Fans who have dug into the depths of the new Tomb Raider have made a discovery that would make Lara Croft proud. By playing Shadow of the Tomb Raider without its day-one patch, they've found an alternate post-credits cutscene. The cutscene includes some easter eggs that weren't in the ending most players saw, and is impossible to see if you've updated the game.

Final Fantasy VIII, the sorceress epic about a hormone-fuelled romance, has been my favourite game in the series ever since I was 12 years old.

Originally released on the Xbox 360 in 2008, The Last Remnant was ported to the PC the following year. It announced for the PS3, but that release never happened. Now a decade later, the game is coming to PlayStation.

Every party member in Octopath Traveller has a special ability that allows them to interact with NPCs throughout the world. Ophilia the cleric and Primrose the dancer can temporarily recruit NPCs into the party and summon them during battles. One unassuming old man is able to unleash Hell upon enemies. I’m pretty sure he’s a retired jRPG protagonist, and he’s become one of my favourite allies to recruit.
