Just 1 More Topic Returns in 2020!

Hello everyone!
It certainly has been an uphill climb to get to this point. However, I'm proud to announce that original content is returning to Just 1 More Level! Starting with the return of the show that started it all! Just 1 More Topic, ran for a few years and generated over 100+ episodes, featuring amazing people/events and covering the changing tides of gaming. The newest rendition of J1MT will expand into more than just video games, covering board games, comics, movies, maybe even some music!
January will be a fun month as the projects start to roll out!

Update!

Hello, hope everyone has had a good 2019 so far.

It's been awhile, have had quite a roller coaster in the last year and half...

With that being said, new content is in the works. Full development is happening now and new videos will be coming soon to the YouTube channel. It's been a crazy ride getting everything set up again, but I've honestly missed creating content. Hopefully there is still a spot out there for me in this evolving world.

Stay tuned to a new Facebook page, new content on the YouTube channel and brand new ventures with some familiar and some new faces! Got a show called "In the Mind of Tri" planned for the channel, just a simple, talking about the current events and landscape of gaming through my eyes. Even looking at relaunching Just 1 More Topic as well. So, fun stuff is coming!

Working on a some new features for the site as well, as the blogger system is getting outdated rapidly and it appears to have been abandoned by Google almost entirely.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

This hasn't been the most active we've been this year, but hope you've enjoyed the new features and content from us! We'll have more stuff in the new year!

Taking A Short Break

I'm going to be taking a little bit of a break from writing, and wanted to make sure that everyone was aware of what was going on. I have recently been in the process of moving and won't have much available time to put towards interviewing, reviewing games or even being able to put any articles out. That doesn't mean that I'm going away permanently, it's just that right now there's quite a few obstacles that are currently popping up and they need to be prioritized right now.Of course I'm not necessarily sure when the break will come to an end. However, I do have an incredible team that will continue to put out content through YouTube and Facebook, and I'm very excited to see what comes out of those initiatives. I've always enjoyed the creative process and it would be more of a detriment to that process if I tried to turn out articles; while also trying to handle the current real life obstacles.So this isn't goodbye, but merely I will see you all…

Dissidia: Final Fantasy NT (PS4) Review

I have been a fan of Final Fantasy for over two decades now and fell in love with the the cross over work done in the original Dissidia on the PlayStation Portable. Dissidia: Final Fantasy NT finally hit the PlayStation 4 after a few years in development and an arcade release over in Japan. This installment is the third title in the Square-Enix brawler mashup sub-series named, Dissidia. With having an arcade version, they were certainly able to get the gameplay fine tuned and with fans eagerly clamoring for it to be brought to consoles and when it was announced for a release on PS4, the game was destined to be great...not so fast.




There is so much potential here and it's tough to not be critical of NT when there have already been other phenomenal releases in the series, on comparatively inferior hardware (such as the PSP). NT does a fine job of giving every character a full list of moves and the combat is perfectly fine, even if it is gimped vs the first two titles in the Dissidi…

Shenmue 1 & 2 Announced for PS4, Xbox One and Steam

Sega has announced that Shenmue will be returning sooner than the Shenmue 3 release. At Sega Fes 2018, Sega said the collection will release this year and physically for consoles and digitally everywhere. And in a move that isn't too surprising, Shenmue 1 and 2 will release exclusively on PS4 in Japan.


Shenmue and Shenmue 2 were both released originally on the Dreamcast in 2000 and 2001 (in Japan, Shenmue 2 didn't release for the Dreamcast outside of Japan) respectively, but Sega ended up pulling the plug on the Dreamcast in 2001; ultimately ending their time as a hardware manufacturer as well. As a result, they shopped around for the best ecosystem to put their games; deciding on Xbox for the release of Shenmue 2.

In most circles, Shenmue is seen as the Sega killer. Despite the fact Sega's demise as a hardware manufacturer (and eventually software developer/publisher) was all over the walls in the 90's. It was well ahead of it's time and established what many mod…
