Tabletopping: Fiasco

Fiasco is not your usual tabletop RPG. In fact, it’s difficult to describe it as an RPG at all. It’s more like a board game, RPG, and acting exercise all met and threw a really screwed up party. Or had a really screwed up kid.

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!

Oculus Rift and Gender Swapping Possibilities

For the past two years there has been one invention grabbing the attention of game developers everywhere: The Oculus Rift. The Kickstarter-funded virtual reality headset is being touted by many as the next big thing in interactive entertainment. Everyone from Cliffy B to Masahiro Sakurai have endorsed the product, which should be making its way into the consumer market sometime in the next two years.

So far, though, most of the uses I’ve seen of the Oculus Rift have been…less than thrilling. First person shooters are the obvious go-to, and Doom 3 was the first AAA title with Oculus Rift support announced. It’s a no-brainer, after all FPS games are already built on the idea that you are looking through your avatar’s eyes. But all this time, as someone who’s not much into shooters, I’ve been left wondering “what else can it do?”

Recently a group known as BeAnotherLab have begun to answer that question by exploring the possibility of experiencing what it’s like to be other genders via Oculus Rift. (Note: video contains nudity)
