Growlanser: Heritage of War is Coming to PSN

When Growlanser: Heritage of War released on the PS2, I had ignored it. Unfortunately, the release of Growlanser Generations had been on blue bottom discs and my old PS2 hated playing the blue bottomed discs. So I’d sort of ignored the franchise after a bit of buyers remorse. Then I reviewed Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time in 2012 and loved it. I loved it so much that I would award it my Game of the Year that year. Well now I [...]

Recently, Anita Sarkeesian called Ico sexist, and while I’m not here to discuss her point of view or her series Tropes vs. [...]

[Infinite Themes] The Good Old Emergent Game – My Magical Rookie Season in NHL 2002

Game 1: Edmonton Oilers vs. Vancouver Canucks ‘Mike Eaton’ is a newly created character using NHL 2002 who has my birthday and physical dimensions. I am a 29 year-old rookie in the National Hockey League playing defense for my hometown Edmonton Oilers.
