RPG Mish Mash Impressions.

I've been plugging away at a few RPGs recently and my impressions are: Lost Odyssey This is the first game in history I have restarted just so I can see the opening again. Fantastic and beautiful. I'm only about two hours in so no final j...

 
 
 

What do we do with broken Megadrive?

The title was meant to be a reference to a crappy sea shanty, so no wonder it turned out crap. Anyway, trying to resurrect some childhood memories I bought a Megadrive off ebay for 9.50AU. The guy said that he didn't have any games for it s...

 
 
 

DDS 1

Finally finished DDS part 1 last night after spending about six hours on the final dungeon. Finishing that game almost killed me though the last boss was surprising easy. The whole finale was beautiful and really got me right here (points...

Unattracted to Ico

I'd heard so much about this game so I picked it up two years back. I'm a huge fan of cult hits so I figured I would like it however I just don't get the attraction to this game. One guy said that in order to like it you have to want to be ...

Guitar Vader

A few years ago when my friends and I were undergrads we were in the process of recording an LP. It took about three months and over that time we gave the Dreamcast a lot of love ( I think the Gamecube had just come out at that time) main...

 
 
 

Games with a slow start but a fantastic finish.

I recently finished Suikoden V. I'd played through the first several hours a few times and had never gotten into it. The game has the sloooooooooooooooooowest start but it snowballs and builds to the greatest RPG story I've experienced. For...

About geoffuwsone of us since 6:53 PM on 08.07.2007

Much to my family's disappointment after I got my Psych degree I moved into journalism. At the moment I do games and anime reviews for a free magazine in Sydney which no one reads. I also work casually as a research assistant but that isn't interesting.
I've been gaming since I was a wee lad and as I recall the first console I had was the Atari 2600. Pitfall 2 on the C64 amazed me and at the time I thought it was the deepest games would ever get.

I'm a big SRPG/RPG fan but I also have an itchy trigger finger so FPSes are on the cards to.
I have a weak spot for survival horror but I suck at them. The newer survival horror action games (RE4) are right up my alley.
Also big fan of Clover studios and Capcom in general.

Right now I've got a 360, Ps2, Saturn, cube(for imports) and Wii set up and I've also got a PSP & DS.
