Grab your crowbar and get your Half-Life 3 confirmed jokes out of the way, because Noctis means business now! Ok, not going to lie, seeing Noctis dressed up as Gordon Freeman is easily one of the coolest things about the Final Fantasy XV PC port. I am kind of excited to see what mods the community can come up with, too! This week we also had news stories from Peter Triezenberg and Trent Argirov, and reviews from Alana Hagues, Patrick Gann, and Dom Kim.

Story by Peter Triezenberg

Modding games is one of the reasons I love PC gaming. Even official mods like this are really awesome to behold and add so much to a given game. I know Final Fantasy XV was not the most well-received game in the series, but getting to play it again on some fantastic graphics settings with a whole slew of community mods will help the game immensely.

Review by Alana Hagues

Oh, Dissidia, what happened to you? What initially was a fun all-star mash-up fighting game for Final Fantasy fans turned into a very competitive fighter with very little to offer those looking for a single player experience. Now, I do enjoy a competitive fighter every now and again, but developers...please do not forget about single player content in these games. It goes a long way. Alana Hagues has your full review for those die-hard Dissidia fans.

I told you guys and gals last week are going to get a ton of new videos and trailers for Ni no Kuni II, and look what happens. I was right, and yes, we have more beautiful videos of this already magnificent-looking game. As much as gameplay videos and trailers are an excellent way to hold off anticipation, nothing ever beats the actual release. Only one more month to go!

Review by Patrick Gann

If you didn't get enough NieR music last week — and let's be honest, who actually ever gets their fill of NieR music — then you're in luck, because this week Patrick Gann is back with another NieR music review. This time it's a review of the Blu-ray of the Memories of Puppets concert. It might not be your typical soundtrack review, but it is still filled with all the information you will need to get your NieR music fix.

Review by Dom Kim

The Fruit of Grisaia was one of the favorite visual novels Dom has reviewed, and rightfully so. It is a great visual novel. But one question always arises when a sequel appears to any game. Can it be as good as its predecessor? Most of the time it feels like it's a solid no, but a few games do surprise you now and then. Dom Kim dives into the Labyrinth of Grisaia to find out in his review.
