  2. Final Fantasy XIV Ends With an Epic Final Cutscene

    Final Fantasy XIV has had a tough life. Panned by critics and released at a time when the traditional subscription-based MMO is on the decline, Square Enix's second online adaptation of the classic RPG franchise undeniably fell flat, even by the relatively low standard set by cult classic Final Fantasy XI. This weekend is the game's so-called "grand finale," where loyal players can sign on and take giant, high-level boss battles before the servers shut down tonight at midnight, Pacific time. In honor of the game's "ending," Square Enix has released an extended cutscene to serve as the game's cinematic climax.

  6. E3 Day 3 In Review, and the Best Game of E3

    It’s been a wild ride at my first and hopefully not last (anybody in the media want to hire me?) Electronic Entertainment Expo. I got to play a ton of great games and it feels strange knowing that I won’t be able to play unreleased titles when I go back to real life. I anticipate a severe withdrawal period and a whole lot of checking and rechecking release dates for everything I saw at E3 that I now can’t wait to own. But it wouldn’t be a real day at E3 if I didn’t add some more games to that list of must-haves. Here’s a rundown of everything that I played today, from the great to the greater.
