    One thing that has been lacking throughout for me though is a character to latch on to emotionally. I dig the plot and the historical angle, but it’d be great if we could see it from a specific character’s lens, so that it means more on a personal level. I guess they’re kinda doing that with Ace, since he’s the one that’s fighting guilt over Izana, but we never focus on him too long. Meanwhile, Rem and Machina are clearly intended to be the emotional core but they fail so miserably at it. Machina is an absolute smurfing idiot with zero redeeming qualities and a stock shonen motive while Rem is just boring and is really mire of a plot device than a character. Part of the reason I like political stories so much - as in FFT, Tactics over or hell, even Song of Ice and Fire - is that the characters take center stage and seeing the incredible political drama unfold as a result of their actions that directly stem from their personalities is just immensely satisfying. Here, the story is undoubtedly cool, but I can feel myself getting detached from it at times. Which is why the focus on class zero escaping and breaking that initial status quo somewhat made such an impact, since I can finally see some characterization happen.

    Speaking of war stories, I never told you my thoughts on Suikoden II, did I?

    I’ve been writing a little bit, but I’ve started. Once I’m done with chapter one, I want to do one chapter weekly. I’m still sticking to that plan.

    I like Type-0. Just had that major event happen in chapter 4. It honestly surprised me and I’m really glad it happened because Class Zero finally has the chance to show some character. Also, the moment you got into the magitek armor in the snow field I got literal chills

    Agreed on all counts. Though in the case of Cater and Nine I feel these are good voice actors with poor direction. No idea what’s going on with Cinque though. Her voice is bewildering.

    Oh yeah, those two are great too. But just out of Class Zero - who are decent all around - I still feel Mercer's delivery feels the least awkwards. Which is ironic, considering the dialogue is supposed to make Trey awkward. I like most of the others too, but it's pretty clear they weren't at their A-game here.

    It's very clear to me that Type-0's localization was rushed. Not because of the translation - although even that has the FNC obtuseness written into it, even if just a little bit - but because of the voice acting. Half the cast are unknowns, while the other half seems to be half-assing it. I don't think it's of their own fault, though, as I can only imagine the direction really wasn't that good here. Orion Acaba is otherwise a pretty terrific voice actor, but his performance as Nine is just... incredibly stilted. As if they gave him one take per line and just went with that. The only exception to this is Matt Mercer as Trey, but that just goes to show how incredibly underrated he is. He literally cannot do a bad performance.

    Ok so I’m nearing the end of Oracle of Ages. Anything I need to particularly look out for in terms of data transfer, or do I just do the link thing at the start of Seasons?

    I basically just don’t know how to make higher tier spells become available, but I can’t remember the details. I’ll let you know once I restart the game and have to deal with it all over again

    So I’m at Mermaid’s Cave at this point and I’m wondering: will I ever get a sword upgrade in Oracle of Ages?

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 drillÖ

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, itís 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 blahÖ. 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
