Love Zelda and Link?

•••
Someone very awesome hacked the Legend of Zelda game (one of my favorite classic Nintendo games) to allow you to play as Princess Zelda and rescue Link. So cool! So glad I saw this. I loved playing RPGS growing up, and I still play them as an adult, though less frequently. I often wished that instead of being stuck playing a guy, I could play as a gir[...]

Tera - Open Beta

•••
This weekend I had the opportunity to play in the Tera MMO Open Beta. I've been playing SWTOR very casually, like, once or twice a month, so when one of my oldest and dearest friends spoke to me about Tera and showed me how he'd recreated me as a high elf in the game, it piqued my interest.

Why Bioware Enforces They Deserve My Money

•••
I don't write often enough about games on my blog. However, I wanted to share something cool about a game company, Bioware. Recently they released a game called Dragon Age 2. This game has been played non-stop by Ray and Dave since it came out, and I've been watching it. It's an awesome RPG. You get to choose to be a mage, warrior or rogue and the game chang[...]

Monster Rancher My first favorite games series is Monster Rancher, which was made by Techmo and released on the original PlayStation. It's a life simulation game.
