Editor Extraordinaire Ashton Ruby joins us to review what might be considered one of the first true action RPGs: Crystalis for the NES! Known as God Slayer: Sonata of the Distant Heavens in Japan (which is an objectively cooler name), we follow our post-apocalyptic hero in his quest to save what remains of the world from the evil Draygon!
