Test Chamber – The Many Activities Of Final Fantasy XV

We’ve all had a long wait for Final Fantasy XV, and the release is finally impending on November 29 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Joe Juba and I were both there a decade ago when the game was first revealed under a different title, and much has changed in the interim, so it’s exciting to see how far the game has come. 

The latest version of the game provided the opportunity to explore the first several chapters of Final Fantasy XV, and Joe Juba and I sat down to talk about some of the most notable activities that open up in those first several hours, including combat, leveling, chocobo riding, car customization, and the game's clever twist on the pinball formula. 

Enjoy the video!

12 Tips To Help You Master Titanfall 2's Multiplayer

about X hours ago from

Titanfall 2 is out today. It's pretty great! Alongside having a fantastic campaign, the robust multiplayer mode that was essentially the entire original game has returned, along with some adjustments and additions. I've been chewing through the multiplayer over the past few days, stomping and being stomped myself, and have returned from the front lines with a few tips to help you carve out a path to victory.

Experiment With Both Pilot Loadouts and Titan PerksYou can have up to 10 custom pilot loadouts in Titanfall 2. You get 6 for free and have to buy the rest with currency earned through matches. With pilots, your best bet is to have a loadout for every occasion. Want to go stealthy sometime? Have a loadout equipped with the cloak ability and a weapon of your choosing (shotgun or sniper work pretty well depending on your play style). Also have a class with an assault weapon and frag grenades. And another with an explosive weapon as your pilot's primary. During matches you can switch between loadouts in order to change things up, so take advantage of that if your current loadout isn't working.

South Park's Developers Share Their Favorite Superhero Comics And Movies

South Park: The Fractured But Whole is a mash-up of the South Park TV show and modern super heroes. A few days ago, we highlighted the team's favorite episodes of the show. Today, we're sharing their favorite super hero stuff.

Nicholas Bonardi – lead audio designer“I have some embarrassing super hero soundtracks I like. I really, really, really like the soundtracks for the old Christopher Reeves Supermans. That was my favorite super hero movie growing up. Definitely like Batman Returns, the early Batmans, too. They are super Danny Elfmanned out, and you can only Elfman so hard, is what we’ve discovered.”

Scott Crisostomo – manager, game design“Older Uncanny X-Men? I used to collect those. I have a lot of them. And for newer stuff, it would probably be the Guardians of the Galaxy movie.”
