    My proudest achievement in the first chapter was figuring out a clever way to get a background info dump out to the reader by having the characters have a chat over breakfast while the radio in the background played out the info dump. I also abused the fact one of my characters is technically psychic to tell another character's backstory without a monologue. She simply starts "falling through his memories" and it's told in a disjointed way.

    It's why my story is actually slowing down cause while it's a new draft, I'm revising parts I've already written. The worst part is realizing that I'm wasting my time and expanding when I really should be editing cause I feel the biggest problem with the new draft is the pacing is very sluggish. I took a part of the plot that was once about fifty pages and tripled it.

    The first draft is sometimes the most rough. Though I sometimes feel revising is much worse.

    Two great titles don't really make up for the load of crap they released at the time including a licensed Wacky Races game. I feel the PS1/Saturn era was actually pretty good with Persona being created as well as Devil Summoner.

    Konami was largely an arcade and licensed game powerhouse in the 90s until Metal Gear Solid and Silent Hill on the PS1 hit and made them more prominent with IPs. Not to mention Suikoden I and II. I feel the PS2 is when they really released a string of great hits. Capcom just alsways goes back and forth. Like Konami, they had a strong presence in the 80s and early 90s with several high profile Licensed games on console as well as major arcade smashed like Street Fighter and console superstar Mega Man. Then they ran those franchises into the ground until Resident Evil on the PS1 made them household names again and they released the more memorable MMX titles. Then they burned those franchise until Devil May Cry and Okami on the PS2 until they... well you get the point.

    True, though I feel the SNES era is still Atlus' true dork age.

    The PS2 was also Konami's last hurrah before they imploded. Capcom seems to cycle between Golden and Dark Ages during console cycles.

    Very true. I remembered that I still have a few SE ips I never played in the PS2 era like The Bouncer. I should give them a spin.

    I'm just on a PS1 kick. It's been interesting seeing where gaming was heading back then.

    To be fair, it's been years since I've done a complete run through of Xenogears. My last few attempts have been casual on the side play and this is not a game that can be played casually.

    Yeah, it has a more imposing theme, though still whimsical.

    I'm not sure what I'll game on next. Part of me is thinking of hitting up Dark Souls 3 finally while the other part of me feels I should continue the "Chrono" love and jump into Xenogears. Hell ever since I did my Top 100 list, I've been wanting to play through all of my top tens.

    Well it's Tactics Ogre and CT next for now. My only long term gaming plans is Dark Souls 3. I'll need to get back into a MegaTen mood to get back into Soul Hackers.

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
