Pokémon Conquest European Release Date

Yes, the European release date for Pokémon Conquest has finally been announced. July 27th we can find it in our stores. 

A little too late for me though, as it appears it will cheaper (and probably faster) to import an American copy.

 Are you playing this game yet? Are you enjoying it?

Sonic Fan Film Has a New Trailer

For those not in the know, Sonic Fan Film is exactly that; a live-action fan film based on the Sonic the Hedgehog series. Brought to life by film maker Eddie Lebron and his Blue Core Studio, the film hopes to replicate the success of their very well received MegaMan fan film

My main concern regarding such a project is the volatile Sonic fan community. Being a Sonic fan myself I know how we can be very defensive about the Sonic series, at least when we're not poking fun at it, and I wouldn't be surprised if this film is ripped to shreds once released. Personally I want to be impressed by what I see, but it's hard to do so. Sonic 2006 tried to bring Sonic to a realistic setting and failed miserably, so to make a live-action film featuring a CGI Sonic makes no sense to me.

This being said, it's an ambitious project and those involved should be commended for what they have already achieved in the trailers alone as well as managing to get Jaleel White involved, the original voice actor for Sonic's American, televised adventures.

We'll see how this goes for now. But have any of you out there been following this film? Have you seen the MegaMan film? Let us know what you think in the comments below!

Square Enix's New Graphics Engine Previewed

I enjoyed playing Final Fantasy XIII, I thought the story was solid, though the gameplay was extremely linear. I also enjoyed playing Final Fantasy XIII-2, for the most part, though the last couple of hours of the game made me really dislike it, and it will take me a while before I can play it again.

However, seeing the demo above of Square Enix's new graphics engine I am looking forward again to FF XV, even if the story's crap, the graphics are going to blow my mind.

Amsterdam Day Trip

Just one very small section of Amsterdam
Yesterday Michael and I decided to use a couple of day tickets we had saved for the train and make our way to Amsterdam.

Michael had never been before, and though I'd been there a few times in the past, I didn't really remember it very well. Us being us, of course, we looked up computer game shops before we left. We found one very interesting shop called Game Over?, and we stopped by here first, as it was just outside the central station.
