Hitman GO VR won’t be available on the HTC Vive

If you've ever wanted to play a video game that's modeled like a board game, that's based on a popular video game franchise, then Hitman Go is the game for you. The game is an interesting turn-based take on the Hitman games, which has you carefully analyzing every aspect of a level while carefully planning your next move. And soon you'll be able to play it in VR.

Tomb Raider II gets stunning Unreal Engine treatment

Tomb Raider II gets stunning Unreal Engine treatment

The original Tomb Raider games were among the first great shooter/adventure games for consoles. Sure, there were others before, but Tomb Raider created a legacy that is still loved, and is still getting built upon to this day. Unfortunately, like most games released in the 90's, the graphics really haven't held up. But someone is trying to fix that.

Kingdom Hearts mobile game coming to the US on 7th April

Kingdom Hearts mobile game coming to the US on 7th April

Last year at E3, Square Enix both surprised and perhaps briefly irked its fans. A good number were expecting the announcement of Kingdom Hearts 3, which indeed happened later. However, Square Enix prefaced it with the revelation of a Kingdom Hearts mobile game, which misled some into believing that the company has betrayed them for a quick mobile buck. Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ, as it was finally revealed, was happily a completely different game for iOS and Android. Half a year after that title launched in Japan, Square Enix will be bringing it to North America this week.

Final Fantasy XV gets an anime spinoff, movie, new trailer

Final Fantasy XV gets an anime spinoff, movie, new trailer

Final Fantasy XV is a big, nay a huge, thing for Square Enix. It is the biggest non-MMORPG installment of the game since "Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII" in 2013 (which, to be precise, is simply a sequel to the 2009 Final Fantasy XIII). It will also be a major departure from previous titles in terms of gameplay and combat. You know that it's really a big deal for the company when, in addition to announcing the launch date and a new trailer with a poignant cover, Square Enix is revealing a whole "universe" around it, including a prequel anime series, a full-length CG film, and even a mobile game spinoff.

Square Enix to bring diorama-esque Hitman Go to PC, PS4, Vita

Square Enix to bring diorama-esque Hitman Go to PC, PS4, Vita

For gamers, the Hitman franchise has always been about stealthily killing your adversaries and targets. Usually, these types of games took on a real-time first person perspective to add to the atmosphere of an anxiety and excitement. But in early 2014, Square Enix turned what was then its newest Hitman title on its head and slapped it on what is best described as a pretty board game. Perhaps riding on the fanfare surrounding the upcoming Hitman title, the game publisher will be taking Hitman GO from mobile to your PC and favorite console or handheld.

Hitman Absolution is getting the Xbox One treatment

Hitman Absolution is getting the Xbox One treatment

One thing that's always made me enjoy playing games on a PC is the fact that there are very few games that I can't go back and play whenever I want, on the same machine I play new titles on. With consoles, the ability to play older games on new hardware has been spotty, at best. Microsoft has been doing a good job of making Xbox 360 titles available since they announced the feature last year. And it looks like we have another new (old) games to look forward to.

Final Fantasy IX is now available on iOS and Android

Final Fantasy IX is now available on iOS and Android

Just a couple weeks ago, Square Enix made a surprising move. We know that they've been working on remakes and remasters of various Final Fantasy titles, but one we hadn't heard about was IX. So when they showed off the game running on a mobile device, people went nuts.

Square Enix teases Final Fantasy IX for mobile

Square Enix teases Final Fantasy IX for mobile

At the start of the year, Square Enix made a rather surprising reveal. That Final Fantasy IX would be coming to PCs is perhaps expected. That it would also be coming to mobile, both iOS and especially Android, was, perhaps the publisher's late Christmas gift (or early, depending on when it actually arrives) to fans. While still thin on launch details, Square Enix is now giving fans yet another appetizer, showing FF IX "in action" action on a mobile device, in a preview delivered over an almost two-hour long news style presentation.

Final Fantasy IX coming to PC, mobile, FF XV to launch 2016

Square Enix has definitely brought good cheer to its fans on almost all gaming platforms in current use. Not only did it reveal that Final Fantasy IX, a hidden gem in the series, is coming to PC and mobile devices, both iOS and Android, Hajime Tabata, game director of the upcoming Final Fantasy XV game, has publicly committed to a 2016 launch of the title. Of course, it might be too early to celebrate, but at least it gives a sliver of hope to fans on all those gaming devices.

Final Fantasy XIII character is Louis Vuitton’s newest model

Final Fantasy XIII character is Louis Vuitton’s newest model

As absurd as it seems, yes, you read that headline right. Louis Vuitton, the world-famous luxury fashion brand, has tapped Lightning, the heroine of Square Enix's Final Fantasy XIII series, as their latest model in a new advertising campaign. To be clear, this is not a real human model that was made up with pink hair to resemble the video game character, but the actual digital creation rendered with fashion items such as expensive handbags.

Super Mario RPG hits the Wii U Virtual Console

Super Mario RPG hits the Wii U Virtual Console

Back in the mid-90's, Japanese-style RPG's were starting to gain popularity in the US. However, there was one game that probably did more for the genre than any other. I'm of course talking about Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. By creating an RPG that featured characters that we all know and love, it was an easy game for many to get into. And it's making its way back to peoples' homes.
