    I should clarify - by pseudo-legendary I mean Pokémon that are always near the end of a regional Pokédex, have stats almost as high as legendaries in their final forms and evolve twice at very high levels. Think Dragonite in RGB or Tyranitar in GSC. In RSE this is Salamanca, which starts out as a goofy dragon baby named Bagon.

    If I recall correctly, there are some far more interesting species once you reach the very tall grass. But that’s, as always, subjective. Also, I know that you can catch this game’s pseudo-legendary in Meteor Falls, but I’m not sure if you can do it without HMs. I imagine surf may be necessary.

    Honestly, I’m the same - collecting is the absolute most fun thing about Pokémon. Still, I like to recommend party members simply because not all Pokémon are made equal and you can cut significantly on grinding if you just replace your mind, SMT-style Speaking of, once you obtain your badge and cross the sea, the Pokémon diversity will increase quite a bit, if I recall correctly, so you might find some cool candidates for you to consider.

    I’m pretty sure Feebas is caught while surfing, but I’d have to check. You’ll definitely need to surf soon too, so either the good rod is somewhere near or you can catch more than Magikarp with an old rod this time, can’t really remember. The biggest problem with Feebas is that it shows up on exactly one tile in one particular body of water, and what tile it is is randomizes by you changing that trendy name at the club in Dewford Town. You’d need to look up a guide to determine how you can increase your odds, so it can be a drag. Still, I can vouch that the result is well worth it. Not only does it look cool, but there’s a reason so many of the end-game trainers have it in their party.

    Vigor .org is an interesting case, btw. A lot of people actually decide not to evolve it because, while Slaking has phenomenal stats, on par with pseudo-legendaries, it’s ability significantly gimps him. In the end it’s a matter of whether you prefer a weaker but much speedier and uninhibited mon, or a much stronger one with limitations.

    Tbh, I’d stick with something that can fly - remember HMs are a thing all the way until generation 7 Golbat actually evolves into Crobat now with enough happiness, and that’s definitely one good non. Peliopee is pretty trash though, and Surskit’s evolution isn’t really much to write home about since it loses its unique typing and becomes a generic bug/flying. Want an interesting bug Pokémon? Catch a Nincada and get it up to the point that it evolves (lv 20 or 25, I think), but make sure you have at least empty space in your party. Something interesting will happen

    Gyarados is always a good choice, but with Hoenn’s abundance of water types, you might want to look around more before committing. Personally, I’d recommend Feebas. It’s kind of a Magikarp expy in that ynevolved it’s dumb and ugly, but it’s one of my absolute favorite once it evolves. There are two issues however. 1) Catching it is an incredibly difficult task with tons of RNG that can screw you over and you basically can’t do it without a guy or unless you get luck, and 2) evolving it is tricky as well because it’s level doesn’t matter - it’s Beaty stat does. It will only evolve once you max out beauty. So it’s definitely a cumbersome process, but if you’re interested in a challenge, you should try it - the resulting Pokémon is really something imo.

    And yeah, your dad is next. I wouldn’t stress about grinding though, your Combusken will probably sweep him.

    Funnily, people are already making edits removing the socks and enlarging the boobs. Because people are dumb.

    It does kind of feel like they’re blending some of the more interesting elements from XII, XIII and XV into this battle system. If anything, it does look like a solid blend of action and ATB, which is exactly what they promised. I’m also just shocked that this is coming out in less than a year.

    What’s also strange is that, I don’t know if you’ve noticed but the voice cast has been entirely replaced. I have no idea why. New guys sound really good, Cloud especially, but still

    Similar. My interest was near zero, but then somehow, magically, this trailer and gamplay has sold me on this? Like it genuinely feels like how I felt about the original game at first, while at the same time there is evidently a lot of new concepts in this, and I'm all up for reinterpretation. I have similar worries regarding Aerith, but this trailer was also a bit better about showing her, so I'm still hoping they'll keep her streetwise. And I know you're not a Tifa fan, but I do like the way she seems to be fitting into this game. Her design is nice and I like that she's voicing the more moral concerns regarding Avalanche's activity that the original game kinda glossed over. It looks like they;'re trying to add a bit mroe self-reflection this time around, which might bode well for the third act of the game, but we'll see.

    So far, I'm convinced it'll be three disks, with the second one ending either after Aerith's death or Cloud's breakdown, but we'll see. Honestly, when thinking about it, making Midgar a whole game of its own makes a ton of sense with how dense it is compared to the rest of the game, and I'd rather have a really fleshed out, explorable Midgar than have it be half-assed just so more game can happen. Also, structurally it works, with the Shinra building acting as a great final dungeon of a first entry.

    Another thing that I really like so far is the battle system. The ATB gauge use with the menus, along with switching party leaders on the fly really reminds me of FFXII, which is always a good connection to make. Makes me wonder if we'll have something like gambits for the party members not currently controlled.

    Which skill set did you end up picking for her? I had the zip one that gives you Megido earlier and it was great

My Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten: Suikoden IV Part 2 ~ Suikoden Tactics

by Wolf Kanno on 06-17-2019 at 06:25 AM

So in my last blog, I talked about the black sheep numbered entry of the Suikoden franchise, Suikoden IV. Today, we're going to look at Rhapsodia, better known as Suikoden Tactics in the West. Tactics is a gaiden title that serves as both prequel/sequel side story to Suikoden IV. What makes it really standout is that the game is no longer a turn-based RPG about collecting 108 heroes, but instead a Tactical Turn Based RPG a la Final Fantasy Tactics, Fire

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

by Wolf Kanno on 04-14-2019 at 10:23 PM
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

by Wolf Kanno on 10-26-2018 at 05:42 AM

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

*******************************************************************************


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,
