  • Blog Post: Kim's Anticipated RPGs For 2014

    As many know, I love my role-playing games. Every year, I look at what's on the horizon, and I find there's more awaiting me than I initially realized. This year a variety of RPGs are scheduled; Final Fantasy is closing out Lightning’s story in Lightning Returns, the team behind Disgaea... More
  • Blog Post: Top 50 Challenge – Shin Megami Tensei IV

    An exceptional RPG strikes the perfect balance between story and mechanics. Players should be engaged by the characters and events, but also by the combat and the systems under the hood. Ideally, a game serves both sides of the equation equally. Lucky for Shin Megami Tensei IV, a surplus of good ideas... More
  • Blog Post: Fight For The Top 50 – Shin Megami Tensei IV

    I've been a Shin Megami Tensei fan for nearly a decade. Finding ways to overcome the harrowing battles just scratch an itch for me. I love how if I die, I always rethink my strategy and return with a better solution. Some people might call me a glutton for punishment – a masochist, if you will... More

  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – R.I.P.D.

    Sometimes during a Test Chamber, we find wonderful games like Towerfall that deserve more recognition. Other times, we play games that seem to walk under Ride to Hell: Retribution’s already low bar of quality. R.I.P.D. (short for Rest in Peace Department) might fall into the latter category. It's...

  • Blog Post: Time Sinks – Persona 3

    In the PlayStation 2 era, role-playing games reigned supreme. It was nearly impossible to keep up, but I always finished off one and moved on the next seamlessly. Jumping from RPG to RPG started to take its toll. By 2007, it felt like I had seen it all, and RPGs weren't surprising me or doing anything... More

  • Blog Post: Opinion: The Difficulty Dilemma

    After hurrying home with my copy of The Last of Us and starting it up with eager anticipation, I faced a pressing question that happens nearly every time I start a new game. What difficulty setting do I want to play? It’s a loaded question. After all, I have never played the game; I don’t... More
  • Blog Post: Moments: Persona 3’s Junpei and Chidori

    We often meet people who change our lives in some profound way. Perhaps they teach us something we didn't know about ourselves, force us to become a better version of ourselves, or maybe they show us what it means to put someone else first. Either way, once these people enter our lives, we're... More
  • Blog Post: Your Soul Hackers Survival Guide

    Soul Hackers isn't an easy game; challenges are around every corner. I beat some boss battles on the first try, while others took me over five attempts. I thrived off the challenge. Each time I saw a Game Over screen, it only made me want to try that much harder not to see it again. Ever since my... More
