Review: Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD ReMIX photo
Review: Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD ReMIX
by Brittany Vincent

The odd concept of melding a host of characters from Square Enix’s seminal Final Fantasy series, Disney’s perennial film favorites, and a cast of original personalities, seemed as though it was destined for failure. I mean, who would want to hear Donald Duck’s honking lisp while sharing the screen with the likes of Cloud Strife or Sephiroth?

Being a Square fan, I had to try it out though, and not only did I fall in love with the games, but I rediscovered my love for the Disney franchises of my youth. Although it took almost four years for a sequel to be released, Kingdom Hearts was and is a series that has stuck with me. Then, when Kingdom Hearts II was released in early 2006, I bought it immediately.

Final Fantasy VII PS4 will cost more than the recent PC port

Last weekend, Square Enix screwed with its fans with too much pomp around announcing a PS4 release of the original Final Fantasy VII, seemingly a port of last year's PC release. You can get last year's PC release for $12 on Steam, but when Final Fantasy VII comes to PS4 in spring of 2015, it will be $16. I guess that's $4 for "system-exclusive features." The Share button, maybe?

Final Fantasy XIII resolution patch finally dated

The PC port of Square Enix's perennially controversial Final Fantasy XIII didn't get off to the best start. As far as console-to-PC ports go, it wasn’t the worst that I’ve come across, but it had a lot of roo...

Final Fantasy Type-0, but as a boring history doc for some reason?

I thought fascista Steve Blum at the onset--Type-0's Cid--had a Guile pompadour rather than an army hat. And I guess the hat makes sense, but then his young homie has big anime hair anyways and no sensible hat, so I'm lost a...

Final Fantasy XV nature hike: Pig dinosaurs, red soled shoes photo
Final Fantasy XV nature hike: Pig dinosaurs, red soled shoes
by Steven Hansen

Final Fantasy XV footage? Yes, please. 

Check out the gas station at :22. Check out the abs at 1:12. Check at the weird main character running motion at 1:20 (little Verbal Kint in there). Everyone being tired at 1:46. The dinosaur pig at 2:02. Party members offscreen killing enemies without your involvement at 3:00 (at least that's what it sounds like). Nighttime at 5:20, though I'd like it even darker. 

I don't know why the cast are all red-soled, men in black fashion disasters, but everything else is pretty sweet.

Wonder what sort of player traversal options there will be outside of the car, which seems road-restricted. Remember when Final Fantasy VIII had you drive cars and run out of gas? Weird game. There were some grazing chocobos. And those sort of lame flying drop ships at the end.
