Lost Odyssey, Is it Worth Finding?

Posted by:Kal

Phew, it’s been a while since I last posted anything of importance because, of course, we are smack-dab in the middle of the spring semester at college. And I have about had it up to here with the amount of crap I should be doing all time. While on the drive home yesterday I was like “Hey I should post a blog entry” and there has been a lot of talk about this new game called Lost Odyssey, so I began some digging up some information (while I was procrastinating on reading my textbooks) about this new and interesting game.

Sadly little has been released about the game’s story other than who the characters are and that some never die. The game is called Lost Odyssey and is based on a man named Kaim, who has lived for 1000 years. He has seen everything and done a lot in his time. Whether love or destruction, this man faced it head on. This story revolves around the basic concept of Kaim living in a world submerged in a world of transformation; a transformation which they call mystical industrial revolution.

Just by learning so much about this game makes me want to go out and buy it. However, if you are a true gamer, you should want to go buy this game for another reason. The team that created this game was by far the best in the business. The game is headed by Hironobu Sakaguchi, who had his fingers in games like the Final Fantasy series, the Kingdom Hearts series, Blue Dragon, and the Parasite Eve series. The game has great art and music directors such as Takehiko Inoue and Nobuo Uematsu, respectively. With huge names such as these this game has to be good.

Hopefully you will check this game out because I know I am going to as well. I am sure that this game will last you a nice 40-60 hour gaming spree and will give you your fix of RPG goodness.

Transformers 2

Posted by:Kal
It has just come to my attention recently, that Transformers the movie will have a sequel that is due the middle of the 2009. Not much information has been released about the sequel, especially because of the dim-witted writer’s strike that is happening right now. Filming will commence no matter what around June of 2008, which means, if the screenplay sucks…we might be in for a really bad sequel. Hopefully, the writers will just give in so we can go back to good movies in cinemas. Here is what Wikipedia has said about this matter:

“Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg are expected to return as director and executive producer for Transformers 2, and Paramount has announced a June 26,2009 release. Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox and Peter Cullen are signed on to return[…] Ehren Kruger was hired to write the script, alongside the returning Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman[....] Meanwhile, IDW Publishing will release its own sequel to the film, Transformers Movie Sequel: The Reign of Starscream, the first issue of which is due in April 2008.”

Hopefully that gives you Transformers fans something to look forward to, because I know I will be ecstatic.
