7 Reasons Terranigma is the Best SNES RPG Most Gamers Never Played Part…

If the first two acts of Terranigma were an ode to creation and nature, the massive third act is a requiem of history and humanity, a dark assemblage of surprisingly tragic events for a 16-bit game that goes beyond the normal RPG tropes. This is the second part of my Terranigma retrospective, focusing more on the plot… » 11/26/14 7:05am Today 7:05am

Good news, everyone! Because I've been doing production support at a factory in Michigan, I apparently get your holidays too.
