    I personally think some general major story beats werE preserved - I’m pretty sure for example that the time skip and Noctis’ sacrifice was going to be there just going by the cryptic quotes in the early trailers - and the opposite interpretation of FNC I mentioned.

    And FNC may not be super original, but in concept it’s something I think could have been great because it returned to the roots of FF and deconstructed it. The concept of fighting fate in general is done often, but rethinking how heroes chosen by the crystal work is something that only really works in FF, and I’m honestly just sad it ended up being wrapped up like it did. XIII was very disjointed and it’s sequels only muddled the mythos. Type-0 was cool but Tabata quit and we’re not getting it’s sequels. And now XV is distancing itself from it and it’s true ending is getting relegated to a novel, which I have a feeling isn’t very good because these guys make video games. I just wish this concept was done justice because Type-0 and XV both show it has a lot of promise, especially from the perspective of someone who’s been with the series from the start. But what can you do.

    Incidentally, I’ve found that once you become a parent, you get this strong primal reaction to anything related to kids in media. Knowing what I know about XV and being a father now, I just learned that I cannot watch the Dawn trailer and not start sobbing uncontrollably

    Yeah, I’m vaguely aware of that. But you see what I mean, right? And then how it all ends in the base game makes sense considering how Nomura said Versus is kind of an opposite to XIII, which was all about defying fate, while XV seems to be about accepting it. And now the Dawn of the Future novel that adapts the cancelled DLCs gives this thing a true ending that is more in line with the base FNC message and like... I really can’t help but wonder what the point of insisting this is no longer FNC was when it’s still an FNC story just without the terminology

    One thing that bugs me about FFXV is that despite all the stuff they tried to change to distance themselves from it, it’s still very much an FNC game on a thematic level. And I feel this is bad because disconnecting it from the mythos terminology just makes the mythology seem more shallow than it actually is. Now that I’ve also played Type-0 I can see that the themes of fate in the face of forces far beyond your control and understanding is a thing that all of these games do. XV just pretends it doesn’t and that’s disappointing.

    So other than watching Kingsglaive, I’ve been looking at some of the interviews around XV and Darin De Paul, Ardyn’s VA, is honestly making me smile so much. In every interview he’s basically geeking out over his character and honestly, as far as I’ve seen him, his performance really does stand out. It’s so fun to see someone bring so much authentic passion to a character.

    Yeah, I’m stoked. It has all the DLCs too so I’m really looking forward to trying it

    I've lost count of the number of people I've unfriended and thereby lost contact with because of the election. It's a shame it took a turd being our president for people to really start showing who they are as individuals. Might be worth another shot, especially if BoB does end up having to close this down. Are you only on Steam?

Projects!!!

by Wolf Kanno on 01-28-2021 at 08:40 AM
Oof, I've been a bit out of sorts with my mental health lately, and I think it's about time I do something about that. I've got a lot of balls in the air so to speak concerning projects I've been doing around the forum both past and present. So I'm thinking about tackling a few of them, but with how I've been feeling lately, I want some second opinions I guess. Of the projects I've abandoned, what should I work on next?

Here's where I'm at for the moment:

WK's Top 100 Lost but Not Forgotten : Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together

by Wolf Kanno on 05-25-2020 at 12:43 AM

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 02:37 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 03:32 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 09:17 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
