It's art time again! Since I'm somewhat on a Star Ocean spree, I added Star Ocean 3 imagery.

I really, really loved the game, and it was one of the first hard rpgs where I played the bonus content a lot - although I wasn't able to finish the hard final bonus bosses.

What I actually didn't like so much was the art. But yeah, it's about the game, and it's high resolution, so... enjoy!

Today, I expanded the "Death in RPGs" series of articles by another one - about the difference of gameplay and story deaths. I discussed this recently on Reddit after I thought about this topic when covering the interesting moment in Star Ocean V.

Being story-driven, rpgs sometimes have to sacrifice a hero or an interesting boss, but it's hard to explain why party members can survive getting stabbed by a gigantic robot scorpion, but cannot survive a sword wound.

I hope you like the little report, but please be aware that it is full of Spoilers! Especially Phantasy Star II, Phantasy Star IV and Final Fantasy VII

Today I created three Trials of Mana wallpapers. They are quite similar to the ones I created recently, but yesterday I finished the game, and I wanted to give a shout out to my party that I played through the past 25 hours.

The game felt great again, and I really enjoyed every minute. In fact, I might have enjoyed it a bit too much, since I was so overpowered at the last boss fight, that I didn't even get his second music - which is a shame, because I love the tune "Sacrifice, Part III, which would be the final final boss theme. Oh well.

Now I feel this emptiness that crawls up my spine every time I finish a great game. And especially one I love so dearly as Trials of Mana.

There's a new review online - today I added the Terranigma review. This game is a really lovely short SNES action RPG with a truly impressive story.

This is basically a "vintage review", since I have written this text in 2001 for a german games website. Yet, I didn't really "own" this website and also I had to completely rewrite it since the original text was in German.

So yeah, for the english speaking, rpg-o-mania reading world, this review is new. 😅

After I checked out information on the Star Ocean V moment I added yesterday, I thought I'd look for some nice artwork of this game - and here it is, a bunch of nice Star Ocean V images.

Hm, now that I have the Star Ocean gallery here, maybe I should add other Star Ocean imagery as well... :D
