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. It was an average game that managed to leave a lasting (and somewhat positive) image of itself in my memories, despite its flaws.… Continue reading Throwback Bit Thursday: The Bard’s Tale

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. We would never receive a sequel, and given how the JRPG genre is no longer ‘in’ with mainstream gamers, it is likely that we never will. Radiata… Continue reading Throwback Bit Thursday: Radiata Stories

So, lets go back almost twenty years as we remember Hironobu Sakaguchi’s ‘Final’ Fantasy Fantasy. When Final Fantasy Mattered Big Time These days, almost no one ever… Continue reading Throwback Bit Thursday: Final Fantasy X

Throwback Bit Thursday: Tales of Legendia

The Tales series, against all odds, remains one of the few long running J-RPG series still standing tall on home consoles. With 17 main entries, some titles will receive more of a spotlight than others. One title that is not often talked about when discussing the series is the PS2’s Tales of Legendia. Personally, Legendia… Continue reading Throwback Bit Thursday: Tales of Legendia

Throwback Bit Thursday: Suikoden IV

The Suikoden series. The mere mention of the name “Suikoden” will draw hardcore JRPG fans out of the woods, and into epic ramblings about how great the first two titles were. Personally, the third iteration of the series remains my favorite one.   Suikoden V would end up being the last title in the long running… Continue reading Throwback Bit Thursday: Suikoden IV

Throwback Bit Thursday: Star Ocean 3: Till the End of Time

I have been a fan of the Star Ocean series since Star Ocean (2): The Second Story on the PlayStation 1. Since then, I have played a few more entries, as the series has lost some of its appeal lately (at least to me). I have Star Ocean: The Last Hope to blame for my… Continue reading Throwback Bit Thursday: Star Ocean 3: Till the End of Time
