My name is Red. My humble gaming beginning consisted of watching my cousins play games on the nintendo famicom from 9 in the morning til 3. Then I had to go away to the land of sand where I was trained to be a ninja of the sand to fight terrorism. My training consisted of the Sega Mega Drive 2 which came prepackaged with AlienStorm, which was once dubbed as "Showgirls of video games" by the Concelmo. Later on I moved on to the Playstation. Due to my limited funding and due to game publishers in the US not caring about Ninjas training in the sand like me, I resorted to black market alternatives. My great gaming memories consisted of pirated games which I had plentiful of due to the lack of giving a damn by the local authorities. All those games kept me sane in the desert wasteland. I was a prisoner in my own ninja fortress. Then all my training was for naught when the US military beat me to my ultimate mission: CAPTURE SADDAM HUSSEIN. But then they discovered that he was an impostor. Intelligence reports point out that he is where I am stationed now: TEXAS. My mission continues on.

A current trend these days in marketing products is using the creative minds behind the product as a spokesperson to sell their products. In a stroke of marketing genius, French retailer FNAC, is using the mug of the master of the Japanese RPG himself, Hironobu Sakaguchi to advertise the upcoming release of The Last Story in one of their branches in Paris, France.
That's not all they're doing, they're also celebrating the upcoming release of The Last Story on the 24th of February with an autograph session with Sakaguchi himself. This is really how you need to market to your audience these days, using a a recognizable and respectable figure like Sakaguchi to advertise your product instead of some actor who has no clue about that the hell they're selling.
