Why No RPG Is Impossible


Pretty much. Just accept it.

As I’ve said before, my first RPG was the original Final Fantasy and yes, on the original NES. I recently went back to play it and noticed a few things I didn’t quite remember. For starters, it wasn’t nearly as hard as I remember it, but that could be because I’ve been playing RPGs for a while now…or it could be that I know different party combinations that work well.

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things – Episode 9

Yeah, been a while since I’ve done one of these.

All the same, if I think of even ONE, I try to force myself to write immediately. As usual, there are embedded vids on the images. Enjoy!

God Hand

General Overview

It’s like Hokuto no Ken (Fist of the North Star) as told by Clover Studios, creators of Viewtiful Joe and Okami, except wackier.

Brawler of the Year – 1994

A lot of you might be skeptical about the pick this year, but trust me, it’s one you’ll want to totally get behind when you learn more about it. Yet again, this was a year with MANY console brawlers and not so many arcade brawlers. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it might be a sign of things to come.
