One day in the late 1990s, Myria walked into the Irvine High School computer room and spotted a boy playing Final Fantasy V. There were two unusual things about this. The first was that Final Fantasy V had not actually come out in the United States. To play the 1992 Japanese game in English, you’d have to download a…
I like plenty of things about Final Fantasy XV, but the map and menus are not among them. This game’s interface is a mess of nonsense so carelessly taped together that it defies logic or comprehension.
Running around, bashing down doors with a giant sword in hand is generally frowned upon in modern society. So if you’re dealing with a secret He-Man fantasy you’re dying to live out, why not fill your pocket with a bunch of tiny swords that can open doors without destroying them?
You’re four years old, maybe five. Your parents got one of those Nintendos that everyone’s been raving about, along with a brand new game. A role-playing game.
If you were worried the World of Final Fantasy PlayStation 4 (and Vita) demo would spoil the full game experience, you can stop. The standalone demo is just a quick romp through the game’s mechanics with a special treat at the end.
You’ve gotta wonder how much it cost to make Noctis’s hair. I mean, look at it. It’s a tangled black crown of spikes that sometimes seems to have a will of its own, its strands flowing like octopus tentacles every time Noctis moves. How many animators did Square Enix hire just for those sweet locks?
There’s a scene in Final Fantasy IV that’s always stood out to me. It centers around the elderly wizard Tellah, who starts off with a puny library of magic but eventually, thanks to divine intervention and a magical house of mirrors, remembers that he’s actually a talented badass with access to every spell in the game.
“Final Fantasy, bitch!”
Announced at tonight’s Uncovered event, Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV is a free five-episode anime prequel being released on YouTube, leading up to the game’s September 30 release. Check out the first episode below.
My second and final full day at my very first Toy Fair 2016 in New York City has come and gone, and already I miss it terribly. Nothing flipping through photos of Nerf guns, Pokemon plushies, Final Fantasy figures, Monster High dolls, Transformers, Marvel heroes and more can’t fix.
It’s not that you’re not observant. It’s just the folks at GameXplain are hyper-observant, which is why they notice things like trash strewn in the streets and Midgar’s window-to-AC unit ratio.
Today at the PlayStation Experience we got our first real look at the Final Fantasy VII remake, which is currently slated for 2123 or so. It’s looking real good. Also: real-time combat?
Last night I started playing Final Fantasy VI, a video game about suplexing locomotives. I had never played it before.
Final Fantasy VII, a video game about an angry man with mommy issues, will come to iPhone and iPad tonight with the next Apple Store update, publisher Square Enix announced today.
There’s something incredibly fun and irreverent about breaking all-time classic video games, isn’t there? That’s the reason Ocarina of Time is so popular to speedrunners—and it’s why I love watching people figure out how to totally dismantle Final Fantasy VI.
Don’t expect the upcoming remake version of Final Fantasy VII to be exactly the same game you remember excitedly talking to your friends about over the school lunch table.
Eighteen years and three PlayStations later, Final Fantasy VII is getting a remake. A real one. For PlayStation 4, with other platforms to follow.
It's been three weeks since I first played through the demo for Final Fantasy XV, a video game about what will happen to One Direction now that Zayn's gone. So I've had plenty of time to digest.
The best moments in Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, a new role-playing game that is just as clunky as its title suggests, come not from the main path but from the things you can do during the breaks.
