    I actually really enjoy most of his battle themes, except CT’s regular battle. Sure, he goes all out with the more important boss fights, but I really enjoy that subtle constant-tension loop in Xenogears’ battle themr

    Yeah, JRPGs need more battle tracks. The only thing I’m dreading about Xenoblade X is the fact that Black Tar is the only normal battle theme. And I like Black Tar.

    Also, I just noticed something very interesting about the Xenogears battle theme. I know a lot of people hate it for some reason, but I really dig it. When you listen to it, it gives you the impression of going in circles with a constant buildup of tension but no clear resolution. And this is done in typical Mitsuda, non-functional fashion - there is no tonic. The chords build tension but never get resolved. Pre-dominants become dominants which become pre-dominants again, and this really keeps you on your toes throughout because there really isn’t a moment where you can just take a moment to relax. It’s glorious.

    Okay so I just watched the Millennium crossover episode and at the very end, Scully and Mulder finally got together. And I think they actually did a good job on this because the next episode is all about the paranormal mystery and nobody really mentions what’s happened, but you can see the subtle difference in how they y’all to each other. I think they were really worried they’d alienate the non-shipping fan base and ultimately, I think the approach they took really works.

    I remember my mom watching both series religiously. I was also scared of both as a kid

    Working on a reply for you btw! Should have it ready by tomorrow

    Yeah, I get that, but I feel like that’s all still there. Like, the season 6 finale/season 7 premiere three-parter was awesome with its ancient astronaut plot line coming in. Felt really fitting now that I’m playing Xenogears And really, up to season five, I agreed with you but with how endearing season six was, the progression to romance really feels natural.

    We watched one episode of Millennium and while it was cool, we decided we really wanna keep watching X-files, so we’ll leave that for another time

    Okay so we just finished season six and started season seven, though we’ll probably take a break here to watch Millennium. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed the season. It really didn’t have a lot of bad or boring episodes - like, two at most. The best thing was that pretty much every episode, from the mythology to the MOTW episodes, had a more or less overt focus on Mulder and Scully’s feelings for each other. Whether it’s characters being parallels to how they should just get it on already themselves or just seeing how much their bond transcends pretty much anything else seen on TV, whether you interpret it as romantic or not (and I really can’t see how you could see it as anything but that at this point, and I was a Mulder-Scully-romance-skeptic from day one), I loved it so much and I feel CHEATED that they didn’t bring us a resolution to that in the finale/7thbseason premiere. I really hope that they do get together pretty soon because I don’t think another season so brimming with sexual tension would impress me as much as this one.

    I just beat the sewers and thought they were pretty fun, actually! I have no idea where that criticism comes from.

    Really jealous you got Ravness, since she looks really cool and I love that she’s an Agrias expy but she sadly does in the non-law routes

    It’s true. You can tell the team was inexperienced but they still did a hell of a good job making a game that’s really immersive and just gets you hooked. I’m currently in Nortune and Rico has just joined me to clear the sewers.

    Funny how a lot of things that bothered me about Xenogears in the past don’t bother me at all anymore. I’m having kind of the opposite of my recent FFVII replay - everything is just so much better than I remember it being

My Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten: Final Fantasy III

by Wolf Kanno on 03-07-2018 at 08:10 PM
Blah blah blah Top 100 blah blah blah too many good games to list. Blah blah blah, games that weren't good enough for my list but still excellent nonetheless.


Of the Classic series within Final Fantasy, FFIII was the last one for me to play, partly cause I didn't emulate very often and partly because I had hoped SE would come to their senses and re-release this title.

My Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten: I am Setsuna

by Wolf Kanno on 02-23-2018 at 06:38 AM
So I did my Top 100 last year, and this year, I'm focusing on a few entries that didn't make the cut for one reason or another. I'll start off by saying that most of the games mentioned in this blog series are all worth playing, they simply just haven't enraptured me enough to place them on my List. I started with Demon's Souls, and i have about 24 more entries to go. I know I said it would be like four or five, but giving myself some time to think about it made me realize how many great games I

My Top 100's Lost but not Forgotten: Demon's Souls

by Wolf Kanno on 01-22-2018 at 03:23 AM
So as many people know, last year I did my Top 100 Games list, but as usual, there were a lot of games I loved that just didn't make the mark for one reason or another. I didn't really want to make a thread about it though, and figured the Blog would suit it better because there is likely only five or six games I wish to highlight here. I also feel annoyed I never use the Blog feature as much since it feels like a better platform for these types of discussions. In addition to these blogs, I do plan

Mononoke Hime

by Wolf Kanno on 11-08-2017 at 01:25 AM

A few days ago, I went to a midnight showing of Princess Mononoke at the Esquire Theater downtown. The very same theater I went to watch it the first time back in 1999 during it's initial release in the States. At that time, I was an avid anime fan who would consume whatever I could find as the medium was only in the beginning phases of it's explosive popularity in the 2000s, so the prospect of being able to watch an anime flick in an actual movie

Fighting Evil by Moonlight...

by Wolf Kanno on 06-14-2016 at 08:21 AM
So tonight I finally broke out a Christmas present I received several years ago that I never watched. Partly because for the first time in a long time, I felt ready for it. I acquired a DVD set that featured the entire DiC dub of the first two seasons of Sailor Moon, so basically the original dub, not the new one. Original Western score, Sailor Says, and the whole "Serena and Darien" name changes.

It was glorious.
