    I agree that they’re fairly generic and that the characters are really... weak. But honestly, imo the game’s don’t really start to shine until the second game (or the end of the first, even? Though I find GS1 pretty bland, its build up to the climax I’d pretty awesome), where you really get to see the unique world design which is where this game shines, imo. I can now tell how much this game took from Dragon Quest (e.g. the town vignettes, the menu, etc), but nowhere is it clearer than in the world design, which is evocative of DQIII, in that it’s based on the real world. However, I feel it’s done a bit better because the games actually go a little bit deeper into showcasing these diverse cultures, and there’s full two games to explore them, so it never feels rushed. Other things I enjoy is that the game’s kinda deconstruct themselves later on, which is always neat, and I just love the dungeons designs. The puzzles may not be too difficult but I like how they make the dungeons flow and how they tie directly into the character class and skill system.

    Ill have a listen in a second. Just got to work, need to plug my headphones in

    So out of curiosity, what is it about Golden Sun that you don't like?

    Well, I wouldn't call it a breakthrough. I've still barely written anything. But I should be able to wrap up that side story soon. And maybe send it to you?

    Damn that's a good one. I'll have to be on the lookout for more.

    Ha, funny story, I recognize Migrant Bird because I've heard the track used in a Super Mario World romhack. But pretty great tracks indeed.

    Fair enough. Though I imagine there is way to make it have that evil without any other instruments. The choir just adds a tad too much color imo - the pure organ just has this weird austerity that perfectly balances the rest of the immensely chaotic track.

    In other news, I had a sudden surge of inspiration regarding my novel, but the problem is it’s for a rewrite of the beginning section. And I’m not sure I wanna go back there just yet since I need to stick to a system. But I will try to keep that in mind as I continue writing because I feel like I finally get the main character and he’s finally stopped being frustratingly passive.

    Also you're right, your post was bite-sized enough to just listen to all songs on it ^^ some pretty great ones I didn't know, especially that Wild ARMS theme, wow.

    Holy trout that is amazingly made. Wasn't even familiar with Azumanga Daioh but looked it up right away and they captured it wonderfully. Fanart can really go places sometimes.

    It was good, though imo the only correct way to make it is by having it be a total organ solo. The choir here didn’t hurt, and it was still very well done, but I honestly feel it’d have been more effective with just the organ

    Oh wow. I wanna know what soundfont this person uses. I’m a bit torn on the final movement though, since I can barely hear the melody over the drums, but overall it was really smurfing good.

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
