Oh Wow, Final Fantasy XV Gets Three Whole New Screenshots

What next, another 90 seconds of gameplay?

You know that feeling when you've been waiting for a game for almost a decade and then it doesn't decide to show up at the world's biggest gaming expo? So you wait a little longer and it turns up at Gamescom with 90 seconds of gameplay footage that doesn't even look close to being ready? Yes, we're still...

Final Fantasy XV Team in Talks to Use Just Cause 3 Engine Tech

Will this game ever come out?

Final Fantasy XV is releasing next year, according to director Hajime Tabata. However, striding into full development of the release hasn't stopped the team from engaging in new talks with the studio behind Just Cause 3 - another property under Square Enix's umbrella. "What we're going to be talking about is possibly...

Lara Croft's Next Adventure Likely Won't Be Late on PS4

Well, that's a relief

Everyone in the entertainment industry is absolutely obsessed with trilogies, so it's no surprise to learn that Crystal Dynamics has three games mapped out for Tomb Raider's current story arc. Square Enix boss Phil Rogers let the snippet slip during an interview with GameSpot earlier today, describing Lara Croft's latest...

90 Seconds of Final Fantasy XV Gameplay Is All You're Getting

We should have seen this coming

Well wasn't that a colossal waste of time? Final Fantasy XV's live Active Time Report has just ended, and the only thing of any real worth that we got was 90 seconds of new gameplay footage - and even then, we're stretching that particular description. The clip shows Noctis and the gang making their way down to an...

Gamescom 2015: We Hope You're Not Betting on Final Fantasy XV Getting a Release Date Today

We Hope You're Not Betting on Final Fantasy XV Getting a Release Date Today

Call off the party

At the time of writing, we're just twenty or so minutes away from Final Fantasy XV's Gamescom 2015 livestream. The game missed out on putting in an appearance at E3 so it could come back with a bang at the German convention, but it's time to put a dampener on your potential hype, we're afraid. Many were hoping that the title...

Gamescom 2015: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Dons the Best Ever Ray-Bans in New Screens

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Dons the Best Ever Ray-Bans in New Screens

City of glasses

Not every game needs to have a brand new trailer for Gamescom 2015, y'know. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is one such title that, so far, has opted for a fresh set of screenshots, rather than a fancy pants new video for you to watch. In the images, we see gruff protagonist Adam Jensen modelling his new sunglasses and glorious goatee,...

Gamescom 2015: 10 Years Later and the 'Story Begins' with Final Fantasy XV's Dawn Trailer

10 Years Later and the 'Story Begins' with Final Fantasy XV's Dawn Trailer

Shed a tear

We're not sure what to make of Final Fantasy XV's Gamescom 2015 trailer. On the one hand, yes, it is actually a new look at the game. On the other, it doesn't really show much at all. Featuring a young Noctis and his regretful father, it's a pretty emotional clip, but it's hard not to feel like we need something more at this point...

Gamescom 2015: New Just Cause 3 Gameplay Packs as Many Explosions as Possible

New Just Cause 3 Gameplay Packs as Many Explosions as Possible

Boom town

Oh Rico, when will your lust for fiery explosions ever be satisfied? We're not sure if that question has an answer, but Just Cause 3's protagonist doesn't seem to be giving up on a life of chaos any time soon. The sandbox title's newest trailer is more of the same, but we doubt anyone's really complaining. The carnage on display looks...

Gamescom 2015: Rise of the Tomb Raider Goes Gung-Ho in Gameplay Trailer

Rise of the Tomb Raider Goes Gung-Ho in Gameplay Trailer

Killer Croft

Crystal Dynamics looked to Uncharted for inspiration for its Tomb Raider reboot, and it looks like the developer's used Naughty Dog as a guide again. This time the studio's latest takes more than a few cues from The Last of Us, as we see protagonist Lara Croft sneaking through an enemy base Rambo-style, slitting lots of throats. The...

What Time Are the EA, Final Fantasy XV, and Call of Duty Gamescom 2015 Streams?

Live and kicking

Over the years, we've gotten used to Gamescom being one of the biggest weeks in the gaming calendar for PlayStation. That's not entirely true in 2015, though, as Sony has opted to forgo its annual press conference at the German show in favour of Paris Games Week a little later in the year. The decision seemed sound at the time,...

Rumour: Is Final Fantasy XII Coming to the PS4 Next?

Is Final Fantasy XII Coming to the PS4 Next?

Distant Worlds composer seems to think so

Social media erupted last night during a Distant Worlds concert featuring Final Fantasy XII composer Hitoshi Sakimoto. Speaking during the event introductions, conductor Arnie Roth said that a "remake" of the aforementioned PlayStation 2 favourite is on the way – although it's likely that he meant to say...

Review: Life Is Strange: Episode 4 - Dark Room (PS4)

Life Is Strange: Episode 4 - Dark Room (PS4)

Dark side of the moons

French developer DONTNOD really kicked things into overdrive with the third episode of Life Is Strange. While the first two episodes were certainly divisive – even amongst the staff here - it would be hard to argue that the series wasn't in the process of carving out its own niche. Episode three was where proceedings truly...

Dragon Quest Heroes II Points a Sword at PS4, PS3, Vita Next Year in Japan

Be your hero, baby

Slasher spin-off Dragon Quest Heroes II will cut the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita to ribbons in Spring 2016 – but only in Japan. The sequel to Omega Force's popular character action release will feature a new world, fresh story, an all-new protagonist, and four-player multiplayer. Sounds like Square Enix is throwing...
