Square Enix says there was enough leftover content for two Final Fantasy XIII games.Square Enix says there was enough leftover content for two Final Fantasy XIII games.

So basically fans can expect a Final Fantasy XIII-2 type of game sometime after the official release of Final Fantasy XIII(-1). Either that or you'll be paying for a whole bunch of DLC content for many years to come. Joy.

Next Legend of Zelda game will not be released until it is 'perfect'.Next Legend of Zelda game will not be released until it is 'perfect'.

This comes straight from Nintendo's President, Reggie Fils-Aime. Still no word on a release date so this title may not see the light of day until 2011. But hey, you have to figure that 'perfect game' will take some additional time to get right.

Daily Grind: Gross

Name: Vin (aka lozenge boy)
How Vin feels today: Gross @ 1:12:09 PM
What Vin really wants today: To go home and not breath on anything that happens to be a living thing. Seriously, enough with this cold/flu crap.

Music Stuck in Head: Panama / Van Halen
I'm confused. Is this tune about a girl or a car? Or both? What does any of that have to do with Panama? Upon closer analysis, the song is actually about a car. Thank you Wikipedia.

Stuff to do today:

  • Take more DayQuil
  • Break down and download Dragon's Lair app for iPhone
  • Downloaded
  • This is really quite a nostalgic journey back to the arcade
  • Here's a video showing off most of Dirk's many demises on YouTube
  • Find a copy of Mad Dog McRee next

This information comes directly from the folks at Square Enix. Get ready to set aside a big block of time for this one (I'll be scheduling out a couple of weekends months in advance - my game play time is limited these days). Remember kids, this comes out state-side on March 9th.

I'm not sure if I should be overly proud or overly sad that I have actually managed to play most if not all games on this list this past decade. Is there an achievement for that?

I'm sure this was a great use of police time who had to respond to this 'emergency' call. Whatever happened to just pulling the plug from said video game console? Are parents not allowed to do that anymore?

I've yet to play the original Batman: Arkham Asylum but I've heard very good things from those who have. Didn't the original game only come out like yesterday? Edit: it came out August 25th of this year. Still, that's a pretty short timeframe.

LucasArts announces sequel to Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.LucasArts announces sequel to Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.

To say that I was a big fan of the first game is a bit of an understatement. I'll be buying this the day it comes out which of course has yet to be revealed (2010 is the only date thus far). LucasArts has a high resolution version of the trailer over on their site for those so inclined.

My Nintendo Wii has gathered some dust as of late (mostly due to the addition of the Xbox 360 in my household) - perhaps some of these titles can rekindle my interest in the console. Look out 480p, here I come.
