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?!?!”

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

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…”

Team Hogan vs. Team Andre the Giant (WWF Survivor Series ’87)

The 25th annual WWE Survivor Series event took place last night at Madison Square Garden in New York City.  While keeping tabs on the match results on numerous wrestling websites, I started thinking about all of the classic matches from Survivor Series’ past.  All of that thought ended with my knowledge of the very first Survivor Series on Thanksgiving Night of 1987. In 1987, fresh … Continue reading Team Hogan vs. Team Andre the Giant (WWF Survivor Series ’87)
