  • New Dragon Quest 11 Trailers: Confirmed For PS4, 3DS And Switch dragon quest 11Square-Enix has ripped the curtain off the next Dragon Quest game, which will be the first in the main series since Dragon Quest 8 to appear on a non-Nintendo console. Yup, #9 and #10 have been Wii, Wii U and 3DS exclusives. Nine was recently localized and sold in the US, but there are no plans to create an English version of DQ 10, since all things branded “Wii” are dead. (DQ 10 is bring ported to the Switch now; we’ll see if that changes anything.)
    At Jump Festa, a Japanese expo of anime and manga, Square showed off two videos ...
  • Confirmed North American Release For Valkyria Revolution valkyria revolutionA few months ago we told you about a new effort by Sega to bring back the cult strategy series Valkyria Chronicles. The first game came out on the PS3 and two sequels were released for the PSP (one of them did not make it Stateside due to low sales, sadly). Fans figured that was the end until this year, when Sega put out a remastered Valkyria Chronicles on PS4 (with a Steelbook case!) and even announced a new Valkyria series.
    Titled Valkyria Revolution, it’s not going to be the same as the first three. Sega says it’s more of a ...
  • Skyblivion: Oblivion In Skyrim! skyblivionWhat do you get when the worlds of Skyrim and Oblivion combine? Skyblivion, that’s what. A group of modders known as the TES Renewal Project have been working on building the previous Elder Scrolls worlds into Skyrim to create one large super-world spanning the entire Elder Scrolls series. It’s not the kind of task that can be completed overnight, but as their latest video proves, they’ve been making good progress.

    To end this year on a high note I wanted to show you all how far the Skyblivion project has come during its development cycle, we still have allot of work ...
  • Final Fantasy XV Gets A “Story Patch” final fantasy xvMost games these days get patched post-release, especially the AAA expensive ones. It’s no shock that Final Fantasy XV is getting an update….the surprising part is that Square is tweaking the storyline with it. Here are the words of Director Hajime Tabata:
    We want you to enjoy Final Fantasy XV for a long time to come. We have been listening to your ideas on how to make the game experience even better, and so in addition to the previously announced content, we’ll be providing free updates to the game throughout the coming year.
    Our early plans are to enrich certain aspects of ...
  • Last Chance to Enter the The Elder Scrolls Online Trip of a Lifetime Giveaway! Bethesda Softworks’ amazing massively multiplayer online role-playing game The Elder Scrolls online recently received a free, huge update in the form of One Tamriel, which is Update 12 for the game. Launching on all platforms, Update 12: One Tamriel, offers players more freedom to explore the in-game world of Tamriel than ever before.
    But that’s not all. October also saw the launch of Elder Scrolls Online’s first major holiday event called the Witches Festival, which ran from October 13 through November 1, just in time for the Halloween season. For the Witches Festival, the dead rose from their graves and spirits ...
  • The Last Guardian’s Got Framerate Issues the last guardianAfter a wait of nearly ten years and two consoles, Team Ico’s The Last Guardian is finally out to purchase and enjoy…..but that doesn’t mean the work is over. Some players are finding the new game comes with a lot of framerate issues, especially on the original PS4.
    The website Digital Foundry created their own test by playing the game on the PS4 and on the PS4 Pro. The Last Guardian even stuttered on the Pro, dipping to around 20 FPS when rendered in 4K. On the 1080p setting there wasn’t much issue….but on the original machine the game fared even ...
  • Big New Look At Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom ni no kuni IINi No Kuni began as a DS game released only in Japan. A heavily upgraded version was created for the PS3 that came as close to playing a Studio Ghibli movie as possible — in fact, Ghibli themselves animated the cutscenes. That game is regarded as a cult classic, but it never sold well enough to make a sequel a guarantee.
    Thankfully, Level 5 felt otherwise (that, and they’re so fat off the profits from Yo-Kai Watch they can bankroll whatever they want now). Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom was announced last year during E3 2015. Today during the Playstation ...
  • Here’s When Stardew Valley Arrives On Consoles Stardew Valley, the indie sensation from earlier this year, finally has a release date for its long-overdue console debut. The game will be available on Playstation 4 December 13, and on XBox One December 14.
    What about the Wii U version? Uhh, what Wii U version? Ha ha, they never mentioned anything about a……
    Okay, they did, but releasing anything for the Wii U at this point doesn’t feel wise. Instead creator Eric Barone says he’s making the switch to Switch. “Looking at Wii U and the current gaming landscape, we made the difficult choice to shift our development efforts to creating ...
  • What’s Next For Square? Will There Be A Final Fantasy X-3? final fantasy 15On the eve of the latest Final Fantasy chapter finally being completed, it’s time to look into the future. Shinji Hashimoto, executive producer at Square-Enix, answered fan questions about possible future games earlier this month at Lucca Comics & Games 2016. This is an event in Japan, but the answers were translated by Siliconera.
    There have been rumors of a Final Fantasy X-3 in the works, sparked by the release of a radio drama that took place after the events of X-2. Hashimoto said that the Final Fantasy X and X-2 Remastered Edition sold well enough that they would consider it, ...
  • Final Fantasy XV: The Reviews Are In final fantasy xvAfter an unprecedented ten-year wait, Square-Enix’s Final Fantasy XV will be available for all Americans to play tomorrow. Usually when fans have to wait this long for a product, the end result is a letdown because nothing can match up to the overhyped anticipation. We’ll know what the public consensus is in a few days, but for now, the critics have had their say — and they love it.
    Polygon’s Philip Kollar felt the game was flawed, but its strengths far outshone those imperfections. “Final Fantasy XV can be baffling in some of its questionable choices, but across the board, it ...
