    Welcome to another edition of Pumpkin Judges Your Outfit! Today we will be examining the recently released Bravely Second. Because if there's one thing the Bravely games do right, it's cute outfits on cute characters that have no feet. Warning: If you want to keep these jobs a ~surprise~ for when you play the game, this will obviously contain some spoilers. Also, there will be a lot of complaining about Tiz's new hair. A lot. ...

    Square Enix released a trailer video showcasing Final Fantasy XV's lush, diverse environments. We see everything from cities, ports, caves, beaches are all featured. There's a mix of sleek modern habitats along with gorgeous primal nature. Maybe the decade-plus wait time for this game was worth it after all. ...

    In 2005 or perhaps early 2006, I played my first Dragon Quest game. I had previously played the demo of Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King and the classic JRPG gameplay entertained me enough so when Square Enix announced the American release and that it was coming with a demo of Final Fantasy XII, it was without question that I was going to buy it.

    DQVIII was a bit different from what I used to primarily playing the Final Fantasy series with its slower paced battles, faith themes, and game overs resulting in loss of currency, but also familiar with its vast over-world, silliness, and charm. This was also my first experience with Akira Toriyama's art outside of the Dragonball series. I found the game massively enjoyable and it had remained my only experience with Dragon Quest until now.

    A demo version of I am Setsuna was available to play at PAX East recently and the good folks at Siliconera wrote a pretty snazzy breakdown of the game mechanics.

    Any one who has watched the trailers or spotted the screenshots will quickly realize that I am Setsuna based its combat system on legendary cult classic Chrono Trigger, but anyone who figured that was that and not to expect more from this "throwback game" will be pleasantly surprised to discover that while CT was the basis for the system, the developers expanded it in their own unique way.

    The game also borrows from Final Fantasy VII with the Spiritnite system; characters equip their skills and techs to their equipment much like how materia worked in FFVII, meaning you have to make choices as you unlock more and more abilities. Spiritnites can be produced at special Magical Consortiums located in towns, as long as you have the right materials to produce them.

    Here's where things get a bit interesting, while enemies drop said materials, it doesn't use a standard common/rare/super rare drop like say... ...

    This week on Lets Play FFX-2 HD, we reach two more episode completes! We figure out the mystery of the accidents in the Mi'ihen Highroad, and we watch Kimarhi beat some sense into the upstart Ronso Youths of today, with his fists.

    All it took in both instances for people to change their ways was to tell them they were responsible, like one time. Kids these days, amirite?

    According to Amazon's UK site, Square Enix will release two collector box sets for the PC featuring Final Fantasy III and IV, and another for Final Fantasy VII and VIII. The bundles will go for £19.99 and be available for shipment to the US. There is little information on what each bundle contains, outside of the manuals and discs. Oddly, the games still have to be downloaded, which would seem to make getting a Steam account just as convenient. No word yet on whether there will be more to the bundles. Currently the game is only listed on the UK site and is scheduled for release on May 27, 2016. More information will be made available as it's released.

    26 years ago today, the third entry in the Final Fantasy series released for the Famicom. It had some shoes to fill as it was following the highly praised original Final Fantasy and the less than praised sequel Final Fantasy II. Final Fantasy III is one of the less talked about entries. It's not as adored as other games in the series, but it's not actively disliked like Final Fantasy II or the XIII trilogy.

    Final Fantasy III's story is a simple and familiar tale. An impeding force of darkness threatens the world and four Warriors of Light must come to save the world by gathering the crystals. The four playable characters were nameless silent Onion Knights leaving the personality to the game's NPCs. The story of Final Fantasy III I found pretty forgettable. It was just a premise to set the actual game. The one unique thing regarding it was that occasionally you would get a guest party member, but they served only in the narrative sense and would not join you in battles. You ...
