Commentary – It’s All About Service

As a gamer we have a lot of choice on where we spend our money on games. From online retailers, to big chains like Gamestop, to small mom and pop shops. For me, the choice is easy; I frequent a Play n’ Trade that’s operated by a bunch of true gamers that care about their jobs. I tend to stay away from places like Best Buy and Walmart because they don’t give the level of service that I expect. I want legitimate suggestions and recommendations, not someone who’s going to try to push a product on me. I want someone who understands my wants and needs, and can give me a legit opinion weather I should or should not buy this game. Honestly, I like that even if we disagree on platform or game genres, they will give me an honest opinion & view. I want to be helped, not simply “dealt with”. I respect people who take pride in their job and provide the sort of insights that I need to make an informed purchasing decision. For me, it comes down to knowledge and service. That’s why you should support your local game shops & give the business to those that really care for you.

Review – Alan Wake

Stephen King once wrote that nightmares exist outside of logic, and there’s little fun to be had in explanations. Their antithetical to the poetry of fear. In a horror story, the victim keeps asking why, but their can be no explanation, and there shouldn’t be one… With that we begin the story of Alan Wake, the new psychological horror game from Microsoft Game Studio and Remedy.

Commentary – Final Fantasy XI, 8 Years Later & Still Going Strong!

This week, Final Fantasy XI celebrates it’s 8th anniversary. Despite it’s old age, and having been up against the unstoppable juggernaut that is World of Warcraft, FFXI is a game that has grown wiser & better with age. Some may call it a poor excuse for an MMORPG, others consider it the black sheep of the Final Fantasy franchise. Call it what you will, but for those of us that have endured with the game, it’s a part of our very lives that will live on with us long after the game has moved on.
