So close, but still far away, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster is doing a fine job of showing why the PlayStation 3 will still have a place in your entertainment center. How fine of a job? About 50-plus screenshots worth of fine. So fine, so sexy, so fresh, so clean.
Final Fantasy X/ X-2 HD will release on December 26, 2013 in Japan, and in 2014 in all other territories. more

So I really like fashion. It's not to the extent that I can tell what label you're wearing. In fact I don't care about that aspect of fashion. I just care about what looks good. And Lightning looks so good in all of her outf... more
