my first exposure to anime was ronin warriors and voltron. i remember watching vampire hunter d and akira on the science channel with my mom on saturdays. not to mention the art from mega man which i was obsessed with. i grew older and dove headfirst into 'japanimation' as it was commonly known. i saved up all my money to buy dragon ball z vhs tapes from the local suncoast video in the mall...they were usually $40 or so for a tape with 2-3 episodes on it. i also bought a handful at random (armitage the third movie, battle angel alita movie, perfect blue movie, record of lodoss war series). i had a friend who was also into anime and his older brother had a bunch of good vhs tapes too (evangelion, ghost in the shell, others i can't remember). just sort of built from there. once toonami/adult swim came along i got heavy into trigun and cowboy bebop (still my favorite series).

RE: Video Game Music
sorry to be 'that guy' that brings an 8 day old thread back to life but video game music is one of the things i'm most passionate about. i have a very distinct memory of the first time i realized holy crap video games have amazing music...i was playing secret of mana and got to the antlion...once the boss music got to the triumphant movement i just pulled up the ring menu and left the game on in my room for a good 45 minutes.
i have also been recording video game music at home for a number of years. if anyone is interested you can find my recordings for free at http://matt-b.bandcamp.com. i finished up two recordings earlier this year.
RE: A hub for the EZA Game Makers!!
i've created music for a few never-finished games and would love the opportunity to do so again. i've been a musician for two decades and am well versed in acoustic and electric guitar, bass guitar and drums. i'm learning keyboards.
if you would like a theme song or some menu music or a full soundtrack, feel free to message me on here or, the better way, would be to dm me on twitter (https://twitter.com/matt__b).
you can hear stuff i've recorded (mostly video game covers, as well as some songs from the aforementioned never-completed games) at my bandcamp page: http://matt-b.bandcamp.com.
looking forward to being creative with fellow allies.
Final Fantasy V Four Job Fiesta
Good afternoon allies!
I have taken part on the Four Job Fiesta for the last 3 years and always have a blast and come away with a few new stories to tell.
As the official website describes it, "The Final Fantasy Five Four Job Fiesta is a challenge play of FF5 where players get one random job from each of the crystal sets in the game." Simple as a concept as that may seem, it opens up a lot of very interesting gameplay avenues for what may be the best implementation of the job system in a Final Fantasy.
The biggest thing about the #FF5FJF2017 is that it generates donations for the charity Child's Play; last year alone the Fiesta raised $19,323.61. (it's already raised 6858.75 this year)
I have already signed up for my pre-registration and hope to see other allies do the same. This is the only way I've played FF5 and after seeing the different jobs and how easily broken the game can be with certain job combinations, I don't think I'll ever play it without the Fiesta rules.
Here is the official website for the Fiesta: http://fourjobfiesta.com/index.php
Love & Respect,
