Final Fantasy 14 is getting a TV series based on a son buying a copy of the MMO and setting it up for his father to play. The son secretly helps his father with his in-game avatar without revealing his identity.  He also documents how he is reconnecting with his father in a different way.

Square Enix is know for doing promotional cross overs with other entries in the Final Fantasy series. Recently Final Fantasy 15 had a Nissin Cup Noodle hat in Japan as DLC, while Final Fantasy 14 has had Final Fantasy 11, Dragon Quest and Yo-Kai Watch crossovers. Seeing something like this especially on Netflix is huge. They are opening the door for content to be made in new ways.

The story is based on a true story with a modern twist. Watching a father and son bond over a video game is quite a surprise. Normally parents in the Japanese culture are strict on studying and schooling with very little time for gaming.

Final Fantasy 14 has gone through a lot of changes since it’s release in 2010. After negative feedback and low player base, the game was rebooted in 2013. The MMO continues to grow with constant updates and it’s upcoming second expansion, Stormblood releasing on June 20,2017.

Daddy of Light will be exclusive to Netflix. Announced to premiere sometime in April for Japan and fall for the West. Watch the sneak peak below.

I was born with bits in my blood. Rally racing getting my tires covered in blood. Started with a Nintendo Nes. I love all systems, can't choose which is the best. If you held a Zapper to my head, I'd just say Gamecube even though its dead. We went full circle from carts to blu rays right back to carts. Even had that debacle of are games art? I'm forever ready for my next adventure, now let's push start.

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.

Raiden, the famous shmup series, will come back as a twin-stick shooter on PS5, PS4, and PC

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.
