    Yup. It’s definitely rewarding. It also makes me happy because I’m rewarded for liking to experience a series in order, no matter how “outdated” people claim it is.

    Also, apparently all referenced to Soulless Army only happen if you import a save file. So if you start from the second game, it will mostly just be a separate story.

    Yeah, and there’s apparently a list of demons that, if you had them in 1, will just join you right away when you encounter them. I got Poltergeist and Obariyon this way.

    As for the vendor trash, you get one for just having a save file from Raidou 1, one for it being a clear game, and one for having at least 60% of your demon compendium, so it pays to look out for that

    I can see that and I’m happy with most of the changes. Raidou runs faster both in and out of battle, you can access the Gouma-Den from any save point now, and the healing spring is much cheaper (not that it makes a difference to me since importing my save file has awarded me some very expensive vendor trash and I got to start the game with around 40k yen.

    Ok so it’s pretty cool so far, the battles are more dynamic but also more chaotic as a result, so I need to pay more attention. One thing that’s a bit iffy for me right now is that, while the original game struck a great balance between explaining things and leaving stuff for you to infer, Raidou 2 really doesn’t want you to lose track of what’s going on. The prologue looks pretty much the same as in the first game but this time you get a super detailed description of what being a Kuzunoha means, who Gouto is - despite the fact that I already knew all this from the first game, and that game didn’t feel the need to bombard me with essays on those things. And now in the story proper it looks like every little bit of an exchanges is later summarized to you by Gouto - so that you don’t miss the detail that Narumi just got a pile of butter on his pants.

    But I hope it’s just an early game thing and the game will soon start treating me with the respect I deserve. Lucifer shows up pretty much right away, so that’s cool stuff. He looks very handsome in his ‘20s getup and is being very cryptic and mysterious

    I heard it’s interesting because alignment isn’t a world-changing thing in this game, rather you just get to decide Raidou’s personal workdview

    I’ve heard conflicting things about the story. Some say it isn’t as crazy as the first one, but then some people say it’s darker with a stronger presence of mainline elements. Also, alignments! Yay!

    Here’s hoping Raidou 2 is at least as good in that regard. I hear people praising the battle system a lot.

    Well we’ll see how it goes. Anything for my fledgling spawn.

    Btw, beat Raidou 1 yesterday. The final dungeon was kinda dumb, mostly since it made you replay pretty much every boss battle in the game (including the insanely annoying Mishaguji), and the final boss was no slouch either, but I made it. Overall, great game, very unique even by SMT standards

    Of course not. This is all probably a good thing since right now I should end up making more money, whether I stay at my current job or thanks the new one. But change is always stressful

    Well looks like my focus is about to be broken as well because I got a call back from a job interview and I’m gonna need to seriously consider my options. Change is coming

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

by Wolf Kanno on 03-27-2018 at 10:53 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 08:10 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 06:38 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 03:23 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 01:25 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
