FFXIV and Cutscenes in Story Dungeons

This is something I meant to write about ages ago when I played Final Fantasy XIV A Realm Reborn for the first time, and now currently playing the newest expansion Stormblood I felt the need to take this up now since I feel this is still (somewhat) relevant with even more new players joining in the mmo. (Also felt like ranting cuz I got these dungeons in the Main Story Roulette recently lol)

Games and Anime highlights of 2016 (Part 1)

I’m not gonna sugarcoat this, 2016 sucked as a year, just as a year in general. Not specifically animated or gamewise. Just fuck 2016.

So many good people died, tragedies have happened all across the world, USA got Donald Trump as a president and it’s terrifying and just so many things happening this year that it is probably going to go down as a year to be remembered. And not in a good way.

Thankfully though for anime and game fans, we actually had quite a good year and had some really awesome games and anime that I think are worth mentioning.

This is not going to be a Top10 or really a list per se, but just me telling you guys my personal favorite anime and games that have come out this year that I loved.

The Last Remnant Review (PC ver.)

Every now and then a game will come along that flies under the radar. This is very true in the JRPG world, since it’s not mainstream unless it has Final and Fantasy in the title. A lot of these sleeper hits come from the creators of FF, whether they are still employed by Square Enix or not. Chrono Trigger, Xenogears, Shadow Hearts, Lost Odyssey, all created by Square or former employees and all underground hits. The Last Remnant features the Unlimited Saga team, and will be the next in line to fall under the category of a truly great, unsung hero.

You’d think when you have a game that was released in 2008, you would have finished playing it by now.

But then you finish playing it, and you don’t know what to do with your life anymore.

Which brings me to the game I’m going to talk about, The Last Remnant.

Don’t Lose Hope: Why Hope Estheim is an Awesome Character – eternal.quiet Blog – www.GameInformer.com

Hope Estheim is one of my absolute favorite final fantasy characters and this post…

OH. MY. FRICKING. GOD. Man, you don’t know how much I love this analysis. I have always been a strong defender of Hope as a character myself, and can’t be any more pleased that they literally deconstructed his entire character in a way audiences can relate, and even threw in some sociology to boot!

From one blogger to another, they’ve done a fantastic job.

Digital Devil Saga 1&2 Review

DigitalDevilPSN-Banner

Megami Tensei is probably one of those under-rated series you have never heard about. Compared to the marketing budget that series like Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, Star Ocean, Tales Of, Suikoden or even .Hack can afford, the developer/publisher Atlus are very well known for producing very limited numbers of their games, in order to minimise losses (remember the E.T. scandal?) as well as recognizing that the the Japanese role-playing games genre belongs to a small niche market, dominated only by a single franchise; Final Fantasy. Perhaps it makes sense from a marketing point of view, but it doesn’t help in introducing a great series to people.
