Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars (SNES): Shoots for the Moon, Lands Among the Stars (Detailed Review)

Super Mario RPG is a game that, when it was originally released, likely met with a lot of skepticism. Squaresoft’s RPGs are generally known as their huge sweeping tales that were not like anything that most gamers have seen at the time. Mario games, on the other hand, generally had no story beyond the typical …

Time an Eternity (PS3): One of the Most Underrated JRPGs of All Time, and Representative of the Gaming Media’s Most Potent Double Standards

Time and Eternity has always been a pretty important game in terms of the impact it had on me. I will admit that I have this strange tendency to tell when a game is overhated before playing it and such a thing will irk me despite not even having played it yet. So I admit …

The Death and Return of JRPG Update

JRPG Update is back folks… sorta. In order to make things easier on myself, I decided that some revisions needed to be made to how I would handle things, simply because I was overloaded the way that JRPG Update worked before. I tried to post weekly updates by covering as much JRPG related information as …

Amazing VGM: Voltage (Megadimension Neptunia VII)

Holy shit, how the fuck did I stay away from this series for as long as I have? I actually don’t know if I have even written about Neptunia for this blog yet, although I have mentioned it plenty of times. I absolutely adore this series, and seeing someone bashing it for being nothing but …

Amazing VGM: Demon’s Gig (Shadow Hearts)

Shadow Hearts was always an underrated series of RPGs. We do not have that many JRPGs that embrace such a dark and Gothic style outside of Shin Megami Tensei, and those games also have a high barrier for entry due to their difficulty. The original Shadow Hearts  felt very similar to PS1 era JRPGs with …

The Tenth Line (PC/PS4/Switch): A High Hurdle to Clear, but Well Worth the Price of Admission (Detailed Review)

I’ve been meaning to try and bring back my JRPG Update series for quite a while now. It was one of the few things I did that was more than just spouting my opinion, and helped provide people with useful information, but it just wore me out and was too hard to keep up with. …

Amazing VGM: Go Go Go! (Lunar: Silver Star Harmony)

This week’s VGM is the upbeat and encouraging final boss theme of Lunar: Silver Star Harmony, Go Go Go!

JRPG Update: 6/25/2017-7/2/2017

Well this week’s update was hell to put together. It turns out that these pages lag horribly when there are too many embedded videos. As such, I am unable to fully edit this article and some things will be missing, such as a few pics, , links, and the updated release chart.However, I did introduce …

JRPG Update: 5/14/2017 – 5/20/2017

This week’s update features News on Dragon Quest XI, Fire Emblem Echoes, Utawarerumono, Star Ocean 3, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, Trails of Cold Steel III, possible Final Fantasy remakes, and more.

NieR Automata: The Type of Masterpiece that you Rarely See, Especially in AAA Games (Detailed Review) (PS4/XONE/PC)

Just a heads up, the reason the review is no longer up  this site is because it is now up on Brash Games, and I figure they wouldn’t want their content hosted elsewhere. There was a lot that I had to say about this game seeing as how it is currently in my top 3 …
