August 2008 Nostalgia

This post is old, so what you see here may not reflect my current opinion and mindset, certain information may be outdated, and links may be broken.

DVDs Marathon
Recently, I ordered My Little Pony: The Movie, Babar: The Movie, and Snoopy, Come Home from Amazon. The first two were films I owned and loved on VHS, so I finally decided to upgrade. Oh man. Those two brought back much memories from my childhood. XD. Too bad the last one, as much as I love Peanuts, wasn’t all that great. Of all the feature-length Peanuts film, this is one I have never seen before, so compared to the first two, there were no feelings of nostalgia when I watched it. I mean, it was good for what it was worth, but the other Peanuts films I saw as a child were better.

Old-School RPGs Rock My Soul
I tried the first fifteen minutes of Heroes of Mana. BLEEEEEEEEEH. While the premise was interesting, the battle system was not. *stabs it* WTF. Creating units from a ship? No thank you. Strategy-rpg? Hell no. I stay away from them. Luckily, I tried Final Fantasy 3 DS after that, and I have to say that was much better. It won me over more than HoM did, and OMG. THE OLD-SCHOOL RPG . . . brings back memories of Chrono Trigger, Phantasy Star IV, and even the first two Suikoden games! There was something about the pixelated, 32-bit style overworld map and dungeons that made me go GUH. This cinches it. I may have grown up and live in a 3D animation world — but give me 2D over that any time and any day!

Conclusion
Yes, I’m still a child. Never mind the fact that I work with children, I am a child myself. Always will be apparently.

On a random note, I’ve added more to the ME section of the site. I aimed for the content to be sarcastic as possible, but I am not 100% sure I succeeded.
