  • Opinion: Nonsense: Of Course PS Vita's Not Hitting the US Dec. 31

    It seems some in the media are comfortable speculating about the PS Vita's release date yet this year, right up to the point of phony baloney headlines based on obvious non sequiturs. ZDNet noticed Amazon's placeholder release date--December 31, 2011--for the PlayStation Vita and Wii U after reading a bizarrely straight-faced Washington Post story, and decided, well, that it was newsworthy...in the face of overwhelming evidence (and official word) otherwise.

  • Opinion: Knights of the Chalice a Tough, But Rewarding, Game

    Knights of the Chalice ($24, free demo) is a cheerfully old-school game in which blocky, two-dimensional characters wander a blocky, two-dimensional world in order to gut and eviscerate everything that moves and haul off as treasure everything that isn't nailed down. In some contexts, this would be the work of sociopathic brigands; in the world of role playing games, it's called "adventuring."

  • News: Rebuttal: Remaking Final Fantasy VII Would Be a Bad Idea

    Japanese RPG fans are really passionate about the whole issue of whether or not Final Fantasy VII should be remade. In fact, not long after McKinley posted his passionate opinion on the matter, I got two separate pitches from freelancers wanting to write a rebuttal. But as McKinley is my peer here at GamePro, maybe it's best that I respond myself. I don't have any illusions that this piece will put the issue to bed for good, but I can at least explain why I think remaking Final Fantasy VII would be a bad idea.
