Because the Apple Watch Is The Only Games System You Really Need

  Technology’s gone batshit crazy these days. Here in the spangly futuristic world of 2016, nobody reads those old-fashioned ‘book’ things any more. Get with the freaking times, grandpa, and get yourself an E-reader already. We all carry around smartphones, which have about eight billion functions (7,999,999,997 of which are entirely unnecessary but pretty cool).  

We’ve gone from catching Pokemon on chunky-ass breezeblock-sized Game Boys to Pokemon Go. What a time to be alive. We’re all bigger lazy asses than ever with all this tech (other than Pokemon Go, natch), but hell, that’s the price we pay. I’m quite the tech whore myself, but one thing I don’t quite understand is the Apple Watch.

I’ve no beef with you, Apple. I really don’t. I like what you’ve done with MP3 players. But this lil’ wristwatch is much too ostentatious for my tastes. It claims to do every-freaking-thing in one, on a tiny screen unequipped to do most of said things. Case in point? Proper hardcore gamey game-flavored RPG action.

Still, Square Enix, the acclaimed Final Fantasy guys, are taking a shot at it anyway. As Polygon reports, the company has announced Cosmos Rings, their first RPG for the Apple Watch. All we know so far is that it’s coming later this Summer, and looks to be a spin-off of the Chaos Rings mobile series.

If nothing else, this shows the heavy-duty support that mobile gaming is continuing to get, as the whole thing gets bigger and bigger.
