Why I won't be finishing Final Fantasy 14
May 02, 2016

Ö Well to be specific, you canít really Ďfinishí an MMO since theyíre generally a never-ending game but you know what Iím getting at. Let me preface this by stating that I donít think FF14 is bad or is a game of poor quality; I actually recommend it in terms of an MMORPG when something like World of Warcraft has overstayed its welcome and refuses to get with the times. FF14 gives players the freedom to play any class with a few mere button presses, to gain experience in a variety of ways and be an enjoyable game to return to. However I wonít be returning to FF14, and to that I Ďblameí the recent expansion Heavensward and the narrative that youíre forced to go through.

Dinoracha's 2015 Game of the Year list
February 12, 2016

10. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain: Whether or not this is the final entry in the Metal Gear Solid franchise, it doesnít change the fact that while this is an excellent action-stealth game, it makes for an awful Metal Gear Solid game. Despite its numerous flaws (that shouldnít have raised their heads in such a highly anticipated game by such a well renowned studio), I played the hot hell out of Phantom Pain, Fulton extracting anything that moved or had value for my Mother Base. This couldíve been my pick for game of the year, but too many annoyances kept me from tooting its horn on the mountain tops.

40 Hours in - Final Fantasy 14
December 14, 2015

MMOs come in two overarching flavors; paid subscription and free to play (F2P). The latter is notorious for being shovelware trash in some instances, while others have poor business models with mountains of premium content that requires real cash after the initial download, and often enhances your character over other playersí, which ruins the experience if you arenít willing to shell out the coin to power up. Paid subscriptions are more closely scrutinized however since they require you to make an initial investment and then recurring payments to be allowed further play time, and burning that money away on a product that ends up being poor or unenjoyable has an even harsher sting to it than just burning away your free time. World of Warcraft may be the reigning champion of paid subscripti

40 Hours in - Fallout 4
December 08, 2015

Iím not sure how long itís going to take before I finish Fallout 4, if ever. Iím hardly even close to finishing the main story, I have a dozen plus quests I havenít even started, a few Iíve begun but have yet to complete, settlements Iíve yet to start constructing and building upon, and this is all without even touching a single mod or finding all the locations. Itís a huge game with a silly amount of stuff to do, but the debates on whether itís a better/worse game than the previous Bethesda Falloutís is even sillier to humor. I would argue that 4 is graphically superior and plays better, but at the same time it has more bugs and glitches than both 3 and New Vegas combined. Iíve yet to encounter anything game-breaking, but the sheer number of goofy hiccups has left me shaking my head in be
