Review: Final Fantasy XVI

My love for the Final Fantasy series is no secret. I’ve been a fan since the NES days. My entire summer of 1990 was spent exploring every nook and cranny of the original game. At the time, it was unlike anything I had ever played. But, compare that first title in the series to this latest release and wow! What...

Review: Mafia (Definitive Edition)

For my readers who follow my backlog reviews, I need to apologize. As you may suspect, my attention has recently been distracted by a handful of new blockbuster games and this has derailed my progress when it comes to grinding out older titles. But fear not! I haven’t been completely derelict on my duty of playing classic games – or...

Dungeons & Dragons: Bigby Presents – Glory of the Giants

It’s been a long wait for the next official D&D product to drop! My last review for Keys from the Golden Vault was all the way back in March and since that time I’ve filled in the gaps by reviewing some good third-party releases. But, the wait is finally over and Bigby Presents: Glory of the Giants¬†is here. I’ll admit,...

Nerd Fuel: Donut Shop – Cinnamon Toast Crunch Latte

Usually when it comes to my coffee reviews I tend to stick with pretty basic products. Single origin, blends, and even flavored coffees. Very rarely do I venture into territory that some might consider “gimmicky”. However, the latest refresh at my local grocery store has brought about the introduction of some interesting new options that I just couldn’t pass up....

Review: Diablo IV

Rarely do I stop working my way through my backlog to play a new release. However, there are certain franchises that I simply cannot resist. Diablo is one of those. When I started this website over a decade ago, the Diablo games were some of the first titles that I took the time to review. Diablo III launched shortly after...

FFXIV: Version 6.4 Update

It’s that time again! A new major update to Final Fantasy XIV is here and, even though it took me a bit longer than normal, I’m here to break it down and share my thoughts. As far as version updates go, this patch is pretty standard. All of the usual updates and expected fixes are present and we really don’t...

Superman II

One my biggest regrets when it comes to this blog is that I don’t take enough time to focus on the movies and TV shows that I really enjoy. That’s something I want to improve as time goes on. The last time I wrote about one of my favorite childhood films was around four months ago when I discussed the...

Review: Chrono Cross

Ever since I played Chrono Trigger earlier this year, I’ve been extremely curious to see just how Square was going to try to top that experience. For me, Chrono Trigger represented the peak of 16-bit era JRPGs. It had all of the elements that I look for in an RPG and it delivered them with flawless perfection. With that in...
