Final Fantasy Dimensions

Posted by Scorch, 07 June 2012 - - - - - - · 305 views

So apparently Square Enix has announced "Final Fantasy Dimensions" (which is a port of Final Fantasy Legends, released in Japan, not to be confused with Final Fantasy Legend, the title released for Game Boy here), an all-new old school Final Fantasy game that is coming for the iOS platform. I'm extremely excited for this, I love old school Final Fantasy g...

Quick look: Sniper Elite V2

Team Fortress Classic was released in 1999 as a mod for Half-Life. It's a port of the Team Fortress mod for Quake. It contains nine classes: Scout, Sniper, Solder, Medic, Demolition, Heavy Weapons Guy, Pyro, Engineer and Spy. Of those, only one stood out for me: the sniper. Equipped with a crowbar, railgun, assault rifle, an...

Will 2011 be the year that Steam expands?

Posted by Scorch, 01 January 2011 - - - - - - · 234 views

I love Steam. Between all B&M retailer and online sales, I look forward to the Steam holiday sales the most. I see Steam expanding beyond mostly PC games, though. With it being a digital distribution service on the PC, they have so many opportunities to expand beyond PC games. If given consent, an authorized emulator could be made and there could be ports...

Best Buy's B2G1 frustration.

Posted by Scorch, 25 October 2010 - - - - - - · 285 views

I wish Rock Band 3 was part of Best Buy's B2G1F sale. That would make my decision so much easier between Smackdown vs Raw, Fable 3, SWTFU 2, Sims 3 and Rock Band 3.

It's either going to be SvR, SWTFU 2 and Fable 3 or Sims 3 if I go to Best Buy, SvR and Rock Band 3 if I go to K-Mart. SWTFU 2's demo was fantastic but it seems like a rental, and I have no i...

Indescribably amazing. Go see it.

What's your definition of "whisper quiet"?

Like many of you, I took advantage of the trade-in deal a few weeks back offered by Gamestop to pick up a new 360 S. I was looking at getting a bigger hard drive anyway, and with the trade-in of the system, wireless network adapter, 120gb HD and a game or two, it ended up being cheaper to buy the new system than to just buy the larger hard drive, so I did...

Another awesome promo item, courtesy of Microsoft

Posted by Scorch, 13 May 2010 - - - - - - · 205 views

Back in 2008, I posted a video of one of the coolest promotional items that I have ever received, the Secret Agent Clank pen (click here if you need a reminder). A few days ago, I received another awesome promo item. Coincidentally, it's another pen.

Behold.. THE ALAN WAKE PEN! (sorry about the file size and resolution)


One of the very, very few times that I can brag..

While waiting for the UFC demo, I received an e-mail from Microsoft with my game code. While I was expecting it today, I wasn't expecting it this early.. and from the talk of the e-mail, it sounds like I can go ahead and play the Beta, which I wasn't expecting either. Sweet! Thanks, MS!


Bold predictions for E3 2010.

Please note that nothing in here is official. I'm not trying to start rumors or anything.. I just think it'd be awesome if some of these things happened.

- The Nintendo 3DS is shown off and demonstrated. It creates a huge buzz and revolutionizes handheld entertainment. Many will try to emulate this but fail. Expect a traditional Mario title to lead the...

This should be fairly obvious, but just in case..

Stop buying used or refurbished systems just to save a few bucks. You don't know what's wrong with them. Sometimes you'll get lucky, but honestly, you'll have a lot more problems out of the used and refurbished ones. Quit being a cheap ass, wait a few more weeks, and buy a new system.
