    Final Fantasy XIII is the fastest selling title in the franchise

    If the evidence on your friends’ list isn’t enough, Square Enix has announced that everyone is playing Final Fantasy XIII. Well maybe not everyone, but definitely more than ever before. Final Fantasy XIII sold more in one week than any other game in franchise history. In just five days, Final Fantasy XIII sold more than one million units. Before fanboys get up in arms about which system sold the most, the figure above counts both systems. I know I’ll be playing my copy this weekend! Follow

    “Yoga” for Wii Features Model Inspiration

    Sure, a metric ton of Wii exercise games include a yoga component, but how many are dedicated yoga games? That’s right. Just this one. “Yoga” for Wii, from Austrian publisher JoWooD, features top model Anja Rubik as your at-home yoga instructor. The game features real-world settings, the ability to create your own flows, and Wii Balance Board support (it’s not necessary to practice, of course). The game is suited for everyone, beginners and experts alike, and should be available soon. Follow

    Why does SDCC stay with Travel Planners?

    Many of the readers at GamingAngels know that when it comes to con season, the one con that means the most to me is San Diego Comic Con. I have been to SDCC for the past 10 years. This year is going to be lucky number 11. Unfortunately, or fortunately, SDCC has grown very quickly and to the point that it can barely hold everyone who wants to go. With both hotels and passes selling out months before the convention. The good things about SDCC growing is that it means that more people will want to market or make announcements at SDCC, because of the enormous press coverage and access to the “geek market”. I also love that it means more people are coming for various reasons, but will likely be exposed to something that they may have never seen before. It’s great if SDCC can create more fans of

    How To: Make a Patch Cable

    Ever broken the connector on your Ethernet cable? Can’t find the right length patch cable or just wondering how to make your own? Look no further I have your answers. I haven’t had too much time to test out any new games or even old ones lately, so I thought, why not teach you how to make a patch cable? In this video you’ll learn the basics of networking 101, how to make a patch cable – also known as a straight through cable. These cables are used for practically all home network cabling: from your cable modem to your router, your router to the PC, PS3, Xbox and Wii. In some cases with one extra piece of equipment hosting LAN parties too. I have always preferred making my own because we run our own Ethernet cables through the house and I really hate running cables on the floor or

    New Stats on Female Gamers Shatter Myths

    We (and to any men that are reading this, I use the words “we” and “us” to indicate women here, but you can keep reading) know that there are a lot of things that some unenlightened men just don’t seem to get about women and gaming. For instance, more women play games online than men (though that includes games like Farmville), and we buy more console games in a given year than men do. But has anyone done a really recent study about women’s gaming habits? Not really. Well, not until Lifetime decided to (for those of you who don’t know, Lifetime is a “women’s” television network in the U.S.) do their own study titled, “She’s Got Game.” They surveyed 1,000 women on their gaming habits, and talked to a pool of men and gaming CEOs (this latter group…perhaps not the best people to ask right now?). What did they

    Guest Review: How to Train Your Dragon

    This week, I was one of a lucky few to see an advance screening of Dreamworks’ How to Train Your Dragon, which comes to theaters March 26th. **Warning this review contains spoilers** It features vikings and dragons in an epic struggle. There are animated sheep with expressive eyes, and dragons ranging from small and stupid to large and intensely intelligent. The movie is presented in IMAX 3D, and if you have the opportunity to see it in this presentation, I strongly suggest it. 3D effects permeate the entire movie, from bits of ash floating down all around you to the bow of the viking ship emerging from a foggy screen to sail directly at you. Well worth the possible annoyance of the 3D glasses, which easily fit over my normal glasses, and gave me a wonderful show. The theater was packed full of families, as well as the occasional clump
