The pool dates are now available to select for an actual release date.

This footage certainly comes as a surprise. Kingdom Hearts 3 just came out in 2019. That probably means KH4 should be expected around holiday 2024 if not 2025.

Yeah, this video has some gameplay in it. Anybody watching this industry for as many years as I have known this is just a tech demo, a proof of concept if you will. Somebody living in their basement could have made this same clip. As far as actual gameplay or even what this new Kingdom Hearts is about is still unknown.

Square and Disney just wanted to let us know they are working on it. Hey, the real world graphics look really cool.

Square Enix not letting that Final Fantasy 7 Remake engine go to waste. It’s beautiful.

A few of the games Square Enix showed off at E3 2021 looked like they were using the FF7R, but this GOTG game really stood out to me. When the cutscene ends with them getting off the ship and the floats over to Starlord and falls steady over his shoulder, and then you take the controls, that feels exactly like FF7R. Then you have the team combat of Starlord giving commands to Gamora, Drax, Rocket & Groot. Check out the full gameplay demo below.

I think this video shows some fun and great looking moments in the game and some awful and not so well-designed gameplay.

Thor and Hulk are out there just murdering.  Iron Man shooting his little pea blaster. Then you have Captain America and the shield gameplay. That looked like a lot of fun, very fast and smooth almost like Rocksteady Batman games. After all that it's a short quick time event scene with Black Widow and Taskmaster flying through the sky.  It finishes off with a good fight between the same two, but there's not hud and a lot of talking. This game, this is the exact same gameplay demo they've been showing for the last few months does not look like a finished product. I gotta say, Hype level for this game is 0.  You tell me where you are with this game after watching the video in the comments below.

Final Fantasy XV delayed again

By: BatRastered Aug 18, 2016 | 2 Comments

Now 11/29/2016

We've been following this game since it was called Verus XII in 2011 (or was it XII-2? IDK). Another few months won't kill it... probably.

 

 

Last week my colleagues and I had the pleasure of traveling down to Los Angeles, CA for the Final Fantasy XV Uncovered event at Shrine Auditorium. L.A. is great this time of year, perfect weather day and night. We stayed hella on the beach. Anyway…

We had money specifically for merchandise with us.  We were ready, expecting a ton of cool Final Fantasy XV stuff that would only be available at the event.  Nope, nothing.  Well some Jimmy ass iPhone cases.  We didn’t even pay them any attention. 

*wtf is this? SOLD! idk...

Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX 'Combat Vignette' Trailer

By: Arthvader Aug 30, 2013 | 0 Comments

A new trailer for Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX has come out, mostly showing the combat mechanics of Chain of Memories, and mentioning 358/2 days as a cinematic movie.

Here's the Trailer:

Read full story...

The world is full! Now you can get a 1017 error when trying to purchase the game.

Straight from Square-Enix:

"Due to the overwhelmingly positive response to FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn, we are currently experiencing extremely long wait times for users to be able to log in and play. As a temporary measure, we will halt sales of FINAL FANTASY XIV: A REALM REBORN’s digital download products so we can accommodate all of those wishing to play. We are working to expand our server capacity in the coming days."

Well, that's interesting... looks like they've sold more copies than they can handle on the server side. I'm glad they're doing this so all of the pre-orders can hopefully get in and play until they work this out enough to continue selling.

GoukiJones & FnJimmy talk about Final Fantasy XIV & other Square Enix games at E3 2013.

Murdered Soul Suspect was 1 of the worst demos I saw. Besides that Wolfenstein shit. Another freezing dark room packed full of Jimmys. I was literally holding myself up from falling over. Because of what happened during this demo I have made a new rule to sit/stand near the door of game I don't know anything about. I so wanted out of that room. 

"Excuse me, pause for a second." Then I get up & stumble out over 20 nuabs sitting on the floor. Dear god never again!

I'm super hype for the Final Fantasy XIV. I've been playing in the beta the last 2 weeks & have already logged well over 40+ hours. They did a really good job on COMPLETELY REMAKING THE ENTIRE GAME. Again I digress, BatRastered had the best take. 

"Isn't it just XI HD?" Yep.

Thief. Thief looked so bad during the press conference or where ever I saw that game play demo. Maybe the Keighly. The characters just running up to you to get smacked & the terrible, horrible animation. 2004 type shit. Pass. 

I played the FFX remake for like 15 minutes. All I watched were cut scenes with 0 skipping abilities. Fuck that.

Then there was something called Final Fantasy XIII-2 X3 4 Jimmys Lighting Returns. Ridiculous! Why can't Square let go of that horrible game?!

I am hype for that Final Fantasy XV tho. Even tho none of it is quite real just yet. 

Thanks for watching & reading.

Sleeping Dogs Review

By: Cinderkin Aug 14, 2012 | 1 Comments

Started out as Black Lotus starring a female protagonist, then becoming the next gen True Crime, and later named True Crime: Hong Kong has found its home in Sleeping Dogs. Is this identity complex game worth your money? Find out in this Gouki.com Review.

Sleeping Dogs has had its ups and downs in its fairly long development cycle. Originally starting off as a new IP called Black Lotus; then being turned into the latest in the True Crime franchise and then ultimately scrapped and cancelled by its former publisher Activision back in 2010. There wasn’t much to be excited about once Square Enix decided to pick up United Front’s latest game and change the name to Sleeping Dogs. Was this a smart move for Square Enix or should Sleeping Dogs do as its name implies and be put down.

Story:

The story in Sleeping Dogs follows a man named Wei Shen who was born in Hong Kong, but grew up in the United States after his mother decided to give him and his late sister Mimi a better life in America. Wei now back in Hong Kong as an undercover cop is sent in to infiltrate a well known triad group known as the Sun On Yee (a reference to a real group known as the Sun Yee On).  Wei’s main goal is to follow triad members and ultimately cripple the organization from the inside out. Wei grew up with most of the lower class triad members, and has a personal stake in the undercover operation, which leads his handler Raymond questioning his motives. Throughout the story Wei has to remember who he is and what his true goal is, as he fights with himself mentally to break from becoming too involved with the triads.

Gameplay:

The gameplay in Sleeping Dogs is not what you would normally expect from open world sandbox games. Where most in the genre focus on gunplay more than hand to hand combat, Sleeping Dogs takes what Batman Arkham Asylum brought us and expands on it. Combat is fun and fluid with the controls being easy to pick up and understand. The game has a huge emphasis on hand to hand combat and environmental attacks, such as throwing enemies into walls or dumpsters. The game also features some of the most brutal environmental attacks like throwing enemies on fish hooks, crushing them under car engines, or slicing their faces off in a bench saw. There is also gunplay in the game, but not to what most would expect from the genre. Rarely do you have a gun or weapon in your inventory, as most times you will obtain weapons by disarming enemies and using it against them. Once a knife breaks or you run out of bullets Wei will just toss it keeping the gameplay fresh and interesting. The game uses what is called an aggressive cover system, where Wei will get destroyed by gunfire if he sits behind cover too long. What the game wants you to do is vault over cover and either disarm an enemy or take him out with a slow motion gunshot while vaulting.

Sleeping Dogs offers a ton of side missions, collectibles, and other activities to keep you entertained. Ranging from doing favors for the locals, singing bad karaoke, betting on cock fighting, or racing events. The player can even shop and purchase new clothing or vehicles. There is always something to do in Hong Kong. Driving in open world games are usually hit or miss, but Sleeping Dogs does a wonderful job making the driving accessible. Cars turn how they should, motorcycles are fast and handle great, and the boats are what you would expect. Unfortunately there are no aircrafts Sleeping Dogs, but it does offer cab rides for those that want to get around the large recreation of Hong Kong easily.

Visuals:

Sleeping Dogs looks great for an open world sandbox type of game. I can’t say it’s the best looking game of this current generation, but the character models look great, as well as the environments. Cut scenes are well done with very believable moments.  Animations seem stiff sometimes, but nothing that can take away from what the rest of the game offers. The weather effects are done nicely as well, with water effects showing on the roads, the people of Hong Kong as well as cars. The city is very lively and filled with people roaming around living their day to day lives. It’s nice seeing NPC’s carrying on conversations with each other, or talking on the phone, or even buying food from a street vendor. It’s easy to get immersed into the world and it feels real.

Audio:

The audio presentation in this game is well thought out, and is done much better than a lot of games this generation. The voice acting is superb with a great amount of voice talent ranging from Will Yun Lee, Emma Stone, Lucy Liu, Tom Wilkinson and Parry Shen to name a few. Voice acting is done with a mix of English and Cantonese language, which offers a realistic touch to each character as well as being able to understand them. The music is also nicely done, ranging from Chinese hip hop, America rock, and classic music. They really give you a variety of tracks to listen to, with about 10 radio stations. The ambient sounds are well done, as well as the NPC’s who fill the city. There is some really good humor to be had by listening to NPC’s in Sleeping Dogs.  

Overall Sleeping Dogs is by far one of the most fun sandbox action games of this generation. Whether it’s fighting thugs in hand to hand combat, or shooting up rooms John Woo style; there is a ton of fun to be had here. With a compelling story, only plagued by its length and a world filled with activities that will keep you coming back for more. This game has hours of gameplay and nonstop fun. If you are a fan of this genre and can’t wait for GTA: V then Sleeping Dogs will fill your empty void for the year. It’s a blast!

Quantum Conundrum Gameplay video

By: BatRastered Jan 26, 2012 | 3 Comments

Check out some footage of the new puzzle game by one of the creators of the Portal series.

From Wikipedia:

Quantum Conundrum is an upcoming first-person action video game currently in development by Airtight Games and set to be published by Square Enix. It is designed by Kim Swift, who formerly worked at Valve Software as the lead designer on the critically acclaimed Portal. The game is scheduled for release in early 2012 on Xbox Live Arcade, Playstation Network and Windows download distribution services

This game looks like another good physics puzzler. The style is a bit more kid-like though. One of the best things about Portal was the humor and I didn't even hear any character voices in the video. Not sure about this one.

No release date yet, but expect approval in a week or two...

According to a Facebook post by Square Enix, we should be expecting FFT: The War of the Lions on our iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touch screens any day now.

We've finally submitted the iPhone version of FINAL FANTASY TACTICS: The War of the Lions! And we'd like to tell you the release date as soon as we get the green light.

Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions is a port from the PSP version of the famous Playstation game. The PSP version featured an updated translation and improved graphics.

Apple usually takes a week or so to approve games on the app store, so get your wallets ready next week. We'll let you know when the game is given the green light and a price sticker!
