Square Enix has just rolled out its latest series of patches for Final Fantasy Xv, one of which brings with it the long-awaited changes to the RPG’s oft-criticized Chapter 13.

Besides the above, Patch 1.06 also includes various bug fixes, gameplay enhancements and new music tracks for the Regalia, as well as new and improved versions of Noctis’ Arcana spells, Alterna, Holy and Death. You can see them all demoed in the video above and, »

If my limited experience with Philip Roth adaptations is any indication, his novels deal in emotion. There are existential crises concerning identity involved, each a character study about life’s impact beyond the surface experiences propelling them forward.
