My fellow geek and Fresh Pebbles blogger, Eccoboy has done some deep research on one of our favorite game writers/reviewers of all time, Nick Des Barres. He told me he had to endure countless link clicking and went very deep in the rabbit hole to even begin to get some information on the man.
Des Barres is currently one of Play magazines Japanese correspondents but to me he’ll always be the reviewer of Final Fantasy VII for my favorite video game magazine of all time, Gamefan. He actually still owns the issue with the FF7 review and admitted to me that he still reads it from time to time. I also owned this issue way back when but like many things, most likely tossed it by the wayside. There might be a sliver of a chance it’s at my parents house but it’s very doubtful.
