I am amped for the Final Fantasy XV demo, Episode Duscae. It will be great to see what the game is like now that it's finally emerging from development hell. It was important to game director Hajime Tabata to show off this piece of the game for the fans. However, it is having an impact on total game development.

Final Fantasy XV is almost upon us. Okay, maybe not - we still have no idea when it's actually going to release. But, we will be getting a demo soon and it will include some cool parts of the game to tide us over until the real deal. Unlike previous games, there's a bunch that you can do when you make camp for night, including embracing your inner cooking mamma.

Some days, it seems people get more hyped about their GamerScore and achievements than actually playing the game. While I don't really achievement hunt in general, it can be intensely satisfying to hear that dinging noise when you complete something special. Here's how to get that noise in Final Fantasy Type-0 HD. As always with these lists, stay away if you're avoiding spoilers.

Hironobu Sakaguchi is a man of legend. Gamers owe him a massive debt of gratitude for the games he's created, and he will be honoured at the Game Developers Conference as a result.

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is the ultimate success story. Starting as a horrible game, they completely relaunched it as Realm Reborn and it has received nothing but praise from critics and communities. It's currently available on PC, PS3 and PS4, but that might be expanding soon.

I used to be addicted to surveys. I loved answering all the questions, ticking the boxes. I think back in the day, I used to be a member of one of those places that would give you points for answering surveys and eventual prizes. But this survey seems a whole lot more useful, although I wonder what strange and wonderful games it will inspire.

If I could only play one JRPG franchise for the rest of time, it would probably be Final Fantasy. I've been playing these games since the very first one and I am beyond excited for FF XV. However, Square Enix is looking to hire someone and the position is getting me a bit worried.

I love JRPGs, but the translated voice actors are often horrible. You just need to play Final Fantasy X and listen to those awful voices and laughs to realize that localization isn't always a smooth process for Japanese games. Luckily, it seems the latest Final Fantasies have some excellent voice talent on board.

Final Fantasy 7? Puh-lease, who wants to be trolled with a PC port of that game onto the PlayStation 4? There are far better Final Fantasy games to port on over, instead of that over-hyped seventh instalment in the franchise. Unfortunately, the next game getting all tarted up doesn’t even rhyme with Shminal Shmantasy Date, and will instead be that one game from the series that has frightful daddy issues. Mon.

We have been starving for some Final Fantasy (or just general JRPG) loving on the new consoles for quite some time. In Q1 next year, we will get our hands on what appears to be an epic game that will make us ridiculously happy - this latest trailer shows more story and gameplay.

I’m a huge fan of the Final Fantasy series. I’ve played every single title in the main numbered series other than the PlayStation 2 and online entries. One spin on the franchise I’m interested in playing is Type-0. It’s a 2011 PSP title which is being given a HD spit and polish for the new generation of consoles. It may not stop there though.

I wasn't excited for Final Fantasy Type-0 getting a Western release. The game was presumably cool on PSP, but I didn't think putting it on PS4 would look great. In fact, the only reason I was planning on getting the game was to get my hands on the FFXV demo. However, my eyes have been opened and I was so very very wrong to not be excited.
