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 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 →

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 →

The first time I ever played Fable, I didn’t get far before quitting. For some reason, I had pegged the game as some kind of open world, Elder Scrolls-esque game. Because I was looking for that, I only saw its flaws and wasn’t able to appreciate what Fable is, which is weirdly reactive. If you eat a lot, you become fat. If you do evil things, you grow horns and get glowy red eyes. If you fight a lot, you become a muscular behemoth. What you do determines who you become, and while it’s rarely very deep, it’s always amusing the number of crazy iterations of a character you can go through in a single playthrough. I went from a guy of pure evil to a nice spellcaster, and from there moved on to focus more on ranged attacking with a bow. Also, I grew an epic white beard. Good times. Read more →

Chrono Trigger Screenshots

Chrono Trigger is not only one of the best games ever made for any system ever, but it also has the most memorable art style. Not one of the most memorable art styles, but the most. Like… of all games, ever. Playing through this game once means remembering the sprites and areas forever, and playing through it 500+ times like I have means having it burned into your brain to the point where you hallucinate Chrono Trigger sprites in real life. It’s becoming a serious problem.

If you’re wondering why all the characters are leveled up so high, it’s a New Game + playthrough. Everyone is leveled to the highest level and I’ve got pretty much every item in the entire game. Because love. Read more →

Most people have never heard of Legend of Legaia, which is too bad because it’s really a good game. Definitely not the best that the original Playstation has to offer, but it’s still a solid jRPG that fans of the genre should check out. There’s a lot to love, from Noa’s amusing lack of social awareness arising from being raised by a wolf to a unique battle system that’s a mix between a fighting game and an RPG. Read more →
