Nintendo and Square Enix bravely avoid conflict, translators take it upon themselves to re-write game scripts, DoAX3 gets cancelled in the West, and fancy ladies like common boys in the news of the week!
As Java converts the LusipurrCorp basement to a slightly less dingy testing facility, he lends some final thoughts on trilogies and Bravely Default. He will be hanging up the pen for a bit next week, so he feels he must get his rambles in before then.
Java’s busted up hand is just about done healing, so he revisits the concept of games as part of the healing process before he returns to his labor job in the LusipurrCorp Orichalcum Mines. Apparently, Lusipurr is still waiting for those stylish rims.
Java is impatient. He is supposed to be recovering from a nasty hand injury, one which momentarily prevented him from playing Bravely Default, but instead tortures himself even more by looking ahead to Bravely Second: End Layer. Welcome to Spoilertown!
Despite being sent to work the LusipurrCorp orichalcum mine (Lusipurr wants rims for his car), Java still manages to find time to play Bravely Default, and still wants to talk about it. One would think he would be over it by now. This week? Predictions!
After a few weeks of Majora’s Mask, Ethos is back to his old self with his return to Editorial Miscellany. That is correct, he wanders aimlessly across topics in true mediocre form. Meeting middling expectations: that is the Ethos guarantee.
Java has been tremendously quiet, lately. We assumed by his looks of contentment that he had retrofitted the basement to be an opium den. Nope. He is just really enjoying Bravely Default, which leaves him reminiscing about past joys in gaming this week.
Ethos played a very good side-scrolling game and a very disappointing side-scrolling game in an attempt to collect stories for this week’s Editorial Miscellany. Spoilers, but Shovel Knight is the good game. And Valiant Hearts is the disappointing one.
Square Enix announces a positive change in direction, PS4 is rumoured to replace Xbox the the lead platform of Call of Duty, and Lorne Lanning has been taken out of context in the news of the week!
Ethos continues to play and enjoy Bravely Default, but he – perhaps as expected – gets distracted by other RPGs and he decides to rave about those as well. Hint: There is a lot of Mario and just a little Luigi.
