General / A Year in Review - 2019
« on: December 16, 2019, 08:07:31 am »
It's that time again already. The year flew by; 2019 is coming to a close. Once again, I thought it would be fun to have everyone reflect on their gaming journeys throughout the year. I'll make some categories. You fill them in. This has always been fun for me to read. Hopefully, it's just as fun for the rest of you.

Categories:

Favorite 2019 Release: What's your favorite game that you played this year that was released in 2019?

Least Favorite 2019 Release: On the opposite end, what's your least favorite game released in 2019?

Favorite Game Played in 2019: What game this year earns your spot for best game ever? It could be released in 2019 if you like.

Least Favorite Game Played in 2019: What's your least favorite game that you played this year?

Sleeper Hit of 2019: What's your personal sleeper hit for 2019?

Favorite Gaming Moment in 2019: What moment in a game you played this sticks in your head the strongest? Was it something awesome? Something tragic? Something completely over the top? Keep spoilers to a minimum or mark them if you can.

Proudest Collection Accomplishment of 2019: Share a story about a cool find from this year!

I'll give my answers in the next post. Have fun!

I'm super excited to announce that I finally took the plunge and started my own website to house all of my old game reviews, and a place where I can start adding new ones.

I've wanted to do this for a while. The thought started when GameFAQs (where I used to contribute) implemented a policy where unregistered users could leave anonymous feedback for any contribution. GameFAQs already has a bad reputation for being a shitty website because of the users. This feature allowed people to say whatever they wanted without even having to sign up for an account. 

I got closer and closer to taking the dive when the site decided to do away with a numeric rating system. The new system they use, which is represented by pixel hearts, looks ridiculous. I think it makes reviews hard to gauge.

The final straw was when they decided to alter contributor recognition. I never did and never will write game reviews for fame and glory, but their alterations felt like a real punch in the gut. Making contributions to them feels like a waste a time.

Just a few things if you decide to check out the site:

The first thing is that not all of my reviews from GameFAQs have been transferred. I didn't see a need to re-share my opinion on something like Karaoke Revolution or Virtua Fighter 4. One of the goals of my site is to capture my taste as a gamer. Reviews that I wrote just to fill up my review count don't need to be re-shared.

The second thing is that many of the reviews have an "author's note" at the top. I started writing these in 2002. My writing from 2002 is, thankfully, nothing like the writing of today. Other than adding an overall score, I chose to make zero changes to my reviews because I feel like they're good indicators of how my writing style has changed over the years. Many of them have more cringe than an old Live Journal post, but I wanted to retain as much authenticity as possible. I can't emphasize how embarrassing some of them are, but I'm happy to remain embarrassed if it means I can share my opinion on something I'm passionate about.

The third thing is that the I'm open to constructive feedback. I love how my site looks. I wanted something functional and easy to use/navigate. But, I'm always looking to improve. The person who helped me design this website is a friend of mine on the PSN, so I can get in touch with him easily if there's something that needs immediate fixing that's out of my scope.

The fourth thing is that I'm not looking to make any sort of profit from this. I've done this since 2002 because I love it. Gaming is a passion, and writing about them after I finish them is a cathartic, pleasant process that lets me turn my thoughts into something tangible.

Finally, enjoy! I'm thrilled that I finally have a site to call my own.

Happy holidays, everyone. It's time to get rid of some things in order to make room for new ones. See below for details. I can ship to Canada/Europe as long as the buyer is willing to cover shipping costs.

Just a quick note that I'll be traveling for a few days so I'll have limited access to a computer and, therefore, won't be checking this website as often. However, I'll have my phone on me in case you want to message me via email or Facebook.

I'm not feeling this game, but I saw that a bunch of people had it on their wish lists. I figure someone on here would appreciate it more than some random game store as part of a trade-in.

It's complete and works like a charm. Just send me a PM if interested.

Hello again! It's that time again to prune some stuff that no longer feels right and to help make some space for the things that do. I have a lot of little pieces and parts that I'm attempting to part (the puns) with in order to jumpstart my new collection goal.

Happy New Year, y'all! I decided to do a bit more pruning. This time, it's for some imports that I decided I would never get around to fully finishing. I played all of them for a bit, so I know that they're working. However, some of them are way too advanced and text heavy. I'll try to give a description of the difficulty with the language with each game. See the picture below.

Atelier Lilie (PS2): This is the prequel to Atelier Marie and Atelier Elie, despite it being the third entry in the Atelier series. There isn't a translation guide available anywhere, and the game has TONS of text. You really have to be comfortable with the language in order to proceed. Note that PS2 games are not region free so be sure you have the ability to play it.

Atelier Judie (PSP): This is a fun game in the series because it doesn't have a time limit. That said, it's still full of text and will require a lot of understanding to fully play. PSP games are not region free, so you can enjoy this no matter what. There aren't any guides available as far as I know.

Tales of Phantasia FVE (PSP): This is the Full-Voiced Edition of Tales of Phantasia. If you played the PS version of this, then you'll be basically playing the same thing. There isn't a translation patch available, but there are tons of guides out there. I finished this game twice years ago.

Moonlight Syndrome (PS): This is a non-canonical side story to Twilight Syndrome. According to wiki, the events from The Silver Case take place after this game. I searched for a translation guide but couldn't find one. Make sure you can play this game on your console since PS games aren't region free.

Star Gladiator (PS): As you can see in the picture, the front cover of the game is missing. When I bought the game, the front part of the case was cracked and beyond repair so I removed it. Star Gladiator is a fighting game, so you won't have to worry about the language barrier. Just make sure your console can play it.


I'm open to selling and trading. Just drop me a PM! Here's a link to my feedback page:

General / A Year in Review - 2016
« on: December 01, 2016, 08:12:37 am »
2016 has flown by. I can't believe that we're a few weeks away from the new year. That said, I thought it would be fun for everyone to reflect on their gaming journeys during 2016. I made a similar topic last year and I really enjoyed reading everyone's responses. So, let's do it again for this year! Here are the categories:

Favorite 2016 Release: What's your favorite game that you played this year that was released in 2016?

Least Favorite 2016 Release: On the opposite end, what's your least favorite game released in 2016. Keep it civil, y'all. XD

Favorite Game Played in 2016: All of us enjoy games from yesteryear. What game this year earns your spot for best game ever? It could be released in 2016 if you like, but my guess is most will pick something released from a different year.

Least Favorite Game Played in 2016: And again, on the opposite end, what's your least favorite game that you played this year? I know I played a few stinkers, so this one will be hard for me to pick.

Sleeper Hit of 2016: What's your personal sleeper hit for 2016? Pick a game that didn't get much promotion and/or little marketing, yet still turned out to be a good time. Try to make it from 2016, but any year works.

Favorite Gaming Moment in 2016: What moment in a game you played this sticks in your head the strongest? Was it something awesome? Something tragic? Something completely over the top? Keep spoilers to a minimum or mark them if you can.

Proudest Collection Accomplishment of 2016: Did you find a helluva deal? Share the story and the game that came with it! These are usually really fun to read.

I'll give my answers in my next post.
