Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward gallery, excellent new Nobuo Uematsu song

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo

I’ve never been shy about my love of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. I might not play it anymore, since MMORPGs are super effective against my free time, but each and every passing screenshot and trailer is an alluring excuse to jump back in.

The latest from Square Enix is a massive info dump for the upcoming expansion, Heavensward. Of the two released trailers, one details the northern lands our protagonists have been banished to, and the other explores the job class upgrades that the expansion allows.

The accompanying mountain of screenshots also look absolutely glorious. This game is second to none in capturing the old spirit of JRPGs these days, and the cold, icy mountains resemble the most inhabitable northern reaches of early Final Fantasy games. It’s as rigid and unforgiving as my childhood brain imagined it.

The main kicker of this batch, though, is a piece of the puzzle that no Final Fantasy fan can refuse, an original track composed by the famed Nobuo Uematsu. It’s probably my favorite lyricized theme song of its type since Snake Eater. Give it a listen below. Good stuff.

Final Fantasy XIV just keeps getting more and more impressive as time goes by. Some will never give it a second glance because it is online and not a “traditional” Final Fantasy game, whatever that means anymore, but when Square Enix wraps it all up and finally finishes working on it, I wonder where it will stand on the series’ grand quality scale. Something tells me history will favorably remember this one as one of the best.

Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward will be released for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC on June 23.

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry, e incluso un fanboy BlackBerry, sólo porque resulta que tengo probado, y lo disfrutamos, el Z30-libre del teclado. Sin embargo, a pesar de mi predilección por ambos teclados y el RIM avances (er, BlackBerry) ha realizado recientemente, el Nexus One de Google 5 sigue siendo mi smartphone defecto de elección.
Pero eso cambió hace dos semanas - al menos temporalmente - cuando Jon Rettinger me retó a tratar de vivir con el dispositivo insignia de BlackBerry, el Pasaporte. Y ya que estoy por lo general para cualquier reto tecnológico que decidí darle un paso - y así que me puse el Nexus a un lado y se zambulló en la parte más profunda.

¿Alguna vez has visto un ornitorrinco? Es probablemente el animal más extraño que jamás encuentres. Es un mamífero de sangre caliente, sin embargo, pone huevos. Está cubierto con la piel, pero se divierte un pico de pato. Y sus pies palmeados también parecen má…

Gears of War remaster screenshots from footage leak

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo The only thing Black Tusk and Microsoft have left to do on the Gears of War remaster is actually announce it. We’ve seen it hinted at, denied, and rated.Now we have some footage accidentally leaked onto the Xbox DVR site, likely by a developer who forgot to disable the automatic upload.This isn’t gameplay footage per se – the enemy is standing still in the clips while the player attacks them. It’s likely test footage for some of the gore physics or something like that. But it’s definitely footage taken in-game.The two images above were pulled from a NeoGAF thread on the leak comparing the screenshot of the new clips to one from the original Gears. Microsoft is likely scrambling to take the footage down, but currently the thread, linked to in the source for this story, has links to the videos.If you decide to click through and watch the clips, it’s important to note that they were filmed using the Xbox Game DVR and were filmed three months ago, before t…

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launch trailer take 2 – Go Your Own Way

You can call it another lonely day. Haven’t we been here once before? CD Projekt RED believes that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is far too amazing for just one launch trailer, so it has decided to create yet another just to drive home the fact that you need to play this game.The new “Go Your Way” launch trailer features more in-engine graphics instead of impressive pre-rendered CG, and its focus this time around is not our big, bad hero Geralt but rather the Princess Ciri. Don’t be fooled by her puppy dog eyes and adorable freckles. This girl will kill you in a flash! The trailer tells her tale of how she wandered from home, and tells of how Geralt sets out to find her.The relationship between these two is not the only star of the trailer either. Geralt’s fantasy world is full of real life horrors that extend beyond mere monsters. Slaughter, torture, executions, dangerous seductions. The trailer bares all that you will find in this horrible yet beautiful place, giving you a taste of the s…
