The following encompasses some of my thoughts on a little bit of everything regarding video gaming. One of my goals of this blog is to share with you some of the processes I go through when writing system reviews and the development of this website.

MG’s Take: King’s Field II (PS1)     by Marriott_Guy (31-Aug-08)

The second U.S. release in this series, King’s Field II for the Sony PlayStation, published by ASCII Entertainment and developed by From Software, perfected the FP RPG genre set in its predecessor.  True to form, you are free to undertake this extensive adventure as you deem fit.  This may seem somewhat daunting to gamers who prefer a more linear approach … Read more

MG’s Take: King’s Field (PS1)     by Marriott_Guy (29-Aug-08)

One of the initial releases for the Sony PlayStation, King’s Field, published by ASCII Entertainment and developed by From Software, was a truly next-gen game for its time.  This game was the first FP RPG, set in a massive environment where you alone dictate the game’s action and events.  The primary antagonist (Alexander/you) is left completely free to choose their … Read more

Being a hardcore RPG gamer and a huge fan of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, I have to admit I was a bit reluctant to make this purchase after being disappointed in the previous downloadable content offered by Bethesda.  Sure, The Knights of the Nine did satiate my Oblivion appetite for a little while, but by no means did it … Read more

Erosion of the Gaming Skills     by Marriott_Guy (29-Aug-08)

Gaming has been a test of diligence this past week. I have been working through another go around of The Elder Scrolls III – Morrowind GOY edition on my XBox 360. I had spent roughly 20 minutes traveling all around the great world of Vvarendall to finally retrieve the awesome Skull Crusher war hammer. Right when I begin to enter … Read more

Beginnings of a Collector     by Marriott_Guy (25-Aug-08)

As most of you know, I tend to write very detailed and somewhat technical articles on various video game systems, focusing primarily on the obscure releases.  When writing one of my last system reviews, a fellow RFG staff member recommended that I add a bit more color to my reviews; to add a bit more of my personality to them. … Read more
