    I've heard the Chaos path is kind of the most boring in terms of narrative. Not helped by the one thing it had going for it (recruiting Arcyelle) being lost in the PSP version that now makes it possible to recruit her on any path. I think the one thing that bothers me about Law so far, is that you're stuck with it, whereas in Chaos you can eventually switch to Neutral. I have to clear a amp I forgot to save after, but my next goal is actually to take over the Wallister Resistance. It's pretty fun being the Delita character.

    Yeah, it was a great read, and I could be mistaking it for a different article in terms of being a bit mean spirited towards Saga and Blade. Saga is a pretty good series, it just kind of suffers from the same issues as Gears of being overly ambitious and the final act feels a bit rushed, but hereas I felt Gears found a creative way to package in the important bits of the plot. Eps.III of Saga feels a bit like a rush job, not helped by being kind of a jarring experience since the web series was never made available in the West and the Datalog entry for it is very lackluster.

    Oh yeah, I have that one on my bookmarks. Good read if a bit nasty about Saga and Blade towards the end, but they do bring up points I didn't consider like Episode 3 and 4 being merged into Gears.

    When I said I was going to play as Delita in Tactics Ogre, I am standing true to that. You can become quite the piece of work in the Law path. I'm also happy that these games are reminding me of all these great Queen songs I've forgotten about.

    Minato's interview went well. She got the job, and goes in Monday to fill out final paperwork. Yay.

    I'm going to have to look up episode titles to try and remember which ones you're talking about sadly.

    I only committed maybe half a dozen war crimes with my choice, and if those civilians weren't going to fight with me, I could at least still make some use of them.

    Vyse is my spineless Ramza in my title. Butcher of Goylant has a nice ring to it though.

    Let's just say I finally have a chance to really play as Delita.

    Which path do you think I would take?

    I took the interesting one.

    I always liked stories about magic returning to the world. In Soul I had it return in the form of scientific discovery despite it being fairly obvious people were casting spells. Things have calmed down lately, so I should finally be able to read up on the stuff you sent me.

    In Tactics Ogre news, I have reached Chapter 2.

    There is magic, wizards, necromancers, dragons and other fantasy beasts, but they are treated pretty commonly. My goal is to focus on the more human politics than on magic stones, ancient societies, and such not. The biggest fantasy element deals with the unique abilities of the two main characters. One was a soldier cursed with bad luck by a demon he slayed. Wherever he goes, disaster follows but he always manages to survive. The other is a knight born from common stock but adopted into the nobles after he received a blessing by their faith's goddess which granted him the power to perform miracles of good fortune at the cost of his health.

    To be honest, a lot of my history knowledge in my younger years was through self-learning. My history teachers in High School were kind of bad about it and so I ignored lectures and spent my time reading the actual text books instead. My dad was also a history major, so it's no surprise I ended up with similar interests. My real breakthrough was in college when I actually got what I consider to be the best history teacher I ever had. He taught a world history class bust instead of doing basic "Western Europe" approach like most of them do, he actually skipped around the world and basically said "well the American Civil War started, so let's discuss how this event transformed Argentina into the country we know today; let's see how the Industrial Revolution affected India and caused the fall of the Moghul Empire" so he basically taught it more as a global impact, which is a way I usually look at history. His class on India was pretty neat as well.

    My story is more of a Cold War type tale. Taking place in a small country filled with political and ethnic turmoil but the real story is more about the two major empires influencing the events to gain an upper hand on the conflict with each other. While I'm mostly reading up on the Yugoslav Wars because of Tactics Ogre, it has been giving me some ideas. Though more of that is going into Soul which currently has a more developed world, but I feel the real inspirations will likely be Cuba or something from Cold War era Central America. I may even throw some Korean War elements into it. The bulk of the plot takes place in this small kingdom, but the two protagonists each hail from one of the empires exploiting the war for their own end.

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

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
