The Xbox One generation did a lot to hinder Team Green. Under previous leadership, the gaming brand lost its identity and its meaningful contribution to the community overall.

The Tribeca Film Festival has nothing to do with E3, aside from the fact that it’s going on right now.

I’ve only dabbled in a couple of Final Fantasies, and I often forget which game is which in the sprawling JRPG series. If you showed me a screenshot of Edge Of Eternity, and said it was Final Fantasy 12, I’d probably believe you. It’s not, though. It’s a turn-based JRPG that just finished two years
