Insert soft piano music here

An iconic piece of Final Fantasy history, Final Fantasy X's opening cutscene still sends shivers up the spines of many, over a decade after its initial release.

Final Fantasy XV Is Technically 9 Years Old Today

You what

Camera problems, dumb AI, and poor combat all discussed

Fan of Final Fantasy XIV? This Trailer Is Definitely the Best Thing You'll See Today

Ultimate finish

In what has to be one of the best joke trailers we've seen in a long time, Square Enix has slapped the cast of Final Fantasy XIV Online: A Realm Reborn into a Street Fighter-esque brawl, and released the madness in the form of the video that we've embedded. The fake trailer was shown during a recent Japanese live event regarding the...

Deus Ex's Developer Is Having Fun with the New Call of Duty Trailer

Eidos Montreal may be poking fun at the new Call of Duty: Black Ops III trailer, but secretly we suspect that it'll be a teensy bit nervous this morning. Unfortunately for the firm, its Thief reboot boasted some uncanny similarities to the infinitely superior Dishonored – and now it looks like Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will be going into...

Bad News for Us Writers as Dragon Quest Heroes Gets a Massive Western Subtitle

Do we have to

Gosh darn it Square Enix, you nearly had it all. Dragon Quest Heroes by itself was a quick, memorable, and easy name to write a dozen times over, and now you've gone and ruined it by giving the action role-playing game a gigantic subtitle for its Western release. Sure, the Japanese version's got a big old sub as well, but did we...
