But I pressed the ****ing button

We've all 'blamed the pad' in anger at one time or another, but logic and acceptance usually set in once the immediate frustration has passed. I never thought I'd see it in a professional game review.

Games, games, games

And this is just a smattering of the games I expect to purchase over the fall season. So yes, once again, it's that time of year to ask: Why the #$#@ can't publishers spread the release dates for some of their big titles throughout the whole year?

Are our gaming bellies too fat, or Kojima's metaphors aren't totally nuts

Our controller has morphed—to use a Kojima-style metaphor—from a table with two chairs to a lush banquet hall, replete with different food stations, a martini bar and even that cool Greek cheese that gets lit on fire when it's brought to your table. In short, we're living in a gaming world of excess.

Azure Skies

No, the title isn't a reference to the PS1 game Azure Dreams by Konami. Rather, it's a reference to the beautifully rendered skies in Grandia III.

To Dirge or not to Dirge

I picked up Final Fantasy VII: Dirge of Cerberus last week, and that's what I've been playing over this past weekend. I wasn't sure initially that I wanted to play this game, given the negative word of mouth that it's received ever since our gaming press got their grubby mitts on the Japanese release, through to the final domestic release. As an admitted fan of Final Fantasy VII, I decided to brave Midgar once again, to see where developer Square Enix was going to take me.
