  1. Rémy's Video Game Journal #1 (Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War)

    I've been super busy with an important project lately, and though I've still managed to find time to play video games, I've been struggling to really focus on them. I find my mind is always on my work, even when I'm playing. I've been searching for ways to give more attention to my gaming sessions without spending too much extra time on them, and I landed on the idea of doing a video game journal. So every night (or thereabouts) I'm going to just do a run-down of the game(s) I've played that day, ...
  2. Update

    Hello everyone!

    I have a lot to update on today -- some good and some bad.

    The bad news is my biological father died and I am having to come to terms with his death. I was close to him which is why I find it weird that I am not feeling too much. I think I'm pretty numb about what's going on and I usually wake up feeling pretty empty. I noticed that every time life hits me hard that it never stops. Right now, I'm throwing myself into school and projects to help ease the ...

    I'm always split on these articles. So many of these games are great and I have retroactively said a few of them made the list, but occasionally something comes along that I really want to love but the game just won't let me. Tactics Ogre is in a weird place for me because the remake and the original are pretty different in some meaningful ways, so much of this review pertains to the remake due to having only played a little bit of the original.

  4. WK's Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten List: Silent Hill 3

    Is this honestly the first non-RPG on this list?

    Well I fell into the Silent Hill series rather late. By the time I had played the series, the "glory years" were over and fans were knee deep in Konami trying to take the series in a different direction without Team Silent. I was a huge fan of the first two entries of the series, being instantly sucked into the second entry and surprised how much I really enjoyed the first one. So it came as a bit ...
  5. WK's Top 100 Lost But Not Forgotten: SaGa Frontier 2

    I was having a serious reservation about whether I was going to add this to my Top 100 list or place it here. I decided it would go here for now, but part of me feels it could be like Demon's Souls and make the jump to My Top 100.

    SaGa is a weird franchise. A JRPG series made for enthusiast who feel they've seen it all. From the Gameboy entries where you built a ragtag group filled with robots and monster to climb a tower/tree to visit ...

    I mentioned this in my Chain of Memories entry for my Top 100 List, but Kingdom Hearts and I have a really awkward history with each other. This is a franchise that has always been more of a guilty pleasure for me than something I actively love. Funny enough, it’s not even the basic premise that bothers me. While Final Fantasy meets Disney mash-up sounds contrived, KH has always managed to make it work since this ...

  7. My Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten: Xenosaga Episode III: Also Sprach Zarathustra

    by , 12-30-2019 at 10:56 PM (Wolf Kanno's Crazy Ramblings and Incoherent Statements)
    Top 100 List Blah blah blah…. I ended up re-writing this entry because the original was a little more bitter and more like just a genuine rant than a review. With that said, a little backstory is in order.

    Continuing my trend of snubbed entries in franchises, we now come back to a series that was very near and dear to me. At this point in time, the story of ...

  8. Final Fantasy IV

    Today's session was the roughest by far during my journey through all the Final Fantasy titles. This next bit might contain some spoilers.

    Okay, my troubles began when fighting Golbez in Underworld. At first, I had no idea why some attacks were healing him while others were damage him. Once I figured that out, I had a hard time keeping enough MP on Rydia to keep summoning Eidolons to do real damage against him. While his attacks weren't super crazy, they were enough to keep my party

  9. My Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten: Suikoden IV Part 2 ~ Suikoden Tactics

    So in my last blog, I talked about the black sheep numbered entry of the Suikoden franchise, Suikoden IV. Today, we're going to look at Rhapsodia, better known as Suikoden Tactics in the West. Tactics is a gaiden title that serves as both prequel/sequel side story to Suikoden IV. What makes it really standout is that the game is no longer a turn-based RPG about collecting 108 heroes, but instead a Tactical Turn Based RPG a la Final Fantasy Tactics, Fire ...

    I feel I have a theme going here. Like the BoF1 entry, anyone who took a quick glance of my list will know I'm a pretty big Suikoden fan, you'll also notice I snubbed one of the main entries and most of the spin-off/gaiden games. I'll say right now, that I have to actually play Suikogaiden due to lacking the proper emulator, which is why ...
