  • Final Fantasy XV Game Designers Answer Fan Questions final fantasy xvThe official Final Fantasy XV website held a small Q&A in its forum section today; three fan questions were selected and answered by the design team.
    Two of the three answered were about towns (because we all remember how we got stiffed on those with #13). “How much of the big cities like Altissia/Insomnia will we be able to explore?” asked one fan, and Final Fantasy XV planner Ishikawa Tomonori assured him/her, much more than last time. “I can tell everyone a little about Altissia at this time. Altissia has many and varied locations, such as multiple cafes, ship-bourne market places ...
  • Final Fantasy XIV Actress Found Dead final fantasy xivBad news to report today, folks. One of the voice actresses for Square-Enix’s last MMO, Final Fantasy XIV, was found dead in her home in London last week. It gets worse: this doesn’t appear to be an accident, and whoever did it also killed off her two children.
    Police are now looking for her partner Arthur Simpson-Kent, whom they believe is a prime suspect. There was evidence that whoever committed the murders tried to hide the bodies afterward, with no success.
    Syan Blake, in addition to voice work, appeared on several British TV shows. She was 43. Her kids were eight and ...
  • Good News And Bad News Regarding The Final Fantasy Adventure Remake adventures of manaFinal Fantasy Adventure, released in 1991 for the Game Boy, was not actually a Final Fantasy (even though it had a Chocobo in it). It was the first game in the Mana series, renamed by Square’s US marketing team. This was followed by Secret of Mana, and believe it or not, FFA was just as good as SoM even with the graphical limitations of the Game Boy system. I loved it, personally, and I welcome any remake Square wants to create, though I’d prefer a rerelease of the original too.
    Square already remade this game in 2003 for the Game Boy ...
  • 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 ...
