Just when you thought that the Wii was getting a little bit too synonymous with Mary Kay parties and your grandma, news comes that reminds us that there are still companies that cater to folks who spend more time in dark basements. Today, Atlus USA is that company, because it announced this morning that it’s once again teaming up with Sting, the makers of Yggdra Union and Riviera: The Promised Land, to bring North America an incredibly, incredibly emo-sounding RPG for the Wii (oh, and also the PS2) called Baroque. *surprised look*

Do the evolution

The community has erupted in outrage over GameSpot and Eidos shirking ethics for the sake of a buck, as both Eidos and GameSpot, as well as GameSpot’s parent company CNET, have endured a volley of anger over the past 4 days.

But you know who’s really getting more flak than it deserves? Eidos.

Crisis Core blog part 1

By Phil | September 19, 2007 at 1:10 pm

It’s been a long time coming.

Little about Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII passed the collective lips of Square Enix for over a year after its initial 2004 announcement, leading some to question the game’s existance.
