1080 Snowboarding Review

Snowboarding is one of the many methods fate has used in her never-ending quest to ultimately murder me. Given such a checkered history between the two of us, I was forced to get my lust for frostbite and blinding amounts of the color white out of my system through alternate, less hazardous means.

There’s something about the balance that Final Fantasy 8 strikes between the old and new that I find intoxicating. Read more →

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening Review

This review covers both the original and DX versions of Link’s Awakening, since they’re virtually identical save for a few bonus things in the latter and its inability to use the skip screens cheat. There are also an insane amount of spoilers ahead, just in case you’re worried about the having the plot to a 1993 game spoiled. Read more →
