As this Season wraps up, I find myself looking back at the Forsaken expansion and ruminating on what it did, what it tried to do, and where it could have done better.
I was one of the early adapters. I bought Anthem on pre-order, I played the Beta. I was lucky in that I didn’t have any of the hard crashes or significant glitches that others had experienced but the game was still a little rough. It was fun, though.
Final Fantasy VII is one of my favorite games of all time. I could write a long article about why and how, but suffice it to say, after I'd played it, I could not have been more eager for Final Fantasy VIII. Imagine my surprise when that wasn't the next game in the Final Fantasy... Continue Reading →
Now, some people are doubtless going to argue with me on this one. I hear you. Milon's Secret Castle . . . a windfall? I never beat this game. I never even came close. It was way too hard. I didn't know anyone that even had the game, and those of my friends brave enough... Continue Reading →

YES!!!). Arch-tempered Kirin has come and gone-- don't worry, he'll be back-- and until December 27th, we get to take a crack at... Continue Reading →
Well, here we are! I've mostly tended to be very accurate in this story to the Nintendo game Dragon Warrior, but Gwaelin's homecoming is finally where I fudged a little bit. I mean, carrying her right into the throne room, filthy and disheveled? How undignified! I think no one will mind a little added romance.... Continue Reading →
Whether you are new to the series or just jumped aboard since the latest game, Monster Hunter is a game that requires both skill and patience. Yes, there is a grind involved for gear.
