  • An Introduction To The World Of Outriders An Introduction To The World Of OutridersWhat happened to the planet Enoch while you were in stasis? And what will you find once you awaken? That’s the question at the center of Outriders, the new loot shooter from Square Enix that releases today.
    30 years from the start of the game, mankind arrived on the planet and set up a network of colonies — and wound up awakening some kind of biological defense mechanism they termed The Anomaly. The planet’s life forms changed into horrific monsters, the settlements were destroyed and thousands lost their lives…except for your character and a few others, who were asleep in pods ...
  • Endwalker Revealed: Final Fantasy 14’s Next Expansion Arrives This Fall Endwalker Revealed: Final Fantasy 14's Next Expansion Arrives This FallWhat’s coming next in the world of Final Fantasy 14? Square gave us the answer today….what will be added once the new Endwalker expansion hits?
    First off, yes, the level cap is being raised. It will change from 80 to 90. Second, a new healer job will be added to the game. Named Sage, it requires a special type of weapon called a Noulith that has the ability to cast a shield around allies, as well as shoot energy blasts. Not entirely defenseless, but best used in a healer position alongside a Scholar or Astrologian (a job that’s being tweaked to ...
  • 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:

  • 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 ...
