The manliest men of Final Fantasy: Part four

2:38 PM on 02.16.2007 // Faith

Yea! It's time again for more manly men from Final Fantasy games. *audience applause*

Now sit back and relax as we present to you the next three contestants in our list of manly men. All are very eager to meet you and have been waiting patiently in the wings for the last 3 days! Now that's patience.

You may want to check out the previous contestants on our show from the last three days before you hit the jump for today's group.

Part one

Part two

Part three  

What is your major malfuction, boy?!

Cid Highwind from Final Fantasy VII

Cid is a grumpy, foul-mouthed pilot who dreams of flying a rocket into space. He dreams are put on hold when the rocket malfunctions and Cid’s assistant aborts the launch. Cid’s weapons of choice are spears and lances.

Cid is always pictured with a smoke in his mouth and a pack of smokes tucked in his goggle’s strap. Any man willing to smoke around rocket fuel must have big set of balls in my book. Cid reminds me of the old World War II aviators that risking their lives each time they went up against the enemy in the skies.

It's Agent 47

Rude from Final Fantasy VII

Rude is a bald-headed bad*ss that is never seen without his sunglasses. Trained as an assassin and sniper for the Turks, a group controlled the Shinra Corporation. Able to take huge amounts of damage, Rude has inhuman strength and tends to fight with his fists, much like Tifa.

Looking like Agent 47, Rude is another great example of a manly figure. With a goatee, bald head and multiple piercing, Rude’s look screams “Don’t mess with me, biatch”. Even in the movie, Rude is bashed over the head with a billboard and still comes back to fight.

Arg, I'm searching for Moby Dick

Ward Zabac from Final Fantasy VIII

Ward is a friend of Laguna’s who lost his voice in battle. He’s a big body builder type that carries a harpoon and never leaves the side of his friends. Laguna is lucky enough to understand Ward’s gestures and facial expressions enough to translate them into words. Ward becomes an official in Esthar, along with Laguna.

Silent and carries a big harpoon. He sounds manly to me.

Check back tomorrow for the last installment of manly men of Final Fantasy

Spiel was mightily expensive. Holy shit... Good thing I didn't bring more money with me, too. Saw enough stuff I'd love to own.

Trialling PS Now - review to come later - has reminded me of a piece of little-reported PS3 news. Owners of hacked PS3s could turn any PS2 game into a 'Classics' title and run them on a bog-standard PS3 with few issues.

Wanna ask a question for tomorrow's PStoid? You still have time! While you're at it don't forget to ask one for Riobux too!!

I caught a reflective mumbling about MGSV's open structure and how it doesn't sit well with me, to be published whenever I litter it with images.

I cast my little worm in to the pond for a topic to try to make a blog about today. I fish fish fish but nothing bites bites bites.

I cracked and bought Final Fantasy Dimensions on Android last night. Half off sounded like just the right price, though I wish this came out on 3DS or even the Vita but at least it gives me something to do on the porcelain throne!

Those N64-era THQ wrestling games have actually held up really well over the years. Take that, nostalgia!

Heading off to Spiel in a bit. A whole lot of games there, just of the cardboard variety. I love me some board games.

Finally finished The Witcher 3. Definitely one of the best games I've played in my 30 years or so of gaming. Now onward to Ground Zeroes/Phantom Pain.

If anyone's playing Marvel Puzzle Quest (any platform) you should join my Alliance, RedRightHand, and help me kick some Galactus butt for their second anniversary event. (Please?)

MGS Online Day 3. I have 3 character up to level 10 now, one in each class. They're all pretty handy, but I do miss the scout's mark speed the most on other classes.

The SW: Battlefront is pretty and has great sound design, but the gameplay is so shallow and has seemingly no depth! If the full game is like this I will be disappointed.

*looks at Amazon preorder* This one's for you Chib'

Dear Playboy: Love your video game coverage, but how about you start making some topless unboxing videos? Seeing someone unwrap a copy of Call of Duty is boring. Seeing a topless Playmate unwrap a copy of anything is awesome!
