FINAL FANTASY XIV: A REALM REBORN

PlayStation3™ PC [MMORPG]

A complete reboot and revamp of the much maligned FF:XIV, A Realm Reborn are the efforts from Square Enix to rectify and improve on every single aspect from the former. 

Improvements include a much needed implementation of a completely new server system, a new graphical engine, and the most important one of all: a fully renewed user interface. Certain races such as the  female Hyur Highlanders, female Roegadyns, and male Miqo'tes are playable; current jobs and new ones (Scholar, Arcanist, and Summoner) have also been reworked. As well, compared the to original's 8 world zones, all field maps have been redesigned in 40 new zones. 

With all this new content, FF: XIV indeed looks like a reason to return to  Hydaelyn once again!

JOJO'S BIZARRE ADVENTURE ALL-STAR BATTLE

PlayStation3™ [Fighting]

We know gamers have been waiting for this game since the announcement at mangaka Araki Hirohito's art show; the anticipation is over - time to ZA WARUDO and ORAH ORAH ORAH!

With the art in this game being so important BandaiNamco Games have designed a new shading technique called the 'Jojo Shading Requiem! This technique allows the characters to faithfully preserve Araki's exact art touches throughout the motion and dashes of the gameplay.

Stands are also going to be playing a very important role in the game, use them to attack and defend! Characters who don't have stands will have Ripple powers that will make impossible situations go your way. 

With 40/40 scores from Famitsu, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle has really been worth the wait!
