Square Enix announced a new mobile game called Hitman Go was in the works in February. This week Square Enix has announced that the game is now available for iOS gamers to download and play. If you are familiar with the Hitman franchise, this game is much different from the shooter/strategy game you remember.
Final Fantasy XIV has been on the PS3 game console for a while now. Square Enix started talking about a PS4 version that would be coming to the next gen console and not too long ago the beta for that PS4 version of the game started up. One of the cool things that Square Enix is allowing for gamers that upgraded from the PS3 to the PS4 console is the ability to take the progress you made in your PS3 version with you.
If there was one game I did not expect to be playing this week, it was a person vs person vampire-themed free-for-all online title from Square Enix called Nosgoth. This game isn't your traditional shoot-em-up game, nor is it a horror flick. It's somewhere in-between, and it's going to be completely free to play once it's released outside of Beta mode later this year.
This week we're taking a look at the bigger picture when it comes to reviews of the game Call of Duty: Ghosts. When we first published our (still in progress) review of Call of Duty: Ghosts earlier this year, it was shocking to see how big of a backlash was issued at the hands of gamers that'd purchased the title and disagreed with our (mostly positive) assessment on a level so great that we were accused of publishing a paid review (which, for the record, we never, ever do.) Here we're taking a peek at some of the biggest complaints users have with the game.
Though for many hardcore PC or game console gamers, the idea that the Hitman franchise would go to the mobile platform is nothing short of blasphemy, Square Enix is suggesting this week that they've got something unique on their hands. Literally saying "yes we said it: tablet/smartphone: let us explain", Square Enix Montreal went on this week to say that this game will be developed completely separately from the AAA Hitman title being created right now bi Io-Interactive.
We're in an era of reboots in the greater gaming universe, that's for certain, and games like Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition are taking the term as lightly as possible in an upgrade from one year to the next. Like the current trend in seasons of a smartphone, Square Enix has opted to suggest: if it isn't broken, just make it look better. While we never really saw any iteration of Tomb Raider in 2013 as a title that needed some visual finessing, here it's made rather clear: sometimes you don't know what you want until it's been given to you.
When you think about the South Park play on the release of next-generation's consoles in the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4, you get the idea that they - really - aren't all that much better. According to the folks behind the epic modern version of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, Matt Stone and Trey Parker are (keeping in mind that they're humorists) dead wrong. Here we're having a peek at what it really means to take a game released to the PlayStation 3 and re-release it to PlayStation 4, fully revamped - in the graphics department, at least.
Square Enix is probably best known by gamers for the Final Fantasy game franchise. This week the company has announced that it intends to create new gaming experiences through what it calls Project Flare. Project Flare is a breakthrough in cloud game architecture according to Square Enix.
One of the most popular game franchises that Square Enix ever produced is Final Fantasy. The video game franchises in its 14th iteration and recently gamers trying to take advantage of the new game have ran into some serious problems with server uptime. That means that some of the people who purchased the game and were trying it out under their free trial were unable to get online and play.
