Preview: Murdered: Soul Suspect
by Steven Hansen

The last few times we've written about Murdered: Soul Suspect, the discussions centered around next gen ports. Well, that and the protagonist's unfortunate choice of head wear and other accoutrements. I mean, the fedora is somehow not the most egregious fashion choice. Wallet chain? 

But now I've gotten a chance to play and have a bunch of different things to complain about.

You can use the Konami code in Bravely Default

Once you've beaten Bravely Default, a secret movie will unlock that essentially serves as a bridge to the upcoming sequel -- Bravely Second. But apparently you don't need to complete the game to unlock it, as you can use the...

Cactuar with a mustache & a bunch of Theatrhythm videos

Theatrhythm was the first 3DS game I bought. I'm super excited for Curtain Call's 200 songs and whatever other additions it has. It's coming out in Japan in April. Hopefully we don't have to wait to much longer, or it's curtains for Square Enix.

The Japanese Voice Pack DLC is available for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII today, priced at $3.99. That's great and appreciated, but I'm really here for the Moogle dress that we've been hearing about. That crazy dress...

Bravely Default producer Tomoya Asano talks sequel plans

Bravely Default has been out in the west for some time, and despite some topical narrative choices, it's safe to say it's been a hit. Siliconera got the chance to talk to producer Tomoya Asano, and mostly talked abo...

DOOM 4 beta, Yokai Watch & Final Fantasy on PC photo
DOOM 4 beta, Yokai Watch & Final Fantasy on PC
by Max Scoville

Hey everybody, I’m back from Japan! And here’s your quasi-timely news update for the first two thirds of this week. Irrational Games closed, pre-ordering Wolfenstein: The New Order gets you a beta for the new and technically unannounced DOOM game. Square Enix has trademarked “Shinra Company,” there’s a possibility of new Final Fantasy games on PC in the future, and in the meantime, Final Fantasies VII, VIII, and XIV are currently on sale.

Level 5 is getting me all hot and bothered by teasing a western release of Yokai Watch, which is selling like adorable ghostcakes in Japan. PC and PS4 owners will get Zombie Studios’ Daylight in April, and next month sees the release of Towerfall Ascension, the expanded version of the former Ouya exclusive.

Watch what Thief is all about in this new launch trailer

Thief is almost here, and you can get a glimpse of a bit of gameplay (but not much) from its launch trailer above. As expected, there's tons of looting, sneaking, and swooping, compliments of the master thief and hero o...

First look at Agent 47 in the new Hitman film

2007's Hitman movie wasn't awful. In fact, I'd be willing to believe that people were even fans of the adaptation. But there's certainly plenty of room for improvement and here's hoping Agent 47 delivers where the prior movie...

We could see more Final Fantasy games on PC in the future

In case you haven't noticed, not a whole lot of Final Fantasy games are on the PC at the moment, even in port form years later. But it seems as if Square Enix is coming around to the idea, and we may even see future Fina...

New features for Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster

A brand new trailer for Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster goes over just how they've upgraded the PS2 JRPG classic. After tricking you with dorky 4:3 gameplay and mono sound, new visuals, new music, and new game content are sh...

Square Enix trademarks 'Shinra Company'

Dunnn...dun...dun... Everyone remembers the iconic Shinra theme from Final Fantasy VII. The shadowy, sleazy company is probably one of the most interesting parts of the game, and members of the organization even make their w...
