On the last Frantic’s Antics of 2017 I discussed my choices for albums of the year. I also mentioned I got to listen to somewhere around 40+ albums and I couldn’t mention them all. So now I’m going to take the time to give a brief rundown and rating of the albums that just missed out of the top 10.
Almost two years ago to the date, I had taken to the site with my fourth article for Frantic Talks. The topic was whether or not couch co-op games were slowly “dying out” due to the ever-rising popularity of multiplayer games. Back then I didn’t think they were completely dying but I also acknowledged the fact that they were becoming less and less frequent, especially in the triple A world of game developers and publishers. Today, I’m discussing something similar but minus one player.
Anyone that knows me knows I love a good RPG, and since Final Fantasy just turned 30 I might as well throw out my opinions out there via ranking them. Let’s just jump into it.
RPG. Wait, what three letters did you think I was referencing? I’m talking about the genre of games that exists called, the Role Playing Game. I remember a time “back in my day” when I was confused as to why so many people liked this style of game. Quite frankly, I thought RPGs were kind of lame.
I’ve had many people ask me how I find new music. I’ve alluded to some things in previous articles and even have given you a run-down of my weekly musical schedule, but that may not answer your question so today I’m going to give you a rundown of some of my favorite ways to find new bands.
In the past I am sure Frantic and I have both discussed our thoughts on how to offer feedback for developers on the games we love. The other day when I was hopping through time and seeing some older tweets of mine, I noticed I went on a mini-rant about the same subject several years ago. The majority of those rant-filled tweets were talking about how sending death threats to the developers of these games we love to play and demanding they change something is not cool.
Today we’re going to talk about a band that you have to have been living under a rock not to have heard of: Metallica. Yes we’re going to discuss the kings of thrash metal and their album that was released back in November of 2016 called Hardwired… to Self-Destruct.
What are part time wrestlers you ask? Well they only wrestle a handful of matches a year, and normally when they do it’s a big deal.
Alright class, would you kindly open your textbooks to page 176? Today we will be exploring how interesting it is for games to use real world history as part of their setting. Robert, I see you back there trying to…oh, I’m getting carried away here. Now that you are probably flashing back to your school days, let’s get started, shall we?
