    Reached the Tomb of Raithwall. So far so good. I really dig the new Nam-Yensa Sandsea music

    Reached the Sandsea yesterday! I also got a week off from work, though I hope I’ll use that to write rather than play all day

    I can see it. Of course, I can imagine some haters twisting it around and saying that if a game needs a speed mode to be enjoyable it’s broken, but then Bravely Default also has the option of speeding up battles and no one complained there. Like, I love XII and I love its battle system, but sometimes you just want to get around a bit faster.

    Oh yeah, and what’s the point of the Firefly accessory? All it does is reduce the received Exp To zero, which seems kind of pointless considering New Game - exists for low-level runs.

    Man, you’ve brought back memories of XIII. It’s majing me sweat

    As for my progress with XII, I tried to take on Cluckatrice but it’s a bit too difficult right now (not to mention the Gladius I worked so hard on heals it and I sold the Mage Masher ._.), so I proceeded to Bhujerba. Time to chain some skeletons. This should be fun on fast mode,

    Right? If they completely nixed auto-attack and have us this instead, itíd be halfway decent

    It was. In some respects, it’s still ahead. It did so many things right that got ignored. Like, only now Likkars of Eternity 2 is coming out and saying they’re using a gambit-like system inspired by FFXII, and then you realize just how rare that type of system is despite being pretty much groundbreaking

    Another thing I actually love about XII that no game in its style that came after never did is the lack of regular battle themes. It started to get annoying in Xenoblade when every 2-second skirmish had to start playing the battle theme. The fact that the area tracks are composed in such a way that they fit both exploration and battle just makes the thing come together so well

    That’s why I left it as a secondary job for Balthier. It’s all cool though, as I’ve never been big on red mages so it’s nice to see Fran kick ass as one. Also, just stole my Gladius!

    Red Battlemage is MVP, tbh

    I’ve come to the conclusion that FFXII has a very similar status as IV, V and VI in my mind - when I play the game, I just feel like I’m home, for lack of a better word, and I have no idea why I don’t replay it more often. And I don’t know why that is, but there’s just something about it that just makes me feel so good. Remember how I was burnt out on FF after the marathon? Well, with XII it’s yhe exact opposite. It reminds me why I love the series and why I joined this community in the first place. I really don’t know what makes XII special, but I don’t care. It just is.

My Top 100's Lost but not Forgotten: Demon's Souls

by Wolf Kanno on 01-22-2018 at 04:23 AM
So as many people know, last year I did my Top 100 Games list, but as usual, there were a lot of games I loved that just didn't make the mark for one reason or another. I didn't really want to make a thread about it though, and figured the Blog would suit it better because there is likely only five or six games I wish to highlight here. I also feel annoyed I never use the Blog feature as much since it feels like a better platform for these types of discussions. In addition to these blogs, I do plan

Mononoke Hime

by Wolf Kanno on 11-08-2017 at 02:25 AM

A few days ago, I went to a midnight showing of Princess Mononoke at the Esquire Theater downtown. The very same theater I went to watch it the first time back in 1999 during it's initial release in the States. At that time, I was an avid anime fan who would consume whatever I could find as the medium was only in the beginning phases of it's explosive popularity in the 2000s, so the prospect of being able to watch an anime flick in an actual movie

Fighting Evil by Moonlight...

by Wolf Kanno on 06-14-2016 at 09:21 AM
So tonight I finally broke out a Christmas present I received several years ago that I never watched. Partly because for the first time in a long time, I felt ready for it. I acquired a DVD set that featured the entire DiC dub of the first two seasons of Sailor Moon, so basically the original dub, not the new one. Original Western score, Sailor Says, and the whole "Serena and Darien" name changes.

It was glorious.

Defining Gaming as Art

by Wolf Kanno on 02-23-2016 at 07:49 AM
This was going to have a subtitle, but they all sounded like pretentious academic papers and that kind of goes against the point of all of this.

So recently I began reading a very in-depth article series about two series worked on by one of the more influential game designers/writers in my life, Tetsuya Takahashi. I'll leave it up to Google for you to figure out why. Anyway, it was mostly a really well written and interesting analysis of the works and I actually learn a few things

Neon Lights, Large soda, and a handful of quarters...

by Wolf Kanno on 08-01-2015 at 10:07 AM
So lately I've been reminded of one of my life goals was that I wanted to one day build my own arcade for myself. Get all the games I grew up on and just have a fun little place devoted to letting me play through the classics and relieve the arcade scene I grew up in. I've been discussing this with friends as we try to create a list of the games we would add to the arcade. Of course there would be the classics like Galaga, Gauntlet, Pac-Man, Paperboy, Frogger, and Dig Dug but I also thought about
