Preview by Nicholas Ransbottom

The HD release of Final Fantasy XII is due out next week which is exciting, I mean, who doesn't want to see Vaan's abs in HD? But if you are still on the fence about picking this one up then have a gander at Nicholas Ransbottom's preview of the title. Our review of the Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age will be out shortly if you want an even more in-depth look before making your decision.

So what happens to the Los Angeles Convention Center after E3 is finished? Well, the just as big Anime Expo happens, which allows a lot of publishers to return to LA for another opportunity to show off their games. Derek Heemsbergen got a chance to sit down and talk to Aksys Games about all the future games coming out which includes a plethora of otome games. And boy there are a lot.

Are you looking to scratch that visual novel itch? Well then you should check out Chaos;Child coming out this winter. From the same developer that made the fantastic Steins;Gate games comes a sequel to their other great visual novel Chaos;Head. If you can't wait till this winter to play this sequel, then at least check out Robert Fenner's preview of the game to maybe hold you over until then.

Story by Peter Triezenberg

So Dissidia Final Fantasy is finally heading to consoles next year, but the original arcade version is still getting frequent updates that, hopefully, we will see in the console release. This time you have the beautiful Lunar Subterrane from Final Fantasy IV to do battle on. I mean, it doesn't get much more Final Fantasy than doing battle on the moon.

Review by Sara Tjan

The fifth installment in the Prescription for Sleep series just so happens to be based on the amazing Undertale soundtrack. The question is, could anyone take the already great Undertale soundtrack and make it even better? Well, check out Sara Tjan's review of this album to find the answer to that question and more. The answer is yes, by the way, as that soundtrack can do no wrong.
