Ten awesome Super Nintendo RPG games you should probably play at least once in your life.Ten awesome Super Nintendo RPG games you should probably play at least once in your life.

I'm not sure if I should be proud or just plain sad to say that I've only completed five of the ten games on this list. Oh whatever, I'm proud - those were good times. For those of you who would like to relive the Super Nintendo glory days check out the OpenEmu project. It's a fantastic iTunes-like emulator for Mac that is currently under development (thanks Ant).

Square Enix did quite well this year with their multi-million selling titles.Square Enix did quite well this year with their multi-million selling titles.

One of those titles happened to be Final Fantasy XIII, a game that literally makes you literally click one button for ten plus hours and nothing else.  On the flip side, if you manage to stick it out past the twenty hour mark the game begins to get somewhat enjoyable.

Daily Grind: Nerdy

Name: Vin (aka levelup+1)
How Vin feels today: Nerdy @ 2:55:41 PM
What Vin really wants today: Finish up remaining work tasks and attempt to get some time in playing a certain RPG video game that sounds vaguely similar to 'Shminal Shmantasy' at some point this evening. Insert traditional battle victory theme here.

Music Stuck in Head: Call it Love / God Street Wine
Continuing the celebration of the recently announced GSW reunion. You can have a listen to this rare jazzy track over on archive.org.

Stuff to do today:

  • Purchase Final Fantasy XIII from semi-local NYC area Best Buy
  • Semi-local = four subway stops from work location (meh)
  • Ignore reviews complaining about PS3 versus Xbox 360 quality
  • Finally post new photo to photoblog

Buying either game will set you back just nine bucks a piece which isn't so bad when you consider what the Nintendo DS versions of these games are going for. A lot can be said for being able to use tactile buttons though.
