OMEGA-CAST #8: Fear & Loathing in Coruscant

A hot new plate of podcast for you to engulf. Go ahead, throw it down that dirty gullet of yours. Oh, you want to know what that bubbling black ooze is? Or the gnarled tree branch looking things? Fine! Fine. If you must know what’s on this episode: more Star Wars talk (ugh, I know!), Caff complaining about a lot of things and articulating them poorly, Rendar’s lost son, the Ninja Turtles, the exhaustion of comic book culture, Riff’s first guitar solo played on whale bones, eating tortilla chips in the microphone, and more.

Hit the jump for the terror, or check us out on iTunes.

SQUARE ENIX creates ‘FINAL FANTASY COMMITTEE’ to OVERSEE FRANCHISE.

SAD SQUARE ENIX SAD.

Yeah, that’s what Square Enix needs. More fucking bureaucracy. They’ve created a “Final Fantasy Committee” to oversee the franchise. With the franchise dying a general laughingstock for gamers of my generations, it’s good to see them making an effort. Makes sense. But I’m not sure it is needed. They could just try reading any news story written about them over the last twelve years.

Keiji Inafune making SPIRITUAL SUCCESSOR to ‘MEGA MAN’ called ‘MIGHTY NO. 9′; needs us to KICKSTART THIS BEAST

Mighty No. 9.

Keiji Inafune is leaning on us to help him out. Why should we lend a hand? The dude only created Mega Man. Now he wants to launch the spiritual successor to his iconic franchise, and it goes by the name of Mighty No. 9. The only problem? Dude needs like a solid milli. Milli buckos to get this fucker off the ground.

Nintendo president calls PS4, XBOX ONE launch line-ups “MEH.”

Meh.

This is amazing. Reggie Something-Such has spent the last year seeing his Wii U largely forgotten by the world. But that ain’t stopping him from throwing around some disparaging remarks about his competition. When asked what he thought of the Xbox One and PS4 line-ups, duder dropped a “meh.”

NINTENDO announces ‘2DS'; it’s like the ‘3DS’ but lacking a dimension.

Mario is all IDK, man.

Nintendo has announced the 2DS. It’s an ugly ass rendition of their 3DS, but you know. Without the third dimension. This is actually sort of neat to me, because I’ve always been interested in Nintendo’s current handheld. I just didn’t really give a shit about the three-dimensions. Unfortunately, this 2Dimensional-S is also ugly as sin.

Cliff Bleszinski continues TEASING NEW IP.

Cliffy's something.

Just what the fuck is Dude Huge making here? Cliffy B has continued teasing a new IP, and frankly judging from the images dropped I have nary a clue as to the genre of the title.

XBOX ONE no longer requires KINECT to be plugged in. STILL GOTTA F**KING BUY IT.

NO FUCKING KINECT REQUIRED BRO.

The XBONE song and dance is a curious one. Full of twists, turns, pirouettes and shit. The latest little move in this tango is the announcement that the Xboner does not require a Kinect to be plugged in to operate. Which is sort of neat, but also like sort of “how about you don’t fucking force me to buy it then”, right? Definitely giving credence to the rumors that 2014 shall see a Kinect-less version of Microsoft’s next console.

PHIL FISH GOES APE SHIT ON TWITTER; ‘FEZ II’ is now CANCELLED.

Fez II

Thought you could live a relatively quiet Saturday on the Interwebs, friends? Wrong-o, brolo. Especially if you’re Phil Fish. The aforementioned lad is the divisive creator of Fez, and he had a good round of the Going Ape Shit Status today on Twitter. Not much later after going atomic, it was announced that Fez II had been cancelled.

Hit the jump to behold the madness.

WATCH: AWKWARD GAMER GUY at E3 pretty much NAILS IT

I DON'T KNOW.

Props to our own Faux Bot for shoving this gem across my path. It becomes quickly evident that this video is a gag. However, that doesn’t stem the awesome and accurate representation of a good portion of people you’ll meet cruising the aisles at conventions. And furthermore? I genuinely love everyone who matches this portrayal. I don’t know.

Source: MICROSOFT SIX MONTHS behind where they want to be with NEXT XBOX. Duruhroh!

SMASH.

Some people around these parts are going to lube themselves with this news and just start straight-up punishing their pink bits. (Yes Neo, I’m looking at you.) Word has come out that Microsoft isn’t nearly where they want to be in the development of the Durascal 720-Kinect 2 Leviathan, to the tune of six months.

Hit the jump for the cuts, then let me know what you think.
