Crisis Core is the oft-maligned prequel to Final Fantasy VII, one of the most beloved games of all time. Released ten years after FF7 and transpiring several years before FF7, this game stars FF7 bit-player Zack Fair. A high ranking member of SOLDIER with a doomed destiny, Zack is a real hero here; he is a selfless and kind character who stands as a stark contrast to FF7's far less likable Cloud Strife. On that note - Why is "SOLDIER" all caps? Is it an acronym? Sadly, even after playing this game I don't have an answer.
FF7 has achieved legendary status in the history of video games. It was an epic story that followed an intrepid band as they set out to save the world, stopping only occasionally to milk Tifa.
A few notes here before the post gets underway. First, there was a significant lack of posts in April because, well... I just had too much to do. It's time to shake things up around here, though. Also, those of you unlucky enough to read The Cautionary Tale while it was up might notice that the post is gone now. That's because, as the worst thing I've ever written, it could and probably would cost me my job at some point. It also has no redeeming value and, frankly, sucks, so I took it down. Alright, on with the post.
One of the best games on the Sega Genesis, Mega Man: The Wily Wars includes the first three games in the series with revamped graphics and sound. When I heard that the game has additional content in the form of Wily Tower, I had to hit that. As the kids say. This post is all about Wily Tower; join me for a look at this exclusive and forgotten part of the Mega Man verse.
