    Dear Readers: Advertisers Don’t Get Videogames

    Has anyone else seen that commercial, I think it's for some sort of battery, that uses the impossible portable gaming console? The system's molded to resemble a Game Boy Advance, but I wasn't fooled. Too generic looking. Anyway, what a terrible commercial! It makes me wanna take that damn "going and going" bunny and tear its face off in a violent manner. In the ad, a kid and his grandpa (wait, old people don't play video games! ) are playing two of the GBA wannabes when the batteries of the gpa's system die, causing an error screen to crop on on his screen and the young whipper snapper to win the game. That's so dumb! The boy wouldn't win, his screen would just freeze, we all know that. So Energizer or whoever has turned off the entire gamer demographic by airing this commercial, the very demographic you'd assume they'd be trying to reach by airing a commercial featuring video games! Grrr, idiots.

  • … 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.
