  1. Yeah, I haven't watched his retrospective on FFXII yet, but he paid it some heavy lip service for his Vagrant Story one. I'm debating about listing to his monstrous three part discussion on Xenogears. I liked his retrospective on it, but not sure if I want to listen to him and a few other guys try to dissect the plot. I'd rather read a transcript than listen to them.
  2. Yeah, though I imagine our backgrounds are a bit different in that regard, considering he often mentions he’s a sound designer by profession, which I honestly know nothing about (and I do disagree with some of his takes on the music). Still, I do enjoy watching him occasionally. I was very pleasantly surprised when during his FF retrospective series he reached XII and had a lot of praise for it.
  3. I figure you would know this guy, especially since he seems to care a lot about the musical scores of games which reminded me of you.
  4. Because it is the one bad track in a rather superb soundtrack that also happens to be the one track you'll hear the most. Granted, I don't hate it quite as much as FFX's battle theme but of RPGs with good OSTs, it is noticeably bad.
  5. Resonant Arc is pretty cool. Though I feel he makes some grand sweeping statements at times, overall I think he’s pretty diligent and thorough in his videos and has a very nice voice

    I will also forever fail to understand why people hate this theme so much
  6. I've been listening to a YouTuber named Resonant Arc who is reviewing a bunch of old Square games, and he brought ot my attention the funniest, if also most appropriate description for the CC Battle theme Gale.

    "This is the song you hear when you get molested by clowns in hell"

    I'm now going to imagine Pennywise molesting me every time I hear this track now.
  7. It looked very pretty in the documentary series, well until the actual war part started and we saw bodies and concentration camps. Hell they had interviews with a lot of people in the war, including the general who was convicted of war crimes a few years ago and drank poison at his sentencing. The documentary was done about six months after the peace accords done by the Clinton Administration, so there is a host of info that hadn't been discovered yet and I believe a few more years of skirmishes and fighting.

    I feel the most amusing part was how every time you thought you knew the good guys, they turned around and did something reprehensible. Like the Croats plotting behind the Muslim Bosnian's to carve up their territory with their sworn enemy the Serbs, or how the Muslim Bosnian's started off protecting themselves from the aggressive Serbs only to turn around and want to keep the war going once they actually started winning with the backing of the Croats and UN. In fact it's amusing how often that part actually happened. Or how the Serbians, who kind of kickstarted the whole conflict under Milosevic, ultimately were the ones trying to stop the conflict in Bosnia. Yet their Serbian counterparts kept getting too greedy for land and purging the Muslim/Croat populations out. It was interesting to revisit the details after so long since I vaguely remember the war in my childhood.

    As for Tactics Ogre, I've been reintroduced to why I hate aspects of the job systems once again. I finally unlocked the Fusiler Job and I'm trying to level him up along with the Princess Job, before tackling the very final dungeon. The fact equipment is based on levels is stupid in this game and simply punishes you for using new classes. I mean I got a gun expert class and he can't even use the most basic of guns until Lv. 15. What the smurf? They should have either dropped the level/equipment mechanic or simply allowed new jobs to start at a level equivalent to the party average. It's not like it would be broken out of the gate since you still wouldn't have any skills for the class or new recruit.
  8. I think they’re doing pretty OK nowadays. It’s Western Europe that’s currently rediscovering fascism and the far right currently I know that the Balkans have a reputation of being cheap and pretty, so it’s quite a popular tourist destination, though I’ve never been there.
  9. In related news to Tactics Ogre, I've been watching a BBC documentary series about the Yugoslav Wars. Been really interesting. I sort of feel like Slovenia and Macedonia were the only two sane republics in the former country. Which is probably;y why they didn't have counterparts in TO since it sounds like they stayed out of the heaviest fighting. Are the Balkans always this messed up?
  10. Soon as I finish 4 Heroes of Light.
