For one-on-one games, the ability to talk to your opponent is not necessarily a good thing. When I first went online with "Capcom vs. SNK 2 EO," a $40 martial arts combat game, I began to randomly select cartoon characters for my team. When I tried to establish contact with my human opponent, the first words I heard were: "You picked Kyo. He's gay. And so are you."1

Final Fantasy X-2 launched today in Japan with customers queueing up as early as midnight and one store getting smart and opening early to attract more potential consumers. Square has shipped 1.8 million copies of the game all over Japan, obviously expecting it to do pretty well.1

Chocobo no Fushigina Dungeon: Original Soundtrack summary

Masashi Hamauzu is easily becoming one of my favorite Square composers, and is really putting Square's sound team in a fantastic position. Go back an entire 5 years before he wow-ed us with his work on Final Fantasy X and Unlimited SaGa and you find the brilliant gem that is the Chocobo no Fushigina Dungeon Original Soundtrack. From what I've heard, the game itself is horrible - and never did get released here in the United States (while Chocobo Dungeon 2 did.) You'll even find the now famous Chocobo tune reiterated yet again on this album, but as usual, taking on an even newer sound with the help of an entire orchestra on the album's Prelude track. It should be noted that the two orchestrated tracks were conducted by Koji Hajima. Once again, another game soundtrack you can play from start to finish even if you haven't played the game.

Crystal Chronicles delayed and/or canceled because of fucking France

According to Quiter, Square has delayed the release of Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles as a result of development issues with the battle system. The delay, however, is under scrutiny and Square Haven blames the French because it's always their fault when something shitty happens.1

Nintendo has stately announced that The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker has already sold an excess of 560,000 copies in North America, surpassing the number of times I have had intercourse with your mom. The Wind Waker is "the most anticipated video game in Electronics Boutique's history," according to EB reps, surpassing pre-sales of last year's GTA: Vice City. To date, worldwide sales of The Legend of Zelda series have surpassed 36 million software units.1

FFX-2, others rated

Final Fantasy X-2, which launches tomorrow in Japan, was reviewed by Dengeki PS2 and Famitsu PS2, receiving an 345/400 (90/85/95/75) and 35/40 (9/9/8/9) respectively. Other points of interest were the funky-lookin' PN03, which walked away with a disappointing 7/10, Soul Calibur 2 which took the lead this week with an 8,6 from Dorimaga, and Made in Wario, which Famitsu PS2 gave 35/40 also.1
