Square Enix has had one busy weekend, with the Final Fantasy XIV Fan Festival giving us lots of big news, with regards to its MMO that successfully relaunched last August under the same name. The new expansion is set to take place in Ishgard, which current players may remember scraping the surface of in the Coerthas Central Highlands. Alongside the typical features of  an increased level cap, and spells to go along with said increased cap, players are also earning the ability for their Free Companies (guilds) to construct their own airships. Also included are both a new Dark Knight job, and a currently unannounced race.

While we haven’t heard anything at the Las Vegas show with regards to the plans for the Golden Saucer and its implementation of Chocobo Racing, we are told that more information is to come from the London show on October 25th, and the Tokyo show from December 20th. Heavensward: Final Fantasy XIV is expected to go live in Spring of 2015.

Before then, however, is the release of patch 2.4 “Dreams of Ice” featuring the new primal fight of Shiva, while introducing players to the new class of Rogue and its job-extension into Ninja. Familiar bosses Typhon and Ultros and a few new dungeons are also expected to make appearances when this patch goes live on October 28th. (more…)

Life Is Feudal: Your Own is an interesting mix of survival game concepts that is shaping up to be a quality title to enjoy.

Currently on Steam in early Alpha, many players have already decided to give it a go and boost the game to the number one Top Seller spot on the store. It’s really quite interesting, mostly due to it’s context menu. In general, Life Is Feudal has a realistic landscape look, while holding a Minecraft like digging system for looking for ore. (more…)

Dating Sims are a sort of game you can really just sit back and enjoy. Sometimes they play out like Visual Novels and just let you read along with the story. Otherwise like Fading Hearts give you choices as you get further in that allow you to craft the story to your liking… Or just ignore it altogether and slay monsters in the woods with Dragon Quest like combat. I’m only a little ways in so far, but it seems like a game I’ll be spending quite some time with. Especially with different choices to explore. (more…)
