Add the upcoming "Final Fantasy XII" and even "XII" to that list too. Square-Enix was on record, after FFX, that the developers were officially bored with turn-based games. Their work since then certainly proves that.

Is FF: Crystal Chronicles any good? I just remember some mixed reviews about it.

Wow gaming has been slow. Nothing hugely important has been going on lately. Only a few things I noticed.

-The first PS3's will be shipped to Europe, but still launched on the Nov. 17th date that the US has.

-"Star Fox DS" has been renamed Star Fox Command. Not sure if that's a hint about the gameplay or what.

-Rumors going around that the Wiimote could also work as a mic, headset, and phone. I bet it chops your onions for you too
http://www.gamespot.com/pages/news/s...ic_id=24657269

-Oh and here's a really cool HD video of the fishing elements in Twilight Princess. Just to show how the graphics are coming along. They look amazing.

Few tidbits here and there. Nothing too huge unless you're interested in these type of things.

News:

*Super Paper Mario and Children of Mana both seem to have release dates now. I plan on picking both up if they turn out good
http://www.gamespot.com/news/6151982.html

*So are the rumors true that Microsoft could be planning their own attempt at handheld console success? Read to find out
http://www.gamespot.com/pages/news/s...73&sid=6152016

*Come September of this year you can finally see who's kicking your ass online with Xbox Live Vision's new webcam
http://www.gamespot.com/news/6151990.html

*For anyone interested in the comparative sizes for the next-gen consoles, take a look
http://www.joystiq.com/2006/05/30/th...e-comparisons/

*So you want a DS Lite and wonder what it would be like to have a handheld that rumbles? Here ya go
http://www.joystiq.com/2006/05/30/ds...to-rumble-pak/

*Nothing important here. Just an update on the TGS' theme of "New" It will be held in September. Mark your gaming calendars

Oh and here are pictures in case you don't feel like clicking the links to the console sizes. This seems to be pretty accurate.

I am hardcore into old-school gaming right now. I really don't have that much desire to go dumping $300 for a PS3 or an XBox/XBox360(hate XBox anyway) or a Wii. I never even purchased a Gamecube or an original XBox. I only just this past January purchased a PS2, and that wasn't retail, it was from a relative. There just aren't enough really great games anymore to warrant spending that kind of money, imo.

But emulation is a godsend. I have every single NES, SNES, Genesis, and 32X game ever on my computer(which I can hook to a TV, and play with an SNES controller and Super Smartjoy USB adapter). I will soon have every N64 game on my computer as well...gotta get that N64 Smartjoy USB adaptor so I can hook an N64 controller to my computer.

Sooooooo many great games to play on First-Generation(NES, Atari), Second Generation(SNES, Genesis/32X, Turbo-Grafx 16), and Third Generation(N64, Playstation, Saturn) consoles.

And I still say that Sega's Dreamcast is still the best fourth-generation console. I just acquired Sonic Adventure through 'alternate' sources.

Old-School Gaming
