Lightning Returns Will Feature Japanese Voice-Overs
Limited time only DLC
by Arthur Kotsopoulos
Earlier today Square Enix Ltd publishers of Square Enix titles in Australia and other PAL territories announced that Japanese Voice-Overs would feature in the upcoming Final Fantasy XIII Lihgtning Returns game. If many of you are thinking if this is on the disc, it unfortunately isn’t. It is a free downloadable piece of content which will be available during the first two weeks of the games release.
Once this period of time has passed there will be a price on the DLC to which that hasn’t been announced yet.
This DLC will also offer lip-synching that differs from the English language voice track featured in the game, this has been done to ensure a more natural and localised game experience.

OXCGN’s Call of Duty: Ghosts Review
Aiming high, but falling short.
by Jayden Perry
In the opening minutes of Call of Duty Ghosts you run through a collapsing town, jump to space and try to defend a space station, then watch as the world as we know it is decimated by high-powered missiles.
As you watch these amazing and out there scenarios play out, with everything exploding all around, you know that this is Call of Duty.
Ghosts marks the first Call of Duty game developed by Infinity Ward after their incredibly successful “Modern Warfare” series. Right from the word go you’ll notice the similar feeling of menus and text, but this game has a lot to offer in it’s new premise, extinction mode and surprisingly complex multiplayer.
Ghosts provides the player with a variety of modes in which to spend your time playing; Campaign, Squads/Multiplayer and Extinction.
Ghosts even takes you to fight on the final frontier; space!

OXCGN’s FIFA14 Review
Has hardware limited the game in what it can achieve?
by Arthur Kotsopoulos
With next-gen consoles on the horizon and a brand new engine amply titled IGNITE which will power future EA sports titles, I’m not surprised that FIFA14 looks and feels like FIFA13.
It’s more of a refinement in the sense that, button configuration and various core gameplay enhancements have been made.
With real ball physics, the ball feels as if it has more weight, it moves according to the velocity of a shot and how it comes off a players boot. This allows for greater unpredictability within the game and works wonders when coupled with the new Pure Shot system.
Goals and shots feel more realistic, which work to capture the feeling of satisfaction when you see the ball curve and hit the back of the net.
When watching football or playing the world game on your own, you never know the outcome of a game from the first 5 minutes every match. Players don’t up and score right off the whistle and that seems to ring true in FIFA14.
Australian box art for the game.
