Lufia & the Fortress of Doom Screenshots

Check out the review of the game here: Lufia & the Fortress of Doom Review

The original Lufia isn’t exactly a stellar game despite being bright and cheery, so it’s probably best experienced through pictures to avoid the head-splitting audio and monotonous random encounters that hit you every three steps. Lufia & the Fortress of Doom may actually be better than I’m making it sound, but you’re going to be sorely disappointed if you go in expecting anything other than a hilariously outdated game. That’s coming from a huge Lufia fan, too (I consider Lufia 2 to be one of the greatest games ever made).

You’ll notice that I have a ridiculous amount of gold in an early screenshot. That’s because I cheated. Rest assured that I’ve played through the game normally enough times for that to not color my review, though. Read more →

Alpha Protocol Screenshots

Alpha Protocol deserved far better than it got. People never bothered to discover that the awful hacking minigame (and all other minigames) can be circumvented with the careful use of the EMP charges that you can bring with you into missions. Once you learn to use them instead of focusing on the minigames, Alpha Protocol is easily an A+ game full of reactivity; who’s living and dead by the end of the game is entirely up to you, and best of all, there are no wrong answers. You can truly play the way you want to, and even better, the story naturally branches as you make decisions. Truly an underrated gem. Read more →

The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion Screenshots

I stopped playing Oblivion before I finished it. Don’t get me wrong—I’ve beaten it enough times to know where it all leads, but my most recent playthrough was just unbearably boring. It’s just really not that good of a game unless you’re blindly devoted to Bethesda, and it’s in that awkward place that games find themselves in when they try to appeal to too many people at once. Basically, there’s a lot of stuff to find and do, and none of it is remotely interesting. How I ever adored this game is beyond me, but I was new to PC gaming back then. Read more →

Lufia 2 Screenshots

Lufia 2 is one of my favorite games of all time. Many SNES games have been rendered incredibly dated by modern gaming, but there are an elite number of games for the system that remain timeless classics, with Lufia 2 undoubtedly being a part of that group. It effortlessly blends mind-bending puzzles (which are always fair and logical) with old-school jRPG combat, and tops all of that off with a memorable story that ties into the previous game and features several incredible characters. Iris and Selan are particularly interesting characters, and Lufia 2 is worth it if for no other reason than the fact that you never see strong female characters like them in gaming anymore.

This game is legendary. Read more →

Dreamfall Screenshots

Check out the review of the game here: Dreamfall: The Longest Journey Review

Dreamfall may be a narrative mess compared to The Longest Journey (which was incredible enough to make any comparison between the two a bit unfair), but it’s still an interesting game worth a play or two. I made sure to include the completely random kiss between Zoe and whats-his-face, because it’s one of my biggest problems with the game; there was so little building up to it that it just came out of nowhere, some random guy coming along to save someone who should have figured out how to save herself. It felt like such a cop-out, as though the developer was desperately trying to avoid Zoe becoming a strong female character like April was in the first game. Dreamfall really butchered its characters. Read more →

The Longest Journey Screenshots

Check out the review of the game here: The Longest Journey Review

There are a lot of really good games out there, but The Longest Journey is in a class of its own, halfway between “timeless old game” and “legitimately awesome adventure.” Basically, you’re doing yourself a major disservice by missing out on the game, especially since April Ryan is a great character who also happens to be surprisingly believable. She’s not a superhero by any means and has trouble dealing with everything happening around her, yet she’s also surprisingly strong at points. There’s also a hilarious amount of sarcasm and great music. It’s just an all-around great game, and one that absolutely blew me away.

It’s worth mentioning that you’re apparently able to change the font with a patch or something. I kind of like it the way it is, though. Read more →
