  1. I'm somewhat casual on math rock as I like some of the adjacent stuff (like post-rock), nice video about math rock. Have you heard black midi? Maybe on the more extreme end of the spectrum, but this year they knocked it out of the park:
  2. A few days ago I put down the Switch for now and began playing Bravely Default, I'm about 6 hours in and my initial fears that the game was going to be a cringefest of RPG clichés disappeared after an hour or two, still a little juvenile for my taste but it's alright, nice game so far.
  3. Updated my original post, so I set Xenogears aside for a while now (not enjoying disc 2 to be honest), got a Switch earlier this year so that has kept me busy. Anyways set the Switch aside for a while and to jump back to my backlog so I picked up Phantasy Star 4, playing an old school RPG was a welcome change, the story decent and even good at times, cutscenes were cool, reminded me of the PC Engine/TurboGrafx-CD style, most characters are well developed, my complains probably due to technical limitations since I can't help but compare this game to the excellent SNES RPGs released back then, things like lack of overworld map, limited item space, and the lack of descriptions for the many techniques, skills and items was annoying, even the cost in techniques is not shown in the menu (at least they show it in battle), overall it just doesn't compare favorably to the SNES cream of the crop RPGs, it feels kind of closer to Breath of Fire and quite far from Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy 6, my rating 7/10.
  4. The Legend of Zelda, played it for months, maybe a year or more, I had a friend who was playing as well and we shared secrets, progress, etc. That kept me playing long enough to beat it.
  5. Hold on to it, this one is a grail, anybody going for a CIB GBC is missing this one, maybe about 10 have shown up?
  6. Seen The Cook, The Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover but it was about 20 years ago so honestly I don't remember much, also watched El Topo around that time and really liked it, to be fair all Jodorowsky films are good, I'd say Santa Sangre is my favorite. One if my favorite films of all time is 24 Hour Party People, love the story, the music, the characters, the humor, it's really great but I don't think many people have seen it.
  7. Had to delete Lil Xan and Blood on the Dance Floor from my YT watch history, didn't wanted to vote for either but settled for the kid high on sleeping pills.
  8. 1111 for me, first one was a bit tough but had to go with Plush, I like earlier REM better. I'm rooting for Tears for Fears from now on
  9. 2211 I only hesitated a bit on the 4th matchup, my non-metalhead vote goes to Master of Puppets, it's a banger and more interesting/challenging than the Nightwish song (it's nice by the way, made me think it was almost too nice for a metal song).
  10. LucasArts had a hint line that charged per minute, the motivation to make the puzzles really difficult to figure out was there. I remember reading a review where they mentioned it was good thing they included the in game hint system as a substitute for the old hint line.
  11. Just found about this website, seems good: https://www.music-map.com/
  12. An easy way to find new music is pick an album or artist you really like and on Spotify or YouTube Music use the radio feature, it will come up with a playlist of similar music, it's a little hit or miss but just skip and take note of the stuff that sounds interesting so you can check that band's album or their biggest singles, you should be able to find at least a few songs to add to your playlist. Another way is to go through playlists by genere, the more niche the genere the better, you got to be very patient but eventually you'll find something you really like.
  13. Dude Hunky Dory is one of my favorite albums of all time, top 3 I'd say along with Siamese Dream from Smashing Pumpkins and Psychocandy from The Jesus and Mary Chain. I never really took a deep dive into Bowie but some albums once they clicked they were pure bliss, especially Hunky Dory. It seems that Bowie never took a false step thought his career, whatever he was up to he was at least (very) competent, I rated him 10/10 out of the joy of thoughly enjoying Hunky Dory and Ziggy Stardust, everything else is just icing the cake.
  14. Are we still on topic? Mine would be: NES>Gameboy>SNES>PS>PSP>Wii>DS>PS3>3DS>Switch Picked the PlayStation over the N64 because it had SquareSoft on board and of course Final Fantasy VII, I enjoyed a lot of RPGs late in the SNES lifespan so going for the PS was the right choice. I got the PSP because of the emulators and that it played original Playstation games, the Wii was a gift from my wife (then girlfriend). Sometime later I started collecting videogames and picked up a bunch of consoles, listed only the ones I actuality played a considerable amount of time.
