Editorial: The Arcade Ramble

By Java
Watch the play video. Seriously. Screenshots do nothing for a game like this, you have to see it in action.

Java bids farewell to his writing desk by mainlining Zestria™ and tripping back to the days when gaming was something his mom would sometimes have to drive him to. The glory days of the arcade are gone, but the veterans still know how to throw a party.

Editorial: Bravely Running with It

By Java
Special move animations were a crown jewel of the first game. The second should follow suit.

As Java converts the LusipurrCorp basement to a slightly less dingy testing facility, he lends some final thoughts on trilogies and Bravely Default. He will be hanging up the pen for a bit next week, so he feels he must get his rambles in before then.

Editorial: Scheming For Control

By Java
Played the game? Notice no pictures of Percy Propa? I will explain in the other pics. I think...I think something may be going on...

Java has not been at the Lusipurr.com Panopticon long, but he knows the score, and he aims to lower it. This week, he takes a look a Freedom Wars, a title quickly rising as one of his best value games for the PlayStation Vita. Who plays those anymore?

Editorial: Game Healing

By Java
It is really hard to make a tile tactics game look exciting in a screenshot.

Java’s busted up hand is just about done healing, so he revisits the concept of games as part of the healing process before he returns to his labor job in the LusipurrCorp Orichalcum Mines. Apparently, Lusipurr is still waiting for those stylish rims.

Editorial: The School of Patience

By Java
I will have to continue consuming gorgeous screenshots as one might nibble on a cracker while waiting for a full meal.

Ever behind the times, Java feels the pressure that comes with being a self-proclaimed patient gamer. Will he shirk his adult fiscal responsibilities in favor of becoming the owner of a fresh new system with games he barely has time to play? Find out now!

Editorial: Origin Story

By Java
His musk causes ovulation.

Buppenvolksfest is here! As is his duty as Lusipurr Dynamics indentured scholar, Java has put together a workshop to educate the unwashed masses in true Buppenvolksfest tradition and bring fresh meat to Bup’s welcoming pants. Come! Share in the terror!

Editorial: Choices Are Strange Redux

By Java
...or slovenly psychological nightmares? Is there nothing in between?

Even in a time of war, Java will carve out a few hours for story time with a pointy clicky. This week, he tackles the second episode of Life is Strange. Is it possible to write more than a thousand words about such distant gameplay? Java aims to find out.

Editorial: Nintendo Poops the Bed

By Java
Boom. That about sums it up.

While Java was still deliberating how to spend his Club Nintendo coins before that gets buried in its final resting place, he picked up a scent on the wind that led him to musings on Nintendo’s next membership service, some new hardware, and mobile games.

Editorial: From Norende to the Moon

By Java
Did someone drop their Nokia phone?

Java is impatient. He is supposed to be recovering from a nasty hand injury, one which momentarily prevented him from playing Bravely Default, but instead tortures himself even more by looking ahead to Bravely Second: End Layer. Welcome to Spoilertown!

Editorial: The Trailers

By Java
No, it

Given that Java has fallen woefully behind the rest in terms of owning new systems, he spends more time watching video game trailers than actually playing the games…save for Bravely Default. However, he will not be talking BD this week. Trailers it is!
