  • Life Is Strange’s First Chapter Is Free Tomorrow life is strangeStarting tomorrow, Square-Enix will be giving away the first chapter of their story of adolescence and strange phenomena called Life Is Strange. That’s correct: beginning July 21 and into forever, the price of Chapter 1 will be $0.
    Why are they being so generous? Because like a neighborhood drug pusher, they know you won’t be able to stop with just one. Life is Strange has five chapters in all, and once you’ve finished the free chapter, you’re going to want the others. Badly.
    Fair warning, OK? The free chapter is being offered on all platforms Life Is Strange can be played on: ...
  • Presenting The First 18 Minutes Of Persona 5 Atlus’s grand reveal of Persona 5 continues with the contents of today’s livestream: the opening cinematic plus the first eighteen minutes of the game. As it was yesterday, all the clips are in Japanese because the English translation won’t be completed for some time (the game isn’t even out in Japan yet). Here’s what you’ll see when you first turn Persona 5 on….
    https://youtu.be/lswcZg7BH2M
    Now here’s what you’ll get after that. Note that the majority of the characters in the main title don’t appear in this section, and most of what goes on is non-interactive cinematic material. It’s the opening of the ...
  • Don’t Forget I Am Setsuna i am setsunaSquare-Enix’s I Am Setsuna comes out today. Do you feel Square reached its creative peak during the 90’s and that they’ve gone downhill from the PS2 onward? Then buy I Am Setsuna. Do you wish Square would return to rich characters, strong storylines and compelling game mechanics? Buy I Am Setsuna. Do you want Square to listen to you for once whenever you complain about their shortcomings? Then buy a lot of copies of I Am Setsuna. Like forty.
    This is exactly the kind of game fans have wanted Square to produce. It was put together by a newly formed branch, ...
  • Atlus Hosts Live Playthrough Of Persona 5 persona 5Starved for new information on Persona 5? Atlus held a 17-and-a-half minute livestream this morning where they played through a portion of the game.
    It’s perhaps the largest and most revealing look at the game yet, with entire days’ worth of activities on display. Among them: using the crafting system, solving crossword puzzles to boost your stats (interesting), and going to a Japanese bath house.
    Unfortunately the only viewable version of the video is on some weird Japanese video site that we can’t embed here. Use this link to watch the new Persona 5 footage.
    Don’t have 17 minutes to spare? Persona Central ...
  • Fallout 4’s Far Harbor Accused Of Plagiarism far harborWere the events that unfold in Fallout 4’s big DLC expansion, Far Harbor, copied from a New Vegas mod called “Autumn Leaves”? That’s what the mod’s creator, Guillaume Veer, is accusing Bethesda of doing.
    Veer claims the story beats, characters and environments used in “Autumn Leaves” are too similar to Far Harbor’s for it to be a concidence. Both start with a discussion through an intercom before entering a Vault, both have a murder investigation that requires you to examine the crime scene and talk to every robot in the Vault, and in both, the murdered victim was the Vault’s prime ...

  • Final Fantasy’s Final Box Art Today Square-Enix released what should be the cover that greets us when we look for Final Fantasy XV this September.

    It’s Noctis and his bros making poses — some fearsome, some goofy (okay, they’re all goofy). If you look closely, you can spot the car. If you look even closer, you’ll notice those clouds in the sky AREN’T ALL CLOUDS…and they’re too busy posing to notice what’s coming for them!
    If you don’t like this cover at all, it’s reversible: the alternate image is just the Final Fantasy XV logo against a black background.
    What’s the XBox One version look like? It’s quite ...
