Trials Fusion review: ride along

Trials Fusion review: ride along

The Trials games have to find the perfect amount of frustration to entice gamers. Levels need to be challenging enough to have gamers say "just one more time," without having them burst a blood vessel. When you finally nail a level, it's incredibly liberating, whetting your appetite for more.

Developer RedLynx captured that sensation with both Trials HD and Trials Evolution. With Trials Fusion, they're able to maintain the status quo. While the game adds a few new features, the latest entry in the series is still all about staying on your wheels and finishing the race.

Why Final Fantasy XIV's reboot needed to keep the original name

Why Final Fantasy XIV's reboot needed to keep the original name

Has there ever been a comeback story as dramatic as Final Fantasy XIV's? Launched to disastrous results, the game was rebuilt and relaunched as "A Realm Reborn," essentially a brand new game with the Final Fantasy XIV moniker. So, why didn't Square Enix simply cut their losses and shed the name? Game director Naoki Yoshida said it was important to preserve faith in the Final Fantasy brand.

"Even if we were to, say, shut down this game within a year and put out the next Final Fantasy game, that would lose the trust, and it would completely disappoint all of our fans," he explained. "I'm sure there would be a lot of players who would say, 'I'm never going to play Final Fantasy again,' or 'I'm never going to buy a Square Enix game ever again.' I, too, am a fan of the Final Fantasy series. I would have said the same thing, too."
