Square Enix E3 LineupWith just under a month to go until E3, expect the gaming news to start flowing fast and hard. Last year Square Enix put on a great show, had an incredible booth, and really just did an all out great job. It looks like they are aiming to pull out all the stops yet again. This year they will be showing Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children (again), Front Mission Online, Romancing SaGa, Radiata Stories, Kingdom Hearts II, and Fullmetal Alchemist 2: Curse of the Crimson Elixir, Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King, and Final Fantasy XII. We’re excited to see how this turns out and so is Ichiro Otobe, President of Square Enix:

“This year’s line-up will showcase huge titles from all of our major franchises, making this a particularly unique E3 for us. In addition to titles from our familiar franchises such as Dragon Quest VIII and Kingdom Hearts II, we will have playable demos of many other exciting, new games that will soon be as recognizable on consoles, mobile phones, online and DVD. Compilation of Final Fantasy VII will be a great example of the actual delivery of polymorphic content, our new content deployment model based on the creation of original concepts with interactivity on multiple platforms in mind from the start.”

Smartguard WallflySmartGUARD’s WallFly software aims to do for PC gaming what the V-chip has done for TV, which seems to be not much at all. Basically, the software is installed on a PC, and a parent can create profiles for each member of the family that might want to play a PC game. The parent can then configure which options are and are not allowed (blood and gore, for example), what hours children are allowed to play the games, and - most importantly - what ratings they may or may not play. My thing is, I know so many people that can get around so many different kinds of software that is supposed to restrict them from doing something. I haven’t tried WallFly out yet, but it is hard for me to believe that it will be any different.

DescriptionSony’s recent announcement of their new MMORPG Auction site seems to have upset another MMORPG maker, Mythic Entertainment.  Mythic Entertainment is the creator of Dark Age of Camelot MMORPG.  Mythic’s CEO Mark Jacobs had this to say about the decision, “I’m disappointed with the decision from a leader in the MMO industry to go down a path which in the past, has been an anathema to them and remains so to just about every other MMORPG company in the industry. I think that not only supporting the sale of in-game characters, items and currency, but also taking a ‘cut’ of those sales, is not only a mistake but one of the worst decisions in the history of the MMORPG industry.”  Jacobs also goes into discussion about how if you were to buy an item on StationExchange and Sony had to delete that item from the game, users would be pretty upset.
