Thoughts on Final Fantasy X

note: this game came out ten years ago, so I’m going to speak about spoilers freely I finished Final Fantasy X a few weeks ago. I’d started playing it a long time ago, but the horrible voice acting grated on my nerves and I stopped playing. But, as I was making a list of games … Continue reading “Thoughts on Final Fantasy X”

Final Fantasy 9: First Impressions

After playing Final Fantasy 9 for a few days, here are my first impressions. the graphics are a little distracting – it’s kinda like an uncanny valley thing.  It’s not quite as nice as the new stuff, but better than the SNES graphics.  But there are a lot of closeups because it was state of … Continue reading “Final Fantasy 9: First Impressions”

Final Fantasy 9: The Legacy Continues

I have a lot of love for Squaresoft (well, now they’re SquareEnix), despite the fact that I’ve played relatively few of their games.  I think Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy 6 (originally released as Final Fantasy 3 in the US) are the pinnacle of their jRPG work.  I’ve also played Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy … Continue reading “Final Fantasy 9: The Legacy Continues”

Last.fm 2013 Q2 Listening Habits

For the second quarter in a row The Beatles have NOT made the list! But that’s easily explained: I have been listening to a lot of new music and a lot of playlists that don’t include The Beatles. But as you’ll see, they kinda snuck in sideways. This quarter I spent a lot of time … Continue reading “Last.fm 2013 Q2 Listening Habits”

May 2013 Video Games Report

During the month of May I continued to try and completed story-based games in my library. Quantum Conundrum (3 hrs) – I started playing the game early this year.
