  • ESO Expansion Gates Of Oblivion Begins With Blackwood ESO Expansion Gates Of Oblivion Begins With BlackwoodWe knew a new expansion to ESO was arriving this year, but the question was….when? Thanks to today’s reveal event held by Zenimax and Bethesda, we now have an answer…how does June sound?
    That’s when Bkackwood will launch, the first chapter in ESO’s year-long Gates of Obliivion expansion. Blackwood introduces a year-long saga that will tell the tale of the villainous Daedric Prince Mehrunes Dagon, who gave Tamriel’s denizens a miserable time 800 years before the events of Elder Scrolls IV. The chapter will add at least 30 hours of playable content to ESO, and pack in all these things:

    A new ...

  • Meet Zed: Star Of Disgaea 6 Meet Zed: Star Of Disgaea 6Can the Disgaea series ever be stopped? Will it outlive us all? The sixth installment is on its way to Nintendo Switch next summer, and we found out a lot about it this week…the storyline, the gameplay and more.
    As the game opens, the Darkest Assembly is in turmoil over the threat of the God Of Destruction, who annihilates all in his path. It seems nothing can defeat him…until a small young zombie named Zed pipes up and says there is a way. Hoe does such a lowly zombie know this, they scoff in his face? Zed says he knows how ...
  • SaGa Frontier Charts A New Frontier SaGa Frontier Charts A New FrontierDo you remember SaGa Frontier? Does Square remember the game? It would appear they suddenly recall making it…a remaster of the Playstation RPG is now in the works, due out next summer for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC and mobile devices.
    We’re pleased with what we’re hearing about this one. Unlike Square’s previous reissues, they’re actually going back and adding content that was deleted due to time and/or budget. Fuse will be playable in this version, and there will be events and cutscenes no one’s ever seen before. Plus an HD polish for the backgrounds and sprites (about time too; Square ...
  • NEO: The World Ends With You Is Coming NEO: The World Ends With You Is ComingRemember The World Ends With You for the Nintendo DS? The 2007 cult hit has received renewed attention from Square recently, including an anime adaption now in production and a full-on remake for the Switch, but is there now more on the way?
    Square has announced NEO: The World Ends With You, a follow-up for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. The game’s new main character, Rindo, will play the same role as Neku from the original: sucked into the Reaper’s Game, he’ll be given seven days to fight for his life on the streets of Shibuya.
    While this could be a sequel, ...
  • A Peek At The World Of Bravely Default II A Peek At The World Of Bravely Default IIWhat could be better than Bravely Default, the hit RPG that took the 3DS by storm? How about the sequel, due out on Switch in just under four months?
    Square has released new screenshots, artwork and character descriptions for Bravely Default II. It takes place in a completely different setting from the original Bravely Default (or Bravely Second, which was apparently not a proper sequel), but the battle mechanics will remain mostly the same. You amass Brave Points to use on the battle screen. Selecting “Brave” lets you spend these points to use multiple actions in one turn, while selecting “Defend” ...
  • Bug Fables Adds Free New Content With Update 1.1 Bug Fables Adds Free New Content With Update 1.1Do you enjoy the Paper Mario series? Then why haven’t you tried Bug Fables? (If you have, disregard that question.) It’s got everything you love from Paper Mario and then some: witty dialogue, a charmingly flat art style, lots of items to collect and use in battle, and an engaging battle system.
    This week Bug Fables was updated to version 1.1, but this is more than just a typical patch. Those who own Bug Fables on all systems will receive free content. Players will now find three new quests to complete in the game, as well as new bosses, improved sprinting, ...
  • Dragon Quest XI S Demo Now Available Dragon Quest XI S Demo Now AvailableFirst there was Dragon Quest XI….a fine game, but with a lacking soundtrack? Then there was Dragon Quest XI S…an update with additional features including a refined, fully orchestrated soundtrack…but only on Switch? It won’t remain exclusive for long, however…the S version is coming to PS4, XBox One and PC on December 4.
    As on Switch, all the issues have been fixed in this version. And believe it or not, you can start playing it today. Just download the demo, which Square Enix made available this week. It’s a sizable sucker: Square claims it contains the first TEN HOURS of the ...
  • Microsoft Purchases Bethesda For $7.5 Billion Microsoft Purchases Bethesda For $7.5 BillionIs what we’ve been hearing true? Is Elder Scrolls — and Doom, and Fallout, and everything else falling under the Bethesda umbrella — now property of Microsoft? And to everyone who was complaining that XBox doesn’t have enough exclusives — are you happy now?
    Yes, it really happened — Microsoft outright bought ZeniMax Media, Bethesda’s parent company, for a figure only Microsoft could wield — $7.5 billion. The buyout covers everything Bethesda owns and is now the largest game-related purchase their new owners have ever made (though we’re sure they’ll find a way to top it before long).
    “With the addition of ...
  • Final Fantasy 16 Officially Announced With First Trailer Final Fantasy 16 Officially Announced With First TrailerWhat number comes after 15? And why does it take Square Enix so long to count? The last mainline Final Fantasy game, the fifteenth in the series, was released four years ago and until now, there wasn’t a peep from the company about what would come next. September 16, the day of Sony’s most recent Playstation 5 presentation, marks the day Square peeped.
    This first-ever footage makes one thing clear: the series is finally going back to its roots, folks. We’ve got talk of crystals, sightings of Malboros, warking Chocobos, and summons, summons, SUMMONS! Gigantic spell-slinging beasts take up half the ...
  • Elder Scrolls Online Director Discusses Greymoor Launch Elder Scrolls Online Director Discusses Greymoor LaunchHow as the launch of was Greymoor? Did it have a lot of bugs at launch?
    The highly anticipated release of ESO Greymoor came to PC and is headed to consoles soon. Which is a good thing because the PC launch of the game had some bumps along the way. It’s normal for titles to launch with glitches and the creative team for Elder Scrolls Online was on top of addressing them.
    In fact, the director of Elder Scrolls Online had to go and make a statement on how things had to be shut down almost immediately due to EVERYONE basically having ...
