Final Fantasy 7 Remake

Cloud-Strife-FFVII-Remake

Get your Buster Swords ready kids, this geek’s fantasy has finally come true. Square-Enix announced at E3 2015 the long speculated remake of their beloved title, Final Fantasy VII. Accompanied by a beautiful cinematic trailer sure to stir fond memories of your time in Midgar, the announcement relayed little else concerning details about the gameplay, story, or release date.  Tetsuya Nomura, game director, has been quoted as saying that the game will not be a “simple remake” and that scenario writer Kazushige Nojima, is hard at work creating new story content.

Since the announcement, heated debates have sprung up all over the interwebs concerning the mechanics of transporting outdated (yet cherished) gameplay to the modern era will work. Will we see turn-based combat and the materia system return in all their glory, or does the team over at Square-Enix have other plans? We can’t know for sure until a gameplay trailer is released, but I for one am rooting for the classic JRPG combat to stay as true to the original as possible. Give me my 16 counterattack materia, and I will show you destruction the likes you have never seen!  Now if only I could remember how to breed a gold chocobo…

Murdered: Soul Suspect Confirmed for Xbox One and PS4

murdered-soul-suspect-7

Murdered: Soul Suspect publisher Square Enix have confirmed today that it will be coming to both the Xbox One and the PS4. Originally when it was announced, it was coming for Xbox 30, PC, and PS3, but now we know that it is officially coming to the two new consoles alongside the current ones, sometime in June 2014.

Square Enix stated in a statement that “The new console versions will offer increased visual fidelity via native 1080p output. Elements such as subsurface scattering and an increased particle count will depict an even more immersive ghost world and cast as players guide slain Salem detective Ronan O’Connor on a quest to find his killer and escape the limbo-like world of Dusk.”

Along with these announcements they also sent this new gameplay/story trailer showing off a little bit more of just what exactly Murdered: Soul Suspect is exactly, even though many people in the gaming press are already calling it “LA Noire with Ghosts” which if it actually is that….. I think that would be pretty damn sweet.


Murdered: Soul Suspect is slated for release sometime in June 2014.

Thief 101, New Thief Gameplay Trailer

Thief-Game-Wallpaper-HD

So this very cool video landed today, showcasing the upcoming Thief game by Eidos Montreal. In this video we get a taste for the new game, it is 6 minutes of show off really, all the ways you can play and just hinting a little bit about what this game may be about. This game has had an interesting run leading up to release and I will be very curious to see how it turns out. If this video is anything to go by though, this is looking like a VERY good game. I keep getting a very big Dishonored vibe from this new Thief; which on one hand makes me excited (Dishonored is amazing, if you haven’t played it, GO NOW and do so)  but on the other hand make me also slightly concerned, as I want this new Thief game to be its own game, not a copy of something that I have already played. Take a look below at this new trailer and feel free to share with us what your thoughts on this new Thief game are.


Thief is being released on Feb 25, 2014 for the Xbox 360, PC, PS4, Xbox One and PS3.

You won’t find any Kain or Raziel in this Nosgoth

Nosgoth Logo

Well, Legacy of Kain and Soul Reaver fans, I am sorry to tell you, the new game set in this universe has absolutely nothing to do with either of those franchise’s, except for being set in the same “universe”.  Nosgoth is the competitive, team-based Human vs. Vampire free-to-play multiplayer game set in the dark fantasy world of the ‘Legacy of Kain’ series. The premise is that this game takes place during the war between Humans and Vampires. You can either play as a human or a vampire, the humans are more range characters with weapons, and the Vampires are more melee focused characters, where they themselves are weapons, and their movement is also much greater (run on walls, one can fly, etc) Square Enix has released the first video showing off this new game, you can check it out below.

Nosgoth is going to be a Free To Play game, and it is going into closed beta soon. Nosgoth is being developed for the PC, no word on a console release at this time. If you want to know more, and sign up for the closed beta, you can go here, Nosgoth.
