5 Things I Hate About Skyrim

Skyrim has hit most gamers' Game of the Year for 2011, if not their personal top 10 list. In saying that, I must admit it's one of the finest games I've ever played. There are a few problems, however, that could have been...   read

FPS of the Year 2003

This is going to be an interesting year. There are 40 games this year. This is going to be an odd year because prior to this writing, I've only played two of these. Let's hop to it! Call of Duty (PC) Well, what can you...   read

Location: Mode 7 Madness

I know they're a bit dated now, but mode 7 and raster effects were pretty impressive effects in the 16-bit era. Most of the time all a game had to do was have a generic mode 7 effect and suddenly it become 500 times more a...   read

The Fantastic World of Japanese Games - Episode 5

Sometimes the mere mentioning that a game had RPG elements was enough to shelf the idea to bring it over. You're going to see me pulling this excuse a lot because for every Mega Man, Castlevania, TMNT, Mario, Zelda, and wh...   read

Predictions: I Don't (And Can't) Give A Shit

Early in 2011, my 360 decided to throw a big "fuck you" party and go down for good. Being that this is the brokest I've been in years, I couldn't very well replace it, even though I really want to, but specifically only so...   read

The Fantastic World Of Japanese Games - Episode 4

Sometimes a game is deemed "too weird" to come to American soil. This doesn't happen all the time and usually when it does, it's for good reason. I mean, I guess so. I've decided to include youtube embeds on all the game...   read

Stupid Shit Non-Gamers Say About Videogames

Above: not really a gamer. Playing videogames isn't quite the same as it used to be, but maybe that's a good thing. People that don't game at all that happen to stumble across our hobby seem to mistake videogames for an a...   read

FPS of the Year - 2002

This was a great year, but it was hard to select a #1. There are 32 games this year and many of them I would highly recommend...with one I'd say just avoid altogether and try to forget it even exists. Let's hop right in! 0...   read

The Fantastic World of Japanese Games - Episode 3

Far too often a game simply won't be released in America because...well, it's predecessor failed. Now for me, this is never acceptable, but I do understand. If a game has a huge following in Japan AND it's an RPG, but it ...   read

The Fantastic World of Japanese Games - Episode 2

When playing Japanese SNES games on an emulator, often there are obvious and not so obvious reasons why a game may not have come out to America. The best way to think about it is was it an RPG, did it have suggestive theme...   read

The Fantastic World Of Japanese Games - Episode 1

People who understand emulation, even to a small degree, know all about the fantastic world of translated games that never left Japan. Most of the time it was for reasons like RPGs not selling well in America at the time, ...   read
