    That should go down pretty fast. The deck building for Sora’s story is a time sink on its own, but that campaign is also much longer for some reason.

    Oh yeah, I remember that. I’m always willing to listen!

    And sorry for not replying so long. Been a bit busy.

    I honestly think CoM is becoming more important with every subsequent entry. It’s almost like every new game takes one bit from its story and expands on it. I remember back in the day some people were like “I played II, so I got a summary of all the important stuff in CoM anyway.” In come Days, BBS, DDD, and even smurfing coded, and now I am pretty sure III does it again. It’s honestly hilarious how crucial this entry is.

    But yeah, no one who actually cares about the plot says that. Though I do kinda see why people would want to believe that? Like, I get that people complain that crucial plot elements are in “spin-offs”, but Caddicarus summed it up nicely that there’s a very good reason for the distinction between the numbered games and the subtitled games - with the numbered games pretty much evolving the same gameplay, and the subtitked ones being more experimental in that regard. How many people would’ve completely noped out of this series had CoM been labeled II (which would suggest this is the direction the series is going) is probably hard to fathom.

    Anyway, as you said yourself, they’re still just a minority, even if a vocal one. Stop Having Fun Guys exist in every fandom and since our been a big buildup for III, I’m just hoping they got active now and all this talk will subside a little bit now and we can all just.. enjoy the KHs we enjoy I guess. But yeah, if you’re really into this story, like I am, it’s really impossible to hate any entry really and consider it skippable. I’m in this for the long haul, for better or worse.

    On the topic of shifting public opinions, a kind of similar thing happened in Pokémon where Gen 2 used to be the sacred cow of the franchise and now a lot of people criticize it for... basically being the first sequels the series ever had I guess? Tamashii Hiroka touches on this in her review of Gold and Silver (a cool watch that I recommend btw)

    Yeah that part is genius. It’s really the reason why I’m much less annoyed by people who hate the battle system than by those who say the story is terrible because Sora “becomes an unkillable bastard”.

    Like, that’s the entire point of this game???

    In slightly more heartwarming news, I found some forum thread somewhere where someone was asking why CoM was hated. Cue tons of people saying they loved it, and those who didn’t saying they appreciated the experimentation, and even those that completely hated the gameplay loved the story

    Yeah, I remember the boss rushes being intense, but I also remember the remake being way easier. But that may be because I was just older and more experience, idk. I also played it on standard.

    Well, turns out the Sora save actually is an endgame save, so all I need to do now to get some cool new cards is finish the Riku save, so I did a little bit of that. I need to say this, though, the GBA graphics have aged like fine wine. Like holy crap, I forgot how great this game looks.

    Btw have you heard of Project Destati? They’ve been doing some very ambitious KH rearrangements and I’ve been listening to their two albums non-stop recently. One’s called Light, the other is Darkness, and I know a third one titled Dawn is on its way. I highly recommend you listen to them if you haven’t already.

    Still, all this talk about games aside, I’ve actually been reading a lot more recently, and it feels good. Finishing the second Earthsea book and I’m hooked. It’s actually got me in much more of a writing mood.

    You’ve kind of made me want to dust off my copy of GBA CoM. The thing is I just noticed I have two save files on each character, none of which is of a finished game, but each guy has a save file that’s near the end. Don’t know, maybe I should rush them for the clear data, then replay I and then CoM from scratch properly, with all the extra cards

    Yeah, and judging by what I know about III, I think it stays vague, though there is yet another function it plays apparently.

    Honestly though? I don’t mind. I enjoy that there’s an element to this cosmology that is kind of beyond comprehension in universe. And even the people who want to use KH in some way shape or form don’t feally know but just have a strong hunch that X thing will work - but then it kinda does but not really? It’s great

    The discussions are one of the best parts of being a KH fan though I don’t think I’ve mentioned how happy I am that you and I can talk at length about KH again yet

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

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

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,
