Nobuo Uematsu is calm and relaxed sitting in front of the people of the press. With his trusty translator Geoff Tebbetts by his side the man responsible for every great Final Fantasy soundtrack -- as well as the music from the Crono Trigger series -- seemed ready as can be to take questions from people who weren’t just journalists, but also large admirers of his work. His face was still beaming from the day before, where he performed with the Video Game Orchestra as a surprise guest in front of thousands of his fans. Who knew over twenty-five years ago that this man’s then-8-bit music would inspire millions of people, as well as performed by a hundred-piece orchestra. However as a child Uematsu didn’t see composing in the cards.
This is so awesome, It needs to be spread around as many circles as possible.

It’s nothing new that Naughty Dog is continually trying to thwart all efforts to trade in Uncharted 2, but do you ever get the feeling they’re trying too hard? Yeah me neither. 2 maps, 6 skins, 11 trophies, and the brand new siege mode, all for $5.99. Did I mention the double cash weekend going on right now?
Monster Hunter Tri is officially out and I couldn’t be more addicted. There’s just so much to do with hunting monsters, decorating your hut, customizing armor and weapons, going online with friends, arena battles and cooking meat to a catchy tune. In addition, there are so many fun toys to play with in association with this game. With the debut of the Classic Controller Pro and inclusion of Wii Speak, there is quite a bit to this package.
Recently I got to spend some hands-on time with the new Jawbone Icon by Aliph, a bluetooth headset for use with mobile phones and computers, and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with the device.
