About


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.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 came out today in USA and as one of those people who liked FFXIII, I thought I might want to check it out. I would've bought it but I am saving up for the PS Vita next month so I went to a Redbox instead to rent it a couple of bucks to see if good old Square Enix actually listened to their fans. They pretty much did.

So I fire the game up, see all the pretty action-y stuff in the beginning that made no sense at all and then get to the part where they actually show Serah and I hear a tune that sounds very familiar:

Now listen to the background music for a bit and skip to the 4:00 mark and listen a bit more.
HERE. I totally forgot how to embed videos on the C-blogs. Apologies.

If you're a Doctor Who fan like myself, that might sound a bit familiar and to me, it sounds a lot like this song "Onwards" from the 5th season of the new Doctor Who series:

Doctor Who - Onwards

Now I'm not versed in music but these songs have similarities to them and I can't really articulate as to which parts are the same. Could it be a possible reference since Doctor Who and FFXIII-2 have time travel elements? Will there be Daleks in Final Fantasy XIII-2? Gosh, I hope so. If you'll excuse me, I'm off to play some more FFXIII-2.
