Skyrim Mods converge, create an odd journey

I mentioned in my last article that there was a mod called “Live Another Life”, which gave you an alternate start in your Skyrim game. There’s another Skyrim mod that adds onto that, called “Random Alternate Start”. It’s the exact same thing, only it lets you pick a starting equipment kit, and then places you more »

Everyone wins if Square Enix helps Steam become a JRPG destination

Square Enix is bringing Final Fantasy XIII to Steam. We all have mixed feelings about this. The other day, Final Fantasy IV also hit Steam. We have less mixed feelings, with a touch of apathy because that freakin’ game is on like, everything. But that’s not all. Trails in the Sky debuted on Steam recently, more »

Alternate Skyrim start? My pleasure!

Have you ever wondered what it might be like if you could start Skyrim at a different point than “sentenced to death for unknown crimes”? Maybe you wanted to start in Rorikstead as Erik the Slayer’s childhood friend? Perhaps you wanted to start shipwrecked on an island somewhere? There’s a mod for that. It’s called more »

Stop forcing FFXIII on us, Square Enix

We’ve made up our minds about Final Fantasy XIII. It’s been four years since FFXIII, two since FFXIII-2, and we saw Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII earlier this year. Admittedly, the installments did get better as the trilogy went on, but that doesn’t change one, important thing. People already know about the FFXIII trilogy. We’ve more »

Final Fantasy XV’s a open-world, diesel punk, road trip game? Yes!

I don’t do a lot of modern gaming. My most recent console is my PS2, and even my computer is a two year old laptop that only barely runs Skyrim with the high res pack. So I don’t pay much attention to the latest and greatest video game news. But, when someone showed me the more »

TGS 2014: Vita is technically getting Final Fantasy Type-0 too

Square Enix made a lot of enemies when it announced Final Fantasy Type-0 HD was a at E3 2014. Vita and PSP owners were incensed, since the game made its debut there and there had been huge fan campaigns designed to convince the company there was a market for this particular game outside of Japan. more »

I love Skyrim’s Studded Imperial Armor more than is reasonable

Sometimes, a Princess likes a thing far more than is reasonable. For instance, the idea that I’m an Elven Princess. It’s dumb, but I love it, so I go with it. I feel similarly the Studded Imperial Armor for Skyrim. There’s really no reason for me to like it so much. It’s not that impressive. more »

Okay, I’ll give Oblivion another chance

Recently, I wrote an article talking about how I tried to play Oblivion but found it a worse version of Skyrim. I tried really hard not to insult , because I truly feel that if I’d played Oblivion first, I would have liked it a lot more. Since I didn’t, however, I kept comparing it more »

I’m so hyped for Disgaea 5 because of REVENGE

I always get excited about Disgaea installments. There’s something about the series, and the appeal of a strategy game that can really be played for months, perhaps even a year, before it’s fully mastered. Yet, I also feel that isn’t why I’m excited about Disgaea 5. It isn’t because of what I do know about more »

My Skyrim child is more awesome than yours

My kid is way better than yours. Well, unless you installed the same Skyrim mod I installed. I’ve mentioned that I’m addicted to Skyrim mods already. The number of things the various mods can add are amazing, from new gameplay mechanics to entire new quests. Recently, I found a mod that lets you make any more »

Pokemon Centers getting Groudon and Kyogre New 3DS models

Those New 3DS systems are starting to get pretty hard to resist. Especially since the first “really” limited edition models have been released. Japanese Pokemon Center stores are now taking orders for Groudon and Kyogre New 3DS consoles. The Groudon and Kyogre New 3DS models are actually only special because of their cover plates, which more »
