  • Excerpt: In this day and age of stupidly easy RPGS, epic yarns, creative battle methods and deep character growth systems along with other complexities, Dragon Quest is a dramatic throwback to a much simpler time.

  • Conclusion: To all RPGs a villain must be born, and in this case he’s a doozy…a jester by the name of Dhoulmagus whom I love for two reasons; he is a complete loon in the most likeable way (akin to Nicholson’s Joker, say) and he’s wonderfully creative.

  • Excerpt: I’ve spent almost my entire life in Oregon, a state whose populace has a reputation for being both laid back and outdoorsy. While I’ve definitely mastered the laid back part, I never quite got a handle on the outdoors thing. I love the scenery around here, but I usually prefer not to be in it.
