MP1st - "With the recent launch of Final Fantasy XIV for PS4, now is as good a time as any to join the realms of Eorzea. The player population is very high and with new servers opening up such as Jenova, you wont feel as if youre much lower on the totem pole than other players in game. If you havent subscribed to the game already but plan on doing so shortly, youll no doubt want to play catch up and level as fast as possible. Having recently unlocked my first job (the Dragoon), I figured Id discuss some of my best practices for getting to 30 as quickly as possible."
Fans of the original FlatOut will no doubt find it familiar, as it's essentially a remake of the old quarry track featured in the first FlatOut way back in 2004, replete with high speed banks, narrow inclines and conveniently placed dump trucks to obstruct you.
MKGaming - "RedLynx has a tricky job on their hands, how do they follow up on the brilliant Trails Evolution without either breaking the format or releasing something thats basically a re-skin of the title. Their answer is Trials Fusion, and to be honest it looks like theyve decided to err on the side of caution rather than try and re-invent the Trials series."
Connected Digital World writes: I had a slightly underwhelming experience with my first foray into the new and improved Final Fantasy MMO on the PS3. The hardware could barely cope with it and even when it did everything was pretty substandard. There was an impressive world at work but I felt it was destined for greater platforms.
Well, its been a few months, so the time has come for another Lego game. This time the gang at Travellers Tales have returned to the world of J.R.R. Tolkien/Peter Jackson. One of the companys last Lego epics from the previous generation was Lego Lord Of The Rings, which condensed the entire trilogy into a single Lego-themed adventure, following the plot as closely as possible while also tossing in some of the dialogue from the movies during cut scenes. Lego: The Hobbit does the exact same thing with Peter Jacksons new Hobbit trilogy well, almost.

"More than four years have passed since From Software's Demon's Souls arrived in the States, and most Western developers have done the equivalent of meandering around in the dark, not daring to step into the white fog and even attempt to approach its modern interpretation of old-school gameplay. Maybe they find the franchise too niche, too uninviting for new players, but you would suspect that its critical acclaim and unrelenting fan base would convince at least a few to follow suit." ~ Nick Tan, GameRevolution
Last weeks Call of Duty: Ghosts PC update that introduced the new Chaos Mode to Extinction is now rolling out on other platforms.
Push Square: "Octodad: Dadliest Catch is a game that embraces its craziness. The titles zany controls lead to some even stranger onscreen occurrences, and that leads to a lot of unexpected entertainment. The release does start to grate in long sessions, and perhaps doesnt have enough gameplay variety to carry its core idea, but with PlayStation Move support and a ridiculous co-op mode, the package will spread a smile across even the sternest countenance."
DualShockers' Tony Polanco writes: "Video games usually fall into specific categories. There are first person shooters, action adventure, role playing, puzzle, fighting, etc. Then you have a game like Octodad: Dadliest Catch, which doesnt exactly fit into any known genre that I can think of. This game is so out there that it may need its own genre, although I dont exactly know what you would call it."
The now-deleted Twitter account mentioned Ubisoft Reflections in the tease, possibly signaling a new developer taking over the reins for the Prince.
NGB Wrote: "Im a huge fan of the LEGO video games, getting hours of enjoyment out of the many titles released so far. Sadly, I cant completely say that about LEGO The Hobbit. It is fun, with plenty of charm and wit, but it falls short where it really matters the gameplay department. The grandeur of the movies is present, but the simplistic puzzles and lack of variations stop it from becoming one of the better titles in the franchise. Kudos to Travellers Tales for trying to change things a little, but the developer hasnt completely managed to craft its magic on this release. Next time, some help…

Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw Forgive me for stating the obvious, but there's something very odd about the Metal Gear series. Unique might be a better word. Not just in terms of content, but also in the way we perceive it, and the way it is treated by the world around it. Metal Gear is like the weird kid who hangs around with your circle of school-friends and is tolerated because he does entertaining things, like the time he punted a sleepy bullfrog into the girl's changing rooms. At other times, though, he might claim to have transformed into a velociraptor, or spend an entire lunch hour explaining that…

VVV: "Alan presents some more exclusive footage of The Crew from the preview event held in Paris, with some off-cuts covering aspects of the game we didn't see in part one such as the car customisation and an overview of the map. Of course, there's more hands-on gameplay too, as Alan takes a leisurely drive across the varied terrain found in The Crew's expansive open world map."
