Sony started its PlayStation conference off big—Final Fantasy big.

It's telling that the trailer showed the logo for Square's development team Creative Business Unit III—the VP of that department is Naoki Yoshida...

This is interesting, Bethesda was purchased out by Microsoft for a cool 7.5 billion dollars. This is unprecedented as this includes the likes of Fallout, Doom, Elder Scrolls, Dishonored, Wolfenstein, and I may be missing some others. What do you think of this purchase?

EA recently ditched the Origin Access name, so it’s no surprise that the brand itself is being dropped.

Origin Access Premier, the more expensive tier exclusive to its own PC store, has also been renamed to EA Play Pro. Unifying EA’s subscription services under one banner certainly makes sense, and is aligned with the...

10. Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is not a perfect remake, suffering from some framerate hitching problems in the overworld and some dated design issues that could have used a bit of an update, but those issues seem relatively insignificant when you consider just how gorgeous and joyful this Switch remake is.
