Vita To Be Final Fantasy Heaven?

June 30, 2012 Leave a comment

With the recent news of the DS version of Final Fantasy 3 being ported to the PSP, I can’t help but revisit this particular subject.  Not just that the PSP is a gold mine for Final Fantasy titles, but what it all means for the Vita.

As we know, the Vita can emulate pretty much any PSP title that’s on the PSN.  We also know that PS1 Classics will be coming to the Vita this summer.  Finally, we know that Final Fantasy X will be getting an HD version on the Vita.  Couple that with the rumors of Type-0, and the possibilities of FFXII HD following FFX HD.  It’s madness!

Theatrhythm: Why I’m terrible At Rhythm Games

May 11, 2012 Leave a comment

Since the early days of Dance Dance Revolution, I’ve been trying to get into the beat, rhythm, and step games.  Granted step games never worked for me because I’m… well not quick on my toes.  However I gave DDR a proper go on the PC and enjoyed it a little.  After a few weeks of that, I really gave up on the scene.  I never touched Guitar Hero or anything of the like.  However recently I dabbled a little into a Miku rhythm demo game on PSP.

Over all these games I realized something really important.  I’m terrible at rhythm games.  To be honest I kind of dislike the genre.  So when someone asks me, “You’re getting Theatrhythm?? Are you mad?!”  It’s no surprise.  Frankly, if it weren’t for the Final Fantasy aspect, I’d not touch this game with a 10 foot pole.  It’s really the fact that I absolutely LOVE Final Fantasy music.  It’s been a huge part of my life and their music has always moved me like no other music I’ve listened to.

Today, I watched a few videos posted by IGN for Theatrhythm and I remembered why I’m so terrible at Rhythm games.  It’s a simple fact that I always feel like I’m missing something when I play these.  Rhythm games are always riddled with visuals in the background that have either someone dancing, a scenic view, or many other things.  I just can’t help but look at anything but the beat indicator.  When watching the Theatrhythm videos, I realized I’m so going to be failing at this game.  Each song has either amazing nostalgic CGIs like FF8’s ballroom scene, a battle scene with classic monsters, or field music with all the sites of the original game’s world.

I’m so in trouble…

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy will be releasing in the US on July 3rd for the Nintendo 3DS.

Final Fantasy VI Review

April 18, 2012 Leave a comment

It’s been so long since I first played this Super NES classic. Back in 1994 it was named the 3rd installment of Final Fantasy in the US. Of course for Japan, it was the 6th.  Since then it has been remade/ported for Gameboy Advanced, Playstation 1, Wii, PSN, and soon 3DS.

The story follows a band of warriors that come together to thwart the plans of an evil empire that seeks to draw the magic from beings known as Espers.  The Espers were magic infused humans who were sealed away into another world after a catastrophic war known as the War of the Magi, one thousand years prior.
