Gamescom 2014 – Rise of the Tomb Raider exclusive to Xbox

The Tomb Raider reboot from last year was a pretty solid game and earlier this year we found out that a sequel was in the works. What we didn’t know was that Rise of the Tomb Raider is in fact a Xbox exclusive.

Square Enix to fix Remember Me by copying Walking Dead?

I enjoyed Remember Me. It was an interesting premise with some cool aspects of gameplay that was ultimately flawed and disappointing. However, it really could have been awesome, and Square Enix might just be launching a new IP that will do what Remember Me should have. But are they doing the right thing?

Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition releases this October

Looks like Definitive is the new HD remaster of this generation after all. Fresh off of the downright sexy graphics of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, comes another Square Enix game that is getting higher definition kung-fu to the face in October.

Final Fantasy going Bravely Default?

Bravely Default was certainly that - courageously returning to the default approach JRPGs should take. It was a whole bunch of fun and is yet another reason people should have a 3DS. Now, its sales are making Square Enix sit up and listen.

Humble Bundle teams up with Square Enix

Oh backlog, how big you’ve gotten over the years! What are they feeding you? Money in absurdly small quantities? There there, you’re not done growing yet. This Square Enix Humble Bundle has all the vitamins and minerals you need!

Collectibles Corner – Prepare for Titanfall and Batman

Welcome to our third new video feature! Today, I’m talking action figures. I’m talking collectables. I’m talking stuff so awesome, you’ll probably never ever own so you might as well give up and rather paint a hobo to look like a highly sought-after piece of merch instead. I’m talking Collectibles Corner, which is all about thrusting your hard-earned cash at your screen.

Murdered: Soul suspect review – Unchained Malady

There’s nothing like a good murder mystery. Murdered: Soul Suspect is nothing like a good murder mystery. A good one keeps its audience in rapt engagement; with armchair detectives narrowing the list of suspects in their heads right up until the killer’s identity is revealed at the end. For a while, I was caught up in its fiction and its trope-filled depiction of life as a ghost on Salem’s streets – but by the end I found I just didn’t care. I didn’t care about its characters, I didn’t care about the protagonist’s quest for redemption, and I didn’t care who the killer was.

TheatRhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call collector’s edition tunes up

Say what you like about Final Fantasy, but on the audio side of things, the franchise has always hit some high notes. And quite a few others as well. TheatRhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call is the next game in that musical series that pays tribute to some classic tunes. And it has a collector’s edition that is packed with great tunes.

Murdered: Soul Suspect Review Round-Up

Geoff dropped a ton of paperwork on my desk, while sporting a facial expression that showed that he was visibly upset over my handling of the Revengeance killings. It seems that another massacre had taken place, with the victim being Murdered: Soul Suspect. Somebody was going to pay for this. And it would most likely be a recommended retail price of R599…

Murdered: Soul Suspect 101

Murdered: Soul Suspect has been something we;’ve been keeping an eye on since seeing it at one or other trade show a few years ago. It’s the sort of game that a studio and publisher with no balls would pass right up on for being different. Here’s a brand new trailer for the game, telling you everything you need to know about the game, plus probably a little you didn’t . 

No FFXV this year?

Recently, I saw someone compare the number of Final Fantasy games (and spin offs) to other annually released titles. Of course, I don't think they were aware how long Final Fantasy has been going, or how long avid fans need to wait between games. Now, it seems we have to wait even longer.

Final Fantasy III is coming to Steam

What’s old is new again. Out of all the Final Fantasies, Final Fantasy III is most likely the one game that I’m least qualified to talk about, having never played it. Still, provided that I can ignore that dusty emulator folder on my PC, I’ll be getting a chance to do so when the game hits Steam later this year.

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Review – A Phoenix Rises

Having played FFXIV: A Realm Reborn in Beta on the PS3, I wasn't really too sure what to expect on the new generation console. Would it be the same thing, just made a bit more pretty? Or would it make a decent game into a fantastic experience? Square Enix has made an excellent contribution to the MMORPG genre, perhaps the best MMO that I've played to date. Most of their awful UI and account management issues seem to be resolved on the new console, which means I could focus on playing the game instead of the chore of its admin.

Track the Bell Killer in Murdered: Soul Suspect

New Final Fantasy XV details emerge from Japan

Final Fantasy XIII was quite a divisive entry in the franchise. The Marmite of JRPGs, fans either loved or hated it. Now details are coming out on Final Fantasy XV, and this may just be the game that fans have been waiting for.
