I’m sure I’m not alone in the group of kids that collected baseball cards in the 80s/90s with hopes of cashing them in 20 years later so you could retire. Funny thing is that never happened. The baseball cards from about 1982 to 1995 are probably some of the most worthless cards ever produced…because they [...]
Since this is still tabletop month (and the board game I was hoping to play didn’t come in on time), I figure it’d be a good idea to stick to our good old friend, Role-Playing games. Though, while my last article focused on the past, this article is going to focus on the three campaigns [...]
A few years ago I was playing Dungeons & Dragons weekly with a group of friends. It was the first time I had really played D&D. I had a RPG-wannabe stage in junior high but never really sat to learn and play the game as it was intended…the most I did was have fun drawing [...]
Lets kick off a month-long series in table top gaming!
I’m not much of an RPG gamer but when I saw Bastion previewed for the Summer of Arcade I pegged it as one I would enjoy. Most of the time my gaming expectations aren’t fully satisfied but this time they were exceeded.
Microsoft’s Summer of Arcade on Xbox Live is nearing very quickly, and while there are a few titles in that bunch that have me excited, this past week’s offers kicked off what will certainly be an expensive summer for me.

There’s a very high chance that my childhood is dead. And not just from age, as I firmly believe that anyone can retain their childlike sense of wonder and attitude for an infinite stretch of time. No, I have a sneaking suspicion that my childhood died a violent death at the hands of a cruel [...]
If anything unites gamers, it’s most certainly fanservice dished out in droves. Knowing this secret to instant success, Square-Enix brought the PSP a little title called Final Fantasy Dissidia, a strange fighter/RPG hybrid that consisted of characters from every numbered Final Fantasy title. Seeing as how it sold like Phoenix Down, Squeenix is back with [...]
I’ve talked about Golden Sun for the Game Boy Advance before. It was the last game spotlighted in my feature, Games You Should Have Played. Since then I’ve had a chance to play through and complete the sequel, Golden Sun: The Lost Age, a direct continuation of the first game picking up exactly where the [...]
Dragon Quest is insanely popular in Japan. Here in the US, however, it’s also insanely popular. And I’m perfectly okay with this as the games tend to be extremely high quality. Squanre-Enix, doing what they do best, decided that it would be a great idea to remake a bunch of old Dragon Quest games for [...]
