A Final Fantasy Website Registered, Whoop De Doo

Today, it was discovered that by people with far too much time on their hands that “Corporation Service Company”, a group that has formerly registered domains for Square-Enix, has gotten its hands on the domain finalfantasy13-2game.com.

Playing Games The Wrong Way – Final Fantasy XIII

Playing Games The Wrong Way – Final Fantasy XIII

Alright, I’ll admit it…I’m one of THOSE type of gamers that bases an initial opinion on a game before actually giving it a chance.

Say what you will about JRPGs, whether they’ve become too linear or just so clichéd in the types of characters and the situations they find themselves in. you can always guarantee that millions of gamers here in the Western portions of the world will be lapping this game up next month.

Final Fantasy XIII, Now With DLC

Final Fantasy XIII, Now With DLC

You know, with a game that’s been in development as long as Final Fantasy XIII was. You would think that they would have the entirety of the game’s content available day one. Turns out even Square’s flagship title isn’t exempt from the DLC bug.

Hey 360 Owners, Enjoy Your 3-Disc FFXIII

I, for one, will be enjoying the one-disc only version of Final Fantasy XIII on my PS3. Call me a fanboy, but nothing drags you out of a game more than having to swap discs. The great news is that it isn’t going to be the massive 27-DVD volumes like many people made photoshops of. […]
