Battlefield 3: Alpha Footage Leaked On Youtube

It appears that a youtube user has leaked alpha gameplay of the upcoming Battlefield 3. It certainly does surpass my expectations, but keep in mind, I don’t normally play FPS games. Still, it’s worth a look, even if it does somewhat smell of publicity stunt. I can not imagine how these videos have not been

Pinkie Pie Vs. Derpy Hooves… Fight!

Or at least we can only hope! Little is known about the mod at the moment, but it looks promising. It is currently going as “MLP: Fighting is Magic“, a working title which will likely stick. The mod/dev team, dubbing themselves “Team Mane6” have a rather brief FAQ, and if they deliver what they promise

E3 Wrap-up (Day 1)

So day one (for us) of E3 is behind us – and given that the demo and interview are scheduled for tomorrow, today was something of a bonus day for us.  For those following our E3 tweets some, or most, of this might be repetitive, but here’s what we learned. Character Creation We didn’t get

Famitsu Developer Q/A from April 9th

Pop quiz! 1)  What’s the name of the server Final Fantasy XIV testers are currently playing on? 2)  How are FFXIV surnames and FFXI character names related? 3)  Can players level up in FFXIV? You don’t need to be an alpha tester to know the answer to these questions although knowing some Japanese would help.

This Week in the Magazines: Famitsu Interviews Tanaka and Komoto

I’m back!  I’ve moved into a brand new apartment that is much nicer than my old place.  It’s also not flooded out and molding which is a plus.  Sadly, moving meant no Internet access for awhile.  I’ve been wondering about what’s been happening in the world of FFXIV and it seems like a ton of

Alpha Test Leaks (an Op-Ed)

If there’s one thing worse than not enough information provided to Final Fantasy XIV fans, it’s too much information provided to Final Fantasy XIV fans. In our quest for knowledge about this exciting new game, it’s easy to forget that we’re only a small part of the potential player base and that the consequences of

Dengeki Games Vol. 7: Keep Your Name?!

Surprise!  While Weekly Famitsu and Dengeki PlayStation are the two biggest sources of information we have for FFXIV when it comes to magazines, there are a few other publications out there that cover FFXIV as well.  It is rare to see additional articles so close to some major announcements, but Dengeki Games decided to give

Famitsu (via Andriasang) Clairifies Alpha/Beta Timing (a bit)

Perhaps not surprisingly, the release of information at VanaFest 2010 about the upcoming FFXIV beta testing has caused quite a stir in the community.  But many (including us) may have jumped the gun in proclaiming beta to be starting on March 11.  Well in a Q&A session after the event, Famitsu attempted to clarify the

This Week in Magazines: Part 2 (Dengeki PlayStation)

We are now just one week away from Tokyo Game Show, the biggest video game expo of the year in Japan.  A trailer will be shown in the Open Mega Theatre but we won’t know until the event starts whether it’s just an old one or not.  Japanese fans are likely to feel slighted if

Dengeki: Interview with Tanaka and Sundi

These big game shows are a lot like Christmas.  You get a bunch of really good stuff all at once but there is something of a let down after it’s all over.  However, sometimes there are still little treats that come in the mail a bit late.   Once again, Dengeki has delayed the online
