    That was one of the major criticisms I heard about the game as well. That and the game should not have had a silent protagonist.

    Glad it was relaxing at least and you got a chance to unwind. I could seriously use that right now as this time of year is usually really stressful for me. Good luck with your writing as well, and I like the idea of getting a short story written every week. Good motivation.

    How was your holiday?

    Ozma, is interesting from a story standpoint, I'm still trying to raise her levels to make her worthwhile in battle but it already seems to me like she's built to be what the Rune Fencers were suppose to be, a decent Red Mage type build. Raveness has been also kind of underwhelming but I blame it on keeping her in a underwhelming job class, I should just bump her into a White Knight and forget Lans companions.

    I actually ended up getting my English patch to work and started playing the original SNES version of the game, and despite being significantly more difficult, as I feared, I'm enjoying it a bit more mechanically. I can't fathom why Matsuno dropped training mode from any of his games as it feels like the perfect system to really test out the Job Class System and party builds. Mostly I've been screwing around with FFXII:TZA.

    Maria's arc is kind of boring, but Japan seems to love her for some reason if disproportionate amount of fan art she gets is anything to go by. I do happen to like Wings, but it's not my favorite track in the game either, though I do feel it's the highlight of that sequence, even if it was used better in Disc 2. I also happen to love the Thames, but I like the levity it brought to the story. It was getting pretty serious and grim up until then and it was nice to just have something kind of fun, besides it justifies how the party was going to reach Zeboim.

    I happen to really like Disc 2 the way it is myself. I usually feel the game's combat system finally loses its impact about the time you reach Solaris, so reducing the dungeon crawls never bothered me. I feel my only desire to see the Disc expanded would be for the chance to actually use Elly's Omnigear (and perhaps get Maria and Emereldas) give better resolution to the Kislev arc and Rico since it's obvious there was a lot more going on there; and I wouldn't mind seeing more about the Diabolos incident from Laca's story arc, as it would have been interesting to learn more about Bart's ancestors and Grahf's war. Hell, I wouldn't mind seeing just a bit more of grown up Abel to be honest. None of this are deal breakers and I prefer Xenogears cutting branches to really focus on the important core parts of the plot, but I wouldn't be bothered seeing some of it expanded either.

    My holidays were okay, I've been mostly brainstorming ideas for my one novel we were discussing and finally getting back to Soul as well. I've nearly completed the timeline draft in the supplement materials which will help me out.

    Finally got to Chapter 4. Missed out on recruiting the pirate dude, but I got Ozma at least.

    I feel people make a bigger deal out of it than it really is. Most likely, people who haven't touched a 3D Platformer from that era in quite awhile.

    I'm still on Chapter 3, but recruited Hobyrim the Swordmaster. I'm taking the fight to the Bakram right now.

    Overpowered indeed.

    Vierge is a nasty and underrated Gear.

    As I said, it's not like I feel they are bad, but they simply don't stand out to me like his other tracks. I feel the only battle theme he's ever done that is honestly a weak track is his one for Chrono Cross.

    I mean I never got bored with Persona 5's battle theme, of anything, I was simply disappointed that they reused one of the more epic boss themes for a couple of battles.

    I don't know, for me Matsuda does better with his world and character moments than battle themes. Like none of his battle themes are necessarily bad or anything, but like Xenogears battle theme can't stand up to stronger tracks for me like The One who is Torn Apart, A Distant Promise, Flight, and The Treasure Which Cannot be Opened. It's the issue in all of the game's he composes for. Even Chrono Trigger's battle themes barring Battle with Magus, which subverts this since it's the guys character theme, are not as strong or memorable as the other tracks.

    I feel my only issue with Xenogears battle theme is that it's the only one outside of a cutscene track playing in battle or the special final boss themes. With an 80+ hour RPG, it becomes a bit forgettable after awhile.

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
