Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Review

Like many Final Fantasy games, Type-O is long in explanation and drenched in overwrought backstory, but after clearing the first few hours, the game’s pulse starts to regulate, and a deep, action RPG is revealed. At $29.99 on Steam, its a steal, and anyone who is a fan of action RPGs, particularly jRPGs, will surely find a rewarding and fun game in Type-0.

After watching the Microsoft E3 press conference, I’m more impressed than I was last year. The new hardware is no surprise; indeed the arrival of the X-Box One S was a pleasant reminder of why I own an upgradeable gaming machine. What really piqued my interest is the amount of convergence in multiplayer between Windows and the Xbone. Forza Motorsport 6: Apex and Killer Instinct, both available for free from the Windows Store, feature online cross-play, and are great examples of how this can be done well. A new Gears of War title also promises some multiplatform multiplayer mayhem but I will be reserving judgment for after its release.
