Final Fantasy vs. Dragon Quest: The Immortal Debate.
December 22, 2005

For years, Japanese and American nerds have been debating over which RPG series is the best: Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest? To settle this argument once and for all, I am going to objectively evaluate the titles of each series and formulate a conclusion from the data. Here we go:

Final Fantasy:
1- Crap; GBA remake was all right.
2- Crap.
3- Good.
4- Crap.
5- Good.
6- Timeless classic.
7- Not bad.
8- Crap.
9- Good.
10- Crap.
11- Crap.
12- Looks promising.

Dragon Quest:
1- Crap; SNES remake was all right.
2- Crap.
3- Good.
4- Timeless classic.
5- Crap.
6- Not bad.
7- Crap.
8- Looks promising.

Let us evaluate the score:

FF - 4 good titles, 1 not so bad one, a decent remake of the original, and an upcoming game that looks promising.

Joe's Top Ten
December 10, 2005

'cause everyone else is doing it!

1) Back to the Future

This movie was so awesome that Reagan used its last line in a part of his 1986 State of the Union address. Also, it spawned two badical sequels.

2) Superman

I never get tired of watching the opening credits. Also, the grandaddy of great comic book to movie translations.

3) T2

The standard by which all sequels should be measured. (To hell with The Empire Strikes Back!)

4) 101 Dalmations (Animated; not the shitty live action one)

101 percent better than any Cowboy Bebop or Akira.

5) Gone with the Wind

"Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn."

6) The Incredibles

"THAT WAS TOTALLY WICKED!"

7) Corpse Bride

Some criticism for Nintendo Wifi Connection.
November 21, 2005

I've had a long enough period of time to be able to effectively test out Mario Kart's online gameplay. I have to admit that Nintendo seriously cut some corners. For example:

A) The lack of options. You can't choose how many players you want to compete to against, how many races you're going to have, what class you're going to compete in, and whether to disable certain pick-ups. Delusional Nintendo fans have been quoted as saying that having less options is better because it makes setting up an online match a simple process. Well, perhaps in the next game Nintendo should do away with the bothersome chore of picking a character and a course. After all, casual gamers don't like having to pick a racer because it's too complicated; right?

A complaint.
November 11, 2005

I think it's just plain wrong that a Fleaman can kill you in 1-2 hits in Curse of Darkness's crazy mode. I don't mind getting murdered by an Armor Knight or Executor, but Konami has crossed the line with Fleamen.
