This episode I follow up on last week’s cliffhanger and reveal which of my many backlogged free games clogging up my PS3 and Xbox 360 hard drives I decided to play. It was bad enough when they were selling more games than you could play, but now that they’re just giving them away? Geeze!

I’m very open minded. I’ll try anything once! Make the jump to watch this week’s vidcast and see what I sampled!

Dark Horse Comics has produced some fine licensed material based on comic books, like Mass Effect and The Last of Us. And since the Tomb Raider game from Crystal Dynamics was such a hit, it’s only natural that they’re going to be producing a new series based in that world! Now you don’t have to wait for the sequel to enjoy the further adventures of everyone’s favorite videogame heroine.

Writer Gail Simone is no stranger to writing strong female characters, having scripted comics like Wonder Woman and Batgirl, and was a natural fit to chronicle the further adventures of Lara Croft. In an editorial running in recent issues of Dark Horse Comics, the scribe admits to being a big fan of Lara’s, but skeptical of the reboot game (and Dark Horse’s request she write the new series based on it). Of course, her skepticism lasted only as long as it took to start playing the game!

If you’re a big Final Fantasy fan who lives near Los Angeles, you might want to check out The Art of Final Fantasy X/X-2 at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, CA. From Saturday March 15, through Wednesday, March 26, you’ll be able to take an up-close look at artwork from Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2. Some artwork will be for sale, and proceeds will be donated to charity relief efforts to aid the victims of Typhoon Haiyan.

This event is promoting the March 18 release of Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster, and at the exhibit’s opening reception on March 15, producer Yoshinori Kitase and art director Yusuke Naora will be on hand to sign the first 200 copies of the game purchased. Limited quantities of the PlayStation 3 Limited Edition and Collectors Edition as well as the PS Vita version will be available for sale starting on the 15th, a few days earlier than the official launch date.

In addition to door prizes, there will be playable units of both the original FFX and FFX-2 releases as well as the HD remasters. There will also be a FF-X/X-2 themed photo booth if you want to commemorate the visit. A little jealous this is on the left coast, because I love a good gallery show!

Oh my God, you guys! I have the best news! I finally achieved something I don’t think I’ve ever done in a videogame! Now, if only the Xbox 360 would play nicely with Facebook so I could post the Achievement to Facebook… stupid Microsoft.

Anyway, watch me explode with glee after the jump!
