Hellboy in Hell #7: The Hounds of Pluto (Part 1) Review

by Tim Finchon August 14, 2015
I like to tell people that I’m a fan of Hellboy. However, I’m very careful to whom I tell this, because to say I’m a “fan” is somewhat of an exaggeration. I don’t read the series regularly and probably never will, but I’ll admit that I’ve watched the films, and I enjoyed them so much […]
Super Mario RPG

Throwback Thursday: Super Mario RPG

by Tim Finchon August 7, 2015
Very few games influenced my childhood as much as Super Mario RPG. At the time, the game drew me in because it had Mario & Co. in it and it was made in collaboration with Squaresoft, who at the time had yet to release Final Fantasy VII, the game that would put them back on […]

Millennials, Gaming, and the Real World

by Tim Finchon July 21, 2015
Ease up a bit Time. At least Millennials never named Putin “Person of the Year”. Spoiled. Dependent. Entitled. Clueless. If you’re a Millennial like me, then you’ve felt these words attributed to you at some point (they’re mostly seen in USA Today articles written by stuffy people who don’t truly understand our generation). Still, I […]

Final Fantasy Record Keeper

Freeplay Express: Final Fantasy Record Keeper

by Tim Finchon July 17, 2015
The Final Fantasy universe is…expansive. There are few gaming franchises that can dip into their own history as an inspiration and basis for an entirely new game based on past games, characters, and events. Square-Enix did just that when they created Final Fantasy Record Keeper for iOS/Android. For a free mobile game, Final Fantasy Record […]
