  • Kickstart: Edge of Eternity

    17 Feb 2015

    It’s common to hear people complaining that there aren’t any RPGs that utilize Turn-Based combat anymore. Rather, most have gone the way of Real-Time Combat. And while that’s fine, there’s something special about ATB/Turn-Based – perhaps it’s because that’s how the genre started out and what many people first experienced – it’s always been a […]

  • Persona 5 Trailer

    05 Feb 2015

    I’m not sure I can adequately express the excitement this trailer brought me. Persona is one of my favorite RPG series ever, and is easily in my top 3 of all time. If you’ve never played one of these yet, allow me to give some backstory.

    Hello all! I just wanted to post a brief update as to what I have been doing other than FFoP over the last 6 or so months. First off though, I would like to apologize for my extended absence from the blog. In short, life happened. Fall semester at my college began and while I […]

  • Game Music Bundle 8

    04 Dec 2014

    Are you a fan of video game music? I’ve loved the soundtracks since I first heard Manami Matsumae’s work on the Mega Man series before I could even read. Since then, I’ve grown to love music of many forms, and video games span so many genres and hold so many emotions that it’s hard not […]

    15 Oct 2014

    That’s right, GOG is giving away Aliens vs. Predator Classic 2000 away for free as part of their expanded beta of GOG Galaxy.
