Final Fantasy VII Returns announced for PS4

Square Enix has announced a new project at the PlayStation Experience -- Final Fantasy VII Returns. It will apparently be a release of the PC version of the game with upscaled visuals. Again, this does not seem to be a ...

Final Fantasy XIII resolution patch finally dated

The PC port of Square Enix's perennially controversial Final Fantasy XIII didn't get off to the best start. As far as console-to-PC ports go, it wasn’t the worst that I’ve come across, but it had a lot of roo...

Final Fantasy Type-0, but as a boring history doc for some reason?

I thought fascista Steve Blum at the onset--Type-0's Cid--had a Guile pompadour rather than an army hat. And I guess the hat makes sense, but then his young homie has big anime hair anyways and no sensible hat, so I'm lost a...

The Final Fantasy XV demo will be roughly two hours

Final Fantasy XV is looking pretty great overall. I'm really digging the outlandish bro-fest road trip vibe, and the visual style looks sharp as hell. To get a taste, Square Enix has a promotion where you'll be able to ...

Two years worth of work went into this Final Fantasy VII recreation in LittleBigPlanet

I love Final Fantasy VII as much as the next guy, unless the next guy is Jamie Colliver. More than two years ago we featured his work in LittleBigPlanet 2 as he had remade Final Fantasy VII up through the Temple of the Ancie...

Final Fantasy XV nature hike: Pig dinosaurs, red soled shoes photo
Final Fantasy XV nature hike: Pig dinosaurs, red soled shoes

Final Fantasy XV footage? Yes, please. 

Check out the gas station at :22. Check out the abs at 1:12. Check at the weird main character running motion at 1:20 (little Verbal Kint in there). Everyone being tired at 1:46. The dinosaur pig at 2:02. Party members offscreen killing enemies without your involvement at 3:00 (at least that's what it sounds like). Nighttime at 5:20, though I'd like it even darker. 

I don't know why the cast are all red-soled, men in black fashion disasters, but everything else is pretty sweet.

Wonder what sort of player traversal options there will be outside of the car, which seems road-restricted. Remember when Final Fantasy VIII had you drive cars and run out of gas? Weird game. There were some grazing chocobos. And those sort of lame flying drop ships at the end.

Review: Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn (Patch 2.4)
by Chris Carter

The prospect of playing as a Ninja again in Final Fantasy excited me. After working my way up to level 50 in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, the class ended up having so much style and substance that it changed the game for the better, and I'll be enjoying it for months to come.

While the rest of the Dreams of Ice update wasn't as enjoyable as playing a Ninja at endgame, A Realm Reborn remains worth playing.

Player-created Turks event in FFXIV: Just another reason why I love MMOs

MMOs usually have official "events" that are designed to get players to log in and play after extended periods of disinterest. They tend to involve holiday festivities of some sort, or in the case of some games, they make up ...

This artist made Final Fantasy's Garuda out of LEGOs

Garuda has been a part of the Final Fantasy series for quite a while, and that tradition continues with Final Fantasy XIV. This form is a bit more human in nature, and instead of aiming for a more wild bird look, Square ...

Review in Progress: Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn (Patch 2.4)
by Chris Carter

I still can't believe Square Enix salvaged the original Final Fantasy XIV. I mean, it had the guts to make the game a core entry, so I'm glad the studio reworked it into A Realm Reborn -- this whole saga is just really interesting to me.

The newest update is Dreams of Ice, featuring a Primal/Summon many fans of the classic series know and love, Shiva. It also brings along the typical major changes and content bits, as well as one of the biggest additions so far -- a new class/job.
