The Daily Hotness: That’s a Square Enix game name

New Square Enix game Bravely Default: Flying Fairy debuted recently and it looks totally neat, largely because of the art style. I was so impressed by the fact that the 3DS finally has a piece of software that I’m interested in that I almost missed another innocuously, inanely named Square Enix game! I don’t know that I’m building up a tolerance to Square’s naming conventions, though — I do love joking about them. This name just — surprisingly — makes more sense than most of their recent game names. Maybe because it doesn’t have numbers?

Jonathan Holmes reviewed two Bit.Trip games, awarding the Wii version a staggering 10/10, Nick Chester got his cowboy on with a review of The Gunstringer, Nintendo dropped a bunch of news in their pre-TGS conference — Nubageddon is still a thing — and a bunch of other things went down on 9/13.
