  1. Digital Immortality

    If you could transfer your mind digitally into a different host like a bio-engineered body or a synthetic android, would you do it? If you watched Netflix's "Altered Carbon", the concept's very similar if not the same.

    Let's assume the procedure is as common as buying a vehicle with price ranging from budget prices (synthetic) to lab grown clones. Pricing would be $15,000-$100,000+, for the new hosts and the cost of transferring digitally.

    One of my all time favorite publishers in the 90s for video games was Working Designs. It was a company that actually tried to get a lot of cool JRPGs released in the West long before the actual JRPG boom in the last years of the decade. I've already spoken about their most high profile title they ever worked on, Lunar: The Silver Star Story, ...

  3. My Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten: Final Fantasy III

    by , 03-07-2018 at 09:10 PM (Wolf Kanno's Crazy Ramblings and Incoherent Statements)
    Blah blah blah Top 100 blah blah blah too many good games to list. Blah blah blah, games that weren't good enough for my list but still excellent nonetheless.

    Of the Classic series within Final Fantasy, FFIII was the last one for me to play, partly cause I didn't emulate very often and partly because I had hoped SE would come to their senses and re-release this title. ...

  4. My Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten: I am Setsuna

    by , 02-23-2018 at 07:38 AM (Wolf Kanno's Crazy Ramblings and Incoherent Statements)
    So I did my Top 100 last year, and this year, I'm focusing on a few entries that didn't make the cut for one reason or another. I'll start off by saying that most of the games mentioned in this blog series are all worth playing.

  5. My Top 100's Lost but not Forgotten: Demon's Souls

    by , 01-22-2018 at 04:23 AM (Wolf Kanno's Crazy Ramblings and Incoherent Statements)
    So as many people know, last year I did my Top 100 Games list, but as usual, there were a lot of games I loved that just didn't make the mark for one reason or another.
    So to start this off, let's talk about the Granddaddy of the SoulsBorne franchise: Demon's Souls.

  6. So I'm writing a Final Fantasy IX fancomic...

    Ok, I'm really anxious about announcing/plugging this here, but here goes... I'm currently writing a webcomic set in the world of FFIX. It's not a sequel and not (quite) a prequel, but rather a side story (hence the 'Gaiden' in the title) that doesn't even follow any of the protagonists or antagonists. This is about a barely consequential NPC known as Alleyway Jack/Four-Armed Man/"Gilgamesh" and his little brother, Enkido.
    I've been updating every Monday since I started, and I'm ...

  8. Interesting Routes: Aqua

    by , 11-30-2017 at 10:21 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    There's something truly magical about Himawari that I didn't really realize back when I first read it but have come to appreciate about it more and more.


    Himawari has an enforced reading order, something you don't see a lot in galge without a strong plot focus. However, like other visual novels such as Fate/Stay Night can use it to drive the plot and themes forward in parallel tales, so too does Himawari use it to give us ample ...

    Umineko Chiru - Steam Store Page

    This is the second half of Umineko of course, so if you haven't read the first half yet, you can get it here.

    A few days ago, I went to a midnight showing of Princess Mononoke at the Esquire Theater downtown. The very same theater I went to watch it the first time back in 1999 during it's initial release in the States. At that time, I was an avid anime fan who would consume whatever I could find as the medium was only in the beginning phases of it's explosive popularity in the 2000s, so the prospect of being able to watch an anime flick in an actual movie ...
