Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia Review

Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia Review

I played the game for about 6-7 hours yesterday. I wasn’t immediately smitten with it, but once I got into it, I couldn’t put it down. I was thinking about it this morning as I was taking a shower and...

Final Fantasy 12 – The Movie

Final Fantasy 12 – The Movie

  Or rather, the cut scenes (in game and pre-rendered) from the game. If you’re like me, you really don’t have the time to spend plunking down in front of your TV to play 40-60 hour games anymore.  Most of...

Ebert on Games as Art, Part 2

Ebert on Games as Art, Part 2

Over the last few weeks, there has been quite some noise regarding the debate as to whether video games should be regarded as a form of “art”.  Certainly, this is not a new debate, but it has been reinvigorated as...

Speculating on the next Gameboy

Speculating on the next Gameboy

As I was laying down to sleep, I started to think about the next generation Gameboy (GBX, Gameboy Next).  Honestly, I don’t remember the train of thought that lead me to thinking about it, but I was sooo engrossed, that...
