… Miracles from realms beyond…


I had never heard this song before last Thursday and it is quite good. Of course, it is Final Fantasy music. 🙂

And where was I when I first heard this great song? Why, at the Distant Worlds concert in San Francisco!

Oh yes.

This was an amazing concert and a much better ‘real’ start to my trip in California after my flight got delayed a day. And guess who was at the concert?

Find out!

Crisis Core… it’s over…!

Doesn’t it kinda look like a Kingdom Hearts cover artwork?

I cried. Twice.
And this is seriously saying something because I’ve never cried after reading any story or watching any movie in my life. I’d say the closest I came to watery eyes would be at the end of the Sailor Moon manga, but I was bawling here. And I even quickly played through the whole game again the next day (and loved every moment of it even more if that’s possible) and I still cried. Possibly more. I was so immersed into this story and the awesome and fairly interactive ending even though I knew what was coming, but it was amazing. I can’t really say anything more than that.

But of course, I will.
And it will be after my SPOILERS AHOY warning.
There.

Before we dive in, I just want to say if you live in LA, you have to go see this and send me more pictures so I can live through you vicariously. The Square-Enix blog says it’s at the corner of S. Figueroa Street and Olympic Boulevard in Downtown Los Angeles. I wish I could see the real thing. And it’s kinda funny that it’s overtop the Grand Theft Auto poster. Take that! lol.

Use brings about wear, tear, and rust. And that’s a real waste.

Shall we dive into the world of Gaia?

Some news

So…
Final Fantasy IV DS was released last Tuesday. (Man, I want a DS…)
Here’s the official site with an awesome version of the Theme of Love playing in the background. I love that song, as well as the vocal version, Tsuki no Akari.

So pretty! I’m pretty sure there’s a longer version too, but I’m still looking for it…

Here’s another reason to get a DS: The official site for Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (That’s pronounced “Three Five Eight Days Over Two”. I know it’s weird, but we’ve been told it has some importance to the story. Supposedly… but I think that’s just to keep us thinking about the title.) has been launched. There’s not too much, and it is in Japanese, but translations can be found here. And the music playing in the background seems to be a new mix of The Other Promise, which is a pretty sad song… And just to be sure, No Release Date Has Been Announced. Thank you.

And lastly, Comic Con in San Diego is going on! No fair… I wanted to go… There’s always something interesting going on there… maybe next year? Hmm…

So… yeah. Shorter post than those of recently, but you gotta change it up every so often, right?

Square’s latest move…

So yeah, it has been recently announced that Final Fantasy XIII will be released on the Xbox 360! (WHAT!) But wait, it will still be released on the PS3 (phew…). If you didn’t notice yet, I just don’t like Xbox. I don’t like the kind of games that they have, but it seems like everyone is moving to it… I just don’t like Microsoft in the gaming industry. I guess I don’t really have a reason, but that’s just the way it is (I know that’s stupid, but too bad).
Even though FFXII will be released for the PS3 and the 360, it is going to be a major blow to Sony. This was one of their biggest franchises that they had exclusiveness on. I, like many people, had planned to buy a PS3 for this game (and for other Square games), but as the comments I have seen for the video on Youtube, everyone’s saying that they don’t have to buy a PS3 anymore. I will still buy a PS3 because I just don’t like Xbox, but if more Square games are moving, I may have no choice… I guess another reason why I don’t like Xbox/Microsoft is because they’re taking everything. This is what the Microsoft representative (didn’t catch the name) said in that video:

Final Fantasy joins a long list of former Playstation franchises that are finding a new home on Xbox 360. It happened with Madden and Guitar Hero, it’s happening now with Grand Theft Auto and Resident Evil, and it will happen with Final Fantasy.

I don’t like that cocky attitude, even if it comes true. Poor Sony… But somehow, I think Sony will come back even stronger in the long run. I think that although the PS3 isn’t as big right now, it will last longer and stay for at least another generation. At least, I hope…

Rumours…?

So, yesterday, KHInsider posted saying that there’s a rumour going around that Kingdom Hearts 2:Final Mix+ (or maybe just Re:Chain of Memories) is going to have a North American release? With the Will has been saying there have been auditions for the voices of Vexen, Lexaeus, Zexion, Marluxia, and Larxene and saying the game is Chain of Memories, confirmed by multiple sources. (so probably not for 358/2 Days, even though they’ll probably use the same voices for that when it comes to NA too).

My thoughts? I’m still unsure. NA has never gotten any of the International versions or “Mixes” of any Square games before (as far as I know) and I’m just skeptical as to why they’d start doing so now. I mean, there’s no doubt that I would love to see KH2:FM+ (or even just Re:CoM) have an NA release, but that’s not following what Square usually does. The voice casting auditions do seem to counteract what I just said, but I’m still unsure. If they’re going to release this special version here, are they going to release other ones as well? Like Final Fantasy XII International: Zodiac Job System? Or just special versions from now on? Or maybe this is a one-time deal? We don’t know that much right now, and we probably won’t learn anything from E3 since KH is not even going to make an appearance! But at least it will be at DKΣ3713 (the Square Enix Party)… so maybe we’ll find out in August? Ah… so many questions… just leading to more of them… grr…
