Square Enix kicks off Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call legacy music campaign
by Chris Carter

Square Enix has a new trailer out for Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call, and it's decidedly focused on legacy tunes. Billed as the "Legacy of Music Campaign," the developer is kicking off a new series that is aimed at introducing fans to how Final Fantasy got its start.

This first video shows off the first three Final Fantasy games, all of which were on the NES before IV started the fruitful SNES era. All in all, Curtain Call will feature 221 songs and 60 playable characters -- without DLC.

As for DLC, this song is confirmed, and it's all I need.

MMO patches can often be bigger than full retail games. One of the reasons a subscription based game charges a fee is to pay for the maintenance -- the other is to pay for all the research and development that goes into new content.

In the case of Final Fantasy XIV, it's getting quite a bit of it in patch 2.3 -- a Ramuh boss fight (hard and extreme), three new dungeons, a new sidestory questline, a second portion of the raid Crystal Tower, a new 72-person PVP mode, monster hunts that take place on the world map, personal housing (in the form of a room for now) and a lot more.

Although it's a bit unconventional, expect a full review of patch 2.3 after release, and check out the trailer for a sneak peak above.

Go on a sniping rampage in Hitman Sniper
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Square hasn’t been afraid to use the Hitman IP in fun and creative ways. Hitman GO was a critical success for doing something unique, and while Hitman Sniper isn’t on that same scale, it is still at least a ton of fun.
