A moment of silence for my departed 360. (Shortblog)

Well, after owning a 360 for 2 years and change, the console passed away this afternoon. It boots up to the dash just fine, but freezes when it tries to play games, and red rings when I try to boot it with a game in it. This is rare for m...

What does Lords of Shadow mean for Castlevania?

One of the biggest announcements of E3 so far for me has to be Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, being worked on by Hideo Kojima, responsible for games like Snatcher, Policenauts, Zone of the Enders, oh yeah, and some Metal Gear thing. As far...

 
 
 

FFXIV - The Day After

Well, I'll try to keep introductions to a minimum; that's what the forums are for. I'm Musai; 23 years old, and all you need to know that's relevant for this post is that I love MMOs. In fact, I've played almost all the major ones in the la...
