FFX for PS3 and PSVita Will be a REMAKE

 

I’m usually not the type of guy that gets “floored” by announcements, but needless to type, after stumbling upon this tidbit of news I immediately cast myself onto the floor. According to PSTime, Final Fantasy X will be a full blown remake that uses the Final Fantasy XIII engine. Now it’s time for some block quoted and bullet pointed details.

 

  • Uses the same engine from Final Fantasy XIII and adapted to PSVita.
  • All that is made ​​from scratch with the new engine is the design of the characters, the aeons and stage elements.
  • The sets and scenes in HD remastered CGI will implement a “filter” FFXIII Engine.
  • The magic and some lighting effects are achieved with the new engine “Luminous”.
  • The Blitzball undergoes some small changes.
  • Will include some online options (specific details are unknown).
  • The release date in Japan is fiscal 2012.

(Editors note: I tried to edit and modify those translated details to make the most sense as best as I could with what little energy I had)

I just hope they also edit out this laugh scene.

And.. thanks for reading. 😀

Final Fantasy XIII-2 Only Needs One Disc (Xbox 360)

 

For those of you who were annoyed at having to change your disc after 10-20 hours of playing the original Final Fantasy 13 on your Xbox 360, then I have good news for you! No longer will you have to do that tiresome process of getting up, walking that extremely long journey over to your Xbox 360, pushing the eject button, take the disc out of the tray, place the swapped disc back in the box, then place the requested “new” disc into the Xbox 360 disc tray, push the disc tray back into the 360, use a towel to wipe the sweat off of your body, drink a gallon of Gatorade (you’re gonna need the electrolytes), walk that same journey back to your gaming seat, lift that ever-so heavy controller and finally resume gaming.. after watching the mandatory cutscene.

Famitsu has just confirmed this so don’t look at me like I’m trying to start an insane rumor. Toriyama insists that FFXIII-2.0937458 is just as big as FFXIII, they just minimized the CG cutscenes and just implemented event scenes where everything is in real time (I better not see “press A to do a flashy spin”).

Spartan Off Duty Episode 2

Ever wonder what Cortana was doing after Spartan XXXV fell asleep at the end of Halo 3? No need to wonder any longer , because Spartan XXXV is here to tell you in person and show you all the PSP games that Cortana was playing through for the many years when Spartan XXXV was thought to be dead. Yeah now we know what Cortana was doing during Spartans deep sleep, but what was XXXV doing? When we asked he gave us no answers, but here at 8BC we have no doubt that he was dreaming about banging Cortana and Sergeant Major Johnson in a  unholy 3-some from the unhealthy and amazingly huge morning wood he had when he woke up. Which was the exact same size when he came in for the interview. 0.0

Much Love JT
