Final Fantasy III is now on Steam and kind of pricey

I mean, it's cool that they got Final Fantasy III to PC after it released on Android early this year. It just feels weird to see it up there at $16, more expensive than, say, Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VIII.  Ye...

Arcade Arms recreates Final Fantasy XIV's Gae Bolg lance photo
Arcade Arms recreates Final Fantasy XIV's Gae Bolg lance
by Chris Carter

Arcade Arms is at it again, forging real life versions of digital weaponry. This week they tackled the Gae Bolg, the Relic Weapon of choice for Dragoons in the MMO Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Check out the video for some in-game footage of the weapon, as well as a demonstration from a really big dude who looks like he could walk on the set of Game of Thrones.

As someone who mains a Dragoon I approve this message -- although I'd love to see the Paladin's Curtana and the Holy Shield.

Fat Chocobo plush is as huggable as you'd expect

I've been pretty into fat Chocobos (or are they just big chocoboned?) since Brett wrote this thing on getting into MMOs through Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. I still likely won't play it, though, and I won't buy this bad...

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn made me a fan of MMOs photo
Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn made me a fan of MMOs
by Brett Zeidler

I'm generally not that big of a fan of MMOs. I've checked out a good portion of what the genre has to offer, but for many reasons none of the games that I spent some time with could ever keep my interest longer than the beta test/trial period. Not even the mighty World of Warcraft could pull me in like so many other people, and, honestly, it was probably the least interesting MMO I've played.

So why is it that I can't seem to pull myself away from Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn?

Square Enix made more money this year than it lost last year

Review: Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn (PS4) photo
Review: Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn (PS4)
by Chris Carter

At this point, we've talked about the early-game mechanics of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, and the trip to level 50. Now it's time to really put out a final verdict based on everything patch 2.2 has to offer, up to and including the Extreme Primal bosses and other pieces of endgame content.

After everything is said and done, I'm still loving it just as much as I did while leveling. There's so much on offer here for just about everyone, and incremental patches add such a monumental amount of content that it's hard to keep up.

As long as you're willing to brave through a few shortcomings, A Realm Reborn is one of the best MMOs in years.
