Final Fantasy XV is now playable from ‘start to finish’


It’s kind of absurd to be getting up-to-the-minute updates on the development of a game, I know, but this is Final Fantasy XV — a game that was announced in 2006, and had rumors of cancellation for years on end.

According to developer Kitade Satoshi on the official forums, it is playable from start to finish, and that the first half of the game is basically done. At this point, the devs can now start assessing the overall package, and make adjustments as needed, as they’ve done with the demo version.

Everything is coming together, but more of that signature Square Enix fanfare is still on the way — the game isn’t even getting a release date until a special announcementevent in March 2016.

Final Fantasy XV trailer officially remixed to include less dad hugging


PlayStation Japan has released a new trailer for the upcoming Japanese role-playing game Final Fantasy XV and…wait a minute. This is just the awkward “Dawn” trailer from gamescom with more dramatic music, less silent dad-hugging, and more shots of the blonde woman.

I don’t get it. You’ve even shown off more new footage since. Even fishing. Why is there a remaster of a one and a half month old trailer? More appealing to Japanese audiences, maybe?

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 seems to be PS4-only in Japan


Japan has a habit of just focusing in on a few platforms rather than spreading the love around, which makes perfect sense when you put the Xbox One’s failure in that region into perspective. Koei Tecmo tends to not even release their games on Xbox One over in the east, but with their western localizations, we often see both PC and Xbox ports.

The same seems to be the case for Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. As spotted by Famitsu, the Japan-only trailer for the game sports a PS4 logo, whereas the international version gains the two aforementioned platforms.

Just a little bit of a heads-up for those readers currently in Japan!

Bandai Namco announces Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2


Fighting through multiple 404 errors, the countdown site for a mystery Dragon Ball project is now revealed to be Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2.

It’s being developed by DIMPS, and will debut sometime in 2016 on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One platforms. Bandai Namco notes that it’s going to take “full” advantage of current hardware this time around. New features include a new hub city, more customization. More info will arrive at E3, where the game is being shown.

I liked Xenoverse as much as the next guy but it just came out last year. Is Bandai Namco going for annual iterations here? There better be a lot of new features this time.

Dogmeat wins big at the World Dog Awards


Sometimes it’s easy to forget what’s important in life. This week we’ve had eighty billion VR headsets announced, and graphics cards that could probably punch a hole in the space-time continuum, and yeah, that’s exciting and all… but does it actually matter? Probably not.

There is only one this in this world that really matters, and that’s dogs. Bethesda has announced that River, the German shepherd that modeled and voiced Fallout 4’s Dogmeat, won the award for Top Videogame Dog at TheCW’s World Dog Award


The awards were back in January, so Bethesda is a bit late, but that’s not important. Just look at how happy that pooch is to have gotten a trophy! You won’t see that from a cold, lifeless VR headset.

If you’re curious as to who won Dog of the Year, meet Gabe, a therapy dog who supports wounded veteran Justin Lansford:

Fallout 4’s Automatron DLC looks…okay I guess


Bethesda has released the first trailer for their Fallout 4 Automatron DLC, set to release this month as the first part of the Season Pass. It now has a final date of March 22 on all platforms.

So far it literally just looks like a cheap mod, where various existing robot models battle each other. Cool on paper, especially if you love robots? Sure. But based on what Bethesda has told us, it old seems like a small storyline that will only keep us busy for a sort while.

It’s priced at $9.99.
