  • Blog Post: Opinion – Square Enix Has A Lot To Prove To RPG Fans

    I’m often asked about Square Enix’s place in the modern RPG market. I feel conflicted on the subject. The fan in me is still excited for the upcoming Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy XV, while the logical part of me feels like the company has moved away from what made people fall in love... More
  • Blog Post: Game Ideas That Were Crazy Enough To Work

    PopCap latest installment in its Plants vs. Zombies franchise was a bit unorthodox, to say the least.

  • Blog Post: The Best RPG Characters To Hang Out With

    I spend a lot of time in virtual worlds, but what always draws me in are the characters I explore them with. I find part of why I love role-playing games so much is the distinct personalities of these characters; they often become more than just images on the screen. Every so often while I play, I find...

  • Blog Post: Year In RPGs For 2012

    At the end of every year, I find myself looking back on its role-playing games and examining the trends, highlights, and disappointments. Putting it in perspective, 2012 won’t go down as a pinnacle year for RPGs, but if you look closely, the year held plenty to love. Operation Rainfall Comes To... More

  • Blog Post: Do You Need A Circle Pad Pro For Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance?

    The latest Kingdom Hearts game (releasing July 31st) is one of a handful of titles compatible with the 3DS Circle Pad Pro add-on. But does it add anything besides bulk? After playing Resident Evil: Revelations, I was convinced that any game compatible with the Circle Pad Pro would be vastly improved... More
  • Blog Post: Naming The Next Kingdom Hearts Game

    One brave GI editor tries to out-crazy Square Enix by coming up with 11 ridiculous titles for the next Kingdom Hearts game. Coming up with good names for video games is hard, and the Kingdom Hearts folks over at Square Enix are clearly out of ideas. They added a completely unnecessary colon to Kingdom... More

    All things considered, 2010 hasn’t been a terrible summer for gamers.

  • Blog Post: Gulp! A Look At A Gaming Standby

    Game heroes do what they please. Destroying cities, wrecking cars and using the innards of creatures as a playground aren't uncommon occurrences. These protagonists may be bold and daring heroes, but that’s no reason to go use a giant worm’s uvula (the hangy ball thing in your throat... More
