Valkyria: Azure Revolution is changing based on negative demo feedback

Taking a beloved strategy series and essentially transforming it into an action game was always going to be a risk. And for developer MediaVision with Valkyria: Azure Revolution, it didn't seem to pay off. Japanese players got their ha...

Overwatch's microtransaction prices have been revealed

God damn, Tabata talks 'Final Fantasy disease' and saving the series from itself

When Hajime Tabata took over as director for Final Fantasy XV in 2012 -- six years after it was announced -- people were pissed, including Square Enix employees working on the project. "It wasn't only from inside the team, but outside as we...

Over one year later, Witcher 3's last DLC is nearly here

It's hard to believe that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt came out over a year ago, but here we are in the eve of Blood and Wine's launch. As the last DLC for the game, it will close out Geralt's tale (for now) by whisking players away to the land...

Pac-Man 256 is coming to consoles and PC with multiplayer

I missed Hipster Whale's Pac-Man 256 on mobile, but an upgraded port with four-player local co-op and the ability to play with a gamepad by default sounds pretty good, actually. Publisher Bandai Namco is releasing the game on PlayStation 4...

When the AI plays possum

Rag doll physics remain the best thing about Grand Theft Auto, even in fake-death. There have been a lot of GTAV gifs in my life of late and it's making me really want to boot up some GTA Online -- on PS3, of course.
