  • Chrono Trigger Would Translate Pretty Well To 3D Chrono Trigger Would Translate Pretty Well To 3DRecreating some 16-bit games with modern graphics might result in something being lost in the translation. That’s not the case with Chrono Trigger, which adapts pretty well. This 3D model of the Millennial Fair from the beginning of the game feels and looks exactly the same, only in three dimensions.

    The Millennial Fair was recreated by 3D modeler Michael Barrington using the Unreal 4 Engine. He says the process took about a month to complete, but it’s pixel perfect…..er, polygon perfect.
    This is far from the first fan recreation of something from the beloved RPG — some attempts have been more elaborate ...
  • Shigesato Itoi Will Never Ever Ever Make Mother 4, Ever Shigesato Itoi Will Never Ever Ever Make Mother 4, EverIn this business, we’re used to any brand with even the slightest cultural following getting sequel after sequel. If the latest game is bad, who cares? We’ll just put all our hopes on the game that comes after it. Movies and TV shows don’t work this way; only video games do.
    Earthbound, however, was not your average video game series. It was the vision of one man, Shigesato Itoi, who had already become famous for his writing before Nintendo asked him to make a game. Itoi had just three Earthbound games in mind, and that is all he ever wants to ...
  • Odin Sphere Being Ported — To NES Odin Sphere Being Ported -- To NESThe original Odin Sphere was one of the highlights of the Playstation 2 library — a sidescrolling action-RPG with beautiful handpainted art, not to mention sheep that grew on trees. Atlus is currently working on an HD version of the classic game, for digital release on Playstation 4, Playstation 3 and PS Vita. But now there’s an extra port in the works: Odin Sphere for 8-bit systems.
    As a publicity stunt, Atlus launched a Twitter campaign to spread word of the remaster — if they received 28,888 tweets, they would begin work on a retro version of the game with chiptunes, ...
  • Valkyria: Azure Revolution Update — First Video Footage Valkyria: Azure Revolution Update -- First Video FootageIt couldn’t be more official now: Sega is bringing back the Valkyria Chronicles series.
    The title has been confirmed, development has been confirmed, and now we have our first teaser trailer hinting at the characters and story. These characters were described with a bit more detail in the Famitsu article from earlier in the week. It’s also been stated by Sega that this game and any that follow it will be known as the “Revolution” series, while parts one through three will be known as the “Chronicles” series. This implies the new game will launch an all-new story.
    The new Valkyria game ...
  • Dragon Quest Heroes, Lightning Returns Coming To Steam Next Month Dragon Quest Heroes, Lightning Returns Coming To Steam Next MonthLast week Square let the cat slime out of the bag regarding a PC port of Dragon Quest Heroes. Today Square confirmed that it is indeed true: you’ll be able to buy a PC version next month, and it won’t be alone. Dragon Quest Heroes came out in Japan last year and on the US Playstation 4 last month.
    What Steam managed to keep a lid on was the additional existence of another recent Square game now ready for PCs: Lightning Returns, the third Final Fantasy XIII game originally released for PS3. Critical and fan response to this sequel wasn’t quite ...
  • Valkyria Chronicles 4 Update: Famitsu Reveals Characters And Plot Valkyria Chronicles 4 Update: Famitsu Reveals Characters And PlotYesterday we reported a new Valkyria Chronicles was in the works from Sega. At the time only the game’s existence had been revealed, with the promise that more information would follow in Weekly Famitsu magazine. The VC issue has now been released, and the information in the issue was reported by My Game News Flash.
    First off, you can forget “Valkyria of the Blue Revolution” because the actual English title will be Valkyria: Azure Revolution, which is saying the same name with fewer words. The game is being handled by Media Vision, who put together Valkyria Chronicles III. It looks to ...
  • The Rumors Are True: Valkyria Chronicles Getting PS4 Sequel The Rumors Are True: Valkyria Chronicles Getting PS4 SequelEarlier this year Sega filed trademarks both in Japan and the US for a video game called “Valkyria of the Blue Revolution.” It wasn’t known at the time if the use of the word “Valkyria” indicated a new Valkyria Chronicles game, but now it’s been confirmed as the name of one.
    Not only is there a new game coming, but an HD remaster of the original Valkyria Chronicles is also coming to Playstation 4. This remaster was originally released for the PS3 and found its way to Steam last year.
    But the new game is what everyone’s psyched about. And unfortunately we ...
  • Disgaea Is Coming To PC, Dood Disgaea Is Coming To PC, DoodYou’ve been able to play games from the Disgaea series on nearly every platform since the whole thing started on the Playstation 2, with the exception of the PC. Who knows why, but NIS has waited until now to take the first step in catching up with the new Disgaea PC, coming to Steam.
    Disgaea PC will be a remastered version of the original game. We can’t confirm any graphics upgrades, since there are no screenshots yet, but we do know achievements and badges have been added, and that the user interface will be upgraded. Disgaea PC will arrive on Steam ...
  • Fallout 4 Players Discover Game-Crashing Bug Fallout 4 Players Discover Game-Crashing BugSeveral players of Fallout 4 have reported the existence of a game-crashing bug on Bethesda’s forums. The bug is activated by accepting a settlement quest that requires players to head to Monsignor Plaza. At that point, if you go there, the game will crash. This bug has been reported in all versions of the game, and on the PC version, doing things like starting a new game doesn’t seem to fix the problem — once you’ve accepted the quest, you can never go to the Monsignor Plaza area again, making game completion impossible.
    While many bugs have been reported in the ...
  • Fallout 4 Contains A Room That Gives You Every Item Fallout 4 Contains A Room That Gives You Every ItemIf you want to find every item in Fallout 4, you’ve got a lot of work ahead of you…..then again, maybe not. A secret area has just been discovered in the world that contains everything. This video from the YouTube channel Tyrannicon gives you visuals:

    To access the room, type in “COC QASMOKE” into the console commands. To access the console commands you’ll need the PC version of the game (so sorry, console users, even though this room is in the game code, you can’t visit it on the PS4 or XBox One). Once you get in, you’ll have access to ...
