I have the first edition of The Sky: Art of Final Fantasy, which was limited to 1000 and was signed by Amano. It comes with a few goodies compared to the new slipcase edition: it comes in a box set, includes the book "All About Yoshitaka Amano", a flipbook, an acetate print, postcards as well as a card signed by Amano. I realize it's an extremely rare and valuable item, although I'm considering reselling it since I'm not actually collecting artbooks, and I think that an actual collector would probably enjoy it more than I do.

It's opened, although I never actually read it. I just took a look at the contents and quickly flipped through them though everything is still as new and the box set was carefully preverved (in a smoke-free, pet-free environment).

I'm not set on a fixed price, so if you're interested, please make an offer! :)


The Helper Monkey / Research on the most important RPGs of all time
« on: March 06, 2014, 08:10:50 PM »

I'm currently part of a research group on video games genres, and I'm myself assigned to RPGs. The ultimate goal over the years will be to be able to describe in details the evolution of the genre, although a first step will be to try to determine which games are considered as the best and most important of all time. It's important to us to have varied sources, such as academia, media and the community of gamers. That's where I need your help, as RPG fans and specialists. I would like to know which RPGs you consider as essential. You can answer either here or by PM, and I'll be glad to compile and share the results, which I'll do next week. Your help will be greatly appreciated as your opinion will be crucial for my research! Here are the general criteria:

-I don't ask for a specific amount of games. It can be a top 3, a top 20 or any amount option you'll prefer.
-Please let me know on what general criteria your choices are based. I do not ask for anything specific.
-For each game, please add a short explanation for that specific choice.

Thank you!

The Soundroom / Angèle Dubeau et la Pietà - Game music
« on: November 21, 2012, 09:38:50 PM »
So, Angèle Dubeau, which is one of the greatest violonists in Quebec, just released a disc on which she plays music from various video games. Of specific interest here would be the Final Fantasy, Secret of Mana and Chrono Trigger/Cross medleys. The disc is really great, so I wanted to share it with you guys! :)

The Chrono medley is available on Youtube (by the disc publisher, so this is legit):

And well, if you enjoy it, go ahead and buy the disc, it's not very expensive anyway  (around 15$) :)

Single-Player RPGs / Kemco Android RPGs
« on: August 29, 2012, 08:19:00 PM »

I was looking for some RPGs to play on my Android, and I realized there were a couple that were released by Kemco... They all seemed like 16-bit era classic RPGs, although I hadn't really heard of them before. Plus, some of them are compatible with the XPeria Play so it's even better! I was wondering if some of you tried any of those games and could tell me if they are worth the purchase or not?

Here's a link to the apps, to illustrate the games I'm talking about:,+Ltd.%29&hl=en

The Helper Monkey / Direct2Drive transferring on Gamefly
« on: December 21, 2011, 06:54:59 PM »
I just received an e-mail telling me that Direct2Drive is moving on Gamefly, although it's not really clear what will happen and I don't really know what Gamefly actually is... Would anybody have more info on any of those (the transfer and/or what Gamefly is)? I guess (hope) I'm not the only one who have a few games on that site, so I'd be curious to know if anybody understood that thing better thant I did. Thanks!
