    Awesome! Glad to hear you're getting something going

    So the takeaway is that I should play Ages first

    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.

    Thought you might find this interesting

    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.

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

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

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

My Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten: Breath of Fire

by Wolf Kanno on 04-14-2019 at 10:23 PM
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
