CD Projekt Red have recently announced plans to update The Witcher 3 with a new game+ mode. This is amazing news, because if any game could take the most advantage of such a game mode, it would be the mighty Witcher 3! Two key points to remember for the game+ mode, are that all enemies will be leveled-up to 30. This also means that if you completed the game below level 30, you’ll automatically be...

Last night, Witcher 3 received the huge 7.6GB update (1.07 patch) that added the welcomed addition of storage boxes. Geralt can now view the map, locate the nearest ‘stash’ symbol (a large, green storage box) and head there to unload or pack extra weapons and items. This new Stash update makes collecting alchemy ingredients, much easier. It also adds ease to the collection of tools and...

One thing that made the classic PlayStation JRPG release so compelling, was its simple materia system. If there’s just one thing that most RPG fans can agree on, it’s that Final Fantasy 7 had the magic system nailed. But will we see it in Square’s Final Fantasy 7 Remake? The 1997 classic not only offered the most easy to use magic system, it also worked incredibly well with Final Fantasy...

Should the FFVII remake us...

Combat is the key element of a Final Fantasy RPG. Whether you’re speeding through the story and only fighting when you need to (good luck with that!) or playing it safe and grinding wherever you can, battles are what you’ll spend most of your time doing. The question is, how will Square approach this in the Final Fantasy VII remake? While many of you may be thinking it’s a...

Final Fantasy VII is being remade! Millions of JRPG fans around the world will be waiting to click a ‘pre-order’ button…but will this truly mean ‘Remake’? Will ALL the cherished features of the PlayStation classic make it to the next-gen version, or will Square’s recent obsession to ‘westernise’ everything, add (or subtract) from the perfect formula?...

E3 2015 may be without new hardware announcements but it’s still quite possibly be the best Electronic Entertainment Expo of all time! First, we had the Final Fantasy VII remake announcement and now, Shenmue 3 has finally be handed the opportunity it deserves! The additional surprise here, is that Shenmue 3 will be Kickstarter funded. So, why did Yu Suzuki choose crowd funding? The first (and main)...

Access Games No Longer Own...

The Xbox 360 saw possibly one of the most unique and open horror games ever, with Deadly Premonition. The game (developed by Access Games and published by Rising Star in the EU) even holds a Guinness World Record as a ‘critically polarizing survival horror game’. Fast forward 3 years and Deadly Premonition was given the ‘Directors Cut’ treatment. New scenes, DLC content and various...

RPG Next-Gen – A clo...

Very few things can compete with the hype of a true next-gen Final Fantasy. While the 13th entry may have been a let-down for many (simply extracting one too many cherished foundations), screenshots, Famitsu previews and YouTube footage, have certainly helped relight the fire under Square’s next AAA RPG – Final Fantasy XV. Five million polygons per frame, a character max of 100,000 polygons...
