Hyrule Warriors: Age Of Calamity Review – An Unexpected Zelda Prequel (Kinda)

When Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity was first announced, I was a little skeptical. I loved Breath of the Wild, even if it wasn't my favorite Legend of Zelda game. A prequel sounded cool -but musou games are a mixed bag. I'd never played the first Hyrule Warriors game, even…

What PS5 Pre-Orders Taught Me About Friendship

Okay, so PlayStation 5 pre-orders were kind of a mess. But amidst all the chaos, confusion, excitement, and anger that came with PS5 pre-orders, I learned a valuable lesson about friendship. Cue the sappy, moral-at-the-end-of-the-story music here if you want. But I really mean it. PS5 pre-orders taught me a…

I Played Dungeons & Dragons With My Wife And Our Four-Year-Old: This Is What I Learned

I recently received the Dungeons & Dragons Starter Set from a work promotion. It seemed like the perfect time to start a family campaign, especially considering all the social distancing we've been practicing. There was just one small hitch: the only people I could play the game with was my…

Dragon Quest X Artworks: The Art of Astoltia (Book Review)

Hey, I'm a sucker for art books. The last time I counted, I had something like fifty video game art books on my shelf–a good chunk of them from Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy, and Xeno games. And since I love art books so much, and since Dragon Quest is my…

Fragments of a Forgotten Past: Why I Was Wrong About Dragon Quest VII

A little over a year ago, I played Dragon Quest VII for the first time. I found the 3DS version to be slow, so I started up the PS1 version (which was supposedly even slower) just to see if it grabbed me more. It didn't. In fact, I struggled with…

How to Subscribe to Dragon Quest X

Since I wrote about how to play Dragon Quest X on the Switch for free, and then how to keep playing once “Easy Play” is over without losing your character data, this time around I wanted to show folks how to subscribe to the MMO. Step One – Purchase the…

Dragon Quest VII Art and Yuji Horii Interview

Recently, I purchased an official Dragon Quest VII guidebook from Viz. It's completely in Japanese (which I can't read), but it did feature an interview with Yuji Horii at the beginning. Unlike a lot of posts, where I talk about my thoughts on the games, this is just kinda me…
