Final Fantasy 4 Screenshots

If my original naming convention for the following shots is any indication, I’ll never learn to call this game Final Fantasy 4; in my mind, it will forever be North America’s “Final Fantasy 2,” and this meant that I had to go through and manually rename all of the screenshots after mindlessly labeling them all with the old name. So much hassle could have been avoided if they just called it the right thing from the very beginning. Ugh.

Anyway, Final Fantasy 2 (or 4, or whatever) is an awesome game. Sure, the grammar is atrocious thanks to an insane translation that had to have been at least partially influenced by alcohol, but that only makes the whole thing all the sweeter. This is truly a wonderful remnant of a bygone (and slightly awkward as console gaming tried to move into more complex stories) era. Read more →

Jade Cocoon Screenshots

Jade Cocoon is weird. So weird, in fact, that I wasn’t sure if I was having fun while I played it. All I knew at the time was that it was unlike anything I’d ever played. However, the little stories and mythology of the game stuck in my head for days, then weeks, then months, and I eventually realized that it had managed to have an impact on me. Ultimately, it’s not the kind of game that you’ll find yourself playing through over and over, but going through it once or twice every so often is very much worthwhile because of how completely unique it is.

The Witcher 2 Screenshots (Roche’s Path)

Check out the review of the game here: The Witcher 2 Review

Witcher 2 is a fun game with a few glaring problems. The first game felt like a deeper and more involved experience overall, but the voice acting and graphics are undeniably better in 2 (though the first game’s oil painting look is still very pretty).

These are screenshots of the game on its highest settings, including the incredibly taxing “ubersampling” setting. I find that it blurs the textures a bit much for my taste, but it nonetheless makes things look incredible at times. To see screenshots of the game without any of the game’s fancy ubersampling, check out my non-uber screenshots from Iorveth’s path. Read more →

The Witcher 2 Screenshots (Iorveth’s Path)

Check out the review of the game here: The Witcher 2 Review

Witcher 2 is a fun (but flawed) game. The first game did a number of things better, but 2 is still very much fun and worth playing if you can run it. “If” being the key part of that sentence; while the Xbox 360 version is always an option, the vastly superior PC version requires pretty beefy hardware to run it adequately.

These are screenshots of the game on its highest settings except for the very demanding “ubersampling” setting, which is off. For an example of what it looks like while on, check out my screenshots of Roche’s path here. Read more →

Crysis Screenshots

Check out my review of the game here: Crysis review

When I started this site, I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. That’s not only true on the technical side of the equation, but also in the larger sense that I had no idea about the kind of tone and article length I wanted to aim for. Even worse, I panicked at the idea of a site devoid of content, so the first month or so was filled with me doing reviews every day for games I had already played, greatly reducing their quality. Because of forcing myself to do so many reviews back then, I was left with little choice but to go through the saves for games I’d played, frantically making screenshots around my save points so that I’d have screenshots to append to the end of articles.

Long story short, these Crysis screenshots are out of order and don’t capture all of the great moments in Crysis due to me skipping randomly through saves when I made them. Sorry. If it helps, I (eventually) got better at this whole “site” thing. Read more →

Parasite Eve Screenshots

Parasite Eve is not for everyone. Not only does it have a much slower pace than most modern gamers would find comfortable, but main character Aya’s run speed is equally slow, coming across more as a baywatch sprint along the beach than an actual run. This can get a bit frustrating at times. Still, if you’re the kind of person who like games that create and maintain that suffocating, “everything is out to get you” atmosphere throughout the entire story, you can’t do much better than a game where random living things are mutating into grotesque monsters. Even a cute little puppy dog can end up being your worst enemy. Read more →
