Re: Please Rate This Review: Journey Second Opinion

Hi Li-Ion,

Wow, Rob. There’s a lot to process here.

In terms of overall writing, it comes across a little bit like a blog post. I certainly don’t mean any offense by that – blog posts are fine. What I mean...

Re: Please Rate This Review: Monster Tale Second Opinion

Good point about the "Low". I made that more concise and smoothed over a few edges.

Hey Richard,

It's funny because my original version had the paragraph explaining my "low" point. In the process of whittling down the review so it's not too long--and because it involves getting a...

Re: Please Rate This Review: Monster Tale Second Opinion

I keep re-posting this review and it appears just fine for a few minutes, but after some time it keeps getting cut off at the 2nd paragraph or so. Anyone else ever seen this problem?

Podcast Episode Suggestion: Nintendo's Big Three

What made these franchises so great? When were their primes? What's wrong with them now and how can they be fixed?

I don't read a lot of forums so maybe this has been beaten to death, but I'd like...

Podcast Episode Idea: Significant Other Q&A

Re: Please Rate This Review: Vagrant Story, and its many lessons for uninspired JRPG

Hey Kami,

I don't speak from a position of authority, and I think a staff member could help clarify the site's mission here. I will say that based on the countless reviews and articles I've read...

Hey Kamiboy,

As someone who played a lot of JRPGs growing up (Dragon Quests, Final Fantasies, etc.) but has completely given up on them now, I find your article interesting. I hope you don’t...
