    It also sounds way more vanilla.

    I actually think the new DQ translations are some of the best translations out there. Puns and accents aside, there’s a level of Polish and attention to detail that just goes far beyond what other RPG translations do. English DQ has its own unique identity that sets its apart from everything else, and as a translator myself, I am a big fan of the approach and has huge respect for the people who did it.

    I’m all for fan work, honestly. I find the very idea that anyone would want to make something based on a thing I made extremely flattering. But yeah, I think I’d love to be involve in a bigger adaptation project - unless it’s a creator I know and trust. Because I know a firm grip on the original material can be creatively stifling for an adaptation

    It’s a mess. I hate it.

    I’m always fascinated with the aspect of control over your work, though, and how that works both in the monetary context, as well as the work itself. Like, on the one hand, I’d love my work to be successful enough that people want to adapt it - but then, where do I draw the line? How much control do I want to relent? How much is that control worth?

    I’m sure the games can get over the heartbreak with some therapy

    So today I learned the author of the Witcher is suing CD Project Red because they’ve made a crap load of money from a game based on his stuff but only rewarded him with a single payment that amounts to a tiny fraction of the Witcher franchise’s worth. While it was his choice back then, because he doesn’t like games and didn’t believe the project would take off, the law is on his side, as Polish law says that if a party gets remuneration that end up being disproportionate to the gains, then the contract can be renegotiated. Imo he’s totally entitled to the money since he created the thing that let CDPR be successful, plus it’s his right, but of course the gaming press and fandom in general are framing it as you’d expect. Gamers, man

    I’ve beaten PQ, but I don’t have Apocslypse yet. Might get to that someday.

    The first two are definitely good games but like, nothing to lose sleep over It’s taken me a while to change my approach but I feel much happier right now just playing whatever I feel like. Not saying you need to do it or that it will work for anyone, but like, turns out games are much more fun if you play them for fun! Who knew

    Hey, I really don’t care. Maybe the real game I bugged you to play is the friends we made along the way

    I am curious though since I can’t even think of any games I’ve bugged you to play right now. Chalk it up to kind of finctooning on a different plane of existence for the past seven weeks

    Disregard backlogs, man, and just go with the flow Life’s too short to force yourself into entertainment that you don’t feel like at the moment

    Basically. I can kinda understand that, but I personally think it’s extremely important that a series as conscious of its roots as dragon quest exists.

    Oof. Then again, everyone can have their own opinion on anything, so anything goes. I did laugh at the lack of dragons comment. And I get so annoyed with people getting upset over silent protagonists like it’s some relic instead of a valid stylistic choice.

My Top 100's Lost but not Forgotten: Dragon Quest VII

by Wolf Kanno on 10-26-2018 at 06:42 AM

I feel like the year 2001 was an odd year in gaming. One of the first time where you really felt like the end of an era and the beginning of a new one was coming. Sony was gearing up to release the successor to the smash hit PlayStation and if you looked around the gaming scene, it seemed like every company was jumping ship to get on board what the PS2 could do. Square had released their PS1 swan song FFIX even though they would still support the PS1 with

My Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten: Arc the Lad II

by Wolf Kanno on 03-27-2018 at 11:53 PM
You know the drill by now...


One of my all time favorite publishers in the 90s for video games was Working Designs. It was a company that actually tried to get a lot of cool JRPGs released in the West long before the actual JRPG boom in the last years of the decade. I've already spoken about their most high profile title they ever worked on, Lunar: The Silver Star Story,

My Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten: Final Fantasy III

Blah blah blah Top 100 blah blah blah too many good games to list. Blah blah blah, games that weren't good enough for my list but still excellent nonetheless.


Of the Classic series within Final Fantasy, FFIII was the last one for me to play, partly cause I didn't emulate very often and partly because I had hoped SE would come to their senses and re-release this title.

My Top 100's Lost but Not Forgotten: I am Setsuna

by Wolf Kanno on 02-23-2018 at 07:38 AM
So I did my Top 100 last year, and this year, I'm focusing on a few entries that didn't make the cut for one reason or another. I'll start off by saying that most of the games mentioned in this blog series are all worth playing, they simply just haven't enraptured me enough to place them on my List. I started with Demon's Souls, and i have about 24 more entries to go. I know I said it would be like four or five, but giving myself some time to think about it made me realize how many great games I

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

by Wolf Kanno on 01-22-2018 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
