Where do we go from here? Well, I’m not going to promise you any content right now, considering the inconsistency we have had over the last couple weeks. We are trying to figure out an alternative to our podcast server (probably YouTube for the moment). I would also love to finish this video idea I have about E3. Hopefully, we can get something together and get this train back on the rails.
I feel like I shouldn’t have to apologize for this, because this is a free time blog. But, I hold my personal standards higher than that. With that said, I am deeply sorry that we fell short on our promises this year and I appreciate those of you who stuck with us anyways. Even if you’re not vocal, but you’re reading this. I appreciate your time and so does the rest of the FFoP Team.
If you haven’t noticed already, we are currently experiencing technical issues. If there ever was a worst time for our podcast server to fall apart, this would be it. Disaster be damned, as we attempt to ford this muddy river of a catastrophe. For the next couple weeks our podcast server will be down. However, you can still enjoy our fun lovin’ news and opinions on YouTube. We already have our Day 1 of E3 impressions up right HERE. Going forward we will attempt to operate as normal, we will just ask that you work with our duct taped solution to this problem. We greatly apologize for any inconvenience that we may have caused you, and we hope that you continue to enjoy the FFoP humor you know and love through other mediums on the site.
Remember when we told you about Mercenary Kings? They had a kickstarter, it looked amazing, and we told you to donate money. You know, the game that resembled Metal Slug. In any case, with E3 coming up in only a week, I got to thinking about what games I’m most excited about. And wouldn’t you know, Merc Kings popped into my head. So I sent my old pal Jonathan an email to see how things were going. The response was quite positive:
“We’re hoping for a release on Steam Early Access around the end of June, then for a full release a couple months later. We already got some feedback from our closed beta (which has been really helpful to find bugs and other issues) and it’s been very positive so far… Merc Kings is gonna be for PS4. We’re also considering Vita, but it’s gonna be for later… we’re licensed developers with Nintendo [as well].”
So, the game will be on PS4, and the Nintendo’s Wii U/3DS in addition to the Steam release. That being the case, you can probably look forward to Sony showing it off in a montage of sorts at this year’s E3 keynote if they incorporate indie titles into the presentation. For more information concerning Mercenary Kings and other gaming news, make sure to follow us as we cover E3 next week in our podcast extravaganza (we may also do smaller posts).
