Moments: The End Of The World In Grandia
on May 31, 2013 at 05:34 PM
Grandia was the first RPG that kept me awake at night. The skillful way in which the player is rewarded for getting through dungeons and other various enemy-infested areas is something I have rarely seen done well. Game Arts made sure that any time you were fighting battle after battle and trekking through...
PS1 RPG Classics That Hold Up
on February 26, 2013 at 02:30 PM
Going back to your favorite game over a decade later can be tough. You realize that the graphics that you once thought were the most gorgeous to grace your screen are not only unimpressive, but downright ugly. Gameplay systems often crumble under the weight of years and stories just don’t carry...

Triple-A million-dollar-budget behemoths like Final Fantasy XIII (pictured above) are very much the exception these days. Obviously much...
What's Kraken? A Look At One Of Gaming's Dependable Bosses
on September 27, 2009 at 10:21 PM
When man sailed the seas, the almighty kraken was enough to keep a crew awake at night. With long tentacles that could ensnare an entire ship and a gaping beak tough enough to crack a hull clean through, it made sense that the mythical beast was feared for so long. As seafaring types have become more...
