Picking up that pixiedust again.

Okay, so I've been off the c-blog radar for a bit post-wise. I guess you could say its just been a slow month and I've kinda just been in and out of games. Plus I had a free month of Netlix and I was trying to cram down as much Star Trek: T...


Looking at the bright side of a dark future.

Okay, so my last post was a bit on the grumpy side about the Xbox One. Let's look at the bright side for a moment: Those that fight what consumers want will fail and fall to a someone that didn't. A new market leader or familiar face may e...


Thank you for Xbox One!

I would first like to thank faithful Bioware fans that dutifully purchased each Bioware game new (I went with used, personally) because they believed they were "supporting" the developer when that was never true. You were the first among ma...


Violence: Hey, can't we just talk this out?

One of the defining elements of my favorite RPG franchise, Shin Megami Tensei, isn't just the supernatural-cyberpunk post-apocalypse it inhabits but also in how it approaches conflict. In main series SMT entries - and even occasional spin-o...


Shortblog: HACK YOU very much.

Tomorrow is the day Soul Hackers finally comes to America. Sixteen years ago it was released on the Sega Saturn and fourteen years ago it could have been a PSX game but noooooooo, Sony didn't want it because it had no new content. That'...


More pixels mean deeper conspiracies.

I have proof! You can practically feel the dystopian hues in the image above as the pixels get more dense. Adam Jensen and Motoko Kusanagi would certainly see it. Maybe not so much Neo from The Matrix or Decker from Blade Runner. Just l...


A Symphony ends and Spring begins

You know, I was complaining to my roommate that Spring was taking too long to get here and then I got a nice whiff of fresh pollen the other day. Now I can't stop sneezing. Spring pretty much always begins with hay fever and now Spring can ...


Shortblog: All the Personas!

Well, I said I wasn't going to do Persona games in my little RPG adventure this year, but then I got that Vita, picked up Persona 4 Golden with it and now all the other Persona games went on sale on PSN with the exception of Eternal Punishm...


As The Fire Emblem Turns...

We gather here to remember the fallen. Vaike will no longer get Vaikier; The Teach will no longer have classes in session. Where he died in the Plegian desert, Libra took up his axe and his place among the Shepards.. Cherche, a loyal va...


Oh, there's my pixiedust!

So yeah, I kinda fell off the blogging thing for a week and a half. The good news is that a lot of the stressful goings on are settled and I've actually regained some focus on games. You know, rather than try to play a dozen of them. A lit...


Short attention span gaming!

So I have not exactly been focused on one game of late. My attention's been shooting off in several directions. I guess some of this is due to some recent emotional rollercoasters and some of it is just from letting myself get off on a tang...


The Splurge

So with all that talk about Fire Emblem, relationships and such recently, I was kinda getting the itch to play Persona 4 again - though my recent talking about Persona 4 also probably had a bit to do with that, too. Since I had an excess in...


Shortblog: The Purge

Sometimes I do drastic things. After three weeks of kinda just puttering around on my 360, I cleared my thumb drives the internal flash memory, reset the system and took it to Gamestop with my pile of 360 games. This was inevitable, really...


Shin Megami Tensei in a nutshell

If I could describe Shin Megami Tensei, it would be like if Fallout and Pokemon had a baby, but it was raised by Dungeon Master and Pokemon. I guess you could say Fallout was a surrogate mother (well, aside from the fact the MegaTen franchi...
