In Other News – 18 June 2015

3 min read


E3 is nearly over, sadly. It’s been great, providing us with all the news of gaming experiences we can look forward to. Among all the new titles, I think the one I am most excited for is Final Fantasy VII. Sorry, I am a big fan, and it’s something I really can’t wait to see!

As happy as I am that it is getting a remake, a part of me continues to despise Square Enix for completely ignoring one of the other greats, Final Fantasy VI. Other titles, like Final Fantasy I and IV, have seen remakes over and over again, while the vastly superior VI remains oddly unloved.

Why am I so bitter that it isn’t getting any proper attention? Well, it originally released in 1994, but I only played it much later, in 2009 or so. Even 15 years after the original release, I was taken by it.


I loved the game from beginning to end! It kept me up till the early hours of the morning and multiple occasions. I was genuinely gobsmacked that a game from the SNES era was that immersive, that long, and that good. Everything about it, the characters, the battles, and the story, was simply top notch.

Come on Square, let me face the evil Kefka once more! He is by far my favourite Final Fantasy antagonist, making the others look like nothing more than harmless kittens with large swords which are overcompensating for… something.

  1. More Final Fantasy? Meh.

            If you’ve never played it, I’d advise getting it.

          Maya was awesome. Turn-based combat is great, don’t know why people hate on it.

            They closed down if I remember correctly. Around the same time or just before Bullfrog.

    I read that AMD’s Project Quantum (Which is like a mini pc monster) will be using a INTEL processor for its cpu…. Says a lot about AMD cpu if they go and place a intel cpu into a AMD made project.
