Finally! Super Time Force Ultra (STFU) comes out on Steam today and I’ma grab a copy like my life depends on it! There’s a trailer after the jump if you don’t know why I’m all hot and bothered about it.
Oh man, this is awesome! Good Smile Co. will be bringing the master of duct creeping, Solid Snake, to their Nendoroid collection.
At Square Private Party 2008, the company confirmed Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep for PSP in 2009 and Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days for Nintendo DS this Christmas in Japan. We still don’t know if we’ll be getting a simultaneous release as is the case with the vast majority of Square’s big projects, so it’s likely that these titles won’t come to America until 2009 or later. On the other hand, we’re getting Kingdom Hearts Coded this year.
KH: 358/2 Days occurs between KH: Chain of Memories and KH2, telling the story of Roxas from his creation up until his fight with Riku after which he appears in Twilight Town. Birth by Sleep is in fact a prequel to the very first Kingdom Hearts in which we’ll play as Terra, Ven and Aqua to reveal parts of the saga’s plot that are currently unknown. Kingdom Hearts Coded is a puzzle game based on King Mickey’s story and it’s exclusive to phones.
So Christmas eve has come and gone, but you got a Wii for your brother, son, mother-in-law (face it, it’s just an excuse to play it without raising your electricity bill!), and we’re scarcely in December 27th, but someone in the family already lost a tooth or has an elbow fractured or can’t pee straight anymore. Well, you can feel better in knowing you’re hardly the only one.
Either people in the US are the clumsiest people on Earth or the Wii is a death trap in disguise as a gaming console, because Wiihaveaproblem.com has all these gnarly photos of users who won’t be playing it for a while. From a woman with a purple eye courtesy of her drunken husband while on a Zelda adventure, to a man with cuts in his wrist due to the wristband on the wiimote being too flimsy, those who are planning on getting the hottest console this year should check this website out and be warned.
The Frag Dolls, gamer girls who play very well, recently won the first Rainbow Six Vegas tournament during the finals of the Cyberathlete Professional League (CPL) held in Dallas, becoming the first all-female team to win a professional gaming event.
The team was formed by Amy “Valkyrie” Brady, Emily “Seppuku” Ong, Alyson “Calyber” Craghead, and Nelly “Psyche” Morel, four members of the Frag Dolls, which comprisses a collective of women who play games professionally. This particular team is sponsored by Ubisoft and to win they defeated team “The Unknown” who up until now were undefeated in the league.
Team Astromono hopes one of these girls will make it to Panama City and kill our editor-in-chief with a rifle from at least 6 kilometers away. We also hope for mashed potatoes and vinagre, and an anual suscription to LaTlacua.com, but that’s got nothing to do with this news.
From everyone here at Astromono, we want to offer our deepest apologies. Yesterday marked 20 years of Final Fantasy, one of the most important games for the Astromono. The bastard gave us a heavy beating and made us write this story.
The first Final Fantasy came out on the NES back in December 18, 1987 and it’s since become the quintessencial RPG in this side of the planet. The innovation in each new chapter, combined with the flow of it’s many stories and the detailed attention to it’s unique and memorable roster of characters makes it one of the most important franchises in the video games industry and entertainment worldwide.
Aeris’s death, Cecyl becoming a Paladin, Sabin lifting a burning house using nothing but raw strength from his muscles (while Celes looks for a girl inside said house), Quistis saving Squall and Co. from a metal spider in Dollet and many other memorable events have been edged in the memories of countless fans over the years, challenging the very idea that a fantasy could end if it’s this good.
Astromono encourages you to dust off your NES or fire up your virtual console and get reminiscing till your eyes fall out from slumber or you collapse in a pool of your own drool.
I decided to start a blog. Great. I’m hungry. Well, if you’re reading then you probably don’t have much to do or you’re a friend to whom I asked their opinion. Take your time to soak up all this nothingness and leave a comment.
This is the only blog from a space animal, courtesy of Astromono, who has lent us his virtual space after lots of begging, to see if I can save myself.
