RPGs and Corn Stew Shearer

Editorial Excerpt: "For all the hubbub about calling them Role Playing games, there doesn't seem to be much thought given to diversifying what roles the player can take."

That Abducting Penchant Sarah Williams

Editorial Excerpt: "It's nice to see that as new RPGs keep coming out, you start to see less and less of those story conventions that have been used tons of times already."

From the Editor's Desk

First, I want to congratulate Sarah for hitting mythril status today. Second, I need to say that I would rather be playing Lost Odyssey. However, I love you all and this section so much that I've decided to bring you another edition of editorials. I hope you enjoy it. Enough talk, let us go to the meat of the column.

Stew is back once more with a discussion on roles that people can play in RPGs. Sarah is back with us, too. She is here today talking about clichés and how they need to be rethought. Come on in and read them. Maybe they will inspire you to write your own.

Just in case anyone cares, I am deep into Lost Odyssey. I highly recommend giving it a shot if you like a traditional RPG experience that does not feel stale. Oh, and the story is really good as well, especially the dreams. I'm still working through Final Fantasy Tactics, but I haven't made much progress there. On the non-RPG side, I finally completed the Guitar Hero III setlist on Medium. I'm not that good at the game, but I really enjoy it. I don't know if I'm ever going to get into Hard mode. That's enough from me, bring on the editorials.
