    Would Dragon Quest 8 or Final Fantasy X be amongst those games?

    Get the 3DS version of Dragon Quest 8 if you're purchasing it. No random encounters, a secret ending, and two new characters.

    I remember God of War 2 being very badass. I'd love to go back and give that one another go.

    Awesome topic. Since this one is focused on normal enemies you could run a follow-up topic later on regarding bosses or villains.

    Shouldn't be hard to think of one. Many games have "that one boss" that you just can't stand.

    For those wondering why I did all those quick results let me tell you.

    The simple reason is at the start I still felt i had to prove myself worthy to be back in the fed. Stupid I know but there it is.

    So one day about 5 or sp months ago I got this idea to do quick results for all the shows and have a way to go directly to the show in question. So when the fed & forums in general were deed I went back to Meltdown #1 and started reading the shows & recording the matches in quick result format. To get the way to go directly to the show I made each show title a link to thatcshow so anyone interested can easily go to that show and read it.

    Somewhere during all this I PMed Yaz (who was still HoC at the time) and told him what I was doing and asked of he wanted to put it up in the .com section. He said sure so I sent him everything I had until that point. Things didn't happen the way I thought they would amd Yaz left the fed. I still kept my lists up to date with the results hoping another way would present itself.

    In comes the 10th anniversary show and i thought it that would be a perfect time to unveil my part of the shindig. Once I found out Lee was heading all that up I sent him a message over on Discord telling him what I was doing and asking if he wanted to put them up. He said sure so I sent him evetything I had done. A couple weeks go by until today and kinda figuring he was busy with life and helping to get Ascension up I asked if I could do it, thinking one less thing on his plate of shit to get done would be a relief. He said go ahead and here we are.

    The lists will be updated periodically by someone with mod powers.

    And while I thanked Lee in private I wanted to thank him publicly amd I don't think I thanked Yaz at all.


    So Lee & Yaz thanks for letting me take point on this. I learned a lot about the fed amd I had a blast doing it.

    My 100th graphic Novel review is coming up next and it will be George R.R. Martin's The Hedge Knight.


    I couldn't think of anything more fitting than one of my favorite authors.

    Never seen the graphic novel version but I own and have read all three novellas in the Dunk and Egg series. The Mystery Knight is by far my favourite out of the three released so far.
