  1. Tactics Ogre is fantastic and I"m happy to hear it inspired you! How far are you in?

    I haven't been doing nearly enough writing, so I'll try to do more today. But then, I also restarted Chrono Trigger - mostly because of your list - and it's so nice. Hope it doesn't totally kill my productivity!
  2. As you and I both know, just because it's made for kids doesn't mean it can't be appealing to adults.

    I just started Tactics Ogre and it's inspiring me to get to work on a story I've been mulling for awhile.
  3. Who knows But I mean, I think even Sakaguchi himself said FF is for kids and that older fans should just let it go, so maybe I shouldn't worry too much
  4. Maybe a bit of both?
  5. We'll see if we'll give Millennium a go. I remember my mom being a huge fan of both the X-Files and Millennium, and I heard the X-Files actually had an episode that served as the finale for Millennium.

    In other news, I'm having this weird epiphany. I've been reading up on some old RPGs that I loved, including Breath of Fire, Xenogears, Chrono Trigger, etc. and... I've come to realize that I really don't care about FF anymore. And it's not really just the uncertain future to come, but for some reason I feel like I've lost my emotional connection with the series somewhere along the way, probably around the time I did the marathon. The only titles that legit bring me joy when I think about them are the Ivalice games, and maybe VI. The rest doesn't really seem to do it for me anymore. And now I wonder if this is just a temporary crisis or have I just... grown out of it?
  6. Very true. Like the only shows I can think of that come close to it are shows that were around the same time like Millennium, which I think was made by the same group funny enough.
  7. Yeah, we recently had a conversation at work about how back in the day, there was really nohinglike it and how the tv show lineup is now flooded with things that are derivative of it but just cant really capture that magic. I see it as a product of its time that has had a huge influence on pop culture, redefining how we take in our media, and its really hard to replicate that effecf
  8. I'm happy to hear you're enjoying it. X-Files was a big part of my childhood growing up so I had a blast rewatching the first five seasons a year or two ago. Sadly, it starts to falter after awhile but it had a pretty strong run. What makes me sad is that I've yet to find a show that really captures what it did so well to replace it. Even the new season felt a bit off the mark.
  9. So in X-Files matters, we've reached season five (just watched 'Post-Modern Prometheus') and I have to say, the thing I probably love the most about the X-Files is that it really never treats itself too seriously - there's always room for making fun of itself and redefining what it is. It's as serious as it needs to be in the myth arc episodes, which are mostly good for it, but probably my favorite monster of the week episodes are the ones with humor in it (or the really smurfed up ones). The ones that are just super serious and not really out there (most of the ones focusing on 'Nam vets, and there have been quite a few now, actually) always feel like kind of the wasted opportunity. It's when the series goes tongue in cheek that I feel really at home. Episodes like 'Humbug', 'Clyde Buckman's Final Repose', 'War of the Coprophages', 'Jose Chung's From Outer Space', 'Small Potatoes' and, most recently to me, 'Post-Modern Prometheus just make me feel that I really love this show and am so glad it's part of my life now. And there's a similar vibe in even slightly more sinister episodes like 'Syzygy', 'Quagmire' and 'Detour'. It's those little bits of humor, wit, and incredible chemistry between the two leads that makes this show really worthwhile.

    Both the wife and I are so glad we got into this series.
  10. Better than not starting.
