  • The Final Fantasy 7 Remake Will Feature Different Combat The director of the upcoming Final Fantasy 7 remake, Tetsuya Nomura, spoke in an interview with Official Playstation Magazine that was published this week. Yes, there is still an Official Playstation Magazine, but only in England.
    Nomura revealed his team was looking at making “dramatic changes” to the game’s fighting style, then dialed back those words by adding, “That being said we want to clarify: We’re not going to be changing it into a shooter or something like that. We are going to be bringing dramatic changes, but we want to make sure it’s still recognizable.”
    This isn’t that surprising when you ...

Loot Crate and Bethesda have announced there will be a special Fallout 4 edition of Loot Crate delivered to the lucky few who can get one.

  • The Fallout 4 Survival Guide Will Release Alongside The Game fallout 4Fallout 4 is going to be a massive game, and it deserves a special kind of guide.
    Hence the Vault Dweller’s Survival Guide, written as if it came out of the Fallout world. It’s 400 pages long and includes detailed instructions on living, working, crafting and surviving in a post-apocalyptic wasteland with only a dog for company.
    Yes, this is technically a strategy guide, a publishing niche you would think had become obsolete, but if that’s what you do indeed think, you haven’t been to the “game” shelf at Barnes and Noble lately. Strategy guides have reinvented themselves and now target a ...
  • The Witcher 3’s Final DLC Is A New Game Plus Mode witcher 3CD Projekt Red promised fans of its most recent release, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, that the game would have 16 separate free DLC downloads eventually. They’re very close to fulfilling that promise as they’ve just announced what their sixteenth and last DLC is. While most of the content has been fairly light (a new costume, ooooo), their last offering is something of use, provided you completed the game or are close to doing so: A New Game Plus.
    The New Game Plus is something every video game that has an ending should include. It’s usually defined as the ability to ...
  • 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 ...
