While many of us are still trying to process the recent news that Kingdom Hearts III has finally gone gold (I’m mean, a lot of us thought this day would NEVER come), another interesting piece of news has popped up regarding Square-Enix and Disney’s upcoming RPG. Recently, Chinese game site A9VG covered Kingdom Hearts III, there was a pretty noticeable omission in the story: Winnie the Pooh.

On September 28, Square Enix announced that Skrillex and Hikaru Utada will be collaborating to write and produce a new song for the upcoming — and highly-anticipated and long-awaited — JRPG, Kingdom Hearts 3. The track, titled ‘Face my Fears’, will open the game when it comes out early next year. Some minor background: Grammy Award winning Skrillex has been a long-time fan of the game franchise and has produced remixes of Hikaru Utada’s previous songs, including ‘Don’t Think Twice.’  Continue reading “The Opening Theme to ‘Kingdom Hearts 3’ to be Penned by Hiraku Utada and…Skrillex?!?!”

Due To Expired Music Rights, Rockstar Pulls David Bowie And More From ‘Grand Theft Auto IV’

 

Rockstar Games is removing a number of songs in Grand Theft Auto IV due to music licensing issues, as a pretty-large patch for the game started to go live this past weekend, resulting in eliminating A LOT of songs across all the radio stations. For example, the Vladivostok FM station was predicted to be particularly hard hit, and that turns out to be very true.  In the place of some of the missing tracks, Rockstar will add a few more newer, lesser-known Russian songs, mostly by Seryoga.

The Shenmue 1 & 2 Collection Is Coming Out Year?!? **faints**

**wakes back up**

Huh? Whaaa? What happened? What did I miss? Ok, this is one of those things that’s both FOR me and NOT for me. You see, I was a fan of the Sega Dreamcast (despite not owning one; I played on a friend’s console) and of Shenmue when it was released (again, I played it on a friend’s Dreamcast). I even got my hands on the Xbox port of Shenmue II despite not having an Xbox at the time; yeah, I had it pretty bad. based just on that alone, imagine how much I fanboyed when the Shenmue III crowdfunding campaign was announced a couple of years ago. Anyway, SEGA recently announced at FES 2018 that HD ports of Shenmue and Shenmue II are being brought over to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in North America and Europe, while being exclusive on PlayStation 4 only in Japan.

‘Diablo III: Reaper of Souls’ Game Boy Version Isn’t Always Online or Real…

Diablo III: Reaper of Souls' Game Boy Version Isn't Always Online

With the recent release of the next installment/first expansion of the ‘Diablo III’ saga, ‘Reaper of Souls,’ I’m almost positive that the first thought of many a gamer was WHEN WILL IT BE RELEASED ON THE GAME BOY. You know, that same Game Boy that debuted in 1989 and was retired by Nintendo in 2003.  But still, WHAT THE HECK, NINTENDO?!?! Anyway, even though the Game Boy port doesn’t exist, South Korea blogger Laptick decided to create the thing on his own. Well, he did at least create the packaging, as well as the physical Game Boy cartridge. Continue reading “‘Diablo III: Reaper of Souls’ Game Boy Version Isn’t Always Online or Real…”

Holy Lynx for Lefties! Resistance: Burning Skies Patch adds Left Handed Controls!

Raise you hands if you remember Atari’s 16-bit handheld video game system, the Lynx. Anyone? Hello? Anyone? Oh, ok, good; seven people! Just kidding, but while the Atari Lynx was unable to compete successfully with Nintendo’s Game Boy or even Sega’s Game Gear, it’s most notable feature (undoubtedly) is its ambidextrous layout, allowing switchable right-handed/left-handed control configuration, which has pretty awesome. I haven’t heard much of a big deal about game controls/controllers for my left-handed gamers (though I’m sure many, many exist in any options menu of any first-person shooter) on the other end of the spectrum, but a new patch for the PS Vita game Resistance: Burning Skies will allow an option to utilized left-handed controls.   Continue reading “Holy Lynx for Lefties!
