RPGs aren't for everyone, and perhaps this is none more true than the case of pairing Clueless Gamer Conan O'Brien and Final Fantasy XV.

Conan and guest star Elijah Wood team up to tackle the game, with resident expert Aaron Bleyaert on site to try explain what he can.

But who can answer for the game's many befuddling elements? Watch as the pair try and make sense of Noctis and his boy band entourage, wedding dresses, and the inexplicable world of Final Fantasy.

It will be compatible on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices running iOS 8.0 or later and will launch in 151 countries and regions next month. For more on Super Mario Run, head here.

Our TakeI am still surprised a Mario game is coming to a non-Nintendo platform, but I think it's the right call and I am excited to play it. I also like that it's free-to-play in the traditional sense. I am so tired of not being able to really buy mobile games. I don't like being nickel and dimed.

Report: Sony Suspends PSN User For Sharing Naked Screenshot From Watch Dogs 2

Report: Sony Suspends PSN User For Sharing Naked Screenshot From Watch Dogs 2

Today on NeoGAF, user Goron2000 posted about how they had received Watch Dogs 2 early and had been playing through the game when they ran into something you don't typically see in video games: explicit female nudity. Here's Goron's account of what happened:

I received my copy of Watch Dogs 2 on Saturday evening due to a mistake on Amazon Prime Now and I've been having a great time with the game so far. On Sunday evening I accidentally blew up a few women in a back alley with a gas pipe and then I saw *it*; someone at Ubisoft had rendered a full vagina on one (or maybe more) of the females in the game. I took a picture of this funny oversight with the ingame camera and shared it on twitter for my friends to see and I posted it in one of the Watch Dogs early release threads on here. Cut to tonight where I can't access any services while playing the game and then when I tried to sign in there was a very brief message about my account being suspended.

Goron says that they checked their email to discover a message from Sony informing them they had been suspended for a week for sharing "content of an adult or sexual nature [that] is against our Code of Conduct." According to the email, Goron has no access to the PlayStation Store or multiplayer until the suspension lifts.

Watch Dogs 2 Easter Egg Might Be Teasing New Ubisoft Game

Ubisoft has had a rough history with its games leaking – especially in the Assassin's Creed series. Watch Dogs 2 seems to poke fun at this, giving players a mission to hack into Ubisoft's San Francisco office and get an early peek at what the developer is working on. 

In the video from Kotaku below, players hop on the roof of the building and take control of cameras to spy on the goings-on in the studio. At one point (at the 2:20 mark), you can even see a trailer for an apparently unannounced Ubisoft game.
