    Hey, you don’t really need fire to beat the game. And I’m pretty sure you get access to much more in the post game. Which reminds me that generation 4 had a pretty cool post game. So many legendaries to catch.

    That’s not a problem if you play Platinum though. Plus, there’s always Ponyta

    Piplup’s cool, but I do have a soft spot for Chimvhar. It really carried me through the whole game. Interestingly, even though Gen IV has my least favorite Pokémon designs overall (most look like plastic toys and the colors are pretty bad), I still like the starters overall. They have a nice common visual theme. I also like that mechanically, they each get a type later on that counters the Pokémon they’re weak to. Infernape’s fihting type is a perfect counter for Empoleon’s steel type, Torterra’s ground type makes Infernape much less dangerous to it, and Empoleon’s added steel type reduces its weakness to grass. I don’t think they ever attempted a similar idea later on despite playing with starter types a lot

    Yeah, the first three gens and Gen 7 have the most solid starters in general, imo. I was honestly surprised with how great the Sun and Moon ones were. Incineroar has actually managed to become my favorite starter of all time, actually. It doesn’t hurt that the in game animations give it tons of personality.

    Torchic is amazing, though I am biased because I always pick the fire starter, no exceptions. I also really like the typing it gets later on, even if that bit is controversial because two subsequent fire starters have the exact same ruling. I honestly don’t mind but I can see why people are upset and I find it hilarious how now it looks like Scorbunny is also going to be fire/fighting.

    Also, I think it’s worth mentioning that this is probably the most popular batch of starters aside from the original trio. Usually people who don’t like the design of the other Gen 3 mins like the starters. Not to mention they’re just some of the best starters around competitively.

    Which starter did you pick?

    Well, GSC is available on the 3DS eshop, if you'd like to play the originals. Though I would personally recommend the remake, I figured this approach would work better for you. Plus, honestly, unlike Red/Blue/Yellow, the originals actually still really hold up, imo.

    For the longest time gen 2 was my favorite and was kind of this standard to which I compared every other Pokemon game. It's great. I recommend it. Gens 5 and 7 are also fantastic, imo.

    I think my favorite part is where all the tall grasses are with the rain. But you'll get to that later.\

    If memory serves, you haven't really played the generation 2 games yet, right?

    Well, there you go Hoenn is a cool region. I like how warm and brimming with life it feels.

    Yeah, some games are worse for this than others. Though at least Pokémon RSE has those shortcuts you mentioned - the routes circle around each other so it’s very easy to backtrack and the whole region seems connected (though not as wwll as Johto). You’d be much worse off if this were Diamond/Pearl Platinum. That region is huge and you really need to work at unlocking the few shortcuts that there are. Most of them go through that huge ass mountain in the middle of it all, so you can’t even reliably avoid random battles.

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

by Wolf Kanno on 05-24-2020 at 11:43 PM

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 01:37 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 02:32 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 08:17 PM
You know the drill…

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, it’s 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 09:56 PM
Top 100 List Blah blah blah…. 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
