A Brief Look At World of Final Fantasy

A brief look, a quick gander. This game is quite interesting as it turns out, combining characters/places from the entire Final Fantasy series and adding a dreamlike aesthetic to all of it.

Predator (NES, 1987)

Predator was one of my favorite movies from the 80's, and it's a safe bet that I would have gotten the game if I'd had an NES as a kid. Yeah, it's another T2 For Game Boy situation. So how terrible is it?

Yakuza Kiwami: Boss Fights

More boss videos, more liner notes. This time it's Yakuza Kiwami, which unfortunately can't hold a candle to Yakuza Zero's boss lineup. It's still a decent game, and pays off the story that Yakuza Zero builds up.

Yakuza Zero: Boss Fights

Yakuza Zero is a great game, and the strongest point might well be the boss fights. There are some sweet boss fights to be had here, to say the least. This post contains every boss fight video, with some liner notes.

Modern Assassin's Creed

Assassin's Creed Origins is really really cool ya'll. I'm a big fan of this series when they can stick to the fundamentals and avoid microtransactions / things like Facebook connectivity to Facebook Live or Facebook Just Collectin' Information or whatever. Also featured here: Assassin's Creed Odyssey. With new updates for 2019.

Secret of Mana #10 - Carousel

There's no getting into the Mana Fortress without first going to Pure Land (or Mana Holy Land, as it's called in the original Japanese). Because you can't say "holy" in an early SNES game. Before we hit Pure Land, it's time to take a look at some of the weirder places in Secret of Mana.

Highlander: The Series 3x14 - Song of the Executioner

This episode is the beginning of a five-part arc and sorta the beginning of the second half of the series. From here on out the series really hits its stride. I think at this point the creators realized they still hadn't topped Band of Brothers from Season 1, so they...made another Band of Brothers with this episode. If that S1 episode is where the series showed what it could be if it reached its potential, this episode is where the series really starts reaching said potential.

What's the one thing that could have improved Band of Brothers? If it were a multi-parter, because wrapping up that entire story in one episode felt a bit rushed. As a result, this episode begins a new multi-parter that sends Duncan to Paris and introduces a new ancient mentor character, much like Darius was supposed to be. He might be kinda cool, we'll see.
