NieR: Replicant vers.1.22474487139… is bringing the cult 2010 RPG to PC

No, I didn't spill coffee on the keyboard. Yes, the ellipses are part of the title. 10 years after its console debut, NieR is heading to PC with the elegantly-titled Nier: Replicant vers.1.22474487139... - not a remake or a remaster, Square Enix insist, but a spruced-up re-release that's polishing up the audio, sprinkling in some new content, and finally bringing the cult-classic RPG to Steam.

Final Fantasy XIV is having a rent freeze even if your real landlord isn’t

Things are plenty uncertain enough with many folks' actual housing situation as they find themselves out of work while the Covid-19 coronavirus spreads. While you've got bigger real life concerns, at least you won't need to spare a worry for your in game real estate. Final Fantasy XIV has canceled automated demolitions of unattended player houses for the foreseeable future.

Tomb Raider is 100% off, yes free, until Monday

Welcome to the free games website where we tell you about all the games that are free. Here's another game that is (temporarily) free: Tomb Raider. Unlike the many demos and temporarily free to try games flying about right now, Tomb Raider is actually free to keep if you add it to your Steam account this weekend. Square Enix have put a 100% discount on Lara…

Gather your party and venture forth in Trials Of Mana’s free demo

The demo kicks off today and you don't need to fear spending too much time with it because you can carry your party and progress over to the full release…

The Final Fantasy 7 remake needs to give flowers the respect they deserve

Everyone from Taylor Swift to Tyler, The Creator has written a song about flowers. Fancy restaurants scatter them over melting chocolate bombes. Van Gogh even had a crack at painting some once, I believe. And after all, why not? Flowers bloom all around the world, and symbolise so much to so many different cultures. Final Fantasy is far from the only video game series to…

Final Fantasy 7 Remake’s full 5 minute intro movie is revealed

The Final Fantasy VII Remake is still about two months away—now scheduled for April 10th—but the marketing machine is spinning up and there's no stopping it now. We still don't know for sure if it's coming to PC but frankly I'll be shocked if it doesn't wind up in our hands when the year-long PlayStation exclusivity ends in 2021. Today Square Enix have shared the entire…

The Bulletstorm gang are showing more of Outriders, their new shooter

Following a terse announcement last E3, People Can Fly and Square Enix have started gabbing more about their new cooperative "RPG shooter", Outriders. Parts look gruff and grim and in a too-familiar way, a bit too mid-noughties, but then someone gets murdered so hard with blue beams that they're left a big ol' dancing skeleton and ah gwan I'll not rush to judge. I'll cut…

Feature: Dishonorable

Thief (2014) isn’t as bad as you remember, but gosh, no, it’s still not good enough

My agenda: I really wanted to return to 2014's hated Thief and prove that it never deserved the vitriol it received. My reality: before the game even started I was bombarded by a barrage of pop-up windows informing me which new heists and levels were available to me as DLC, and I started to hate it a bit already. So why this desire to defend…

Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers’ next patch is a giant robot rumble

Now that NieR: Automata has come and gone from Final Fantasy XIV, it's time to get back to business. Patch 5.2: Echoes Of A Fallen Star arrives later this month, driving forwards the main story and returning focus squarely to gods, empires and high-fantasy politicking. Naturally, that means it's time to fight a Gundam. What do you mean we don't get to pilot it?

Final Fantasy XV, Youngblood and a Bleeding Edge beta head to Xbox Game Pass for PC

Get in the car, punk. Xbox Game Pass for PC is about to pick up three new games, cramming Final Fantasy XV, Wolfenstein: Youngblood and Death's Gambit into the back seat of its subscription bandwagon. That's one banger, one bust, and one "huh, seems alright" jumping onto Game Pass' growing catalogue, still available at £1/$1 for three months if you're a first-time subscriber. But all…

By the by, Final Fantasy 7 Remake’s PS4 exclusivity now ends in April 2021

Square Enix still have not announced a release for Final Fantasy VII Remake on any system other than PlayStation 4, but they're certainly staying up to date with what they're not saying. They've recently updated the JRPG's box art to echo its recent one-month delay, now saying that it's a PS4 exclusive until April 10th, 2021. What happens then? Ah, who knows. Could be anything.…

Marvel’s Avengers and the Final Fantasy VII Remake have been delayed

Today, Crystal Dynamics revealed that Marvel's Avengers will be delayed by four months, while Square Enix announced that the Final Fantasy VII Remake's PS4 release date is delayed by a month (though the game isn't yet confirmed for PC, it seems likely after its year of PS4 exclusivity ends). The intended release date for Marvel's Avengers was initially set for the 15th of May, but…

The Deep End: a Final Fantasy nightmare – Part 2: Complete Success

As some of you will no doubt remember, when I joined this site I made a promise: that by the end of 2019, I would complete the game so good its subtitle comes before its series title: Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. Well guess what? I did it! With just half an hour to go until midnight on December 31, I hung up my bustus…

Platinum Games receive Tencent investment and promise other “big announcements” this year

Bayonetta and Nier: Automata developers Platinum Games have made a big announcement to start off the year - they've got themselves a partnership investment from Chinese conglomerate Tencent. With this, they might start self-publishing games. That's not all though. The company have even more in store for us in the coming months, including an update on upcoming game Babylon's Fall, and according to Platinum's president…

Here’s all the news and trailers from the Game Awards

Like a heavily-sponsored Santa Claus, the Game Awards swept in last night and left us a pile of presents to unwrap. If you did the smart thing and slept through the event, you'll have missed a bunch of new announcements. Alice O and Graham did some amazing work in writing up as much as they could as it happened, but a few sly games snuck…

Babylon’s Fall absolutely looks like a Platinum game

After its moody and information-light announcement at E3 2018, I wasn't sure what to make of Babylon's Fall. I expect slick, stabby, and slightly silly action from PlatinumGames, the makers of Bayonetta, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Vanquish, and Nier: Automata. Yet here was this murky fantasy game being presented like Dark Souls? A new trailer today showed some of the game and oh mate, this…

Final Fantasy VII Remake is a PS4 exclusive only for one year

Over the four years since Square Enix announced their Final Fantasy VII Remake for PlayStations, they've been mighty vague about where else they might release it and when. They still haven't confirmed a PC release but they have now made clear that the PS4 exclusivity is exactly one year long? After that? Oh, who knows. They'll probably just bin it. No strong feelings for anything…

Life Is Strange 2: Episode 5 verdict-o-chat (the end!)

Alice Bee: I have performed the summoning ritual (the ritual is: sending an email) and called errant skate boy Brendy back for one last job before retirement. It is, after all, time for the last episode of Life Is Strange 2, a harrowing road trip game about two brothers trying to make it from Washington state to Mexico. And since we started the journey together,…
