    Have you seen this, btw?

    I am very, very picky when it comes to modern anime. Honestly, most of the recent ones that I like can best be described as “arthouse”, and Tatami Galaxy was definitely that. I’ll definitely want to watch Devilman Crybaby eventually, but that’ll have to wait because I don’t watch anime alone, and the wife is currently not... in a state to be watching excessively gory anime

    I know, I’ve read about those. But I have heard that Devilman has influenced SMT to a degree and then there’s also the fact that, apparently, this thing is really good (it’s directed by the guy who did Tatami Galaxy which was excellent, so I have great faith in it) and actually deals with a lot of similar themes.

    Btw, have you seen Devilman Crybaby? I’ve heard a lot of good things and am kinda interested. Someone said something like it’s the closest we’ve ever gotten to a good SMT anime lol

    Well then, now you know what you can add to your inevitable fiction backlog

    That’s great! Honestly, you can’t really read too much - everything you read matters

    Don’t worry, I’m the same way Not only that, money’s tight so far, so it will be a while until I get to the series. Give you more than enough time to prepare too :P (Also, the Witcher books have fan translations available online for free, just an fyi )

    I’ll happily dive in, but why not make this a trade deal, hmm? I get into Souls, you get into the Witcher?

    Yeah, Team Maniax just seems to... not really get it, I’m afraid. I’ve already heard complaints to that degree to SMTIVA, but this is some next level bs. I get that they want to make the series more marketable, but it just pains me to see the one thing that truly set it apart from the other games in the genre. It’s what worries me the most aboit SMTV since it’s done by the same tram, but who knows - maybe they’ll get it by that time.

    Or maybe, you know, I should just get over myself and accept that times are changing

    Speaking of, do you know what other series has great ambiguity? I’ll give you a hint: it’s the Witcher Althoigh honestly they kinda messed it up with the big bad from the Wild Hunt since he was an interesting, sorta morally gray presence in the books, but a genetically doomsday villain in the game. It’s good that the rest of the game’s content make up for it, sspecially the expansions - ESPECIALLY Hearts of Stone which is fricking amazing with how it handles it’s moral dilemma and people still cannot agree which of the two endings to that scenario is the good end and which one is the bad one, and there are solids argument for and against both.

    While I disagree, even if that was the case, the core MegaTen sensibility is supposed to be aboit how humanity is flawed. If the neutral ending suggests this flaw might repeat the cycle at best and destroy humanity at worst, then that’s what it is. There is no magical resent button or savior that will come and just fix our nature. And SJ was so good about this.

    Still, I still can’t wrap my head over the logistics of Lucifer fathering a human daughter. Especially since he’s a woman in this continuity.

My Top 100's Lost but not Forgotten: Demon's Souls

by Wolf Kanno on Today at 04:23 AM
So as many people know, last year I did my Top 100 Games list, but as usual, there were a lot of games I loved that just didn't make the mark for one reason or another. I didn't really want to make a thread about it though, and figured the Blog would suit it better because there is likely only five or six games I wish to highlight here. I also feel annoyed I never use the Blog feature as much since it feels like a better platform for these types of discussions. In addition to these blogs, I do plan

Mononoke Hime

by Wolf Kanno on 11-08-2017 at 02:25 AM

A few days ago, I went to a midnight showing of Princess Mononoke at the Esquire Theater downtown. The very same theater I went to watch it the first time back in 1999 during it's initial release in the States. At that time, I was an avid anime fan who would consume whatever I could find as the medium was only in the beginning phases of it's explosive popularity in the 2000s, so the prospect of being able to watch an anime flick in an actual movie

Fighting Evil by Moonlight...

by Wolf Kanno on 06-14-2016 at 09:21 AM
So tonight I finally broke out a Christmas present I received several years ago that I never watched. Partly because for the first time in a long time, I felt ready for it. I acquired a DVD set that featured the entire DiC dub of the first two seasons of Sailor Moon, so basically the original dub, not the new one. Original Western score, Sailor Says, and the whole "Serena and Darien" name changes.

It was glorious.

Defining Gaming as Art

by Wolf Kanno on 02-23-2016 at 07:49 AM
This was going to have a subtitle, but they all sounded like pretentious academic papers and that kind of goes against the point of all of this.

So recently I began reading a very in-depth article series about two series worked on by one of the more influential game designers/writers in my life, Tetsuya Takahashi. I'll leave it up to Google for you to figure out why. Anyway, it was mostly a really well written and interesting analysis of the works and I actually learn a few things

Neon Lights, Large soda, and a handful of quarters...

by Wolf Kanno on 08-01-2015 at 10:07 AM
So lately I've been reminded of one of my life goals was that I wanted to one day build my own arcade for myself. Get all the games I grew up on and just have a fun little place devoted to letting me play through the classics and relieve the arcade scene I grew up in. I've been discussing this with friends as we try to create a list of the games we would add to the arcade. Of course there would be the classics like Galaga, Gauntlet, Pac-Man, Paperboy, Frogger, and Dig Dug but I also thought about
