I have always been a .Hack fan. I watched .Hack//Sign and played through most of the original .Hack games. Lately I have been catching up on the anime series which made me think a few things. With all of the MMOs out there, why has no one tried to introduce some sort of hidden event like .Hack? WOW always has world, seasonal, and end game events…What if they decided to leave one little NPC to drive a hidden quest line that could tie in to reality? This type of event would be perfect for folks like me who want to play the game, but not spend every day doing daily quests or dungeons. If you don’t know what I’m talking about I urge you to look into the .Hack//Sign anime series. What do you think? Is this something that would be a game changer for all the MMORPGs out there?
The next batch of single player DLC for the hit game Mass Effect 3 has just received an official release date via the @Bioware twitter handle. The DLC will be available for download on Xbox 360, PS3, PC’s on August 28th 2012 with European PS3 players joining in the following day of August 29th.
Early details of the Leviathon DLC indicate Shepard will be hunting down and possibly allying with a rouge Reaper. Bioware also released a batch of new wallpapers to celebrate the release.
You have to give credit to Masashi Hamauzu for stepping up and really delivering the music Final Fantasy deserves. He had some big shoes to fill, Nobuo Uematsu is not any easy composer to replace. It was a shock to hear that after nearly 20 years Nobuo Uematsu decided his time was done.
Masashi Hamauzu was first hired on to assist Nobuo Uematsu with the score for Final Fantasy X. He was lead composer for Final Fantasy XIII’s soundtrack. Masashi was also the main composer for Dirge of Cerberus , which was performed by the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra. As of January 20, 2010, he has left Square Enix. What a short lived but phenomenal career. Final Fantasy XIII and XIII-2 are among my new favorite gaming soundtracks. Continue reading
The first announcement and teaser came early 2006, since then there has been only silence. Leaving fans in complete darkness with anticipation and skeptical theories. Over the years I have been one of those faithful Square Enix fans to slowly lose my loyalty and faith within the company to actually go through with what they claim. I feel foolish, oddly betrayed to believe these trailers meant for something greater. This was going to be the first Final Fantasy that was really getting my blood pumping in a long time. Since Final Fantasy X I have felt a lack of passion and will to push themselves even harder to make a great game. Continue reading
Today EA announced that the Bioware created MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic, will be going free to play this fall. Players will be able to enjoy the game up to level 50 with a few restrictions. The restrictions prevent players from accessing new content and some advanced player features, not sure what those are yet, but some of the restrictions can be unlocked by using Cartel Coins. No specific date was given, but it is coming. I haven’t played an MMO for quite some time, but I may just have to try this out.
E3 has traditionally been held at the LA Convention Center with a few exceptions. However, at the end of this years E3 no dates or locations were revealed due to some conflicts with the city of LA and maybe other things. Today on twitter, the ESA announced that E3 will continue to be held in LA through 2015. The 2013 E3 event will be held on June 11th through June 13th. Here’s hoping me make it next year!

For those of you who haven’t been paying attention Fall of Cybertron continues where High Moons beloved previous game War for Cybertron left off.

I have been fighting the urge to watch Adventure Time for a while now. I saw a little bit of one episode and thought it was entertaining, but it also left me thinking I would get addicted if I started to watch more episodes. After watching the above trailer, along with a glowing endorsement from Annette, I may just have to start. What do you think about this trailer and the show?
