    Same, pretty much. Haven’t written more than like two sentences this week since there’s been quite a bit going on. Not to mention everything I write *still* feels like crap. But I really want to keep going.

    Awesome Looking forward to it!

    How’s writing been coming along for you lately?

    Speaking of gooey relationship stuff - will you be taking part in this year’s V-day story contest? If not, maybe you’d prefer to be a judge?

    Well then.

    Guess we need to add this to our list of disputed topics

    Still, it’s not exactly Status Quo is God here. Like, as underwhelming as the reveal was, Mulder’s drive is different after the reveal of his suster’s ultimate date in season seven, and nothing is ever really the same after his abduction. Scully is a full-on Mulder at this point, and not just because she’s trying to make up for the gap he left behind (as was the case in season 8) but because she’s actually decided that after so many episodes she can actually safely believe in aliens and junk now, and would probably be the main believer if it weren’t for the fact that Reyes is almost comically new agey (though I still love her). Her abduction and cancer haven’t been mentioned in a while, since they’ve mostly been overshadowed by Mulder’s own abduction and even Scully’s baby. And then there’s Doggett - even Doggett who’s only here for two seasons had character development as it recently turned out that he’s got an unrequited crush on Scully which is both adorable and tragic because he’s this no-nonsense guy that has his integrity and priorities and that’s precisely why he can’t do anything about it because he knows from the start that Scully loves another and it really puts his character in a totally new light while making sense in the context of the character.

    This is kinda what I mean - the late seasons really shine where they differ from the source material. Sure, the Super Soldier part of the myth arc is like, incredibly dumb (if still fun to watch), but you can see how far the characters have come from where they were initially - and that includes even the latecomers, who are surprisingly fascinating.

    I can definitely see that. As much as I enjoy watching the mythology episodes, I can see that overall it’s hot garbage - but it’s my got garbage, you feel me? It is pretty clear they’re making it up as they go along, with stuff like the black oil serving whatever purpose the writers need them to serve at the moment. But I feel that it’s fine, since we’re still getting high stakes and big character development moments in these episodes, and I’m all for it. I actually really like season five and feel that it has the best mythology episodes, even though what you said it’s true - this is where stuff starts getting really complicated and it starts being obvious that they won’t be able to resolve it all in a satisfying manner. But this season we also saw the intriduction of Jeffrey Spender, a brilliant foil to Mulder, Mulder’s crisis of faith, Scully’s budding belief in aliens (and that incredible hypnosis scene where she remembers seeing the alien ship, where Gillian Anderson’s acting really gave me chills).

    So I think this really goes back to the plot vs characters thing, in the end. I can forgive a series plot that has a big chance of going nowhere as long as it really gives the characters room to grow. At the very least, at least Scully taught us how to make rolling your eyes at all this stupid alien trout in a sexy way

    Okay, I know I’m committing fan heresy but... so far I like season nine. The fiery monster of the week episode was very chilling with some fantastic character scenes that help build the relationships between the main trio, and Agent Doggett was shown from a surprising new angle that just makes me feel for him even more. I can understand why many people don’t hold the later seasons in high regard - the cast changes, the convoluted myth arc, the post 9/11 climate - but overall I am still really enjoying the X-files, and though things have changed (something ends, something begins, as we’re often reminded by the Witcher ), I still feel the core of the show remains. The search for the truth against all odds, with some awesome supernatural elements sprinkled with human drama.

    So I’m ready to be crucified and called Lucifer because I still love the X-files and it’s not a guilty pleasure

    Listening to it right now. It’s very pleasant. And I definitely get that Samurai Champloo vine.

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
