I never expected to be playing Mary Skelter: Nightmares, but now I am! It's one of the odder messes I've seen, though I suppose it's better than my previous Idea Factory experience. Why are so many gift items present to confuse? Why do the ladies…
Feels like it's been awhile since I posted anything. That's not because I stopped watching movies though, not at all. So let's take a few recent examples.
Starry Eyes (2015) is an extremely good horror movie that succeeded in getting me wholly inv…
It's been long enough that I'm ready to try another SMT title. Here we go, Strange Journey Redux!
Odds that it will be completed in anything like a timely fashion are slim because I know this thing is a beast in terms of size.
Ha! Friend Request (2016) gave me some great laughs. It's completely awful and shouldn't be seen by anyone seeking a genuinely good movie, understand that right now! I couldn't help but laugh at it though, and I watched the thing alone. With a g…
Defenders of Oasis is interesting in certain respects, and I have to give it credit for that. When a character goes to sleep after talking thrice to a sheep (thus counting it), that's kind of amusing. On the other hand its combat order is so incre…

5 will need a remake from Falcom sometime in order to happen. At the rate Falcom's been going, I wouldn't be shocked to see it happen. Plus the original Ys 5 was dull and unmemorable.
With regard to Memories of Celceta in particular, I suppose it …
I'm very ready for Lufia: The Legend Returns to be over. Too many identical dungeons with identical progression and irritating mechanics. Oh, and now it actually ignores the one part of the very first Lufia that I actually remember. Great.
Beware! Children at Play (1989) is actually the first Troma movie I recall seeing in its entirety. It's out of print and costs some cash to acquire, and I don't really think it's worth the expense at all.
It begins with a boy and his dad out on a c…
Yeah, I'm definitely finding that the money yield in particular was increased. I did a little extra fighting for spell leveling, but nothing major, and I haven't had a problem affording new gear. Gold Isle did take everything I had on me, but it w…
I don't remember having to call Flammie, but I do remember needing to painstakingly guide everyone along in the original version. Here at least they don't have to be on the same screen all the time in case of, I don't know, being put to sleep or ba…
Results time? I think yes.

It's actually a shorter list to go through what WAS changed for the new Secret of Mana instead of what wasn't, and I'll probably be doing that soon. I'm up to five total crashes now. The automatic saving does help, and at least it restarts much fa…
Huh. Yeah, this new Secret of Mana is pretty similar to the original, but what changes have been made are mostly for the worse. Why do enemies have to sit there for so long after taking a hit, not reacting to any additional attacks, before they fi…
I think the validity of most people finding Tales of Hearts R forgettable is amply demonstrated by how people want to talk about plenty of other entries from the series instead of it right now. I should treasure this period when I actually remember…
Let's head back to the 90s for a bit with some widely disparate movies united only by being from that decade.
The Last Boy Scout (1991) is something that inspired a variety of reactions within me. I'm going to chalk most of that up to Shane Black's…
