Hiromichi Tanaka is retiring from Square-Enix

If you know the history of Square-Enix, you know the name Hiromichi Tanaka.

At the end of last week's VanaFest conve...

The Mog Log: A year that wasn't

So it's been a year since the release of Final Fantasy XIV. Well, all right, that's a a bit debatable, what with the differing launch times for the collector's edition and the general retail edition, but for the purposes of this article and my own memory, I'm going to go ahead and focus on that o...

The Mog Log: Eleventh-hour changing of the guard

When I woke up on Friday, I was greeted by a message from Square-Enix, and that alone was enough to make me start wondering what in the world was going on now.

When we last took a look at the interview, it had only been translated up through the first section, but the two additi...
