The Best Scarves in Gaming

Nintendo Power Retrospective - Part 12

Etrian Odyssey IV: D-toid contest!

I really dig the Etrian Odyssey series. Not only do I like a good dungeon crawl, but Etrian feeds my near-insatiable lust for... cartography! Any game that includes mapmaking as part of the adventure is aces in my book. I'm really looking...
