    Fair enough. Though I imagine there is way to make it have that evil without any other instruments. The choir just adds a tad too much color imo - the pure organ just has this weird austerity that perfectly balances the rest of the immensely chaotic track.

    In other news, I had a sudden surge of inspiration regarding my novel, but the problem is it’s for a rewrite of the beginning section. And I’m not sure I wanna go back there just yet since I need to stick to a system. But I will try to keep that in mind as I continue writing because I feel like I finally get the main character and he’s finally stopped being frustratingly passive.

    Also you're right, your post was bite-sized enough to just listen to all songs on it ^^ some pretty great ones I didn't know, especially that Wild ARMS theme, wow.

    Holy trout that is amazingly made. Wasn't even familiar with Azumanga Daioh but looked it up right away and they captured it wonderfully. Fanart can really go places sometimes.

    It was good, though imo the only correct way to make it is by having it be a total organ solo. The choir here didn’t hurt, and it was still very well done, but I honestly feel it’d have been more effective with just the organ

    Oh wow. I wanna know what soundfont this person uses. I’m a bit torn on the final movement though, since I can barely hear the melody over the drums, but overall it was really smurfing good.

    On the topic of music, have you seen this btw? ^^

    Yeah 10 is a pretty harsh number which I couldn't really stick to myself *cough* so much great music in games.

    Haven't continued playing yet, in part because it is a bit fatiguing going through the same tasks (and the same final boss fight) repeatedly and tbh I'm not looking forward to doing the prehistoric parts again, but also cause I've both started Celceta now and I'm still regularly working on my Warcraft III map as well. It's supposed to be a Final Fantasy based RPG map, but I guess I'm now kinda tying elements from all different kinds of RPGs into it, but it's pretty fun.

    Well it's had a rocky history dating all the way back to the 80s. Ys I and II are essentially two halves of one game, then there's Ys III: Wanderers of Ys, several games that are all Ys IV (it's a mess), and the elusive Ys V. Then the series died for 8 years until it eventually returned with Ys VI: Ark of Naphistim, as well as Ys Origins (a prequel, essentially Ys 0) and several updated remakes of the earlier games: Ys Chronicles (remake of I + II), Ys: The Oath in Felghana (remake of III) and Ys: Memories of Celceta (remake of IV). Ys Seven also came out around this time. Finally, there's been Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, and later this year (and presumably localized next year) there will be Ys IX: Monstrum Nox. Hopefully Ys V will also have a remake localized at some point (it got one on the PS2), it's the one game in the series that never made it overseas, and I don't know much about it myself.

    So given the number of remakes, there's really only 8 major games to play through, 7 if you discount Ys V for the time being.

    Edit: Should also mention that most Ys games have been ported to Steam by now, making them pretty nicely accessible.

    Well before that I do have some more Ys games - next up Ys: Memories of Celceta - on my list of games to play ^^ but I'll get to it eventually.

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

by Wolf Kanno on 01-30-2020 at 09:17 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

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

My Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten: Suikoden IV Part 2 ~ Suikoden Tactics

by Wolf Kanno on 06-17-2019 at 07:25 AM

So in my last blog, I talked about the black sheep numbered entry of the Suikoden franchise, Suikoden IV. Today, we're going to look at Rhapsodia, better known as Suikoden Tactics in the West. Tactics is a gaiden title that serves as both prequel/sequel side story to Suikoden IV. What makes it really standout is that the game is no longer a turn-based RPG about collecting 108 heroes, but instead a Tactical Turn Based RPG a la Final Fantasy Tactics, Fire

My Top 100"s Lost but Not Forgotten: Suikoden IV ~ Part 1

by Wolf Kanno on 04-29-2019 at 07:53 AM
List, blah blah. Didn't make it, blah blah.

I feel I have a theme going here. Like the BoF1 entry, anyone who took a quick glance of my list will know I'm a pretty big Suikoden fan, you'll also notice I snubbed one of the main entries and most of the spin-off/gaiden games. I'll say right now, that I have to actually play Suikogaiden due to lacking the proper emulator, which is why

My Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten: Breath of Fire

by Wolf Kanno on 04-14-2019 at 11:23 PM
Blah blah blah, made a list, blah blah blah, this is for games that didn't make it.


Anyone who simply glances over my list will notice I have a strong affiliation with Capcom's classic and underrated RPG series Breath of Fire. They will also notice I left one entry out of the list, and while my BoFII entry hints as to some of the reasons, I figured I would lay it out here
