  • Final Fantasy XIII demo to be two-plus hours long

    Remember this demo? Japan’s Famitsu magazine reports that the upcoming Final Fantasy XIII demo will be upwards of two hours in length. A two-hour demo, people! Who has that kind of time nowadays? Well, I do, but I don’t have a PS3, nor do I have any intention to get one, so… The demo, remember, comes with Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete (on Blu-ray, ergo the demo… Read More

  • N96 demo site up and running

    The N96 – which is similar to the N95 but is one more better – has finally gotten its own special Flash-based web-tour. It goes into all the dirty details regarding GPS, music playback, and Internet browsing but sadly leaves out the cool bloopy music we’re used to when we see these sorts of tours. Nothing amazingly exciting but if you’re a Nokiard you might get a kick… Read More

  • Street Fighter IV demo next month

    I haven’t been to Japan in over two decades, so I’m pretty sure I’m due for a trip out East. We know Street Fighter IV is coming and now we’re being told that a playable demo is coming next month. The product manager spilled the beans on the game’s official Japanese Weblog days ago.

I don’t know anything about it, but after watching the trailers and perusing the Web for other tidbits I won’t lie when I say this is going to be an awesome game. So frigging awesome that I’m going to reinstall Bootcamp or, now that I think about it, VMWare Fusion just so I can download and play the demo tonight! It’s… Read More

  • Gran Turismo 5 Trailer

    Very few video games hold my interest except for Tetris, Moto GP 3 and whatever FIFA game I have for my PS2. It’s no secret that I loathe the PS3 and I make it known if anyone asks my opinion on it or even if they don’t ask. It’s a terrible console, but it may have piqued my interest if for only 2 seconds. I’ve been a hardcore Gran Turismo fan since Day 1. I… Read More

  • Credit Cards Required to Play Demo Wii at Gamestop

    . Apparently they tried tethering these wireless controllers, but the experience just wasn’t the same and it just made people cry. In unrelated news, Gamestop is not selling Zune games, assuming the Zune plays games, and Sony sucks the big rock because they didn’t give out enough schwag at the annual Gamestop manager’s conference.
