    Yeah, Team Maniax just seems to... not really get it, I’m afraid. I’ve already heard complaints to that degree to SMTIVA, but this is some next level bs. I get that they want to make the series more marketable, but it just pains me to see the one thing that truly set it apart from the other games in the genre. It’s what worries me the most aboit SMTV since it’s done by the same tram, but who knows - maybe they’ll get it by that time.

    Or maybe, you know, I should just get over myself and accept that times are changing

    Speaking of, do you know what other series has great ambiguity? I’ll give you a hint: it’s the Witcher Althoigh honestly they kinda messed it up with the big bad from the Wild Hunt since he was an interesting, sorta morally gray presence in the books, but a genetically doomsday villain in the game. It’s good that the rest of the game’s content make up for it, sspecially the expansions - ESPECIALLY Hearts of Stone which is fricking amazing with how it handles it’s moral dilemma and people still cannot agree which of the two endings to that scenario is the good end and which one is the bad one, and there are solids argument for and against both.

    While I disagree, even if that was the case, the core MegaTen sensibility is supposed to be aboit how humanity is flawed. If the neutral ending suggests this flaw might repeat the cycle at best and destroy humanity at worst, then that’s what it is. There is no magical resent button or savior that will come and just fix our nature. And SJ was so good about this.

    Still, I still can’t wrap my head over the logistics of Lucifer fathering a human daughter. Especially since he’s a woman in this continuity.
  3. View Conversation
    She is Lucifer’s daughter (uh). From the future (ughhh). Sent so that she can help you get a better ending because apparently all three default endings lead humanity to ruin in the end (eugheughhhhh). And to do that, you convince Zelenin and Jimenez to not do the thing (... I can’t).

    So yeah, we get an everybody lives ending. Screw consequences! The goal of Megaten now is to have everyone live happily ever after, consequences and horrific implications of ideologies be damned

    And honestly, I dont think he’s accused of creative bankruptcy per de - he’s just musically illiterate (as many directors are), and I do agree with the statement that he works better as a more hands-off director who gives the other members of the team more elbow room, but like, I’m still one of the few who enjoyed the prequel movies

    Yeah, it does put things into perspective and I find it really interesting how video game composers actually have more freedom in this regard. I also definitely recommend his other videos since the guy talks about a lot of interesting musical things in a way that I feel is accessible to anyone.

    Btw, finished the first draft of chapter 1 today. Feeling more empowered than ever and I hope I can finish the draft of chapter 2 over the weekend.

    Awesome!

    Meanwhile, I’m at this dreadful point where writing is painful while not writing is even worse. So when after I got tired of writing I launched Xenoblade, I only played one mission and just didn’t feel it and stared at the ceiling for half an hour. But I gotta push myself. To become pro.

    Well, whatever happens, at least I may have a chance to play Catherine in any form soon.

    So what’s up? I feel like I need to brag about this but I’ve been really pushing myself to write lately and have been writing every day this week. I feel like what I’m writing right now is really bad but hey - at least that word count is going up and not down.

My Top 100's Lost but not Forgotten: Dragon Quest VII

by Wolf Kanno on 10-26-2018 at 06:42 AM

I feel like the year 2001 was an odd year in gaming. One of the first time where you really felt like the end of an era and the beginning of a new one was coming. Sony was gearing up to release the successor to the smash hit PlayStation and if you looked around the gaming scene, it seemed like every company was jumping ship to get on board what the PS2 could do. Square had released their PS1 swan song FFIX even though they would still support the PS1 with

My Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten: Arc the Lad II

You know the drill by now...

*******************************************************************************


One of my all time favorite publishers in the 90s for video games was Working Designs. It was a company that actually tried to get a lot of cool JRPGs released in the West long before the actual JRPG boom in the last years of the decade. I've already spoken about their most high profile title they ever worked on, Lunar: The Silver Star Story,

My Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten: Final Fantasy III

by Wolf Kanno on 03-07-2018 at 09:10 PM
Blah blah blah Top 100 blah blah blah too many good games to list. Blah blah blah, games that weren't good enough for my list but still excellent nonetheless.

*******************************************************************************

Of the Classic series within Final Fantasy, FFIII was the last one for me to play, partly cause I didn't emulate very often and partly because I had hoped SE would come to their senses and re-release this title.

My Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten: I am Setsuna

by Wolf Kanno on 02-23-2018 at 07:38 AM
So I did my Top 100 last year, and this year, I'm focusing on a few entries that didn't make the cut for one reason or another. I'll start off by saying that most of the games mentioned in this blog series are all worth playing, they simply just haven't enraptured me enough to place them on my List. I started with Demon's Souls, and i have about 24 more entries to go. I know I said it would be like four or five, but giving myself some time to think about it made me realize how many great games I

My Top 100's Lost but not Forgotten: Demon's Souls

by Wolf Kanno on 01-22-2018 at 04:23 AM
So as many people know, last year I did my Top 100 Games list, but as usual, there were a lot of games I loved that just didn't make the mark for one reason or another. I didn't really want to make a thread about it though, and figured the Blog would suit it better because there is likely only five or six games I wish to highlight here. I also feel annoyed I never use the Blog feature as much since it feels like a better platform for these types of discussions. In addition to these blogs, I do plan
