    Yeah, Tyler Hoechlin has no inhuman vibe.

    I think a normal talk is better. I wrote the review shortly after I was done the first time therefore some bits and pieces are missing. But believe me, you will notice certain elements that are way to sloppily implemented and thus not as clear as some people make them out to be.

    Having the Remake now be aware that the English version is not as accurate as it should be. And that certain "important" plot elements are incoherently displayed I think you remember from me saying it.

    So I've been way more hooked on Majora's Mask than I expected. I'm enjoying it much more this time and am honestly having such a hard time putting the game down. But there's one more interesting thing I'm noticing. So MM has a reputation online for being the creepy, depressing, cynical Zelda, but like, that's not exactly the vibe I'm getting. Sure, the subject matter is dark, there is a lot of grief and sadness, frustration and anguish and the atmosphere is oppressive but... am I the only person that feels that the main theme of this game is hope? It's about overcoming the darkness where you can and accepting your fate where you can't, knowing that in the end it will all be alright, one way or another. There's the obvious one with Link doing his best to stop the moon from falling, which seems impossible, especially with the ticking timer, but he goes out and does that anyway, even though he loses a lot of the progress he makes and slowly but surely makes his way there. It's evident in the sidequests, where people are at their darkest hour, but Link can help them either make things better or just move on. Sure, you could say it's cynical because it resets, but then at the end, when you get the golden ending, all the good changes you make stick.

    I think the fact that the main new song in the game is called the Song of Healing embodies it the best. It sounds incredibly haunting, one might feel it's even depressing at first, but there is something very comforting about it, especially given when it's played. You bring solace to those who suffer. You soothe their wounds and reassure them that everything is going to be all right. And in the end the apocalypse is averted and everything is alright. It's about overcoming trauma, even though it often keeps coming back, and the importance of hope in all of that. It's about healing your soul, so to speak.

    Welp I got it to work! I’ve decided I’ll probably finish Type-0 first though

    I have played MM before, so I know what you mean about the dungeons. However, last time I used a guide for all the heart pieces, so this time I’m trying to go completely guide-free and just enjoy the looped day to day life in Termina and just get everything I need in my own. We’ll see how that goes, but I already enjoy it more. I do like the changes made to the remake so far.

    And yeah, lol, cool coincidence. I’m of course very jelly because I really need to play the remake already. In the meantime I really need to figure out why this translation mod is not working :/

    I’ll probably get to your thing in the next couple of days since it’s a long weekend here. So stay tuned!

    In the meantime, I’ve finished Master Quest. Spirit Temple was indeed very cool, though I still personally prefer Forest. Fire Temple was the absolute worst however. I was stuck in it for days and overall it just wasn’t very pleasant, especially since we already had a fire dungeon not that long ago. Started Majora’s Mask soon after and boy, did they make it pretty! I don’t know what they did but it looks much nicer than OoT, despite the original feeling significantly less polished than OoT.

    I also got gifted FFVII in Steam lol. Still waiting for SE to activate my stupid SE account, but I’m thinking of giving it a whirl using a translation mod. We’ll see if a reworked translation can make the latter half of the game better.

    I mean, it’s true. But he has absolutely mellowed out in recent years when it comes to JRPGs.

    Yeah that’s definitely something to be admired about him. But it’s also so frustrating

    Bye, Yahtzee’s review of FFVIIR is up on the Escapist website and it’s amusing as usual. Though not quite as subversive as you’d expected

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
