Thoughts on Rhythm Encounter 26: Bends of Time

- Considering Chrono Cross has my all time favorite OST in all of video games (or maybe anything) I could not be more excited for this episode!  Thanks in advance for all of your hard work on this, guys!

Distant Scenery / Read Only Memories
Awwwwwwww yyyyeeeeeeaaaahhhh....... so soulful........ like the midnight sky inside a cup of black coffee.........
In all seriousness, I think this just gave my ears a 3-minute orgasm.  Listening to this FELT good.  Like, I'm chuckling while typing this because of how good my brain feels right now.  What is this feeling??  ......ok, I just shut my eyes for a moment and let it wash over me.  I feel a little more normal now.  What was that?  What is Read Only Memories?  What did I just experience??
*Uh oh... you guys are talking about it now... and it's playing in the brackground... here come the goosebumps again...
Alright, after the agony of having to pause the podcast so I could look up Read Only Memories, it is now on my Steam Wishlist.  Hopefully it will not die there like many an other good game.

Camp Approach / Firewatch
There's probably no more appropriate game title for this piece than "Firewatch".  Because that's totally the feeling it evokes; like I'm huddled around a fire in silence.  Even some of the instrumentation evokes images of chirping insects, and the mournful melody gives me a sense of fatigue and journey.  Really nicely done piece.

Dance With The Balamb Fish / SUCCESSOR: Final Fantasy VIII Remixed
This was utter utter nonsense that offended all of my higher brain functions.  My lower brain functions made me grin at it, though.  But that's it.  Just a grin.  Don't hold it against me.  Also... why "fish", precisely?  Is that a reference I don't understand.
*LOL, the "Aeris Dies" track you referenced got me really laughing, for sure.  Definitely prefer that one to this.

Chrono Trigger, Allegro Con Brio / Chronicles of Time
WHOOOOAAAAA.... I was about to comment on how much I like the use of the Trigger main theme, but then it turned into the CROSS main theme and then it kinda blended them both together and OMG JVFAIGFLSBFBLSKF<ILA:HF
........
*cough*
Ok, I think I'm good.  I didn't think those two themes could blend that well, but I was wrong.  Man.  Really, though, is there anything better than the main melody of "Scars of Time" being ripped out on a violin?  It could raise the dead, I swear.
*As far as how iconic it is, there's a VGM radio station called Rainwave.cc that allows users to vote and rate all the songs it plays.  To this day (afaik) "Scars of Time" continues to have the highest average rating out of every single song they play.  And Rainwave has almost everything you could think of.

Against the Wind / Chrono Cinematica
This was seriously cool.  All the cinematic touches (like an evil laugh, even!) just sent this track to the next level.  I almost want to say that I feel PRIVILEGED to be hearing these familiar melodies done so well, and it really does make my heart ache for a bonafide Chrono movie.  With music like this, how could it ever be bad?

Star-Stealing Girl / Chrono Cross
So....... real talk:  I was excited to hear this one, but when it finally came on, I just ended up shutting my eyes and crying, alone in my office.  I simply cannot separate the turbulent emotions of my teenage years from the music of this game.  I played so many games back then, but it's always THIS soundtrack that always gets the emotions going.  This track started and all I could feel was the pain of Kid's loss as the orphanage burned to the ground in the distance...
*Ok, good, I'm not the only one who cries over this song...  Seriously, how did Mitsuda write so much dang emotion into music!??!?!  HOW?!

- More to come tomorrow.  SOOOOO excited for Scars of Time!

With regard to the discussion of Supergiant games on the most recent episode: I found Transistor to be much, much more compelling than Bastion, although I enjoyed both games.  I didn't find the talkative sword to be at all annoying or hipstery, and really I just got very drawn into the world.  It didn't seem like anybody on the podcast really shared my enthusiasm for the game, but I binged it over two days, and when I beat it it left me feeling that melancholy you feel when you finish a really good book.

Also, you guys should totally do something at Magfest, because I'm seriously considering going to the next one that happens, so you'd have at least one panel attendee!

Lastly, goodbye Stephen! Good luck in future things!

I totally get where you're coming from-- I liked Transistor more than I liked Bastion, as its overall audiovisual style was more to my taste. I bought it on release day and powered through about 2/3 of it all at once, and then didn't pick it up again until I completed it over a year later. I think there's a great game somewhere in Transistor, but I wanted a little more context for everything that was happening in its world. Pyre looks sweet, though!

So I'm considering taking my first vacation ever next year (as I don't work a regular 9-5 week work schedule), and I'm debating on going to Japan or maybe Ireland. Japan obviously for the electronics and video game related reasons, though I would like to travel outside of it to the more rural areas as well for some culture shock. Ireland's a little more interesting...besides the semi obvious heritage background, for a long time I considered that to be my "retirement home" locale. Anyone have some input or suggestions regarding either, I'd love to hear them.

Never went to Ireland, but I spent 4 months in Japan, with most of that time being in a more rural area up north (Akita) and I'd really recommend that northern region of the country. Not only is it beautiful, but the food is awesome and there's still a surprising number of things to do.  I've also heard good things about Hokkaido, although I didn't get to make it up that way myself. If I ever go back, I want to hit up the Sapporo brewery there.

It's a silly design.

I don't know man. One has to do some hardcore jumps in logic to find the design silly, specially looking for a second your avatar and be reminded of that really weird figure for the Amazon.

I finished the legend of drizzt books 1-3 that are wrapped in one book. I loved it. They do some interesting stuff with D&D lore and there are good twists given Drizzt's background. It is all pretty straightforward but it is a damn fun journey.

Complaint about the set. In the last book there were groups of blank pages a out every 30 pages or so. I was forced to buy that book, Sojourn, on kindle

If you want to buy any of the Drizzt books signed by RA Salvatore, let me know. I have a few ;-)


Reading The Seven Forges. It is an interesting book series so far. Only on book 2.
