Octopath Traveller Demo: On the Right Path

If you missed last week’s Nintendo Direct, you might be wondering based on the title “what the hell is an Octopath Traveller?” Odd name aside, What you’re looking at is another modern take on the JRPG genre from the minds behind the equally innovative Bravely Default. But based on the recent demo, Octopath Traveller seems to be even … More Octopath Traveller Demo: On the Right Path

Fantastical Road Trip: Final Fantasy XV Review

10 Years. That’s how long it’s been since Final Fantasy XV was announced. Technically it wasn’t even called Final Fantasy XV back then, it was part of the Final Fantasy XIII universe as Final Fantasy Versus XIII.

Not Crystal Clear – Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV Review

When the title was announced back at E3 2015, the internet (and myself) had one particular reaction. Square Enix took note and when they showed off their latest trailer at this past weekend’s PlayStation … More Everyone Needs to Calm Down About Final Fantasy VII

We Have Arrived: Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Review

When one traditionally thinks of Final Fantasy, a few things come to mind. Moogles, Chocobos, ridiculous airships, even more ridiculous hairstyles, and some really big swords are just a few examples of some ideas that have for better or worse helped define the franchise. However, tropes like these are what has caused the series as a whole … More We Have Arrived: Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Review

After School Special: Top 3 Games with School Settings

Summer is over. Which means that it’s time to head back to school. If you’re like me and are long past your school days, you might look back at it with some form of nostalgia. However, that nostalgia turns to relief when you realize you don’t have to do it again. Going to school is a pain for … More After School Special: Top 3 Games with School Settings
