The Replay Ability of Final Fantasy X

In December of 2017, I hosted an event on Adventure Rules called Charming and Open where folks could ask me questions and I would ask them questions in return. We then both made a blog post in response. This submission was made by True Video Games, and it’s all about revisiting an old favorite. You’ve gotta check this one out!

In 2001, I was 11 years old and was walking to my friends house just down the road. I would always go to this particular friends house more often because his family had what appeared to be two houses stacked on top of each other. The top “house” was for his parents, and the bottom section was for their kids. It was pretty mind blowing as a kid and ended up being one of my favorite hangout spots.

On this particular day, I walked into the living room to find my friend sitting on the couch watching what appeared to be a movie. I sat down next to him and watched in silence.

It appeared to be a man laying in a pool of water, quietly contemplating. There was no sound, other than the calming water lapping against the side. As the camera focuses on the man, a rock ballad…

Charming & Open: A Response to Robert Ian Shepard!

Our second post from the December 2017 Charming and Open came from Austin over at Reaper Interactive! The question I asked him was all about rebooting a game, and the game he chose is certainly unique. I encourage you to go see it for yourself and give his blog a follow if you haven’t already!

Earlier the other day, Robert Ian Shepard from Adventure Rules asked me quite an intriguing question! “If you could choose one series to reboot, which one would it be and what would you change about it?” It took some time to think about it, but I may have found an answer to this question!

Creature comforts: video game pets

Adventure Rules Remastered continues! This weekend I’m sharing some more posts from Charming and Open, this time from the monthlong event in December. The first question I received was from Kim at Later Levels, so her answer to my question is the first I’ll share. She talked all about the pet she would want from a video game, so I fully recommend all pet fans to check this one out!

Later Levels

At the end of April this year, Ian over at Adventure Rules ran the first ever Charming and Open event. He invited readers to ask him questions about video and tabletop games but there was one catch: in return, he could ask them a question of his own and both parties had to answer honestly. I decided to query Ian about the location in a video game he’d most like to visit; and he asked me about my memories of The Secret of Monkey Island.

It was such a good idea that many of us were very happy when he announced another Charming and Open event at the beginning of December! Austin from Reaper Interactive enquired about his most embarrassing gaming moment; Chris from OverThinker Y wanted to know which gaming character he’d least like to meet down a dark alley; and Retro Redress asked Ian to tell…

Blogger Blitz Semifinals: Movie Marauders

Have you ever had a party end in disaster and thought “man, I wish I could steal someone else’s?” Well that’s the whole premise of this week’s Blogger Blitz event! Teri Mae sponsored the King of Evil in the competition, but she’s got some stiff competition in Athena and Marjolaine – be sure to check out both posts before the final showdown tomorrow, Friday September 7th, at 9 AM EST!

Well, everyone.  I can’t believe it happened, but happen it did.  I actually won the Blogger Blitz Round 1!  I honestly don’t know how this keeps happening.  The other competitors are so good I could swear I won’t make it out alive.  And yet, I do… Somehow I do.

But while I may have been excited at my last triumph this next one scares me to death.  Not only is the prompt incredibly vague and difficult, but my competition is out of the this world!  Athena, over at AmbiGaming, will be pitting her villain Marjolaine, against me and Ganondorf in the weirdest challenge of them all.

It’s Friday and work this week has been pretty hectic – another upstart hero tried to stop your tyrannical rise to power, the royal heir escaped your wicked clutches, and cosmetic microtransactions were just announced for your favorite video game franchise. Luckily, you’ve…
