I have found the greatest RPG character of all time.

Look at this guy. I'm not even an hour into Covenant of Solitude, and I am floored. Not because the game itself is that great (it seems pretty mediocre so far), but because little did I expect to see the classiest ...   0

Random battles aren't bad, they're just misunderstood.

Image Source: Kotaku If you ask just about anyone what they hate the most about old school style jRPGs, there's a very high chance they'll say "random battles." It's an idea that has been parodied to death and has been the...   0

December is the month I go somber (99% NVGR)

Ever since I started blogging here around the beginning of the year, I've been thinking I should keep away from talking about personal drama or struggles for the sake of my own (joyful)sanity. For this month, I think it's fo...   0

The Stanley Parable's Noncontroversial Controversy

Look, I get it, the reasoning for those images being changed in The Stanley Parable is a bit silly. I haven't played the game myself, and I hope to change that when I have a little bit more spare change, but I get why the i...   0

3 StreetPass Games that Need to be Made

The 3DS StreetPass games aren't great because they’re deep games. They’re great because they’re accessible versions of occasionally obtuse genres that are designed for short bursts. I’m not sure if the StreetPass games hav...   0
