    10 Tactical RPGs You May Not Have Heard Of, But Are Actually Pretty Decent

    Turn-Based Tactical RPGs, or Simulation RPGs as dubbed in Japan, is my favourite video game genre, no questions asked. There is just something about methodically ruining an opponent’s army without the stress that comes with the genre’s Real Time counterparts. The 90s saw the genre’s establishing fathers: Shining Force, Fire Emblem, Front Mission, Final Fantasy […]

    The Theme Songs of Final Fantasy

    Who’s seen the newest trailer for Final Fantasy XV? “Get hype” is what I’d like to say but if I were to summarize the premise so far—four guys “bro-ad” (bro + road) trip it up to have the lead character, Noctis, reclaim his rightful throne.
