#12536799 The Video Game Soundtrack Deals Thread (OP Updated 01/24/15)

Posted by R. Kasahara on 27 February 2015 - 09:06 PM

I only learned today that the Skies of Arcadia Original Soundtrack has been on iTunes since late November 2014 (it's also at Amazon if your prefer that).

The original CD version of the Eternal Arcadia/Skies of Arcadia OST has been one of the most sought-after game soundtracks out there for at least a decade, and it commands a high price on the after-market. This new digital release was an instant must-have for me, and I'm sure it is (or will be) for others. Just wanted to spread the word :)

Hank is gonna be a daddy soon


I imagined that spoken in Homer Simpson's voice and it sounded vaguely creepy (in a Homer Simpson kinda way).

Unboxed and played around with Nendoroid Link today: http://myfigurecolle...picture/1200305, http://myfigurecolle...picture/1200306 (ETA: new links; edited and reuploaded the pics)

I'm not the biggest Zelda fan, but glad I got him. He's one of the better SD action figure releases from last year.


#12431164 Beginner to "Ghost in the Shell" & "Fullmetal Alchemist"

Posted by R. Kasahara on 21 January 2015 - 11:45 PM

My husband and I plowed through most of the GitS anime in 2013. The order we watched was:

- Ghost in the Shell (1995 movie)

- Stand Alone Complex

- Stand Alone Complex 2nd Gig

- Solid State Society

 

We also currently have ARISE in our anime backlog. Haven't seen Innocence or any other GitS anime, and we've read the first single-volume manga (it was okay, and isn't Shirow's best).

 

Personally, I found the first season of GitS: SAC to be the best of the bunch, but your mileage may vary.

 

As for Fullmetal, I've mainly just read the manga, which is a masterpiece. Aside from that, I've seen a few episodes of the first anime series, but wasn't impressed; the general consensus among fans is that Brotherhood is better (and more faithful to the manga), but I haven't seen any of that one.

Been playing Pokemon SoulSilver and SMT: DS: Raidou I (I am not typing the full name here). Pokemon is Pokemon, though Ekans is the dumbest Poke-name I have ever seen. Raidou is all right; it's somewhat sub-par in the story department (so far), but I really like the setting.

Also, Pillars of Eternity comes out on March 26, apparently.

Good morning, RPG Thread :) I come bearing an early Christmas present for you all.

 

I usually do holiday-themed fanart this time of year, but for 2014, I made an RPG instead! It's super short, but I hope you enjoy it all the same - http://cascadia.brainscraps.net

Opened my PQ Wild Card edition and got a scare when I saw two huge cracks in the CD. Turns out they were on the plastic protective bit covering the CD! Whew.

Anyway, still don't know when I can start it. Can't do it this weekend and I'm going to be busy until mid-December, at least. Gotta love this time of year :razz:

Which reminds me, I haven't even opened Fantasy Life yet...

Have a good Thanksgiving, all. Don't spend too much on Steam ;)

My husband finally beat Final Fantasy VI tonight.

Next on the agenda (provided I can tear him away from WoW's new expansion; he had actually asked me to hide his copy of Draenor until FFVI was beaten) is to introduce him to SEGA Fantasy VI:



The original Xbox as Umaro = still the best casting ever.


#12219244 What is your holiday gaming wish list

Posted by R. Kasahara on 07 November 2014 - 06:05 PM

Get through as much of my backlog as possible by the end of the year so I don't have to feel (as) guilty when Steam's holiday sales roll around >_>;
 
I have one preordered game due in (Persona Q), and after that, I'm done buying physical games for awhile unless I find a really good deal on something I've been considering. Much the same goes for consoles as well; I'd like a PS3 and WiiU, but am more than willing to wait on those until I've made further progress with my backlog.

(6060 JPY, ~$64)
(2320 JPY, ~$24)
(3490 JPY, ~$37)


What currency converter are you using? The yen hasn't been that high in about a year ^^; 6060 yen should be closer to $54-55 at today's rates.

Quick update on Nendo Link: the HLJ order was fine after all \o/ He's now sitting in my Private Warehouse; will probably have him shipped in late November.
