    Man, same. I've actually been not writing at all for the Independence Day long weekend we just had and I alternated between playing Baldur's Gate 2, Final Fantasy X-2, and actually replaying Xenoblade Chronicles X since I didn't feel I played it properly the first time. I just felt pulled to it somehow (don't judge). And see, just now I started and noticed that Mira has 5 moons, all of which are translucent, and that the sun both rises and sets on the west and actually disappears immediately after daybreak/shows up just for sunset, which you could chalk up to technical limitations, but considering the revelations that happen later, I'm inclined to believe it's intentional.

    No worries. I've honestly also kind of put that project on the back-burner for a while as I work on my short stories this month, so I don't really think there's a rush with this - or even a need for more feedback. Hopefully I can get something more from you once I have my manuscript ready. So yeah, don't worry about that

    Yeah, I have no clue, as you never did end up showing up before I woke up. Course, my brain could have just been coming up with an excuse not to show you prcisely because it doesn't know what you look like

    Btw, just out of curiosity, are you still planning to give me feedback on my feedback to your feedback?

    Honestly, I've never been bothered by all that too much. Unlike FFIII DS, the Tactics Ogre remake is extremely fun to me and I like a lot of the choices made, whereas the original doesn't really sound like something I would enjoy. Of course, never having played it, I can't confirm that 100%, but from the sound of it it just sounds tedious? Idk. What I really appreciate about the PSP remake, though, are the production values. Like holy hell, the game is incredibly pretty with fantastic new artwork by the one and only Akihiko Yoshida, and then there's the incredibly well-made music rearrangements from Hitorhi Sakimoto. They've really gone out of their way to make this remake feel like a completely new, modern (at the time) game.

    Btw, last night I had a dream and you were in it. Basically you came to visit and it was the middle of the night and I'd completely forgotten that you were coming that late so I had to get up and run around the house in a frenzy, getting everything ready.

    I never know when exactly your birthday is because you're a secretive little bastard, so I'll just wish you a happy birthday now Hope the next year in your life is even better than the last one!

    On a completely unrelated note (as I kinda need to get away from thinking about writing for a bit, because my mind has gotten obsessive about putting my own damn self down again), I'm really looking forward to Romancing SaGa 3. Don't know if I'll be able to play it righ away, since I don't exactly have money to spare, but it's a definite buy at some point, for me. Now, if I could only decide who to play as. I've narrowed down the choice to Katrina and Khalid, since they're two of the hottest protagonists available, it looks like, the problem is which should I pick? I know Katrina is not playable at all if you don't start with her, so that seems like a no-brainer, but then I heard Khalid can be hard to recruit/is expensive when hue's not your protagonist. Hmm...

    Tell me about it. Though I feel the theme can develop with the story as you go along, I'm also struggling with a hook. It doesn't help that most of my ideas are basically "ok so this starts out like regular X BUT ACTUALLY" and that's really hard to sell without spilling the beans from the getgo. Still, yeash, it's important that you write what you feel is appropriate for you now. I started with what is going to be the second or third story in the collection simply because it's the one I wanted to write right now. That said, I feel it's probably the most depressing one in the book, and that's saying something considering my last year's halloween story is set to be in this collection

    I think it's normal that once you start actually working on a project, it loses a lot of its lustre. Like, I just started the NaNo thing and was super excited about my story that is high fantasy on the surface but it's actually cosmic horror, but now that I'm writing it, it's like pulling teeth again. You really gotta push through it if you want to finish something.

    That reminds me I need to do that myself. I also did the Dragovian chapter on the 3DS, but never got around to rebattling the final boss to see the golden ending. Will make an attempt at some point, that's for sure.

    I've yet to sit down to NaNo, but I will try to do that today. I'm gonna work on my short story collection so that I have some stuff that I can start sending out to contest while the whole book gets rejected multiple times. Good to hear that you're excited aboyut a new project. The stuff where you've got nothing planned is usually the most rewarding once it's done.

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

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

by Wolf Kanno on 10-26-2018 at 06:42 AM

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

One of my all time favorite publishers in the 90s for video games was Working Designs.
