I’ve had a thought recently. It’s a long thought and a little absurd, but if you like Kingdom Hearts, stick with me. I promise I have a point. Spoilers follow.
Yes its very late, blame Black Lagoon, MGSV, and Moving. Anyway, is X-2 a continuation of the amazing X? or does it fall in to the trap of Sequel never being as good as the first? Let us find out. »
In honour of my Queen, Elizabeth II becoming the longest serving monarch in the history of the British Empire (as of 10:30 AM) I decided to honour her in a way that doesn’t only involve singing at the top of my lungs God Save the Queen but a list of some of the best Queens (and Princesses) in Gaming. My criteria is… »
With the story on Kotaku that Final Fantasy XII may finally be getting a long overdue remaster and of course the megaton announcement at the last E3 that Final Fantasy VII will be getting a full on remake I think it’s as good a time as any to personally rank all the main line Final Fantasy games. For the record this… »
Okay first off, I realize that my nerds guide to working out actually had some push, so to those who are actually working out I have some advice to offer you. »

I got to thinkin’ about the Final Fantasy VII Remake and the myriad directions it might go if indeed it is… »
Final Fantasy X HD Remaster might have just broken my spirit. I went into it so optimistic, so sincerely stoked to relive what I assumed was some kind of crucial high school revelation and bask in widescreen, razorsharp graphics, that it’s easy to see now that I was setting myself up for certain failure. I was doomed,… »
I’ve been thinking on music in games lately. Perhaps it’s because I’ve finally copied a ton of collectible soundtrack CD’s to my iPod. Or maybe it’s because I like music. A lot.
When I was young, my life was structured, what i assumed, in a normal way for a young child with separated parents, every other weekend I would go stay with my dad. He was a typical auto factory worker of the late 90's (he made plaster moulds for car parts, I think) and sometimes worked a lot of overtime. As a safety… »
