    I think Kaneko is doing the best of the three. Like he’s no longer directly involved in any Atlus games but I kind of feel like this is where he wants to be. He’s done his art, his directing, and now he’s got a comfortable management position where he can pretty much retire lol

    But yeah, I’d definitely want to see what they’d do now. Also intersted to see what a potential new Persona team would do. Don’t get me wrong, I think Hashino is great, but it feels like another new era of Persona is overdue

    Well he does have writing credits up to 2016, but it looks like he tends to have 4-5 year gaps between projects. I’ve also heard he also writes for stuff outside of video games, so at least he continues to enjoy some success putting his talents to good use. At least he didn’t quit video games forever and resort to squatting lol

    Ha, that was amusing. It was always weird to me how Tadashi left, but seeing how they got him to write more stuff for the EP port, I imagine he’s on good terms with Atlus. I feel he’s definitely better off now than Okada.

    Though it did have the same problem Mulan did with way too many sidekicks. What even was the purpose of the pig that later wasn’t even present for 2/3rds of the film?

    And no, I genuinely think that story wasn’t half bad. There’s a lot of potential there that just needs some polishing to get out. Rome wasn’t built in a day!

    Well in any case, it was nice to hear Jim Sterling express feelings similar to mine. I often feel like such an anomaly for accepting Nomura trout and just in general embracing the more scant garde type of storytelling.

    Today has also been harsh because I felt I should press on, but every step was painful. I long for the days when I could just sit down and write and it would just... come. Almost unbidden.

    And don’t be so harsh on yourself. Elly definitely wasn’t garbage

    Thankfully I have more faith in Nomura than I have in Toriyama in that regard. So I’m hoping any bad Toriyama ideas get shot down And to be perfectly fair, Toriyama was also responsible for the quirky little gem of the SNES era called Bahamut Lagoon, so he’s got that going for him.

    I’m more optimistic because, even with people who hated the ending, the worst criticisms seem to amount to “I liked 95% of the game but that ending”. Which is exactly why I’m excited for the future installments. I’m here enjoying this post-modern stuff and judging by how they handled the characters so far, I’m fairly confident that wherever this game might go, it’s gonna be important. Like Jim himself said (who I personally also watch only occasionally), this is exactly the new SE stuff I expected to happen, but somehow it all seems to work. The only thing that’s really bothering me when I’m watching stuff from this game is how incredibly similar the Materia stuff looks to the Crystarium. I’m not saying that it’s a given that it’s gonna be bad, just that I’m getting PTSD just looking at it.

    In the meantime, I’ve significantly reduced my video game time, boosted my reading time, and my writing time has increased along with it. My inner critic has also received an upgrade now, however, so despite writing more just today than I have all of last week, I am feeling miserable about my writing.

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

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.
