Fight Night Round 3 was a great game, but its Rock’em Sock’em Robot-style of gameplay wasn’t exactly a realistic representation of boxing. Because the game's original developer, EA Chicago, no longer exists, the franchise has been placed in the hands of EA Canada.
Senior Editor Mikel Reparaz and I got our introduction to Move at Sony's booth on the E3 show floor last week. The Fight: Lights Out is a simple boxing game which uses two Move controllers and - that's right, believe it or not - your own punches. The game itself is very tech demoey, but we didn't hate Move's motion tracking... after more calibration than we'd prefer to endure, it sort of worked. See for yourself how foolish we looked...

Our Moogle-filled demo felt like a promising mix of what worked well in XIII paired with more traditional JRPG sensibilities...
It's the first day of TGS, and one of our first stops was to check out Square Enix's hands-on demo of Final Fantasy XIII-2. Recent screens showing off the sequel's totally new time- and space-bending overmap have gotten us excited for its decidedly non-linear approach, and while the demo didn't go into time travel too much, we still saw a surprising amount of new features in FXIII-2...
In its decidedly non-linear, time-bending approach, Final Fantasy XIII-2 has positioned itself as a response to fan criticism of FFXIII, directly addressing complaints about its predecessor's linearity and lack of exploration. But how much has really changed in the sequel, and how much of it is just window dressing? It's difficult to tell by just looking at screens and trailers. To clear things up, we recently had a chance to sit down and play FFXIII-2 at length, from the very beginning through as far as we could get in a day of playtime. We can now safely say that the structure of the game is, indeed, completely different...
