Final Fantasy XV Avoids Huge Day One Patch by … Delaying Release by Two Months

It's one or the other, really.

Game development is hard—almost as hard as keeping fans happy. In the case of Final Fantasy XV, the game has been delayed to make sure it's fully polished and doesn't require a patch on its launch day to make it suitably playable, which you may remember from a bygone era as "how game development works." You can't please everyone, though, and after a weekend of fan frustration, the delay isn't necessarily welcome news.

Pixelthreads: Why Are Japanese Games so Fashionable?

With a few exceptions, most of the games I have covered in this column have been made in Western countries. This hasn’t been intentional, nor does it really speak to my own gaming habits. In fact, most of the new titles I played this year were by Nintendo, and fashion played a pretty big part in this. Japanese-made games do tend to have a certain stylishness that Western games often lack.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Will Span Multiple Episodes to Fit Everything, Take All Your Money

I mean gil.

Over the weekend, Sony showed off footage from the upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake that fans have been begging to see for years, but it may not have been just an artistic choice from the trailer to show footage from the earliest section of the game.

A Newbie’s Guide to Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix

Get your sea salt ice cream right here.

I’ve never understood Kingdom Hearts. Around the time the first one came out, I was playing other role-playing games like Final Fantasy X.
