In Front Mission 3’s 18th battle, I’m on a naval base facing down two giant walking artillery cannons, four Gundam-like mechs, and an apache helicopter. It isn’t the most challenging tactical role-playing game from the PS1 era, but like lots of games from that era it’s prone to the occasional difficulty spike. Unlike…
Octopath Traveler is a complicated game with a lot of intricate mechanics. I’ve played many hours of it. Now it is time for me to share my knowledge with you.
Once you’re past the credits of Octopath Traveler, there’s one major hidden dungeon left to find. It’s not obvious how to get there, though, so allow us to give you a guide.
Eight people gather in a tavern, swapping stories and preparing for adventure. It’s not clear why they’re traveling together—there’s a pious cleric and a murderous dancer in this odd crew—but they’ve united nonetheless.
There’s finally a new Star Ocean game after 2016's barebones Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness. Unfortunately, Star Ocean: Anamnesis, the latest entry, free-to-play, only on smartphones, and a gacha game to boot. The first of those would be forgivable if not for the second, but as a slot machine for collecting…
The producer of the gorgeous upcoming Switch game Octopath Traveler made waves this week with a quote in which he said that mechanically it was a spiritual successor to Final Fantasy VI. Other people have made similar comparisons. But Octopath is nothing like Final Fantasy VI—it’s more like a SaGa game, with some…
One of Final Fantasy XIV’s most memorable bosses is Good King Moggle Mog, a giant demonic moogle whose Tim Burton-inspired theme song has been haunting players since the game’s earliest days. As it turns out, the king of the Moogles has an unlikely origin: one of Japan’s biggest natural disasters.
Naoki Yoshida has become an icon to Final Fantasy XIV fans. When he logs into the game, his character gets mobbed. One of the reasons for his popularity is his willingness to get candid about all of the issues his game faces.
Octopath Traveler, the Nintendo Switch exclusive from the team behind Bravely Default, will not have any DLC. Why? Because it’s already a complete game, says Square Enix.
Kingdom Hearts III was on display at E3 and our own Tim Rogers took a peek at it. He even had a chance to interview some diehard Kingdom Hearts fans about the game. The whole spectacle was enough to make you say “gawrsh!”
Another day, another bunch of E3 press conferences. Let’s talk about them!
Expectations were high for the first E3 presser from Square Enix in three years. The publisher has a lot of exciting upcoming projects that we haven’t heard much about, including Final Fantasy VII Remake, The Avengers, and Guardians of the Galaxy. Naturally, Square Enix showed absolutely none of them.
It’s the third day of E3 press conferences, and Square Enix just showed up with... well, with a pretty disappointing show.
Platinum Games has a new project. During their E3 2018 press conference today, Square Enix announced Babylon’s Fall. The reveal trailer dropped heavy lore for the setting and showed off some dark fantasy action.
It’s Monday morning, which means we’re ready to kick off E3's most packed day of press conferences. First up is Square Enix. We’ve already seen a few of its games, but what else does the Final Fantasy maker have in store for us? You can watch the press conference here or follow along with our liveblog below.
Square Enix’s e3 conference airs at 10am PT/1pm ET. I imagine we’ll see more Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Just Cause 4, and Kingdom Hearts 3.
The gang will travel to the land of Arendelle in Kingdom Hearts III, Square Enix revealed at Microsoft’s E3 2018 press conference. Yes, Frozen is coming to Kingdom Hearts. Did you expect anything less?
It’s 1:30am Eastern on a Sunday morning and Square Enix just announced Kingdom Hearts III’s release date, because why not? The long-awaited action-roleplaying game will be out on January 29, 2019, the publisher says.
In the mid-nineties, at the approach of the millennium, the creators of Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest combined their considerable talents in the hopes of creating the ultimate Japanese role-playing game. What resulted was Chrono Trigger, considered not only one of the best games of the era but also one of the…
