    Anime

    I'm watching The Tatami Galaxy at the moment and watched up to episode 8. Not news - it's excellent. Best series I've seen since Cowboy Bebop. The building of layers up episode after episode is really well done and the humour is great. Watching the opening credits you see all of the characters go by and there was one I was very curious about. When he is revealed in Episode 6 was one of the best moments. One problem that I haven't really seen before, is the speed of dialogue means subtitles move a-bit-too-fast but I actually kinda enjoy trying to keep up. Will definitely be buying on Blu-Ray as I can tell this is going to be great for repeat watching to catch all the things I missed first time around.
  2. @Cheyenne - absolutely! The bits of quiet reality are what I really like. There is a lot of sitting around in Whisper and I absolutely adore it. @Nick R Well yeah - I don't think any of the ones left will be a new favourite but could be wrong: Cat Returns Earthsea Ponyo Arrietty Poppy Hill Princess Kaguya When Marnie Was There
  3. Slightly worded wrongly - I have seen the vast majority. I very much enjoyed The Wind Rises and Howl. The only films left for me to watch I have even more strong preconceptions about due to source material or the director.
  4. Whisper of the Heart was not the film I expected it to be and now I wish I'd seen it years ago. The two things I knew about the film (Country Roads and that cat person) were so off-putting in my head yet not indictative of what the movie is actually about. Looking at when it was released, it really feels like the last of the old-school Ghibli movies. I found the dialogue is written in such a mature tone with implication rather than explanation. The sense of location too is very well realised and gave me that feeling of nostalgia for a type of place I've never lived (much like Kiki). The passage of time is really well done too. I've now seen all Ghibli up-to 2001 and nearly everything I'd want to see (but yes, I will see them all eventually). This might be a top 3 for me.
  5. Hikikomori did an excellent video on Deadly Premonition a while ago - hugely spoilerific except for the different version comparison which starts at 49:30: Basically I would definitely recommend not playing the Switch port as your introduction. X360 version is the best available version that isn't full of visual glitches and physic engine problems.
  6. Day 30 - End Credits Music Ahh! Persona 4 Dancing All Night is basically a massive goodbye to the P4 world. Ends with a track which is both heavily disarming with is melancholy underneath a positive exterior, plus the contextual nature of it makes it the obvious choice. I'm robbing those who haven't played the game of this feeling a little bit, but equally I am saving you 100-200 hours across two games to get to this point! This always feels like an end. I too have put all my choices into a playlist here (and removed any long repeating versions so can just play start to finish):
  7. @Qazimod "Localisation" of soundtracks was a very strange thing that Sega seemed to just throw money at during the Saturn-era. It definitely has an strong euro-house vibe but I always thought that was just because it was Jacques natural style. Seems like he had a brief to me... Interestingly I heard this on a Sega Saturn sampler CD - the game is far too difficult (and shit), to want to play it to the end!
  8. Day 29 - Final Boss music Terrible game but an absolutely epic track. Also, got three tracks lined up for tommorow so should be good in case any of you choose the same!
  9. If the Silent Hill rumours with Sony are true - I could see them remaking Silent Hill 1-3 as a stopgap.
  10. Day 28 - music that makes you feel nostalgic Most of the games and tracks I have chosen have an element of nostalgia in them - and I feel now more than ever there it's all there for us so I'm going to use this to focus on nostalgia lost. Specifically trailers and hope. How I looked forward to games in the mid-90s was screenshots in magazines - I adored just seeing pictures of games that hadn't come out and games that might never come out. Anticipation for FF7 was almost entirely through this medium. That all changed with the internet. My earliest internet memories was browsing IGN for games and looking for screenshots I could print out myself. Then the Dreamcast launch hit and I started to utterly devour information on the internet. Internet access was something time limited and so downloading stuff was the way - the smaller the video file the better - single floppy disk size: It's no surprise through my choices here that I was (and still am) a bit of a fan of Sega. When the Dreamcast ended I felt really thankful that I managed to play so many groundbreaking experiences in such a short amount of time. It became a bit of a struggle to figure out which console to buy next (Gamecube or Xbox) but when I downloaded this trailer - in glorious 240p - I think my mind was made up: Dreamcast finished. Sega unstoppable.
  11. Day 27 - Music from a Handheld game Definitely shared my love of this track a few times on here! @Qazimod - I expected a Sonic Rush track from you today but that TWEWY track definitely has similar vibes.
  12. Day 26 - Music from a game you haven't played (yet!) But I have years worth of Day 25 from this Day 14 song.
  13. Tetris / Puyo Puyo etc are puzzle games. Even though they don't have an solution you are constant solving them throughout. The gameworld is totally abstract. Meanwhile Witness / Day of the Tentacle / Myst are all adventure games that happen to have puzzles as a mechanic within the world. Same as Resident Evil.
  14. @Jolly Completely forgot all about that time of the Trocadero DDR experience - it was always Paranoia, Butterfly and the masses of Dutch/German Eurobeat that stick out to me.
  15. Day 25 - Music that gets you pumped Literally.
