Exploring Final Fantasy XV One Year Later

I can’t believe it, but it has already been a year since Final Fantasy XV launched on November 29, 2016. I waited for that game for nearly a decade and now that it’s out I barely think about it. Ha, that’s not the case actually. It’s kind of hard not to think about the game. 2017 has been jam packed with what seems like a decade worth of content.


That said this retrospective podcast attempts to summarize everything that came out last year along with everything that came out this year related to Final Fantasy XV. That includes the anime, movie, patches, spinoff games, collaboration events, things to come, and the game itself. Needless to say there are spoilers ahead. Warning aside, enjoy!


Mass Effect 10th Anniversary

Today marks the 10th anniversary for the Mass Effect series. The original game launched on November 20, 2007 for the Xbox 360. It remained a Microsoft exclusive until 2011 when the second game was ported to PS3. Since then it became multi-platform, but its history of ports and the overall legacy is a bit more complex than that. Let’s rewind the clock for another retrospective. Enjoy!


Assassin’s Creed 10th Anniversary

Today marks the 10th Anniversary of Assassin’s Creed. It launched on November 13, 2007 for the PS3 and Xbox 360. In ten years there have been a total of sixteen games including portable entries. The series has also been adapted into a movie, several animated shorts, various comics, and more. Needless to say the franchise is popular, but Assassin’s Creed has had a pretty tumultuous history in terms of quality. Like this year’s title, Origins, let us take a look at the beginning to see how it all started. Enjoy!
