Kingdom Hearts 3, Finally!

I know, I know, I always stress the fact that Square Enix does not deliver what the fans want but for once I'm glad to be proven wrong. Many years after I first played Kingdom Hearts 2 a teaser trailer or the third installment in this great franchise was released at the Sony conference at E3 2013. To be honest I never thought that KH3 would see the light of day. There are only so may crappy JRPGs that I can take and I'm glad that Square Enix can finally redeem itself be by making a decent game. I believe that KH3 will help make Square Enix the studio it once was. I have a feeling that there is going to be a bit more waiting but the short teaser with the pretty graphics as well as the fact that this games is currently in development has made it hard to get rid of the stupid grin on my face.

Let's See If I Rage Quit

Just out curiosity, I want to see how far I can get into Halo 4's campaign on Legendary with the Mythic skull on without rage quitting. I'm not the greatest FPS player but I think I just might be able to get to the end of the game. Wish me luck, this is going to be one long and arduous task.

Updated Final Fantasy 7?

There has a rumor flying around lately that an updated version of Final Fantasy 7 (FFVII) will be released on the PS3 in Europe. When I mean updated, I mean of a tweaked iteration of the beloved RPG. It is claimed that this version of the game will allow players to compare their party's stats with their friends over PSN. Another tweak to the game is that you are given the ability to temporarily max out your party's abilities whenever you get stuck. I don't know if it's just me but I think this "new" version of FFVII is pretty lame. The fact that you can cheat your way out of a tough battle, there isn't gratification. Call me old school but it feels rewarding to finally beat a boss after grinding and leveling up your characters to the best of your ability. Essentially this rumored FFVII pretty much has a built in "Game Shark" (haven't seen those things since the 90's). Rumors aside Square Enix claims that this game is not in development and their new Final Fantasy games take priority over a re-release of FFVII. I have a feeling we will never see a remake of FFVII but if and when it is released, I want a fully updated game with pretty 21st century graphics.
