Xbox Live Indie Gems: Cthulhu Saves the World {Joystiq}

Jan 7th 2011 12:53AM @ThatPete I completely agree, but I think it would be cool if XBL Indie games could give out even just 10 gamerscore, I think it'd be pretty funny to get 1g for beating a boss, or 2g for completing the whole game. That'd be a nice little incentive, but still not enough to make it worth buying spam achievement games.

Activision closing Bizarre Creations [Update: Activision confirms, options include 'potential sale'] {Joystiq}

Nov 18th 2010 6:53PM @Alexisonfire I'm studying Game Design and I'd hoped to one day work for Bizzare, as they're about 10 minutes from my hometown...

I'm now boycotting Activision and will discourage everyone I know from buying their shit.

Begin complaining, because Vaan is in Dissidia Duodecim {Joystiq}

Nov 11th 2010 2:22PM @Leyzaix
The reason for this is because Basch was originally supposed to be the main character:
"Basch was initially meant to be the main character of the story, but the focus was eventually shifted to Vaan and Penelo when the two characters were created later in development.
The development team explained that their previous game, Vagrant Story, which featured a "strong man in his prime" as the protagonist had been unsuccessful and unpopular; the change regarding Final Fantasy XII from a "big and tough" protagonist to a more effeminate one was thus decided after targeting demographics were considered."

This is widely considered the main reason that the producer and co-director Yasumi Matsuno left the development of the game (and not due to 'health concerns' - the reason SE gave). FF12 had the potential to be up there with the best in the series, it's just a shame that Square Enix felt the need to crow-bar in a teenage, shirtless main character to try and get more sales.

Nov 11th 2010 2:16PM Square-Enix really shot themselves in the foot during the development of FFXII. Long-live Matsuno!

Capcom Arcade to bring retro thrills and clever pricing to your iPhone {TUAW.com}

Oct 6th 2010 10:35AM You're right, THERE is always room for improvement. :P

Red Dead Redemption 'Liars and Cheats' DLC coming Sept. 21 {Joystiq}

Aug 28th 2010 5:34AM All I want is some single player DLC. I wanna play through John's earlier life with Dutch's gang!

R4 and other Nintendo DS flashcarts outlawed in UK {Joystiq}

Jul 29th 2010 12:39PM So, just wondering; if these have only just been made illegal in the UK then why have 100,000 of them been seized since 2009?

Thor and Amaterasu descend into Marvel vs. Capcom 3 {Joystiq}

Jul 22nd 2010 10:30AM @GumbyX I agree with you, Clover being shut down sucked, but Capcom milking Clover's games is nothing new, they've been doing it with Viewtiful Joe for a while (all those DS games and he's in TvC too).

Thor and Amaterasu descend into Marvel vs. Capcom 3 {Joystiq}

Jul 22nd 2010 9:51AM Well, I've found my character! Ammy here I come :)

Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva travel to the UK in style {Joystiq}

Jul 21st 2010 5:08PM The boxset looks beautiful. I didn't think they'd get this translated and dubbed so quick.
