Why I Failed Shameless Gaming Month

PXOD guest contributor Trjn ran a piece at the end of June that declared July to be “Shameless Gaming Month“, that magical time of the year where there’s not a lot of titles coming out so you can power through your backlog. I, however, failed spectacularly, and haven’t finished a single game. Here’s why.

Meet The New Boss. Same As The Old Boss?

If there’s one constant in videogames it’s the boss fight. Across genres, from Mario to Mass Effect: they’re here to stay. But why do we have them? Are they a relic of gaming past? Or an essential aspect of games?

Ten years of PS2 in North America

On 26th October 2000 Sony released the PlayStation 2 on North American shores. A decade on, with 145 million units sold (a number that’s still rising) and over 2000 games developed for it, it is not only the best selling home console of all time but a true gaming icon that has secured its mark in the annals of history. To mark its 10th year on sale in the US, some of our PXOD writers have written about their fond memories, experiences of and thoughts on the PlayStation 2.

Games That Should Not Be Remade

On a recent debate I was in on Twitter, the topic of re-makes and re-imaginings came up. Stuff like Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix (it’s still quite a mouthful to say), Bionic Commando Rearmed, and God of War 1 and 2. Old games with a new coat of paint, or new features added to the originals. Obvious contenders for “Games That Should Be Re-Made/Re-Released” stepped up, games like Final Fantasy 7, Metal Gear Solid, Ico, Shadow of the Colossus. Some of these, and more, feature on the polar […]

FFXIV has release date and more info

Upcoming Square-Enix MMO Final Fantasy XIV has been dated for release on PC for September 22. Which strikes me as quite soon, and very bad timing for my university education. The PS3 version will not be released until March next year. I guess it’s easier to release to PC, fix all the bugs that will no doubt be around for the first few months of the game, then work that all into the PS3 release along with any optimizations.

Guest Impressions: Final Fantasy XIII

By Rachel Fogg :DISCLAIMER-This is simply my humble impression of the JP final build, nothing more or less, things may be altered in the Widerelease of XIII. I don’t know.

Well, I went, saw and played about…4 hours of the game.

Footage of Fortress aka ‘FFXII-2’

Some leaked tech footage of Fortress. This is belived to be from Grins work, so quite possibly nothing like what the final project will become. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D1U_0EoWkIE] Fortress was originally worked on by Grin before their closure. After the closure concept art and various assets were leaked and we all got a good glimpse of this western made Final Fantasy game. The game seems to be a real time RPG, a far cry from traditional main series FF titles. My take (in no way influenced by my current game) is that it looks like a rather […]

Final Fantasy XIV Beta Announced

Square Enix are looking for beta participants for the PC version of there upcoming MMORPG FFXIV. This seems to be the real deal for beta testing, not one of those ‘demo-named-beta for pre-orders’ type things you get recently. As you’ve no doubt worked out the beta would give you the chance to get a sneek peak at the new MMO, as well as a free MMO to play for a while. I would guess that they’ll be looking for experienced MMO’ers, specifically ex-XI guys, though new guys may have equal chance to get […]
