…and just like that, Square has convinced me to give them my heart. Again.
‘FINAL FANTASY XV’ rises out of the ashes of ‘FINAL FANTASY XIII: VERSUS: INCOGNITO JAM’, and I’m pumped.June 10th, 2013 by Caffeine Powered
So uh, yeah. More as it comes. I’m fine with it. (Seriously, do we really care about console designs?)
This has to be good news regarding the initial buzz surrounding Man of Steel. Despite not dropping for a few more days, the son of a bitch is already in line for a sequel.
How many villains are too many villains for Amazing Spider-Man 2? Fucking no such things! Stuff it with a million-billion villains. Actually if this is setting up the Sinister Six, it could be dope.
Hello friends! This is Monday Morning Commute, the column where we share what we’re digging on in a given week. I will be honest – I’m currently treating this like a lightning round edition. The real shit is going to have to take place in the comments section. I’m trying to follow all of E3, while attempting to take a shower, jack one out, and plan a class for next week.
There’s a lot of mixed reaction to this finale on the web. After a kick in the nuts right off the bat with the aftermath of the Red Wedding massacre, the final episode of this season of Thrones brings things down a notch to a very steadily paced character piece. Longer, drawn out conversations between sometimes-unlikely pairs of characters round off the episode before ending on a strange note of Disney-esque triumph, instead of the standard game-changing fare that past finales of Thrones have employed.
More than ever, it’s palpable just how constrained the show feels by its 10-episode limit every season. There’s barely enough time in this extended finale to visit every character just once or twice and quickly touch base to set things up for Season 4.
The back half of Martin’s third novel, a Storm of Swords, will likely serve as the backbone for Season 4, while elements from later books are already creeping into the show all over the place. It’s difficult now to even decide ‘where’ in the book we are at this point; every story has stopped someplace different. It’s become a truly fascinating experience to watch how things are adapted, and if Season 3 was a good indication, the rules are quickly becoming loose with the adaptation of the rest of the saga.
Hopefully the third time is a charm for Dragon Age. Despite liking both the titles, I’ve found each to be oozing imperfection in a different way. The first game? A bit stock in its Universe. The second game? There was like two locations.
Today, it was a pretty blase Microsoft E3 conference. Then Respawn Entertainment showed why they were Infinity Ward, hanging Titanfall on my ass. I am so, so, so in love.
I want to be jaded about this announcement. Point out that the company that made this game is essentially dead. And then I hear the distinct Killer Instinct announcer’s voice, and my crusty jaded shell is vaporized.
