  • In Fire Emblem Fates You’ll Be Allowed To Date….Your Brother fire emblem fatesNintendo has taken heat from a certain end of the Internet for cutting a certain feature out of Xenoblade Chronicles X: namely, a very skimpy erotic outfit for one of its characters. The character happened to be a 13-year-old girl. There were those who cried “Censorship!!” at this but, uh, I think I fully understand this one. If you’re sore about it, you’ll be happy to know a feature of Fire Emblem Fates that could be very controversial has been left in: you’ll be able to date many characters in the game, and this includes those from your own family.

  • New Behind-The-Scenes Documentary Out Now For “Pillars of Eternity” pillars of eternityYou hear a lot about crowdfunding projects that fail to meet their goals, don’t turn in a satisfactory product, or just turn out to be scams. How about a fan-funded project where, for once, everything turned out RIGHT?

That’s the story of Pillars of Eternity, the RPG from Obsidian Entertainment that now has a behind-the-scenes documentary based on it.
    In “The Road to Eternity,” ...
  • Tales Of Symphonia Coming To Steam tales of symphoniaBandai Namco has confirmed the wide release of a new PC port for one of the most beloved games in their Tales series, Tales of Symphonia.

  • Will The Final Fantasy VII Remake Have An Open World Map? final fantasy viiIt’s one of the loudest questions fans are asking. Now that we know the Final Fantasy VII Remake will be divided into chapters, are we still getting that beautiful open world to explore upon escaping Midgar, or will it be disappointingly changed into a series of linear paths?
    Today the Japanese gaming magazine Dengeki published a short question-and-answer session with the game’s director, Tetsuya Nomura and its producer, Yoshinori Kitase. The interview was translated and put online by the website Gematsu. One of the questions the magazine asked was whether we were getting an open world map or not, and Kitase ...
  • Square’s Christmas Gift: New Gameplay Footage From Kingdom Hearts 3 kingdom hearts 3This is cruel to point out, but it has actually been TEN YEARS since the last proper Kingdom Hearts game. Kingdom Hearts 2 was released for the Playstation 2 back in 2005, and fans have been left mostly dry ever since, having to sustain themselves on portable-sized spinoffs while the story spun its wheels and became a lot more convoluted in the process. In 2013 Kingdom Hearts 3 was confirmed at last, and today we have actual gameplay footage to show you. These are areas we’ve seen before, and essentially animated versions of recent screenshots we’ve gotten (we get to ...
  • Someone Built A Giant AT-AT In Fallout 4 fallout 4You know what time it is. ‘Tis the season to be oversaturated in Star Wars junk. YouTuber Ops-Specialist has created this seasonally appropriate giant Star Wars AT-AT from the Battle of Hoth, using the settlement tools in Fallout 4.
    It’s big enough to live inside. In the video below, you can watch Ops climb up a flight of stairs and take viewers on a tour of the AT-AT’s innards, which include multiple levels of bed, lamps and plant life. And according to Ops, it’s fully operational. We’ll have to take his word for it, since he never explains how, or shows ...
  • Final Fantasy 6 Is Coming To Steam, But It’s The Mobile Version final fantasy viYou’ll finally be able to play an official version of Final Fantasy VI on your PC in a few days, thanks to Steam, but it may not be the version you wanted. Square has chosen to port its mobile version of the 1994 classic, which will be rejiggered to respond to keyboard and mouse.
    Why is this a problem? Because the mobile version has remastered HD graphics. Normally this kind of thing would be what the player WANTS, but in this case, the replacement graphics are so lazily put together that it hurts the overall impression of the game. Most FF ...
  • More Information On Square’s Final Fantasy VII Remake final fantasy viiThanks to the latest issue of Famitsu Weekly, we now have more detailed information about Square-Enix’s upcoming Final Fantasy VII remake on the PS4 (or the PS5 depending on how long it takes). The most crucial piece of information was the clarification on that sentence from the press release that got every fan with an Internet connection howling with rage — the statement that suggested this game would be released in chapters, not all at once.
