My Workload

Since I am discussing and reviewing older titles on this blog. I thought I would show you the games I have to work with right now. Also, Pink Yarn Yoshi!!!

A lot of these games I want to play through, either again, or in some rare cases, for the first time. There are still games that I don’t own that I would love to play and review at some point, so this collection is only likely to grow.

Keep in mind that for the moment, I still consider PS3 titles to be current, so I will be focusing on previous gen games first in my reviews.

If there’s anything in my collection you would like me to review, or if there are games you think I should be looking for, please send me a comment.

First Review – Rogue Galaxy

So, who am I and what am I doing?

Hello everyone,

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Kojin66, and as you may have guessed from my blog title, I like old school RPG video games. While that is one of my many Hobbies,in a lame attempt to let you all get to know me, I will tell you some of my other interests.

I have an interest in TCGs such as Force of Will, and have played a myriad of others. I am a huge Tokusatsu fan, with a heavy interest in the Kamen Rider franchise. I watch plenty of anime, and love a good board game from time to time.

With that out of the way, let’s get down to the big question: What am I going to do with this blog?

In the past few years, I have noticed a trend in current video game releases. That trend is a lack of quality control on most current-gen games. From a poor localization job, or a game flooded with bugs and glitches, to a flagrant abuse of microtransactions in high priced modern games, it just makes me think of the good ol’ days of video gaming. Sure, older titles were no stranger to a bad translation and a bug here or there, but I find that it was nowhere near as bad as things have been in the last 2-3 years.

My hope is for this blog to be a reminder to us all of RPGs from the previous generations of consoles and portables that were made, many with quality in mind. I will be reviewing games that I have played, and finished, in order to be as in depth and spoiler light as possible.

As always, when I talk about games, my opinions are just that. An opinion. I am always welcoming to other points of view and even some debate with what I write here, as long as it is polite and civil.

I own a lot of classic RPGs, and some obscure ones as well. I look forward to going through all of them, and as my collection grows, I will keep reaching for those gems.

I hope you will like what I have to say, and I should have my first review up soon. With luck, I will have something ready in a week or two. (Like I said, I want to be as in-depth as possible).

Look forward to it!

So, who am I and what am I doing?
