  1. Rémy's Video Game Journal #2 (Final Fantasy XIV, Kingdom Hearts)

    Hello, everyone! I played a bit of Final Fantasy XIV today. There’s a holiday event going on right now, so that’s what I did. When most MMOs do holiday events, I find them to be underwhelming, and generally a waste of time. But Final Fantasy XIV has some fun ones. The event quests are always small in scope, but they usually tell fun and heartwarming stories. This event, Valentione’s and Little Ladies' Day, is no exception. I helped Elyne, a young girl who wants to be an adventurer, deliver sweets ...
  2. 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, ...
  3. Projects!!!

    by , 01-28-2021 at 08:40 AM (Wolf Kanno's Crazy Ramblings and Incoherent Statements)
    Oof, I've been a bit out of sorts with my mental health lately, and I think it's about time I do something about that. I've got a lot of balls in the air so to speak concerning projects I've been doing around the forum both past and present. So I'm thinking about tackling a few of them, but with how I've been feeling lately, I want some second opinions I guess. Of the projects I've abandoned, what should I work on next?

    Here's where I'm at for the moment:

  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. Defining Gaming as Art

    by , 02-23-2016 at 07:49 AM (Wolf Kanno's Crazy Ramblings and Incoherent Statements)
    This was going to have a subtitle, but they all sounded like pretentious academic papers and that kind of goes against the point of all of this.

    So recently I began reading a very in-depth article series about two series worked on by one of the more influential game designers/writers in my life, Tetsuya Takahashi. I'll leave it up to Google for you to figure out why. Anyway, it was mostly a really well written and interesting analysis of the works and I actually learn a few things ...
  6. It's the final update!

    No more updates. Just reviews.

    Catch you guys later.
  7. New Series Articles Cancelled

    Bad news, everyone, I won't be continuing any of the new weekly articles I started. I know it's only been a couple of weeks, but ever since I started the days have gotten progressively shorter and they've been wearing me out.

    I'll keep doing my reviews as always, but if I keep the rest up I'm going to hit burnout. I'm only one person. I'm doing all the writing, all the proofing, and all the editing. Maybe if there's something else I want to write about I'll do so and share it on the ...
