  • Excerpt: The Japanese-style role-playing game doesn’t lend itself well to direct sequels.

  • Excerpt: Saving the world is the family business. I’ve found that for most people, the idea of following in your parents’ footsteps usually lands you on one extreme side of the fence: you either carry on the family tradition without hesitation, or you act the rebel and want nothing to do with it.
