Final Fantasy 9 Out For Switch, 7 Out Soon.

For those Final Fantasy fans out there, Nintendo will once again make you love them and piss some of you off. First, Final Fantasy 7 will be out March 26th which is exactly what we needed. Final Fantasy 7 on another platform. (sarcasm) Before that tho, we get Final Fantasy 9, which launched already, that day, in fact, on another platform. Because on every platform known to man almost wasn’t enough. They did, however, skip, once again, Final Fantasy 8. Don’t get me wrong I own 7 and 9 and I did on both PS one and I do on PS4. Also owned 7 on PC, so this isn’t about hating either game, I think 7 is one of the most influential of all time and both can be argued to be two of the all-time greats. My real issue is that once again Final Fantasy 8 is skipped even tho this year, and more precisely this month is the 20th anniversary of the release of FF8. Now I understand why in theory, supposedly they lost much of the original PlayStation releases code and they can’t simply port the PC version over, so there is, in theory, a valid reason, but it still sucks. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

New Tropico 6 Release Date

Not too long ago, much to the dismay of many the PC release of Tropico 6 was delayed for an undisclosed amount of time. Well, Kalypso Media has given us a release date. March 29th, 2019 and as an added bonus if you preordered before 7 p.m. (CET) January 10th, 2019 you will get the first DLC planned or 2019 free. I know the wait sucks, but not a bad trade-off really. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Devil May Cry 5 Demo (PS4)

The Devil May Cry 5 demo is a mixed bag for me. It is beautiful, it controls amazingly and has some of the most stunning sounds I have heard in a game in a long time. My issue is honestly, the combat was just boring for me. You can get your rank higher by doing some amazing combos with different combinations or, you can just mash buttons and kill everything that way. Many times your combo will still get up there pretty high. Granted I have no reason to think the main game won’t provide more of a challenge, but even the devil breaker didn’t make me feel like I needed to use it that much to win.

It also felt like they were trying way too hard to make Nero this indomitable badass and he came off like that kid in high school everyone knew was just talking tough when he really wasn’t half of what he thought he was.

While I have no interest in this game any more than I have already played it, I do think fans of the series will love it, possibly more than any game in the series before it and it will attract many new fans. For me personally tho, this isn’t one I will be buying. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Beetlejuice

beetlejuice

I know what you’re thinking, ” Torsten, please don’t say it three times in a row. We know you want to but please don’t.” Well, as much as I’d like to, I won’t. I will say Beetlejuice is the man…

Adam and Barbara Maitland were a normal, happy couple living in there big secluded house. One day they have a car accident. After journeying home, they discover they can’t leave, time has skipped forward, and they don’t appear in the mirror- in short, they’re dead. With only a confusing book on being deceased to guide them, the couple has a new problem: a new family has moved in. The Dietz’s family are almost the polar opposites, turning there once humble home into a gawdy art piece. The only living person to acknowledge the pair is the Dietz’s daughter, Lydia, a shy, gloomy girl. No matter how hard they try to scare the Dietzs away, nothing works and they are forced to try a maniacal bio-exorcist by the name of Betleguse..

What can I say other than this is Tim Burton at arguably his best. The movie is a great blend of light and dark comedy, not to mention some great musical numbers. Michael Keaton as Betleguse is hilarious and steals the show. The movie is full of great performances and cool effects. Beetlejuice is a super cool movie I recommend checking out if you never have, it’s definitely a different kind of comedy. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Why Reboots Really Shouldn’t Bother You

Now let me get this out of the way first, everyone including myself is guilty of this seeing a reboot being made and thinking aw damn it and just hating it. Hell, I still dog Power Rangers 2017. Said it looked dumb from day one, saw the movie and still thought it. Thought IT would suck and was very wrong. That being said the newest thing is the live action Alladin, people are hating Genie.

I think he looks like nightmare fuel but hey whatever, that isn’t the point. I loved the original and will watch this regardless. Here is the thing tho and it goes for all remakes. If you watched the original the remake is not made for you, you are not the target audience. I know, it is a hard pill to swallow, but you aren’t the ones these companies are selling to.

I loved the original Alladin, but they aren’t making this for me to relive my childhood, they are making this so my kids can enjoy their version of the movie I watched. It isn’t limited to this one either. IT, Power Rangers, Godzilla, and the list goes on and on and that is just movies, none of these are really made for fans of the original they are made to attract new fans. It is why Godzilla looks so vastly different than he used to. Now sometimes this works out and old fans love it anyway, and many times they are pissed.

This will, of course, upset some people, in fact, a few of you may read this and unfollow my blog. How dare I say these things aren’t made for us or for everyone. Trust me, I know it sucks, it is just the cold hard truth. The older you get, the less they design things specifically for you. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
