    I didn't take that as a diss, I was just remarking that while I would love to make my own sprites, I know I wouldn't have the patience to do a good job. I'm better at sketching other work or real life architecture than being creative with my drawings.

    I've played with XP in the past as well and I had the versions ported to PS1 and PS2 so I've spent my time with it as well. I just need to get better at scripting and getting the code to do what I want when I want. I wish the scene creation aspect was closer to the program Alice since it used drop and drag with simple conditioning programs to really animate things. Then again I haven't spent as much time with XVA to know what's changed.

    XV Ace. Art is not my forte but the base system didn't have what I wanted for the project I was working on so one of the tile sets fitted what I needed. The other was just so cheap I figured why the hell not?

    Due to the sale, I opted to pick up FFXI again on Steam with all the expansions. I also picked up some tile sets for RPG Maker and hope I can start back up on some of my older projects.

    Yeah, the sad truth is that the most interesting elements were all the heavy foreshadowing for the next arc. The Box, Luxu's identity, the return of the Foretellers, and all that stuff. I think the most annoying part of the plot was how focused it was on Sora despite the larger cast, because details from KHUX and some of the smaller elements from this entry show that Ventus is likely going to be dragged back into the spotlight later but his contribution to the story is incredibly lackluster. The game really should have expanded the story scope and incorporated more of the cast into it instead of just bringing everyone back ten minutes after the final world and then going to the final battle.

    Game. Set. And Match. KHIII Vanilla is done. Still debating about the ReMind DLC. maybe if it ever goes on sale I will consider it. Especially since the ending is a bit lackluster. Like it kind of ends with Sora going off to do something. Then it kind of shows it happened already, and then he's disappears. I know the ReMind deals with it and I've spoiled myself on the details, but kind of feels a bit weird regardless. I've also decided that the Birth by Sleep secret ending from KHIIFM was the last really cool secret ending the series ever did. KHIII's is more jarring than intriguing and Japan overuses the whole ''fictional character appears in Tokyo'' trope that it was rather boring in comparison. I'm also not exactly in love with the idea of Nomura trying to keep Versus XIII alive through KH. Like Yozora feels like Noctis during his angsty Hot Topic years. I'll gather my thoughts after I've had some time to mule over it and post in the thread. Not that I imagine I have any special hot take on this subject matter that hasn't already been mentioned in the last few years. Is it sad that I found Union X to be a more interesting game overall?

    I still haven't finished it, I got to the final boss and then reset to do a few things. So I'm just now getting ready to do the final battles again. I did get the Ultima Keyblade though. I'm not going to farm more Wellspring Crystals to max out the rest of the keyblades either. I have been watching her video though.

    Oof, I think it's safe to say that KHIII has the most obnoxious requirements to get the Ultima Keyblade short of maybe 3D. Most of the Orihalcum+ is hidden behind some of the side games but the two most obnoxious have to be the post card mini-event and the Frozen Slider missions. The post card event is pure RNG, so your best bet is to just get a postcard, save by the mailbox and then just save scum until you get it. Frozen Slider is a bit like the FFVII snowboard event just with a realistic mountain with multiple pathways to get down. Completing it is fairly easy, but there are ten special treasure hidden on the course and you need to acquire all ten to get the material. That one is the final one I need besides farming Wellspring Crystals on San Fransokyo. The weirdest thing about the synthesis system in this game is that some of the materials needed to complete it are locked behind finishing the game an ddoing the post game. Apparently the game unlocks optional battle challenges like the ones from 3D after you finish the game. Hell I've been told the Ultima Keyblade also can't be unlocked until then but I'm going to try anyway because I have six of the seven Ori+ materials needed.

    I also took down the two hidden bosses in the Gummi Ship section, one of which is required to get one of the seven Orihalcum+ materials but I took down the super hard optional boss for the trophy. Once I get the final material from Frozen slider and attempt the Ultima Keyblade I'll go back to the final areas and try to finish it properly this time. I sort of went back to an old save because I failed to take a picture of a boss for a synthesis recipe. I'm still debating whether the picture mechanic is cool or kind of just meh.

    Probably should have waited for some special edition I guess. I just hope SE eventually discounts it. I'm still annoyed with Atlus' DLC for P5 that costs more than the standard game. Should probably just pick up Royal eventually.

    Yeah but I'm a little annoyed that I have to drop another $30 to get the part of the game I felt should have been in the original. I'm also a little sad that Oathkeeper and Oblivion were DLC only though in hindsight, it's not as important to have them here and they're fanservice to begin with so not as butthurt about that.

Part of your world

by Fynn on 06-06-2017 at 05:37 PM
So there's this nagging issue I've had for quite some time now. It's a pretty abstract issue but one I think is pretty interesting and perhaps even important to share nonetheless. For many reasons, it has only become more pronounced recently.

As some of you may know, I want to be a writer. I try to do as much writing as I can. I even do writing for a living, though as an SEO copywriter, it's not exactly that I have an opportunity to spread my creative wings as part of what keeps giving

On FFVII (part of my Fmarathon rant)

by Fynn on 11-23-2016 at 12:16 PM
Decided this is worthy of being a blog-post, since it turned out to be a much bigger rant than I expected and I'm not sure the marathon's audience is really there for that kind of stuff

Frustrations of the writerly sort

by Fynn on 07-01-2016 at 12:13 PM
So there's this thing I've been struggling for quite some time. I don't want to call it a "writer's block" because it kind of seems like an excuse for being lazy. And it usually doesn't last long. This is something that's been eating at me for a long time.

I just kinda feel that I can't write anymore.

I mean, I still write articles for the site sometimes and I write other texts at my work, but it seems like, creatively, I've dried up. I'll come up with ideas

On story expectations

by Fynn on 03-30-2016 at 12:57 PM
So this is kind of a general discussion, but the general rant I have is based on three popular 3DS RPGs: Bravely Default, Fire Emblem: Awakening, and Shin Megami Tensei IV. Sorry if this is chaotic, as I'm just writing this as it comes into my mind. Also, spoilers from the three games abound.

All of those games were very well received, though for different reasons. SMT is kind of here to serve as a neutral ground, as the evaluation of its story is pretty divided, whereas the consensus

Character Appreciation: Junpei Iori

by Fynn on 03-30-2016 at 11:37 AM
This is in no way an idea I stole from Pumpkin, no siree.

Junpei Iori is a character from the Persona franchise. He first appears in Persona 3 and all of its subsequent releases as a playable party member. He becomes a social link character as well in the female path of Persona 3 Portable, though he isn't date-able. He is also playable in
