As stated this is the first Nintendo Direct since the passing of Satoru Iwata President and CEO of Nintendo. This Nintendo Direct marks off the end of this year and the first half of next year with a strong and health lineup of new games, sequels, remakes, amiibos and surprises. Love them or hate them, there’s something here for everyone.
The Final Fantasy series has been making enemies of their fans. Whether it be its main games failing to deliver on what fans want or the numerous spin offs that are ignored, fans are becoming tired of waiting for something good from the franchise. While I don’t totally agree with the vocal fans Theatrhythm Final Fantasy has caught my attention. It combines my love of Final Fantasy music and rhythm games. Is this mishmash a good thing on another product waiting to be ignored?
For those attempting to go online on the PS3 today will find that there is a mandatory version update for the system. Version 4.25 gives Playstation Plus users 1 GB of of cloud storage for their save files. Prior to the update you only had 150 MB of storage. Out of curiosity I did a mass back up of all of my save data discovering that there was about 484 MB on my PS3, three times larger than the previous storage space allotted. So yes additional space is a welcome. Again this is only available to PS Plus users who also gain the benefits of free games/themes/avatars, discounts and the occasional early access to content like betas.
