Posted under Review, Resident Evil, Survival horror, Capcom, Action


Most everyone knows by now that I am a huge fan of the Resident Evil series, beginning with the first game some 20 years ago.  Once the flagship franchise of the survival-horror genre, the series has seen some massive shifts in direction over the last several years, much to the chagrin of longtime fans.  Although I have played and enjoyed every main entry in the series, even the oft-derided fifth and sixth entries, I agreed with the consensus that said Capcom should bring Resident Evil back to its horror roots instead of continuing with its newfound action-oriented direction.  So with the surprise announcement of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard at E3 2016, a new game in the series that promised to emphasize survival horror over blistering action, I must have been stoked out of my mind, right?

Well, not exactly.

The previous year, 2016, was one of my greatest when it came to finds I took home from the local thrift stores. While my actual game finds were few, far between, and not too exciting, the various accessories I found to improve the experience of actually playing the games more than made up for it. So, I will walk you through both my luck, my thoughts, and my process when it came to building a better battlestation. First, I will give the highlights of these finds before moving onto set up and other pieces you'll need.

Posted under Sick


Alright, Let's be real: being sick sucks. The silver lining is that you get to play all those sweet games that you wouldn't otherwise have time to play! Having been recently sick, I thought I'd go over some of my favorite sick gaming moments so that when you inevitably fall to a pH imbalance or broken bone, you have an Idea of where to start.

Posted under attack on titan, omega force, ps4


Although I have been an anime fan for a number of years, much like with gaming, I tend to not be on the cutting edge of what is new and popular. As such, I was extremely late to the party for the phenomenon known as Attack on Titan. The first season of the show began airing all the way back in 2013 and I did not dive in until this year. With that said, I am hooked, and perhaps fortunate as the second season began airing shortly after I finished catching up with the first season. The premise is simple. Humanoid giants known as Titans have killed off most humans and pushed them into isolation behind huge walls enclosing their city. Military squads do their best to fend the Titans off but the situation is always somewhere between bleak and dire. I will make it clear without reservations, I am enthralled with the Attack on Titan universe and characters. With that in mind, I was excited with high expectations for the video game adaptation, which I played through recently on the PlayStation 4.

Posted under Functional collecting, unplayed, unfinished, guilt



As long as I have been collecting games, I have always described myself as a "functional collector," meaning that I only picked up games I wanted to play.  With only a few exceptions I held true to this ethic, and I plowed dutifully through every game I bought, but slowly my collection began to get larger; so slow that I hardly noticed.  I began to long for a "video game" clean slate, longing for a day long past where I looked at upcoming games for something to play, not just something to add to the pile.  So, I set out to create a backlog list of some sort, then everything came tumbling down around me.

Posted under Robots reading Nietzsche, Nier, androids, robots, it is funny how a supposedly male robot with a female voice named Pascal is even a source of arg


She just heard about her game's release window.

Most of us enjoy a good underdog tale and the existence of Nier: Automata certainly fits that description.  It was released alongside two other highly anticipated AAA open world action/exploration games (The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Horizon: Zero Dawn).  That alone would sound a death knell for most games.  In retrospect, it is amazing Automata has gained the attention it has.

While polished, with amazing character design, art direction, and a fantastic soundtrack, it was created on a developer-admitted small budget with noticeably last-gen graphics.  This is shared with the rest of the series, as Automata is an unexpected sequel to the cult-favorite series Nier, itself an offshoot of the Drakengard series.  And like its forefathers, there are a lot of reasons gamers may miss it.

Posted under Playcast, Syberia, PC, XBox, DS, , playthrough, May, 2017


Join RF Generation Playcast hosts, Rich (singlebanana), Shawn (GrayGhost81), and long time RF Generation member and front page contributor, Addicted, as they discuss a popular, point-and-click PC title from 2002, Syberia. This month's Playcast travels through Old World, European communities inhabited by humans and marvelous, mechanical, masterpieces called automatons. In this month's podcast, we take an in-depth look at Syberia's fantastic narrative, beautiful, steampunk art style, and its stripped down game mechanics. This title has received praise from point-and-click enthusiasts, but how does it set on the palates of our fine, gaming connoisseurs? Did this game's messages find their way into the hearts and minds of our participants, or are they simply muddled due to other shortcomings? And can the boys ever figure out how to line up a call correctly? The answers to these questions and many more in this month's episode of the RF Generation Playcast! 

As always, we are happy to hear your thoughts on this game on our discussion page (linked below). We will respond to your comments and are always happy to discuss the game more. We hope you enjoy our show.  Please be sure to rate and write a review of the show on iTunes to help us increase our listenership. Thanks for the listen!

Posted under video, review, NES


Xexyz is a very unique game that hits a lot of marks that I love to see in games. It covers two genres, shoot'em up and platformer, and it's published by Hudson Soft. For an NES game, there's a lot going on here -- sometimes a little too much. Though the game certainly isn't one of the most popular on the NES, my expectations were high, but could Xexyz meet them? Watch to find out!

Posted under CIB, complete in box, collecting, game boxes, manuals


1 of 3 collection shelves in my game room, this houses a handful of my favorite
games, along with a large number that I've only recently acquired.

If you are into collecting games, you've undoubtedly seen the abbreviation of "CIB" thrown around quite a bit.  For the uninitiated, or as a refresher, that's gamer-speak for "Complete In Box."  As a collector, you'll have to decide whether or not you want to collect loose games, mostly to play, or complete games, for any number of reasons.  You may like the whole package because of the history of games, and the fact that most console games in today's world don't come with manuals.  Perhaps you'd like to replicate the experience of being a child, opening the game, and reading through the manual before you play it.  Or, maybe it's a pride thing, and having the total package is tantamount to some kind of bragging rights.  Whatever the scenario you more closely fit, collecting complete game packages has become a trendy thing to do in gaming circles.

Despite discussion regarding its relevance, E3 is still a magical place where the rumors meet the road. The big show is nearly upon us as the game industry gathers in Los Angeles to show off the big titles for the upcoming year. This year looks to be no exception with a slew of expected reveals and hopefully some out of left field. I've written down my E3 2017 expectations and predictions for what I'm most excited about and I would love to hear your predictions.

From the thatgamecompany website

Thatgamecompany is responsible for some of the most beautiful and serene video games I've ever played. Starting with the simplistic, petri dish-esque flOw, and finishing with the desert exploration of Journey, their games have gotten a little more complex with each title, but still maintain a masterful balance of minimalistic controls, stunning visuals, and emotional impact that, in my humble opinion, has yet to be matched. However, while Journey may be the fan favorite, and is completely deserving of every accolade heaped upon it, for me personally, it's thatgamecompany's middle title, Flower, that stands above the others.

With large vistas of lush, green fields and what may be the best use of the PS3's ill-fated Sixxaxis motion controls ever, it remains my favorite game to play when I've had a stressful day and need to relax while letting all my cares melt away, even now, eight years after its initial release. A large part of this is due to its wonderful soundtrack, which I'd like to highlight in our second episode of RF Jamz.

Recently my city held it's third annual Fan Convention. Each year I've had the pleasure of setting up and running the gaming area. It's a lot of work, and honestly I'd rather just attend the event as a patron and fully enjoy it. However, this year, I have more staff and experience doing this kind of thing than ever before, so I got to spend a bit more time than I have in the past experiencing the convention. I still had to work my butt off leading up to the event and during the prime times, but was able to explore a lot more than in previous years.

Where the NeoMagicWarrior magic happens...hey, I'm talking about video game magic you sicko!

Welcome to the first installment of my new series where we take a look at some of our site members gaming spaces!  I was overjoyed by the excited messages that I got from several of our members regarding this project and I hope that it will not only entertain, but make us closer as a community.  I had several great ideas for titles for this series (thanks to bickman2k for the main inspiration), and I had a good number of members asking to be featured in upcoming months. Rest assured, if you contacted me or posted in the comments section regarding featuring your game room, I have you on my list and will contact you when your name is up.

During this series, I hope that you gain some new perspectives on game room and console set ups, storage ideas, and an insight on what makes each space work for its owner.  And who knows, you may even want to steal borrow some ideas to implement in your game room, or future gaming area. I hope that you will participate in the comments section and interact with each owner by asking them questions or discussing the features that you like.

**If you are a member and have a game room or gaming area that you would like to share, please send a PM to singlebanana and I will add you to our list.**
