  • Atlus Announces Legend of Legacy Today Atlus revealed an English translation for a new JRPG titled “Legend of Legacy” (that title makes no sense in Japanese either). It’ll be a turn-based exploration game that be played seven different ways, as you can select anybody in the game’s cast to be your main character.

    The great news is that a Murderers Row of Japanese JRPG talent was involved in the creation of this game. The writer behing Chrono Trigger, the designers and illustrators behind the SaGa series and, most importantly, Masataka Matsuura. That’s the guy who wrote 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors and its sequel. There ...

  • The Dominant Platform For Witcher 3 Isn’t Steam CD Projekt Red, publishers of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, revealed today the dominant form of commerce people are using to obtain their game. Despite Steam being the digital distribution hub preferred by the majority of people, somehow this highly-anticipated, extremely hyped game managed to sell more copies on GOG.com.
    Projekt Red said that over 690,000 people play the game through GOG, which is a significant chunk of the 4 million copies (digital and physical) that Witcher 3 has sold since its release. In fact, this number is so great that it edges out all other digital distribution platforms combined.
    Why? When ...
  • This Elder Scrolls Themed Basement Cost $50,000 To Make DC Comics artist Tyler Kirkham lives in Kaysville, Utah. He likes comics, obviously, but he LOVES the Elder Scrolls series. So much so that he would spend $50,000 of his own money to have his basement remodeled into a scene right out of the series itself.
    To get the look just perfect, Tyler’s finished new basement now features distressed stone walls, various helmets and horns on the walls, a bathroom with a waterfall and rock face covered in vines, crossbows and a sparring arena. And get this….a secret door activated by pulling a specific book from the bookshelf. Gotta have that!
    Despite ...
  • Patch That Witcher! New Patch Released For Witcher 3 witcher 3When a problem comes along, you must patch it. CD Projekt Red has released the latest patch resolving issues and bugs in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, this time in a more timely manner: PC and Playstation 4 users will get their patch simultaneously, while XBox One users will get one very soon.
    Highlights this time? One of Projekt Red’s notes says the patch “Deploys the Bovine Defense Force Initiative.” This is referring to the fact that people had figured out how to get infinite cash by killing cows. This will happen no longer. The patch will also make the tiny ...
  • The Final Fantasy XV Demo Will Be Updated Next Week As promised, Square-Enix broadcasted its second Active Time Report livestream conference early this morning, starring Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata and marketing manager Akio Ofuj.
    The stream took over an hour, but the important facts can be summed up in about a minute. The most important one is that the new version of the Final Fantasy XV demo will arrive next week, and contain many improvements based on the feedback the team asked for earlier this year.
    There’s also been a change in the game’s cast. Originally Noctis fought alongside a woman named Stella, but the producers apparently had problems figuring ...
  • Fallout 4 Confirmed, Trailer Released Developer Bethesda Games has officially revealed the next game in the Fallout series is very close to completion, and has released the first trailer for the game.
    Watch as Dogmeat, the canine who has made appearances in every Fallout released so far, takes you through the many rooms of a ruined house, every so often flashing back to simpler times. Does this mean you get a dog in the game? Will it be Dogmeat? Maybe if you get hungry. Also, if the use of Ron Perlman in this trailer is any indication, he’ll return as the narrator (maybe).
    How long has it ...
  • Dragon Quest Heroes Comes To America October 13 Square-Enix announced today that Dragon Quest Heroes, its DQ spinoff title featuring most of the cast from the past ten games in the series, WILL see shelf space in American stores. However, for its Stateside release, the game will be titled Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below to keep in accordance with the law that all Square-Enix games must have ridiculous and embarrassing titles.
    Dragon Quest Heroes has more in common with Dynasty Warriors than a traditional Dragon Quest game. Similar to last year’s Hyrule Warriors, which used various Zelda characters in a hack and slash ...
  • Yes, America Will Get Bravely Second Few JRPGs in recent memory have been fought over like the 3DS’s Bravely Default (Flying Fairy). This game became well-known in JRPG fan circles before it was localized as the only game Square-Enix had released in the last five years that came close to the output of their golden age. People demanded it for a long time, but Square remained apathetic to American handhelds, and eventually it had been years since its Japanese release and the possibility looked to be long gone.
    Then out of nowhere Nintendo localized the game themselves and released it in 2014. The egg was on Square’s ...
  • Witcher 3 Gets Its First Patch For those who’ve run into annoying glitches in their new Witcher game, fear not. CD Projekt Red has released its first patch for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The patch is now available on PS4, XBox One and PC.
    Unfortunately there don’t seem to be any patch notes for the XBox One version, so we can’t confirm any of the most important problems that need fixing have been fixed — chief among them the deadly save-corrupting bug that was discovered last week. Projekt Red is aware of the bug, but if the patch fixes it, they haven’t told us.
    What the XBox ...
  • Everything You Know About “Final Fantasy” Is Wrong The title, at least. You may have heard Square was deep in financial trouble when they started developing the original Final Fantasy game, and named it “Final Fantasy” because they figured it would be the last game the company would make before going out of business.
    Today Hironobu Sakaguchi, creator of the series way back when, told Weekly Famitsu the story is false.
    The naming process for the original game began with the motive of looking for a name that could be abbreviated to “FF,” or “efu efu” which Sakaguchi says sounds good in Japan (no comment from me). Their first decision ...
