Final Fantasy VIII on PlayStation Network

Final Fantasy VIII had perhaps the hardest job of any game ever released on the Sony PlayStation -- it had to follow Final Fantasy VII. Despite being a very fine RPG in its own right, the comparisons to VII made it something of a black sheep for many years following its release. It wasn't VIII's fault, really. It's simply that gamers were bound to make themselves disappointed no matter what the next Final Fantasy was going to be.

Soon we will be able to relive those memories when Final Fantasy VIII comes to the PlayStation Network for use on the PS3 and PSP. The game just hit the Japanese PlayStation Store for 1,500 Yen and, given the fact that FF VII came to the West shortly after its JP release, we can hopefully expect VIII to arrive sometime in the near future. That's a very good thing. 

So, Final Fantasy VIII is on the way, or already here if you can understand Moon Speak. Who's excited? C'mon, admit that VIII really is quite a good game, even with that silly "Draw" system.

MAYBE I'M A LION!

Last week's top stories, now in handy haiku form

This past weekend I was up late and feeling loopy, and some haikus about a Flash game nobody cares about fell out of that state. Struck with inspiration, I thought, "Why can't all news be digested 17 syllables at a time?" Th...more
