Podcast: The best music, songs and soundtracks

Listen up, you’re drumming on my time now. What’s the tune? It’s the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show of course.

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster On PC This Week

Final Fantasy barely touched PCs for years (well, other than being made with them), but Square Enix have been making up for that. They're flinging the RPGs at us lately, catching up on the decades with fancied-up ports and remasters.
