Final Fantasy: Type-0 HD revives an action-packed offshoot for a new audience

On Wednesday afternoon, I had the opportunity to demo a slate of upcoming games from Square Enix, the ever-expanding publisher / developer behind some of the most iconic franchises in the industry. As expected, the company has all of its bases covered once again in 2014, but a few titles stand out, compelling curious fans of the studio to experience something that breaks from tradition.

Xbox chief explains how future updates will make the console more personal than ever before

If there’s one thing that Microsoft has excelled at over the past year, it’s providing the Xbox One with a constant stream of significant updates. After a rocky pre-launch campaign that arguably doomed the Xbox One to fall behind the PlayStation 4 on the sales charts, Microsoft’s console slowly caught up with and eventually surpassed the PS4 in terms of added functionality.

The media player is just the latest example of this, but in an interview with The Inner Circle Podcast, Xbox head Phil Spencer made it clear that there’s still plenty on the way. More →

For such a young console generation, Driveclub has a surprisingly checked past. After several delays and some unfortunate disruption at Evolution Studios, Driveclub is finally coming to the PlayStation 4, 11 months after its original release date. It’s hard to say whether or not it benefitted from the added development time, but all in all, the team has put together something that is sure to satisfy the restless PS4 owners who can’t wait to get back behind the wheel.
