During a lifestream about Final Fantasy Type-0, Game Director Hajime Tabata also ended up talking about Final Fantasy XV. While he didn't drop too many details about the demo, he did raise some eyebrows from fans.

At some embargoed events, they will actually take away people's phones to ensure that they don't record what transpires. Someone obviously forgot to do that at a Final Fantasy XV demo session, leading to this leaked video.

Oh I’m turning Japanese I’m turning Japanese. Right now, the Tokyo Games Show is blazing a trail of new announcements, most of which happen to be in some sort of language that I can’t understand. Still, some info is beginning to leak out of that trade show. And it’s all good news for Final Fantasy fans today.

Do you want to be the best? The very best, like no one ever was? To catch ‘em all, without needing to drop several hundred bucks in the process? In an age long past, such an option was available to gamers. It was known as “the demo”, a slice of a game that gave players a chance to experience what was in store. Fore free. And now, the new Pokémon remakes are getting into that try it before you buy it idea.

FIFA 15 is coming later this month to the new generation of consoles and PC. For a change, the PC versions is actually going to share the same underlying engine and technology as the console versions. Yes, it’ll be using the fabled Ignite Engine for more realistic everything.

We’re edging closer and closer to another wave of virtual reality hardware. Headsets like the Oculus Rift and Sony’s Project Morpheus are supposed to enhance our gaming experiences, providing a closer, more immersive look at the game world we’re playing in. Now that doesn’t exactly have to apply exclusively to gaming. At the very least, Team Tekken knows exactly what I’m talking about.

I may be a completely rubbish driver in the real world, but when it comes to video games, I’m even more dangerous and unskilled…Wait, that doesn’t sound right. Anyway, if I’m going to be crashing constantly in a racing game, you can be damn well sure that I’ll want to do so with a vehicle that comes with a price tag that makes the Nkandla not-a-compound look like small change in comparison. And Forza Horizon 2 has plenty of those cars available.

EA is known for doing some pretty despicable things over the years. Season Passes, shoe-horned micro-transactions,  Origin and more - like trying to market Dungeon Keeper as a “free to play” game.

Aah Naruto games, truly you are the Call of Duty of annual fighting genre releases. Well clap your hands together and raise your fingers in weird poses, because you can bet your ass that little to nothing will have changed in the next release, but at least it’ll look pretty-no-jutsu.

On the surface, Hellraid has everything. A dark fantasy atmosphere. Plenty of varied monsters. A solid combat structure. Environments which have an authentic feel of dank death around the corner. And yet for some reason, the game is just lacking…something.

It seems that you can’t walk anywhere these days without some twonk in a VR getup running into you and gouging your eye out with a PS Move controller by accident, but I digress. The Oculus Rift has been hogging all the headlines as of late, but there’s a new challenger on the virtually real field. Project Morpheus is its name, and it’s a fancy piece of tech.

It’s a World Cup year which means we have a new FIFA World Cup game from EA Sports -  but as I’ve said before it is logical to be a bit wary of these games as they are usually quite poor.
