Final Fantasy and its Evolution

Before continuing I think it's important to understand my history with the Final Fantasy Series.  It started with IV.  Playing as the Dark Knight turned Paladin, and the allies that he gains and loses throughout the story of crystals, summoned monsters and the Big Whale.  For a good part of my life, the go to...

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate

Venturing from the full 3d roaming of Arkham Asylum, Blackgate offers a slightly different 2.5 dimensional gameplay. Blackgate takes place before Arkham Asylum in the overall timeline of the games but after Arkham Origins. While we haven't played Origins itself, Blackgate is built sufficiently enough to stand on it's own. While the games resembles a... Continue Reading →

Batman: Arkham Asylum

Final Fantasy and its Paradigm

Final Fantasy XIII at first glance, does not fail to impress.  Enter on a train, traveling at a high speed through a canyon.  The camera pans across several robed people and its made clear that something is about to happen.  A guard enters the room on an apparent patrol and the train goes through an...
