I made a bet with JoeTheBro on February 19, 2014. I say the 3DS will outsell the PS4 at least one month in 2014, he says the 3DS won't. Whoever is right gets to control the other person's sig for a month.

Eww, don't know that much.
Played FF1-3 on emulator, would say awesome to great (but dem damn misses during battle, I hate it!).
I also played Y's on Master System, would rate it awesome.


1. Final Fantasy
2. Mother
3. Ys
4. Ys II
5. Dragon Warrior III

Kind of a tough generation for me to rate because a lot of the RPGs I played weren't true JRPGs but Japanese reworkings of WRPGs (Ultima, Wizardry, etc.) and I'm not sure if those count.

I wasn't even alive during that era.

Faxanadu is developed by Falcom if you haven't played it.

Is it? Somehow, despite "Xanadu" being right there in the name, I never managed to put two and two together. Good job, me!

Maybe I'll check it out sometime.
