    TV Shows

    I loved the ending of Seinfeld where the main characters were on trial for their behavior throughout the series. I like the ending of Frasier where Frasier is chatting to a woman on a plane. I like the original ending of Futurama, the final episode of Season 4. I think it was called “The Devil’s Hands are Idle Playthings.” I seem to remember both the UK Office and Extras having great endings. Probably my favourite show ever is Northern Exposure. It’s a shame what happened to the series but I like the closing scene where they play Iris Dement’s “Our Town”. I feel like I’m forgetting loads.
  3. Play A bunch of indie games on the Switch - Celeste, Forgotton Anne, Subsurface Circular and Steamworld Heist - all of them have been great. Want E3 - in particular to see more of Cyberpunk 2077 and Final Fantasy VII. Total War: Three Kingdoms Bin Too much crashing out on my bed and too much living on my phone.

    Slay The Spire

    Waiting for the Switch version.
  5. Apparently From Soft’s open world George R.R. Martin collaboration is going to be announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference, and has been in development for three years... https://gematsu.com/2019/05/george-rr-martin-ive-consulted-on-a-video-game-out-of-japan
  6. Well, it wasn’t called Xbox Game Studios at the time lol...

    Films

    Speaking of Toho, before Detective Pikachu they also played the trailer for Makoto Shinkai’s follow up to Your Name, called “Weathering With You” in English. Terrible title but the film looks lovely, and it sounds like Radwimps are going to provide another great soundtrack as well. They also played the trailer for Dragon Quest: Your Story which I’m pumped for. Not least because I love Arimura Kasumi...
  8. Wait, we’re also including PC games? Then Age of Empires 1 & 2. Love those games to death.
  9. Been listening to a couple of kind of low key singer songwriter albums and I love them. Wooh Dang by Daniel Norgren Daniel Norgren is a singer songwriter from Sweden. It’s my first time listening to him but I love this album. If anything it reminds me of Creedence Clearwater Revival. Especially the louder songs on the album like this, and a couple of others. It’s a mix of classic sounding blues-rock songs like this and some absolutely beautiful ballads, which are mostly direct and simple love songs (like “So Glad” and “You’re the Day that’s Just Begun”). I don’t know how to describe but it’s one of the purest and most genuine sounding albums that I’ve heard in a long time. In the Shape of a Storm by Damien Jurado Damien Jurado is an artist who’s had a long career but i only started listening to him last year after his excellent album “The Horizon Just Laughed”. In The Shape of a Storm is a very stripped down follow up where it’s just him and an acoustic guitar. But for what it is, I’m really enjoying it. Jurado has a really expressive voice. I was going to say that Daniel Norgren sounds like another Swedish artist, The Tallest Man on Earth (whose album The Wild Hunt is one i’ve been listening to regularly for nearly a decade), but if anything the style of this album is closer to TTMOE, although Jurado’s voice is much deeper and lower.
  10. Fable 2, Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey
  11. Might pick it up myself. I have no shortage of new games to play but a run through of FFVII sounds nice.
  12. Music bug fixed: https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2019-05-18-final-fantasy-7-patch-fixes-long-running-music-bug Hopefully the same bug will be fixed on IX.

    Watched Detective Pikachu in the cinema tonight. It’s the kind of adventure film I used to watch all the time when I was younger and I wish there were more of (there probably are). I really enjoyed it. The CGI Pokemon are cool. There were a few Pokemon I didn’t recognise, but most of the Pokemon were from the original 150 so that was nice. I liked the way they incorporated the original theme song. I liked the simple, almost touching ending. I liked the totally random reference to Seinfeld and also Home Alone. A solid 7/10.
  14. Yeah that sounds great.

    Chapter 2 (The Old Site) was ace. The music is incredible. I don’t want any more chase sections in the game though lol.

    What's your....

    To answer the previous question, I wish I had treated my GB/GBC/GBA boxes better. I wish my copy of Pokemon Red was still intact. I feel like that would nearly be my most prized possession. As it is, I would say my copies of FFVIII and IX for the PS1 I would never part with. My most prized possessions that I have with me here in Japan would probably be Mother 3 for the GBA and No no Kuni for the DS. I’m looking forward to getting my hands on the Hollow Knight collector’s edition.
  21. Changed the topic title. I would never have noticed that!
  22. I also picked up Steamworld Heist, Kingdom New Lands and Subsurface Circular.
  23. Started this earlier on the Switch. Played the opening 20 minutes or so. The game reviewed well when it came out last year and the comparisons to Studio Ghibli were enough to convince me to buy it. The game is basically a side-scrolling adventure in a Ghibli-esque world, or something out of an Enid Blyton story. The setting seems to be a world where forgotten things go, most of the characters in the game seem to be objects and household items, things like that, but you play as a girl. There’s also an older man who is trying to develop a way to get back to the real world. From what I gathered. The game looks beautiful and the opening is very cinematic.

    Started this today. Completed the prologue and chapter one. The chapter end art was lovely. Seems good so far, the NPC interaction with the photographer from Seattle was nice.
  25. Can we have a moratorium on the ranking of the FF games in this thread?
