Final Fantasy Bounces Back At Last?

Several years ago, the legendary Final Fantasy began plummeting in its popularity as it churned out several weak titles, eventually pegging its hopes on a series of spin-offs from Lightning – a female protagonist who doesn’t seem to have any love interest at all, getting all the sexual tension from day 1 till the day she becomes overtaken by the next title.

At one point, the same time as Lightning was first announced, there was an alternate universe linked to hers – Final Fantasy 13-Versus. Alas, Square Enix disappointed deeply with its no-show. Just as we all began to think of them as a good memory of the past, Square Enix seems to be coming back at long last with its latest directions. Its only true hit in recent years was Crisis Core, from FF7’s universe. Apparently they realized that real time action seems to be the trend now, as can be proven again by their latest spin-off (yet again) of Lightning’s FF13-2.

Still, where was that royal prince who looked so much like Zack(FF7) who could control ethereal swords and blades? Was he forgotten by them afterall? Guess not, here is some proof: He will be the main dude for FF15. FF13-Versus is now cancelled.

Type-0 is also a game that will fill the gap while they work on FF15 itself, and Type-0 isn’t looking too shabby either. Check it out here: Nice, eh?

Perhaps Square Enix just might relive its glory days yet!


Attention Miniature Fantasy Fans!

Today I have a new trick/ tip for all you miniature fans out there, which includes fans of Warhammer etc! I have discovered something online from someone else, that would make a superb and very cheap terrain for your miniature war gaming needs!

Check out the picture! Ancient ruins eh? Guess what….

Anshul Khatri's motherboard!

Anshul Khatri’s motherboard!

It really is a motherboard, belonging to a genius called Anshul Khatri – One that has been gathering dust for eons! A genuine 3D terrain of ruins if you ask me! If you have any dying computers, keep the mother board and add soil and dirt to it. You’d get this effect! Yet another great tip shared hah~

Useful Advice For Kickstarters

If you are someone like me, who is looking to KS for assistance on your upcoming amazing products that you would so very much wish to share with the world, this post is for you.

There are already tons of useful sites out there with great advice and stuff for KS potentials. But I have something more! In fact, it comes with a whole luggage of laughter. I know this certainly made my day and that’s why I’m here to share it with you. It’s a different angle from what other KS-advising sites do – It’s the opposite! It shows you the DO NOTs of the game.

A genius decided to create a collection of all the extreme failures of KS and post them onto a single collective page. He did not reveal his identity so I cannot credit him. But here is the link:

While it is bad to ‘laugh’ at the failure of others, most (note: NOT ALL OF THEM) of the projects there are blatant money-grubbing folks who have completely NO idea what KS is about and probably just looking to rip money off genuine ‘KS users’ looking to support genuine ‘project creators who need help’.

Fantasy and Reality Blurring Further Everyday

If you haven’t heard of the game Shadow of Mordor, you probably have been the captive slave of some brightly colored teletubbie look-alike orc in the past year. Set in the same world as the famous Lord of the Rings series, this game rides on the popularity of the brand, and abuses it with a delicious stand-alone game overflowing with creativity. Imagine a Jedi knight in the world of LOTR – ya something lidat~

Anyway this post is here to share with you a really epic youtube video made for the game, by live actors. The special effects are simply amazing and I had to rewatch the video from 4:15 to 4:25 at least 20 times before I was satisfied enough to continue the rest of the video! It almost felt like I was the one leaping forward with that epic strike. Oops, shouldn’t reveal too much! Just go take a look, ya? Certainly well worth your time! Today, technology is slowly proving that the line between fantasy and reality is getting fainter by the day. Yes, and the night as well, thank you for adding.

Enuff said’ Here is the link:
