    I know the feel of burning out on one style. I’ve acryally recently finished Golden Sun Dark Dawn and haven’t really been playing anything for the last few days. Life’s been a bit too hectic

    Yeah, it’s definitely an interesting mechanic. I also liked how alignments work this time around. It’s not much more complex than what is found in the OG SMT, but it still makes you think more about party composition.

    Btw how do you feel about abilities? It got introduced in this generation and has stayed relevant ever since. One of those big game changing mechanics. Next up is the physical/special split in Gen IV.

    Dragon types don’t really become plentiful until about Gen V. Which suddenly makes the introduction of the fairy type in the next gen havd so much more sense

    Yeah, it’s definitely one of the better Pokémon to have. Though Ruby and Sapphire already had a bit more dragon types than the games before

    Ooh, sorry, generation III actually has two sets of these, though the second one is gifted to you in post game

    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.

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
