  • Mod Support IS Coming to PS4 Skyrim After All modFirst bethesda announced their current console versions of Skyrim and Fallout 4 would be supporting fan mods. Then Sony said “not so fast, we aren’t quite comfortable with that” and forbade the planned feature. As of today you can mod Skyrim and Fallout’s Xbox One versions to your heart’s content, but not the PS4’s. And you can believe Microsoft has bragged about this.
    That bragging must have snapped a nerve, because Sony’s taken an about-face. Pivoting from their previous statement, Bethesda announced today Sony had changed their minds and was now allowing mods to be installed. (Well, most mods….those that use ...
  • Dragon Quest VIII On 3DS Will Carry A Different Soundtrack dragon quest VIIINintendo recently had to admit, though Square tried to keep everything about Dragon Quest VIII the same from its PS2 version, one thing is going to be different. (Please read the Roman numerals correctly: we’re talking about 8, which will be released in 2017, not 7, which just came out right now.)
    7 used MIDI music, but 8’s soundtrack was orchestral. And all those recordings took up a lot of space on the disc….space that isn’t available on a 3DS card. Nintendo is creating the English translation of Dragon Quest VIII, and they had to admit when it came down to ...
  • Could The Last Guardian Disappoint? last guardianA playable demo of The Last Guardian at TGS is being taken for a spin by reporters from the Net’s biggest gaming websites. This is the moment we’ve been waiting ten entire years for: what’s the game LIKE? Unfortunately, they’re all coming back with the same impression: The Last Guardian is frustrating.

    Neatly all of the reporters mentioned the pain of getting Trico to respond. Polygon’s Philip Kolar said. “Like a real dog, Trico often does what it wants, refusing to listen to your commands until it’s good and ready. On the one hand, there’s a clever nod to real interactions ...
  • Inside The Zero Escape Watch Problem zero escapeI know this is hard to believe, but Zero Time Dilemma is back in the news again. The game came out months ago, but there was one part of the release that took this long to process, and technically still isn’t resolved: the watch problem.
    For a limited time, a special edition of Zero Time Dilemma was offered on Amazon and Aksys Games’ website that came with a plastic replica of the watch worn by the game’s characters. Aksys had made similar offers with the previous two games, so they had experience…but for some reason, this time things went horribly wrong.
    The ...
  • Sony Introduces FFXV-Branded PS4 Slim ps4 slimAt the Tokyo Game Show this morning, Sony took the covers off a new model of the Playstation 4 Slim: a special version that has designs relating to the upcoming Final Fantasy XV. It’s not only prettier, it holds more: it’s the first PS4 Slim to come with a 1 TB hard drive instead of 550 GB
    Since we don’t always get these kinds of things, you’d be forgiven for assuming the FFXV PS4 Slim won’t be coming out in America. You’d be wrong. We ARE getting this version and everything that comes in it, but you’ll have to go to ...
  • Mod Support Dropped From PS4 Versions of Fallout 4 And Skyrim modThere’s bad news for Bethesda fans this week. The much-anticipated mod support for Skyrim and Fallout 4, scheduled to be added to the Playstation 4 platform soon, has now been cancelled. Bethesda blames Sony — apparently they roadblocked the feature and would not approve it.
    “After months of discussion with Sony, we regret to say that while we have long been ready to offer mod support on PlayStation 4, Sony has informed us they will not approve user mods the way they should work: where users can do anything they want for either Fallout 4 or Skyrim Special Edition,” Bethesda said ...
  • All of Square’s Final Fantasy Movies Are To Be Bundled Soon squareDid you notice that Square has now released THREE computer-animated Final Fantasy movies? They started with the box-office dud Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within in 2001, which is pretty much the reason they had to merge with Enix to remain solvent. Square made a safer bet by using FF VII characters in Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, released in 2005 and re-released every so often with slightly more footage.
    Most recently Square put out Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV, a prequel to the upcoming Final Fantasy XV that centered on the battle between kingdoms which sets the stage for the situation you’ll ...
  • The 3DS Version Of Dragon Quest 8 Delayed Into 2017 dragon quest 8Fans had been anticipating this announcement, but it stung nonetheless. Today during the Nintendo Direct livestream, the company responsible for creating the English version of Dragon Quest 8 for 3DS admitted the localization is going to take more time to finish. Originally scheduled for the fall of 2016, Dragon Quest 8 now has a vague 2017 release date.
    If you’re bummed out, consider this: Dragon Quest 7 is coming out for 3DS in about two weeks. That game takes an average of a hundred hours to complete, and there is additional content included this time. And you want another one so ...
  • Presenting The World of Wonder Tour Of Eos With Noctis — Final Fantasy 15 final fantasy 15There is yet another Final Fantasy 15 video in existence as of today.
    What makes this one different from the 50 other videos Square has put out by now? Noctis is narrating this one. He briefly glances through his backstory of being a sheltered prince who never got to see the world, until a street rat with a magic carpet — back up, I mean, a big fat war that made his palace uninhabitable — made it possible to see everything he’d been missing from life.

  • Persona 5’s Version of Online Co-Op persona 5This week’s issue of Famitsu revealed that Persona 5 will sport some online co-op capabilities. How does such a thing fit into a single-player JRPG? Like this….
    You can’t battle other players or tackle a dungeon in a strictly multiplayer mode. Persona 5 uses online cooperation a little differently. Let’s say you’re battling a big monster, and just when you’re about to win, the stupid guy decides to run. That’s when a friend can step in and block his exit on the map! And what if that enemy has taken one party member hostage? If you can’t save them, someone else ...
