    E3 Wish List

    I am mostly hoping Sony and Microsoft show off some new IPs and exclusives and don't dedicate their time to just discussing their VR stuff. That's coming from someone totally disinterested in VR, of course -- I know its presence is inevitable but I want some plain ol' games. Specifically I...

    Can Final Fantasy XV be appealing towards Western RPG players and beyond?

    A good cast doesn't translate to a quality movie. The voice talent behind the FFXIII series included some pretty well-known voice actors and the game is still not very good. The voice acting is rather disappointing, as well. Ali Hillis, for example, was wooden and unconvincing as Lightning but...

    Can Final Fantasy XV be appealing towards Western RPG players and beyond?

    This is such a bizarre move though, and one I cannot see capturing Western audiences. Yes, there are some big names in Kingsglaive, but I can't see anyone who is a fan of Aaron Paul or Lena Heady even hearing about Kingsglaive, let alone saying to themselves "Oh Jesse Pinkman is in a CGI movie...

    What games are you playing now?

    I've never been into post-game stuff too much really. I'm not a completionist by any means. I just want a fun game and to trade Pokemon with my friends, which Y is thus far delivering on. Like I said, I haven't played a Pokemon game since Soul Silver and I only got six badges in it, so I'm not...

    Should you get the resale FFXV Collector's Edition?

    I think it was Ticketmaster that recently went after scalpers. Somehow they found a way to take down listings by people who bought tickets for a now sold out show then made them available to the public at the regular cost. I'm not sure that it's logistically possible for Square to do that, but...

    What games are you playing now?

    I'm playing Pokemon Y now! It's my first Pokemon since Soul Silver and pushed me to finally buy a 3DS today (I've been borrowing my sister's). I'm really enjoying all the new stuff in the game.

    Kingdom Hearts HD II.8 Final Chapter Prologue (PS4)

    It says a lot about the status of the Kingdom Hearts series that a single environment screenshot is noteworthy.

    PS4K/PS4.5 What do you think ?

    As someone who bought at launch, it does put me out a little that not even three years later my console is outdated. This is where the console and tech market is headed, though, for better or worse. PC gaming has always had the advantage of incremental upgrades; if your GPU is a little out of...

    Final Fantasy VII's PS4 and iOS port has a feature all classic JRPG re-releases should copy

    I would kill for this in X/X-2HD. I'm trying to fill my Monster Arena and boy oh boy am I tired of waiting for the right monster to spawn...

    Translations are a sign of weakness. (Actually they're fine as a companion but I prefer to read the originals too. Theoretically.)

    Well, I'm an English Education major so one would hope that I would enjoy reading for school in general even if there are works that I don't particularly like. Unfortunately the pacing for my current classes is quite quick and, in one, we're focusing on early British literature which can be a...

    I love reading but between work and school, I lately have very little time for it. :( I do have to read for school, though, so I suppose that counts. My last school reading that I really enjoyed was "The Yellow Wallpaper." When I get time I'd love to re-read Murakami's 1Q84 and the Harry Potter...

    Is linearity (inherently) bad in videogames ?

    Linearity is a problem if it interrupts the player experience; otherwise, the openess of the game should be decided according to the game's needs. In a title like The Last of Us, the player will rarely notice the linearity because of the strength and pacing of the narrative: you feel compelled...

    Sora96's FINAL FANTASY X/X-2 HD Remaster PS4 Review

    I don't think it's so much a complaint of the background music itself -- in fact, quite the opposite. Let's say you get into a random encounter every thirty seconds or so (I have no idea how often it really is, especially not with the RNG problems reported for the PS4 version). That means you're...

    Mass Effect trilogy for PS4 & Xbox One?

    There are benefits of a next-gen collection that PC gamers don't currently have, though. For starters, I would hope that a PS4/XBO collection would include at least some of the DLC. I own most of it already and consider much of it mandatory pieces of the Mass Effect experience, but to my...
