FFXIV Patch 6.01 has launched which includes the new Pandemonium raid for the expansion Endwalker, Final Fantasy VI Pixel Remaster has been delayed until Feb 2022 to allow time for more polish, and Loop Hero is available free on the Epic Game Store for a couple more hours after release of this video.

Loop Hero Free

Loop Hero is available for free for the next couple of hours on the Epic Games Store so you can redeem it and add it to your account for free. This is an exciting opportunity to try out a unique and addictive indie game that has gained popularity since its release earlier this year.


Loop Hero, developed by Four Quarters and published by Devolver Digital, combines elements of strategy, RPG, and roguelike genres. In the game, you play as a hero trapped in an endless loop, reliving the same journey over and over again. Your goal is to strategically place tiles in order to shape the world around you and build a path for your hero to navigate.


The game features a captivating pixel art style and a haunting soundtrack that adds to the atmospheric experience. As you progress through each loop, you'll encounter various enemies, collect resources, and uncover the mysteries of the world. It's a game that offers both challenging gameplay and a compelling narrative.


And in a couple of hours, we will see what game is available next. Epic Games is known for its generous giveaways, and this holiday season is no exception. They are giving out 15 free games over the Christmas period, so be sure to take advantage if you're a fan of freebies and enjoy exploring new games.

Final Fantasy VI Pixel Remaster Delayed

In other gaming news, fans of the Final Fantasy series will have to wait a little longer for the release of Final Fantasy VI Pixel Remaster. The highly anticipated remastered version of the classic game has been delayed until February 2022.


The developers, Square Enix, took to Twitter to announce the delay, stating, "In order to bring you the best experience possible, we're allowing the necessary time to apply final polish while finishing development on the game." This news might disappoint some eager fans who were looking forward to revisiting the beloved RPG, but the delay promises a better overall experience.


Square Enix also revealed that they would be adding new items for those who pre-purchase the game individually or have purchased the Pixel Remaster bundle on Steam. This additional content serves as a sweet incentive for fans to stay patient and await the game's release.


Delays in game development are not uncommon, and while they can be disappointing, they often result in a more polished and refined final product. It's always reassuring to see developers prioritize quality and take the time needed to ensure a smooth and enjoyable gaming experience.

FFXIV Launches Patch 6.01

Furthermore, Square Enix has addressed the congestion problems that plagued the game's servers. Previously, players were experiencing error messages and long queues when trying to log in. With the release of Patch 6.01, the developers have implemented fixes to improve the lobby server performance. This should alleviate the issues and provide a smoother login experience for players.


To provide a comprehensive understanding of the changes and additions in Patch 6.01, Square Enix has released detailed Patch Notes.
