Retroreview: Breath of Fire III

The epic saga of Ryu the dragon boy and his angelic winged companion has been retold now five different times in the Breath of Fire Capcom rpg series. But for some reason, while it might have become drab to see so many ideas rehashed in each iteration, it instead becomes more engaging. The fishing mini-games […]

The Next-Gen RPG Roundup

This is the last few days of our current gen consoles being the “top of the line” hardware. In only a few short months I’ll be firing up my shiny new PS4 and dreaming about FFXV. The marriage of the Playstation and Playstation 2 with JRPG’s has been one of the major reasons I have […]

Why FFXIV: A Realm Reborn Is The Most Exciting Game of 2013 (for me anyway)

Retro Review: Tales of Symphonia

As I browsed the aisle of my local used game store (it’s a 2nd and Charles that just opened up) I found myself losing hope of finding anything decent to play over the weekend. Apparently this store had decided to become a museum for every possible copy of Madden 2003 ever made for the ps2. […]
