I make and play games - playing games I use as a reward for reaching specific milestones within my various development projects. I've played a wide variety of games, having started at the tender age of three and worked my way up over the years so that, at one point, I was actually going out of my way to find the original games (cartridges, CDs, whatever) to play.

All games I elect to review must be 'Complete' status (though games still in the process of clearing out bugs are fine and will be noted in the review itself). These games must have a download on RMN (as I pass them to my Dropbox queue) and need to be self contained - everything I need to play should be in the download, without needing to install anything (including RTPs; we aren't living in the days of slow connections anymore, people). You should also have any fixes in the download, not something I have to look through the comments for - I'm going to be avoiding them like the plague until I've finished the review.

When I review a game, I try to play as much of it as I can possibly stand before posting the review - I make notes/write part of the review as I'm playing, so a lot of what goes into the review is first impressions of sections. I'm also not a stickler - things don't have to be perfect - but I've seen many examples of things not done perfectly but, at the same time, not done horribly. I rate five categories on a scale from 1 to 10: Story, Graphics, Sound, Gameplay & Pacing, and Mapping & Design. 5 is average to me, so it's not necessarily saying that category is bad - it's saying it's middle of the road. Games within the same editor are compared to one another, not games across editors (I'm not going to hold an RM2k game to the same standards as a VX Ace game due to system limitations, but I won't let it hold back the RM2k game's rating) - unless the game is part of a series across multiple editors.
Legion Saga X - Episode ...
A fan updated version of the RPG Maker 2000 classic




I'm an impatient person sometimes, but I'll find some way to manage.


Well, as long as he makes it in somewhere. =) The more I see here, the more I want to take a shot at this game (and yes, the choice of character graphics helped here).


Naomasa was in Pokemon Conquest though. ;)


Awww, no use of Ii Naomasa? ;_; Sorry, I'm a bit of a nerd for that time period, especially with all the amusing adaptations that roll out of it. (Sengoku Basara was the greatest series ever. <3)


Etsuo is awesome. Reminds me of a dynasty warrior character.
Thats because they are.
I believe these are ripped out from pokemon conquest.

Dyntasy Warriors is circa 200 CE China.
These images, from Pokemon Conquest, are from a circa 1600 Japan. Etsuo is Date Masamune - possibly one of the coolest adaptations of characters in history. Just the very fact that they're using an image of him makes me at least want to try this. <_<
