After the impressive trailer that we were shown at E3 2006, Final Fantasy fans around the world were left with dropped jaws. As the first Final Fantasy to appear on the PS3, gorgeous graphics appear to be par for the course. The game has been in development for quite some time now and E3 2008 could very well mark the first time we are allowed to get our hands on this epic title. In fact, this may be Sony’s biggest PS3 exclusive, so count on it being nothing less than a masterpiece.
The Locust may be down but they are certainly not out. Marcus Fenix will once again be commanding Delta Squad as they continue attempting to exterminate the Locust Horde. Players can expect larger environments, more epic encounters (pun intended), and, of course, dueling chainsaws. As a sequel to the incredibly successful and exclusive Gears of War, Gears 2 will surely have Xbox 360 owners heralding the arrival of this “bigger, better, and more badass” sequel when it arrives this fall.
The potential for Kratos' first title on the PS3 is staggering. Looking at what was achieved in God of War: Chains of Olympus for the PSP, the mere mention of the servant-turned-God's first outing on the big, shiny, black box has many gamers begging the gods for a speedy release. While there isn't a lot of information about the game and it is likely still quite a few months from gracing our televisions, God of War 3 will undoubtedly have Kratos violently ripping his way through countless mythical beasts on his quest for vengeance.
We've been waiting over a year for this game to get localized and released in the US. The wait may have been a long one, but now the game is nearly in our hands. Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility looks to bring everyone's favorite farming simulator/RPG to the Wii, complete with motion controls. Prepare to hoe, shovel, plant, and water your way to a successful farm utilizing intuitive movements by the end of this summer.
