7w ago - Square Enix Associate Product Marketing Manager Scott Strichart revealed the Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Collector's Edition for PlayStation 4 today with details below, as follows:

Good evening! It's a little later than we usually post, but we wanted to bring you this bit of news as soon as it broke. Today, er, tonight, we're happy to announce that Final Fantasy Type-0 HD is getting its very own Collector's Edition.

Available in limited quantities, you can lock in your order on this premium collection of cool stuff now, for $99.99. Ah, but what's in it, you ask? Well, in industry circles, we call the image below a "beauty shot," and with good reason! Look upon its majesty.

Let's discuss what you're seeing, shall we? We'll start with the golden Steel Book case, featuring what I personally think is one of long-time Final Fantasy artist Yoshitaka Amano's finest pieces - the goddesses of Orience. On the inside is the Japanese kanji for the game title: 零, or "Rei," meaning "zero," and 式, or "shiki," meaning "type." We know you guys appreciate authenticity.

The Steel Book holds both the game disc and a 15-track collection of songs hand-picked by the game's composer, Takeharu Ishimoto. If the name doesn't ring a bell, he also did the score for Crisis Core -Final Fantasy...

8w ago - Today Sony's Dan Hsu shared a video and Q & A interview with Tim Schafer on why you need to check out Grim Fandango on PS4 and PS Vita below.

To quote: Tim Schafer is never "off." The funnyman game designer and founder of studio house Double Fine Productions is constantly cracking jokes, even when he's trying to be serious.

So when we had a chance to interview him about his upcoming adventure game, Grim Fandango Remastered, we didn't even try to play it straight (for the most part).





The original Grim Fandango originally came out over 16 years ago and became a cult classic. Now it's getting a full, fresh HD makeover for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, due out January 2015. But who should care? Schafer explains:

Q: I'm a 15-year-old gamer, and the original Grim Fandango came out before I was even born. Why should I play your old-man game?

Tim Schafer: When my older brother went away to college, I raided his record collection and randomly pulled out Led Zeppelin III. I had never heard Led Zeppelin before, so when the opening notes of Immigrant Song burrowed into my brain, I was not prepared.

My head exploded and my life was forever changed. What...
