The bad news is the wait is over is because the game has finally been shitcanned. Kotaku says their inside sources have told them Square Enix has finally canceled the game, which was announced back in 2006, and only sporadically come out with trailers and screenshots since then (and none in quite a while). Not only do I trust Kotaku and their sources more than most sites, the project has clearly been troubled since the beginning; plus, it makes sense that nothing good could ever possibly come out of the abysmal pit of suck that was Final Fantasy XIII. The silver lining is maybe now director Tetsuya Nomura can get off his ass and finally make Kingdom Hearts 3. Thanks to Stephanie F. for the tip.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
