Dear Diary,

You know, I thought this was a pretty boring week in Geneva. But then I looked back at it, and while it might have been quiet, there was still some silliness and fun to be had! Plus, any week that ends with a surprise can’t be all bad, right? Well, I guess that depends on whether the surprise is good or bad…

Read on to find out which it was!

Originally announced in 2006 alongside Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy XV has become one of gaming’s most notorious titles. It’s development has been fraught with numerous delays, rumors of becoming vaporware, and even the possibility of turning into a musical. Yes, a musical. While the game’s E3 2013 showing renewed faith that it still exists, it had absolutely zero presence at E3 2014 whatsoever. Given the game’s history this was….concerning, to say the least.

This week’s Tokyo Game Show brought a number of announcements about the title, and while none of them are a release date (or even a window) they are pretty noteworthy nonetheless.

Board Game Review: BattleCON

The young fighter grinned, a plan in her mind. Her accursed gauntlet twitched with energy as she channeled power into it. Then, she thrust her palm forward, sending a ripple of black energy hurtling outwards. But she had acted too late. Her opponent leapt over the blast, landing neatly behind her. “Nice try,” the opponent smirked. “But still too slow.”

Alright, so, if you have an overactive imagination like me, these kinds of scenes play out in your head every day. For everyone else, however, you might need some encouragement. The closest thing to the scenario above would probably be a fighting game of some sort. Something ridiculous, like BlazBlue or Persona Arena.

Fighting games are great and all, but I’m not exactly the best at them. For some of the more technical games, I’m downright awful, in fact. I get the main themes, of course. Fighting games require a strategy and a foresight to understand what your opponent will do next. That, however, is incredibly difficult to develop on the fly as you’re desperately button-mashing for a chance at victory. What if I told you that there was a game that gave you the strategy of a fighting game without the button-mashing and split-second timing?

Enter BattleCON.

Well, if you watched last week’s episode, you know what this one is all about.

My utter lack of willpower naturally meant that I bought Destiny even though it’s not normally a game that I would ever play. I’m not good enough at shooters to play online with people. So what do I think of Bungie’s massively-hyped release? Make the jump and watch this week’s vidcast to find out!

This week, my live-tweeting was less than live on account of a rehearsal I had to attend. This was entirely disheartening, because The Quest reached its GRAND FINALE! And as evidenced from my retro-live-tweeting, this finale was pretty damn good stuff. Let it be known, my sass and shade comes from a place of love. This show had me skeptical to start, but I am guzzling the Koolaid now as much as anybody else. Who will be the One True Hero!? Let’s find out…

WARNING: FINALE SPOILER ALERT!!!!

Dear Diary,

It was a fun week in Geneva this time around, even if a couple people tried to move away. We had a festival, some silliness, and good times. Oh, and after a visit to Gabi’s home where I had to reluctantly inform her that the place was kind of dump, she sent me a lovely letter thanking me for my brutal honesty and rewarding me with her picture. Now, I’ve already got it, but it’s the thought that counts!

Keep reading for the rest of the shenanigans!
