    Was it really so much to ask for FFXII to be on the Vita as well?

    Can't wait to play that myself. Though who knows when that will be...

    So I started this Polish game, Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs. It's a Tactical JRPG with a gorgeous, super cute art style, and from the looks of it, it's not serious in the slightlest. It's pretty self-aware as an RPG and has tons of shout outs (like, once you're given food and your three responses are quoted verbatim from the scene in FFVII where Cloud eats stuff at the Wall Market), and it's nice to play something that's just not seriously at all for a change.

    Some cool things I noted:
    - It has a social link-like mechanic, with characters giving you specific benefits for ranking up their friendships. And a calendar system, so you're constantly on a timer, and have to fulfil quests within a timer to progress. So time management is a factor. Taking inspiration from a good place, tbh.
    - There's a town building segment right from the start and it ties heavily into that timer mechanic I mentioned.
    - Apparently, there's no such thing as individual levels in this game - there's only a party level, so no characters will get left behind, ever. I imagine this can help reduce grinding.
    - Also, apparently there's no healing during battles and the only way you can really mitigate damage from enemies is by employing shields that kind of give you an additional pool of HP over your regular HP.

    So far so good, and I'm fairly hooked. We'll see how good it is in the end.

    Thank you, dude. Much appreciated.

    I'll probably give it a shot, but I need a little break for now. Wouldn't want it to get stale.

    But yeah, playing it now, I really don't get the criticism the D-Counter gets. Honestly, I felt I could have won all those battles even without using the dragon form, but I just wanted to get it over with faster.

    So I finished the first fresh run of Dragon Quarte. I'm a but sad that I managed to onoy marginally increase my D-ratio. Going crazy with the dragon form from the Centre onwards was all kinds of fun.

    It's a short game, thankfully. But one that I really loved. The demon loyalty mechanic is fantastic, imo. ALso, I like how they handle alignment - mechanically, that is, because there is no story alignment, whcih is fine

    Yeah, I liked that about SQQ too! Glad to hear it was a cool experience for you regardless of all the dumb stuff that happened along the way

    And yeah, I definitely love the Devil Summoner subseries and wish we had more of it. Too bad we'll most likely never see a Western release of the first game. At least I still have the Raidou games to look forward to!

    I really like they fact that they didnt change too much - all the cutscenes, for example, are retain in their corny 90s glory of literally surfing through the Internet. In some ways it does give me an X-Files vibe, even if only with the atmosphere of the lighter episodes

    Btw, please do yourself a favor and tell Spooky (I think it was Spooky) that you think Hitomi is sexy.

    And how did finishing P1 feel?

    I think I've mentioned this to you but haven't linked it

    So basically this is the thing where Lindsay Ellis and some friends banded up to write a very collaborative stealth parody of YA paranormal romance novels. In the end, they made the book basically Twilight with Cthulhu. The episodes in this series are very short and I highly recommend you watch them since just seeing the process of this brainstorming and how the concept evolves is hilarious. Also, just mocking everything about Twilight etc. Ooh, and later it becomes a book club of sorts, so that's cool

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
