    I have a passing knowledge of Hettalia, so I might look into it one day. But that does sum up how we’re all viewed by the world, doesn’t it

    That sounds very similar to the word we use for small dumplings in Polish (pierożki), which is actually a diminutive form of pierogi (which, incidentally, is actually a plural form; one “pierogi” in Polish is actually called “pieróg”).

    But even though we have those similarities, Polish and Russian are actually very different languages that are mutually completely unintelligible (though with some hand gestures and similar words, you can communicate more easily that with speakers of completely unrelated languages). People are usually surprised when I tell them that, as we’re all pretty much conflated info one big Slavic mass from a more Western perspective. Which is to be expected, I guess.

    An interesting thing to note is the word for thank you, as it’s one of those things that separate West Slavic languages (Polish, Czech, Slovak) from East Slavic ones (Russian, Ukrainian, Belarus). The Eastern word is some variant of spasiba, while we Western Slavs use the Germanic riot found in German and English - our “dziękuje” sounds very similar to “danke” and, by extension, “thank you”.

    That all said, I don’t think I’ve ever tried actual Russian piroshki! Then again, over here we don’t exactly do Russian cuisine. It’s very rare to the point that I never encountered the restaurant like that. We get all the standard exported cuisines, plus Czech and Lithuanian stuff at the appropriate borders, but things from a bit farther to the East are not common in the slightest.

    Just took a turn and entered the Necrohpl of Nabudis and in a cutscene I learned that apparently the Tchita part of Tchita Uplands is pronounced tseeta? It doesn’t make any sense with that spelling. So weird.

    Yeah. Pretty similar here, except replace snow and sickness with extreme cold (without snow!) and medical examinations, and like, at least two panic attacks because you think there’s something wrong with the baby. That’s life for ya, I guess

    I just beat the bomb king and am super happy with myself because I figured out I need to silence it to not have it use renew and didn’t need to resort to quickenings at all!

    So in the end I managed to write a little bit, which is good, but ultimately the bulk of my vacation time went to FFXII. I’m up to the Salikawood now with lots of hunts done and still more on my plate. Though I’m still handling them pretty well and though doing them as early as possible is difficult sometimes, the rewards are definitely worth it (hi, Burning Bow!). I also got two optional espers, Adrammelech and Zalera, though I sadly ended up spamming quickenings on the latter since I really didn’t want to revisit the Barheim passage again after that. Adrammelech was a very cool fight though. Had my mages spam blizzard on the boss while Basch took out the zombies. It was wild.

    I think I just need to kill it before it goes berserk.

    So I decided to try those rank V marks after all and what do you know - I’m winning! Got the White Mousse, Orthros and Marilith, but now Trickster is kicking my ass with choco meteor at critical health :/

    Yeah, I don’t want to wait all the way til the end, I’m just not ready for the Rank V ones yet. That’s good to know either way

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 drill…


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, it’s 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 blah…. 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
