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...


It's been a while

School and life has kept me from posting, but not from lurking over the past year or so. I am in the last stretch of my college education, and it's taken an interesting turn. One of my summer classes is a course on post modernism on the scr...


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...


TOP 7 Obscure games that ROCK.

Hello everyone. This is my first post. My information is right there on the right so, let's cut to the chase. I've been thinking for a while about what to write first, and as much as I have a few ideas for posts I really wanna write next, t...


RexwolfTrivia is back!

Hey, it's been a while since I've posted trivia, hasn't it? (The answer is yes.) Anyway, the battle for the blog is back, and let's go over the rules, shall we? First to answer wins a point. Google is allowed. First to five gets to send ...


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?

I have been playing the Final Fantasy IV Complete on the journey to and from work the last couple of weeks. I have been struck by this screen appearing every time I start and particularly the game noting that "Game progress will not b...


RPG of the Year - 2001

Back by popular demand that I just happened to find under the sofa, I present yet another GoTY article! This was a tough year. I mean, REALLY tough. It's bad when you've played half the games on the list and LOVED them. Yeah, THAT bad. ...


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

I should've taken a picture of this years ago. This is actually the second one I've made. The first one fell out of my pocket as I rode my bike to work. I went looking for it. I found it had been crushed by an automobile. This phone is ...


Conkers Bad Fur Day (10 years latter)

Rare, or Rareware, the developer that created Conkers Bad Fur Day was in this trend of creating these incredibly vibrant adventure games. All of which were successful. Rare continued the trend of making these kinds of colourful adventure ...


Best System Evar: GAMEBOY COLOR.

If there were ever a sentence that I never thought I'd say, it would be the title of this article. I mean it! I'm a console gamer at heart. I've loved my Playstation since it took over my life at age 7, and my love for the console game w...


Brushing the Dust Off of Old Adventures

Original Post at Experience Points There just isn't anything quite like pulling an old game out from your collection and loading it up for the first time in years. The familiar sights and sounds from yesteryear tickle your senses and half...


Have you seen these Super Mario Bros. candy tins???

Maybe you have, but I just wanted to take some cool pictures :-) I did a double take when I saw these at the checkout in Bed, Bath & Beyond of all places. At first glance I thought they were cheap knockoffs-- but they are actually really...


Dear gaming gods: Please resurrect me!

I was always fond of the PC and console gaming heyday of my youth. I remember yearning for those constant chills and thrills, knowing that certain characters and games were going to stick with me for a long time to come... if not forever....


Forgotten Gems: North & South

This image just screams "historical accuracy." Back in the NES days I didn't have my own system so all of my gaming was done at other, luckier kids' houses. Since my friends didn't want to sit there for hours while I played "The Legend o...
