I’m a big fan of The Sims 4 gallery

When it comes to player created content in The Sims, I used to be one of those players who only went for original items created by players. I didn’t want to visit the official exchanges to get Sims or homes made by other people with pieces included in the base game, because I figured it more »

Skyrim Mods converge, create an odd journey

I mentioned in my last article that there was a mod called “Live Another Life”, which gave you an alternate start in your Skyrim game. There’s another Skyrim mod that adds onto that, called “Random Alternate Start”. It’s the exact same thing, only it lets you pick a starting equipment kit, and then places you more »

The Goat Simulator iOS and Android versions are wreaking havoc everywhere

Those concerned about the hooved, horned, and prehensile-tongued menace that is the goat should probably avoid iTunes and Google Play for a few weeks. The Goat Simulator iOS and Android ports are here. They’ve popped up inexplicably and without warning, and we all will have to face the prospect of people we know acting like more »

Everyone wins if Square Enix helps Steam become a JRPG destination

Square Enix is bringing Final Fantasy XIII to Steam. We all have mixed feelings about this. The other day, Final Fantasy IV also hit Steam. We have less mixed feelings, with a touch of apathy because that freakin’ game is on like, everything. But that’s not all. Trails in the Sky debuted on Steam recently, more »

Alternate Skyrim start? My pleasure!

Have you ever wondered what it might be like if you could start Skyrim at a different point than “sentenced to death for unknown crimes”? Maybe you wanted to start in Rorikstead as Erik the Slayer’s childhood friend? Perhaps you wanted to start shipwrecked on an island somewhere? There’s a mod for that. It’s called more »

The TGS 2014 Silent Hills trailer doesn’t excite me like I wish it would

Now, I’m the first to admit that I’m not huge in the horror genre. The first time I played Silent Hill, I was a little too young to really appreciate it, and kept being annoyed that it wasn’t Resident Evil. I was more prepared to enjoy Silent Hill 2, and did so immensely. But we more »

Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition on discs in about 2 weeks

Sony has good news for people who are still leary of the all-digital future. People who prefer to have a disc-based library can enjoy the Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition soon. Physical copies of the game will be here before you know it. Well, not exactly before we know it. The PS4 version of Minecraft will more »

Stop forcing FFXIII on us, Square Enix

We’ve made up our minds about Final Fantasy XIII. It’s been four years since FFXIII, two since FFXIII-2, and we saw Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII earlier this year. Admittedly, the installments did get better as the trilogy went on, but that doesn’t change one, important thing. People already know about the FFXIII trilogy. We’ve more »

Final Fantasy XV’s a open-world, diesel punk, road trip game? Yes!

I don’t do a lot of modern gaming. My most recent console is my PS2, and even my computer is a two year old laptop that only barely runs Skyrim with the high res pack. So I don’t pay much attention to the latest and greatest video game news. But, when someone showed me the more »

TGS 2014: Vita is technically getting Final Fantasy Type-0 too

Square Enix made a lot of enemies when it announced Final Fantasy Type-0 HD was a at E3 2014. Vita and PSP owners were incensed, since the game made its debut there and there had been huge fan campaigns designed to convince the company there was a market for this particular game outside of Japan. more »

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call Yuffie DLC is worth the $1

I’m playing Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call right now, but it’s fair to say I’m obsessing over it. This is a huge game, with 221 included songs and over 60 characters, which is a mind-boggling scope. So much so, that some may wonder if Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call DLC is worth it. (Especially since more »
