    I tend to fall more in line with the usual popular classics like the NES Mega Man or Castlevania titles. Breath of Fire has always had pretty strong OSTs as well, if a bit unconventional for the genre. Again, that's Capcom and like Square, they have always had strong music for their games. Honestly, listening to some of Yoko Shimomoru's early works, especially on the original SFII OST is pretty sublime.

    I feel a lot of music back then gets a bit glossed over outside of a few standout tracks from popular titles. I feel the limitations of the tech meant the composers back then had to really work some magic to make something out of it.
  3. View Conversation
    Yeah, that's definitely an improvement over a lot of the hardware at the time.

    It had a pretty snazzy audio come to think of it. I take it you've been playing some classic Ys?

    I understand all too well about distractions. I think the easiest thing to do is simply find the simplest and easiest thing you need to do and start there. Usually for me, I'll get on a roll of productivity if I start like that. Same with exercise. I also try to avoid certain websites nowadays that I know are pointless for me, or in cases like EoFF, I convince myself to only reply to interesting threads or comments and then check out for the day. Struggling with the last one, but I'm at least getting better about noticing when I linger on the forum despite a lack of activity.

    My blood pressure is fine, it was more a figure of speech. Though it does run in my family, so mine could be pretty high for my age and lifestyle.

    I might be able to relate to that, but I usually try to stay clear of things like that for the sake of my nerves and blood pressure. I'm sorry to hear you're frustrated.

    I'm doing okay, trying and losing a fight to stay on a schedule to be more productive. I keep piling on distractions. Have a minor vacation coming up, so I'm hoping a change of scenery and seeing some old college friends will improve my state of mind.

    How about you, other than the frustration part?

    Those types of videos help me out sometimes, but I'm usually so picky nowadays that I tend to be more selective. My issue comes from a gotta catch them all mentality so I'll find a new series I like and then proceed to pick up the whole franchise. Kind of the reason I haven't been jumping into Legend of Heroes or some other recommendations that come my way.
  9. View Conversation
    I get that, and that's why I do regularly replay my older games. My issue is that I binged bought too many games in the past, and I'm having buyers remorse because I haven't even touched any of these games "I just had to have". For the most part, its why I'm trying my best to not buy anything new until I start chipping away at the pile first.

    I'd been meaning to for awhile. I've been having a blast but I feel I really should focus more on my unplayed games. I've beaten maybe half the games I actually own for the PS4 and haven't even started the other half. I just don't want a repeat of the PS3 where I kept picking up games for it, but never really got around to any of them. Bad habit I started last gen. My Steam list is the worst, which is why I don't bother with Steam sales anymore.

Interesting Routes: Aqua

by Karifean on 11-30-2017 at 10:21 PM
There's something truly magical about Himawari that I didn't really realize back when I first read it but have come to appreciate about it more and more.


Himawari has an enforced reading order, something you don't see a lot in galge without a strong plot focus. However, like other visual novels such as Fate/Stay Night can use it to drive the plot and themes forward in parallel tales, so too does Himawari use it to give us ample

Dies Irae Review

by Karifean on 08-03-2017 at 01:32 AM
Dies irae ~Amantes amentes~ is a visual novel created by Light. It was one of the most renowned JP-only VNs before finally getting a localization in June of this year.


Come, gather and bear witness to my opera, now in the making.

Its script is the height of clichť, I am forced to admit. And yet...

Its actors are of the finest fold; beyond exquisite.

Thus, I believe you will find it enthralling.

Umineko: Episode 4 Tea Party

by Karifean on 07-09-2017 at 09:57 PM
You talk too much. All you have to do is honestly say 'I'll kill you'.

For those that don't know, the climaxes of Episodes 4, 5 and 6 are my 3 favorite moments in Umineko (which also makes them my 3 favorite moments in fiction overall), all for their own individual reasons. I've been dying to talk about them for a while. I figured I'd start with the Episode 4 Tea Party, quite possibly the greatest example of Ryukishi's writing skill of them all.
