News: Final Fantasy 14 Final Thoughts

Spending five days with the game is enough to know it's not to my liking. Is it a horrible MMO? Yes, yes it is. There are better Free to Play MMOs launched years ago that are better than this. As a fan of the Final Fantasy series (I am currently playing and liking Final Fantasy 13), this MMO is so bad that at some point I couldn't justify the awful environment, game play, and interface.

News: Final Fantasy 14 First Impressions

These impressions are coming from a person completely new to the Final Fantasy Online world. Never played FF 11 or the FF 14 Beta. This game is not friendly to new people. The account creation is a Kafka like experience in things that don't make sense. For the game itself, the beginning tutorial is awful and does not really teach you the basics of combat. Here is a small breakdown of my opinions, with the good points first so that they don't get overshadowed by the negatives.

News: Shadows of the Dammed Trailer

A new game from the makers of No More Heroes and Resident Evil coming out on 2011 from EA. It looks like something like out of a Quentin Tarantino movie. A third person shooter, it's probably another attempt by creators in Japan to tap into the lucrative shooter market in the US.

News: In-depth The Witcher 2 Interview

A 30 minute interview on the upcoming game The Witcher 2. Lots of good questions answered along with great footage of this gorgeous game. If you're looking for something to watch with that special someone this would be it (quality time!). Perfect video to romance him/her/it on this monday night.

News: Catherine Trailer

It's great to see something that will probably never make it to the United States. This game from Atlus looks like a fancy art film. It's an adult thriller filled with murderous sheep-men and the American taboo: sex.

News: Bioshock Infinite Revealed!

Amazing trailer. A sequel that's not a sequel, but takes the series to the open skies! From the official website:BioShock Infinite is a first-person shooter currently in development at Irrational Games, the studio behind the original BioShock (which sold over 4 million units worldwide). Set in 1912, BioShock Infinite introduces an entirely new narrative and gameplay experience that lifts players out of the familiar confines of Rapture and rockets them to Columbia, an immense city in the sky.F...

News: Mafia 2 PC/360/PS3 Comparisons

Mafia 2 is coming August 24th to the PC, PS3, and 360. From early reports it looks like the only version worth getting is on the PC. Between consoles, the 360 version is less 'crappy'. Besides the video, look at the pictures below to determine the picture quality:

News: Scott Pilgrim The Game First Impressions

Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Video Game was released on Tuesday August 10th for the PS3 (Download only, $9.99). It will be released for the Xbox 360 on August 25th for 800 imaginary points. We spent a few hours yesterday on co-op and single player and here are our initial impressions.

News: Guild Wars 2 Manifesto Trailer Video

Are these guys running for politics? I'm buying whatever they are selling. Really great trailer with an overview of what Guild Wars 2 will bring new to the MMO scene. Narrated by the developers of the game, they offer some good points on what you can expect from the game when it launches early next year (date has yet to be determined, but it does not look like it will make it into the holiday period).

News: Funny SC 2 Match

A match between Arew vs NTT ( pronounces Entity, get it? //rolls eyes) goes into bizzaro world very quickly as the two sides make the weirdest choice. First time I've seen it in a match. Watching the first four minutes is enough, the rest turns into a standard match.

Abstinence: The Video Game

There is an abstinence game being created by the University of Central Florida with $400k+ of taxpayer money. The game is directed at middle school girls to help them handle and cope with sexual advances.

News: Limbo Trailer

To follow up on the Devil's Fork, here is the trailer for Limbo. From the Wiki:The primary character in Limbo is a nameless boy who awakes in the middle of a forest on the "edge of hell" (the game's title is taken from the Latin limbus, meaning "edge")[1] who then begins to seek out his missing sister.It looks innocent, but if you watch the trailer, you can see the kid stepping on dead bodies and so gruesome deaths. It's out on the 360 via XBLA, I don't know if it's out on any other platform.

News: Introduction to Terrans in Starcraft 2

Interested in playing as the Terran race or curious about the new updates? Here are two excellent guides that methodically take you through the new changes and abilities of the Terran buildings and demonstrate how the Terran units work. It's a bit old, but most of the information on that particular build of the game is still true.

News: Force Unleased 2 Comic Con Preview

If you want Star Wars, look to the games and not the movies to satisfy your hunger. The original Force Unleashed was a great game and a surprise hit. Later next year another Star Wars MMO will debut from Bioware. Maybe the Star Wars novels are also a good source for Star Wars material, but that's a realm I know nothing about.
