I haven't been able to post in a while, as I've been busy with work and making life altering choices on my career recently. However, that doesn't mean I can't take time out to wish this community and Niero a happy birthday. So thank you...

Fun Retro Findings

I was out not too long ago visiting some local retro video game stores in my neighborhood. Yes I am very fortunate that within walking distance of my apartment in Los Angeles, I live near two stores that sell retro games. My fiance and I ...

Awesomely Underrated: E3 Edition

I’ve decided to bring back the Awesomely Underrated, but this time the rules are slightly different. This time I want to talk about games that caught my eye from all the E3 coverage that may not have received the attention they deserved....

 
 
 
 

Voice Acting in Video Games

Voice acting has become a standard in video games. Much like the evolution from silence to talkies in film, we see the same jump in video games. We no longer need to read words on the screen. We can hear it, assimilate it, and enjoy it l...

 
 
 

New RPG for the "DO WANT" pile: Avalon Code

I found this news interesting on RPGLand, a site that is slowly becoming one of my new favorite places to get RPG news. Both this place and IGN have announced a new game for the DS, Avalon Code. Why would one care about this game? Bec...

 
 
 

Examining the Many Layers of Rydia

(The above picture is strangely fitting) I was on the bus yesterday talking with Zero, about the evolution of character development in video games over the years. The topic of Final Fantasy IV was brought up in discussion. I know, surpr...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The sad state of JRPG's in the US

(I'll try not to fangirl all over this rant. I promise. This is also not meant to sound eloquent. This is a rant after-all.) Something has been bugging me a lot in the last few months. In fact this has bugged me ever since Blue Drago...

 
 
 
 

Completing Video Games

This is me thinking out load instead of sleeping. But I have wondered what others have thought about the following topic... I've spent the last eight years griping about my gaming backlog. I always have about a dozen games on my shelf ...

 
 
 

Awesomely Underrated #3: Wild Arms

(awesome wallpaper is awesome) (Naia apologizes for the lack of Awesomely Underrated last week. She spent all last week getting ready to and finally move to a bigger apartment. She's still living in boxes.) I make it no secret that I...

 
 
 

Awesomely Underrated #2: Mega Man Powered Up

Due to demand (okay Chad suggested it) I will continue giving love to underrated games that most gamers don't play but should. I skimmed through my library thinking about what game to talk about next. While the game for today isn't nece...

 
 
 

Awesomely Underrated #1: Elebits

I've added a new segment to my blog called " Awesomely Underrated." I want to talk about games that I believe are underrated by the gaming community (at least by the vocal ones on the "intertubes"). There is one key criterion for this segme...

 
 
 
 

About naia-the-gamerone of us since 1:51 PM on 09.13.2007



My name is Naia (pronounced either Nay-a or Neye-a, like yay or like eye). I've been poking around here for a while, although I don't comment as much as I used to. I am I'm a starving artist in LA trying to keep my sanity. I do mostly freelance stuff and I'm always looking for people (even on DToid) to do fun projects with in entertainment. That can be either in theater, film, TV, or video games. I want to be like Kermit the Frog and be part of a group that entertains. I also love blue slimes, puppies and Sprinkles Cupcakes.

I've been playing computer and video games all my life. My dad's a programmer so we got an IBM PC very early on in the 80's. For Christmas in 1989 my parents surprised me with a Nintendo and it's been downhill ever since. I have/had an NES, gameboy (of all flavors) SNES, Sega Genesis, Sega Gamegear, Sega Saturn, PS1, PS2, PS3, Gamecube, DS, PSP, Wii, and 360. Whew!

I am a HUGE Dragon Quest Fan Girl. I did NOT buy an R4 to play Dragon Quest 4 in broken beta-english. I also do NOT play ROMs because I did NOT want to play Dragon Quest V and VI ten years ago in english, not knowing if I would ever see those games in the US. ROMS are bad :P Squenix can shit in a bag and if the bag has a cute slime on it, I'll buy it. I know it's a problem.

Also, Rydia is my hero.

I like games with colors in them aside from brown and black, even if most of the world calls those games "kiddy." Screw that! I play RPGs, Action/Adventure, Platformers, Puzzles, and Point-n-Click Adventure games. I will play fighters and shooters, but they have to be the right kind of game.

I'm such a nerd, I like to keep track of all the games I've completed in an excel file (it's around 300 something). Now that my backlog is out of control I have a word document for that too. My goal is to for once and for all eliminate the backlog, or at least keep it to a number in the single digits.

I have a lot of things to say about the game industry, it's something I care deeply about and love giving my opinions. I like to rant about shit. I'm here just to share what I have to say, in hopes someone is willing to listen. If I'm not here, I'm most likely wasting my life on IRC.

Also for the record, my Top 5 Games of All Time
1. Chrono Trigger
2. Final Fantasy 4
3. Super Mario 3
4. Dragon Quest 3
5. Phantasy Star 4

Yes, I love my retro games
