  • Fallout 4 Was Intentionally Revealed When It Was To Please Numerous Departments Within Bethesda When a game is released is important, when it’s announced relative to that is just as important. For Fallout 4, the game was announced officially in June, a little before E3 in fact. Then at E3 it was announced that it was going to release in November, a mere six months away at the time. Why did that happen? Well, according to Peter Hines, it was a collective decision to help please many at Bethesda. Not the least of which was Todd Howard.
    “If you ask Todd he’d probably prefer like a week or even a day between announce and launch,” ...
  • You Can Go The Entirety of Fallout 4 Without Crafting What you can and cannot do in video games is very important to the core of the game itself. This goes double for games that try and have as much as possible in them. For the upcoming Fallout 4, a lot of care and detail was put into the crafting system, which will allow you to make pretty much any weapon you can think of, and reconfigure armor to your specifications. Also, you can craft and fix up buildings and villages to your desires. You’d think that this would mean it’d be mandatory for certain things in the game to happen ...
  • Fallout 4’s Story Will Be “Kept Under Wraps” Until Launch fallout 4If we’re being honest with ourselves, we live in an age where leaks of information are everywhere. It is to the extent that many key things about certain video games can be spoiled before they’ve even been scheduled to be revealed (looking at you Smash Bros.). For Bethesda, and their upcoming Fallout 4 title, they know that very well and have thus been on lockdown about key parts of their game. This goes especially for the story, which we only know a little bit about, and even then that’s bare bones. So will we know more before the launch? Not if Pete ...
  • Here’s What Square-Enix Will Be Showing Off At PAX Prime PAX PrimeSquare-Enix Inc. has released a full list of upcoming titles that they’ll be showing at PAX Prime, as well as a few conferences and events they’ll be holding at the event. It’s quite the lengthy list, and the majority of games in the Square stable will be fully playable. Plus, there’s a strange charity event where the Hitman character is being used to support the fight against cancer….okay.
    PAX Prime begins in Seattle on August 28, and lasts through the 31st.
    LOS ANGELES (August 20, 2015) – Square Enix® today announced its lineup for Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) Prime 2015, coming to ...
  • iPhone Version of Final Fantasy VII Lets You Cheat final fantasy VIIYesterday, as reported, a touch-friendly version of Final Fantasy VII was made available for sale on the App Store and iTunes. It is essentially the PC version of the game, with one difference. You can cheat.
    And it’s not a bug — Square designed it this way on purpose, and once you hear why, you probably won’t be pleased.
    We previously reported that this version of FFVII would let you turn off random monster encounters in the field whenever you felt like it, but this brought up a baffling question. If people who play the mobile version never level up, just how ...
  • Final Fantasy VII Now Playable On iPhones Surprise — today is the day the world’s most popular entry in the Final Fantasy series gets a smartphone port.
    Fundamentally, it’s the PC version of the game running on iOS hardware. It should mostly be the same experience, including the really lo-res backgrounds (because Square did not hold onto the original assets for the rendered graphics). It does have a couple of exclusive features, though: one is touch controls (obviously) and the other is the unexpected ability to shut off random encounters at any time. Final Fantasy VII will be available for Apple devices starting tonight.
    The Final Fantasy Portal app ...
  • Here’s Your Chance To Win A Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition fallout 4The Pip Boy Edition of Fallout 4 (which, true to its name, contained a real Pip Boy that became functional with an inserted smartphone) was for sale by Bethesda for an extremely limited time. The quantity wasn’t on purpose: Bethesda loves money like anybody else, and they printed literally as many Pip Boys as the factory that made them would allow. They hit the limit, which was unfortunately well below the amount in demand.
    If you missed your chance to get the Pip Boy Edition, you have another shot, though it’s entirely up to chance. The retail website ThinkGeek is currently ...
  • New Game Plus DLC For Witcher 3 Out Now witcher 3There’s been no official announcement from CD Projekt Red, but it’s out anyway: the final batch of free DLC for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which adds a New Game Plus feature to the game. Usually a New Game Plus lets you restart and replay through a game again while retaining all the experience and/or items you collected from your first playthrough. New Game Pluses are nice things to have, and more games need ’em.
    Perhaps there’s been no official announcement yet because the DLC is only out for XBox One — the Playstation 4 and PC versions have yet to ...
  • Grandia II Launches On Steam In A Week grandia IIGungHo Online Entertainment America, which now holds the rights to the Grandia series as well as every other property in the Game Arts library, announced today the release date for the Steam version of Grandia II: August 24, or next Monday.
    Also, this version of the game has been retitled “Grandia II Anniversary Edition” because it’ll turn 15 years old this year. It’s not just the name that’s new….the Anniversary Edition will also have a Japanese voice acting track option, gamepad support, and a new harder difficulty level. GungHo has many other classic JRPGs it’s sitting on, but the fans chose ...
  • Fan Project Remakes Final Fantasy 7 As 2D Brawler FFVII: ReimaginedI’m about to say something weird, but bear with me. Suppose that Final Fantasy 7 happened, but it wasn’t made by Square. Instead it was created by Capcom and released as a fast-paced 2-D fighting game.
    That’s the alternate reality some fans are creating in FFVII: Reimagined. The twist? It actually looks like it could work. The video shows a game that looks very fun to play.

    Once FFVII: Reimagined is completed, every boss fight in the game will be re-rendered as a lightning-fast battle. You can control Cloud, Tifa, or both at once in co-op. Materia and summons will still be ...
