This latest brawler from Square-Enix includes sixteen heroes and thirteen villains ranging from Final Fantasy I to Final Fantasy XII. The complete list is looking rather exciting…

I’m sure we have all heard and grown tired of the old cliché of making sure to never judge a book by its cover. It is assumed that in doing so, one could wrongfully pass up a good book with a bad title for a terrible book with a great one.

Needless to say, all expectations I could make, based on the title alone, were happily met and exceeded. Read more… »

You can safely gorge on this week’s update after the break.

There are a lot of “decent” Playstation Network games out there right now, but only a handful that deserve to be called “great”.  These diamonds in the rough are not always completely new and original ideas, but instead tend to be fresh approaches to older, tried and true, gameplay styles.  The most recent example of this is Shatter.

Created by Sidhe Interactive, Shatter takes block-breaking gameplay mechanics and brings it into the 21st century with gorgeous visuals, a bass thumping soundtrack, and new physics enabled controls, all for $7.99. Read more… »
