As we approach the launch of Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker, Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida still had more to tell us during what will be the last Live Letter broadcast before the new expansion arrives. Information was shared about the new small-scale PvP: Crystal Conflict, as well as details about the changes coming to crafters
Producer & Director Naoki Yoshida announced tonight during the 67th Letter from the Producer Live that the release of Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker, the upcoming expansion pack, is being delayed by two weeks. The new release schedule is as follows: Official Release: Tuesday, December 7, 2021Start of Early Access: Friday, December 3, 2021Patch 6.01 Scheduled
If you’ve been a semi-casual Gamer Escape reader this past summer (which you should be, duh), you’ve probably come across our past coverage of Weird West, a top-down cel-shaded action RPG developed by some of the core staff behind Arkane Studios and games such as Dishonored. Published by Devolver Digital, it drew me in since
I always have an interest in rare genres, things new or resurrected. It’s for this reason that I leapt at the chance to preview Shadow Tactics: Aiko’s Choice, despite not being familiar with the original Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun. A strategy stealth game, it combines isometric control of a squad of characters with
The Cotton games are a series of shoot ’em ups (or cute ’em ups, if you prefer) that haven’t seen much popularity outside of their native Japan. Up until this year, Cotton: Fantastic Night Dreams, the franchise’s first entry, was the only one to receive a North American release on the TurboGrafx-CD in 1993, and
I’m going to die. I don’t care about that. I care about what it means. It happens. I consider myself decent at video games, and I rarely get particularly angry with games. It’s part of my job. Sure, it might be a bit annoying to get stunlocked and killed, but there’s no reason to get
Today, PlayStation went live with their latest State of Play broadcast which gave us our first look at the next Star Ocean game from Square Enix as well as a free update coming to Bugsnax! Read on to see all of the trailers from today’s presentation!
Ever since finally getting my hands on a PC Engine Duo (or, as it was known in the US, the TurboDuo), I’ve been on a bit of a shmup kick. The system is known for its absolute glut of space shooters, after all, so why not dive in and see what it actually had to
Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker is said to answer many questions that players have had over the games lifespan. Since the original 1.0 version of the game launched in September of 2010, we’ve been presented with a lot of different story beats- some of which have maybe deliberately never been addressed, and some which have simply
It’s that time of year again. The autumnal season is in full swing, and our current proximity to Halloween could very well move you to seek out TV shows, movies, music, and video games to commemorate the month of harrowing haunts and spectral spirits. There’s no shortage of spooky titles asking for your time, but
Before I begin this review in any sort of proper context, let me just say how I am deeply and personally wounded by the fact that this title is not Educator’s Creed. I thought of that joke when I was first told that this was a thing to be reviewed and I am, in hindsight,
I’ve never really been much into tabletop card games. If you don’t count the couple years in college I lost my life to Magic: The Gathering, that is (and I don’t remember much of that time, considering that was right around when I turned 21…). Setting that specific time aside, tabletop card games just never
In the wake of the massive success that was Dark Souls, a whole crop of imitators popped up with gothic tones, corpse run mechanics, and expectations that you will die a lot. Few were quite as successful and memorable as Salt and Sanctuary by Ska Studios. With a shift to 2D platforming and a style
At long last, the Media Tour embargo has lifted and we were able to share with you guys all the glorious information we collected! Today we bring you an overview of all the juicy details. It's a long one, so get ready!
I’d like to think that given my long stint as a gamer, I have experienced everything that video games have to offer. However, there are times when I am made to realize that is not the case. Unfortunately, those experiences aren’t always positive, as is the case with The Good Life, an RPG adventure game
Everyone likes a good simple party game, you know? Something where explaining the mechanics are super easy to break down and get right to the fun part can really do wonders to liven up a gathering. I’ve probably lost count of how many times I’ve proposed firing up a session of some Jackbox game during
A couple of weeks ago, after spending a large portion of the day getting hands-on time with Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker, we had a chance to meet with Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida over Zoom to ask about the expansion and future updates.
We recently had a chance to get hands-on with a preview build of Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker. As we have with previous FFXIV Media Tours, we’ve compiled a post detailing each job and the changes that they’ll see when the expansion goes live, as well as a look at several new areas and a brand
We recently had a chance to play preview build of Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker as part of the North American Media Tour. During our hands-on time, we were able to explore Old Sharlayan in addition to two field areas: Garlemald and Thavnair. While exploring the field areas, we made it a point to go around
As players eagerly await the release of Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker, Square Enix is opening up the Moogle Treasure Trove once again. This time, letting players grind Irregular Tomestones of Lore in order to get some of the game’s harder to obtain items, in addition to an exclusive item that can only be obtained during
