  • Dragon Quest XI Logo Revealed, Thanks To Leak dragon quest XIAbove you see the blurry image of the logo for the next main game in the Dragon Quest series. It’s blurry because the only copy the media has right now is 200 by 200 pixels. And the reason for that is because no one was supposed to have it yet.
    Square Enix’s new Dragon Quest game will be officially unveiled tomorrow, July 28, during an event that will be livestreamed at 5 PM. That’s Japan time, mind you, so it’ll actually happen when most of us are asleep. We don’t know anything about the game yet. But we do know what ...
  • Bethesda Reveals New Fallout 4 Details At QuakeCon fallout 4Today during QuakeCon, Bethesda revealed some new details about the hotly anticipated Fallout 4, specifically the types of characters you will be meeting in the game.
    They started by describing the dog, which is once again named Dogmeat. This time they based Dogmeat on a real dog — the lead designer’s dog. In order to animate Dogmeat as accurately as possible, they filmed that dog going about its day doing many different things. Bethesda says you will get Dogmeat very early (as soon as you leave the vault, in fact — instant dog!) and you can send him to conduct tasks ...
  • Odin Sphere Will Be Remastered In HD Soon odin sphereIf there’s any PS2 game that deserves the HD treatment, it’s the 2D RPG sidescroller made of beautiful paintings known as Odin Sphere. (That and Okami, which already got an HD remaster years ago.) Thanks to the original developer, Vanillaware, this game WILL be remastered soon, and thanks to Atlus, it will get a North American release.
    But there’s more! You won’t just be buying the same game again with a sharper finish. Vanillaware will be updating the combat and RPG mechanics, and adding some new content. They’re keeping mum on just what will be new, but they do mention additional ...
  • Presenting The Fallout Anthology Package, Complete With Mini-Nuke fallout anthologyIf the announcement for Fallout 4 made you interested in getting into the Fallout series, but you’ve never played any of the previous games before, Bethesda has you covered. Today during QuakeCon 2015, they revealed the Fallout Anthology Package for PC. It comes in the form of a mini-nuke that makes a special bomb sound effect when you push it somewhere (presumably the big red nose).
    Inside the nuke is every title in the Fallout series released to date: Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics, Fallout 3 (Game of the Year Edition), and Fallout New Vegas (Ultimate Edition). They fit a little ...
  • Famitsu Gives New Info On Project Setsuna During E3 a mysterious trailer was let loose by Square-Enix for a game called Project Setsuna. No gameplay footage or even cutscenes were shown; just several sketches and some moody music, plus drops of water, that suggested sadness or crying.
    This week’s issue of Weekly Famitsu contained an interview where Square-Enix president Yosuka Matsuda gave a tiny scrap of information out about the title. Turns out our suppositions of sadness were right on the money — in fact, that’s what the name is referring to. “Setsuna” is intended to suggest the Japanese word of “setsunasa,” which roughly means “sadness” or “sorrow.”
    If ...
  • The New Dragon Quest Spinoff Looks Very Minecraft-y Dragon QuestEarlier in the month Square-Enix revealed that the next game to carry the Dragon Quest brand would be a spinoff called “Dragon Quest Builders.” Today they showed off three screenshots, the first glimpses anybody has ever gotten of the game. Stop me when this starts looking familiar to you.

    Yup….it’s definitely Minecraft, or as legally close as Square can get. I’ll explain the game mechanics, but you likely already know them: you mine materials from the land using the hammer shown in the pics. With the materials you gather, you can build objects like houses. Your goal in this case ...

  • Witcher 3’s New Patch Needs A Patch witcher 3CD Projekt Red released Witcher 3’s long-overdue 1.07 patch last week. It took a while to be completed, but maybe it needed a little more work than that.
    Eurogamer.net’s Digital Foundry analyzed the effects of the patch on all versions of the game and concluded that while it fixes some problems, it introduces new ones: most notably, the framerate becomes significantly slower. In some areas on XBox One, the rendering speed crawls down to a mere 20 frames a second.

    “Essentially, gameplay on Xbox One now appears to rely on a similar double-buffer v-sync set-up to the PS4 game, locking its frame-rate ...
  • Witcher 3 Gets Upgraded With Patch 1.07 witcher 3The latest patch for The Witcher 3 took a long time to arrive, but you’ll soon see why. The patch — which is for all platforms, PC, XBox One and PS4 — does more than just fix bugs: it adds content for free, such as a new outfit for Ciri, a stash for players to store items in, and an “alternative movement style” for Geralt. Now he can move alternatively!
    This added up to the most elaborate and lengthy patch Witcher 3 has had to date. If you seriously have the time to read every single patch note below, it means ...
  • It’s Over: Here’s How Much The Shenmue 3 Kickstarter Made shenmue 3One month ago, Yu Suzuki took to the Sony stage during E3 and announced that he was launching a Kickstarter, effective immediately, to fund Shenmue 3. Sega gave him permission, Sony agreed to help with promotion and funding (in exchange for some exclusivity), but it would be the fans that would determine how big the game could actually be.
    The Kickstarter expired this afternoon, and wound up making $6,333,295 from 69,320 backers — over triple the initial amount asked for. This put Shenmue 3 over the record for the most funded video game in Kickstarter history, breaking the previous number set ...
  • Imperial City: New Expansion Coming To Elder Scrolls Online imperial cityThe first extension for The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited will arrive later this summer. Titled Imperial City, it will come in two parts: the base game, which everybody who owns a copy of ESO can use, and the DLC pack, which opens up the entire area but will cost you.
    Located at the heart of the Cyrodiilic Empire, the Imperial City has fallen into ruin, claimed by Molag Bal’s forces. It is comprised of six Imperial Districts, the extensive Imperial Sewers network, and the White-Gold Tower at its center. The dangers of Imperial City and the Sewers below are best ...
