Break-dance fighting and beaches in the Crystal Bearers


1:00 AM on 10.05.2009



Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers... I still can't get over that name. It's got three more syllables than Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix, the game I previously thought would remain champion in the "unnecessarily long title" contest for years to come. I believe in Capcom though. Hopefully in a few years, we'll get Super Street Fighter IV Versus Resident Evil Turbo Zombie Warfare HD Wii Edition or something. That would be a triump indeed.

Anyway, back to the news. After the jump, you'll find videos depicting 16 seconds of break-dance violence and a little over a minute of a beachfront fantasy in The Crystal Bearers. It's videos like this that make me think this game is going to flop, despite how fun the game looks. I fear that Final Fantasy fans (of which there are many) will be turned off by the game's pervasive sense of humor and SD graphics, and non-Final Fantasy fans (of which there are even more) will be turned off by the, y'know, Final Fantasy-ness.

I guess I'll have to wait until Kwanzaa to see if I'm right.

Sniper: Ghost Warrior is getting a sequel, despite the first one being absolutely dreadful.  For some reason (possibly due to its generic macho name), the game sold ludicrous amounts of copies in the United Kingdom, gett...more

Sick of having to touch your touchscreen? Well, those days are over, son! The folk at Fling have used science to their advantage and released a physical analog stick that attaches to the screen via a suction cup. Yes, that's...more
