Mevius Final Fantasy

Mevius Final Fantasy looks kind of hot, aside from the mobile thing


A job-system-based save-the-girl-in-the-crystal mobile romp
Mar 10
I've got to hand it to Square Enix -- Mevius Final Fantasy does look impressive. Certainly no All the Bravest. I also don't want to play games on my cellphone so this is not for me. So it's fine that it is only coming to iOS and Android in Japan this spring. Though I am feeling the weird backless, capris overalls at 1:13. Wish I had back muscles like that. read

So *that's* how Sakaguchi got stuck making Final Fantasy after Final Fantasy


Mega64 does it again
Mar 06
"How'd they get him?" That question comes to mind when I go back and watch some of my favorite Mega64 videos. Somehow, there have been skits with big-name creators like Shigeru Miyamoto, Hideo Kojima, and Ken Kutaragi. Now here's another in that vein: "Hironobu Sakaguchi's Final Fantasy." Did he just staple his computer monitor? He just stapled his computer monitor. read

Man at Arms forges Auron's Katana from Final Fantasy X


My favorite FFX character
Feb 10
Man at Arms is a pretty badass video series that crafts fictional weapons in real life, and this time they're tackling Auron's Katana from Final Fantasy X. You'll be able to see the entire process in the 10 minute video, which condenses the smithing process. Even if you aren't a fan of the series it's still worth watching just for educational purposes. read
