  • Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Video Shows Augmented Man Losing Control In a curious video, a man appears to be losing control of his augmented arm, and thus begins destroying a liquor store, though apparently on accident.
    Though this will likely not persuade the Anti-Aug movement that seems to be growing as of late. As the divide between people and those with augments continues to grow. For proof of this, if you watch until the end of the video you’ll see a new site has been born from the Ant-Aug sentiment via AugAware.org. Which will no doubt shoot out more propaganda against those with artificial bodies.

    Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is coming August ...

  • We Were Right: Valkyrie Anatomia Is A Phone Game valkyrie anatomiaSorry for that little burst of hope, folks. Today the lid was blown off Square’s Valkyrie Anatomia, and it was revealed that it is indeed a phone game.
    The first Valkyrie game since 2009 was announced with a trailer, but said trailer doesn’t provide much information. It’s entirely in Japanese and shows no footage of the game. According to Siliconera the translation roughly speaks something about approaching death “together,” which fits in with the theme of the first game (Lenneth’s army was gathered from the dead).

    Yoshinori Yamagishi, who produced all previous Valkyrie Profile games, is producing this one as well, and ...
  • Final Fantasy 9 Finally Available On Steam final fantasy 9After being repeatedly teased, hinted at, tested and pulled, Final Fantasy 9 is now, finally, solidly for sale on Steam forever.
    https://youtu.be/OeWqEcI7ZtY
    FF9 is one of the favorites among Final Fantasy fans for its lighter tone, its imagination and its vibrant cast of characters (the last time we would get something besides weirdly-clothed static humans). This Steam port features enhanced textures, Steam achievements, trading cards, auto saves and cloud saves. Backgrounds will still be foggy since Square lacked the foresight to save the originals.
    One other, possibly more controversial feature the Steam version of FF9 will sport is the ability to cheat with ...
  • At Last: The Return Of Valkyrie Profile Valkyrie AnatomiaWhen Star Ocean 5 contained extra music tracks from the Valkyrie Profile series, we wondered if something was up. Now it’s been confirmed: a new game in the Valkyrie Profile series is on the way. With the title Valkyrie Anatomia -The Origin, it sounds like it could be a prequel — but no information is available at this present time except for the name.
    The original Valkyrie Profile came out for the Playstation 1 in 2000, in limited quantities, and is now horribly expensive (there is a PSP port that costs less). It was an unconventional game that was part side-scroller, ...
  • Romancing SaGa 2 Being Localized For The US After 23 Years romancing sagaRegional differences are harsh. Sometimes an entire continent will not get to experience an excellent game unless they know Japanese and/or import. For example, Australia and the entirety of Europe never got Chrono Trigger on SNES. Its DS port marks the first time any of those countries got to experience it legally.
    While America’s been fortunate for the most part, we have our missed titles. No one outside of Japan got the Square SNES games Secret of Mana 2, Bahamut Lagoon, and Romancing SaGa or its sequel. The former two still have not been rereleased, but SaGa’s been luckier. The first ...
  • Fallout 4 Gets Another Major Award fallout 4While Fallout 4 may not have been the follow-up to Fallout 3 hardcore fans were hoping for, it’s pleasing the critics all the same. Now it can add to its trophy shelf the Game of the Year Award from the British Academy Games Awards, or BAFTA.
    The ceremony took place this morning (or this evening if you live in the UK) and Bethesda’s new Fallout took home the highest honor. It was nominated in only one other category (for sound) and lost there. Overall there seemed to be a heavy bias toward a mobile game called “Her Story.” And what exactly ...
  • FFVII Remake Producer Clarifies How Breaking Up The Game Will Work final fantasy viiFirst the long-demanded Final Fantasy VII remake was revealed at last, and everyone cheered! Then it was revealed that the game would be divided and released one piece at a time, and everyone slowly lowered their hands and their screams trailed off.
    What, exactly, did that mean — small two or three hour chunks every so often, or what? Producer Yoshinori Kitase clarified how it would work in the new issue of Game Informer. He says if you think of FFXII as being released as three games over the course of several years, you’ll get the idea — they have something ...
  • Fallout 4 Gets Wasteland Workshop On April 12 wasteland workshopThe second of three big expansions for Fallout 4 will be arriving next week, Bethesda Game Studios announced today. This one allows you to expand your settlement and build crazy traps for intruders, as well as capture and grow your own lethal army of beasts.
    With Wasteland Workshop, you can design and set cages to capture live creatures – from raiders to Deathclaws. Tame them or have them face off in battle, even against your fellow settlers. The Wasteland Workshop also includes a suite of new design options for your settlements like nixie tube lighting, letter kits, taxidermy and more.
    The ability ...
  • Star Ocean 5 Comes June 28 In Its Own Ridiculous Collectors Edition Star Ocean 5: Integrity and Faithlessness arrives in America, courtesy of Square, on June 28. We’ve already covered that if you can get a copy from the first-run printing, it’ll include DLC codes for special in-game items, plus alternate battle music taken from the Valkyrie Profile series. But there’s an option beyond that….
    Like Final Fantasy XV before it, Star Ocean 5 will be getting its own expansive, expensive Collectors Edition that includes everything the Day One version of the game has, plus these things:
    ●     Collector’s Edition steelbook case containing the game and “The Sounds of Star Ocean”: a CD sampler ...
  • Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ Coming In Three Days kingdom heartsA new Kingdom Hearts is about to come out. No, not 3. There’s a reason you’re just hearing about it now: it’s a mobile game.
    Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ is the name of a new freemium title for iOS and Android. Instead of Sora or any other character, you play as a new Keyblade wielder of your own design. If any of this sounds familiar, that’s because it’s the reincarnation of Kingdom Hearts χ, a browser game.
    Storywise, this game takes place years before any other in the series, main or spinoff. But you won’t have to play it to fill in ...
