Throwback Bit Thursday: The Legend of Dragoon

The Legend of Dragoon has been one of the strangest titles that I have ever reviewed. The Playstation Japanese Role-Playing game, released in the year 2000, isn’t a really a special RPG, but it is the one game that I felt was the definition of “Pedestrian” when I first reviewed it, and yet, somehow, it […]

Throwback Bit Thursday: Turok: Dinosaur Hunter

  The Nintendo 64 was the first home console capable of delivering great First Person Shooting experiences. While the PlayStation (and Sega Saturn) would have some  first person shooters, by comparison, most (if not all) were subpar when stacked against the games that the Nintendo 64 was running in that particular genre. The Nintendo 64 […]

Phil Spencer: Not Interested in Outselling Sony (Or Nintendo)

It seems like there are Phil Spencer news every other day of the week, and that’s because there are Phil Spencer news every other day of the week. With Sony and Nintendo execs being pretty hermetic about their upcoming projects and plans, the gaming industry has to thank the outspoken Phil Spencer for keeping us […]

Throwback Bit Thursday: Thousand Arms

The Golden Era of Japanese Role-Playing Games during the original PlayStation days produced many a great RPG on a consistent basis. It seemed then, that every month a new JRPG AAA title would arrive at store shelves for players to buy and immerse themselves for dozens of hours. During this period, in between the Final […]

Xbox Series X to Launch in November but Halo Infinite Delayed Until 2021

We are not surprised. Frankly, we at the Never-Ending Realm were as disappointed as every Halo fan across the world with 343’s July 23rd Halo Infinite’s reveal. Halo Infinite’s postponement does not affect Microsoft’s Xbox Series X’s Launch date, as the company announced yesterday a November launch for its Next-Gen console. The postponement might be […]

Throwback Bit Thursday: The Granstream Saga

  1998’s The Granstream Saga, is not a remarkable game, it was (even 1998) a deeply flawed action RPG, that featured many good (if not great) ideas that were not executed properly. Shade (the developers) left us instead, with what in my opinion is one of the most glaring examples of wasted potential in an […]

Throwback Bit Thursday: Wild Arms

Many will remember Squaresoft’s Final Fantasy VII (1997) as the first great Japanese Role Playing game for the PlayStation. However, a few months earlier, April 1997 to be exact, Wild Arms arrived on Sony’s debut system with a great JRPG experience for fans to enjoy. Wild Arms holds an 83 Gamerankings (The 90s Metacritic) rating. […]

Top Ten Greatest ‘The Legend of Zelda’ Games of All Time

The Legend of Zelda is one of the most successful video game series of all time. Here, I rank the series from the ‘worst’ (is there a bad Zelda game?) entry to the best entry. I’m obviously excluding the dreadful Phillips CD-i Zelda releases, as the creation rights were licensed to Phillips by Nintendo as […]

Throwback Bit Thursday: WCW/NWO Revenge

  Ah, 1998, my freshman year of High School. What good time it was for a 13-14 year old teenager to be alive. 3-D gaming was still in its infancy, making every new 3-D game on the Nintendo 64 an excitable prospect (even pedestrian games were interesting at the time). It was a magical time […]
