I made a Board Game + Contest

As this post goes live, I have spent the past 2 months buried in Sketchbook Pro, 8 hours cutting tiles, Countless many hours nervously pouring my soul into a project that will follow me to Origins Game Fair in Columbus, Ohio this week. T...

 
 
 
 

RPG of the Year - 2006

Holy shit damn, what a huge year! 57 games! And yes, there was a Sega Genesis game released this year. This is also one of those awkward years where a lot of developers were jumping to the new systems while other ones were still very uns...

 
 
 
 

RPG of the Year - 2005

Now, at first glance, this seems like a huge year. After all, there are 50 games! This was certainly a strong year for RPGs in that there were a LOT, but not so much in terms of quality. I'm confident in my top 5, but the runner ups...oh...

 
 
 
 
 
 

RPG of the Year - 2004

You think last year was a big year? Ha ha ha! This year, there are 49 games! Madness! Let's do this thang! #5 - Fable (Xbox) Let's get the obvious out of the way. Yes, it's very short. No, it didn't quite live up to everything Mol...

 
 
 
 

RPG of the Year - 2003

This is a HUGE year. There are 45 games! This is also the first year we're seeing a mobile game on the list. While you'd think this would make it hard for me to choose, just a simple glance at this list and I can already tell what's what...

RPG of the Year - 2002

This was a surprisingly dry year, at least compared to last year. There are only 18 games this time and sadly, not all of them are great. Let's hop into it! #5 - Elder Scrolls 3 - Morrowind (PC) ...I am not a fan of this game. And ye...

 
 
 
 

Old School Games: Dragon Warrior III

On the internet I've found that I'm not the only guy who likes Dragon Warrior, which we now know by their original title Dragon Quest. I'm resistant of that title change, which occasionally annoys many fans of the series. One of my discu...

 
 
 
 

Can game mechanics spoil us?

RPG of the Year - 2001

Dark Void Zero is friggin' hard!

I've been playing Dark Void Zero lately. I managed to find a use for my PS3 controller and mapped the buttons to keys on my keyboard so I could use it to play DVZ but gadzooks is it difficult! I've played it for 3 hours collectively and I s...

NES controller phone case

Dear gaming gods: Please resurrect me!

Forgotten Gems: North & South

Something about gaming magazines.

Man, remember when we used to read gaming magazines? Maybe you don't, but I do. A few days ago, while I was on my way to give a friend an old Xbox DVD remote I wasn't using, I had picked up three old gaming magazines for $5 at a Goodwill: ...
