Picture of the characters from the RPG, Final Fantasy XV

Gladius, Prompto, and Ignis do want they want.

I have a grievance. My last two role-playing games (RPG) experiences – Final Fantasy XV and Mass Effect Andromeda – are not satisfying me. They are great games and fun to play but the action-oriented focus of both sacrifices a key aspect of the genre – control.

This loss of control doesn’t happen when I’m playing as a lone wolf type of character. In games like Fallout or the Witcher, you’re the all-powerful hero who can conquer anything by yourself. However, when you are given a party or squad, you’re their leader. You’re supposed to direct them on the battlefield and tell them what to do. Except, recent RPGs have made your party autonomous. They do as they please and you have little say.  Continue reading

Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Remix comes out September 13 on PS3.

According to Polygon, Tetsuya Nomura, creator of the Kingdom Hearts franchise, is very much interested in adding Star Wars and Marvel to the Kingdom Hearts series. He states:

Of course it would be great if we could add those licenses as well.

But there are lots of rules and restrictions by Disney so we can’t actually put in everything people want.

So it’s a quite difficult decision but we’re gonna prepare some surprises for you so, just wait for the information.

While this may mean very little towards becoming an actual reality, all it takes is a little spark to cause an uproar. With Nomura saying he is interested in having those characters and worlds in the game, let the fan art commence, the rant videos begin and keep the fans dreaming. In fact, start here. What Star Wars and Marvel character would you like to see in the next Kingdom Hearts?

According to Gematsu, a scan in Jump magazine reveals a “new episode” for the HD remake of Final Fantasy X and X2. The website states:

It will be a 30-minute drama at the end credits of the game, featuring new cast and character voices.

For now that is all that is known, the game arrives sometime this fall for the PS3 and PS Vita.

Perhaps the most drastically different entry within the main series, Final Fantasy XV (formally Final Fantasy Versus XIII) looks better than expected. Like Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy XV is an Action RPG rather than the series’ normally Turn Based outings. Looking at the action heavy game play, this could turn out to be the most accessible Final Fantasy to date. No word if Final Fantasy XV still connects to Final Fantasy XIII within the Story, but the change might benefit Square Enix in the end.

Final Fantasy XV is coming to the Playstation 4 and the Xbox One.
