E3's teasers
June 11, 2019

Besides Final Fantasy 7 Remake, E3 has been showing off some nice, nice titles which are gonna make 2019-2020 great in gaming. Some are seuels and others reimaginings, but all awesome in my humble opinion.

Luigi's Mansion 3-
To be honest I never knew there was a part 2 to begin with but I am nbot complaining that Mario's timid brother doesn't get another game of his own. For the looks of it, it seems more of the same with little to add into it, but this is just a teaser of a game Nintendo is worked on so I am very hopeful more stuff will be added as it progresses.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake IGN Boss fight clip
June 11, 2019

So we have given glimpses of the FF7 Remake in trailers and some gameplay implemented as IGN shows on this clip. My thoughts? Well, it looks great, the whole rendition of the popular game with contemporary graphics does indeed makes justice, so is the dubbing in English. However I am not too much of a fan regarding its new battle system although it does make some sense given how Square-Enix creates their FF games nowadays. Another bit I am not too fond of is that characters here talk *a lot,* and I sure hope its not in every other battle other than boss fights if possible. Again, this may not be the same opinion of all who have watched said gameplay, so this will be my own opinion of it. The remake does look good, it might just be what Square-Enix needs to do in future FF games, and

The Double Dragon 3 Curse
June 04, 2019

While this third chapter on the Double Dragon series was not as bad as some may think, it has been the least liked sequel out of the arcade trilogy, and also on console adaptations. The game was such a distant departure from the games that preceded it and while it had some positive quirks, there is no denying that it could be considered the black sheep of the series overall in all aspects.

Current RPGs playing
May 30, 2019

Oh man, I am so trying to catch up on games I have either saved on PS2 and or emulation. As stated before, I could not get into my PSX emulation library because said emulator refuses to work with this crappy Desktop PC I could barely afford to acquire, so I am starting *anew* with said RPGs I was trying to finish there. Luckily, those on other emulators including SNES and GBA were intact so I can resume my quest in accomplishing said games. So far, these are games I am currently going through:

On PS2

Final Fantasy 10

Final Fantasy 12

Legend of Legia 2

Wild Arms 3

On PSX

Chrono Trigger

Beyond The Beyond

Final Fantasy VII

Dragon Warrior

On SNES

Feda Emblem of Justice

Castlevania
May 18, 2019

Oh boy.

Oh boy!

I cannot contain my excitement over the fact that I get to finally experience Netflix's animated Castlevania series. Now on its talked 3rd Season, it had surprised many expectations from all those who experienced it when it came out couple years back. I am very lucky I was able to check the first season (a whole total of 4 episodes) on DVD after finding out the city's library catalog had a copy somewhere around. As it is, I do not have the budget to get such luxuries which had me blue until I was able to at least check the series this way.

Finally finished Breath of Fire
May 15, 2019

After the various tumultuous problems I had to deal with, was able to go back to games I was currently finishing and BoF for SNES was one. I will point out Jade, the boss you face before Tyr was more of a problem than the final battle I faced. I would challenge Tyr once again without having to use Agni to see how difficult she would really be, but I can say with Jade having a one hit spell instant kill really did a number on me the entire time I tried defeated him. Even with the ultimate spell to beat her, it took quite a number of hits to bring Tyr down. She had quite the healthy number of HP as a final boss.

It was a good run with a great game. Will go on playing the sequel soon and get to the other two sequels on the PSX.

Double Dragon V- An Overview
May 11, 2019

Double Dragon V was published by Tradewest who was responsible for the first game in the series adapted for NES, so I guess it would count as "canon" if you accept that fact. Released for various systems, DDV was made into a fighting game rather than a beat'em up as most of the games in the series are known for. This was not the first time a Double Dragon fighting game was made however.
