New tri-Ace RPG teased!

tri-Ace Teaser Site here. It's April Fool's Day. I'm aware of this. Sadly, my fanboy-ism refuses me to simply dismiss this, though the website address screams "FAKE!!!" fairly loudly. At any rate: The site reminds me of Valkyrie Prof...

 
 
 

New Star Ocean: The Last Hope Battle Videos!

Since the release of Star Ocean: The Last Hope is about two weeks away in Japan, and a little less than a month away here, I was hoping to see some more Videos displaying the game's battle system come out. Square Enix has seen to this by r...

 
 
 

Star Ocean: The Last Hope's New US Release Date

It's been a long time since I've made a blog, and as my last one was about Star Ocean: The Last Hope, so shall this blog be as well. This story on Kotaku, informs us that the US release date for the highly anticipated release of Star Oce...

 
 
 

Star Ocean: The Last Hope TGS Media!

So I haven't seen any posts or media on Star Ocean 4, so I thought that I'd remedy that for the good of Destructoid! Cause what good is TGS 2008 without the juicy SO4 media? (Although most of what I've been able to find are of low quality,...

 
 
 

Ura's Serious Business: Nibelung Valesti Edition

(The original Nibelung Valesti! I still get goosebumps when Lenneth yells, "IT SHALL BE ENGRAVED UPON YOUR SOUL!") So it's been a hectic couple of weeks here, but it's been all for the better. I finally have a new job at my local Golf C...

 
 
 

E3: 2008 - Return of the "Meh"

So this year's E3 was semi-exciting for the week leading up to it, but the event as a whole was sort of "meh." I was excited to see Final Fantasy XIII on the 360, but for that being the biggest announcement at the conference, the whole e...

 
 
 

Ura's one E3 prediction!

Due to the awesome, yet bad for sony, news that FF XIII will be released on the 360 as well, I have a small prediction to make about the upcoming Sony Press Conference: Square Enix and Sony will announce a PS3 Exclusive FF VII remake. I...

 
 
 

What's With The Official US Star Ocean Website?

I was extremely happy to hear that the Star Ocean PSP remakes finally got US release dates. After taking care of some business, I went to the Official NA Square Enix website to see if they had put up an official site for Star Ocean: Firs...

 
 
 
 
 

Ura's Serious Business #2: Electric Boogaloo

So I've still been wrapped up in the Icy Grasp of World of Warcraft ever since my nostalgic feelings prompted me to re-up my account. For the most part it's been enjoyable, but I can't help but notice how utterly disinterested I've becom...

 
 
 

Yep. I'm Back....

...back to the cold icy grinding grip of World of Warcraft. It wasn't something I had planned on doing, but nostalgia over my old days playing with my friends, many of whom have long since left the game, brought me back. My account was ...

 
 
 

Happy Birthday to Niero and Destructoid!

The only good thing that ever came from G4's "Attack of the Show" was a story they did about Destructoid, or something posted on the site a while back. I don't really remember what it was about, but it doesn't really matter. What does m...

 
 
 

Valkyrie Profile DS on the way!

According to this story on Kotaku, a new Valkyrie Profile game is headed to the DS. Titled Valkyrie Profile: The Accused One, the game features a male protagonist that seeks revenge against the Valkyries and uses "a magical feather given...

 
 
 

Obligatory tri-Ace Update #1 - New Project!

So apparently this debut trailer for Star Ocean 4 has been out since December, and I only became aware of it's existence tonight. Oh well, better late than never right? I do hope that this trailer will be a sign that the series will be ...

 
 
 

Ura's Serious Business #1

Look, I don't drink.... ...But sometimes, I wish I did. :P Yes, I hate to be 'that guy,' but the past month hasn't exactly been a good one for me, and I feel a need to vent. Fear not, this isn't a complete "omuguuuu~ lief sucks" post, ...

 
 
 

Dynasty Warriors 6 IGN "Review"

So IGN has reviewed the PS3 version of Dynasty Warriors 6, giving it a paltry 5.9 out of 10. I find it hard to believe that the "Flagship" Hack-N-Slash series should get a mere .1 point better than Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of Doom, one...

 
 
 

Vote for Roll Caskett!

Seriously, go to the official Capcom blog and cast your Vote to have a US exclusive Roll Caskett themed costume that will appear in their upcomming Wii title, We Love Golf! (If you haven't already. :P) The poll is split into two polls, Ma...

 
 
 

Aspirations

One of the big reasons I started this blog, aside from my love of the site, was to hopefully use my work here as a platform to boot my writing skills and land a job as a VG journalist of some sorts. However, after reading this post by Jim ...

 
 
 

Star Ocean: Second Evolution JP Release Date Set

Well the Star Ocean goodness keeps on coming with the launch of the Star Ocean: Second Evolution website, along with the Japanese release date of April 2nd, 2008. The website details the only really big changes to the game so far are th...

 
 
 

No Need for Stagnation!

So seeing as how I have finally moved into my new place, I've been searching for topics to write about, and I'll be damned if I can find anything specific to write about at length that hasn't already been beaten with a PVC pipe thats spli...

 
 
 

I ain't dead yet!

So my roomate decided to cut our internet and cable since he's all but moved out and I've spent the last month sans internet. After the move this weekend, I should be back to writing stuff and hoping people read it. Untill then. Ura

 
 
 

New Trailer for Star Ocean: First Departure!

Look, I don't speak or read Japanese... But this fact doesn't stop me from visiting the Star Ocean: First Departure website on a daily basis. Today, they updated the Special part of the site with a new Trailer in anticipation of the gam...

 
 
 

Totaka's Song

So I was checking the Smash Dojo today and I noticed they had a new sound clip up from SSBB's soundtrack. It apparently comes from an old Game Boy game called "X" that was only released in Japan. I checked it's entry on Wikipedia becaus...

 
 
 

The Life and Times of a Video Game Clerk

Growing up, I've always wanted to work in a field that dealt with Video Games in some form or fashion. I'm still aspiring to be a writer who focuses mainly on information and opinion about Video Games, but when I was old enough to drive ...

 
 
 

Beta, Time Management

So I've been finding it increasingly hard to manage my time between the games I play. Alot of it stems from the fact that working for Game Crazy gets me, among other things, free game rentals at Hollywood Video, and since I've only had my ...

 
 
 

Alpha

So what exactly can I write about in my first post on my new shiny Destructoid Blog with a crappy looking, self made header? It's hard to think of something meaningful at 5:40 in the morning. I'll just post this for the moment and write s...
