    To be honest, it’s not that I was more excited about him than anyone else, since I’m excited about a lot in the book. It’s just that I’ve spent some time with that first perspective and it’s really cool to finally see a different face of the world take shape.

    I am perfectly okay with the fact that Hamauzu is not everyone’s cup of tea. I greatly appreciate him from an analytical perspective and can see he’s trying to implement more artistic, forward thinking elements to his music, which I feel is a big step in making video game music more varied and artistic in general, but I do realize this comes at the cost of some accessibility. It’s the same issue with the Breath of the Wild soundtrack - it’s phenomenal on an artistic level, but if you’re coming in expecting the energy and catchy melodies of previous Zelda’s, you’re gonna be disappointed (and many people are)

    I’m also excited because I started writing the part of my story with the young emperor protagonist. I’m a bit worried I may end up having to drop the other POVs from this book and split it into separate things, though I’d love it if it were possible to keep this way since I feel it helps me paint a more comprehensive picture of the world. But he’s been delightly proud and bitchy so far.

    It is very pretty

    I remember it being pretty good. But then there were also some pieces that annoyed me. Loved the whale song at the beginning tho

    So how’s stuff? I got a bit of my writing flow back, so I hope to make decent progress soon. I’d love it if I could have a draft that’s serviceable to betas by summer, just so I can take a break while you all read it while I worry about welcoming the baby

    Oh yeah, it’s definitely a good thing. I know I still have a ways to go, but so far Zelda’s world feels like it’s exactly as it needs to be.

    That’s the only game I’ve actually beaten in the series, though I used an emulator and the version I played was the Wonderswan Color version. It was weird that it had GBA level graphics, but the sounds were still standard GB 4 bits

    So have you dipped your toes into SaGa yet? I’m still stuck in the middle of Breath of the Wild, though I do get the feeling that it might actually be shorter than most open world RPGs I’ve played.

    I can’t listen now, but I know there by Hamauzu and I love them.

    Although at this moment I’m kinda obsessed with the BotW soundtrack.

    Oh don’t get me wrong, there’s tons of countries and name dropping in my world too, it’s just that I don’t really want to go ahead and visualize it on a map since I feel that would kinda limit me too much and the world would end up just being smaller because of it.

    The only SaGa game I beat was the first one, though I really want to get the Romancibg SaGa remastered for Vita. Those look real nice

    I’m taking the Sapkowski map in that I’m not drawing a map at all. I have a very rough idea of the world’s general layout and some key details, but that’s in. I do plan to put that rough outline somewhere in the book, though, since it’s kind of thematically important. Had a bit of a problem with place names, but I kind of have a running theme now if naming countries after musical scales, and it’s not just limited to the classical European ones either.

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 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
