In the months leading up to a Final Fantasy XIV expansion, we will often see “the mother of all Live Letters”, the Mother Porxie if you will- a broadcast that goes on for hours upon hours while continuously flooding our brains with the exciting changes to our favorite jobs, as well as other changes that
JOB CHANGES ON THE HORIZON! And the latest live letter gives us a tasty treat in the form of a delicious deluge of INFORMATION! Hold tight as we break down the adjustments (subject to change).
A short while ago we previewed Aragami 2, the sequel to the 2016 indie stealth action game Aragami, seeing what had changed from the original and what we were looking forward to. However, that preview left a few burning questions, so we just had to take the opportunity to look at the final release. Aragami
Today saw THQ Nordic’s first digital presentation in celebration of the company’s 10th anniversary. As you’d expect from a showcase ringing in a decade of publishing games, it was suitably filled with reveals of projects currently in development and new looks at a couple of previously announced titles.
Here’s the hidden secret about Metallic Child: It is perhaps best understood not by what it claims to be on the cover but by a series of otherwise ornate references to other games. At a glance, this game is a roguelite, and indeed that’s what it claims to be right on the cover when you
Back in March of 2021, I took a look at a neat little game. Something of a parody on the earlier Grand Theft Auto games, the game trades a modern city for a humorous interpretation of a medieval setting, while keeping a modern (and coarsely-worded) take on much of the dialogue, story, behaviors and activities.
When the original Bravely Default landed on the 3DS back in 2014, it stood as direct confirmation that there was still a market for high quality, turn-based JRPGs. It sported a job-based combat system and a party reminiscent of 2010’s Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light, a game that itself took heavy inspiration from
Super Louis 64 joins the Aetheryte Radio crew today to talk about his Yugioh duel disk controller for Astrologian, future projects, and SO much more!
Today, we got to check out the PlayStation Showcase 2021 which gave big announcements such as Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake and Marvel’s Wolverine, as well as updates for previously announced games like God of War: Ragnarok or Gran Turismo 7. Let’s go through all of the things shown during the PlayStation
I’m always somewhat skeptical when it comes to plot-based decision making in games. Typically, you’ll be offered one of three choices in every situation: something a nice person would do, something a mean person would do, and something that falls somewhere in between the two.
Dice Legacy is a strange game. This is not inherently a bad thing. I’m generally of the mind that strange but distinctive games have a decided edge in the now-crowded indie game space, and I’m inherently very fond of any game that’s trying to do something very different. And a roguelike city-builder strategy game is
Sometimes it’s worth looking back at what you’re proud of and analyzing what made it work. What were the things you did or didn’t do that lead to its success? Where did you fall short, and what didn’t work? I had the chance to sit down with a preview Aragami 2, the sequel to 2016’s
2011 was a year of absolutely massive games that have gone on to be considered classics. Portal 2. Skyrim. Dark Souls. The Witcher 2. Hell, one of my favorite games of all time (Deus Ex: Human Revolution) dropped during this absolutely stacked period of gaming. With hit after hit dropping, though, a number of smaller
Good quality sound is very important to me in my media. I can’t enjoy movies or console gaming without my full surround sound speaker setup. I’m more than happy to shell out a couple hundred bucks for quality headphones for my PC. On the other hand, I wouldn’t really consider myself an “audiophile.” Sure, I’m
Man, it sure has been a bit of a wait for some fresh and traditional Travis Touchdown action. Over a decade, to be precise. It hasn’t been completely devoid of his presence, what with multiple ports of the original two Wii games as well as a side entry in the form of Travis Strikes Again
This morning, Square Enix announced that the next title in their line of Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters, Final Fantasy IV, will be releasing next month on September 8 for Steam and Mobile. As was the case for the other remaster titles, Final Fantasy IV will also play host to brand new pixel graphics that were
There’s a certain je ne sais quoi that accompanies a JRPG that a lot of games try and fail to emulate. It feels reductive to say that these games have to come from Japan, of course, but for every game that manages to feel authentic to its JRPG aspirations despite not originating in the country
One-eye is forced to remember that he admitted he likes our heroes as he asks them to join his new adventurers' guild, name TBD.
On August 18, 2009, the first episode of Aetheryte Radio was unleashed on the internet. It was the beginning of what would continue on to become the longest running podcast dedicated to Final Fantasy XIV. We’re excited to announce that this coming Saturday, August 28th, we’ll be celebrating our 12 year anniversary with another Dungeon
Despite their increasing popularity, I am not a fan of mobile games. Maybe it sounds elitist, but I think there’s just something more enticing about playing games on the big screen and being able to see the worlds crafted by game developers in their full glory. That’s why I was really happy when Witch Spring
