Just Cause 3's Collector's Edition Includes a Grappling Hook

No, it doesn't actually work

Introducing a whole new kind of pointless tat is Just Cause 3's recently announced collector's edition, which comes with a replica grappling hook.

Hitman on PS4 Won't Release as a Full Game, and It'll Be Digital Only at First

Let's try to make sense out of this

You may have seen the new Hitman at E3 2015. You may even have gotten hyped for it.

This Probably Isn't The Dragon Quest Announcement You Wanted

Square Enix wants in on the Minecraft crowd

Last week, Square Enix was teasing a Dragon Quest announcement in Japan.

Back where it belongs?

We get the slightest suspicion that Square Enix and Sony are working together to save the home console in Japan.

A night to remember

We're not going to lie - we still get goosebumps when we watch that Final Fantasy VII Remake trailer.

So, What Is World of Final Fantasy on PS4 and Vita Exactly?

Final Fantasy for a new generation

When it was first unveiled at Sony's E3 2015 press conference, no one was quite sure what to make of the cutesy World of Final Fantasy.

Say it ain't so

We're not sure about you, but we're finding it pretty difficult to maintain hype for the PlayStation 4 port of Final Fantasy VII. It's probably because, y'know, an actual remake of the PSone classic was announced at Sony's E3 2015 press conference, which we guess renders the mentioned port a bit obsolete. Yes, you read that...
