It’s been quite the past month of so for Gamer Escape. First off, I want to thank the community for their, mostly positive, support.

Final Fantasy XV releases in a mere 15 days, and we here at Gamer Escape are super excited. The game has technically been in development for more than a decade, starting out as a spin off of Final Fantasy Versus XIII. In 2012 is was re-introduced as a main series entry: Final Fantasy XV. Now,

We had the opportunity to sit down and kick the tires of Volition’s new IP, Agents of Mayhem, last week at E3, and if you like Volition’s Saints Row, chances are you’ll like this new game as well.

For those fans of the original Hitman GO, the VR Edition will delight. This is not, however, what you have come to expect or anticipate from VR gaming. Until now VR games have been primarily first person experiences – flying planes, driving cars, having zombies attack you while you are pushing down a hospital corridor,
After four days of press conferences, meetings, streams, presentations, hands-on demos and just plain crazy E3-ness, we finally got a chance to sit down with Naoki Yoshida and talk about some FFXIV in general, some Heavensward, and even touched on 4.0 (or tried to anyway). We met with Yoshida in the last interview slot of
On June 3rd 2009, Sony held their E3 press conference. During the presentation, “project rapture” was revealed as Final Fantasy XIV.

Dark forces stir, growing bolder by the day, but so too do mighty adventurers, never wavering in their duty to aid the realm. Be it by assisting Alisaie on her quest in the Final Coil of Bahamut, or by accompanying Hildibrand─agent of enquiry, inspector extraordinaire─on his latest caper, these heroes are ever ready to lend
It’s been a while since the last installment of Wiki Wednesday, but that doesn’t mean we and the community haven’t been adding stuff.
Two weeks ago we posted about how you could add drop rates to the wiki in order for us to crowd-source the information and know the frequency of the various duty drops. The response was… I admit it… luke warm. As I posted over on reddit at the time ” I get it. While we
Did you see Hiroshi Minagawa’s post about Random Number Generators (“RNG”) and FFXIV? You can read it here… we’ll wait if you want to read it now. Interesting? Sure. But does it tell you what rate Square Enix has assigned to a certain drop? Nope. Not even close. Sure whether or not you roll a
