I’ve finally finished all of the main story modes for Persona 4 Arena, my Christmas Gift this year, and it was definitely entertaining. Whether or not it was good, though…that’s another question. It’s such a weird prospect to analyze a fighting game’s story in general. It’s not impossible…it’s not even unpleasant. As long as you […]


A few days ago, I saw a Kotaku post about an artist’s interpretation of Zelda by way of Prince of Persia. I thought the art was quite lovely and the idea a little intriguing, but I left it alone after that. Tonight, however, I have to admit that the idea has gripped me quite a bit […]

Last night, I finally finished Xenoblade Chronicles. It had reached a point where I wasn’t just doing the side quests to be a completionist, I was actively working to forestall the end of the game. Never mind that I had reached maximum level with one of my characters, and was close with every other. Also […]


We’ve come to the final Joker episode of the series, and it is…decent. Not his worst episode, but not his best either, not by a long shot. There are good moments in here, and some very interesting ideas. But unfortunately, much of the plot relies on both Batman and Robin being very stupid and failing […]
