Where They Drew The Line – Squaresoft

Ever since the original Final Fantasy, right at the ass end of the 80s, I was a huge Squaresoft fan. And why wouldn’t I be? They heavily inspired me ever since Final Fantasy and kept the hits coming with games like Secret of Mana, Chrono Trigger, Parasite Eve, Breath of Fire (they partnered with Capcom […]

Wonderpod Episode 114

Another Saturday Wonderpod. We came down with a massive goat infection Thursday night so the show had to be postponed. They say the show must go on, but whoever said it never tangled with a goat. Good news, the show isn’t near as weird as this introduction. The first show after something like E3 is […]

Xenoblade Chronicles

General Overview So the much hyped up and whined over RPG of all time finally breaks onto American shores, but was the wait worth it? Actually, yes. And no, I’m not just saying that because it’s a solid RPG for the Wii, I’m saying that because it’s actually a pretty damn good RPG with all […]

Final Fantasy 12

General Overview Square Enix tosses tradition aside yet again with a single player MMO as an actual entry in the Final Fantasy series. The characters and story are pretty shitty, but the license point system, open world aspect, and semi-realtime combat may be enough to win over some diehard S-E loyalists. Plus, it looks and […]

Super Robot Taisen OG Saga – Endless Frontier

General Overview What other game can you play as ridiculously big busted anime babes, Xenosaga’s KOS-MOS included, beating the hell out of robots with tons of over the top juggling combos and super combos with an emphasis on a hit multiplier and tag outs AND claim it’s an RPG? Seriously, if there’s an answer to […]

GODDAMMIT…Seiken Densetsu 3

One of the few Squaresoft games that has never even attempted to be remade is also easily one of the best. Now sure, I could’ve talked about the obvious Terranigma, Mother 3, Wonder Project J, Adventures of Hourai High, or even the Front Mission games that never reached American soil, but instead I’d love to […]

You Love It, I Hate It – Chrono Cross

I’m hoping this will be a new series I can get going and I’m starting with something that, as will be a trend in this series, people seem to universally love, but I just can’t “get:” Chrono Cross. Now initially, I didn’t like this game because it didn’t feel enough like Chrono Trigger. I halfway […]

RPG of the Year – 2006

Holy shit damn, what a huge year! 57 games! And yes, there was a Sega Genesis game released this year. This is also one of those awkward years where a lot of developers were jumping to the new systems while other ones were still very unsure and wanting to develop stuff on the PS2, GBA, […]

RPG of the Year – 2004

You think last year was a big year? Ha ha ha! This year, there are 49 games! Madness! Let’s do this thang!

RPG of the Year – 2003

This is a HUGE year. There are 45 games! This is also the first year we’re seeing a mobile game on the list. While you’d think this would make it hard for me to choose, just a simple glance at this list and I can already tell what’s what. Read on to find out!
