Smorgasbord of News

Here at Destroyed Controller, when your primary source of news is your RSS feeds - 18 feeds deep - and you have close to 100 feeds when you first open your computer, this is how you handle it: by throwing everything you read into one big ass post.

N3II: Ninety-Nine Nights Demo on XBLM - Yup, straight from the Major's mouth, N3II has a demo up on the Marketplace. I really hope this doesn't turn out to be as frustrating as the first one.

PlayStation Home Finally Leaving Beta...At the End of the Year - Ever since it's inceptional launch a year and a half ago to the adoring masses (the open beta, mind you), Home has been plagued with the "beta" surname, and it looked as if it was going the way of Gmail (ya know, in beta status for 5 years). It's coming out of beta, but honestly, that won't save it from issues, such as having to redownload a section every time you enter Home (at least I have to). Considering Kirk Ewing, a member of Home developer VEemee, says this little number, "Most people think that Home is sh*t. I'm here to say that it's not," well, I'd be one that's intrigued as how he thinks it's not.

Mark Hamill Done with Joker Voice Acting - That is, after Arkham Asylum 2. It will be hard to out-Joker Mark's Joker.

How Does Guild Wars Deal with Cheaters? They Send Death After You - You read that right. Guild Wars is now sending out their version of the Grim Reaper - Dhuum - and slays you (or your bot) in front of all the internet-gorging massing to see. Pure awesome. Video is beyond the link.

Traditional Final Fantasy Comes Home October 5 - Played Final Fantasy XIII? Missed playing a Final Fantasy game like it was IV, maybe even VII? Well dream no more! Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light is coming to your DS in early October, and comes with "classic turn-based battle system with customizable commands," and a instant-class-changing feature called the "Crown System. You'll also have the ability to go at a dungeon with up to 3 friends. What say you now, Crystal Chronicles?
