Final Fantasy XV has a cutscene-heavy TGS trailer

Square Enix's Tokyo Game Show trailer for Final Fantasy XV delves further into the plot than the last few videos have, so if you're trying to keep that mostly a surprise until November's launch, you may want to hold off. Needless to say, t...   read

Review: Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse

You could say I like Shin Megami Tensei. I mean, the original name (Megami Tensei), essentially translates to "Rebirth of the Goddess," so you know there's going to be religious undertones afoot. A story framed around the battle o...   read
