Final Fantasy Explorers feels like Crystal Chronicles meets Monster Hunter photo
Final Fantasy Explorers feels like Crystal Chronicles meets Monster Hunter
by Elliot Gay

It's become exceedingly easy in recent years to point the finger at any four player cooperative game in Japan and call it a Monster Hunter clone. I'm not particularly fond of this way of thinking. Despite my love of Monster Hunter (200+ hours in MH4), I think many of the various hunting action games have unique, interesting qualities that separate them from one another.

Perhaps that's why I had been so jazzed to check out Final Fantasy Explorers, Square Enix's first attempt to dabble in the hunting action genre. With a stable of classic monsters, jobs, and giant bosses in its long history, Final Fantasy seems like the perfect franchise to get a spinoff in the genre.

Off-screen Silent Hills trailer from TGS is still scary

Earlier today, Frank and I were poking around Konami's Tokyo Game Show booth, taking pictures of statues, candies, and other nonsense. We were stopped by a loud rumbling, which caused us to turn around. We just happened...

Raiden V coming to Xbox One next year

If things work out as we expect them to, you'll soon see a trailer for Raiden V popping up on YouTube and our front page. The next in the line of shmups will come to the Xbox One next year in Japan, and most likely beyond.  There's a trailer running at Microsoft's Tokyo Game Show booth today. Stay tuned -- I'm sure we'll have it soon.

Check out the slime Dragon Quest Heroes PS4 system

We got an up-close look at the recently announced Dragon Quest Heroes PS4 at Tokyo Game Show today. The Square Enix / Koei Tecmo tag team is exciting enough that Sony is bringing out this silver, slimed PS4 in Japan. The meta...

Watch this new Yakuza Zero footage and daydream about playing it

New footage of the recently announced Yakuza 0 (or is it Yakuza Zero?) was revealed today at Tokyo Game Show 2014. I can always count on seeing new Yakuza games at TGS, but I can also count on being disappointed after m...

We try Metal Gear Solid cardboard box candy at TGS

Yes, they really have Metal Gear Solid The Phantom Pain cardboard box candy at Tokyo Game Show 2014. We were stupid enough to spend 640 yen (about $6) on eight pieces of what looks to be tiny squares of chocolate crisped rice...

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD plays as well as ever photo
Final Fantasy Type-0 HD plays as well as ever
by Elliot Gay

I adored Final Fantasy Type-0 when it first released on the PSP in Japan a few years back. It took me a whopping 75 hours to clear the game my first time, and while it undoubtedly had its fair share of problems (weird RTS sections, poor group leveling system, camera), I felt that the positives heavily outweighed the negatives. It's not secret that it's my personal favorite Final Fantasy of the last generation. 

In what turned out to be a pleasant surprise, Final Fantasy Type-0 HD appeared on the TGS show floor in completely playable fashion, so I rushed over first thing to give it a look.

The new Pink/White PS Vita is super cute

I'll stick with my teal blue Japanese PS Vita that I brought home from TGS last year. But I'm still digging the new Pink/White model, on display at TGS 2014. It's just like mine with the all-white face, with the back taking all the color.  This new Vita launches in November in Japan, priced at 18,980 yen. How's your boring North American Vita?

Bravely Second is shaping up quite nicely

Square Enix's latest traditional 3DS JRPG, Bravely Second, was playable on the Tokyo Game Show floor this year, and I had a chance to go hands on with it. This is the first time the game has been released to the public, so I ...

Final Fantasy XV screenshots from TGS are...uh

You've seen the trailer so now see the screenshots Square Enix handed me this morning at Tokyo Game Show 2014 for Final Fantasy XV. They're having a tailgating party. Car-b-que. It's a nice car, I guess. But the screenshots look nice! That battle one does something for me. The upcoming Xbox One and PS4 title has this new media, but that's the only thing you'll get out of TGS 2014. Hang in there.

Final Fantasy XV TGS 2014 Trailer is pretty sharp photo
Final Fantasy XV TGS 2014 Trailer is pretty sharp
by Alessandro Fillari

TGS 2014 is already off to a big start with the release of a brand new trailer for Final Fantasy XV. Much to the disappointment of many, it was absent from this year's E3 and gamescom shows, but the nearly three-minute trailer aims to make up for the lost time.

In this trailer, we get to see our heroes travel around outside of the city in a rather expensive car -- which by the way looks be to be fully controllable. Their trip down the scenic route shows off some massive wildlife and other foes looking for a fight. But our heroes are more than up for a challenge, and they even display some clever team focuses attacks.

It's a pretty sharp trailer, which isn't a surprise. Square Enix knows how to make its games look stunning, and this trailer certainly does a great job of showing that. With TGS already underway, we can expect to hear some more info about the state of FFXV, and hopefully when it will be released.

Stay tuned to Dtoid for more info from TGS 2014 as it's released.
