On Finally Getting a Wii, GTA IV, and Why Street Fighter The Movie: The Game isn't that bad.

I'm going home and controlling some Kylie Minogue! Take that, Oscar winner Raul Julia! So, I did it. I went and bought a Wii. It looked like I wasn't even going to get one, what with the six I saw at the "Real Canadian Supe...   read

On Shield Bashing, No Gay Bashing, and Sneaking in Metal Gear Solid Online. Also, GTAIVPS3VS360.

Alright, alright, I admit it: I was rather glib in my initial impressions of the Metal Gear Solid Online Beta. After some more time with that game, my heart has warmed to it. Especially since it has added one new feature, ...   read

Are you getting better or worse at games as you get older?

We're getting older. One day, before you know it, you'll be walking by O'Douls pub on Granville street, and see kids with their Fallout Boy haircuts and, for some reason, see that half of them are dressed like zombies, and yo...   read

My second attempt at keeping a log on my progress with the giant pile of JRPGs that I'm working through. As you can see, I only tackled two of the games on my list, although I probably should note that you could also add Gold...   read

Hey stores. Take my money. Take it. Aw, to hell with you.

It's April, and I've got a hundred bucks put away for my gaming habit this month. I haven't bought much in the past few months, what with getting the SNES and all, the sole exception being Chrono Trigger. So I went out sho...   read

You know you hate them: stealth sections in non-stealth games.

Ah, Stealth. You can thank Metal Gear Solid and Tenchu for bringing this ubiquitous gameplay mechanic into popular attention. Although games like Airborne Ranger and the original Metal Gear had toyed with this mechanic in the...   read

You know you hate them: terrible rhythm minigames.

You know you hate them. The little things that designers feel they must throw into games. Frequently it's because everyone else is doing it. Because PR people or focus testers ask for them. Or because their games are too damn...   read

My Week in JRPGs - March 9-16

After not playing JRPGs for a few years, I've been getting back into them in full force. I figured that, somewhat inspired by ZargonX, I should log my attempt to hack my way through these games. Unfortunately, as I'm not play...   read

Name Entry Screens: Spawn of Satan, Or Pathway to Creative Bliss?

I can't resist it. Every time an RPG offers me the chance to rename one of their precious characters, I have to go for it. I admit it. I usually break the narrative of the game with either random, bizarre, or knowingly idioti...   read
