Final Fantasy 7’s Switch port quietly received an update that seems to fix one of its most notorious bugs: an audio glitch that has been reintroduced in nearly all of its modern ports. The now-squashed bug caused the game’s overworld music to restart from the beginning of the song after every battle. It’s not the worst bug in the world, but can make playing significantly more repetitive as you’ll rarely hear more than the opening moments of any overworld song… and you’ll hear it a whole lot. Frustratingly, this particular audio bug has been a recurring nightmare for longtime fans….

The Epic Games Store began its “Mega Epic Sale,” but has hit some snags along the way, including two games being pulled off the store. The Mega Epic Sale is offering some pretty major discounts, particularly the sweeping promotion where Epic itself is offering $10 off on all games priced $14.99 or higher, meaning games like Super Meat Boy that are normally $14.99 can currently be purchased for $4.99. This discount comes courtesy of Epic itself, suggesting they’re paying for portions of the discount that extend beyond their 12% cut of the profits. This discount applies to games already on sale,…

Nintendo’s latest Mario Maker-focused Direct provided a boatload of information on the upcoming Super Mario Maker 2. But it was the one thing they didn’t show that piqued my interest the most. In the brief moment where switching game styles was shown, the Mario 3D World style stood alone in an “Extra Game Styles” section with a space next to it that looked conveniently large enough for another game style to appear. There’s a good possibility that we were purposely not shown one final Mario style that we’ll be able to build levels in. Given the degree to which the…

The Sega Genesis Mini looks like it’s going to be the real-deal as far as high-quality all-in-one classic consoles go. With 40 games, two controllers, an AC adapter packed into the box, and authentic 1990s styling, it’s looking closer to the NES Classic and Super NES Classic than it is to the PS Classic. There’s one slight problem, though. In spite of the fact some of the games announced for Sega Genesis Mini are almost unplayable on the…

A fan with terminal leukemia has been granted his dying wish to play Total War: Three Kingdoms by the game’s developer, Creative Assembly. Yesterday, Reddit user TheMissingLink5 posted a message on the Total War subreddit explaining that his younger brother, who had been diagnosed with leukemia last year, has just days left to live. His brother is a fan of the Total War games, and hoped to play the latest historical entry in the series – Total War: Three Kingdoms – before he passes away.
