The Batman’s Robert Pattinson Chimes In On Final Fantasy VII’s Love Triangle

Entertainment
If you’re a Final Fantasy VII fan, then you’ve probably contributed to the discourse about who is the classic JRPG’s best heroine and Cloud’s canon love interest. Tifa and Aerith (or Aeris) are some of gaming history’s most recognizable fighters as both contribute to VII’s moment-to-moment action in significant ways. Remake upped the bar, moving away from traditional turn-based combat so that players could truly witness the freneticism/power of Tifa’s martial arts and the seemingly infinite magical capabilities of Aerith. Now, The Batman’s Robert Pattinson has chimed in on Final Fantasy VII’s love triangle, stating that he’s always been smitten with both characters.  Robert Pattinson talking about Final Fantasy 7 and how he was in love with Aeris and Tifa for Clique X. #TheBatman...

Virtual Boy F-Zero Spinoff That Never Released ‘Was Done,’ According To Former Nintendo Producer

Virtual Boy F-Zero Spinoff That Never Released ‘Was Done,’ According To Former Nintendo Producer

Entertainment
A Virtual Boy F-Zero spinoff game called Zero Racers “was done,” according to a former Nintendo Producer.  However, as anyone who’s ever looked into the history of this spinoff knows, Zero Racers (sometimes known as G-Racers), was never released. This likely had less to do with the game and more to do with the Virtual Boy’s commercial failure. Yes, the Virtual Boy has garnered a fanbase over the past few decades, but at the end of the day, it wasn’t a success. That lack of success likely led to games like Zero Racers never becoming a reality…or so we thought because it turns out Zero Racers was complete and ready for play.  “Zero Racers was done,” former Nintendo of America localizer and associate producer Jim Wornell told Did You Know Gaming, as reported by Nintendo Life. “We had...
