This week brings a mixed bag of MMO, RPG, and strategy videos.
In the latest installment of Film Friday, we have a handful of new flicks from Civilization Beyond Earth, EverQuest, Final Fantasy XIV, King's Quest, Torment: Tides of Numenera, and Total War: Arena.

Final Fantasy XIV — Dragonsong
Introducing "Dragonsong," the main theme song of Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward, composed by Nobuo Uematsu.
King's Quest: A Hand Painted Game
King’s Quest: "A Hand Painted Game” is the third installment of the four-part series taking you behind the scenes of King’s Quest with Art Director Evan Cagle and Producer Lindsey Rostal of The Odd Gentlemen to see how the artwork is born on page before coming to life on screen. Creating a fantastic but compelling world true to the spirit of King’s Quest required going back to the lessons of old. Beginning with 1990’s King’s Quest V, Sierra devised a way for its artists to draw out their ideas in vivid color and detail before scanning them into the game for further polishing. Now, 25 years later, the team is employing a similar technique to give this incredible reimagining of a classic tale the truly stunning storybook look it deserves.
