    Your spoiler tag on the Persona 4 villain is broken.

    I'm weird in that I preferred Tetra Master. But yeah, TT was pretty fun.

    It's more robust than triple Triad though. But also less robust than, say, Magic the Gathering. It is fairly involving to the point that they're making a separate game out of it that's in open beta now

    Yeah, she does look like she's there so the otakus don't feel too alienated. The worst part about liking an anime-influenced game series is that it attracts all the creepy fans. I'm just happy the Persona team is still being tasteful about it. The new Radiant Historian art for the 3DS remake, however, is exactly this type of pandering in spades. This is the type of trout that makes me constantly want to repost that Miyazaki quote.

    Glad it's still doing it for you! Can't wait to play it myself. Meanwhile, the Witcher 3's second map is way more huge than expected. I'm also getting triple Triad flashbacks. There's a collectible card game that everyone in the world is playing and they will play it with you even in the most dire of situations - just like in FFVIII! It's ridiculous and I love it.

    To be fair, only the third one is really open world. And it's still kind of like Xenoblade, in that it's divided into a number of large, open-world sections. Granted, they're much larger than in Xenoblade, but the simile fits. I've also noticed there aren't really any "bring 20 bear asses" quests. Like I stated before, it's like every sidequest actually has meaning and is pretty unique.

    Still, I'm more sharing my observations than really trying to convince you to play it or anything I still stand by my statement that it's really optimal to read the books first and then play the games in order, because the games are a follow-up. And reading seven books takes time

    Reading what bothers you about open worlds, I feel you might actually enjoyed the Witcher 3's take on it. I especially recommend playing it like I am right now, which is by turning off the minimap. The environments are hand-crafted and there's really enough unique landmarks to really go on. The exclamation points on quest givers appear only if you get close enough to see their names, and the question marks on the main map won't distract you if you don't have your minimap on. Out of all the game's I've played, I think it reminds me the most of Dragon Quest VIII's world. Dungeon design is pretty weak so far, sadly.

    You could just let it go and not organize them

    Well that sounds great! Can't wait to experience them for myself! And yay for drag queen bars XD It's funny how you mention the Sun Arcana as while I'll agree that it was great in P3, I kinda hated it in P4? Both of them, really. No matter which one you chose, they just both felt super annoying to me. And you know, the moment I saw the Death confidant in the trailers, I thought "I have a feeling Wolf Kanno might like this person" and I was right, even though that was just a dumb hunch

    And yeah, the Witcher 3 has plenty of design choices that are just so brilliant. Of course, it has its share of flaws, but the level of detail and polish this game has is astounding. Not to mention the locales look even more Polish than in the first game (and especially the second, which looked way more generic, sadly) and I just can't get enough of this countryside and weather.

Fighting Evil by Moonlight...

by Wolf Kanno on 06-14-2016 at 08:21 AM
So tonight I finally broke out a Christmas present I received several years ago that I never watched. Partly because for the first time in a long time, I felt ready for it. I acquired a DVD set that featured the entire DiC dub of the first two seasons of Sailor Moon, so basically the original dub, not the new one. Original Western score, Sailor Says, and the whole "Serena and Darien" name changes.

It was glorious.

Defining Gaming as Art

by Wolf Kanno on 02-23-2016 at 06:49 AM
This was going to have a subtitle, but they all sounded like pretentious academic papers and that kind of goes against the point of all of this.

So recently I began reading a very in-depth article series about two series worked on by one of the more influential game designers/writers in my life, Tetsuya Takahashi. I'll leave it up to Google for you to figure out why. Anyway, it was mostly a really well written and interesting analysis of the works and I actually learn a few things

Neon Lights, Large soda, and a handful of quarters...

by Wolf Kanno on 08-01-2015 at 09:07 AM
So lately I've been reminded of one of my life goals was that I wanted to one day build my own arcade for myself. Get all the games I grew up on and just have a fun little place devoted to letting me play through the classics and relieve the arcade scene I grew up in. I've been discussing this with friends as we try to create a list of the games we would add to the arcade. Of course there would be the classics like Galaga, Gauntlet, Pac-Man, Paperboy, Frogger, and Dig Dug but I also thought about

Trying to remember a feeling.

by Wolf Kanno on 11-04-2014 at 09:02 AM
Normally I really hate writing personal posts like this but my strong dislike of EoEO and the fact this topic doesn't feel quite "EoEO material" as well as posting it in the Writing Forum felt weird because it's a bit too personal and I feel that forum should stick to its primary focus.

So recently I came upon some writer's block with a novel I am working on and so I decided to shift gears and work on a different story instead until I recharge and have a chance to step back

That Game Company Collection

by Wolf Kanno on 03-29-2014 at 09:06 PM
Haven't done a blog in ages and I wanted to talk about this without starting a thread.

So I picked up the That Game Company Collection set a while back and finally last December I played through it. I'm not going to bother discussing the cell phones style games cause... yeah... I'll simply focus on the Big 3 that everyone bought the set for.

flOw - Is and interesting game with some cool dynamics to it. It's pretty short but I'm a busy person and so this is actually a
