  • … of the Month: Breath of Fire II

    Breath of Fire II is every bit as good as the first one, if not better. If you've played the first you'll be familiar with soe of the towns (i.e. Windia) and characters (i.e. Nina) in this one. The battle system is also pretty much the same as the first, with random encounters and turn based fighting. The main difference is that your character formations is a diamond instead of a line. The story is quite interesting, and you'll be into it from the very beginning of the game. There are many new and interesting characters that join you on your quest, such as a big armadillo type man, a fierce cat girl, a dog with a crossbow, and a monkey with a knife (and come now, what could be more fun than a monkey with a knife? Nothing.) There are fun side things to do while you wander around the world (hunting, fishing, visiting a traveling circus, etc.), any many interesting items and spells to discover. If you are a fan of RPGs or dragons or fire.. or monkeys with knives.. or grass and water and shiny things and mountains with caves and fish and breathing or... anything, get yourself a Game Boy Advance or a Super Nintendo and pick up Breath of Fire II.

    Dear Readers: Latisha? Why?

    Try as I have been for the past month to understand, Latisha's existence in ToeJam & Earl III: Mission to Earth simply does not make any goddamn sense. From a gameplay standpoint, she serves as the middle ground between the speedy DJ TJ and the loafy Big Earl; from a storyline, she's the middle ground between the arrogant DJ TJ and the kindly Big Earl. She's the average, well-rounded character that's been ignored in video games for generations, akin to Sion Barzahd in The Bouncer or Mario in Super Mario Bros. 2. Except that in these two cases, the average character as least has the advantage of being the main focal point for the game's storyline; Latisha has no such advantage.
