What makes a game company good? Is it the quality of the games they put out? Is it how they treat their customers? Is it how frequent they can release solid entertaining video-games? I think it’s a mixture of all of these things, which is what makes Vanillaware a truly great company. Vanillaware is one … More Vanillaware: A Truly Fantastic Game Company
If there was any console that died too soon, it was the Dreamcast. The Sega Dreamcast was a console that had a fair bit of really good games, but undersold on the market. The PS2 and Gamecube walloped it to oblivion, forcing Sega to stop making consoles. This really sucks, since the Dreamcast had some … More Power Stone Retrospective Review
Believe it or not, there was a time when there was a ton of video-game shows littering the airwaves. I don’t just mean cartoons either, I’m talking about shows that did nothing but discuss games. Video & Arcade Top 10 and Electronic Playground are just a few examples, but probably the biggest source for gaming … More Remembering X-Play: Gaming Journalism Gone Wrong
When it comes to video-games, there’s a lot of things that can lead a series to success. Be it unique gameplay quirks, tons of content, or just a really nice visual style. A good selling point for a game is the protagonist you get to play as. A lot of games will often give you … More Which Is Better In Video-Games: Custom Characters, or Pre-Made Heroes?
I’d like to tell you all a story: Back in 2008, I had moved to a new city. I didn’t really have any friends, nor was I part of any clubs at the time. I eventually did make some new friends, who formally introduced me to a game that I’ve only heard mentions of before: … More Bethesda Softwork’s Greatest Mistake

Keep in mind that he gave me full permission to share these. I’ll be sure to post pics of the convention … More Photos From Sask Expo 2017, Featuring Syrup and Friends!
When it comes to video-games, it’s hard to top a good “Indie” game. A game made by a small team of developers, but made with a ton of love for the genre its based off of. The “Triple A” market always tends to cater more towards popular trends in gaming. Meanwhile, Indie games pretty much … More My Favorite Indie Game: Mount & Blade Warband
It’s hard to believe that it has been over a decade since Monster Hunter first hit store shelves. Since then, the series has been host to a ton of sequels and spin-offs. Almost all spin-offs have yet to receive an American release. Since the games never sold well in America for the longest time, it … More First Impressions: Monster Hunter Stories Demo Review
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. This on its own isn’t bad, but Nintendo kept trying to make these paper-doll characters a household name. They were in several games, including ones where they were … More First Impressions: Miitopia
