  • Seiken Densetsu Collection Announced For Switch Secret of Mana, released in 1993, was one of the best games for the Super NES. Now Square Enix has announced Seiken Densetsu Collection — a re-release for Nintendo Switch that contains Secret of Mana, its prequel (for the Game Boy) and its sequel (also for the SNES). All three are excellent games and this would be a terrific title for new Switch owners to play while they wait for the library to grow. There are a few problems preventing this collection from escaping Japan, however.
    For one thing, the original Mana game wasn’t called a Mana game anywhere else. For ...
  • Watch This Crazy New Persona 5 Trailer persona 5The fifth game in the Persona series, loooong in development (Persona 4 came out for PS2), will finally be hitting American stores within one month. This may be the final trailer Atlus releases for the game before launch. As in previous titles from the series, Persona 5 is part school sim, part socialization sim, and part dungeon-basher. The official description follows…
    Persona 5 is a game about the internal and external conflicts of a group of troubled youth who live dual lives. They have the typically ordinary day-to-day of a Tokyo high-schooler – attending class, after school activities and part-time jobs. ...
  • Final Fantasy 15’s Brawler Spinoff Now Free For Everyone final fantasy 15Back in November, were you wrestling with whether or not to preorder Final Fantasy 15 at Gamestop? If you recall, GS had the only preorder bonus worth going after: an entire extra game. “A King’s Tale: Final Fantasy XV” was the name of a 2-D beat-em-up game set 30 years before the events of Final Fantasy 15 and starring Noctis’s dad. The exclusivity was bound to expire eventually. Now it has.
    If you journey to the Xbox One or PS4 marketplaces right now, you can download A King’s Tale for free. Yup, for free. Just take it and it’s yours. In ...
  • Stardew Valley Confirmed For Switch stardew valleyEver since Stardew Valley was adapted for consoles people have been asking if a Switch version was in the works. Having a version of the game that could be made portable would make a big difference; it would make the gameplay more convenient — and more addictive. Today, during a special announcement in which 63 other indie titles were confirmed for Switch, Nintendo revealed Stardew Valley was one of them.
    There’s more: the Switch version of the game will come with a brand-new multiplayer mode that’s been in development for some time. It will be added to the other versions eventually, ...
  • Middle-Earth: Shadow Of War Revealed By Monolith Productions Shadow of WarFor anyone who’s a fan of Shadow of Mordor, your day has just been made, as a sequel to the popular game set in the Lord of the Rings universe has gotten a sequel in the form of Middle-Earth: Shadow of War.
    Here is the debut trailer:

    As you can see, players will once again take control of characters Talion and Celebrimbor, though they have a falling out of sorts as the trailer notes. The game promises to be bigger and better than Shadow of Mordor, and you will face not only the armies of the dark land of Mordor, but also Sauron ...
  • Square’s Final Fantasy 15 PS4 Pro Patch Actually Makes The Game Worse final fantasy xvIf you have a PS4 Pro, you may be noticing a slight hiccup in the framerate of Final Fantasy 15. It’s the result of Square’s Version 1.05 patch, and there’s currently no fix.
    Here’s the problem: originally, Final Fantasy 15 could be played in two different graphical modes on the PS4 Pro: “Lite,” which ran in 1080p at a constant 30fps, and “High,” an option for owners of 4K televisions that bumped the resolution up to 1800p but with a stuttering framerate.
    With the update, the framerate on the Lite setting has been unlocked — but that doesn’t mean it moves at ...
  • Elder Scrolls Online Morrowind: New Gameplay Trailer & Screenshots Feast your eyes on this returning visitor from the Bush and Britney Era….Morrowind is back and it’s had some work done! This addition to The Elder Scrolls Online adds the areas from Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind, first released in 2002. We’re told the storyline will take place about 700 years before the events that happened in Elder Scrolls 3, but a lot of familiar areas haven’t changed much in seven centuries (except for the graphical boost).
    Thanks to the One Tamriel patch from last year, new players eager to explore Morrowind will be able to head to that area first without ...
  • Natsume Changes Mind, Releases Harvest Moon 64…On Wii U harvest moonOut of nowhere, Natsume has announced Harvest Moon 64 for the Wii U Virtual Console. This was one of the most demanded N64 games that has never been available before, and it’s coming ONE WEEK before Nintendo puts the Wii U to bed and launches their next console, the Switch. Questions abound: why now? Why not just wait to put it on the Switch? Does the Switch even have a Virtual Console yet? (At this late date, with no word from Nintendo, we’re guessing no.)
    Harvest Moon may have gotten started on the Super NES, but HM64 was the game that ...
  • New Limits Placed On Console Skyrim Mods Last year we embarked on the bold experiment of allowing modifications to Bethesda games on consoles. Sony said no, until Microsoft said yes — then Sony said yes with some conditions. While the XBox version was more lenient, both machines imposed limits on what you can do, making the PC still the top choice for Skyrim and Fallout 4 if you care about mods.
    Today, unfortunately, more limits were decreed. Previously mod installation was limited to the amount of space available, but as of the latest patch, there will also be a limit of how MANY mods can be installed at ...
  • Stardew Valley Is Coming To Retail April 11 stardew valleyOne year ago this month, Stardew Valley debuted on Steam and became an overnight success. Until recently it’s been a game exclusive to computers, but that will soon change when the PS4 and XBox One versions of the farming sim arrive on store shelves.
    And it’s not just the game! The Stardew Valley Collector’s Edition also packs a CD of the game’s soundtrack, a miniature version of the Stardew Valley Guidebook (the big version is sold here), and a map of Pelican Town. You get all this for below 30 dollars.
    This is not the final frontier — a version of Stardew ...
