soloflying asked: There is this game I need to find. I have been looking for ages. I don't remember much. It was a PS1 game, and I believe it was Square Enix (or at least played like that sort of RPG). At the beginning of the game, you got to choose 1 of (I think) 3 characters for the opening sequence until they meet up. Also, when you pick one of the boys, there is a scene in which you are chased by a boulder Indiana Jones style. If you can help, I'll be your best friend.

servbotdoom asked: I remember when I was a kid there was a game with a boy who got sucked in a computer game and turned into a blue lizard-human hybrid. He could turn into a bird type character and a beast type character too. It was a platformer and I had it on the gamecube. Please help :)

superjogurt asked: Yo, you got a shoutout on GiantBomb. Good blog, bub!

That’s pretty amazing! Is it the podcast or the website?

Patrick Klepek has actually been reblogging my stuff once in awhile on his tumblr, but this is the first I’ve heard of getting any mention over there.

Also just discovered that Jeff Gerstmann has me in the “Following” section on his tumblr.

pablokm asked: There was a surreal game where the main character was shirtless and wore shorts & had a chinese monk-like ponytail. From what I can remember he also had the ability to fly/glide. Released on both pc & ps1 (i believe). help me OVG, you're my only hope!

Anyone who thinks that Konami’s love of ill boss introductions in Beat ‘Em Ups started with their 1989 TMNT arcade game should play through Crime Fighters, released earlier that same year.
