Hello and welcome to Marvel Week!  With the release of Thor: The Dark World a week away, we here at Those Review Guys are a little more than a little excited for the newest Marvel Studio’s adventure into the realm of superheroes.  In order to hold us over until the release of Thor, we have decided to have a Marvel movie marathon.  And, of course, a movie marathon turned into a week long review extravaganza! So stayed tuned all week for reviews of all your favorite Marvel films!

This handsome, beautiful man has brought us insanity in the form of Tony Stark, Sherlock Holmes, Sergeant Lincoln Osirus, and many more.

Iron Man 3 releases in the United States in just a few days, so we here at ThoseReviewGuys decided to get together and host another week (we’ll try at least) long celebration of the man behind the Iron mask, Robert Downey Jr. We love this man dearly, and we hope you do too. So what I’m saying, if I’m saying anything at all, is welcome back to the Stark Expo!

The cast of Final Fantasy IX. Left to Right: Quina, Freya, Eiko, Princess Garnet, Zidane, Steiner, Vivi, and Amarant.

Released in 2000, Final Fantasy IX was caught between the end of one generation and the beginning of the next. The Playstation 2 was already out and many fans were looking forward to the amazing visuals of the upcoming Final Fantasy X rather than paying attention to an obsolete console. Though the game sold well, it couldn’t match up to the success of its two more realistic predecessors. Ask gamers about their favorite RPG on the original PlayStation and most will name Final Fantasy VII. This is a true shame since this game has arguably the best graphics on the PlayStation, a 140 piece soundtrack that composer Nobuo Uematsu has called his favorite in the series, and the highest Metacritic score of any game in the series. The return to a medieval fantasy setting recaptures the magic and fun of the series’ earlier titles. With eight permanent party members, players have character options  but not so many that characters get lost in the crowd. Its beautiful story, huge world, and balanced battle system make it one of the best JRPG’s of all time.
