    Man, all those people are weak

    Yeah.. For me, it's mostly that I can't save because we're saving up for mortgage. We've long outgrown this rented apartment and want kids and stuff, so we need a home of our own ASAP. Sadly, a PS4 is thus low on our priority list and I really have to hope I can get it as a gift

    Yeah... I'm hoping my parents' financial situation gets better and maybe I'll get a PS4 for Xmas. Things aren't looking up though

    I totally agree and I'm happy he made that decision.

    That reminds me - I heard this piece of news that FFXV's first half is more open world, while the latter is more linear. Not to the point of XIII-linear, but just more focused on the story. This makes sense, IMO, because as much fun as I had in games like Morrowind, it really would have helped immensely had there been some more focus as the story progressed. I mention this because I've heard many people complain that No Man's Sky is so overwhelmingly huge.

    Wow. Drama always sucks, but yay for all the rest! Too bad you couldn't get into too much detail at the panel, but it's still great that fun was had by all

    Oh right! How did that go for you?

    Yeah, well, what can you do. We get good music in DQ and that's all that matters. It's a shame we're not getting the best possible product here, but we'll make do, I think.

    So, anything interesting you're playing right now?

    I just swung by the first time in forever and saw your birthday message to me from several months ago. I'm not sure what was more startling: that someone had wished me happy birthday here years after my last regular activity, or that I still have hair in my user profile picture.

    From what I heard, no, it's rather a licensing issue. As it turns out, Koichi Sugiyama is actually a total dick. On top of being the Japanese equivalent of a Holocaust denier (he says this didn't happen, basically), he's in charge of this organization that is responsible for all those music license deals and in general being stingy as all hell. They just couldn't secure a contract and he believes that the synth works better for the games (which I completely disagree with, since the synths he uses were never good and I feel his music loses a lot of its appeal when it;s not performed live).

    In general, I'm miffed that the reason is political and not technical, really, because if it were just size limitations there would be a chance we'd get the orchestral version as DLC, but no cigar. Damn, a man can compose awesome music and still be kind of a dick. I get the feeling Western Dragon Quest fans aren't that respected in Japan.

Fighting Evil by Moonlight...

by Wolf Kanno on 06-14-2016 at 08:21 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 06:49 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 09:07 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

Trying to remember a feeling.

by Wolf Kanno on 11-04-2014 at 09:02 AM
Normally I really hate writing personal posts like this but my strong dislike of EoEO and the fact this topic doesn't feel quite "EoEO material" as well as posting it in the Writing Forum felt weird because it's a bit too personal and I feel that forum should stick to its primary focus.

So recently I came upon some writer's block with a novel I am working on and so I decided to shift gears and work on a different story instead until I recharge and have a chance to step back

That Game Company Collection

by Wolf Kanno on 03-29-2014 at 09:06 PM
Haven't done a blog in ages and I wanted to talk about this without starting a thread.

So I picked up the That Game Company Collection set a while back and finally last December I played through it. I'm not going to bother discussing the cell phones style games cause... yeah... I'll simply focus on the Big 3 that everyone bought the set for.

flOw - Is and interesting game with some cool dynamics to it. It's pretty short but I'm a busy person and so this is actually a
