Final Fantasy 10/10-2 remasters on PC are missing the dual-audio option fans want

Modders are trying to fix the technical issues Square Enix couldn't

The newly released Steam versions of Final Fantasy 10 and Final Fantasy 10-2 feature English and Japanese voice acting options, and a variety of subtitle options, but players are limited in how they can mix and match the game's text and voice — and that limitation isn't sitting well with Final Fantasy fans.

On Steam, Square Enix detailed audio and subtitle support for the Windows PC versions of Final Fantasy 10/10-2 HD Remastered, saying that "all available languages will be playable in all territories." At the game's launch, players will have to select which voice option — Japanese or English — they want to listen to, and from there they'll have a handful of subtitle and text language options.

Peachy Printer raised over $600K and now the company is broke

A Kickstarter campaign that raised more than 651,000 Canadian dollars ($632,000) in late 2013 for a $100 3D printer is now broke, allegedly because the project's co-founder stole more than CA$320,000 of backer contributions to build a house for himself.

Rylan Grayston, one of the creators of the Peachy Printer, posted a lengthy Kickstarter update yesterday, preemptively telling backers that the news he was about to disclose had "plagued this company for over a year." In the video, which can be seen above, Grayston asked Peachy Printer co-founder David Boe — who invested the initial $10,000 Peachy Printer needed to get started in 2013 — about what he did with more than CA$250,000 worth of backer contributions.
