Hironobu Sakaguchi probably isn't a name that when you hear it, you already know who he is. In a world where pop culture icons in music and movies run mainstream, Hironobu Sakaguchi is a name where we personally get excited when we hear it. For those unaware he is the original creator of Final Fantasy. Now, Sakaguchi no longer works for Square but still has used his uncanny ability in creating great RPG's to good use. He was the driving force behind classics such as Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey. In a recent interview with Japan's 4Gamer, he has stated that he ... Read More »

Calling all RPG fans! Blue Dragon, one of the earliest titles released for the Xbox 360, is now available to play on Xbox One via backwards compatibility. A traditional JRPG, Blue Dragon focused on turn-based combat, dungeon exploration and characters that looked like they're ripped straight from an anime.
