Final Fantasy 7: Remake

To be honest I haven’t been looking forward to writing this review, never has the phrase “Be careful what you wish for” been more true. Ever since 2005 when Square Enix released a tech demo of Final Fantasy 7 I have been praying for a remake, and never have I been more disappointed to get what I asked for. All they had to do was remake Final Fantasy 7 in gorgeous modern graphics, hell, I would hav...[Read More]

Persona 5: Royal

This review has been a while coming because the majority of the new story content is at the end of the game (not that I’d know but we’ll get to that) and I didn’t want to plagiarise my Persona 5 (classic) review. But after 100 + hours and an R.S.I in my wrist I think I am finally ready to reveal my true self! I mean reveal my opinion, sorry, it’s been a long 100 hours. The plot remains largely unc...[Read More]

Why Persona 5: Royal is worth the asking price

When Persona 5: Royal was first announced I was sceptical, don’t get me wrong, I loved the idea of more Persona 5 and was only too happy to pry open my wallet and pay a little extra for additional content. But my hype train halted in its tracks when I found out that rather than paying an extra £15 or £20 for a DLC pack, I would have to shell out £40 and re-purchase the game. To me it just seemed g...[Read More]

Final Fantasy VII: Remake Demo

I haven’t exactly been silent about my concerns for the Final Fantasy VII remake. From the way Square Enix have decided to carve it up so they can sell us one game three times to the new combat system that is completely different from the original, I have made my displeasure known. So when I found out that Square Enix had released a demo I thought this was a perfect way to ease some of my concerns...[Read More]

Final Fantasy VIII: Remastered

Final Fantasy is one of those series I have always wanted to be able to say I’ve completed at least one game from. Yes, I should get better life goals. Unfortunately, a lack of patience or talent for inventory systems has left me very much an outcast in the on-going conversation around one of video game’s most beloved fandoms. If I’m being completely honest, I first purchased a Final Fantasy game ...[Read More]

5 RPG Characters We Hate Having In Our Party

Who doesn’t love a good RPG? Serial killers and Trump voters that’s who, I mean you get to embark on an amazing journey and experience a fantastic story all while battling the forces of evil. Of course what would an RPG be without companions, well, it would be The Witcher, but that’s beside the point. Most great RPGs allow you to recruit party members to help aid you in your quest to stop the end ...[Read More]

Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom Delayed

So, it looks like it’s bad news for fans of Ni no Kuni, not to mention JRPG fans in general as it was revealed today that Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom will be postponed until 19th January 2018. While I’m sure this will disappoint some fans, they can take comfort in the fact that, according to Akihiro Hino (CEO and President of LEVEL-5 Inc), more development time is required in order to deliver ...[Read More]

Final Fantasy XV

So we have had our first taste of what Square Enix has in store for us on the current gen systems (Final Fantasy wise I mean) and I have to say I am pretty impressed, and I do not say that lightly because quite frankly I was not at all impressed by what I was seeing in the years leading up to this games release. To me it looked like four, identically dressed guys in a car, it didn’t have that spar...[Read More]

Final Fantasy VII

So, with news of Final Fantasy VII finally getting a remake, I felt it was time to dust off the PlayStation One, dig out my old copy and replay it for the 20th time. But then I thought to myself, “bollocks to that, it’s the future!”, so I downloaded to my PSP, so I could play it on the go and quite frankly, it hasn’t been out of my hands. You see Final Fantasy games require a lot of your time, (we...[Read More]
