    Yeah, that’s completely understandable. Don’t beat yourself up over it. Take as long as you need to heal and make art later.

    lol I did didn’t I. V went by really fast and VI feels much shorter than that. The only time I really slowed down was The After Years. But that’s also why I’m putting Chrono Trigger in there as I actually plan to see all the endings this time! Plus, I imagine I’ll be really slowing down once I reach XI just by virtue of the nature of that game. But since there are things I want to wait for, I think it’s a good idea to just take things slower, maybe focus a bit more on writing or play another of the million games I have in my backlog.

    I mean, they do, but I guess that doesn’t matter that much to me since I think I actually prefer them to be comfort experiences rather than challenging me. I prefer the strategy and preparation kind of challenge honestly. Though it’s nice to have to struggle in a twitchy fashion sometimes. The most memorable battle for The Witcher 3 was pretty much ideal, being both really challenging on a tactical level and a reflex level. The director of that expansion actually said they were really inspired by the Soups series, so that makes sense.

    Meanwhile, I think I need to slow down with the marathon a bit, and there’s two main reasons for it. The first is that the latest XIV expansion is coming out in fall, so I don’t think it makes sense starting it before it drops, especially since it’s supposed to be an end to this particular story arc. The second one is that there’s a background upscale mod for FFVIII Remaster coming out soon, similar to the FFVII and IX mods already available, so I really hope they’re almost done and I can play VIII like an actual remaster lol

    Conversely, Bayonetta made me realize I’m trout at actual action games and action RPGs are a nice middle ground for me Unless they don’t allow you to jump, that is

    Ooh, interesting, thanks!

    Ooh, that is interesting! I think one of two things may have happened. Either it’s what you said and Mitsuda composed the tracks with a better sound font and had to later change them a bit to fit the SNES sound font, or the actual soundtrack is as we know it, but someone was tasked with making high quality arrangements for the promo cassette. I was leaning more to the former until I heard the battle theme, which sounds significantly different, with way more focus on the percussion rather than the bass. The other tracks sound pretty much the same just with all the virtual instruments replaced with more convincing samples.

    One thing I also noticed is that everything sounds higher too? Like I’m pretty much there’s an entire half step worth of difference. Though this one is probably actually really boring because it’s most likely that this is a result of the cassette being old and the sound being distorted lol

    I’ll still probably give them a shot since it sounds interesting. What’s intimidating is that the Front Mission story feels so vast and it’s hard to acquire bits of the story, but I hope I can take that plunge eventually

    So how necessary do you think reading all the non-game materials is to really enjoy FM’s story? Like everything you say sounds very cool, but there’s also so much of it I’m a bit worried I’ll end up getting lost lol

    Also, on an unrelated note, I’ve just learned about this game. Inspired by Beksiński’s art and with Akira Yamaoka as composer, feels like this is something I should keep on my radar

    Lol I mean, to everyone else in the world everything east of Germany is basically Russia anyway

    Interesting. I’ll definitely want to jump back in at some point but I’m not sure if I’ll have access to any other titles aside from the DS one

Oof, I've been a bit out of sorts with my mental health lately, and I think it's about time I do something about that. I've got a lot of balls in the air so to speak concerning projects I've been doing around the forum both past and present. So I'm thinking about tackling a few of them, but with how I've been feeling lately, I want some second opinions I guess. Of the projects I've abandoned, what should I work on next?

Here's where I'm at for the moment:

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
