A face on RPG's? I think with a genre that has been widened, crossbred, and evolved over 30 some years in video games, I don't think there is. To me, the distinction of seeing a "JRPG" or just "RPG" in the title puts in preconceived notions of either what I've read about them when first seeing the abbreviation and… » 12/24/14 1:02pm 12/24/14 1:02pm

Early Review...Though Actually Kind of Late

Wow! Haven't posted anything since last year! Two reasons for this 1. Laziness due to gorging out on Holiday food and enjoying presents and family. 2. Have sort of been burnt out on the MMO scene and thus have not logged on much to any of them, SWTOR included. However, when December 3rd did come around, you can bet I… » 1/10/14 3:28pm 1/10/14 3:28pm

Let me say this. With the Lore and story, the whole idea of Elder Scrolls in itself is meant to be a different way of telling the story, leaving it open for the player to essentially make his own story, and do what he wants, and the beauty of it is, the stories provided are what you make it. And the linear stories… » 11/26/13 4:57pm 11/26/13 4:57pm

Why I'm excited about PvP for the Very First Time!

That's right! You guessed it! After almost two years of a head-hanging, frustrating, and disappointing rail-shooter for the space game of a STAR WARS MMO (the caps were for emphasis by the way), Bioware is finally releasing its newest expansion that is an actual, authentic space game where the player has full control… » 11/15/13 6:44pm 11/15/13 6:44pm

I think a big reason it's "unsung" is simply due to the fact a lot of gamers in these last two generations have settled to believe in their minds the only games worth playing are the ones with the most photo-realistic graphics, adult themes where blood spatters everywhere and women are scantily clad with completely… » 10/18/13 2:46pm 10/18/13 2:46pm

This was one of the biggest perks I loved about that console, and a big reason I was glad to have bought it before the other two of the last generation. The shop and online portion was free for starters (no monthly fee just to access an online store or connect to other players) and then their selection of online games… » 10/18/13 2:33pm 10/18/13 2:33pm

I'm not opposed, especially because I do plan on getting one in the near future, and can't wait to pick up Wind Waker HD, and Sunshine HD would be a great addition, especially since I never finished either, but would like the chance to very much! Good post though! Nintendo doesn't get enough love these days. They make… » 10/16/13 5:15pm 10/16/13 5:15pm

The "Dumbing Down of Games"-Were the "Good ol' Days" that Good?

"Well, in the good ol' days, we used to have to run up-hill, both ways, with no IGN or Internet walkthroughs, no tutorials, with three lives and three continues, and no save points, in our barefeet with no uber armor..." and you get the idea. Of course, that's an exaggeration of a combination of old geezer talking… » 10/08/13 1:52pm 10/08/13 1:52pm

Used to, in college, I'd pack my coffee with three packets of sugar, half of the cup with cream (exaggeration) and I'd be good to go. I never liked drinks or food being described as "an aquired taste" until I started needing the black variety at 2AM when I had a term paper due later that morning at 8AM. I've softened… » 10/02/13 12:34pm 10/02/13 12:34pm
