Let's Re-cap Final Fantasy XIII Before Lightning Returns Comes Out
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 4th of February 2014 - 06:00 PM ]
Square Enix has given us a nice little recap of the whole story of Final Fantasy XIII up until now. Just in time for Lightning Returns. I am not one for the 'retro' gaming thing but I would be lying if I didn't get a kick out of the latest re-cap video for Final Fantasy XIII. It is all set up so that anyone who has yet to play Final Fantasy XIII or Final Fantasy XIII 2 can get a run down before Lightning Returns comes out and that they shouldn't need to play the other titles to be able to shell out their cash for the new game. Ok, so that was a lie. While the eight minute video for Final Fantasy XIII is a fun re-cap, there are so many things that are glossed over in the story here. Read More...

Here's All The Ways That Lightning Returns Final Fantasy XIII Has Evolved Combat
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Tuesday, 28th of January 2014 - 09:59 PM ]
Lightning Returns Final Fantasy XIII is bringing a lot of changes to the franchise with it. Here's a look at how the combat has evolved from the previous title. By now I am sure a good chunk of you have played the Lightning Returns Final Fantasy XIII demo on your respectful consoles. I know I have and I was intrigued and bothered by what I got to play. But this isn't a "review" or hand on kind of thing so we will save all of that for later. Yea I know, boo…hiss… I'll deal with it. Read More...

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Is Bringing Customization To A New Franchise High
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 17th of October 2013 - 10:52 PM ]
Here we go with some new gameplay for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. Not only is it gameplay though but it is a showcasing of some of the new locations, missions, combat, and customization you will be getting when it hits this February. Speaking on customization, to me that is the real focus here in the video with sub-title descriptions. I am not talking just changing some armor pieces or paradigms. From the looks of things we will get to customize our combat and quick attack methods by mapping specific attacks to the buttons on the controller for one. Read More...

Can't Wait For Lightning Returns FFXIII? Here's The Opening Cinematic
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 3rd of October 2013 - 05:15 PM ]
Man February 11th is so far off for all of us not living in Japan or willing to import Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. Wouldn't it be great if we could spoil the opening to the game well in advance of the official launch in Japan? You know it would be and I figured as much so here it is in all of its glory; in English at that. Now we don't have to wait or have to watch the dubbing/subtitled versions hitting the web shortly after the Japanese launch. In case you are worried about spoilers or anything, I wouldn't worry too much unless you are still playing through the first two games in the Final Fantasy XIII storyline. Read More...

It's Not Versus XIII, But We Have A New Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Trailer
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Friday, 7th of June 2013 - 10:32 PM ]
It looks like they were not kidding when Square Enix wanted to have the Final Fantasy XIII world run for years. We'll be moving into about 5 now with the release of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII and the hopes of Final Fantasy Versus XIII still looming around. There are again rumors that we will get some news on that at E3, but as I just said that is just rumor. That is also not what we are doing here right now either. Below we have a nice, what looks to be like, in-game E3 trailer for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. Read More...

Our main topic focuses on downloadable content (DLC) - where it originated, how it has evolved and how our expectations have changed over the recent past. Read More...

Aggrocast Episode Ninety Two: Coming Soon Q1
by Brian Bentley [ Wednesday, 1st of February 2012 - 04:54 PM ]
Episode 92 of the Aggrocast takes a different route as Corey and Brian are left to their own devices, which means the episode goes off the rails in the first couple minutes. All kidding aside, the guys go into what they've been playing including Puzzle Quest 2, Tiny Tower, Final Fantasy XIII, and Dungeon Defenders. There is no Care / Don't Care this week, but we still drop a Community Spotlight on Pwned Game Nights. The main topic for the episode revolves around Brian and Corey breaking down the major release schedule for the rest of the first quarter of 2012. Read More...

Hey…Come Check Out The New Visuals For Final Fantasy XIII-2
by Irene Collazo [ Thursday, 1st of December 2011 - 11:28 PM ]
Damn. You step away for a holiday and that's when everyone bombards you with new screens and video for their new game. I mean it's not like Final Fantasy XIII-2 is a huge game or anything so why all the hype over the holiday. Wait… It is…? Well shit the bed. Who would have thunk? Ok, joking aside now. So if you look below, there was a cornucopia of new visuals filled with new characters, monsters and some of the menus system. You know all the stuff any of us fans out there would be chomping at the bits, like the leftovers in the fridge, for. Read More...

It's About Time For Some New Final Fantasy XIII-2 Stuff
by Irene Collazo [ Thursday, 25th of August 2011 - 10:30 PM ]
Isn't it about time that we got a slew of new screen shots and such for Final Fantasy XIII-2? Not to mention a narration from the game's developers for the trailers that have been show to us in the past. Wouldn't that be a nice little update for the day? I think it would be, so I guess I'll do just that for you below. There is nothing too revealing on anything here except further proof of Square Enix doing an amazing job with visual effects in their games. As if we didn't already know that. Read More...

Final Fantasy XIII-2 Looks Amazing Even Without The Dress Sphere
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 30th of June 2011 - 04:21 PM ]
I swear that Square Enix has sold their souls to someone other than me. When it comes to making games look amazing, they are by far one of the leaders in video game visuals. Almost to the point it has to be supernatural. Try and name one of their Final Fantasy titles that did not look cutting edge for the time. I find that a difficult task, so I'll move on. If you have not skipped on to see the new screen shots yet, I thank you. Read More...

Please No Dress Spheres In Final Fantasy XIII-2
by David 'Hades' Becker [ Thursday, 20th of January 2011 - 07:44 PM ]
Well here is an interesting twist to the whole Final Fantasy XIII ten year plan. Just announced is the oddly named Final Fantasy XIII-2, a continuation to the story of FFXIII. I say it is odd because Square Enix tried this before with FFX-2 which didn't do as well as any of their wholly new story lined titles with Final Fantasy in the title. Yes I know I used the title way too many times there. Sue me. Read More...
