Friends, I come to you with an opportunity to help raise money for charity by playing Final Fantasy V. This is the centerpiece of the Final Fantasy Four Job Fiesta, a charity event that will run all summer. What it is is a challenge run of Final Fantasy V involving a strict usage of the games Job System. The charity…
Eighteen years and three PlayStations later, Final Fantasy VII is getting a remake. A real one. For PlayStation 4, with other platforms to follow.
Last month master pianist/composer Sonya Belousova charmed us with on the spot arrangements of classic Nintendo themes, many of which she had only just heard for the first time. I was hesitant to post her follow-up, but then I heard her version of "The Scars of Time" from Chrono Cross.
...but holy moly does it ever.
You might not be able to fire blanks from this Gunblade recreation like Squall does, but that sure doesn't make the weapon any less deadly. It is, after all, still a sharp blade!
But man, Final Fantasy XV is actually looking really good to me. Like, "compelling reason to bite the bullet and buy a new console" good. Which, I mean, since it's been in development for like a decade, it really ought to, but still.
This is kinda funny, if a little creepy.... that said, all i can think about is when I saw this same thing on the DVD extras of Final Fantasy: Spirits Within...
Anything can be an instrument, people—including a whole bunch of floppy drives!
Put on your funny conductor hats, ODeck, as we look in to the religious symbolism behind one of Final Fantasy's lesser known, but still freaking AWESOME summons; The simply named Doomtrain!
Last week I asked myself "Chrono, what would you say you actually contribute here?" "Nothing, really" I told the John McGinley voice in my head, "I complain about stuff, a lot."
...because there was a planned power outage at work. But look what I find waiting for me at home! Final Fantasy VIII, one of my favorite JRPGs, officially launched on Steam!!! I'm ready for magic, dragons, flying fortresses, and rocket ships! Anything to distract me from that digital crack that is FTL.
Behold the limited edition Final Fantasy XI XIth Anniversary keyboard, nearly $300 worth of Moogle-embossed enter keys and FF-fonted F-keys. It's so beautiful.
Crystals, Giant monsters, Dragoons (and Dragons!), Chocobos, Cat girls in bikinis and yes, Error 1017 - it's been quite a first week for A Realm Reborn. Here's a little update on how Rikhi'to has been doing since I first sojourned into the Open Beta Weekend.
I took the leap after a certain benchmark application drew me in a few weeks ago and decided to hop into this weekend's Open Beta for the new, totally-not-terrible version of Final Fantasy XIV, to whet my appetite before launch in a few weeks. Do you like Cat Men? Cat Men with... spears? Then say hi to Rikhi'to Tyun!
I have no familiarity with the series at all, outside of the Kingdom Hearts games. Is 3 a good one? A good place to start? Should I wait for 4 to drop to a more reasonable price (it's still $16)?
