    This is a great band, and their videos are wacky and fun, so I highly recommend checking out a few of them.

    Mitsuda always had a more refined style to his work, which likely comes from his more classically trained background in music. You should check out Michika Naruke's work on Wild Arms. She does some really interesting things and has a nice balance of high energy anime pieces and more classical choral works. Looking at her Wikipedia entry, I'm sad to learn she hasn't done much outside of Wild Arms, and a few pieces for the Smash Bros. series. On the flip side, it looks like she spent all that time after the series floundered working on more personal works, so good for her.

    I'll have to check out both when the time comes.

    That does indeed sound like something from Xenogears. Nice find. Wild Arms is an interesting series, I still need to get around to playing the fourth entry which is also on my backlog.

    I've been listening to Wednesday Campanella lately. Love this group, and major crushing on KOM_I, their singer.

    The groups videos are just so creative and I love them.

    Been re-listening to the OST for Wild Ams 1, and I'm still frankly amaze of its overall quality. I've been picking few a few soundtracks while I build a playlist for my novel.

    I've been meaning to check it out. I sort of lost Netflix at the moment, so I'm in the dark again. You should check out Aggretsuko if you haven't.

    That's neat. Yeah, I plan on tackling my backlog a bit more this year. I figure I'll try to finish a game a month, and I may make a thread to get some ideas on which games I should focus on from a list I'll choose. Thankfully, I don't have any major new titles dropping this year, so I should be safe from new game syndrome outside of getting FFLegends II, Nier, and Wind Waker for Christmas.

    I'm sure Karifean is super happy with that gaming lineup though.

    I also want to focus more on my writing. I plan on trying to enter two contests this year, and maybe send something to a publisher as well, though I primarily want to reach a certain point in my novel before year's end. Good luck getting your own writing under control.

    She samples Mitsuda's version of Albedo's theme for one of the battle themes in Xenosaga Episode III as well.

    I feel it's always tough for a new composer taking over a series with an established musical score. Partly because the original score was likely well thought out for the work, so anything they do make is going to probably sound off to more avid fans, and partly because they may feel constricted by what they can create for it. I imagine if I ever get into the comic industry, this will be why I'll have a hard time writing for more established series.

    I've been relistening to the Xenosaga OSTs lately, and while Kaijura has some excellent pieces in Episode II and III, I really can't help but feel how underrated Mitsuda's OST for the first game is. While not every track is a winner, and unfortunately, said tracks got the most air time, this game really did have some fantastic pieces in it. I also appreciate the fact Mitsuda placed a few musical nods back to Xenogears in it as well. Many of the more ominous tracks would feel at home in Gears. His version of Albedo's Theme is more fitting than Kaijura's which sounds more like a theme I'd give to the Testaments.

    Merry Christmas!

    Well that's good news. Any productivity is good if you ask me.

    I keep going back and forth with the game. I like all of the elements of the game, but it just feels like a slog to go through. I can't quite put my finger on why though. Maybe cause it's a game that punishes you for grinding, but if you want all the content, you kind of have to.

    I enjoy story bibles because they both help organize my thoughts, make it way easier to get back to a story I put on hold after I leave if for months with no work, and I feel re-reading it tends to motivate me to get back to work on the project. The last one is especially important for me, since re-reading my work tends to make me zero in on my weaknesses as a writer and discourages me from getting back to work before jumping into revision mode. Whereas re-reading the SB tends to remind me why I wanted to write it in the first place and will likely make me not focus on my awful early drafts and instead refocus on me to move on to get to some of the juicy details from the SB.

Part of your world

by Fynn on 06-06-2017 at 05:37 PM
So there's this nagging issue I've had for quite some time now. It's a pretty abstract issue but one I think is pretty interesting and perhaps even important to share nonetheless. For many reasons, it has only become more pronounced recently.

As some of you may know, I want to be a writer. I try to do as much writing as I can. I even do writing for a living, though as an SEO copywriter, it's not exactly that I have an opportunity to spread my creative wings as part of what keeps giving

On FFVII (part of my Fmarathon rant)

by Fynn on 11-23-2016 at 12:16 PM
Decided this is worthy of being a blog-post, since it turned out to be a much bigger rant than I expected and I'm not sure the marathon's audience is really there for that kind of stuff

Frustrations of the writerly sort

by Fynn on 07-01-2016 at 12:13 PM
So there's this thing I've been struggling for quite some time. I don't want to call it a "writer's block" because it kind of seems like an excuse for being lazy. And it usually doesn't last long. This is something that's been eating at me for a long time.

I just kinda feel that I can't write anymore.

I mean, I still write articles for the site sometimes and I write other texts at my work, but it seems like, creatively, I've dried up. I'll come up with ideas

On story expectations

by Fynn on 03-30-2016 at 12:57 PM
So this is kind of a general discussion, but the general rant I have is based on three popular 3DS RPGs: Bravely Default, Fire Emblem: Awakening, and Shin Megami Tensei IV. Sorry if this is chaotic, as I'm just writing this as it comes into my mind. Also, spoilers from the three games abound.

All of those games were very well received, though for different reasons. SMT is kind of here to serve as a neutral ground, as the evaluation of its story is pretty divided, whereas the consensus

Character Appreciation: Junpei Iori

by Fynn on 03-30-2016 at 11:37 AM
This is in no way an idea I stole from Pumpkin, no siree.


Junpei Iori is a character from the Persona franchise. He first appears in Persona 3 and all of its subsequent releases as a playable party member. He becomes a social link character as well in the female path of Persona 3 Portable, though he isn't date-able. He is also playable in
