Review: Final Fantasy

Final Fantasy
Kicking off the massive undertaking was the original itself. Loading it up on the PlayStation Portable, I was treated to an opening cutscene showing off graphics that I would not see again for the duration of the game. Seriously, if the game is being re-released, and cutscene graphics are being made, yeah it's cool to be at the start and all, but you really only watch it once or twice and then you hit a button to bypass it to get to the load screen to start playing. Why not have some cutscenes in

Demo Impressions: Final Fantasy XIII-2

For me, Final Fantasy XIII was the single worst game in the entire series. I hated it and really just completed it for the sake of doing so. However, for some reason there is a sequel coming out and it's actually getting better reviews than its predecessor -- although that doesn't seem too terribly difficult -- but enough with the FFXIII hate.

Going Old School in the New Year

The gaming theme of this year has, for me, turned out to be a combination of "Old School" and getting back to my roots. As 2012 drew near and my time with Skyrim came to a close, I found myself wanting to play old games instead of the literal pile of unplayed games sitting on my entertainment stand.

2012: The Year of… Final Fantasy?

I realize that 2012 is quite a significant year. It's the year of a major Presidential election (Go Ron Paul!), the year of a potential apocalypse (allegedly unrelated to the aforementioned election), and even the year of the Dragon. But, at least for me, 2012 will also be the Year of Final Fantasy. Allow me to explain.

The New DC 52

So several months ago, DC Comics announced that they would be relaunching 52 new #1s of their comics. Some were actual relaunches, while others were brand new solo series. As someone that is a DC fanboy, but primarily follows Batman, I figured it would be a good point to jump in and see these other series -- some of which I have previously checked out, usually when the heros' path crossed with Batman at some point. Though it's about a month after the fact, here are my quickie thoughts on each of the new 52.
