Final Fantasy fans who got excited over reports of FFXIII releasing in 2008 have sadly been the victims of poor translation, as Square Enix officially falsifies recent reports.
It was widely reported that, in an interview with Japanese Dengeki Magazine, series boss-man Motomu Toriyama stated the game would be ready for a 2008 release. Not so, however, as Square releases a statement to clarify: "Although information regarding the release date of FINAL FANTASY XIII has been reported by certain
Yesterday our jaws were left stuck to the floor after watching the Far Cry 2 tech demo showing off the incredible capabilities of the engine. Today, we've been granted five new screens.
Better-looking than Crysis? Take a look at these shots and decide for yourself.
It also begs the question what kind of PC hardware will you require to get the game running at that level of detail? But then it is coming to Xbox 360 and PS3 too, which Ubisoft confirmed at the start of the year.
Everyone knows that Square Enix can produce some incredible CG images, but will the PS3 Final Fantasy games be the first to look nearly as good in-game?
Square has sworn to use the "full specifications" of the PS3 with the RPG sequels, and Japanese Famitsu magazine has unleashed the first glimpse of its latest work - Final Fantasy Versus XIII.
Although the slightly grainy images on FinalfantasyXIII.net probably don't do the game justice, the character models look nice, and they show off some
THQ has said that it won't be making any more games from the Stuntman or Juiced franchises, presumably because they're not bringing home the bacon.
Within the company's recent financial update is word that THQ expects to record non-cash charges of approximately $27 million related to "the company's decision not to pursue its Juiced and Stuntman intellectual properties" as well as "the cancellation of the PlayStation 3 version of Frontlines: Fuel of War (and Destroy All Humans!: Big Willy
If this new tech video is anything to go by, Far Cry 2 will be one of the most realistic-looking games so far:
This footage is a very brief taster of what the graphics engine behind the new Far Cry sequel can do. Set in Africa, the trailer shows a stunning level of detail in the environment and some impressive lighting affects.
Picture how nice it'll render the explosions when you shoot a zebra with a rocket launcher.

In one of its traditional ten-minutes-'til-home-time press releases, Ubisoft has revealed that the sequel to Far Cry will be coming to Xbox 360 and PS3 as well as PC.
The Africa-set follow-up recently saw a month delay, putting its release back to March - though from what little we've seen of it so far we'll be impressed if it even makes it out that early.
It's nice to see that home consoles at least aren't getting a watered-down port this time around (not that Instincts was at
Some people say you can have too much of a good thing, but we say they can bugger right off. A cake is good, right? But are two cakes bad? No, theyre just more cake, and we like cake so well take all we can get. Om nom nom.
In gaming terms, the only thing better than a great videogame is a great videogame that acts as the start of a great franchise. Final Fantasy, Burnout, Super Mario Bros… We love them not only because theyre great but also because of what they later gave us. The only

December is the month of giving and, better yet, receiving. December is the month when sugarplum visions of $400 consoles and $60 games dance through your head. And, of course, December is the month when your loved ones usually just cheap out and buy you a gift card instead.
