Deus Ex GO gives cyberpunk a diorama-esque board game flair

Deus Ex GO gives cyberpunk a diorama-esque board game flair

Square Enix definitely has a new-found obsession for turning its franchises into "turn-based puzzle games", a.k.a. board games. Perhaps emboldened by the success of Hitman GO and Lara Croft GO, the game publisher is giving the same treatment to another major title: Deus Ex. Capitalizing on the upcoming launch of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Deus Ex GO will cater to mobile gamers who might not have that much time or resources for a full on Deus Ex game but still want to be immersed in the fictional cyberpunk universe of the game.

World of Final Fantasy brings cute to PS4, Vita in October

World of Final Fantasy brings cute to PS4, Vita in October

The Final Fantasy series is popular mostly for its gripping story lines and memorable characters, no matter the visual form they come in. Whether it be the small, pixelated graphics of NES/SNES titles, the blocky 3D bodies of Final Fantasy VII, or the near realistic visuals of more recent installments, fans have flocked to Final Fantasy titles no matter what. Square Enix is probably banking on that loyalty when it launches "World of Final Fantasy", which will almost be hard to take seriously because of how adorable the characters look.

Anki OVERDRIVE adds hulking big rig Supertrucks to its roster

Toys-to-life isn't dead, at least not yet. That is somewhat the hidden message that Anki is sending the market as it launches two new additions to its AI-controlled fleet of toy cars. These Supertrucks, the flaming red X52 and the cool green Freewheel, are meant to mimic the menacing forms of their real world big rig counterparts. However, they are able to accomplish what real, giant trucks should never be allowed to do: race on the road at neck breaking speeds and cause other vehicles around it to veer off the road to their demise.

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst DRM locks you out if you upgrade your computer too many times

One of the nice things about PC gaming is the fact that over time you can upgrade your system piece-by-piece, in order to achieve better performance. This means faster load times, better graphics, and higher resolutions. Unfortunately, it also means heavy-handed DRM that can lock you out of your favorite games.

Final Fantasy XII remaster brings Zodiac jobs to PS4 next year

Final Fantasy XII remaster brings Zodiac jobs to PS4 next year

Not all Final Fantasy titles are created equal. Some, like Final Fantasy VII and its characters, are forever memorialized in gaming history. The pre-VII titles, while pixelated by today's standards, also enjoy renown, especially among veterans. Final Fantasy XII might not exactly be one of the best, though it certainly won many accolades, but it will, perhaps, be more remembered for the many gameplay changes, some of which found their way to later titles. PlayStation 4 owners will soon be able to experience those when the "Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age" lands on the console in 2017, with that so-called Zodiac Job System in tow.

Minecraft Pocket Edition 0.15 dubbed the Friendly Update

Mojang has just announced the beta release of version 0.15 of Minecraft Pocket Edition for Android, iOS, and Windows 10. But while the game maker, now owned by Microsoft, is mostly spilling all the beans about the update, it has fiendishly dropped a morsel that fans will be chewing while they wait for the final release. Mojang has christened the upcoming update as "The Friendly Update", but leaves that friendliness as a matter of speculation for players to fight over.
