    Awesome, looking forward to it!

    Btw, as I’ve said in the thread, after Spirit Tracks I’ll probably jump into the Oracle games, but I can’t decide on the order I should go. How are you going about it? I know one is more focused on combat the other on puzzles, so since I prefer puzzles, I should probably leave the puzzle heavy one for later?

    Speaking of Wind Waker, I feel like I’m pretty much the only person on the internet that was disappointed with it? I mean, I liked it alright, but then i had this hype for it built up that when I did finally play it, I was let down. Mostly due to the final stretch of the game. It kind of feels like the most rushed 3D Zelda to me because of that, since it’s pretty clear there was supposed to be one or two more dungeons there.

    So how are things? I’ve been itching to reply in the Zelda thread with some of my picks but I’ve been so busy with work. I did beat Phantom Hourglass in the meantime though and just started Spirit Tracks. Liked PH way more than expected but it’s still one of the weaker Zeldas.

    I think the 20th and 21st century are actually my favorite era of artistic music, if only for the sheer variety of approaches that arrived here, along with just the general deconstruction of what music is, dismantling music theory fundamentals, etc. it’s great.

    As for Beksiński, I have this strong memory of visiting his museum as we were going on our vacation to Slovakia as a teen. I remember not really enjoying it at the time, though the experience really stuck around with me for a long time. Now when I look at his art, I’m shocked at how beautiful I think it is.

    Well, you could always just pay an editor to do that :P

    Uh, yeah, contest fees are a bitch. It's always good to keep trying with the free ones, though. Perhaps you'll also find some with fees that you consider worth it. It's always kind of a gamble, but that's one way to get your work out there.

    As for me, I haven't really been writing much in terms of recently, but that's because my whole life has been intensely chaotic lately and I've been just doing everything to survive in the meantime. I did manage to secure a job that's actually a pretty significant upgrade from the last one (I'll actually be working for Oxford University Press now, which is pretty sweet), so I'm hoping that now that the biggest cause for my misery - that being my previous job - being eliminated, I'll have enough energy to put more of it into writing. I am doing my best to at least fill out my story notebook my wife gave me for Christmas, so while no actual writing was done, I have actually progressed with planning out my novel a bit.

    Looking forward to your blog posts, as always! And don't sweat about the Mognet Message - I've gotten used to the pace of our mognet conversations In my gaming news, I continue focusing on covering new grounds, so after finishing Ys II, I moved on to Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky and it has been pretty sweet so far. I'll probably come back and finish DQXI after this, though my backlog of these new isometric RPGs is also growing right now, with my wife kind of edging me to go there, so we'll see.

    How fares the hunt, kupo?

    I did watch the Christmas episode actually and it’s so weird they left it out of the regular block. It was pretty integral to the whole thing.

    Also, finished Ys Seven and started Ys I. Seven was pretty clever with its plot twists overall and I enjoyed the pace of the combat and the game in general. And no point did it feel like it was padding (which is a feat, considering you basically have to go around the world map twice). Ys I has also been a blast so far. The bump system is very fun now that I actually equipped the sword I was given and am not getting destroyed left and right. What’s fascinating to me is that, despite coming out half a year before FFI, this game’s story feels already denser than the first three FFs. Granted, this story doesn’t span an entire world, but it’s still admirable that they put so much care into developing this game’s world so much even back then. Like, every NPC is named and has something interesting to say.

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
