Final Fantasy XIV (PC)

Final Fantasy XIV users will need to renew membership to keep playing

Posted on December 05, 2011

Square-Enix just sent a message to Final Fantasy XIV players who still have accounts in the system. As you may recall, the game has been free-to-play since shortly after its launch, which Square-Enix has admitted didn't go as planned. The company is hard at work on a substantial revamp and the game has been free to play for quite some time as a result, but that is ending as work on the revamp continues. Today, Square-Enix outlined the process.

Confirmed: Xenoblade North American release a go

Posted on December 02, 2011

It's been quite some time since North Americans dared to be optimistic about a North American release for Xenoblade Chronicles, the Nintendo-published RPG from Monolith that has seen release in Japan and Europe. Over the summer, a fan campaign was launched to convince Nintendo to bring Xenoblade Chronicles, Pandora's Tower, and The Last Story to the west. It sort of worked, as all three games have been announced for or released in Europe, though when they finally resp...

Remember that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim patch released this week? Sure, it might've fixed some things, but I'm pretty sure making dragons fly backward wasn't a part of the plan.

Final Fantasy Type-0 (PSP)

Final Fantasy Type-0 localization confirmed

Posted on November 29, 2011

Despite topping Japanese sales charts, Final Fantasy Type-0 has always been in an awkward position when it comes to getting a localization. The Vita is only a few months away, and Type-0 is a PSP game with no US release date. Worse yet, every "confirmation" of it being localized has turned out to be false. All that changes now, as an overseas version has finally been confirmed.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 to have Assassin's Creed Revelations DLC costume

Posted on November 28, 2011

Crossovers are nothing new to video games. One need simply look at Soulcalibur to see a few out of place characters cropping up. Even so, few could have expected Assassin's Creed, of all things, to be making an appearance in Final Fantasy XIII-2.

PC gamers, I hope you're not planning to skip the free-to-play Ghost Recon Online and hold out for Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. It doesn't look like a PC version of next year's shooter is in Ubisoft's cards, according to a PC Gamer report.
