Here’s what’s going on Talk Among Yourselves, our reader-written blog: What exactly should we be calling a hardcore game? Voltaire Crescent talks about getting drunk (kind of) in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. DrZaius shares a video of filmmaker/critic Rob Ager taking on the first-person shooter genre. And Stormborn gets back to his Smash Bros. prediction drawings with a tough-but-tender version of Punch-Out’s Little Mac.

And you can always go join the voices talking about video games and life in TAY Classic and in the TAY: Open Forum.
