It’s been six years since Brand New released their last album, Daisy, but they are still selling out venues all over the world. It’s an amazing achievement for any band to be able to almost sell out huge venues such as Alexandra Palace at the peak of their career but Brand New are able to do it effortlessly over a decade into it.
After a staggering ten years in production Final Fantasy XV has finally been released. Originally called Final Fantasy Versus XIII, the game changed just about everything from the development team to the design and platform. The previous two numbered Final Fantasy games had a lot of trouble; XIII was heavily criticised for its “boring, bland and linear” storytelling, while the MMORPG XIV had to be completely remade. Final Fantasy XV was Square Enix’s chance to breathe life back into the series and they do so with a dazzling spectacle reminiscent of Final Fantasy’s golden age – but that’s not to say that it doesn’t have its imperfections.
