The king of JRPGs, a series that has helped us experience so many wonderful journeys, meet amazing and interesting characters has had its new release Final Fantasy XV make its way to the realm of PC Gaming. Final Fantasy XV is finally available on Windows PCs in all its glory with all the DLC and updates and not to mention, the added graphical fidelity thanks to Nvidia that makes the experience more immersive and the world more life-like.

It was the news of the year when Square Enix decided to sell IO interactive. The news was announced in May, with the Japanese firm initially looking to sell the studio to another publisher but eventually settling on a management buyout (MBO) with the IO team, giving the Hitman studio its independence.

While playing Destiny 2 on our livestreams recently, I realized that many from our Indian audience had no idea about Bungie, and their legacy.
