Two days in a row, and not a review to be had!

Today went much like yesterday: wake up at 6AM and move constantly between obligations until 10PM, only to wake up tomorrow and do a lot of the same thing. In light of this overload of responsibility, there won't be a review today.

But fear not, Faithful Readers! In the time I've had, I've thrown together about 65% of a review; this will be posted in its complete form tomorrow. I've chosen this particular game, Ys III: Wanderers From Ys, for two reasons.

1.) A reader, Tal Zahn (forgive me if that's spelled incorrectly), asked through a comment if I was into RPGs, more or less, and mentioned he had some suggestions. I am indeed into RPGs, and I have several on my list I plan on getting to, Ys being one of them. Also, I'm still open to suggestions, as long as the game is accessible without too much trouble and I have time (keep in mind, I have a HUGE collection of older games; if it was released for NES, SNES, GameBoy/GBC/GBA, or Sega Genesis in America, I almost guarantee I have it).

2.) I noticed that I've only posted reviews of games I've enjoyed a lot. I think it's only fair to post a review of a game I thought was completely mediocre. Ys III fits the bill for being both an (action) RPG and a mediocre one at that.

So, there you have it. Tomorrow, look forward to a review of a game I consider to be totally, completely, and utterly average. To close, here's a picture of Nic Cage as Pee Wee Herman, courtesy of one of the most hilarious blogs I've ever seen on Blogspot, Nic Cage as Everyone.

I would watch this movie...just sayin'.


  1. Interesting!

    Givin u some daily love! :)

  2. daily love :)

  3. Copy paste comments are copy paste.

    There seems to be a direct correlation here...the more time I put in on any given post, the less copy/paste comments I get. The opposite is also true, apparently.

    Hooray for complete disinterest!

  4. If the review isn't good your ass is grass, son.

  5. Glad you like old school games man :)

    and wow at 6am o.0 thats a bit too early for me

  6. Nicholas Cage's face fits in with just about anything XD

  7. lol the pic is hilarious.
    Also I looked into Ogre Battle 64 and I'm def going to pic it up at some point. I have every N64 game on my computer, but they are often glitchy, so once I pay my rent I might pick Ogre Batte, Jet Force Gemini, and Perfect Dark up.

    Looking forward to the Ys review dude

  8. "I say we kill 'im!"
    "I say we let him go..."

  9. Spelled correctly, haha!

    I know this is kind of late but here are a few ideas of RPG games (and others) that I happened to like and would love to see you review them!

    Dragon Warrior 1-4 - NES (RPG)
    Little Nemo: Dream Master - NES (Platformer)
    Chrono CROSS - PS1 (RPG)
    Nintendo World Cup - NES (Sports game)

    My big one is the dragon warrior series... since I'm such a nut with that game. Favorite game series, still playing it since I was 5 (24 now). I have a few other ideas but these were the mores interesting games I played.
