    So, the Remake 100% canonized FFX. Not that there was any doubt ever.

    In BD I feel like the game is more balanced in that each job can basically stand alone. However, advanced strategies do involve a lot of builds on a party level. BD is actually one of the few RPGs I’ve played that maxing your level is pretty much mandatory to handle the late game and even that is just a start - if anything isn’t up to snuff, you’re dead lol

    I wouldn’t necessarily say it was lackluster. It had a lot going for it, especially with the new jobs that were definitely original. The problem is with the plotting and how the final act is clearly more or less what they wanted the game to be about as they finished the For the Sequel edition of the original release, only for the rest of the entire game to be a much more disjointed set of ideas that didn’t go that well together, plus the party dynamics weren’t nearly as fun, but that’s what you get for removing two fiery party members and replace them with friendly goops. I think the story perhaps needed more time in the oven, just a couple more rewrites and it could’ve been on par with the first game, or at least closer to it, so idk if this is just the case of a less talented writer or just a more rushed development. But hey a ton of people actually do prefer Second, so I wouldn’t say it’s exactly a disaster

    I don’t know if you’re familiar with Steins;Gate, but they hired the writer that did that, and it shows. There’s a lot of weird temporal stuff going on, but on top of that there’s just some excellent character writing and world building. I know a lot of people complain about BD’s story, but I honestly think it’s incredibly clever. It’s a crying shame they didn’t get him for Second. They got the guy who worked on the novelization but it’s abundantly clear this dude doesn’t have nearly the talent the first guy had, even if the game still has its charm. I’m pretty sure the first dude is also not coming back for II, so that’s a bit sad but I guess I still want to play it. At least they got Revo to do the music agsin

    Plus I am curious what you’ll think of a more modern take on FFIII/V. It’s apparently got a good few nods to 4 Heroes of Light too

    Yeah, I have zero clue what I had in mind Buf Bravely Default is definitely a good place to start, what with sequel number 2 on the horizon

    Hmm. Idk, that’s an obvious one, don’t you think?

    I know I had some recommendation in mind when I posted that but it’s somehow completely slipped my mind right now

WK's Top 100 Lost but Not Forgotten : Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together

by Wolf Kanno on 05-24-2020 at 11:43 PM

I'm always split on these articles. So many of these games are great and I have retroactively said a few of them made the list, but occasionally something comes along that I really want to love but the game just won't let me. Tactics Ogre is in a weird place for me because the remake and the original are pretty different in some meaningful ways, so much of this review pertains to the remake due to having only played a little bit of the original.

WK's Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten List: Silent Hill 3

by Wolf Kanno on 05-03-2020 at 01:37 AM
Is this honestly the first non-RPG on this list?

Well I fell into the Silent Hill series rather late. By the time I had played the series, the "glory years" were over and fans were knee deep in Konami trying to take the series in a different direction without Team Silent. I was a huge fan of the first two entries of the series, being instantly sucked into the second entry and surprised how much I really enjoyed the first one. So it came as a bit

WK's Top 100 Lost But Not Forgotten: SaGa Frontier 2

by Wolf Kanno on 04-05-2020 at 02:32 AM
I was having a serious reservation about whether I was going to add this to my Top 100 list or place it here. I decided it would go here for now, but part of me feels it could be like Demon's Souls and make the jump to My Top 100.


SaGa is a weird franchise. A JRPG series made for enthusiast who feel they've seen it all. From the Gameboy entries where you built a ragtag group filled with robots and monster to climb a tower/tree to visit

My Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten: Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep

by Wolf Kanno on 01-30-2020 at 08:17 PM
You know the drillÖ


I mentioned this in my Chain of Memories entry for my Top 100 List, but Kingdom Hearts and I have a really awkward history with each other. This is a franchise that has always been more of a guilty pleasure for me than something I actively love. Funny enough, itís not even the basic premise that bothers me. While Final Fantasy meets Disney mash-up sounds contrived, KH has always managed to make it work since this

My Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten: Xenosaga Episode III: Also Sprach Zarathustra

by Wolf Kanno on 12-30-2019 at 09:56 PM
Top 100 List Blah blah blahÖ. I ended up re-writing this entry because the original was a little more bitter and more like just a genuine rant than a review. With that said, a little backstory is in order.
*************************************************************************


Continuing my trend of snubbed entries in franchises, we now come back to a series that was very near and dear to me. At this point in time, the story of
