Final Fantasy 15: A Fan and a Newbie Play the First 4 Hours

Final Fantasy 15: A Fan and a Newbie Play the First 4 Hours

Here’s how Final Fantasy XV (or at least the version we’ve played) opens. Alongside the splash screens for developers, publishers and engines, a simple statement of intent, white-on-black: “A Final Fantasy for fans and first-timers.” It’s a fascinating little statement, at once an admission that this royal line of RPGs has started to suffer from a little too much aristocratic inbreeding (you need only look at the withered disc-children of the misguided Fabula Nova Crystalis saga to see the effects), and a “come at me, bro” throwdown. It’s a game aiming to be something to everyone – enough Final Fantasy to appease fans (say: me, Joe Skrebels), and enough something quite different to intrigue the chronically uninterested (say: him, Daniel Krupa).

Joke Half-Life 3 Ad Displayed at Gamescom

Joke Half-Life 3 Ad Displayed at Gamescom

A Half-Life 3 ad at Gamescom is turning heads, but it’s not the announcement you’ve been waiting for. Prominently placed at Gamescom’s North Entrance, the ad in question actually reads “Half-Life: 3” followed by the words “Editors who played it back then,” joking that three employees of the companies that took out the ad — Spieletipps and GIGA Games — once played the original Half-Life. Spieletipps and GIGA Games’ Half-Life 3 joke adContinue reading…

Lego Dimensions: Supergirl Mini-Fig Announced

Lego Dimensions: Supergirl Mini-Fig Announced

Warner Bros. has revealed today that Supergirl will be coming to Lego Dimensions as a pack-in minifigure character — but her availability will be limited. Starting this September for a limited time, a Supergirl mini-fig will be included as a bonus figure in the PlayStation 4 Lego Dimensions starter pack, which normally includes Batman, Gandalf, and Wyldstyle. Supergirl will be able to fly, shoot heat beams from her eyes, and will have X-ray vision. Kara Zor-El will also have the ability to transform into her Red Lantern form, allowing her to fire energy bolts and create Lantern energy constructs. Supergirl will be available in the game’s “Hire-a-Hero” feature following her debut, which allows players without mini-figs to sample characters in exchange for collected studs. Warner Bros. did not announce any other future availability for the Supergirl mini-fig outside of the starter pack. The character was leaked earlier this year, alongside Green Arrow.

John Williams Confirms He Will Score Star Wars Episode 8

John Williams Confirms He Will Score Star Wars Episode 8

Composer John Williams has confirmed to a crowd at a live concert he will soon begin work on Star Wars: Episode VIII. According to Masslive, Williams said he will begin work in a few weeks after seeing an early cut of the movie. Masslive reports Williams “said he accepted the invitation from Lucasfilm producer Kathleen Kennedy mainly because he was enchanted by actress Daisy Ridley’s portrayal of Rey and does not want another composer scoring her scenes.” Star Wars isn’t the only long running franchise Williams is staying attached to.
