    Okay, so I’m saying this now in order to be accountable because you’ve kinda sorta become my writing partner over time: if I don’t submit my novel-related short to you by tomorrow, I am a disgusting human being that can’t ever finish what he started. I need to get this project off the ground and I can’t keep procrastinating. It’s write or die now, basically.

    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.

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

My Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten: Xenosaga Episode III: Also Sprach Zarathustra

by Wolf Kanno on 12-30-2019 at 10:56 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
