    Are you looking for a multiplayer-heavy game for your Xbox One? Are there times when you are alone but still want to play a game? Do you like 2D platformers in the vein of Super Meat Boy, or controls that are limited to twin sticks and a trigger? Well, have I got a game for […]

  • Bringing Stop-Motion to Life with Armikrog

    06 Mar 2015

    Pencil Test Studios is special to me because of their history. If you don’t know them by name, perhaps you will when you hear some of the games the co-founders worked on: Disney’s Alladin, Earthworm Jim, and The Neverhood. If you haven’t played any of those, then you have my condolences. In any case, their […]

    Do you like isometric games? How about action games? What about both of those combined? Well, have we got the game for you… you may remember when 3D Realms announced this back when they rose from the grave, but did you know this game was being kicked around back in ’98?!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Where Has Chris Been?

    31 Jan 2015

    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 […]

  • Where’s my FFoP?

    29 Jan 2015

    Hey guys, sorry about the long hiatus in regards to articles/content in general. I was finishing up my degree in December and have since been on the hunt for financial stability (and there have been quite a few personal matters to attend to as well) – while I still haven’t found a job (there’s one […]
