Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Gameplay Footage Takes Us To Revamped Gridania

Final Fantasy XIV will cease to exist in its current form from this Sunday, becoming "A Realm Reborn" in an effort to correct the numerous flaws inherent to Square's critically-panned MMO. This new trailer shows off alpha footage of the revamped Gridania area, which is pleasingly serene and tranquil by the looks of things.

I also hope that the heartwarming image of a Moogle holding a balloon brightens up your Thursday.

Capcom "No Longer Allowed To Sell" Tatsunoko Vs Capcom

If you've taken advantage of one of our Tatsunoko Vs Capcom deals over the last couple of years, you may be about to see your bargain become a rarity. The gorgeous Wii brawler can no longer be sold or produced by Capcom now that their rights with animation studio Tatsunoko have lapsed.

Basically, if you manage to spot a copy and enjoy Wii fighting games, it might be worth picking up.

The Rook Islands look like a tempting tourist destination. Blue skies. Sandy beaches. Gorgeous vistas. Friendly locals. Wild bars. Wildlife aplenty.

Shame that it's also "a place left by humanity and honour that hides a century of horrors and misery."

This latest Far Cry 3 trailer shows us the insanity that lurks behind Rook Island's picturesque facade, setting up Jason Brody's quest for escape and well-deserved revenge. Plus, he gets to punch a shark in the face after taking all manner of psychotropic drugs. Colourful open-world adventuring and shark punching kicks off on November 30th.

After months of delays, SEGA recently announced that Platinum Games-developed brawler Anarchy Reigns will release in Europe next January, at a budget £19.99 RRP. To ensure that it doesn't slip under your radar, they've now issued a bevy of visceral screenshots to show off the ridiculous 16-way battles to advantage.

I described Anarchy Reigns as one of the "very best online multiplayer games of this generation" in our 9/10 import review. I'll see you online.

A new triforce of subtitled Nintendo Direct videos give us a closer look at the Wii U. In particular, a hilariously solemn unboxing ceremony presided over by Ninty president Satoru Iwata wearing immaculate white gloves. It's halfway between a religious ritual and an autopsy.

Two extra broadcasts shed more light on how the user accounts and Wii U video chat will work when the console rolls out on November 30th.

Oh frabjous day! Dyad, the gorgeous PS3-exclusive 'abstract racing game' from Shawn McGrath, will hit the European PlayStation Network later today. The indie developer explained that he "was completely unprepared for the extra work required to get the game out," alluding to the ridiculous EU PSN certification process that has left many games unable to release over here despite freely coming out Stateside.

Either way, we've been looking forward to Dyad for ages, and now it's here. Launch trailer after the break.

Borderlands 2 Patch Fixes Xbox 360 'Graveyard' Hack

Gearbox have pushed out a Borderlands 2 title update to kill off a prevalent Xbox 360 version exploit.  Hackers were able to access an unfinished Hardcore Mode, which wouldn't have been a major problem but for the little fact that users would corrupt save files and badass ranks of anyone who accidentally joined them in-game.

Seeing as this is the only purpose of the latest update, it's clear that Gearbox treated the issue as their highest priority.
