Games of 2015 : Final Fantasy Type-0 HD & Final Fantasy XV: Episode Duscae

Type-0 Episode Duscae

The Final Fantasy brand once commanded prestige and attention and whenever a new Final Fantasy game was announced, the world would stop still and take notice.

Dark Souls 2 was released last year and while it was a great game in its own right, fans were decidedly divisive in their opinions. Some felt that it was too similar and provided nothing new and that the environments weren’t as immersive and atmospheric while others felt it built upon an already excellent game. But what was certain was the unanimous excitement when Hidetaka Miyazaki announced his next game, Bloodborne.

A look back at 2014 Pt.1

We are finally in 2015 and this blog is still around….somewhat. I won’t promise anything but I do have some sort of schedule/plan in mind that will hopefully mean that this blog will be updated more frequently this year. I did start this blog mainly as a gaming blog and it will stay that way for the most part. Moving forward however, I might write about my other interests (Gunpla/music) as well.
