    As a translator, I can guarantee that’s not how that works. Puns by their nature are untranslatable. You have to come up with new ones.

    So today I learned that Richard Honeywood, Xenogears’ sole translator, was responsible for the localization if DQVIII and the DS remakes. So we have him to thank for the new DQ localization standard :P

    Well, I got a boost of confidence from the contest, so I got a burst of speed. Don’t know if I’ll have a beta draft by the end of the year, but that’s my goal! Bro’s started Xenogears, so we’ll hopefully get the comic rolling soon too. I’m also thinking of submitting the story to a contest with an actual prize so who knows, maybe I’ll get published again?

    How about your stuff?

    Thanks. My thought process was kinda all over the place with this, really. When I started writing this, I was super hyped, then as I progressed I started feeling that it was getting less and less scary, but then once I was done, I was really happy with it. I’m glad I haven’t lost my edge when it comes to shorts.

    Can’t believe I finally won one of these contests! :O

    Btw, which one was yours? I’m betting it was the one with the bump, since that felt very much like your style, but who knows, you may have surprised me.

    Aah ^^ was wondering since Nocturne is so high up on your favorites list.

    I think a lot of sci fi authors are hard to adapt. I have yet to see an adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s wow that actually captures that schizophrenic narrative style that’s a staple of his writing. The director’s cut of Blade Runner comes the closest, but something is still missing. It might be that it’s just untranslatable to film

    Which reminds me, my wife is currently reading Solaris by Lem, which I haven’t read tet but fully intend to. I’m assuming that’s where Solaris got its name fro in Xenogears?

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

My Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten: Arc the Lad II

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

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.

My Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten: I am Setsuna

by Wolf Kanno on 02-23-2018 at 06:38 AM
So I did my Top 100 last year, and this year, I'm focusing on a few entries that didn't make the cut for one reason or another. I'll start off by saying that most of the games mentioned in this blog series are all worth playing, they simply just haven't enraptured me enough to place them on my List. I started with Demon's Souls, and i have about 24 more entries to go. I know I said it would be like four or five, but giving myself some time to think about it made me realize how many great games I
