Game Debate to the Death! Favorite Final Fantasy game?

In last week's poll I asked everyone to pick their favorite Uncharted game out of the three main console releases from Naughty Dog. Over 1,200 of you voted and here are the results: (78.17%) Uncharted 2: Among Thieves: 974 v...

Cactuar with a mustache & a bunch of Theatrhythm videos

Theatrhythm was the first 3DS game I bought. I'm super excited for Curtain Call's 200 songs and whatever other additions it has. It's coming out in Japan in April. Hopefully we don't have to wait to much longer, or it's curtains for Square Enix.

DOOM 4 beta, Yokai Watch & Final Fantasy on PC photo
DOOM 4 beta, Yokai Watch & Final Fantasy on PC
by Max Scoville

Hey everybody, I’m back from Japan! And here’s your quasi-timely news update for the first two thirds of this week. Irrational Games closed, pre-ordering Wolfenstein: The New Order gets you a beta for the new and technically unannounced DOOM game. Square Enix has trademarked “Shinra Company,” there’s a possibility of new Final Fantasy games on PC in the future, and in the meantime, Final Fantasies VII, VIII, and XIV are currently on sale.

Level 5 is getting me all hot and bothered by teasing a western release of Yokai Watch, which is selling like adorable ghostcakes in Japan. PC and PS4 owners will get Zombie Studios’ Daylight in April, and next month sees the release of Towerfall Ascension, the expanded version of the former Ouya exclusive.

The 2014 Game Developers Conference is coming next month, and we're already hearing of some pretty good panels that we'd like to attend. One on my list is the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn panel, called "Behind the Realm ...

We could see more Final Fantasy games on PC in the future

In case you haven't noticed, not a whole lot of Final Fantasy games are on the PC at the moment, even in port form years later. But it seems as if Square Enix is coming around to the idea, and we may even see future Fina...

New features for Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster

A brand new trailer for Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster goes over just how they've upgraded the PS2 JRPG classic. After tricking you with dorky 4:3 gameplay and mono sound, new visuals, new music, and new game content are sh...

Square Enix trademarks 'Shinra Company'

Dunnn...dun...dun... Everyone remembers the iconic Shinra theme from Final Fantasy VII. The shadowy, sleazy company is probably one of the most interesting parts of the game, and members of the organization even make their w...

Final Fantasy VII remake 'would take a lot to happen'

I always feel the odd fan out for never having wanted a Final Fantasy VII remake. The technical hurdles alone were always obvious while other people listlessly dreamed up VII's world recreated in full 3D, which would dramatic...

Neither Final Fantasy X-3 nor FFXII HD in development

One of the additions to Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD is a 30 minute audio episode wherein Tidus meets Auron's daughter. When asked if this could hint at another entry in the Final Fantasy X sub series, Square Enix's Shinji Hashimot...
