You wouldn’t think there’s too much in common between a fuzzy-looking N64 falling-block puzzler and an early PlayStation 2 role-playing game, but you’d be wrong! Because those games are Wetrix and Suikoden III, and they are all about ducks. Be it large, humanoid ducks waging war or little floaty rubber ducks bobbing about on the surface of a puzzle field, it is all about ducks this week.
Mmm, duck. Man, suddenly I could go for some Chinese.
Contributor Kirin kicks off the Suikoden series hub page with a 21-paragraph salute to the third game in the series. (Disclaimer: May not be exactly 21 paragraphs.) The hub is bare except for this and that Luca Blight thing from last year, but just you wait until I find time to write a thesis on Suikoden II’s brilliance.
I met the author of this article, wumpwoast, a couple of weeks ago. In very little time one truth became intensely evident: This is a man who really loves Wetrix. I think that wild-eyed enthusiasm comes through clearly in this article. Lock up your daughters.
