Welcome to Potion!

Ethan and I love to play games, and we want to make the gaming community more inclusive for seasoned and fresh gamers alike. With this in mind, we created Potion, a community that shares the joys of gaming!

If want to know more about Potion, head down to our About section.

You may be curious about us, so as our first post, we'd like to introduce ourselves and our relationship with games!


1. What got you into games?

I grew up watching my older brother play video games like Baldur's Gate on the PC, and I loved Chrono Trigger when I tried it though I had no conscious idea of what was going on. When I was about 11, I begged my mother to buy me a Gameboy and then proceeded to plough through Pokemon Yellow and Pokemon Red. Chrono Trigger is still one of my all-time favourites - I have it on the DS and I periodically return to it whenever I need the comfort or familiarity.

I mean, it's only the best game everrrrrr...

2. What are you playing right now?

Right now Rachel and I are quite invested in Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward, but I am also making slow and gradual progress in Yakuza 0. Don't Starve, FTL and Dota 2 are games you could probably classify as my perennial "playing right now"s.

3. Favorite genre?

JRPGs, including the newer Action-style RPGs like Dark Souls.

4. Most anticipated game of 2017?

Without a doubt, Persona 5. I was also psyched for Mass Effect: Andromeda but I've been looking forward to Persona 5 for a long long time.


1. What got you into games?

I used to watch my sisters play Sonic the Hedgehog on the SEGA. Like almost all 10 year olds at the time, I also got into Pokémon and played Red, Blue, Yellow, Gold and Silver. But I started to get a little more serious about games after I bought the PlayStation 1 when I was 11, and played Final Fantasy VIII (which I decided was a good game just by looking at the poster

2. What are you playing right now?

I'm playing Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward. It's actually my first MMORPG as I've always stuck to console gaming, but it's really fun! I'm also playing Mass Effect, Don't Starve, and the occasional Civilisations VI "next turn"

3. Favorite genre?

Hands down RPGs and strategy games! Huge Final Fantasy fan :)

4. Most anticipated game of 2017?

Valkyria Revolution, the sequel to Valkyria Chronicles. I saw it in Japan last year and am now patiently waiting for the English copy (subs only, Japanese audio FTW!)
