    Tactics Ogre is fantastic and I"m happy to hear it inspired you! How far are you in?

    I haven't been doing nearly enough writing, so I'll try to do more today. But then, I also restarted Chrono Trigger - mostly because of your list - and it's so nice. Hope it doesn't totally kill my productivity!

    Who knows But I mean, I think even Sakaguchi himself said FF is for kids and that older fans should just let it go, so maybe I shouldn't worry too much

    We'll see if we'll give Millennium a go. I remember my mom being a huge fan of both the X-Files and Millennium, and I heard the X-Files actually had an episode that served as the finale for Millennium.

    In other news, I'm having this weird epiphany. I've been reading up on some old RPGs that I loved, including Breath of Fire, Xenogears, Chrono Trigger, etc. and... I've come to realize that I really don't care about FF anymore. And it's not really just the uncertain future to come, but for some reason I feel like I've lost my emotional connection with the series somewhere along the way, probably around the time I did the marathon. The only titles that legit bring me joy when I think about them are the Ivalice games, and maybe VI. The rest doesn't really seem to do it for me anymore. And now I wonder if this is just a temporary crisis or have I just... grown out of it?

    Yeah, we recently had a conversation at work about how back in the day, there was really nohinglike it and how the tv show lineup is now flooded with things that are derivative of it but just cant really capture that magic. I see it as a product of its time that has had a huge influence on pop culture, redefining how we take in our media, and its really hard to replicate that effecf

    So in X-Files matters, we've reached season five (just watched 'Post-Modern Prometheus') and I have to say, the thing I probably love the most about the X-Files is that it really never treats itself too seriously - there's always room for making fun of itself and redefining what it is. It's as serious as it needs to be in the myth arc episodes, which are mostly good for it, but probably my favorite monster of the week episodes are the ones with humor in it (or the really smurfed up ones). The ones that are just super serious and not really out there (most of the ones focusing on 'Nam vets, and there have been quite a few now, actually) always feel like kind of the wasted opportunity. It's when the series goes tongue in cheek that I feel really at home. Episodes like 'Humbug', 'Clyde Buckman's Final Repose', 'War of the Coprophages', 'Jose Chung's From Outer Space', 'Small Potatoes' and, most recently to me, 'Post-Modern Prometheus just make me feel that I really love this show and am so glad it's part of my life now. And there's a similar vibe in even slightly more sinister episodes like 'Syzygy', 'Quagmire' and 'Detour'. It's those little bits of humor, wit, and incredible chemistry between the two leads that makes this show really worthwhile.

    Both the wife and I are so glad we got into this series.

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

by Wolf Kanno on 03-07-2018 at 09:10 PM
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
