New video games out this week
“Final Fantasy XIV Online: Complete Edition.” If you hesitated on investing time and money into what was at launch not a super-great massively multiplayer experience, it may be time to give it another look. The game relaunched a few years ago as “A Realm Reborn” and has since expanded to include “Heavensward” and this week’s new “Stormblood.” This edition collects it all in one package, or you can get “Stormblood” for $40 if you’ve already got the other editions. Rated T for Teen. $60-$200 in Standard and Collector’s Editions, for Windows PC, Mac and PlayStation 4.
“Ever Oasis.” With the help of a water spirit, you must protect your little oasis and recruit allies to help you battle. If you like building and resource-management games, this one’s from the creator of the “Mana” series. Rated E-10+ for Everyone 10 and Older. $40, for Nintendo 3DS.
