Anyway, I was poking around an online video game "TV channel" and came upon this Final Fantasy Retrospective. It's a fascinating look at the development of each installment of the series, including spin-offs and side projects, and its impact on the series as a whole, as well as reception by critics and fans and what it brought new to the table or took away with each installment.
Part 9 is of interest to you especially, mullenkamp, as it explores Vagrant Story, its possible place within a segment of FF canon, and it how its world (Ivalice) expands over four games (Final Fantasy Tactics, Vagrant Story, Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, and Final Fantasy XII) and how recurring themes in Vagrant Story are starting to appear in new Final Fantasy games.
There's a Silent Hill one, too, but I haven't watched it yet so I don't know how good it is.
Speaking of video games, I am probably going to do a quick double-review of the Resident Evil vs. Silent Hill movie adaptations for Video Sewer, where I have become the newest poor sap slogging through the best and worst American and foreign horror films have to offer. (I was going to start with something a bit more obscure and to the taste of the site, but I got thinking about those two movies and figured I could devote a half of a review each to them.)
