    Yeah 10 is a pretty harsh number which I couldn't really stick to myself *cough* so much great music in games.

    Haven't continued playing yet, in part because it is a bit fatiguing going through the same tasks (and the same final boss fight) repeatedly and tbh I'm not looking forward to doing the prehistoric parts again, but also cause I've both started Celceta now and I'm still regularly working on my Warcraft III map as well. It's supposed to be a Final Fantasy based RPG map, but I guess I'm now kinda tying elements from all different kinds of RPGs into it, but it's pretty fun.

    Well it's had a rocky history dating all the way back to the 80s. Ys I and II are essentially two halves of one game, then there's Ys III: Wanderers of Ys, several games that are all Ys IV (it's a mess), and the elusive Ys V. Then the series died for 8 years until it eventually returned with Ys VI: Ark of Naphistim, as well as Ys Origins (a prequel, essentially Ys 0) and several updated remakes of the earlier games: Ys Chronicles (remake of I + II), Ys: The Oath in Felghana (remake of III) and Ys: Memories of Celceta (remake of IV). Ys Seven also came out around this time. Finally, there's been Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, and later this year (and presumably localized next year) there will be Ys IX: Monstrum Nox. Hopefully Ys V will also have a remake localized at some point (it got one on the PS2), it's the one game in the series that never made it overseas, and I don't know much about it myself.

    So given the number of remakes, there's really only 8 major games to play through, 7 if you discount Ys V for the time being.

    Edit: Should also mention that most Ys games have been ported to Steam by now, making them pretty nicely accessible.

    Well before that I do have some more Ys games - next up Ys: Memories of Celceta - on my list of games to play ^^ but I'll get to it eventually.

    Yeah been thinking about getting into Dark Souls for a while, I'd probably enjoy it quite a bit, though I admittedly far prefer anime aesthetic with hype music (like this) over that dark and gritty medieval aesthetic Dark Souls has. It's like how games like Touhou would be entirely unplayable for me if they didn't have the visuals and music they have. That's what has been turning me off the series for now. But I still guess I owe it to myself to give it a chance at least.

    Looking forward to more FFV from you ^^

    Aah, blasts from the past I see ^^ I actually just booted up Ys: Oath of Felghana back up myself (I kinda started Chrono Trigger when I was at the final dungeon of that game) and promptly got reminded of what a brutal and unforgiving game it is. There's something to be said about games where you can go for 15-30 minutes of pure constant action gameplay and get several levelups without a save point in sight, they're exhilarating as all hell, but also do get frustrating for sure, ha.

    Up to fixing the Masamune in my NG+ for now btw. Still a while before I can access them but I hear the three new vortex dungeons actually lead to an alternate final boss battle?

    Sounds fun. What've you been playing lately?

    Aqua hits the right balance in everything tbh. She is perfection.

    The last bits of all the stories in this game are the best tbh. For such a dark game and for how short the world visits are, the game does kinda meander in super lighthearted moments

    Yeah I heard the Ocean Palace version has far increased stats? Does that apply to all of its forms or just the shell?

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

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

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

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
