Editorial: MMO or MM-NO?

O Hai, Lusi-sprites. Admittedly the tagline needs some work, but really, this post is late enough without waiting for me to attempt to be clever. At the wrist of incurring the Wrath of Shawn, I will draw attention to and apologize for the lateness of my post. Life got in the way a bit this week.

Moving right alo…

Editorial: Seeing Beyond the Nostalgia Goggles

What-ho, Lusi-sprites.

I found myself reading the blog of a friend who shall remain nameless. In a recent entry he wrote, among other things, that when he recently tried to play Final Fantasy VI the experience was somewhat lacking in the “awesome” department. At first I was shocked and mildl…

Review: Treasure of the Rudras

In 1996 Squaresoft brought us Treasure of the Rudras, and alas, most of us missed it. It was one of the last titles released on the Super Famicon and it was considered too late in the console’s life cycle to bother with an English translation. By the time that would have been possible, it would have been …

Review: Recettear: An Item Shop’s Tale

Howdy-do, Lusi-sprites!

On the last MAP, we briefly discussed Recettear: An Item Shop’s Tale, and the surpriisngly positive feedback it has received from reviewers and the gaming community at large. Overwhelmed by the pure kawaii of the game’s title and description, I hurried to Steam to …

Editorial: Comfort Games

Oh woe is me, my little Lusi-sprites. I think I may be sick. Not just “sick of Lusipurr’s crap”, but legitimately ill. Blame the sick guy whose desk is beside mine, blame my boyfriend who had a case of the death last week, or blame Lusipurr (just because).

This has lead me to think (and coug…

Review: Bahamut Lagoon

Hello again, my lovely Lusi-sprites.

Bahamut Lagoon (Bahalag) is a strategy RPG developed and published by Square back in ye olden days of 1996. Like Terranigma and Seiken Densetsu 3, Bahamut Lagoon was not released in North America, primarily due to the decline of the SNES and rise of the Playstation at t…

Editorial: Things You Hate to Hear/Read When Gaming

Happy day, Lusi-sprites.

To make up for the fact that I was almost semi-serious last week, let us strip off our pretenses, and have us a fun little post.

While bored at work, I tend to log on to the WoW Priest forums, where there are several incarnations of threads entitled “Things You Don’t Want …

Editorial: “It’s like 50 DS games for the price of one!”

Howdy-do, Lusi-sprites. Such a lovely day here on Potato Island. The sun is shining, there is a refreshing breeze blowing in from the harbor, birds are singing in my garden –and I am stuck inside, slaving away at a keyboard for our malevolent tyrant Lusipurr. Sigh.

Before I hurried home to slave away …

Editorial: Do Want. Give Now.

What ho, my Lusi-sprites.

Things have gotten to be a bit professional ‘serious business’ around here as of late, so I thought it best if we strip away some of the pomp and pretense today. Never fear, Lane is here tomorrow to class this joint up again. In the meantime, though, let us all gather aro…

Editorial: To Mod, or Not to Mod

Howdy do, Lusi-sprites.

I have always had reservations regarding mods or custom add-ons for games like World of Warcraft and this idea that many people have that certain add-ons are absolutely necessary and mandatory. Some people will simply not allow you to raid with them if you are not using customized …
