Last week's top stories, now in handy haiku form photo
Last week's top stories, now in handy haiku form
by Darren Nakamura

This past weekend I was up late and feeling loopy, and some haikus about a Flash game nobody cares about fell out of that state. Struck with inspiration, I thought, "Why can't all news be digested 17 syllables at a time?" Thus, the video above was conceived.

Here are the stories mentioned, in case you missed them the first time and would like more information than a three-line stanza affords.

There! Are you feeling a little more zen now?

Man at Arms forges Auron's Katana from Final Fantasy X

Man at Arms is a pretty badass video series that crafts fictional weapons in real life, and this time they're tackling Auron's Katana from Final Fantasy X. You'll be able to see the entire process in the 10 minute video, which condenses the smithing process. Even if you aren't a fan of the series it's still worth watching just for educational purposes.

Final Fantasy XIV will get its DirectX 11 upgrade for the expansion photo
Final Fantasy XIV will get its DirectX 11 upgrade for the expansion
by Chris Carter

Ever since the launch of Final Fantasy XIV, the development team has mused on the idea of providing a DirectX 11 update for the PC edition, which would drastically improve its visual quality. While the PS4 version has near-perfect parity, the PC would be the clear superior platform with this improvement.

Finally we now have a release window for DX 11 -- it will arrive this spring/summer when the Heavensward expansion hits. The update will mostly fix the finer aspects of the graphical style (like water), and it won't be an all across the board fix. See the gallery for a better idea of what to expect.
