  1. I had my doubts going into this one - I really liked the way the opera was done by The Black Mages in Darkness and Starlight, and this was done so differently from that take, even though both go for the 'rock opera' style. My doubts faded pretty quickly. The drama created by the chorus was excellent. The stark transitions between the two sides of the 'fight' gave me shivers. Then it relax with a vocal solo or musical interlude briefly, let me catch my breath just long enough before stealing it away again.
  2. I play quite a bit of LoL, and I also contribute to articles on TeamLiquid.net analyzing LoL's tournament scene. I definitely greatly enjoy the game, though it does sometimes bring out the worst in people, it's improved massively over the few years I've played. The tournament scene has also grown, and it's a pretty fun game to watch once you get into it (though the quality of some shoutcasters comes into question at times.) Co-op vs. AI and ARAM are both pretty stress-free ways to play until you are more familiar with the game (shit, I've played over 1000 games and I probably play more ARAM than I do summoner's rift now.) If that's not enough, playing with friends is another great option - friends are a lot more likely to give criticism in a constructive manner. I'd certainly be willing to lend a helping hand if you want to give it another shot, this time with friends guiding you rather than jumping alone into the deep end.
  3. You kiddin me? I AM playing the game again - I started a fresh playthrough in my [limited] free-time when the Disc1 album came out for kickstarter backers, on the GBA re-release (wow, the translation is so much better, but ugh, gba sound is worse than snes..) I was a little sad that it didn't get released yet, I can't wait!
  4. This track only had to do one thing to win me over: creep me out. I'm going to go hide under my bed now.
  5. The link in the OP for the Balance&ruin remix contest v2 is broken:

    http://zirconstudios.com/FF6_Contest_2

    because the .rar at the end is omitted.

    Should be

    (It's working in your other post where you announced the winners, though.)

  6. I had been waffling on whether it would be worth getting a Sunday-only pass for PAX East... I'm not waffling anymore.
  7. I know what you mean - this truly epic. Not epic like the internet meme, but epic like Homer's Iliad.
  8. Sign me up too! Huge fan, and I'll be likely travelling to see him in concert even if I don't win. Witnessed him in concert at Anime Boston 2010 and it was absolutely STUNNING. (and went to a Q&A session too! He says he would want to cosplay as a chocobo!)
