Final Fantasy XIV could come to the Xbox One, if Microsoft cooperates

Tell me if you haven't heard this before -- a developer wants to bring a highly successful multiplayer game to an Xbox platform, but Microsoft refuses to budge on some requirement, usually Xbox Live Gold. That's what's been h...

Along with our open world walkthrough, Max Scoville and I went ahead and checked out the competitive multiplayer in Destiny. We gave both maps a spin, and we also checked out each playable class for the videos.

The biggest thing you need to know is that all the weapons you can carry in the main game can be brought into multiplayer. Even bigger, you can switch your guns at any time from your inventory while in the middle of the match. No grabbing guns from the ground, no limited loadouts, just whatever you have with you. Up to at least 18 guns!

FFXIV producer talks about Shiva, the next iconic summon to invade the game

Square Enix reveals Rogue and Ninja classes for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn photo
Square Enix reveals Rogue and Ninja classes for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn
by Chris Carter

Today during Square Enix's Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn livestream, director Yoshi-P revealed a new class and a new job -- the Rogue and the Ninja respectively. The rumor was that new classes would be coming out in a future expansion, but Yoshi-P revealed that it would be "sooner" -- like, Patch 2.4 soon.

The Rogue will turn into a Ninja at 30, effectively morphing the base class into the full-on job. The two roles will also play a heavy role in the lore of the game, and their story will be justified within the confines of the game.

As far as mechanics go, movement speed will be faster as a default, and you'll earn less fall damage than other classes. Poison blades and dual wielding is confirmed, and it is a straight DPS class. Healers and other support are being considered for the new expansion.

Yep, I'm totally leveling a Ninja the day it comes out.

[Update: watch the FFXIV E3 livestream below!]

In anticipation of its new 2.3 patch that will arrive with the Primal Ramuh, Square Enix has dropped a new Primal-centric trailer that updates us on what's going on in Final Fantasy XIV's Eorzea. Although Ramuh is the main attraction, Garuda, Titan, and Leviathan are featured as well.

Expect more info on Final Fantasy XIV soon, as director Naoki Yoshida (Yoshi-P) is delivering his newest Letter from the Producer LIVE segment at 1PM PST. We'll have all of the new developments posted on Destructoid as they come.

I'm really hoping for another class or two -- ninja and chemist support please!

This marks the second E3 we've seen Tom Clancy's The Division, an ambitious online open-world RPG that sees a players dealing with a disaster after society has fallen. This is also the second year in a row that we could not get our hands-on with the game.

Instead, Ubisoft played through a build for us. First they showed us what you all got to see during Ubisoft's press conference (video above). Then we got to see the same area, but during a nighttime setting.

Watch us play an hour's worth Destiny's open world photo
Watch us play an hour's worth Destiny's open world
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

The folks at Bungie gave Destructoid full access to the Destiny Alpha just before E3. You may remember that I wasn't all that excited for the game the last time I saw it, but having full freedom to do whatever and being able to discover things on my own has really changed my opinion.

I'm way more excited for Destiny again now, and you can see why as Max Scoville and I play nearly an hour's worth of the open world aspect known as Patrols. Plus we went and checked out the social space hub called The Tower at the very end of our playthrough.

For more on Destiny, check out Chris Carter's full hands-on breakdown, and we'll have some videos of the multiplayer PvP stuff later today.

Final Fantasy XIV's patch 2.28 brings lots of great changes

I play a lot of MMOs, and not all of them are as updated as often as Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Traditionally, major patches (2.1, 2.2, and the upcoming 2.3) deliver the stuff everyone wants, like more dungeons, raids...

War Thunder is available for download on PS4 right now

Hey. Do you want a free PS4 game? It's a pretty good one, a WWII MMO action game where you can blow sh*t (and others) up with planes and tanks, and you can even play against PC and Mac users via cross play. It's a damned goo...
