Crystal Dynamics are working on requested Marvel’s Avengers features, delaying Kate Bishop

Marvel's Avengers has been out for over a month now, during which time the superhero service game has been bracing through some speedbumps. Since launch, Crystal Dynamics say they've been taking on feedback while solving bugs, matchmaking issues, and game stability. They've outlined some player-requested features and raid-style missions currently in the works, though the addition of Hawkeye Kate Bishop is getting pushed back. Oh,…

Beefy loot-shooter Outriders has been delayed

I'm afraid there'll be no muscle-bound spacemen down the chimney this year, children. Outriders, the brutal third-person roadie-runner from the folks behind Bulletstorm, has had its plans for a Winter release scuppered by the mess that is 2020. People Can Fly's RPG shooter is now slated to arrive this February - but at least there'll be full crossplay when it finally arrives.

An inheritance from a long-lost relative demands you live surrounded by Nier: Automata or Cyberpunk 2077 statues

Dearest reader, I bring you tragic and wonderful news. A wealthy long-lost relative has died (oh no!) and bequeathed you their estate (oh ho!) but with one unusual condition (o-oh?). Should you wish to claim their riches, titles, and mansion, you must fully accept into your heart and life one of two new ludicrous 1/4-scale video game statues. From now until your end, you shall…

Nier Replicant Ver.1.22474487139 is coming in April 2021

Square Enix today announced an April 23rd release date for Nier Replicant Ver.1.22474487139..., the confusingly-named new edition of the 2010 action-RPG. This game is set millennia before Nier: Automata, the first game in the series that came to PC, though it does have a few familiar faces. The new version is tweaked, expanded, and prettied-up a bit, supposedly enough that Squeenix call it an "update"…

Feature: Honestly, it's uncanny

Final Fantasy 16’s reveal trailer has big Final Fantasy 15 energy and I am here for it

Final Fantasy 16's future on PC may have been thrown into doubt over the last 48 hours thanks to Square Enix's ongoing exclusivity mess, but man alive, I am EXCITED all the same. Partly because its brand new "Awakening" reveal trailer shown off during Wednesday's latest PS5 Showcase a) looked fantastic, and b) explicitly stated it had been captured on PC, thereby giving me hope…

Life Is Strange 2’s first episode is now free, forever

Starting today, the first episode of supernatural teen sequel Life Is Strange 2is going completely free, permanently. Oh, you'll still have to pay up to see their journey through to completion, but now you can spend a few hours with the Diaz brothers as they begin…

Sony’s PS5 showcase was exciting for PC gaming, then hugely disappointing

For a brief, beautiful moment last night, Sony were good to PC gaming. Their PlayStation 5 Showcase focused on their new console, sure, but they did let the Final Fantasy XVI announcement confirm a PC release, and they did reveal the Demon's Souls remaster is coming to PC too. For a company cagey about even acknowledging the existence of other platforms, this was delightful. Then…

Final Fantasy XVI announced and it looks grim as heck

Update from Alice0: Gematsu claim Square Enix PR have told them no, they haven't confirmed a PC release, despite what the trailer on Sony's stream said. One analyst claims it is coming to PC, but Sony told him it's a 'full exclusive' on PS5 for six months and 'console exclusive' for a year. I've reached out to Squeenix PR myself for answers. Between this and…

Final Fantasy XIV’s next update hopes to solve its housing shortage

Hey, did you know Final Fantasy XIV has a housing shortage? I was not aware Final Fantasy XIV could have a housing shortage, but here we are!

At a Japanese conference this week, the gang of former Final Fantasy XV folks gave a talk including a demonstration of its world editor, and they've kindly put it on YouTube for all to see.…

The first post-launch Marvel’s Avengers character is Kate Bishop, the other Hawkeye

Superman and his Super Friends slip on their spandex for the launch of Marvel's Avengers on Friday (though pre-orderers already have access), then after that Square Enix plan to update the action-RPG with new characters and content in that 'live service' way. Last night's 'War Table' stream confirmed the first character coming after launch will be Kate Bishop, the other arrow-plinging hero known as Hawkeye.…

Final Fantasy XIV plans to add more player housing plots by patch 5.4

That chocobo-infused MMO Final Fantasy XIV has seen an uptick in player counts since expanding its free trial and apparently things are starting to get a bit too cozy in Eorzea. Player housing is a limited resource in fantasy land and it's only getting scarcer. Square Enix say they're looking to expand the number of housing plots available in time for patch 5.4.

Final Fantasy XIV’s free trial now includes all of Heavensward

Getting into a new MMORPG is always a little daunting, never mind one as huge as Final Fantasy XIV. Fortunately, Square Enix have made that hill a little easier to climb. Closing out Shadowbringers' story may be Patch 5.3: Reflections in Crystal's headline act - but if you've only just started dipping your toe into the massive online JRPG, today's update gives you a hell…

Dragon Quest XI’s Definitive Edition is coming to PC

Two years after Dragon Quest XI: Echoes Of An Elusive Age hit PC, a new edition is coming round with additions including new quests and the option to play this 3D JRPG as a retro-styled 16-bit 2D game. Pleasingly daft, that. Bearing the triple-barrelled name Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes Of An Elusive Age - Definitive Edition, this new version debuted on Nintendo Switch in…

Square Enix today announced Balan Wonderworld, a new 3D platformer from a team including two of Sonic the Hedgehog's creators - who also did Nights Into Dreams together. It'll send us through a weird theatre into the magical Wonderworld, where we'll run, jump, climb, and oh you absolutely better believe we'll collect some glowing gems. You know, platformer stuff.

Feature: What can I do for you?

Have You Played… Final Fantasy X-2?

I am not ashamed to admit that it was Final Fantasy X-2, not Final Fantasy X, that made me want to get a PlayStation 2. So fervent was my desire for this game that I even entered a text competition on the telly to try and win one. Needless to say, I was not successful. Still, it was just what I needed to push me…
