1998, 2018...same thing, no difference.
02.04.18 - 6:39 PM

If you thought we were just going to announce 20 years of RPG news, reviews, and music, then you've got another thing coming. Yes, we have some awesome stuff planned this year to mark those 20 years, and you don't want to miss any of it. For starters, we put together an awesome list of the best RPGs from 1998, the year RPGFan was born! Not to mention, you get to find out what we're all looking forward to playing in the coming year. To top it all off, this week we had news stories from Peter Triezenberg and Corey Hall, and a preview from Derek Heemsbergen.

1998 was such an amazing year, not only because it was the birth of RPGFan, but because there were so many good RPGs released as well. And to properly celebrate our 20th year, we could think of no better way than to look back and examine all the great RPGs of 1998. And trust me, there were a lot of them.

Wow, what is this? Two features from the staff this week? Well, its true and we hope you enjoy them! I mean, it's nice to be nostalgic about yesterday every now and again, but it's also nice to look forward to what is coming soon. We put our heads together and thought of 63 games that are supposed to be released this year. Looking at all of these games, 2018 might be just as good as 1998.


Story by Peter Triezenberg

And speaking of highly anticipated games of 2018, maybe the one I am looking forward to the most is Project Octopath Traveler. It's a good thing the developers are taking all the feedback they got from the demo and adjusting the game accordingly. It's nice to know that developers are taking fan feedback seriously after so many years of just ignoring them.

Preview by Derek Heemsbergen

Yes, there are two new Dissidia games this week. Although our review for Dissidia Final Fantasy NT isn't quite ready yet, we do have a preview of the brand new mobile game, Dissidia Final Fantasy Opera Omnia. It's a free to play mobile game, but from what I've played so far, it's a ton of fun and right up the alley of Final Fantasy fans. I'm not the only one thinking this, either. Check out Derek Heemsbergen's preview if you're thinking of giving it a try.

Story by Corey Hall

It's getting closer and closer to that time where we can boogie down to the music of Persona 3 and 5, and with each passing day, more information on these two games keeps coming out. The original Dancing All Night had its fair share of issues, but so far it seems the developers have learned a thing or two this time and some much-needed changes have come. Just don't make us dance with the cat, please.
