REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

ONE PIECE Unlimited World Red Review
"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

PREVIEWS Pillars of Eternity Preview
For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

Meteor Descends Upon FFXIV Signaling The End Of An Era, Captivating Trailer Released

Posted on Sunday, November 11 @ 08:37:23 Eastern by Jonathan_Leack

Out with the old, rusty, and flawed, and in with the new, they say.

Last night a meteor descended upon Final Fantasy XIV's world of Eorzea, an event that left disgruntled fans like myself giddy after two years of facepalming. Thousands of players gathered—as seen above—near capitol cities to mark their existence in Final Fantasy XIV's undoubtedly controversial timeline.

Not all was destroyed, though. The event also signaled the beginning of a new era laden with opportunity and modern mechanics which Square Enix has dubbed: A Realm Reborn. To add an exclamation point to the event, Square Enix released an absolutely remarkable trailer that was crafted by the talented group at Visual Works.


If you're like me and actually interested in whether or not Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is the modernization of the original game that we've been hoping for, here are a few highlights of what 2.0 will bring:
  • Completely restructured world.
  • An optimized graphics engine.
  • Two functional UIs (one for PC and one for PS3).
  • Addition of Arcanist and Summoner.
  • Chocobo raising.
  • Instanced housing.
  • Tons of added quests.
  • New notorious monsters.
  • Cross-server dungeon finder.
  • Additional summons including Titan and Odin.
  • Overhauled combat system.
  • PvP system.
  • New story.
  • Redesigned crafting/gathering system.
  • New dungeons and raids.
Even if you're someone like me with a bad taste in their mouth after the initial release of Final Fantasy XIV, Square Enix has shown that it's done enough to at least warrant your attention. Stay tuned for additional information as well as an official release date in the coming weeks.
