My thoughts on remakes of classic games

Hi guys, this is a post that’s been a long time coming.

So, they announced they’re remaking Final Fantasy VII and they hinted they might remake Final Fantasy XII but I think that’s not actually a thing.

Anyway, I’m just going to talk about remakes and my feelings about them.

Some Gaming Memorabilia I have bought

This is a bit of a random one. I’ve previously talked about Artbooks that you need in your life so thought today I’d just talk about some game collectibles I own/have boguht for someone else because that kind of thing needs reviewing.

A shout out to Fangamer as they are the ones who stock a lot of cool things. Their customer service is ace and they send you cool treats in with your swag (last time someone sent me a cool picture of Strago from FFVI!! I was well chuffed!)

Read on if you actually care what I own.

12+ Cool looking monsters from video games

OK, remember I did a few posts a while ago on hot video game men and sexy video games ladies as well as my favourite androgynous characters?

Well, this is similar, but it covers quite different subject matter: video game monsters. I love a good monster design and games with lots of cool monsters make me happen.

Yoshi’s Island DS Review

Compared to Yoshi Touch and Go for DS? Wayyyy better. That game is just not very good at all.
