    Ugh. Lame.

    Where is this optional dungeon and what is it called?

    If all goes well, I'll jump right into the SQQ after this playthrough. From what I checked, the SEBEC route is pretty short and I'm kind of slowly nearing the end? I still want Vishnu, though, so I'll probably need to spend some time grinding...

    It's definitely grown on me, now that I have a focus and know what I'm doing. It's weird. As I'm playing it, all the criticism I had of it still stand - the plot is stupid, the dungeons have pretty terrible designs compared to SMT1, Strange Journey and Soul Hackers, and the battle system is a hot mess, and I still believe SMT1 has aged waaaaay better despite being an older game. But, with that said, I'm just enjoying myself way more. Also, the character interactions are pretty amusing. Mark and Nanjo are the perfect comedic duo. I ship them hard.

    For a moment I was worried I wouldn't be able to complete my Vishnu run because Kuchisake-onna would not respond to anything with eagerness, but then I got lucky on one battle and all was good. Too bad I'm now having the same problem with Orthrus, but I'm hoping I can get over that too. Btw, after grinding a bit more at the Lost Forest before leaving it, I now have zero problems recruiting anyone in Mana Castle, though Nanjo is still lagging far behind. Speaking of, Mana Castle was a fairly enjoyable dungeon, but way less complex than Kama Palace, which surprised me. Am I correct in assuming that they made the middle dungeon the most complex one in the game? That doesn't seem like a smart choice.

    Also, I think you'll be pleased to hear that I've actually moved along with my project. My fanfic is coming along and I should be able to post some more of it once I get a working internet connection at home!

    So, because of your list, I decided to power through the third act of Dragon Quest V (an amazing game, but the pacing starts to die once they drop the episodic structure of the dungeons. Do all of the games suffer from that?) and now I've bought Dragon Quest III on my Android. Still super early, but I'm loving it so far!

    Side note: I see your conversation w/ Fynn and I totally agree on the SMT fanbase. Haven't been on the reddit, but they always kinda struck me as toxic elitist snobs.

    Ugh. So I went to the MegaTen reddit. Not sure if it's reddit in general or just the SMT fanbase but holy crap those people are terrible.

    Well that's cool, then! Fingers crossed!

    As for my Persona 1 progress, I've reached the Lost Forest. The Black Market was probably the most convoluted dungeon so far, so it was a good thing I played it on a Sunday and could do it all in one go. Managed to get all the demons I encountered so far, but I've noticed that I'm hitting walls at the start of each dungeon and need to grind in order to get the demons to like me. Nanjo is lagging behind and I think it's his fault. If I'm not mistaken, it's the average level that matters in the case of demons giving cards, right?

    Also, managed to get my first Fool persona! Of course, I used an exploit, because lol, fusion accidents. In any case, he's awesome. Strong against all? Yes please!

    Yeah. Despite being introduced to both Persona and the SMT series in general through P3, I still really think the pre-3 content is awesome. I enjoyed the hell out of Innocent Sin and now I'm warming up to P1, and I really wish these games were acknowledged more since it has been confirmed they all take place in the same continuity. Still hoping that PQ2 has Persona 2 characters in it.

    I can see what you mean when it comes SMTIV, and while I mostly agree, I also feel kinda differently. I was pretty much playing I and IV in tandem and everything in IV seemed like a natural progression of the stuff from I, with the more human aspect being something that really only helped drive the points made by the series home - not to mention it was something already present in Strange Journey. I hope I'll get to play Nocturne soon, but looking back on IV, it was a hell of a good game and one I felt was really worthy of being a main SMT game, even if some of its elements strayed from the original vision from SMT. Even a series with such a fixed, firm identity like SMT will naturally evolve overtime, and I think that's a good thing.

    I know there's a fan translation of Devil Summoner in the works. But since it's being made by the same guys that are doing the fan translation of PSP EP and that takes priority (and still has no set release date), I'm not holding my breath. It's a shame since I've come to really enjoy the Devil Summoner continuity and hope to get my hands on the Raidou games again one day so I can enjoy it to its fullest.

    I'm probably still the most upset that we didn't get the PSP version of Eternal Punishment. And we Europeans don't even have the PSN rerelease to fall back on. Also, Soul Hackers made it here, but not the original Devil Summoner? Why?

    Tbh, I never felt like IV Persona it up, really. What I read of Final points to that being the case there, but IV felt like a full SMT game through and through. I get the feeling many fans here didn't find it Persona-esque enough, considering the backlash it had for not being Persona 4 again

My Top 100"s Lost but Not Forgotten: Suikoden IV ~ Part 1

by Wolf Kanno on 04-29-2019 at 06:53 AM
List, blah blah. Didn't make it, blah blah.

I feel I have a theme going here. Like the BoF1 entry, anyone who took a quick glance of my list will know I'm a pretty big Suikoden fan, you'll also notice I snubbed one of the main entries and most of the spin-off/gaiden games. I'll say right now, that I have to actually play Suikogaiden due to lacking the proper emulator, which is why

My Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten: Breath of Fire

Blah blah blah, made a list, blah blah blah, this is for games that didn't make it.


Anyone who simply glances over my list will notice I have a strong affiliation with Capcom's classic and underrated RPG series Breath of Fire. They will also notice I left one entry out of the list, and while my BoFII entry hints as to some of the reasons, I figured I would lay it out here

My Top 100's Lost but not Forgotten: Dragon Quest VII

I feel like the year 2001 was an odd year in gaming. One of the first time where you really felt like the end of an era and the beginning of a new one was coming. Sony was gearing up to release the successor to the smash hit PlayStation and if you looked around the gaming scene, it seemed like every company was jumping ship to get on board what the PS2 could do. Square had released their PS1 swan song FFIX even though they would still support the PS1 with

You know the drill by now...


One of my all time favorite publishers in the 90s for video games was Working Designs. It was a company that actually tried to get a lot of cool JRPGs released in the West long before the actual JRPG boom in the last years of the decade. I've already spoken about their most high profile title they ever worked on, Lunar: The Silver Star Story,

My Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten: Final Fantasy III

by Wolf Kanno on 03-07-2018 at 08:10 PM
Blah blah blah Top 100 blah blah blah too many good games to list. Blah blah blah, games that weren't good enough for my list but still excellent nonetheless.


Of the Classic series within Final Fantasy, FFIII was the last one for me to play, partly cause I didn't emulate very often and partly because I had hoped SE would come to their senses and re-release this title.
