Beware the ides of March, for a tetrad of road-tripping dorks is coming your way! What I mean to say is that there’s gonna be some huge Final Fantasy XV news on March 30th. It’s all gonna go down in LA at 11:00AM Pacific Time. So, to all of those fans in Europe and Australia: I’m sorry you guys have to miss it. Granted, I’m damn sure there are a few of you who are crazy enough to stay up for it. More power to those people. So, I watched the Active Time Report yesterday. From what the guys said, the game is nearing completion; which makes them capable of providing a release date. They’ll give us that information at this event. What’s also gonna be at this event is a tech demo for the game, which will most likely bring to light the development process of this game. Of course; I doubt they’ll be able to squeeze in a decade of development time into one video. For those of you who don’t know, Final Fantasy XV began development under the XIII moniker as “Final Fantasy: Versus XIII” . After the XIII trilogy was panned by gamers and critics alike, Square decided to make this game a stand-alone title. Thus, XV was born. Shortly before the change, this game went under the radar for five years, which pissed of some people. Then, they showed it at E3 2013 with better graphics, new characters, and a new story; it was also shifted to the PlayStation 4. Fast forward to Episode Duscae, the official demo for XV. Fans praised it, save for a few minor hiccups. The developers actually listened to the feedback and tweaked everything that was wrong. BAM! Now, this game is finally nearing the end stages of development. I’m so fucking ready for this game, guys! With that said, I'm out. Peace!
Well hello there, everyone! I hope you've mastered your Hadoukens and Shoryukens because this entry is about to go into all out Akuma mode. So, Street Fighter V was just released to the masses. I, along with everyone else, was so fucking hyped for this game. Thanks to Happy Console Gamer and AlphaOmegaSin, I now know that the hype wasn't even worth it. Apparently, Capcom (Or Crapcom, as I like to call them) has released an incomplete product. As of right now, Street Fighter V has a painfully short story mode, a broken online mode, and no arcade mode whatsoever. They essentially released the beta of the game at the cost of a full experience. This is where I feel that a mini-rant is in order. What the actual fuck is wrong with gaming these days? Back when I was growing up, we got a full game; the only half-assed products we ever got were peripherals and movie tie-ins. What gives developers the right to give us, the consumers, and incomplete waste of memory space? If there's ever a moment where I'm ashamed to be a gamer, this instance is definitely it. God, please don't let Square Enix do this to Final Fantasy VII, or XV.... In a not-so-clever segue, let's talk about Final Fantasy XV. Supposedly, we're supposed to be getting some news pertaining to this title very soon. I'm not entirely sure as to what this news is going to be about though. I suspect that Square may give us a release day, seeing as we know it'll be this year. Gee, guys. This game has been in development hell for ten years. A decade after that first trailer debuted at E3, and we're finally getting this game. Granted: It's going to be a hell of a lot different than what we saw back in '06. This makes me feel old as balls right now. I mean: We've watched this game evolve from Versus XII to Final Fantasy XV for a decade; who wouldn't feel old? Well, I guess that about does it for today, guys. I'm curious: What do you guys think about Street Fighter V's less-than-great launch, and: Are you psyched for FFXV's launch? Let me know what you think in the comments! I'll see you guys later!
