World of Goo Piracy Rate 90%

Here’s a horrible fact; only one in ten people playing World of Goo has actually paid for it.

“Last we checked, the piracy rate was about 90 percent,” said Carmel in a Rock, Paper, Shotgun posting.

“We’re doing okay, though. We’re getting good sales through WiiWare, Steam and our Web site. Not going bankrupt just yet.”

I urge all you reading this post, if you want a really, really good game, spend the 15 bucks and purchase World of Goo. You will be happy you did.

FFCC Still on Track For Wii!

Yesterday, the internet was abuzz with rumors stating that Square-Enix cancelled the promising looking Final Fantasy title for Nintendo Wii and I am very pleased to report, the rumor has been “officially” squashed (this is actually why we held off on posting it). Check out the quote below regarding the game:

“While much of EGM’s ‘Rumor Mill’ contents end up being accurate, in this case the report is incorrect.

We have never announced that Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers has been cancelled and have every intention of releasing it. There may be some concerns as a firm ship date has not been set but rest assured there will be an announcement once we finalize the date internally.

Although there are many Square Enix related rumors out there that we do not comment on, due to the feedback from the readers, we felt it was necessary to provide a statement to alleviate the worries of those who are looking forward to the game. The fan base that the Final Fantasy series has is appreciated by everyone at Square Enix (not only the developers) so we hope this statement will prevent any further spreading of the rumor.

We apologize for any unnecessary distress this rumor may have caused and hope the fans of the series can again look forward to the upcoming release of Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers.” – Square-Enix statement

First EA Sports Active Screen

Looks like EA wants to ride the wave of success that Wii Fit has brought Nintendo; check out the first images of the Nintendo Wii game EA Sports Active, a new title from Electronic Arts for Wii that looks to capture many of the gamers who have fallen in love with Wii Fit.

The game will offer a number of various activities such as race, fitness exercises, tennis, boxing and more Wiimote / Nunchuk activities to give gamers a real work out. It’s no Jilian Michaels fitness but I think it looks pretty decent don’t you?
