Dargon Quest IV on iOS: A typo, not a trick

No, this is not someone trying to make a quick buck with some off brand Nontendo 3DS. This is Square Enix putting Dragon Quest IV up on the (fertile testing ground that is New Zealand) Apple Store and misspelling it...

Claim your Poké Ball Pattern Vivillon in Pokémon X/Y while you can

I didn't get into collecting all of the uniquely-patterned Vivillons in Pokemon X/Y but I did quite like that one with the Poké Ball design that was given out earlier this year in France. (And I don't think it was a si...

Father of the Wasteland: How to trust your fans and revive a classic photo
Father of the Wasteland: How to trust your fans and revive a classic
by Alessandro Fillari

Take a moment and think about your dream game. You've probably been thinking about this for awhile. It's always in the back of your mind. Whenever you see new a title promising to do what your dream game does, you wonder if it can possibly reach it. Your dream game, it feels fleeting and impossible, but the joy and wonder it evokes is still real and raw. 

Suddenly, you've been given the chance to make you dream game real. Friends look to you and hope you won't screw things up. Now you've got strangers invested in it. With so many people now following you, watching you, wanting you to make your game, it puts an enormous amount of pressure on you. 

Sounds nerve wracking, right? This is all too real for Brian Fargo and his development studio inXile Entertainment. Two years after an enormously successful Kickstarter for Wasteland 2, they're quickly approaching the time for its release. We were invited to meet Fargo during his press tour for the game. During our talk, we learned just how much inXile and the creator are putting on the line with this revival of a classic post-apocalyptic adventure.

Pinsir and Heracross are part of the next Pokémon distribution event photo
Pinsir and Heracross are part of the next Pokémon distribution event
by Jordan Devore

The next Pokémon distribution event isn't terribly exciting. From August 13 through September 17, Pokémon X players can get Heracross and Y players can get Pinsir through the Internet.

More importantly, GameStop will offer code unlocks in the US for the Mega Stones needed to Mega Evolve Heracross and Pinsir. Those will first be available August 18 while supplies last.

These Pokémon are normally version exclusives, but that doesn't mean much now that the series has become online-enabled and trading is easier than ever. That said, I am glad the powers that be are planning to give out the Heracronite and Pinsirite Mega Stones.

Bravely Second looks beautiful, but what's up with the bondage?

Unfortunately I've yet to get around to playing Bravely Default, so I'm not entirely sure what the deal is with the bondage. Is it a thematic thing or a literal thing? Clue me in. Unless it's spoilers. Then don't. We received some words from Square Enix about the game world, jobs system, and so on a few days back, but pictures are nicer, right?
