    In more positive news, I beat XCX, and while the final battle was weirdly chosen as the place for a big info dump, it was nonetheless interesting and the post-credits scene was the most Xeno-y thing in the whole game. It’s also there pretty much exclusively as a sequel hook. So that’s... a thing!

    I started Bayonetta and while I enjoyed what I played, I couldn’t help but keep thinking “okay now I just have to beat this many chapters before XII”, so I decided that forcing myself to play a game I might enjoy more later now just because is dumb and started the Zodiac Age. I’ve nade it to the Garamsythe Waterway (pre-banquet) and it’s ~amazing~

    So all the Lone Gunmen just died and I don’t think I can deal

    That also sounds good! Hope you have fun

    I feel like I need to fundamentally change how I approach the media I consume tbh. Backlogs really just end up causing more stress when all those things are really just supposed to bring joy to your life. Idk if maybe I shouldn’t just let go of any backlogs and do whatever the hell I feel like at the moment. Like, I owe nothing to those games and books and shows. They can’t own my life.

    That is also a good idea, as I found out! Will you be focusing on writing in that instance?

    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!

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
