  • Final Fantasy VII Gets Its Own Monopoly Board monopolyIf you haven’t been keeping up on the number of licensed properties that have been given their own versions of Monopoly, trust me: it’s a lot. And now Final Fantasy VII joins the ranks with their own special board, coming in 2017.
    The irony here is that none of the main characters shown on the box were in any sort of advantageous financial position. In fact, the Monopoly had already been established: the Shinra Corporation. How do you even play the game when it’s already been won?

    In effect, playing Final Fantasy VII with Monopoly mechanics changes the game’s story entirely. Rich ...

  • Is Bethesda Working On Elder Scrolls 6? ….No skyrimSorry to pass on disappointment to everyone who has been assuming Bethesda Games is hard at work on the sixth Elder Scrolls game, but….they’re not.

  • Skyrim Remaster Will Be “As Next Gen As Possible” skyrim remasteredTo those who’ve been assuming that the port of Skyrim to current-gen systems like the PS4 and XBox One will just contain the regular-looking game at a higher framerate, think again. Bethesda is aiming to bring Skyrim on par with current graphical standards — or at least as close as they can get.
    As Bethesda’s Pete Hines told IGN, “We haven’t gotten into the full, ‘Here’s all the things we’re doing.’ But the basic idea is, in all the ways possible we’re trying to improve it and make it as next-gen and appropriate for these consoles as possible. Performance, effects, or ...
