The grand finals and other notable moments

Yeah...fuck the NES Castlevanias! Think I'll skip straight to Symphony of the Night.

No more heroes. Wii or PS3 version?

Thanks for that Mother 4 article yesterday I've been listening to nothing but GBA-era soundtracks, truly my golden years of gaming.

If you stop to think about it, Thanksgiving is basically #Darksiders2: The Holiday.

Your daily reminder that my band can beat up your band.

Hoping more character customization options come of the next Smash-centric Nintendo Direct. Playing as Wrong-Hair, Wrong-Face Robin feels weird. Female Robin Amiibo, too. And let 3DS users download the whole OST. My wishes are reasonable, I think.

What's the most outrageous thing you could ask for this Annual Festive Gift-Giving Holiday?

Threshold's last album, For the Journey is so goddamn solid. Progressive metal at it's finest.

If you're looking for some epic metal you should most certainly look to power metal. If there was truly a genre to describe as epic, it's that one. Theatre of Tragedy is oldschool, if you want something similar look into Tristania.

Community Question: With Hideki Kamiya asking fans which Capcom franchise that he created they would like to see him make a sequel to, what is another series you would like to see its original creator return to and take over the reins?

Valkyria: Azure Revolution will have permadeath. Y-yay?

Mom tells me not to ask for nothing for Christmas again. Etrian Odyssey 4, Untold 1, and Etrian Mystery Dungeon it is then. My wife and I are already antisocial as is, I think this may be the final step to becoming a full blown hermit.

Hm...One of my blog posts disappeared. It says (HIDDEN) in the blog manager, but I can't seem to get it live. What's up?

This is gothic metal and I don't want to know what she's singing because it's epic AF. Yep, I'm ignoring the lyrics altogether. Not gonna peek at all. [youtube][/youtube]

Why cruel god do I want to play Valkyria Chronicles over Fallout 4?

Started a new game in Persona 4 Golden after finishing Dancing All Night(which probably was inevitable) and man, that game really needs a "Skip to actual gameplay" function.
