    The stuff I sent you was from the project I abandoned for now I've actually told you pretty much nothing about this new project. I'm even considering telling you nothing until I send ykou the completed draft for beta reading

    Cool! Law orchaos?

    Sounds interesting. Can't wait to see how it plays out. So I take that its more like Tactics Ogre than FFT in that regard where the stones eventually overtook the story, while TO basically meeps it purely pplitical.

    Its actually pretty hard for me to describe the fantasy component of my thingwithout going intoore detail, so let me just say that magic used to be more abundant in the past, has ben commodified and is basicaoly a science now but isweaker, butsomething is causing it to come back to its former level. And that's kind of the surface of hhe main plot, but we'll see where that goes

    Sounds like a solid basis for a good plot. Are you planning on integrating any overt fantasy elements, or just leave it more about the historical side of things?

    I'm currently looking into some non-European history since I kind of want to make the story less conventional by having a setting not be inspired by Medieval Europe (and yet I still kinda consider it high fantasy? It's weird). Also, lots of myths and religion. I also have a character kinda sorta based on Nicholas II Romanov, who's also kind of the opposite of him at the same time? It's weird.

    But yeah, I can see a lot of Tactics Ogre, FFXII, and other influences in the story I have in my mind for now as well. Also, Xenogears, which I only noticed later on. But still, I've really only just started and think the story will change to the degree that the inspiration might not be visible unless you're looking for it. Hell, I'd say it's pretty different already.

    I'm kind of envious of the fact that you could successfully study history, tbh. Like I said, I love reading and hearing about it and I think it's super important. I just wish I actually had the opportunity to take it in properly back when I was still at a young and malleable age.

    But I definitely won't let my lack of historical knowledge stop me. I'll research what I need, but in the end, I don't want my faithfulness (or lack thereof) to real life history to hamper the story I'm trying to write.

    I did decide to take a leaf out of his book by inspiring parts of the stories on real life historical events. It's been an interesting brainstorming session, to say the least, considering history has always been one of my weakest subjects. Mostly because my elementary school teacher killed all my enthusiasm in the subject by humiliating me in front of the whole class. Which is a real shame because when I do get down to it, I love history, but learning it has always been a horrendous experience.

    But still, it's just fantasy

    Now that I hink about it, my thing has some Matsuno ish aspects as well. No surprizes here i guess

    Yeah the PSP battery life sucos. Though the Vita's is better, its still much weaker than the 3DS XL's. And ven that really has nohing on my ds lite which isjust a beast when it comes to battery life.

    And I get you. Im not playing P2EP roght nowsimply because im not in a megaten mood atthe moment, but still plan to return to it. Matsuno moods are the best kind though.

    Also, managed to write a significant amount today! woo!

    Tactics Ogre is definitely one of those games I think about coming back to one day, just to see everything it has to offer because I didn't have the energy to do it all at once. It's still fantastic how the PSP version made so much of the content more accessible.

    Speaking of SRPGs, I was going to say Regalia is a good game for you if you ever want tot get back into the genre since it's actaully pretty short for the genre standards and that's really refreshing. But since you're back into the genre with Tactics Ogre, I guess that's a moot point

    btw have you seen this?

    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!

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
