Honestly, We're Pretty Stoked For The 3rd Birthday

We are not massive Parasite Eve fans

We are not massive PSP shooter fans. But something about Square Enix's The 3rd Birthday has always held our attention.

Sit and digest the new Dissidia game's title for a second - DISSIDIA 012 [duodecim]:  Final Fantasy

We don't think we're exaggerating when we say this is truly the worst name for a video game ever conceived. But then, we expect nothing less from the publisher who puts the 13th iteration of their franchise under the "Fabula Nova Crystallis" banner. Cut it out Square. It's dumb. Not so..

Ok, so it's hard to really tell the intricacies of the graphics engine, but going by this off-camera footage we're going to assume it's amazing. There looks to be a pretty impressive draw-distance. The combat, however, looks less exciting. It's hard to..
