Final Fantasy

What makes or breaks an offline game?

What makes a perfect offline experience in a game? I could go into story and world development, and say that’s what truly makes a wonderful experience, but while I do find these elements to be essential, sometimes they just aren’t enough to pull the game along.

What if FFXIV wasn't an MMO

Why?
It’s easy to find a reason to turn a normal offline game into an MMO. I mean, who doesn’t want to play with friends in their favorite game? To me, that alone is enough to wish a game was an MMO. So, what possible reason could make an MMO a desirable offline experience? Well that’s what I’ll be exploring in this article.

A Look at the Final Fantasy XIV Fan Fest in Frankfurt

Throughout this series the one thing I can’t seem to escape is Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood. I have lost track how many times it has shown up in my articles ever since it was first announced back in October of last year.

What to Expect in 2017 from Final Fantasy

While 2016 was a rather interesting year, it was a pretty fantastic time for Final Fantasy fans. We were treated to Final Fantasy XV, which many of us had been waiting on for over a decade.

Getting Your Feet Wet in the Final Fantasy Universe

The Final Fantasy series is one that’s been around for quite some time, coming up soon on its 30th anniversary. During its life, it has come out with eighteen main title games as well as many spin offs. Having so many entries, all varying quite greatly in different aspects, it can be a daunting series to try and get into if you haven’t already.

Final Fantasy XV - A Decade of Hardwork

After over ten years of waiting, it’s finally here! Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XV just released worldwide this week, and the wait was definitely worth it. I had a lot of skepticism about this game, especially after the train wreck that was Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, or heck, just the entire Final Fantasy XIII trilogy.

The Marvelous World of Final Fantasy

This adorable new Final Fantasy game, World of Final Fantasy, caught a lot of criticism back when it was first announced at last year’s E3.

Final Fantasy XIV Fanfest 2016 - Las Vegas

Returning after two years, Final Fantasy XIV Fan Fest is back in its city of origin - Las Vegas.

Taking place October 14-15, the festival had it’s downs, such as the atrocious merchandise line which kept even the people who rushed there first thing stuck for several hours (myself included); the obvious lack of knowledge and enthusiasm that the staff displayed; as well as the lackluster prizes when compared to the original FFXIV Fan Festival back in 2014. Although, they are still pretty neat.
