  • Blog Post: Fight For The Top 50 2014 - Thief

    Looking over the list of releases from 2014, I don't see a clear frontrunner for the hallowed Game of the Year honor, and a good majority of the year's highly hyped games received polarizing reviews from critics and gamers alike. I foresee many heated arguments erupting during our voting process... More

  • Blog Post: Opinion – Why Dragon Quest’s Future Looks Bleak In North America

    Lately, I've been thinking a lot about Dragon Quest. The traditional RPG franchise crafted the foundation for console RPGs, and even to this day, it evokes charm and nostalgia with its art style and famed slimes. I'm still captivated by it, even though the series hasn't gone through much... More
  • Blog Post: Opinion – Offering A Final Fantasy XV Demo Is A Step In The Right Direction For Square Enix

    The road to Final Fantasy XV has been long and winding. The game that started off as Final Fantasy Versus XIII was announced at E3 2006 and very little information surfaced about the title up until it transformed into Final Fantasy XV last year . In a way, it was gutsy move to make it a mainline title... More
  • Blog Post: TGS Sidequest: Dining At The Dragon Quest Restaurant

    On my trip to Japan, one of my most anticipated stops was to Luida's Bar, a restaurant devoted to all things Dragon Quest, located in Roppongi. Luida's Bar is a small, quaint place where the spirit and essence of Dragon Quest is alive and kicking. It's like being in a tavern from the games... More
  • Blog Post: TGS Sidequest: Final Fantasy XIV's Eorzea Cafe

    As a fan of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, I was delighted to learn about a restaurant themed after the game in Tokyo.

  • Blog Post: Our TGS Localization Wish List

    The hardest part about visiting Tokyo Game Show is seeing tons of games that are only slated for release in Japan. Of course that doesn't mean these games won't eventually come to the West.

  • Blog Post: Where is Final Fantasy XV?

    Many gamers are looking ahead to the next generation for exciting games, but for one of Square Enix’s most anticipated upcoming titles, we have to look backward.

  • Blog Post: Chronicles – Resuming A Completionist's Run In Just Cause 2

    When I play an open world game, I usually don't stop until I reach 100 percent completion. I've achieved this mark in every Grand Theft Auto and Elder Scrolls game, and I even spent far too much time snatching up every collectible in Sleeping Dogs and Saints Row 3. Just Cause 2 is one of those... More

    The future of the gaming industry is exciting, with a new generation of consoles in our homes and the promise of new experiences on the horizon.

  • Blog Post: Afterwords: Thief Devs Shed Light On Long Loads, Dishonored Similarities

    Thief is a fairly traditional stealth game that pays homage to its original series class roots.

  • Blog Post: Opinion – Square Enix Has A Lot To Prove To RPG Fans

    I’m often asked about Square Enix’s place in the modern RPG market. I feel conflicted on the subject.
