Today marked the first full news day for me being nominally in charge of the Games section at Bleeding Cool. Since I’ll be doing a ton of posts from here on out, I’ll just be leaving a link to the archive rather than innundate eveyone with 5+ posts a day.

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire Wants Your Money

Obsidian Entertainment launched its Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire crowdfunding campaign on Fig today. You can go ahead and check it out if you like, give them your lunch money like a playground shakedown or just to figure out what exactly is Fig. That last one I can help you with, as some of you may recall I did a bit of an expose on Fig back on Sunday so that’ll save you a google search.

Will The Square Enix and Marvel #TheAvenger’s Project Be A Money Draining Freemium Game?

Ariana Grande Joins Final Fantasy Brave Exvius

Last year at E3 it was announced that Ariana Grande would be a playable character in a Final Fantasy mobile title. That game is Final Fantasy Brave Exvius, a free-to-play RPG which has perhaps the most Final Fantasy premise I’ve ever seen. You have to go around clearing dungeons and shrines of monsters to help purify crystals, all at the behest of a girl literally encased in one. Oh right, and you have a kingdom to save, but that’s just details.
