genre.

Neal, I absolutely love how everything in those pictures (aside from the glasses) is exactly the same, right down to the crinkles in your shirt sleeves. =P

"Fuck You" by Garfunkel and Oates.

I heard this one on Scrubs (the censored version, anyway). Cute stuff.
