    That did actually pop up in my feed! I’ll take a look later, thanks

    Exactly. It’s the audience participation that’s the most exciting prospect

    Yeah that is exceedingly frustrating. People are primarily emotionally driven in the end and largely do not acknowledge it. It's become hard for me to view most arguments as anything more than a clash of egos, and sadly I don't think that's inaccurate at all. The degree to which people can be biased while pretending to themselves and others that they're acting rationally is legitimately frightening at times. I suppose that one codec call from MGS2 goes into this a bit, on how much people actually avoid having their ideas be truly questioned and rather remain in a safe space where they won't have to deal with it.

    I suppose this is where the whole thing of "people should be different" not being something I believe in being tenable as a position comes into play, as I think it's more realistic and efficient to have people face and accept that this is who they are and accept that this also means they shouldn't get to have an opinion with the same weight as someone who can consider things more rationally, instead of trying to nurture everyone into being actually rational with mixed success at best.

    Lol yeah I'd imagine. Our society kinda has a real bad complex about intelligence. Like I'll be frank, I really don't think it's invalid to compare mental aptitude to physical aptitude. Some people have it more than others, and people like Schwarzenegger are on the far top end of the spectrum. It wouldn't be a contentious thing to claim that Schwarzenegger is probably better equipped to lift heavy weights than most people. And yet if you even *dare* imply that people may not be qualified to have a meaningful opinion on important issues, it's "offensive" and "insulting". Dunno, it's just people bloating their egos (which, mind you, really doesn't come as a surprise in a society where you are essentially expected to do so to even just get a job).

    So I’ve just watched the video you sent me. It was pretty cool. It still amazes me how there are people so bent on authorial intent, the writers themselves included, that they refuse to acknowledge that there might be something in there that they didn’t intend. Just like we convey meaning in everyday life through various unconscious cues, often communicating things we never intended, it’s pretty obvious that this will happen through fiction too.

    It's a form vs substance thing I suppose, and due to that I view it as a short term vs long term thing. Short term yeah having more allies for a noble goal is a good thing. But I think it's still valuable to recognize that long term, even just the mindset that it doesn't matter is *inevitably* empowering people who can push their own profits while selling to you that they're doing the right thing to reach/remain at the top, whereas people who would take a hit to themselves for the greater good are conversely disempowered.

    Mind you, while I certainly don't like that, this is more an observation than a normative claim. I don't think any sort of "people should be different" idea is suitable for politics. Part of the reason I don't believe in democracy, people aren't just going to responsibly inform themselves and cast a good vote because they should, and the same thing about empowering people who can sell to you that they're doing the right thing also applies to it.

    Does it really matter that Marvel/Disney is just doing it for the money?
    A fascinating question to ask. I don't have much to add to the topic in question given I don't watch Marvel much anymore but now I'm curious if you think it matters or if it really doesn't matter at all ^^

    Hey just wanted to say thanks for linking to that song by Anri because I'm now a fan! She even recorded an album with Bill Bruford on drums - I was surprised.

    So I thought this might be relevant to your interests

    It's a fantasy novel! A multiple POV one. It's about a frozen world where people have to hunt down and then sacrifice dragons for warmth. So my crew goes on an adventure and finds out there's more corruption and whatnot than they were told. Fun stuff.

    Yeah I just said, smurf it, I like this, others enjoyed it, let's just send it out! Still hard to get form rejections though. Specially when you just put so much of yourself into it. I haven't done anything for contests but I probably should, maybe it'll help me get through some of this stuff with agents.

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

by Wolf Kanno on 06-17-2019 at 06:25 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 06:53 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 10:23 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

My Top 100's Lost but not Forgotten: Dragon Quest VII

by Wolf Kanno on 10-26-2018 at 05:42 AM

I feel like the year 2001 was an odd year in gaming. One of the first time where you really felt like the end of an era and the beginning of a new one was coming. Sony was gearing up to release the successor to the smash hit PlayStation and if you looked around the gaming scene, it seemed like every company was jumping ship to get on board what the PS2 could do. Square had released their PS1 swan song FFIX even though they would still support the PS1 with

My Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten: Arc the Lad II

You know the drill by now...

*******************************************************************************


One of my all time favorite publishers in the 90s for video games was Working Designs. It was a company that actually tried to get a lot of cool JRPGs released in the West long before the actual JRPG boom in the last years of the decade. I've already spoken about their most high profile title they ever worked on, Lunar: The Silver Star Story,
