  • X-Men ’97, ep. 1-5

    It’s… certainly been a while, hasn’t it? I’ve got a few things in progress and some of them might still be worth releasing, but overall, things have just been a different kind of busy. Spoiler warning, there will be ample reference to the original run and of course the new run, but both shows are…

  • Paper Mario, objectively

    Seeing as my original review was running long as a first impressions review and I’m now at the end of the game, I feel like doing an Objective Review System review is probably in order. No review is truly objective; this just puts numbers to my subjective reactions. I want to do this to condense…

  • Super Mario RPG (SNES), first impressions

    Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars is a game I ironically was introduced to on Final Fantasy Wiki, though I in part am the reason (as an admin who was far more active back then) why it’s no longer on there. It’s been a point of mild curiosity, but since the remake is…

  • Paper Mario, the first impressions to last the game

    A second Mario RPG bought while I was on the Super Mario RPG train, and one I have a bit more familiarity with and even got to play a bit on Wii U. In this case, I got myself an N64 and original cartridge to experience it the way it was meant to be played:…

  • Backbone One – PlayStation Edition for Android

    So, Sony has finally done what I’d hoped for ages ago and released a controller to make use of their library in some regard. One with the Backbone pedigree, which of course is most famous for its iPhone usage, where the Kishi had been given room to thrive on Android, which I’ll be spending a…

  • Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection

    This is really going to be a "first impressions," but let’s get the obvious out of the way: the question here is not whether the games themselves are good, but whether this is a worthy effort to bring them to modern systems. I’ll also touch on the games themselves a bit, because there are a…

  • Warriors of Virtue objective retrospective

    At some point I swear I started writing this, but I can’t find it for the life of me. I feel like putting this to my Objective Review System would be a good alternative to something more free-form, but I do admit a little hesitance. Regardless, this is a May 1997 movie that one would…

  • Pet Quest

    I downloaded this mostly because I wanted to get a feel for what was already out there when fishing for ideas for Jerako: Walk With Me! Sometimes knowing what’s already out there helps you understand what people expect and therefore want to see. And for what it is, it’s cute, but not really the sort…

  • Marmite

    Normally, I wouldn’t do a food review, but as an American, I decided to do it for reasearch purposes. It started with an article and continued with a novelization of the original Final Fantasy I can’t talk about here, but I decided I needed to put my money where my mouth is and take the…

  • Samsung Galaxy Watch5 Pro

    Since my second Sony SmartWatch 3 has died (my Sony SmartWatch 2 is still trucking), I found it necessary to get another watch to alternate charging with. As far as battery goes, the Samsung Galaxy Watch5 Pro is the only one on the market not advertised to last "until supper, maybe, if you leave it…
