First Impressions – Shin Megami Tensei IV (the game, this time!)

I’ve put about 10-12 hours into the game since picking it up, that should be enough for a quick rundown of my thoughts, yeah? I’d make this a full review, but I prefer to save those until I’ve actually beaten the thing, on the chance that something unexpectedly horrible should pop up. Anyway, let’s get started.

Grass Pants Reviews – Shin Megami Tensei IV: Limited Edition

smt setAs you guys know, I am an absolute sucker for special editions with physical goods. Even in an age where it makes entirely more sense to go digital, if you throw in a soundtrack or a nice box, I’m sold on a physical copy.

Grass Pants Predicts – E3 2013

E3 is only a few days away, the hype is building like crazy, and a ton of rumors are about to be put to rest. Since I’m always a fan of pre-event speculation and predictions, I figured I’d give it a shot myself. Since I’m mostly a Nintendo guy and haven’t been following the other companies all that much, this is gonna be a Nintendo-centric set of predictions. Let’s get started!

Grass Pants Reviews – Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers

I’ve never had such a mixed bag of feelings when it came to a game before. I don’t really know how to open something like this without completely spoiling the verdict and my final thoughts, so apologies for the below-standard intro, guys.
