Final Fantasy XV will get a free monster encyclopedia update at some point

I'm impressed with just how much there is to do in Final Fantasy XV, even without buying any of the DLC or partaking in the Season Pass. There's going to be a whole lot more too in the form of free updates, including a monster encyclopedia,...   read

Capcom has no plans for Resident Evil 7, or any Resident Evil, on the Switch

So not a whole lot has changed so far in terms of third party releases on Nintendo systems. The whole industry was scared by the Wii U (and to a lesser extent, the tail-end of the shovelware filled Wii), and a lot of heavy-hitters are holdi...   read

The final Dark Souls III DLC is called 'The Ringed City'
