    Ugh yeah that’s definitely obsessing too much over that. Then again, I feel that if any series would spawn that kind of fan, it’s MGS

    Well, you know me and you know that the reason why I don’t watch a lot of gaming YouTube anymore is that I prefer the video essay format and people really digging into the themes of a work. That said, hell yeah fandoms go off the deep end sometimes. And with a mind as crazy as Kojima’s being responsible for the work in question, is it really any surprise that people like that would surface to discuss it?

    On another note, I’m actually thinking of doing a full FF marathon soon. It’ll still take me a while to get there, since I’d like to finish some other projects first. But this time I want it to be full rather than rushed. This means I’d take things slower but I think taking on all the extra dungeons and bosses could be neat since there are some I’ve never attempted before. I also wanted to include the MMOs, the direct sequels and a second playthrough of Type-0 into the mix - just so I can say I’ve actually beaten them all :P Another thing I think could be fun is not actually making this my marathon, it could be more like a book club that people could join. Like I’d be playing the games in the order listed at the start but so can anyone else and they’re encouraged to share.

    Yeah, I wouldn’t want it to be this weekend anyway since I need to know these things ahead of time. Saturdays are the only thing that works for me, but I’m also very limited in terms of time because of my small child, so it might be hard to find a window that works for us both.

    Ok, so we’ve got something to go on. Now the question is: when do we do it? Once we decide that yes this is happening, I’m gonna have to ask Psy if he’ll be willing to do his editing magic he always did for the other talks. If not, we’re just gonna have to do it on our own and just ask him to upload it to the channel.

    I think we could start off with a basic idea, e.g. compared to the likes of Dragon Quest, FF has, from the very beginning, attempted to do something interesting with their main villains, so we could go from there and see how they’ve attempted to keep things fresh over the years.

    Yeah, I feel a free talk about villains would be ideal too. I think the only ones we might be more behind on - at least me personally - are the MMOs.

    There’s a couple ways to approach it, I think. We could cover them all in order then compare and contrast, we could talk about who we consider the best and worst band go from there. Or we could set up some criteria, like charisma, fear, kill count, etc. and have a little fun with it by assigning points. I guess it depends on how structured we want it to be. Like do we want it to be more scripted and closer to a video essay, or would it be better for it to be more free-form and podcasts?

    Also, I just realized that Ardyn covers another layer of FNC themes in XV. He’s also chosen by the crystal and his fate is unavoidable, just like Noctis’. He’s a warrior of darkness. The twist being that he was chosen by the same crystal as the warrior of light, his power was forced on him instead of resulting from his list for power, and he himself isn’t really aligned with the darkness - or the Starscourge - other than that he’s destined to use that power so that it can be banished once and for all. The more I think about him and Niflheim’s descent to darkness, and how both parties would’ve probably been better off had they not encountered each other. Seems like tragedy really is stitched into the very fiber of FFXV, huh

    Hey so making the Ardyn thread has reminded me that we were planning an FF Villain talk that never got recorded. Perhaps we should fix that one day

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
