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.

Wow I loved Sleeping Dogs. It was a game I only played way after release, but it was a whole bunch of fun. It reminded me of Donny Brasco, in a much more interesting and unique setting. If you still haven't played it, now is the best time - you can grab the Definitive Edition. Just look at how gorgeous and compelling the game is now.

You know what the world needs? Not another MOBA! The genre is slowly but surely being saturated by games from just about everybody. The latest to hop on the train is Square Enix – they are working on their own entry into the market too.

Who doesn't know Where's Wally? If you ever scanned over any of his books as a kid, you’d know that he’s not always so easy to find. The striped, spectacled fellow likes to hide away in all sorts of incredibly busy images, making life difficult for eyes everywhere. Think you’re a master?

By now you’ve heard me wax lyrical both on and off about my love for Sleeping Dogs. Sure, it may have been rough in some places, but it was damn satisfying in many, many other areas as well. I dig the arcade style driving, the gunplay was spot-on and the combat may have been lifted from Arkham Asylum, but it was improved upon tremendously. The game is getting another shot later this year at glory. And sweet pork buns, does it look pretty.

Square Enix really seem to be in love with the Master Race lately. Just yesterday I told you that Final Fantasy IV arrived on Steam, reaching a new audience who (somehow) may not have had a chance to play that particular story yet. Well, don’t let me stop the train from rolling. The much more recent series, Final Fantasy XIII (the full trilogy), will be landing on Steam soon too.

Final Fantasy IV has been around since way back in 1991. it’s gone through loads of re-releases since then, and even had its very own remake. All of those versions have been on everything from the PlayStation 1 through to the Nintendo DS and even iOS. Absent from all of that though was a PC version. That’s just changed, as the game has finally arrived on Steam.

I know it's still a while away with a demo only coming next year, but Final Fantasy XV is coming. After silence from Sony about the beloved JRPG franchise at E3 and Gamescom, they've finally revealed some new stuff at the Tokyo Games Show. This includes a new trailer, as well as some details about who is running the show.

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.

The PlayStation 4 has done gangbuster numbers around most of the world since it launched. One place where it’s struggling? Japan, surprisingly. The PlayStation 4 doesn’t exactly have a home field advantage, with sales being lacklustre so far. One game that could determine the future of the PlayStation 4 however, is Final Fantasy XV.

Unlike the rest of the gaming world, Square Enix loves it when Lightning Returns. No game is safe, it seems, as she will be returning to Eorzea via special events in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.

Final Fantasy XIV had a shoddy start a few years ago in 2010. It was received poorly by loads of people, forcing the game to be pretty much a failure. A Realm Reborn, the redesigned and fixed version of the original, was launched in 2013. It did a whole lot better.

It’s just back and forth, back and forth with these types of things, isn’t it? Nearly a full 24 hours ago, Microsoft sent the internet into a frenzy by announcing that Rise of the Tomb Raider would release exclusively on Xbox next year. But as we’ve come to realise lately, there are many ways to dance around the facts.
