31 Days: Day 24 - Strains of Insanity


Hello everyone and welcome to the 24th day of 31 Days. We’re almost at the end of October. It almost seems like yesterday I was just starting the series again and now it’s almost over. I hope your October has been an eventful one so far. Today’s Song is:


Strains of Insanity – Chrono Trigger


I really like this song, It has actually become one of my yearly favorites. You can really feel the tension and despair in the air. In the background every so often you can hear cries of a man. Laughing or crying, it’s hard to tell but one thing is for sure, this place is creepy and so is the music. For such a fiendish castle this song fits it to the letter. If you have never played Chrono Trigger by the way, stop reading and play it, the game is good.

Now this song for me, like certain other tracks, has become one that I’ve grown accustomed to over the years and have grown into liking it more over time. Like lavender town or Abyss I’m able to listen to these songs at my leisure morning noon or night and it won’t bother me. If anything it inspires me to think a bit about the game itself among other things. I often find myself thinking of what could be beyond the limitations set forth by the game creators. What lies beyond the wall or the hills, what’s underneath that truck in Vermillion city. Things like that. Logically I know nothing does, but it’s amusing to think about could be. Magus castle while fairly well explored is no exception (for me at least). I’ll leave it at that for now, this isn't 31 days of game theory.

About Agent9one of us since 12:45 PM on 04.13.2010

Who is Agent9? The not so secret agent of the destructoid community.

A Few things about me

- I'm almost finished with my degree in computer science and I plan on going into independent development and freelancing once I'm done.

- I can be very cynical, but I do try to be positive or curb my negativity. In spite of this I'm actually very jovial in person and I don't get mad often. I would dare say I'm quite happy, even when things seem bleak. I simply don't like industry Bullshit and I'm not one to stand for it, even if it's a game I like.

- I host a series annually called 31 Days where I post 1 horror related or themed video game song a day for the month of october. During this time I also provide keys for games (free of course) to any reader observant enough to find them.

- I've been a member of destructoid since 2010, and a lurker long before then. As such I've seen many people both come and go. Such is the natural order of things.

- I enjoy Art and draw in my spare time

- I also enjoy theatre and films. I especially like Horror movies (both good and bad ones).

- I go camping once or twice a year. I would go out more but my allergies tend to get in the way.

- I don't drink, which may be a surprise to some. I might make a joke or two about it but I stay away from alcohol for my own personal reasons, though you can feel free to drink a pint on my behalf any time you'd like.

This is a commission I had done for me by Inquisitive Ravenclaw. You should check out his site if you like the following piece

I also got a musical piece made for me by the incredible Alphadeus. A little history behind this:

My musical piece came as part of the Songs for Gamers album DLC pack 02. Alphadeus has been making songs for the members of the destructoid community for years already. This past year he opened submissions and I applied. For my meagre efforts I received this lovely piece:

You can find him on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFs2UhJYPVITYWCiqMk-z3w

He also has other venues listed on his profile here, take a look if you are so inclined:

The community is full of people with all kinds of talent and I'm very pleased to be a part of it along with all of you (yes, you too fair reader).
