  • Retro is not good; last-gen is not bad

    I’ve seen a couple videos lately on the Jak and Daxter series and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion saying they have to be enjoyed as a product of their time because they just aren’t good by today’s standards, and in both cases they made the admission that it wasn’t graphics they were talking about. The […]

  • Why The Legend of Dragoon isn’t being remade

    Let it never be said that fans of The Legend of Dragoon aren’t a tenacious bunch, with them having just jumped on yet another remake project asking for this one-hit wonder to get some love instead. I mean, that’s evergreen, but this specific time it’s Horizon Zero Dawn, which they have a valid point came […]

That said, something clicked […]

    Fair warning, this game is rated T for Teen and so is this review. Since Digimon Survive seems too much like "Digimon meets Digital Devil Saga" for my tastes, I probably will not be playing it, though in its own way it does sort of sound like the original show aged up for a more […]

  • Buffers Evolution

    The game I got a WonderSwan for, based on a random YouTube video on the WonderSwan. It’s an original WonderSwan game owned by Bandai and outsourced to Koto Laboratory, releasing near the end of 1999, which means it’s purely in monochrome. Still, the off mention of it on YouTube caught my attention because it certainly […]
