Another EA closure: This is Ultima Forever's final month

Given that publisher Electronic Arts closed Mythic Entertainment earlier this year, it's not unexpected to hear that the free-to-play mobile RPG Ultima Forever: Quest for the Avatar will also be shut down soon. Once it closes...

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?

I'd definitely play Vita RPG Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth looks really good in this new trailer. But we're not getting this one...yet. We are getting the newly announced Digimon: All-Star Rumble, and Namco Bandai knows that some folks here in the west wa...

Final Fantas-free: 14 day Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn trial

Square Enix is offering 14 days of free Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn on PC. As someone who doesn't like MMOs, but likes Final Fantasy, I might just try it out. Fourteen may be the perfect number of days for me to get my fill. Or maybe I'll find myself a convert and end up a paying customer, as Square Enix likely hopes.

Dragon Age: Inquisition combat makes me want to play Final Fantasy XII

Let's be fair, a lot of seemingly arbitrary things make me want to replay Final Fantasy XII. A lack of time coupled with a naive hope for an HD re-release always keep me from doing so, leaving me in a perpetual state of want...
