Throwback Bit Thursday: The Bard’s Tale

Very few games, especially ‘average’ ones, have managed to leave a lasting impression on me nearly two decades after I last played them. The Bard’s Tale, however, managed to do just that.

Throwback Bit Thursday: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Throwback Bit Thursday: Radiata Stories

Radiata Stories is Tri Ace’s mostly forgotten PS2 IP. It is surprising that 16 years after its release I am talking about this game in a solemn manner.
