Damn, Dissidia Final Fantasy arcade just keeps adding new characters

I hope that Square Enix is saving its PS4 port of Dissidia Final Fantasy for when the roster is mostly complete, so they can avoid patching it every month or so. That's how often they'd have to do it to keep up with the arcade edition,...   read

Sephiroth is getting his Kingdom Hearts outfit in Dissidia Final Fantasy

It may be a fool's errand to write about small updates to a Japanese arcade game but, like writing "Mrs. Antonio Banderas" in my middle school dream journal, I write this hoping I'll get my hands on it in the future. Anyway, shown off durin...   read

There is yet another Guilty Gear Xrd update coming

Not to talk too negatively about fighting games and their constant updates, but this is one of the reasons why I find it hard to get truly invested in any one particular series. Guilty Gear and BlazBlue have so many updates, sequels, and DL...   read

Kuja and his eyeliner are joining the cast of Dissidia Final Fantasy arcade

I think Kuja is a pretty underrated villain in the Final Fantasy stable. He has one of the best themes, and along with Kefka, is one of the most formidable antagonists in the series. Kuja also has a great little moment with Zidane at t...   read
