Hey, I'm still committed to my nightmare scheme of playing Unlimited Saga for 24+ hours. But I have an important question and I'd like the community's input: should I use the included instruction manual (which we can perhaps expand to include guides online, etc)? I'm putting this up to a vote!

Vote here, or else!Thanks to one brilliant audience suggestion I am rescinding this poll and opting for something even more dubious!

I'll be doing stupid stuff for this year's programming once more, details here!

There's also the matter of some pretty wild Blizzard swag that will be made up for grabs courtesy of some connections I have made with former Blizzard employees. More details forthcoming!

Sounds fun duder. Not that I will be doing a bunch of Kawazu-related video game stuff this year already.

@zombiepie: What could have been indeed. Dress for the job you want to have.

These continue to be the best blog content on Giant Bomb, if not the best content full stop.

Seeing as you're now playing through the last good Final Fantasy game, it seems like the next logical step would be for you to play through the first good/great one. When do you plan on tackling Final Fantasy IV?

I disagree.

@mento: Namco's quietly been in the mini-console-adjacent space for a while now, and some of the more obscure games I've already covered have appeared there (I believe Jr. Pac-Man has been on licensed TV arcade machines, for instance). As it happens, their most recent venture in this space was through AtGames, and has caused something of a shitshow. Short version being, some of the units contain NES ports of games while others contain arcade originals.

Also, I can't wait to get into the Tales games so my lengthy time between posts is at least justified by the games themselves. I am maybe a quarter through Tales of the Abyss on 3DS and am waiting to go either XBO or Switch on Vesperia next year.

I'm fortunate to live with people who also like games quite a bit, but they don't really get how I enjoy pretending to drive old cars with no assists. I find the whole thing to be deeply relaxing, as it basically uses parts of my brain that I don't use anymore (I drive to work maybe once a month, otherwise getting around on transit or my feet). Forza Horizon has basically become my forever series for reasons described in this thread.
