  • Persona 5 Delayed Yet Again persona 5Remember the planned Valentine’s Day 2017 release for Atlus’s Persona 5? I hope you weren’t planning on presenting it to your sweetheart, because it’s no longer scheduled for that month. The English version has been kicked down to April 4.
    This game was originally planned for a Japanese release in 2014. It was then delayed into 2015, and then into this year, where it finally came out two months ago. Shortly before then, Atlus revealed the US street date, which it has now taken back.
    Atlus feels bad about it, though. They would like to make up for the delay any way ...
  • Presenting The Most Expensive Final Fantasy Product EVER Final Fantasy collectors, prepare to weep, for there is now a collector’s item related to the series that will cost you $469,256. Also: there’s only one of it, so get prepared to fight.
    I’m talking about the Final Fantasy XV Audi R8, which appears in the movie Final Fantasy XV: Kingsglaive and has now been made into a real car. (Actually it was a real car all along….corporate synergy and all.) This particular Audi R8 has special branding and designs relating to the new FF game. The German automaker is only producing one.
    The only way to get it is by winning ...
  • Wow: Final Fantasy XV Has 16 Different Preorder DLC Trailers final fantasy xvIn the race to satisfy their bottom line, video game companies have been going a tad overboard with preorder incentives, and Square-Enix has just pushed the envelope with Final Fantasy XV. They put up the trailers for their preorder DLC content today, and there are a Malboro-choking SIXTEEN of them.
    This, however, doesn’t mean you have to preorder FFXV sixteen times to get everything….many of these trailers show material from the same packs. The actual number of separation is more like four or five across different retailers. Which is still too much.
    For those of us who won’t be preordering this game ...
  • Release Date Confirmed For Dragon Quest 8 On 3DS dragon quest 8A few months ago we had to report that the portable version of Dragon Quest 8 had been sidelined due to the release of Dragon Quest 7 being so close to it. The move was understandable, but disappointing nonetheless.
    Since then we haven’t known when Nintendo planned to put the game out…until today. The company confirmed they would be releasing Dragon Quest 8 on 3DS January 20, 2017. Which isn’t that far off, so….good.
    It’s mostly the same game, but there is a fair amount of new content….more story, new side quests, two new characters to recruit, full voice acting, StreetPass functionality, ...
  • Zero Escape On Its Way To Playstation 4 zero escapeCool news for those of you who are looking for a way to play the entire Zero Escape trilogy without a 3DS. Aksys has revealed they plan to release ported versions of the first two titles, Nine Hours Nine Persons Nine Doors and Virtue’s Last Reward, in one package called Zero Escape: The Nonary Games. This version is coming to Playstation 4.

    In the case of 999, the game is getting a remodel. It’s been ported before (there’s an iOS version that doesn’t have any puzzle solving), but this time it might be worth a rebuy: Aksys says 999 has been ...

  • Skyrim’s Mod Support On PS4 Is A Letdown skyrim special editionIf you’re just now joining us, here’s a recap: Skyrim Special Edition was announced for consoles and the PC. Then the surprise announcement was made that the XBox One version would support mods, just like the PC version does. All heads then shifted to Sony to see how they’d react, and at first the answer was “no, no mods.”
    But after a few negotiations behind closed doors, that decision was reversed and Sony announced mods WOULD be possible on the PS4 version. And there was much rejoicing!
    Then the game came out.
    Since Skyrim’s release on Friday, players have discovered the number of ...
  • Sora’s Visiting The World Of Final Fantasy soraSora, the main character of the Kingdom Hearts series, and the various denizens of the Final Fantasy universe should know each other pretty well by now. They hang out around him a lot, selling him items and giving him advice whenever he’s between Disney worlds. But can you believe HE’S never visited THEM?
    That’ll change soon when Sora stops by in World of Final Fantasy, the superdeformed RPG that was just released for Playstation 4 and Vita. Once a free update hits early next year, you’ll gain the ability to summon Sora to fight with you in battle wherever you go. ...
  • Fix On The Way For Skyrim’s Compressed Audio skyrimThose who have been playing the newly-released Skyrim Special Edition with headphones on the PC may have noticed some sound effects seem more janky than usual. After multiple users confirmed on Reddit they had the same problem, user LasurArkinshade looked into the code and found that, for an unknown reason, the sound files in the Special Edition are heavily compressed. (The original Skyrim used no sound compression.)
    If the Special Edition is obviously far larger in size than the original, why has the sound been compressed? More bizarre still, there is no report of the Playstation 4 edition of Skyrim having ...
  • Skyrim Is Going Portable On Nintendo Switch switchNintendo revealed its newest console this morning: the Nintendo Switch. Proving the rumors true, the Switch is a combination home console and handheld that features a detachable screen, and controllers that detach from that. A lineup of previously unrevealed games was shown on various screens while the usual gang of models frolicked and pretended to have a blast. Most were expected: a new Mario, a new Splatoon, a new Mario Kart. But then there was a real twist. Unexpectedly, one of the games shown first was Skyrim.
    Yup….Skyrim has been confirmed for the Switch! And this means that for the first ...
  • Elder Scrolls Online Gets Into The Halloween Spirit halloweenElder Scrolls Online has just introduced its first holiday-themed event: The Witches Festival.
    Tamriel’s ancient autumn tradition, The Witches Festival, arrives on the 13th of Frostfall (October 13th), and so begins an annual clash of sorcery and religion. For the remainder of the month, demonologists, conjurors, lamias, warlocks, and thaumaturgists will convene in secret locations throughout the wilds of Tamriel to engage in all manner of incantations, invocations, and conjurations, and the profane creatures they create or summon may plague Tamriel for eons!
