First Impressions: Europa Universalis IV

I'm a long-time fan of Paradox's games.  Ever since I discovered Europa Univeralis (EU hereafter) 2 about 11- years ago, I've been obsessed.  I've shoveled time into the likes of Victoria, Victoria 2, CK2, and EU3.  So, as a long-time fan o...

 
 
 

The Roots of Japanese Strategy RPGs

The following piece is neither thorough nor polished. Essentially, over at Brad Hates Games, there was some discussion about the importance of Shining Force for the Japanese strategy RPG genre. I argued that Fire Emblem was more central (...

 
 
 
 

Final Rankasy 3: Electric Bugalee

I ran out of silly titles for this series. Whatcha gonna do, y'know? So, to recap, I am ranking the Final Fantasy mainline games, except for side-games, 11, 14, and, for no good reason at all, 13. Up until now, the rankings have been as ...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A few statements about Civ 5

I've read the RPS and Joystiq reviews, as well as some of the other chatter happening around the tubes, and I've come to the conclusion that there are a lot of misnomers out there about Civ 5's mechanics and its impact on the franchise. Wi...

 
 
 

Initial Thoughts on Endless Space (PC, 4x/Strategy)

So, as I mentioned might happen in my post about Warlock, I broke down and bought Endless Space. For the unaware, Endless Space is the first game from Amplitude. Amplitude is a new, independent PC game developer focused on increasing cust...

 
 
 
 

Initial Thoughts on Warlock: Master of the Arcane

I know there aren't many PC gamers on Dtoid, but I figured I'd add my thoughts on this game anyway. Let's see how it goes. If you aren't aware, Warlock: Master of the Arcane (simply Warlock from here on) is a 4x game that borrows heavily ...

 
 
 

Why Jim Sterling Is Wrong on 'Online Passes'

I'm so sick and tired of the ignorance that pervades this site when it comes to the used game market and online passes. It seems like once a week or so, Jim launches some big tirade against online passes or in favor of the used game market...

 
 
 

Revisited Gems - Langrisser Series

I don't know. I'm considering doing a series on great games that are generally overlooked. I decided that, if I'm going to start anywhere, I'll start with the Langrisser series. Revisited Gem #1 - Langrisser Series For - Fans of Strategy...

 
 

About killias2one of us since 10:58 PM on 06.03.2008

Favorite Games:

Mega Man series (This includes the Original Sub-Series and the X Sub-Series. I have no interest in any of the EXE/Network games, and I have little experience with Zero and ZX. Zero and ZX seem cool, but I just haven't played them that much yet.)
Zelda series
Final Fantasy series (2j, 8, and 12 are terrible though. No interest in 11 or the Crystal Chronicles Sub-Series)
Starcraft (!) (stay tuned for SC2!)
Warcraft series (Yes I played WoW for a while, but I prefer the RTS's)
Super Mario series (this includes all the Mario side-games like Kart, Tennis, Smash Bros.)
Paradox Grand Strategy Series (Europa Universalis, Hearts of Iron, Crusader Kings, VICTORIA, etc.)
Civilization series
Galactic Civilizations 2 (and expansions)
Total War series (I'm still divided on the last two though. They seemed so much more.. arcade-y than STW and MTW)
Street Fighter series (especially Street Fighter Alpha 3)
Castlevania series (but not the 3d ones.. they're all terrible)
Ninja Gaiden (The NES ones! The new ones are good too, though!)

Basically, I like strategy games, some fighting games, RPG's, and old school platformers. I like JRPG's less and less though. I play some FPS's, but I wouldn't say any of them are favorites of mine.

Other games I play often:
Devil May Cry series
Guilty Gear series
Time Crisis (I actually own TC 1, 2, 3, and Crisis Zone for the PS/PS2)
Shinobi series
God of War (Only played the first, but I'm guessing the others are sweet too)
Streets of Rage series (Where is a modern beat'em'up when you need one?)
