I listened to a few tracks from the OST and I think it was probably a misstep to opt out of the chiptunes/vaporwave/ambient music of Fez, Monument Valley, Dustforce, etc. Especially when the style chosen is chamber, neo classical music. It’s well done but it doesn’t complement the art deco/geometric style.

Not trying to be overly critical, but why would you write a whole article on not using a term and then not provide an alternative?

Platform Adventure could work in my opinion.

I listened to five of their tracks, (Chrono Trigger, SM64, SMK64, Star Fox 64, and Yoshi’s Story) and I have to say I’m not digging the artistic direction they took them in. I’m not saying they’re poor works of art, but definitely not conjuring up any nostalgia for me :(

I find it odd that he gave such a hard and fast “no” to the idea of recreating the puzzle gameplay on screen when a well-crafted mystery plot-line (or even the lighter fare mystery plot lines of Harry Potter) could translate very well into that same sensation. I’m feeling like a mix of Interview with a Vampire’s Read more

As someone who has watched Kingsglaive I can assure you, it adds more confusion than it takes away. Watch at your own risk of insanity.

The OA is referred to as the Michigan Miracle a number of times. But yes, Homer is from Missouri.

I definitely think the show could have used some more color, if for no other reason than a literal diversity of races and ethnicities could have bolstered the theme of connectedness. However, two things stand out: fist, for whatever reason, the origins of almost all the characters are all very white. Russia, Read more

The story is one flawed part of that whole, which is why it was in the disappointing however its many successes still makes it a game very much worth playing. Read more

The general lauditory tone of the review implied that the rest of the game redeemed the flawed story :-P Read more

I think a key piece to your review is whether you watched Kingsglaive and/or Brotherhood beforehand. I am on my second play-thru of the game and I agree with almost everything you have presented except for the storyline being able to be redeemed through non-manditory vignettes. The plot simply is not there—even when Read more

I’m not sure if I discussed it here or elsewhere but the snake scene in my mind is indicative of one of the animals they can swallow during their NDE. If you look at the scene’s opening shot we see the familiar layout: five glass cages foreshadowing haps bunker, the aquarium where Homer eats the sea creature, (and Read more

When she wakes up she forcefully asks if she flatlined. I think the implication is she was wanting to die, but that really wouldn’t do much seeing as she already had all five movements and dying wouldn’t activate any portals. She would have simply come back to life. So yeah I don’t know why exactly she felt the need Read more

I think I approved all of your comments but I’m still confused. Is there a point in one of the episodes you think he had a plane crash or are you speculating it happened off screen, perhaps after he abandoned OA?

Wait... What’s this detail about the plane crash? Please elaborate

That’s the whole question of whether OA is telling the truth or a lie. If she knows the depth of the pit, which she shouldn’t be able to, seeing as she wasn’t told the location by Hap, then it could indicate that she had done research herself when planning the fake narrative to tell to her Michigan five.

I wish I had figured this out sooner but I’ve come upon a bombshell of a clue. The OA off-hand mentions that when they lose the envelope and Homer’s ring that it’s lost “8,000ft” below the ground. I thought that was a little specific of a detail and it turns out there’s only one mine in North America that goes that
