What would the game be like? Nausicaas adventures--like chasing giant bugs on her jet hang glider--are fantastical enough for a game, but theyre also grounded in very human emotions and desires. Its the type of tale that makes a great RPG, since that genre can tell enormous narratives while simultaneously showcasing wonderfully realized worlds. And the film only told a fraction of the story Miyazaki detailed in the Nausicaa manga series; the full saga is easily rich enough for a satisfying 60 hour JRPG. Wed also give the project to Mistwalker, the company run by Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi. Why? Because the tone and style of FF has so much in common with Nausicaa, its only fitting that Sakaguchis current team work on the game. … [Read more...] about What 10 Ghibli films would be like as games

So far, EA has been relatively quiet on the Battlefield front. The only confirmed information we have about the next entry in the shooter franchise is that it will be coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X with a 2021 launch window. Henderson believes it's still 9-10 months away from release and claims to have been told it will also be coming to PS4 and Xbox One.

"I suppose I'm interested in magic in the way that it turns the known unknown, makes the world strange and somehow new, its working as evidence of things unseen, which makes you look more closely. Magic changes the rules the world operates by, what we think is possible, what we think is reasonable or true. That's something I'm always interested in: exploring and opening up the possibilities of worlds and futures and ways of being that are different. I love disrupting the idea that the way things are is something fixed. I think it's important to be able to imagine our way out of it, multiple ways out of it, and magic is one route into that kind of imagination." … [Read more...] about What does magic mean to you?
Harvest Moon: Back to Nature and For GirlFew games have the audacity to so bluntly target a specific gender in their title. The only other one I can think of is The Guy Game, and the less that's said about that atrocity, the better. The gender of your crop-tending, animal-raising farmer in the PS1 Harvest Moon games is determined by your version; you're a boy in Back to Nature and a girl in For Girl. And while the farming gameplay is virtually identical between the two versions, some changes to For Girl's progression structure expose some seriously antiquated ideas about womanhood. For starters, boys inherit the farm as their own; girls play an amnesiac who's permitted to live on the farm and take care of it after washing ashore from a shipwreck. Courtship is a big part of Harvest Moon life, and girls will need to work on their exclusive Beauty Stars stat if they hope to win over a bachelor's heart. Most regrettable is the fact that, while boys are encouraged to get hitched and have … [Read more...] about One game, two versions, and not a Pokemon in sight
