RDR Game Night: Who Shot Who(at)

You! What did you do last Saturday, June 27th, from 9PM to 11PM, Eastern Time? Hum, lacking an alibi? You just missed out on our first Red Dead Redemption Game Night, and I’ll tell ya, it was lots of fun!

Sinlock started the party, since I was late trying to get my horse to colaborate with me. I found the whole gang in Nosalida, and we went co-op, saving ladies from bad guys and rowing a raft through Rio Bravo. Then, we got tired of helping each other and went to a couple of FFA matches, including Grab the Bag (this is the best multiplayer mode) and Shootout.

So, here are the awards for all the players that answered our call to arms:

Final Fantasy XIV Dated

[tab:FFXIV Release date/subscription fees]

Square Enix has announced the released date for their upcoming mmorpg Final Fantasy XIV.

First the bad news for PS3 fans: FFXIV won’t be hitting the PS3 before March 2011. :(  This is a bit dissappointing after Square Enix had stated in the past how their plans were for a simultaneous release of both the PS3 and PC versions. But it looks like that wasn’t meant to be.

On to the good news: The PC version FFXIV will be releasing this September 30th, worldwide, with a Collector’s Edition planned that’ll hit European retailers on September 22nd. No news if the CE is just EU only.

Gamers can expect to pay a monthly subscription fee of $12.99/£8.99/€12.99, and an extra  $3.00/£2.10/€3.00 per month  for any additional characters. This is similar to how things worked in FFXI but in that game the extra characters were only priced at $1. Also unlike FFXI there will be a maximum of eight characters allowed on one account.

Details on pricing for the PS3 version will be revealed later.

    echochrome ii Developer Video

    First off, I think this is a great use of the Move for a PSN game like this. For those who played the original echochrome, you know that it’s a very cool puzzle game, even without the fancy graphics and colors. This takes the classic perspective gaming to another dimension with the ‘flashlight’ mechanic, adds more lively music and a few bold colors. And the ability to make your own puzzles is awesome as well. It should come out later this year.
