Xenogears: Perfect Works

 

Whoa, what have I got here? And where are Elly's clothes? Well, in Japanese media, it's very common for characters to be portrayed as naked when they're represented in a metaphysical world, since they've shed any Earthly additions (Thanks to Shesez on Youtube for this information).

Every so often I like to look at an art book, and Xenogears' Japan-only art book is a good one. As the cover tells you, it's got all kinds of information on the world of the game. It's a crime that this never got any translated versions in the West, though. As for why that is... well, look at the cover. Is that the outline of a nipple? Such vile and evil things are verboten! I've got them too, unfortunately.

Demon's Souls Playthrough

 

Videos. Lots of videos. Also Vagrant Story music. I completely break the game by starting with 10 million souls. Don't worry, I finished the game normally a bunch of times in the past. I'm no cheater!

Highlander (1986)

 

2020 was one of the rougher decades we've had. Rougher than the 2010's, 2000's, 1990's... it's been a while since we had a decade as long and challenging as 2020 was. To celebrate being done with it, here we go. The movie where it all began. I haven't seen this in ages. The show gets compared to the original movie a lot, so I'm interested to see if the movie holds up after all this time. My belief that the show is (usually) the superior of the two might not survive this viewing of the movie, we'll see. There can be only one!
