You Can Ride Chocobos and Go Fishing in Final Fantasy XV

Angling for some interest

With office weeaboo Robert Ramsey still sulking over the state of Final Fantasy XV, the responsibility falls upon this author's broad shoulders yet again to bring you the latest on Square Enix's long overdue role-playing release.

TGS 2015: Dragon Quest Builders Crafts a PS4 Gameplay Clip

Dragon Quest Builders Crafts a PS4 Gameplay Clip

Minecraft made afresh

Clones can be pretty darn shameless, but Dragon Quest Builders is not your ordinary rip-off – primarily because it actually looks better than Mojang's $2 billion mega brand, Minecraft. Of course, it's utterly bereft of originality – it's a copycat, after all – but what it lacks in innovation it more than makes up for in...

Brand New Final Fantasy XV Trailer Takes You Back to the Past

And not much else

Just because Final Fantasy XV didn't show up in style at Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show press conference doesn't mean it's going on hiatus for another ten years, as evidenced by this latest trailer that screams "please remember that I exist". Jokes aside, the title's newest clip once again attempts to hit us right in the emotions as...

Game Boy's Final Fantasy Adventure Gets a PS Vita Remake

Oh Mana

Final Fantasy Adventure, a Game Boy title that originally released all the way back in 1991, has a curious history – namely because it's not technically a Final Fantasy game at all and is actually the predecessor to Super Nintendo classic, Secret of Mana. Either way, a remake is in development for the PlayStation Vita and smartphones,...

Mine and craft in Square Enix's spin-off

Japan's biggest game of 2016 may be one that you least expect, as Dragon Quest Builders is shaping up to be every inch the commercial smash.

Just Cause 3 Looks Explosively Bonkers in This PS4 Trailer

Off the chain

Just Cause 3 received a suitably insane, and mercifully brief, trailer at Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show conference today. The clip sees series protagonist Rico Rodriguez performing all manner of perilous and irresponsible acts - such as back-flipping off a car which is conveniently falling into a chasm. In truth, there's not a whole lot...

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided's Getting Torn Apart for Its Ridiculous Pre-Order Strategy

YouTube trailers blasted

We feel a bit sorry for the team at Eidos Montreal - the studio behind Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. They're creating what looks to be another solid entry in the franchise, but the game's been overshadowed by its recently revealed pre-order strategy. For those that are out of the loop, publisher Square Enix is adopting a...

Go on a Road Trip with Fresh Final Fantasy XV Screenshots

You drive me crazy

Final Fantasy XV may look like a game starring One Direction in the jungle, but you can't fault its car. The gorgeous black convertible otherwise known as Regalia may have the stupidest name this side of KITT in Knight Rider, but it has curves in all of the right places, and is perfect for cruising around coastal towns like the...
