The art of Speedrunning: A viewer's approach

Do you remember the first speedrun you ever watched? Mine was Quake Done 100% Quick, a delightful and bloody romp through Quake on it's hardest difficulty setting, with every kill and every secret found, in a faster time than I could get t...


The Legacy of Squaresoft: A series on long hiatus

Greetings all, this is my first post, so I will try to make it as worthy as possible. Forgive me if this has been reiterated time and time again, but I figured it would be right to discuss a series that has forever been one of my favorites...


About Novalonone of us since 12:20 PM on 08.19.2007

I'm too cheap to play MMORPGs, so that's out.
I've played every Final Fantasy but XI, for previously mentioned reasons.

I love button mashers, shmups, action games, old school FPS, and certain RPGs hold a special place in my line up.

The greatest part of my collection? Definitely my Chrono Trigger cartridge. Super Mario RPG falls somewhere close, unfortunately I got into RPGs late, so I only own FF4 in disc form, though that will certainly change for the DS release.

I do not own Symphony of the Night, but I hail it as one of the best hybrid side scrolling RPGs that I've played to date. Richter is awesome in the right hands, but Alucard is always powerful.

I enjoyed Kingdom Hearts, not for the story, but because it combined several forms of the games that I like. There's even a shmup, though it's hardly challenging. I would like Final Mix+ to come to the states, but I'm not holding my breath for it.

I also have a long list of games that I've never finished, notable ones are:

Apollo Justice
Final Fantasy 8
Suikoden IV
Suikoden V
Dragon Quest VIII
Valkyrie Profile
Warcraft 3
Final Fantasy III
and many more...
