    Most/all of the staff have been somewhere between dismissal and outright hostile toward most of the games I've been into for the past year or two. The way it's expressed sometimes bugs me, especially ...

    It's 2014, and I just finished Final Fantasy VII for the first time

    Final Fantasy VII's a weird game to write about. It's a 17-year-old game whose reputation looms large over the genre, and in many ways a generation of gamers. To some, it's an unassailable masterpiece...

  • GrantHeaslip posted a message in the forum topic Seems like nobody is really excited about this game.. on the Persona 4: Dancing All Night board

    I'm super excited about it, but I also know it's a little ways off. It was announced for fall 2014 in Japan, but for a game that was supposed to be out in a couple of months, they've been oddly silent...

  • GrantHeaslip posted a message in the forum topic What is the worse AAA developer for story?. on the General Discussion board

    I'm not going to waste a bunch of time defending Final Fantasy XIII's story in a world in which Indigo Prophecy exists. I haven't played Heavy Rain or Beyond, but unless David Cage magically learned h...

    I've been meaning to watch that for ages. My WWII (and really, history in general) knowledge is embarrassingly poor, and while that's to some degree the fault of my terrible history education (Ontario...

    I'm in, with the stipulation that I'm a total scrub. I started playing P4A a few weeks ago and had never played a fighting game prior (besides Smash, if that counts). I'm "GrantHeaslip" on PSN.@mosesp...

    I really like the aesthetic of The Tomorrow Children. Doesn't look like something I'd want to actually play, but it's definitely got a neat look and vibe.

    I'm enough of an insomniac that I guess I'm watching this. I'm hoping to see more Japanese PS4 games -- E3 was pretty underwhelming in that respect. I'm not familiar with the production status of Sony...
