    Sounds interesting. Can't wait to see how it plays out. So I take that its more like Tactics Ogre than FFT in that regard where the stones eventually overtook the story, while TO basically meeps it purely pplitical.

    Its actually pretty hard for me to describe the fantasy component of my thingwithout going intoore detail, so let me just say that magic used to be more abundant in the past, has ben commodified and is basicaoly a science now but isweaker, butsomething is causing it to come back to its former level. And that's kind of the surface of hhe main plot, but we'll see where that goes

    Sounds like a solid basis for a good plot. Are you planning on integrating any overt fantasy elements, or just leave it more about the historical side of things?

    I'm currently looking into some non-European history since I kind of want to make the story less conventional by having a setting not be inspired by Medieval Europe (and yet I still kinda consider it high fantasy? It's weird). Also, lots of myths and religion. I also have a character kinda sorta based on Nicholas II Romanov, who's also kind of the opposite of him at the same time? It's weird.

    But yeah, I can see a lot of Tactics Ogre, FFXII, and other influences in the story I have in my mind for now as well. Also, Xenogears, which I only noticed later on. But still, I've really only just started and think the story will change to the degree that the inspiration might not be visible unless you're looking for it. Hell, I'd say it's pretty different already.

    I'm kind of envious of the fact that you could successfully study history, tbh. Like I said, I love reading and hearing about it and I think it's super important. I just wish I actually had the opportunity to take it in properly back when I was still at a young and malleable age.

    But I definitely won't let my lack of historical knowledge stop me. I'll research what I need, but in the end, I don't want my faithfulness (or lack thereof) to real life history to hamper the story I'm trying to write.

    I did decide to take a leaf out of his book by inspiring parts of the stories on real life historical events. It's been an interesting brainstorming session, to say the least, considering history has always been one of my weakest subjects. Mostly because my elementary school teacher killed all my enthusiasm in the subject by humiliating me in front of the whole class. Which is a real shame because when I do get down to it, I love history, but learning it has always been a horrendous experience.

    But still, it's just fantasy

    Yeah the PSP battery life sucos. Though the Vita's is better, its still much weaker than the 3DS XL's. And ven that really has nohing on my ds lite which isjust a beast when it comes to battery life.

    And I get you. Im not playing P2EP roght nowsimply because im not in a megaten mood atthe moment, but still plan to return to it. Matsuno moods are the best kind though.

    Also, managed to write a significant amount today! woo!

    Tactics Ogre is definitely one of those games I think about coming back to one day, just to see everything it has to offer because I didn't have the energy to do it all at once. It's still fantastic how the PSP version made so much of the content more accessible.

    Speaking of SRPGs, I was going to say Regalia is a good game for you if you ever want tot get back into the genre since it's actaully pretty short for the genre standards and that's really refreshing. But since you're back into the genre with Tactics Ogre, I guess that's a moot point

    btw have you seen this?

    Tactics Ogre is fantastic and I"m happy to hear it inspired you! How far are you in?

    I haven't been doing nearly enough writing, so I'll try to do more today. But then, I also restarted Chrono Trigger - mostly because of your list - and it's so nice. Hope it doesn't totally kill my productivity!

    Who knows But I mean, I think even Sakaguchi himself said FF is for kids and that older fans should just let it go, so maybe I shouldn't worry too much

My Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten: Xenosaga Episode III: Also Sprach Zarathustra

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

My Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten: Suikoden IV Part 2 ~ Suikoden Tactics

by Wolf Kanno on 06-17-2019 at 07:25 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 07:53 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
