The Month in Gaming: June 2012

I'll be halfway through the Final Fantasy series after this month is over, as well as having finished up the Mass Effect trilogy. How were they each?   Considered one of the top two titles in the entire series, I was eager to dive in to this game. I had played it years ago as part of Final Fantasy Anthology, released for the original PlayStation, but I didn't recall the gritty details.

The Month in Gaming: March 2012

Just like last month, my gaming for the month of March spanned several titles across various platforms.   Final Fantasy III First and foremost was continuing the Final Fantasy goal for the month, which saw me play Final Fantasy III on the Nintendo DS.
