Dissidia Final Fantasy

Last week, the Japanese magazine Famitsu has confirmed that Firion, Cecil and Bartz from Final Fantasy II, IV and V will be coming back as playable characters in Dissidia Final Fantasy, the new entry of the series launching in Japanese arcades next month. Today, some new high quality screenshots have surfaced online, showcasing the three newly confirmed characters as well as some of the other previously confirmed ones.

The new Dissidia Final Fantasy showcase, together with the new characters, some previously confirmed characters such as Warrior of Light from Final Fantasy I, Onion Knight from Final Fantasy III, Terra from Final Fantasy VI and Cloud from Final Fantasy VII. These aren’t all the confirmed characters for the game, as we already know Lighting from Final Fantasy XIII and newcomer Y’shtola from Final Fantasy XIV will also be in the game. You can check out the new screenshots right below.

Last week the Japanese magazine Famitsu has also confirmed some new Dissidia Final Fantasy gameplay details. Some of the new mechanics will make the game feel different from the previous two entries of the series, such as the four different character types – Heavy, Shoot, Speed and Unique types – and more. The magazine has also detailed some of the changes and tweaks the team will implement for returning characters.

Last week’s issue of Famitsu confirmed that Dissidia Final Fantasy will be released in Japanese arcades next month. Not much is known about a possible Western release at the moment and we might not hear more about the matter until a console port is confirmed.

Dissidia Final Fantasy will launch in Japanese arcades on November 26th. While a console version hasn’t been confirmed, chances are high for a PlayStation 4 version as the arcade version uses the console’s hardware. A home console release, however, will only come sometime after the arcade version launches.

Or destruction, depending on his mood. Writing about video games was only the natural step for such a dangerous life.

Critics and fans alike went crazy for Amazon’s take on the famous role-playing game series Fallout. There were a lot of nominations for 16 Emmy awards, including Best Actor and Outstanding Drama Series. The show was able to reach audiences outside of gamers and got a lot of attention from the industry.

Eurogamer has been keeping track, and now that all the votes are in, Fallout is tied for fifth place with 23 nominations for the 76th Emmy Awards, which are put on by the US Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. With 25, The Bear has the most nominations, followed by True Detective: Night Country with 23, and Shogun with 19.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Walton Goggins is up for Best Actor for his performance as The Ghoul. Although games will always be our first choice, it’s great that adaptations of games don’t have to be awful, and we can’t wait for the next season of the shows.

Are you surprised by how well Amazon’s version of Fallout has done in the mainstream? Is the curse of movies based on video games finally over? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.
