When it comes to RPGs, I tend to consider myself a “connoisseur” of them. I play a ton of RPGs, both old and new. It’s my favorite genre, and it’s no surprise that some of my favorite RPGs have shown up on Nintendo consoles. However, a ton of them are fairly obscure. This is probably … More The Treasure Trove of Hidden Gems: Nintendo’s Obscure RPGs
I’ll admit something, I’ve never been a fan of Nintendo’s “Miis”. For over three console generations, Nintendo has tried to push these customize-able avatars onto its audience.

I love open-world games, specifically open-world RPGs. Role-playing games just feel good with a lot of open areas to fully explore. The problem with open-world RPGs is that they have a fair bit of problems, some of which have persisted with the genre since their inception in the 90s. To be fair though, I’ve seen … More Personal Thoughts: What Makes a Great Open-World RPG?
Having just talking about the oddity that was the Batman OnStar commercials, I thought I’d discuss another oddball advertisement. I’m of course talking about the often forgotten original trailer for Phantasy Star Online. Back in the day when a game was coming out, you were usually given a trailer that was mostly gameplay.
