    • Final Fantasy fans rejoice! FFX-2 is going to be bundled with the HD PS3 version of FFX! AND if you know where I can see actual footage of X-2 HD, please let me know!
    • Germany’s Nintendo eShop will now allow Mature rated games to be sold at any time to adults.
    • You can play Sweatshop online…
    • To see for yourself why Apple felt they needed to remove the game from the App store.

    Here’s the new episode of Nerdy News!

    What do you think?

    Do you hope/think FFX-2 has received the same updated graphics as FFX? Do the stricter media rules Germany has assure you that the Nintendo Parental Controls are top notch because they were accepted? Parents, are you more likely to buy Nintendo consoles now that they have passed strict scrutiny? Gamers without kids, do you feel responsible to help create a healthy environment that protects kids from overly mature content? Do you think Apple is unintentionally generating more negative attention on their factory conditions by removing “Sweatshop” from the App Store?

      Hahaha! Loving the sarcasm in the Apple Store genre comparison! So true!

      WOOO FFX HD! Right away you have people crying about 7. I’ve found mostly these are people who first played 7 and think 7 is the beginning of FF. I spent countless hours playing FF, no numbers following it. That was the beginning. 7 was ok, not great. I never played X-2. I had heard about Germany’s weird “no sales between x-x” before. Ridiculous. I thought for sure I had heard about Apple pulling a “sweat shop” game a year or two ago. Part of the rules for apps is they can’t recreate the functionality of built in apps, I think the sweat shop was too similar to their own manufacturing process.
