I always feel like a quitter if I look something up in a game guide. It's hard for me to motivate myself to play a game if I know the story, so when I get stuck and read ahead and spoil it for myself, I always feel bad. Like I pretty much used a guide for every moment of FFVII and I think I lost a lot because of it.… » 3/27/15 1:33pm 3/27/15 1:33pm

Hey guys, I know I haven't posted in the past month, or done Craf-TAY Corner, but I have a good reason for that. Life has thrown me a real curve ball and this is the first time I've been able to post anything online since February. I haven't quit you guys. I don't think that's even possible for me. » 3/27/15 1:25pm 3/27/15 1:25pm

A lot of people in the Cardcaptor Sakura fandom have been talking about a remake of the show closer to the manga a la Sailor Moon. I don't want to see that. Honestly with the exception of the ending (the second movie was painfully dull despite its cool premise, the manga wrapped up things a lot neater) I thought the… » 2/24/15 1:44pm 2/24/15 1:44pm

Sony's biggest issue is that they create proprietory cartridges and memory cards, charge an arm and leg for them, and then wonder why people stick to cheaper systems like smartphones and 3DS. Then they don't market them at all. Aside from the first couple of months were all the PSPs got pulled off of shelves and they… » 2/20/15 1:02pm 2/20/15 1:02pm

For the longest time people asked me why I had no interest in getting a PS3 or other console, and for the longest time it was because there weren't any games I wanted to play. When I saw all the AAA games out there, they looked kind of...I don't know? Unappealing? Too generic looking, too similar gameplay (I don't… » 2/03/15 2:12pm 2/03/15 2:12pm

Craf-TAY Corner: February

Welcome to Craf-TAY Corner, the monthly feature that showcases the creative side of Talk Among Yourselves. If you do any kind of creative activities from art to crafts, cosplay to GunPla, even if it isn't strictly video game related, we want to see it! » 2/03/15 1:21pm 2/03/15 1:21pm

You should never feel bad for Cosplaying. It's fun. And people who give you shit for it are basically saying 'you are having fun wrong' which is stupid. Personally I thought the start of KHI was far more tedious than KHII. » 1/28/15 2:09pm 1/28/15 2:09pm

Basically because I don't drink coffee or tea, I always have hot chocolate and usually a muffin in the morning. I usually don't have much of an appetite but usually a few hours after breakfast I eat a snack of fruit or something. In other news I m moving forward with Ar Tonelico but filling up Shurelia's cosmosphere… » 1/28/15 1:40pm 1/28/15 1:40pm

Sony makes quite a few head scratching decisions. Among them is not marketing their portable systems at all. The PSP was perfect if you missed a lot of the first gen PS games as well as a lot of games that never saw stateside release first time round (like the original Star Ocean) and I ended up getting one right… » 1/23/15 2:23pm 1/23/15 2:23pm

I've been a lurker on Kotaku since way back and would post a bit on the Talk Amonst Yourselves Open Forum. Then when it turned into TAY I just did a couple of articles here and there. Dyram was the one who made me an author after I made a rant about how video games are referenced whenever someone commits a violent… » 1/16/15 2:09pm 1/16/15 2:09pm

What always makes me happy about these releases is that when there's a digital version, the original physical version goes down in price. I don't know about you guys, but seeing the prices for original versions of SII makes my hair stand on end. And since I don't have access to the PS network, that means the physical… » 1/13/15 2:30pm 1/13/15 2:30pm

Honestly, the biggest thing I regret during my younger days is not goofing off more. It's like, during school and college I was constantly working so damn hard that I never really did anything 'fun'. I barely went to the movies, I never went to any amusement parks or took vacations and then when I graduated that was… » 1/13/15 12:40pm 1/13/15 12:40pm
