So Who is Cloud Strife, Really?

Full disclosure: I didn’t see the recent Nintendo Direct live, so I heard about the biggest headline indirectly thanks to my brother and his phone. He had me guess who the new Smash Bros. character was, and my first (and o...   0

Dreams Don’t Die (AKA Voltech the Sellout)

Who Do You Want to Play As?

So a few months after everyone else plowed through it, I (finally) started playing The Witcher 3 -- and believe it or not, I actually like it. I like the exploration, I like the combat, I suspect I have the potential to deve...   0

DmC: Devil May Cry (feat. Kamen Rider Kiva)

Even though I haven’t played the previous game, there was something about Rise of the Tomb Raider that caught my interest. The announcement trailer showed off a Lara Croft in therapy -- which makes sense, given what she we...   0

No Notion of Good or Bad

I’m one of those strange and possibly terrible people who thinks that The Simpsons is still funny.  In my defense, I don’t think it’s laugh-out-loud or roll-on-the-floor funny, but for me the show has ...   0

Street Fighter V: Headcanon Edition

Not to play armchair tactician, but there’s a part of me that feels like it’s wrong for Daigo “The Beast” Umehara to play anyone but Ryu.  I’m not about to go doubting his skills or anythin...   0

Splatoon is secretly brilliant.

I wonder how much of Splatoon’s success comes from the proliferation of memes.  I mean, it’s been a top image gallery over on Know Your Meme for months now, and the phrase “you’re a kid now, you&...   0

Bayonetta 2 is secretly brilliant.

In the first fifteen seconds of the game, you’re treated to a slow-motion shot of Bayonetta that -- of course -- pans straight down to her crotch.  Barely a minute later, you’re commandeering and piloti...   0

Do We Need Final Fantasy Anymore?

But first, a preliminary question: how relevant is Final Fantasy Type-0? I admit I haven’t been looking around all that much to gauge responses, but my guess -- or maybe fear -- is that people have chosen to ignor...   0

Of Dragon Age and Bunches of Jokers
