It's spelled Seaman, btw.

Sonic The Hedgehog
...aaaaand that's all I can remember offhand.
I think I read daily about games and shit, but there are sessions where I dont touch any game in weeks. Then a game hooks me up and can play really long sessions and then I get sick again and so on.
Many years ago, I tried playing Romancing Sa-Ga 3. I thought I was doing pretty well, and made it to the end, only to have the game not-so-kindly remind me where my place was. I couldn't beat a single one of the 5 endgame bosses.
Recently, I got the hankering to play some Sa-Ga, and since part of me still wanted to finish RS3, I booted it back up. I planned ahead, put together what I thought was an optimum party (Katarina, Harid, Sharl, Boston, Fulbright, if you're interested), realized by endgame it was NOT optimum, but still made sure I was power-leveled enough (everyone had >900 HP this time with the other stats to go with. I optimized my equips, farmed my weapon skills, and hoarded high-end healing items.
It turns out I went completely overboard. There was still room to improve (a 3 sword user party spamming Split Body would've made MUCH shorter work of things), but I mowed down all the Noble Devils and the final boss--in the most satisfying way possible.
I think I've now finished every SNES RPG I've ever been really interested in (although I'm always up for suggestions), and now the only SaGa games I haven't finished in some way are RS2 (which I love parts of, but the generational mechanic I don't like much) and SF2 (Although I haven't attempted this one in a long time). And before anyone asks, yes I have finished Unlimited SaGa--with 2 characters.
I love a lot of things about BoF3, but I never play that desert anymore without a walkthrough. I seem to remember taking ~1 week to cross it as a kid back when we didn't have internetz at my house.
On the brightside, there's a few world-killing pieces of equipment in there.
I'm guessing its the bad Chinese impression that the Siamese cat does, that the bone of contention there.
My favourite is Mulan although I would kill for a version with no fucking singing in (this what kills my enjoyment of most Disney animated movies for me), failing that Dumbo, I know the crows are a bit of a stereotype but they just crack me up.
I know only the French version (Tout le monde veut devenir un cat, where cat is the english word, referring to the music band, and not to the animal), the racism isn't obvious at all in the french lyrics.
To the contrary, the movie seems to plead for melting-pot : there are cats of almost all races, each helping each other, even the group count what can represent blacks (scat cat), irish, asian, whatever (O'Maley), and the song is complete when the all-white Duchesse plays the harp.
I really wonder what can be in original lyrics to motivate such a reaction...
The Aristocats is my favourite, mainly because music is actually part of the film, and all the stereotypes about French and Paris So charmant
A shame it's considered as one of the poorest WD.
Among the "recents", I'd say Alladin as well. Even if I find it's kinda of an empty shell.
And it emphasizes the trend of the charismatic bad guy with the near-to-transparent hero a little too much (it'll get worse after).
Anyone else experience the wonders of Sleep Paralysis?
