During 343 Industries' stint at RTX 2014, they announced some multiplayer game modes which will appear in Halo 2: Anniversary Edition, coming by way of the Halo: Master Chief Collection to the Xbox One this Fall.

The Kickstarter for Fresh3D's high-def Outcast remake hasn't made as much progress as I would've thought. There's still time left -- the project is sitting at just over $220,000 of its $600,000 funding goal with 13 days l...
The above video takes environments and models from Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles and re-purposes them for a remake of Resident Evil 2. Which raises an interesting question: Why didn't Capcom just do this? This proje...

So close, but still far away, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster is doing a fine job of showing why the PlayStation 3 will still have a place in your entertainment center. How fine of a job? About 50-plus screenshots worth of fine. So fine, so sexy, so fresh, so clean. Final Fantasy X/ X-2 HD will release on December 26, 2013 in Japan, and in 2014 in all other territories.
The idea of remakes and reboots are a touchy subject but Sega is at least willing to listen to input from its fans about potentially bringing back classic titles. Sega Research and Development producer Yosuke Okunari says tha...

I've only played one Tales game, and it was Tales of Symphonia for the GameCube. It seemed to have just what I wanted, engaging combat and likeable characters in an appropriately insane JRPG plot. Though really, I d...

Final Fantasy VI, arguably the series' zenith, hasn't been milked and re-released to the same extent as other titles in the franchise. Even the harder to obtain Final Fantasy V has come to iOS. Well, no more, says Square Enix...

Curious why Final Fantasy X HD and Final Fantasy X-2 HD are taking so long? Square is doing quite a polish job on them, that's why. In addition to doing things like adding a whole new 30-minute scene. This latest video, whic...
If you're a long-time shmup fan, you may remember a largely forgotten Genesis classic called Steel Empire that dropped in 1992. Well it appears as if said classic was fondly recalled by someone, as it's heading to the 3DS in ...

I don't think I ever get tired of looking at Wind Waker. Winder Waker HD is dropping soon (October), so you better set aside a good chunk of time to delete all those games off of your Wii U to make some room. The game, now ov...
