The obligatory bashing Let me get this out of the way: Final Fantasy: All the Bravest is a cheap cash-in that tarnishes its franchise name, developer/publisher Square-Enix (SE), and the economy of mobile titles. If you're looking for an article that harps on the negatives of the title, there are plenty of others out there.… Continue reading In defence of Final Fantasy: All the Bravest
The most difficult games to review – or talk about really – are the mediocre ones. They're titles that generally don't score high in traditional reviews and they're also not outright awful. Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion is one of those mediocre games and one of the most disappointed titles I've ever played.

It's difficult to choose the best PlayStation 1 (PS1) game of all time. Titles like Final Fantasy VII, Metal Gear Solid, and Resident Evil 2 almost always dominate players' lists. However, the console had an incredible amount of hidden gems (I'll talk about Tombi 2 one day) that are often overlooked.

I'd promised myself that one day I'd Platinum it in order to get most out of the R1300 I spent on the Deluxe Editon, which included the incoherent Kingsglaive tie-in movie. Last night, I finally grabbed the last of the… Continue reading I finally Platinumed Final Fantasy XV and it’s still disappointing
Along with video games, novels and animated movies, I love board games. I'm not talking about Monopoly or Snakes & Ladders; I'm talking about what classifies as 'geek crack.' The love. The passion. I discovered this passion around 2009 or 2010. I decided to start an online board games store as a passive income for… Continue reading I love board games, but don’t have the time or space
I'm a collector. I collect the things I want to consume, the games I want to play and the books I want to read. I don't, however, collect for the sake of completing a set. I don't keep things sealed. Over the past few months, I've been drifting away from Facebook and Twitter and have… Continue reading I don’t understand sealed collections
