Hello everyone! Prior to joining staff, I had done a bunch of soundtrack reviews, and some game reviews going by the name Dennis (surprise surprise). I've been a gamer since the NES days, though I began having memories of my gaming experience with the SNES (which I still own). The console has also introduced me to the RPG genre; I fell in love with Final Fantasy IV (II on the SNES). This same game also introduced me to the beauty of gaming music. Nintendo and RPG games are what I grew up with throughout my childhood, and they both remain special to me to this day.

Aside from good gameplay and music, what I look for in an RPG is a solid story, no matter how cliché, along with a good cast of characters. My personal preference is good characters over good plot, especially characters I can relate with or feel attached to. Give me a "save the world" story any day of the week, and I will still have a good time as long as there are likable characters.

Outside of video games, I like to play board games, though I sadly lack regular players at my end. I was an avid anime fan, but barely watch anymore, and have mostly been sticking with reading manga nowadays. Currently, I'm at a point where I'm trying to decide on what to do with the rest of my life, but it hasn't been easy. The road to my future is long and harsh, but at least I have the joy of RPGs by my side.
