Savestate: Rend the Storm (Demon's Souls)

Save State: 'Car'mic Revenge (Saints Row 2)

Save State: Tiamat's Bridge (Final Fantasy 1)

It is strange for me to think that for anyone slightly older than I am, every game was something that they got to experience - something new, but something within memory. †For everyone younger, games as we know them were so...   read

Save State: An Assassin Takes Any Job (Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance)

Ah, the strategy RPG. Is there any genre thatís more in need of love? I highly doubt it. Whereas the current video game industry eats up any First Person Shooter, Western RPG or just straight-up Action game, the SRPG remain...   read
