If you haven't watch the documentary The King of Kong, well, you should.  If you have, you'll be happy to see this:

Hot sauce king Billy Mitchell is in danger of having his Donkey Kong records stripped away

They have released a FFXV benchmark tool in anticipation of its PC release next month. Pretty cool, and it looks like it’ll run on my system just fine. Only annoying thing for me is it doesn’t offer a 1440p option, but The final game will. Still, my average FPS was around 80 at 1080p on high settings, so I should be alright at 1440p.

Thank you for this. I got a score of 6124 on standard, which they say equates to "High", but only just barely. However, I got an awful lot of stuttering during the chocobo and battle sequences. My old FX-8350 processor just isn't cutting it these days, but to upgrade would mean replacing the motherboard and memory also.

EDIT Can get up to 6244 if I overclock my graphics card.

Tried it on my system that's a few years old now, got 8663 on 1080p standard.

In case you're impatient and can't wait till next week to hear Tara's dialogue (though it probably sounds better in context of the game)...

Them's Fightin' Herds is finally out! (Though Story Mode will be out later due to technical difficulties and Real Life issues with the staff.  Everything else is in place.)

Chrono Trigger was both announced and released today for Steam. Only $15. "Loaded with upgrades." I'd be crazy not to.

That's another game that should definitely come out on the 3DS Eshop channel. Chrono Trigger is truly a classic, and I really adore some of the music.

Be careful, I heard there are some issues. It also seems to be a port of the phone version, and there are some graphical issues. Might want to wait a bit.
