09/20/2010 Shippin' Out Sept. 19-25: Civilization V

S Sid Meier 'latest PC strategy titles Sim relatively light week as Final Fantasy XIV Online early access to open and peeling of the F1 2010.

It's unlikely that any new release will be able to match last week's top earner, Halo: Reach, which earned Microsoft an eyebrow-raising $200 million within 24 hoursrelease. Of course that 'S is hardly going to stop any of this week' S contenders from trying.

Those who do not buy civilization V will get a very stern look from this man.

For many gamers, the headliner this week is Sid Meier 'S Civilization V, from Take-Two' S recent Trimmed strategy studio Firaxis. Built on an all-new engine, Civ V updates the series with a hexagonal playfield grid. Firaxis has also overhauled the game's combat system and introduced ranged bombardment options, animated world leaders who speak in their own languages, and a built-in community hub, allowing players to swap scenarios and other content without leaving the game.

Final Fantasy XIV Online will be set in the realm of Eorzea, a world not seen before in any other installments in the franchise. Like in other massively multiplayer online role-playing games, players will be able to explore the realm after selecting from a variety of races, combat classes, and professional skills. More information on Eorzea's lore and backstory can be found on the game's Web site.

The week will also see Codemasters' first effort in the F1 racing circuit on high-definition consoles take to the track. Slated to arrive for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, F1 2010 features all the drivers, teams, cars, and tracks from the 2010 Formula One season. Gamers can also expect to see damage modeling, dynamic weather systems, and online multiplayer options, in addition to a host of single-player career, time trial, championship, and grand prix modes.

The rest of the week brings a hodgepodge of other new releases. Atlus will be rolled out its latest hardcore RPG Etrian Odyssey III: Drowned City for the DS, while Konami gives Gormiti: Lords of nature on both Nintendo 'S platforms. S Calypso 'recent Government and Urban Development Patricia Sim IV also arrived for the PC.

For more information on the week 'S games, visit GameSpot' S New Releases page. The full list of downloadable games on the PlayStation Store, Xbox Live Marketplace, and Wii Shop Channel will be revealed later this week. Release dates are based on retailer listings and are subject to change.

09/24/2010 \\ "Shift extended" is coming to PlayStation Minis
Another iPhone port is coming to the Mini for PSP and PS3. Shift Advanced is -- you probably guessed it -- an extended version of Shift, Platformer released as a free flash game and later made available on the App Store. Fishing Cactus is handling the port, which will "offer no less than double the content of the iPhone version." Also new to the PSN version is D-pad support, a rather crucial feature for a platforming game.

Shift is expected to arrive on the PlayStation Store by year's end.

09/16/2010 Ninokuni: Shikkoku no Madoushi Hands-On

We learn how Oliver gets in the world Ninokuni.

Last year we were able to play demo of Ninokuni: Shikkoku no Madoushi and mess around with the properties of the magic book that plays an important role in the game. At the time we didn't have much of an idea of what the game was about and what we were doing in this magnificent forest. This year at the 2010 Tokyo Game Show, we were able see the game from the beginning and find out how the young boy Oliver winds up in Ninokuni. While the PlayStation 3 demo was more action oriented, we did get to see some of the differences between the two versions. We're pleased to see that the collaboration between Level 5 and Studio Ghibli is coming along nicely.

We were limited to 15 minutes and most of that time was spent watching nicely animated cutscenes. This was likely the beginning of the game, where we see Oliver run to a nearby convenience store to pick up some items for his mother. Through the animation and expressions of the characters, it was fairly easy to understand what was going on. We were able to control Oliver using the stylus or the D pad. With the stylus, you draw a line on the touch screen and hold it in the direction you want him to go. An arrow on the map in the top screen will let you know where you should be heading.

After heading home, we sat down to eat a sandwich that our mothers have been prepared. If you 're worried about story spoilers, then you can stop reading now and read the PS3 hands-on

His mom must have some kind of sixth sense, as she wakes up from a dream of her son falling into oblivion and runs to his room to check on him. When she sees that he's missing, she takes off and eventually finds him struggling in the water. She jumps in and saves him, but unfortunately after he's safe and sound, she suddenly keels over and dies from a heart attack.

To date, our 15 minutes were up, so we opened up from the demo area, but through all the demos we've seen, we are able to piece together the story and gameplay. This can be awihle before we can see it all in English, but Ninokuni: Shikkoku Madoushi not going to be released in Japan on December 9.

07/14/2010 The Last Story may be Sakaguchi's final game

The Last Story may be Sakaguchi's final game screenshot

Final Fantasy creator, Mistwalker head and RPG legend Hironobu Sakaguchi has stated that he may very well be retiring from the scene after Last story . Pay close attention to this exclusive Wii, because it can be an icon 'swan song.

"This is a title that myself and the development staff are putting 120% of our energy into," says Sakaguchi. "I'm fully pouring everything into this one title, and the feeling of it maybe being my last title is strong."

Speaking as a fan of Mistwalker, this is pretty big news, and it makes The Last Story even more interesting. This RPG is definitely in my top five most wanted Wii games right now, and I really hope that, if this is going to be Sakaguchi's last, that he goes out with a bang. 

Of course, Sakaguchi had also planned to retire after the first Final FantasyAnd we all saw how he stood his ground there.

07/16/2010 Jagex: We Had to Self-Publish

Speaking at the Develop conference this week, Jagex CEO Mark Gerhard said that it became a self-publisher out of necessity after several big time publishers basically told them "f**k you."

The company responsible for the ultra popular browser-based MMORPG RuneScape said that it approached Electronic Arts and Activision, but were soundly rejected. Even after its game became a massive hit, publishers spurned them.

\\ "We went to the publishers as Activision and EA, and said that 've a great browser game, and they said fuck' in '," was shown on Gerhard Development conference in Brighton. "We came back and said, 've got millions of users and they said garbage' '. Necessity forced us to become a publisher. "

Gerhard said that, despite those hurdles, the company managed to do well; in 2005 Sony was willing to invest in the company. That's a a long way from being ignored by EA and Activision. Besides publishing RuneScape and casual games through the FunOrb portal, Jagex is also releasing titles such as War of Legends, which is "125 percent over target on revenues," according to Gerhard.
