Just Cause 3 looked insane and we still have the PC show coming up in a couple hours.

Cmon PC finish the 3 days of conferences on a high note. Everyone but Nintendo had a great conference so dont screw it up.

Nier wasn't very well received the first time. I'm a bit surprise it's getting a sequel, but good for those who did like it

Man_Marmalade3314d ago

It was actually a very well done game despite the somewhat bland map. The soundtrack, gameplay and story were really good though.

Summons753314d ago

Heck yeah it was! That announcement blew FF7 out of the water in hype. Nier was an amazing game and it's such a shame it went so unloved. I'm so happy we're getting a new one and a girl lead character! Square had an awesome presser aside from the mobile crud and the unneeded video about Lara Croft skin details.

Square Enix really outdid themselves this year, as did everyone, but holy cow. We live in a world where Nier is alive and kicking. Hot dog!


Square Enix Is "Working Hard" On Small To Medium-Scaled Games, CEO Says

The Square Enix CEO has recently confirmed in a shareholders' meeting that it is still working hard on multiple small-sized games.

CrimsonWing6914d ago

I thought they said they were focusing on bigger games… so, we’re staying the same now?

just_looken14d ago

They should come clean and just say that they are working hard on keeping the light's on as they were a greedy company that is now almost broke.

The_Blue14d ago

They can't decide rather to squeeze into the indie mobile market or AAA.

CrimsonWing6913d ago

All I can say is I hope Front Mission 3 Remake didn't get cancelled.

anast14d ago

Quality should be number 1.

Abnor_Mal14d ago

Does smaller games translate to smaller prices for the consumer, or no?

just_looken14d ago (Edited 14d ago )

HA HA square small prices this is the company that made avengers and said Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Didn't Meet Sales Expectations Amid Struggles


Same in 2023 with ff16


They got 202 million usd in operating income they want cash fast so get those $60 3hr long games out there fast and more microtransactions now.

Hotpot14d ago

Well I don’t mind more HD-2D games.. preferably something like FFVI, Chrono Trigger, or Xenogears.

shinoff218314d ago

Even some new single story experiences in hd2d(octapath is good but I like single story games to)

Fear Effect coming to PS5, PS4, Switch, and PC in 2025

Limited Run Games, in cooperation with Square Enix, will release action adventure game Fear Effect for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC via Steam in 2025, the company announced.

What!? That is freaking great!!!! I really loved this game back in the day and was so pissed the Remake got changed and then eventually canceled. This is such great news that it’s the original. Will definitely get the plat for it.

Mr Pumblechook22d ago

The article mentions:

* PC
* Nintendo Switch
* PlayStation 4
* PlayStation 5

But why isn’t there a mention of the Xbox Series version?

CrimsonWing6922d ago

Yea that’s a Limited Run Games thing like what @Scissorman showed in the article. They’ve tried selling the physical versions of Xsex games, but they just don’t sell. But I’m fairly sure this should be digital for Xbox, if not, then it’s time to drop Xbox and come to greener pastures.

wesnytsfs22d ago

@CrimsonWing69, greener pastures.. Yep moved to mainly PC now myself get all the good games from both companies now if only Nintendo would release games on PC too.

RiseNShine22d ago

so a ps1 game launched in modern platformos, mmmkay. I can play it already in emulators with high res, retroachievements support and more, doesn't make much sense.


Square Enix Is Going Multiplatform; The Layoffs & Its Past Don't Inspire Confidence

After its latest games didn't meet sales targets, Square Enix is going multiplatform but the company's track record isn't convincing.

Scissorman57d ago

Square Enix been multiplatform for decades, a few exclusively-deals doesn't make them any less multiplatform.
