    Very true, I'm currently binge watching Daria.

    I know that feeling. I've been feeling pretty guilty as well, I was having a conversation with artist friend today where we shared the fact that both of us were told when we were younger how much potential we had and how neither of us are living up to it.

    Still, I've been having a rough few weeks and I'm starting to see that I need to calm down because I've been stressed out so much that I really need to relax a bit so I can refocus my energy.

    Yeah, he was planed to appear at the Mirage Arena, but they scrapped the idea because he was already appearing in Dissidia Duodecim that year. Not sure why it mattered. but that's the story I've heard.

    Yeah, I feel the cameos were cool, but after the first game they just never felt as relevant as they could be. It probably never helped that they always felt more like fanservice than important.

    Man, I still should replay Xenoblade, it's been years, course I have several other Wii titles I really need to be getting back to...

    Ouch, that does sound like a bit of a sting, but considering how obnoxious Xenoblade does it's NG+, I feel it's more fun to play a fresh game.

    BbS has been interesting, definitely feeling the fact it's made for handheld and not console. I often felt KH2 was trying too hard to get out of worlds ASAP, but BbS is in another league. I'm on Proud mode, but it feels like how some people describe Critical Mode in other entries. Either I kill everything before they know what hit them, or I get killed before I know what hits me. I still like the command board better than KH2's system, maybe because it's more of an RPG trapping whereas KH2 was trying too hard to be Devil May Cry but had to deal with all those annoying numbers. Style Changes are beastly though, kind of forgot how OP they were. I also feel it was silly not to include Laguna in the Mirage Arena. He would have brought a lot of personality to that place and maybe help make it feel like a real world and not just one of the game's two mini-game hub worlds.

    Terra is warming up to me, I do feel Sleeping Beauty's world paints him as a bit of an idiot and selfish jerk though. I mean he believes he stole Aurora's heart but then decides to leave anyway instead of tracking down Maleficent to set things right. Comes across really awkward to me. I'd be farther along, but as a veteran of this title, I spend way too much time playing the board game. Also I've been getting a lot of love out of the D-Links, helped by the fact that Aqua's D-Link will give you your first access to the Cure spell instead of hoping to win it on the Keyblade board game. I've already maxed out my first three D-Links, just need to do Cinderella.

    Figured you would appreciate this:

    In BbS news, I finished Castle of Dreams, checked out the Mirage Arena where I was promptly curbed stomped, and then kicked Cinderella's ass at Command Board before I accidentally tugged my charging PS3 controller too hard and pulled my PS3 off it's holding area where it accidentally opened the slide and stopped the disc from playing. I don't even remember when I last saved...

    In other news, I've been listening to the Symphonic Suite and Celtic Arrangement albums for the Suikoden series and I really do forget how much I enjoy their OSTs. They've been pretty gorgeous albums so far.

    So I broke down and checked out a Fragmentary Passage just to see how it played. While I didn't finish it, it's definitely a demo at best in the same vein as the Carbuncle Demo for FFXV, which mean it's plot is actually relevant but what you see is mostly here to test out features for the full game.

    Anyway, I decided to drop it and finally started Birth by Sleep. I just finished Enchanted Dominion with Terra. I'm still playing on Proud Mode. Kind of forgot how dull Terra was as a character, he's way too serious for his own good. I also miss being able to dodge properly...

    That's great to hear. I'm glad the side stories are helping out with the creative juices. Yeah, I always struggle to start writing but once I get going I quickly remember why I love it.
  8. View Conversation
    Not too bad. Better actually. I'm still in creative limbo where I want to work on something but nothing can hold my attention for long, but I figure I'll just force myself to work on something like my main novel and see if inspiration hits.

    Other than that, I've been slowly finding myself in a Suikoden mood thanks to my new article I'm writing up. Instead of gaming, I've been binge watching a few shows in my collection. Just finished the first season of Courage the Cowardly Dog and now I'm watching the second season of The Critic.

    Haven't really gamed much outside of a few mobile titles and Front Mission 3. I did finally pick up Kingdom Hearts III tnaks to a really good deal I found it for (basically got it for half off, which is even cheaper than used copies are going for at the moment) and so I booted up my PS4 to get the initial download done. I am at a point where I may need to remove FFXV from my PS4 because it's had so many updates that it;s hogging all of my PS4's memory at the moment. I had to remove my data for Nier: Automata just to fit KHIII on there. Still, I have a sneaking feeling I may be jumping back into Suikoden before I get back to KH.

    How is your anthology going?

    It's pretty much over at this point, I'm just kind of being paranoid because the last time I had realized everything was really going my way, all this nonsense started funny enough. I think the real issue is that I've been on edge for so long despite most of the real issues being resolved weeks ago, that I'm psyching myself out. So it's all basically in my head at the moment.

    For now, I'm passing my time writing up some blog entries for my Lost But Not Forgotten series. Started with Xenosaga Eps. 3 but it quickly devolved into my thoughts on the franchise as a whole. May need to rewrite that one. I'm currently working on another I may try to post later this weekend if time permits.

    I have new ideas, just no real motivation to work on it. As I said, I was super excited for Elly and was having no problem brainstorming ideas for her story, but now that enthusiasm is just gone. I might also just be stressed out. I've had a fairly rough month so far, and for some reason, it seems life likes to dump on me in March and April.

Part of your world

by Fynn on 06-06-2017 at 04:37 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 11:16 AM
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

So far, I can say that

Frustrations of the writerly sort

by Fynn on 07-01-2016 at 11:13 AM
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 11:57 AM
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 10:37 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
