The day before Microsoft's console is revealed, some tasty rumours surface.
The remake of this MMO has more pressure than most. We grab our blade and head back into the online world of Final Fantasy XIV.
"Without the fandom, you're more likely to see the shortcomings of Injustice: Gods Amongst Us."
"Forget waiting for the next generation of graphics to appear: they're here already, and that we can thank Crytek for."
