Top Anticipated Games: #gamersonwatch

With E3 at a close, I must make a confession.  While I have certainly heard of this important gaming event, I admit that I don’t typically pay it much heed, and any news I do hear comes from random people or articles on the Internet.  Nevertheless, I have a short list for you all in…

Final Fantasy VII: Finally Finished!

(Images Captured By Hatmonster) Well it’s finished. After seven years of trying to get through the game only to be distracted away from it time and again, it’s finally done. I’ve finally beaten Final Fantasy VII! It took over 45 hours spread over a month of dedicating normal play hours (as well as sneaking in…

The Inanities of Video Game Bosses (Created by Square, I Mean)

Some time ago, I replayed “Kingdom Hearts”, a game I had gone through two times prior, and yet, for some reason, this was the first time that something struck me. Video game bosses are weird. Not just the concept (why are they even called “bosses” to begin with?), but…you know what, have you ever beaten…

Finishing Final Fantasy VII: June Progress Report

Images captured by Hatmonster Well it’s almost the end of June so I figured now would be a good time for the first Final Fantasy VII update. I’m happy to report that the game is moving along nicely. More quickly than I would expected given how life in the working world tends to function. As…

Finishing Final Fantasy VII

Image by Flickr User: Borgs Dalisay (CC) Final Fantasy VII is one of my absolute favorite games from the good ol’ PSOne, probably number…4 after Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage, Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon, Crash Bandicoot 2: Wrath of Cortex, and Crash Bandicoot: Warped. (What can I say? I like my classic platformers!) I love…

Glitches That Involve Freezing and the Rage They Cause

Today’s post is the last of my little glitch series, until I experience enough new ones to write another post about them.  Won’t that be nice?  Ahem, this time I discuss freezing, quite possibly the worst glitch ever.  You can’t work through it.  It just happens, and there’s nothing you can do.  Nothing.  Games never…

Merry Listmas: Things I Dislike About Games I Like

Hello, everyone, and welcome to the duck’s first Listmas list.  I enjoy lists, whether it’s keeping track of all my games (in order from best to worst, of course) and realizing that my collection might be getting a wee bit enormous or marking things off a list and knowing that I’m getting one step closer…

My “Deserted Island” Games — Playstation/Playstation 2 edition

It wasn’t until I met my husband that the PlayStation came in to my life.  He was knee-deep in Sony territory when we met. Though I was knee-deep into Nintendo, we somehow still managed to make things work.  Anyway, he had amassed a large collection of PS games, some of which he didn’t play very…
