Arkham Horror is seriously one of my favorite games ever. Its also a great way to learn more about the HP Lovecraft Mythos… even if it does play more like a DOOM run then a Mythos Story. And what better way to have even more fun in the game via putting yourself into it to travel through the Other Worlds! An awesome Character/Monster/Everything creator can be located here, plus its pretty darn balanced.

Yes I realize I would totally die in a fight, but atleast I’ll go down looking pretty eh?

Final Fantasy 13; So I’m a Bit Behind March 17, 2010

I’m a bit behind the times, I know, but after FF10 & FF12 and the whole other bunch of FF7 knock-offs started to surface, I wasn’t really as into the franchise as I had been in the past. As a personal note, I’ve always been into games that I felt had a really well fleshed out story. Good character build, rising action, climax and falling action. Final Fantasies of yestur-year, although lacking in beauty at times, seemed to focus so much on the story and as they got prettier and prettier, they started feeling like just another game. I guess a good analogy would  be FF6 was like the “When Harry Met Sally” of Romantic Comedies… and as they got older they just reminded me of any other romantic comedy you would pick up and forget about in a year. Its okay if this story doesn’t have a very interesting angle and characters you can forget, LOOK HOW PRETTY IT IS! To be honest with you, I couldn’t tell you much about Lulu from FF10, except she’s a Black Mage, with Belts who eventually has a child with Wakka in FF10-2. But man, I could tell you all the kick ass mini stories of Edge in FF6 cause they were so memorable.

When I saw stuff for FF13, I told myself not to get excited. The world looks like it made of Transformers. Literally the buildings look like they could morph into Bumblebee. But then I watched this trailer… and I don’t know. Something spoke to me. Maybe because it has the same save the world feeling as FF7 or that the main character’s face looks like Cloud. But I don’t know, it just felt compelling again. Bunch of people made misfits because some government says they could destroy the world. There’s a theme there. A meaning that I felt I lost from Final Fantasies. Sooooo at some point I would like to see what this is all about.

And also MAN DOES IT LOOK PRETTY! OMG!! SHIVA IS TWO SISTERS THAT MELD TOGETHER WHEN THEY SCISSORS ONE ANOTHER!? In the words of Barret “!@#%”
