Crystal Defenders
Siliconera reports that Square-Enix is bringing it’s Final Fantasy Tactics inspired Tower Defense Title, Crystal Defenders to the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.

Not much else is known about it, other than it’s coming, but here’s hoping that it will receive some HD graphical goodness, and other extra features. I’m imagining the title will be PSN, and XBLA releases.

Crystal Defenders was originally released for the iPhone, and is showing up on Wiiware for 1,000 points in the near future also.

I love Tower Defense style games, so I’m interested to see how this title plays out. I’ve heard nothing but good things about the iPhone version, so keep your ears peeled for more info, FF fans!

My tooth issues, my lack of employment, and my broken PS3 nearly crippled my resolve.

However, a few things have happened that have turned the situation into a big positive.

One: My mom, the saint that she is, is paying to fix my PS3 for me, as a Christmas present. Santa has been spared a severe beating thanks to my mom.

Chrono Trigger DS gets a European Release Date

Posted in DS, News with tags , , , , on December 11, 2008 by Stefano Terry

Square-Enix finally lifted the veil on the European release date of Chrono Trigger: February 6.

Chrono Trigger DS is a faithful reproduction of the Super Nintendo classic, but features additional dungeons, the cutscenes from the Playstation remake, an alternate ending, not to mention the use of the DS’ two screens.

Chrono Trigger was the game that got me interested in RPGs way back in the day, and although I’d rather have a new entry to the Chrono series, I can never get enough of the original.
