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.

Sony sells off Square Enix stock

Despite achieving fantastic sales figures for the PS4, Sony has been struggling as a corporation. They've been taking all kinds of drastic steps to save the company, the latest of which is to sell off shares to bring in some extra cash.

Drakengard 3 collector’s edition confirmed for Europe

It might not have the biggest following around, but Drakenguard certainly does have one of the more dedicated groups of fans in gaming. A third game arrives later this year, and of course, it’ll have a shiny special edition.

Square Enix wants to focus on core gamers and “heavy JRPGs” again

Over the last couple of years there’s been an idea in the gaming development industry, amongst the bigger players, that a game needs to hit as many checkpoints as possible in order to appeal to the widest audience. Sometimes that works. Most times, it fails. And that’s something that Square Enix has realised, as they shift focus in their gaming department.

One more thing: Murdered: Soul Suspect gets a new trailer, concept art and limited edition

It was a cold night in a hot town. Geoff peered at me through the window of my office, which was weird because I was on the fifth floor. He told me of a game that needed some work done on it, as I sipped from my Jem and the Holograms vodka glass and felt truly outrageous. A game by the name of Murdered: Soul Suspect, which was going to be available in limited edition stock…

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster Review Round-up

I remember the day that I first saw Final Fantasy X. It looked good! This was in the day of bulky 480p TV screens, but hell, the game looked stunning back then. And then Auron spoke, which was something that I had never seen in a Final Fantasy game. Years later, it’s still a great game, and possibly even better with an HD sheen to it. Here’s what the critics have to say.
