Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers (Trailer)

The latest Final Fantasy CC: The Crystal Bearers’ trailer has left a mix of flavors in my mouth. First, the gameplay looks very intriguing, and action oriented. The graphics looks rather impressive, with some nice looking effects in the trailer.

What really left me puzzled was the decision on what music to play in the background. It sounds like some blues/jazz, which really has an odd feel to it.

But atleast it’s a trailer, and it actually shows off some gameplay footage.

Top 5 Most Beautiful Nintendo Games Of All Time

I have a very unique distinction between beauty, and hotness. If you watched the new episode of The Office last night, Kevin makes a good explanation of the difference. As I was looking through past Top 5 lists, I noticed that I haven’t paid homage to the beautiful games of Nintendo’s past. Today is as good a day as ever to do so.

Judging beauty is one of the hardest things to do. With so many different opinions on what truly is beautiful, the old saying rings true; it is ‘in the eye of the beholder’. So, with doing this list I’ve tried to keep it simple and limit the criteria to three main factors: looks, style, and personality. It’s quite easy to have one of those traits, but to truly grasp all three is something special.

To give you a reference as to what I mean by beautiful, here’s a picture of Miranda Kerr:

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes Of Time; Double Cross Platform?

Most of the time when a game promises to go ‘cross platform’, the end results tend to feel uninspired. Animal Crossing was the exception as it has a wonderful cross platform feature, that pretty much added a whole other aspect to the gameplay. Square Enix looks to build on that idea, when it launches what I consider a double cross platform feature.

When you think of a console-handheld cross platform system, you tend to think that the handheld portion is just some kind of cool add-on to the console gameplay. With FFCC: Echoes of Time that thought looks to be changing. Calling it a ‘Double Cross Platform’ may sound misleading but I could think of no other way to call it. The game itself will be released on both Nintendo DS, and Nintendo Wii, so you’re going to have to get really invested if you want to experience the cross platform features.

The first cross platform feature utilizes more of the DS, and puts the Nintendo Wii as the helping hand. When you boot up your copy of FFCC: Echoes of Time you’ll have the option to import Miis to your DS. I’m a little skeptical of this feature, with the main question being, How are they going to integrate a Nintendo Mii into a FFCC RPG?

The second feature was announced by Kotaku this morning. This feature sounds much more useful, though still questionable. Not only will FFCC: Echoes of Time have merely cross platform features, you’ll be able to play the game with someone utilizing the DS, while you or someone else plays on the Wii. Square Enix is able to pull this off using what’s called the Pollux Engine. What happens, is that the DS version of the game is ported to the Wii. The screen size will shrink, and there will be a border surrounding the gameplay screen, much like Wario Land if you play it using 16:9 settings. I’m a bit skeptical to see how this will prove useful, and why you wouldn’t just want to with someone else directly on the Wii.

Since there have been few details, I’ll remain open minded. Let’s hope some big questions get answered when TGS hits starts.

First Impressions

First Impression – Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo’s Dungeon

I recently re-subscribed to Gamefly because of all the great single player games that would be coming out. One of the games, de Blob is on its way after a short waiting period. During this time, I’ve had time to play one of my ‘filler’ spots on my Gamefly GameQ, Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo’s Dungeon. Little did I know this filler game would be one that I’d come to appreciate these past few days.

Let me preface this impression/review by saying that Chocobo’s Dungeon is definitely not a game for everyone. If you can look past its shortcomings, you’ll find a fun, and entertaining story to get involved in.
