The Just Cause 3 box art looks exactly how you'd expect the Just Cause 3 box art to look

Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is out today, and it kicks the crap out of All the Bravest photo
Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is out today, and it kicks the crap out of All the Bravest
by Chris Carter

Final Fantasy: All the Bravest was a travesty. It played itself, it was pretty abrasive in its pandering, and the microtransactions were so pushy that it was hard to enjoy it without feeling like you were constantly being sold something.

Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is another free-to-play game in the same vein, but it's a much better effort that doesn't feel straight-up insulting to fans.

Review: Life is Strange: Out of Time photo
Review: Life is Strange: Out of Time
by Brett Makedonski

I just finished episode two of Life is Strange, and I've spiraled down a playlist of Ben Folds songs. Out of Time is Kate Marsh's story, but "Kate" is too cheerful; this tale isn't about daisies, dandelions, and butterflies. The weighty subject material is more in line with the hopelessness that defines "Carrying Cathy," but alas, that's a different name, although not far off.

That being said, Out of Time does what episode one couldn't: it makes the audience care about character arcs other than main protagonist Max's. After a Max-centric first chapter, it's the other citizens of Arcadia Bay who get a share of the spotlight. We're given some quiet moments with Chloe to begin to understand her struggle. We're introduced to Chloe's mother, who may be the most reasonable and believable character in Life is Strange. Andof course, we grieve with Kate as her entire world turns against her.

Final Fantasy XV is a Goddamn Sexual Tyrannosaurus photo
Final Fantasy XV is a Goddamn Sexual Tyrannosaurus
by Chris Carter

Hidden away in the intro to my Final Fantasy Type-0 HD review, I recently talked about how Final Fantasy was never dead despite some rough patches, and based on recent efforts, it actually has a bright future ahead of it. Ok so maybe that bit wasn't really hidden, and maybe it was more of a rant and less of a talk, but my point still stands: I'm happy with the direction the franchise has been going lately.

After spending a week with the Final Fantasy XV demo, I'm even happier.

Review: Final Fantasy Type-0 HD
by Chris Carter

For years now, some people have been saying that Final Fantasy is dead. While XIII was considered a misstep by some, XIII-2 was a marked improvement and Lighting Returns was one of my favorite games of last year.

Oh, and there's the impressive showing for Final Fantasy XV, the constantly improving Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, which is one of the best MMOs ever made, a fantastic rhythm-based sub-franchise, and a handful of interesting side projects. Now we have Type-0 HD

Final Fantasy is far from dead, folks.

Holy hindsight! Five series that should have been on Wii photo
Holy hindsight! Five series that should have been on Wii
by Tony Ponce

By the end of 2014, Xbox 360 had slid past Wii to become the best-selling seventh generation console in the US. While a fantastic achievement for Microsoft, this event also punctuates the drastic shift in Nintendo's market dominance. Where once Wii was on track to become the best-selling dedicated gaming console of all time, it's now all but forgotten.

There are various reasons why history played out the way it did, but at the end of the day, it's all about the games, and Wii's library had some pretty glaring holes. To be fair, there were a lot of fantastic games on Wii -- Nintendo itself published some of the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful titles in company history, while several third parties were able to ride the wave to good fortune.

Sadly, the industry at large didn't support Wii in a manner befitting of a market leader, resulting in a legacy of wasted potential. Had these publishers done a better job in leveraging their biggest brands on the little white box, the current gaming landscape could have been much different.

Mevius Final Fantasy looks kind of hot, aside from the mobile thing

I've got to hand it to Square Enix -- Mevius Final Fantasy does look impressive. Certainly no All the Bravest. I also don't want to play games on my cellphone so this is not for me. So it's fine that it is only coming to iOS and Android in Japan this spring. Though I am feeling the weird backless, capris overalls at 1:13. Wish I had back muscles like that.
