The Job System [25 Jul 2012|02:16pm]

[ mood | geeky ]

It might be next to impossible to find jobs in the real world, but in the video game world it's quite easy. This post I wrote on my WordPress is about the job system in the Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest series.

Question for everybody who knows alot about Ultima 4. Where is the rune of Valor? Every walkthrough I ever read online says its in a northwestern tower of Jhelome and I can't find this tower. Where is it?

Chrono Trigger Retro Game Review [05 Oct 2011|01:54am]


Retro review for the beloved computer roleplaying videogame Chrono Trigger (1995) for the SNES / SFC by Square. This version is the Playstation re-release that was part of the Final Fantasy Chronicles (2001) bundle with FF4.

Chrono Trigger was created by Square's "Dream Team" division, which was led by Hironobu Sakaguchi (who created the Final Fantasy series). The game was written by scenario writers, Yuji Hori (creator of the Dragon Quest games) and Masato Kato (later directing both Radical Dreamers and Chrono Cross; wrote much of Xenogears and XenoSaga I & II), and character designer Akira Toriyama (of Dr. Slump, Dragon Ball and also pretty well known for his Dragon Quest concept art). All of the game's music was composed primarily by Yasunori Mitsuda (later known for his breathtaking music in Xenogears, Crono Cross, and XenoSaga) under the watchful eye of Nobuo Uematsu (the best known Final Fantasy music composer).

As a result of this combination of legendary talent, Chrono Trigger is often regarded as one of the best games for the Super Nintendo / Super Famicom.

Chapters of the Chosen Revisited [22 Feb 2009|09:08pm]

[ mood | bitter ]

Having played through the first four chapters of Dragon Quest IV for the DS, I've decided to post some of my thoughts on them. I've played all the way through the game on the NES, but there are a few changes for the DS version. I'm going to mention both the changes and my thoughts on the chapters in general. Each chapter brings in at least one new main character, explains how they came to be involved in the central quest, and reveals a little bit more of the world and the overarching plot. They vary in length, but none of the four is very long. The DS version starts out with a brief scene of the main hero, unlike the original, which had you name the hero and then basically forget about it until the fifth chapter.

It's a Zelda marathon streaming live. For charity. Donate and help the kids.

The charity gets games and toys for children being hospitalized. It's a great cause and lots of fun watching, donate and cheer the boys on.

On the subject of FFL2. I tried Google.com to see if I can find maps of dungeons and stuff from this game, does anybody have the walkthrough booklet that came with the game that has the maps in it? If so can you scan them and post them here?

Anybody who does this wins 1,000 internets.

Star Ocean 2 glitches? [19 Aug 2006|12:58pm]

I'm playing Star Ocean 2nd story and I'm noticing in certain areas like caves where loading times are often like 5 minutes or sometimes I get a black screen of doom forever.

The game isn't scratched, so what could be causing it?
