Final Fantasy Type-0 HD is releasing in mid-March on PS4 and Xbox One. While it's promising to be a new, darker kind of Final Fantasy, there are still some familiar elements to it. Some new screenshots might just make you feel a bit more comfortable with the game.

DONTNOD are working on their episodic game, Life is Strange. One of my favorite parts of their previous game, Remember Me, was the ability to remix memories. Now we can rewind time, and it might be the most interesting mechanic, if it's done right.

Ever since we saw that trailer with the car, plenty of FFXV memes were spawned and we all started laughing at the idea of the game as a road trip. But that's all done on purpose; FF XV is a fantasy based on reality, which includes realistic ways of getting around.

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.

News about Final Fantasy XV seems to be coming fast and loose these days. Director Hajime Tabata is much more candid about what's going on, making fans happy to know that progress is continuing as compared to the prolonged silence on the matter we had for years. Here is some more news about the upcoming demo, and the overall size of the game.

Like it or not, the equal and fair representation of women in gaming is an issue, and one that is unlikely to go away anytime soon. Some may argue that developers aren't trying enough to shift this tide, but it seems that publishers are the wall that they keep running into. Or, at least, it’s the reason Life is Strange was nearly never made.

I’ll be honest; I haven’t really paid much attention to Dontnod Entertainment’s new episodic adventure title, Life is Strange. It’s a massive departure from the studio’s previous work on Remember Me, cashing on the buzz surrounding adventure titles and their broken up nature. It didn’t really catch my eye – until I watched this latest trailer for the first episode.

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.

I love Final Fantasy VII. It was the first game I ever played in the franchise, introducing me to a world of levelling, magic, and characters with ridiculous block limbs and unrealistic spikey hair. It’s still my favourite to this day, and I’ve played it many, MANY times since. One reason I love the Final Fantasy franchise in general though is because of the vast tales they spin, and yes, I loved the story that VII told. Imaging experiencing it all as a novel…

Final Fantasy Type-0 is coming! What is it exactly? I have no clue to be honest – another non-numbered JRPG title in the popular franchise I guess. To boost sales (I don’t see why they would do this otherwise), Square Enix have marketed Type-0 as having the demo for the highly anticipated Final Fantasy XV included. It’s a smart move, and I’m convinced it will make the game fly off shelves, even if those buying aren’t really that interested in it. Turns out that’s the only way to get the demo, and it’ll be available in limited quantities.

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.

Final Fantasy VII, one of the most beloved all all games associated with the PlayStation brand, is finally coming to the PlayStation 4. For years, fans have begged and begged for a remake or remaster of the game, and at Sony’s PlayStation experience event this weekend, Square announced that the game would be headed to the PS4. Before you get excited, let me first crush your spirit; it won’t be remastered at all.

Unless you've been living under a rock, you've seen the new Star Wars teaser trailer. And probably all the Marvel movies, too. These universes are ridiculously popular, and people have been wondering about what crossovers Disney might present to us. Kingdom Hearts might just be the first place we see it, and it makes the most sense.
