    Lol don’t worry. Even I’m starting to think I won’t make it since all the creative energy I have is going into the novel. It’s no biggie if we end up not doing the contest once

    I did hear of the Bloodborne/DS3 comparison tbh. I think it was Yahtzee that mentioned it? He’s a big fanboy of those games. Still, it seems like the best option for you since that’s what you’re craving, but TLG might also be nice to break things up a bit.

    I think so too. As much as I really want to get into FFXII, I am afraid I’ll get burnt out too quick if I go in straight after an open world game. Plus, Bayonetta is a new game for me, and I should choose to play new games more often than just going back to old favorites. That, and the longer I thirst for XII, the better it’ll taste once I finally get to it

    Btw, I’ve set up the Valentines contest, but it isn’t really looking good this time around. Not a single comment, so I’m kinda we won’t get enough entries this time and I’ll have to cancel it.

    I have heard that DS3 is more similar to DS1and Bloodborne, as it was actually directed by Miyazaki again, so it might as well scratch that itch for you!

    Yeah, but while FFXII is the way you say it is, it’s still a time sink. So idk. I have wanted to play Bayonetta for some time too, so I guess I’ll just try that and see how it goes. Apparently it’s only ten hours long, which is really little compared to the other games I play.

    I think the reason I’m tired of Xenoblade and wasn’t of the Witcher 3 was that it just feels like I’m filling out numbers instead of actually organically exploring a world. Every continent has a percentage, every segment on the world map something to do to mark it as complete, there’s so much gear to craft, and every party member has an affinity level to fill. Sure, that’s great for someone who’s really into that, but it feels to me like it’s just more work - unlike the Witcher which just felt like it had so many stories to tell. So yeah, the Witcher has ruined gaming for me. Not to mention XCX relies even more heavily on the MMO formula than the first game.

    Meanwhile, while you ponder what to play next, I’m also having a dilemma. On the one hand, I’m really fired up for FFXII, but the. Again it’s alsi kind of an open world game and it’s big, while I want to focus a bit more on my writing, so maybe something less time consuming like Bayonetta would be better.

    Is this us just getting old?

    Thanks for the tips. I’ll keep them in mind, though I think I’m pretty set on the choices I made, as it’s kind of for the optimal compromise between balanced jobs and character-appropriate combos - for me at least.

    Meanwhile, when it comes to Xenoblade, I’ve decided I’m gonna try and focus on the story for the rest of the game, and maybe come back to the post game someday if I ever feel like it. Better to end it on a high note than just get tired of it. On the plus side, just got the flight module for my Skells!

    So I’ve consulted a bit with Karifi and this is around the job setup I think I want for the game:

    Vaan: Shikari/Foebreaker
    Penelo: Black Mage/Monk
    Balthier: Machinist/White Mage
    Fran: Red Battlemage/Archer
    Basch: Knight/Bushi
    Ashe: Uhlan/Time Battlemage

    Thoughts?

    Still, having read through your commentary as you played the game again, I doubt I’ll have trouble regardless of my choice, since the game has been made so easy.

    So what would you recommend to compliment a Knight? Or a Bushi, since both classes kinda fit Basch for me and I can’t teally decide between them, it would depend on what works with it

    Yeah, I know what you mean. That’s what I meant when I mentioned fanboying though I can’t really decide on how I feel about the order since I have not played XC2, XSIII, and I dropped XSII halfway. But maybe someday I’ll get to that. As for now, I’m on the fence whether I like XC or XCX better. I just beat chapter 9 and on my way to get flight, so I hope that can breathe some new life into the game for me because after a whole weekend of doing almost exclusively side content, as much as I love the game overall, I am starting to feel burnt out (which, as I think I’ve mentioned before, wasn’t the case for me with the Witcher 3, oddly enough, despite me spending a stupid amount of time on that game and I really felt like I could have played more). Chapter 9 has pretty much co firmed my suspicions regarding the twist, and were it not for the fact that I have two more party members to unlock and that I need to keep my levels up, Jd be tempted to just rush the remaining three chapters of the game.

    Meanwhile the Zodiac Age is running nicely, though I won’t be playing yet. I am, however, thinking about job choices, and while I’m pretty set on Archer/Red Battlemage for Fran and Knight/Bushi, I don’t know what order I should go with for them, and I’m not really sure how to handle all the other characters. I guess I’ll see how it goes once I get down to it. I probably won’t be playing it right after X, though, considering open world burnout

    I’ve also just found out a certain generous soul has gifted me the Zodiac Age on Steam

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

Mononoke Hime

by Wolf Kanno on 11-08-2017 at 02:25 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

Fighting Evil by Moonlight...

by Wolf Kanno on 06-14-2016 at 09:21 AM
So tonight I finally broke out a Christmas present I received several years ago that I never watched. Partly because for the first time in a long time, I felt ready for it. I acquired a DVD set that featured the entire DiC dub of the first two seasons of Sailor Moon, so basically the original dub, not the new one. Original Western score, Sailor Says, and the whole "Serena and Darien" name changes.


It was glorious.

Defining Gaming as Art

by Wolf Kanno on 02-23-2016 at 07:49 AM
This was going to have a subtitle, but they all sounded like pretentious academic papers and that kind of goes against the point of all of this.

So recently I began reading a very in-depth article series about two series worked on by one of the more influential game designers/writers in my life, Tetsuya Takahashi. I'll leave it up to Google for you to figure out why. Anyway, it was mostly a really well written and interesting analysis of the works and I actually learn a few things

Neon Lights, Large soda, and a handful of quarters...

by Wolf Kanno on 08-01-2015 at 10:07 AM
So lately I've been reminded of one of my life goals was that I wanted to one day build my own arcade for myself. Get all the games I grew up on and just have a fun little place devoted to letting me play through the classics and relieve the arcade scene I grew up in. I've been discussing this with friends as we try to create a list of the games we would add to the arcade. Of course there would be the classics like Galaga, Gauntlet, Pac-Man, Paperboy, Frogger, and Dig Dug but I also thought about
