Some Of The Weird Ways I Spent My Time In Yakuza 0

I’ve been looking forward to Yakuza 0 for some time. The setting seemed interesting (Tokyo in the ‘80s), and it seemed like a good starting point for a series that I’ve never spent much time with. I’ve been playing it for about a week now, and I’ve been having a lot of fun with it so far. Even though the story is a tale of betrayal and honor, antihero Kazuma Kiryu doesn’t have to approach the proceedings with a laser focus. Sure, I’ve been working to avenge my name after getting framed for murder, but that hasn’t stopped me from farting around town. Here are some of the ways I’ve been killing time during my adventure.

Double Dragon IV Will Bring Back Retro-Brawler Action On Jan. 30

Although the recent Double Dragon: Neon was coated in a thick layer of 1980s nostalgia, Arc System Works is looking to one-up the retro feeling with the newly-announced Double Dragon IV.

The game, which will once again have Jimmy and Billy fighting hordes of bad guys in order to save perpetual damsel-in-distress Marian, uses graphics incredibly similar to those of the original Double Dragon games, both during in-game cutscenes and in gameplay. The game also looks to feature a combo system that lets players juggle opponents after the first hit they land. You can watch the first teaser trailer for the game below.

Expansion Launches In June, Adds Red Mage Class

The next chapter of the Final Fantasy XIV saga, Stormblood, was revealed in October, but today's Final Fantasy XIV Fan Festival 2016 gave fans some more details on what Stormblood is and when it will be available to players.

The biggest news is perhaps the addition of the new Red Mage class. The class is designed to deal ranged damage through magic, similar to the Black Mage, but it has a unique melee weapon that it can use in combat.

Stormblood is also set to expand players' horizons with the ability to swim and dive. You can even bring your flying mount with you. Though these submerged areas are now explorable, no battles will happen in the water. In order to unlock the ability to swim and dive, you must complete a quest at the beginning of the expansion.
