Originally announced in 2006 alongside Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy XV has become one of gaming’s most notorious titles. It’s development has been fraught with numerous delays, rumors of becoming vaporware, and even the possibility of turning into a musical. Yes, a musical. While the game’s E3 2013 showing renewed faith that it still exists, it had absolutely zero presence at E3 2014 whatsoever. Given the game’s history this was….concerning, to say the least.

This week’s Tokyo Game Show brought a number of announcements about the title, and while none of them are a release date (or even a window) they are pretty noteworthy nonetheless.

Dear Diary,

It was a fun week in Geneva this time around, even if a couple people tried to move away. We had a festival, some silliness, and good times. Oh, and after a visit to Gabi’s home where I had to reluctantly inform her that the place was kind of dump, she sent me a lovely letter thanking me for my brutal honesty and rewarding me with her picture. Now, I’ve already got it, but it’s the thought that counts!

Keep reading for the rest of the shenanigans!

Dear Diary,

I’d like to say this was a quiet week in Geneva, but even though there was no drama of people trying to come and go from town, we had a couple of events, so it certainly wasn’t boring! Read on for all the fun!

Vlogger Rantasmo has made a name for himself dissecting media that, as he puts it, ‘needs more gay’. In his aptly titled video series he carefully analyzes the queer content in all sorts of media from film to TV to, you guessed it, video games. In his latest episode he takes a look at Gone Home, the breakout indie title of 2014. In his review he addresses some common complaints against the The Fullbright Company’s gay friendly hit while also explaining why its 90s setting is an integral part of its queer themes.

This week has been a pretty interesting week for Super Smash Bros. fans. Someone from NOA leaked some video footage of the 3DS version of the game surfaced showing newcomers Shulk from Xenoblade Chronicles, Bowser Jr. in his clown car as well as a few more characters. People all over social media questioned the legitimacy of the leak claiming that it was a Super Smash Bros. Brawl mod. Personally, I felt like it was a little too elaborate to be fake. Soon after the news made it’s way around the internet and major gaming news sites, Nintendo of America brought down the hammer and the videos were flagged taken down. For me, that pretty much confirmed that what we saw was in fact real.

Later in the week, a 3DS specific Nintendo Direct was announced. We knew we were going to get something Smash related and something that would either confirm or deny the leak. Lo and behold, Shulk is revealed.
