Dillon's Rolling Western Preview

A short trailer showcases a new downloadable 3DS title with gameplay elements from multiple genres.

The Rolling Western is an upcoming 3DS Shop title to be published by Nintendo, for which there is extremely limited information. It was not showcased at the Nintendo Press Conference, and there has been no official fact sheet or press release issued for the game. The only preview comes in the form of a few screenshots and a brief trailer.

From what I can tell, The Rolling Western is the combination of an action and tower defense title. The game stars a protagonist (Jiro) who looks like Sandslash dressed as a cowboy and sounds like Link from the Zelda series. This character has one main attack, which is to roll into enemies, damaging them in the process.

In addition to dealing physical damage by rolling into enemies, players seem to be able to utilize towers that will damage the enemies also. Whether or not players will be setting up the towers themselves or they're already there, I honestly can't tell, but players can definitely select towers to upgrade. Like many other tower defense titles, what appears to be a wave number is displayed in the upper right hand corner; this number indicates how many enemy waves are left.

Within the game, Jiro was also seen performing basic, adventure-type actions, such as opening doors, traveling across vast areas, and destroying plants and rock in order to uncover money. Similar to other Nintendo adventure games, the trailer also displays Jiro's life force (in the form of hearts) increasing as the game goes on, so there is clearly some manner in which to increase one's vitality.

Currently, Nintendo has released no further information regarding the title.

I keep hearing buzz about this game, it looks odd.

A Fond Farewell to Final Fantasy XI

Now that we are firmly entrenched in the 8th console generation and PC gaming is back on the rise, you would be forgiven for not hearing about the server shut down of the final game from the 6th generation: Final Fantasy XI. Even though the PC version released first and remains active to this day, the game began as an ambitious project for the PlayStation 2, and finally closed its PS2 and Xbox 360 doors on March 31, 2016. While it wasn’t the first massively multiplayer online role playing game to make its way to consoles (Everquest Adventures on the PS2 has that distinction), it was the entry point for many gamers into the world of the MMORPG. I was there for the final days of Final Fantasy XI on the console (I had been playing it on the Xbox 360 in recent years), and it was a bittersweet farewell, indeed.
