    So I'm hearing now that FF14, ie another numbered Final Fantasy, is being released in September... whaaaaa? We wait years for 13 and 14 shows up in a matter of months. I'm flabbergasted. They used FF7 music for the promo vid too, oddly.

    I remember a few years ago there was gonna be Final Fantasy 13 and Final Fantasy 13versus. Two different games. The 2nd title might've just had a title change. Dunno though.

    Does anyone here play DotA?

    My friends and I are currently getting into League of Legends, which I think is in many respects better. Heroes of Newerth is also becoming popular, but it's more of the same in comparison to DotA and not quite as sympathetic to new-comers or people who prefer bright colours (it's a dark game).

    That has to be the most one dimensional game/trailer I have ever seen.

    They tried to solve that by putting in a squirrel hero in a robot suit. I kind of like LoL's style and art direction but for some reason I can't bring myself to get off my DotA tip and play it.

    Anyone play alien swarm? My friends say it's really good and I'm downloading it now (completely free on steam)

    Anyone actually played through FF13? I pre-ordered and had it the first day it came out, but have been so busy I've played it maybe an hour total (and half that was the intro movie).

    Downloading now


    I played it for a little while, the movement took a little while to get used to but it's an incredibly fun game.

    Got to ch11 which is the point at which they make the monsters really hard and thereby force you to grind and do repetitive "hunt" quests which basically involve running around finding a harder, slightly different coloured version of the monsters that are all over the place anyway. Weak. I mean I kinda want to finish it but I'm on the first few hours of owning my new plasma anyway and Xbox is bad for burn in so I might just let it drop.

    A lot of people are saying that about the movement, but I think they must have grown up on 3d FPS games. Totally natural to me, and basically the WASD+mouselook is the standard for all relatively modern top-down shooters.

    Precisely what happened with my girlfriend. She claims she'll finish it, but I don't believe her.

    I moved on to other games after about 8 hours of playing.

    They actually developed FF14 separately from FF13. FF13 Versus is still in development, but I'm not sure if it will actually be released as this point. It's been teased for close to 3 years now with no gameplay videos in sight.
