  • Preparations For Final Fantasy VII Remake Will Take At Least Another Year final fantasy viiAnyone familiar with Square these days knows how ridiculously long they take to create one game. So it should come as no surprise that if a recent comment from Square Enix producer Yoshinori Kitase is correct, it’ll be at least 2017 before the company feels it’ll be ready to do serious work on the project.
    “I believe that this year will still be a year of preparations for Final Fantasy VII Remake,” Kitase said to the magazine Famitsu, reported by Siliconera. “I’d like to create a new kind of value for the hardware that is the PlayStation 4 for our next ...
  • Final Fantasy 15’s Story Was Inspired by…The Last Of Us? final fantasy xvIn a new interview with the website Examiner, Final Fantasy 15 director Hajime Tabata revealed the influences that inspired some parts of the upcoming game. For example, the car that Prince Noctis drives throughout the world is based on Tabata’s father’s car. On this he added the bond between father and son would be a theme. He also admitted The Last Of Us was an influence in the manner through which the story will be told.
    “It’s important that the story progresses through the gameplay in a very unforced way, in a similar way that it was done with The Last ...
  • Snap Into This Fallout 4 Mod That Replaces Enemies With Randy Savage randy savageA while ago, a modder who calls himself “FancyPants” created a mod for Skyrim that would replace every dragon in the game with Macho Man Randy Savage. Recently, the man was playing through Fallout 4 and thought to himself that it was time to Randy-fy another game.
    When roaming through the commonwealth, I ponder many thoughts, thoughts like “Why do Molerats dig so much” and “Why is this person stuck in a wall?”. Whilst pondering these thoughts, I always miss the lack of Randy Savage in game. Well don’t worry fellow traveller, for I have saved you, behold Randy in all ...

  • You WILL Get Final Fantasy XV In 2016, Says Square final fantasy XVPlenty of folks doubted it, given how Square’s pace of production in the last ten years reminds them of those sloths in the “Zootopia” trailer, but today the company swore up and down that consumers would find Final Fantasy XV on store shelves before this year ends.
    FFXV’s director, Hajime Tabata, made the promise in a blog post today. “We will finally release FFXV this year, in 2016! In development, previous phases required wisdom and strength. However, moving forward the final phase will focus on effort and willpower.”
    “I vow to you all that every member in the team will do their ...
  • Final Fantasy 9 Coming To PC And Phones final fantasy 9With the number of fans Final Fantasy 9 has, one would assume it’s on Steam already if they haven’t looked — but it isn’t. This absence will be corrected soon: Square put out a trailer today announcing a port of FFIX for PC, iOS and Android.
    After what happened with the “makeover” Square gave Final Fantasy 6, the question on everybody’s mind is “DID THEY MESS WITH THIS?” The answer, blessedly, is no. Footage from the actual port is in the trailer and indicates it should remain largely untouched. Similar to FF7’s port, the game will have up-rezzed polygonal characters running ...
  • Cancelled Fire Emblem Game Would Have Been “Much Like Pikmin” fire emblemYou may be waiting for Dark Horse’s upcoming Fire Emblem: Awakening artbook, but the Japanese already have something better(don’t they always?): a 25th anniversary FE artbook detailing production secrets on all the games in the series, including many that weren’t released here. But there’s one page that isn’t about any game released at ALL: it deals with a Fire Emblem that was cancelled mid-development and never released.
    A scan of the page, showing off sketches and designs from the vapor sequel, is now circulating the Net, translated by the Wordpress blog Kantopia….

    Kantopia also translated an interview with Fire Emblem series veteran ...

  • Fallout 4 Has Now Been Beaten Without A Single Kill fallout 4One of the complaints some have had with Fallout 4 is that it seems to kowtow to the dudebro demands of the modern AAA market by making shootouts mandatory. Some fans have responded by trying to find ways to get through the game with as few kills as possible, with the ultimate goal of discovering the zero-kill path. Now someone has done it, and his name is Kyle Hinckley.
    Semantics are important here: Kyle beat this game without the Pip Boy tallying a single kill on its monitor. That doesn’t mean nobody had to die in the process. The game is ...
  • FFXIII’s Lightning Being Used To Sell Purses In Japan FFXIIIThe character of Lightning was never very popular in America or anywhere else outside of Japan, but that sure didn’t stop Square from making two extra games out of FFXIII, one of which was entirely about Lightning and no one else. The reason? Well….she was fairly popular in her home country. Enough so that she’s now been licensed to sell purses.

    The designer handbag company Louis Viutton has begin using Lightning to sell its new line of purses. Nicolas Ghesquiere, the artistic director behind the ad, tweeted a stereotypical fashion designer statement: “Reality and fantasy become one. Lightning a genuine heroine ...
  • Witcher 3 Mod Lets You Play As Yennefer, Ciri And More yenneferModder ParKan has created a patch for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt that will allow you to play as Yennefer of Vengerburg instead of Geralt. Ciri, Triss and Shani are also options….you can play as any major female in the game. She’ll move the same way Geralt does and use the same weapons.
    This won’t be a perfect fit. The mod only swaps out Geralt’s rig for the woman of your choice, so she’s going to sound a bit….gruff and man-like since that part can’t really be changed. Neither can the general storyline, so at one point there will be two ...
