How Persona proves age ratings are nonsense

21 October 2015 by , No Comments

I’ve been playing quite a lot of Persona Q lately. It’s an oddly addictive little game with an adorable visual style and a tonne of great continuity nods and gags for fans of Persona 3 and 4. In many ways, I like it better than its originals. Sure, the story is a lot weaker and […]

Final Fantasy blamed for murder

28 January 2013 by , No Comments

The phrase “The enemy of my enemy is my friend” seems rather appropriate to define my stance on this matter. While I haven’t enjoyed a Square game in years (discounting remakes), I feel obliged to rush to their aid in this battle: if only because the other side is forehead-slappingly stupid.
