Final Fantasy Dimensions

Posted on Updated on

There hasn’t really been a game in the last few years that truly recaptures that magic of the old-school Final Fantasy games. Sure, some have tried, but lackluster attempts and even progressive titles from Squeenix have fallen short, leaving FF gamers with a certain emptiness.

While Final Fantasy Dimensions on iOS – Sqaure Enix’s latest entry into the FF series – is a throwback to the old games, is it truly capable of bringing back the true feel of the games of yore? Find out after the jump.

Guild Wars 2 First Thoughts

Posted on Updated on

Like a lot of MMO fans out there, I’ve recently gotten into the new free-to-play Guild Wars 2 and I have to say – judging from what I’ve played so far – I’m pretty impressed. There’s a departure from some of the more stereotypical constraints of the average MMO, and it offers a lot of content for a game that has no subscription fee.

Avengers fans assemble!

A new iOS/Android Avengers game is coming titled Avengers Initiative, and it’s is deemed to be the “mobile gaming event of the year.”

Once you progress however, you’ll find a multitude of different units including airships, zeppelins, tanks and more coming across your screen, with varying levels of armor and speed. It gets hard…really hard.
