Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule
By oblivion437
Posted on 01/12/15
I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Bringing The Past To The Present Of The Future, Now

Posted on Thursday, May 11 @ 19:51:25 Eastern by Tim_Tackett
We like options. 3 sizes, 31 flavors, 5 modes, and so on. The good folks at Square-Enix know it too, and at this year's E3 they promise as many spinoffs, versions, and sequels than you could swing a Moogle at, on everybody's favorite hardware.

What system, you ask? Our answer? Probably. Square-Enix is set to bring the ruckus on everything from cell phones to consoles that don't even exist yet. We all know Final Fantasy XII is looming over the PS2, but the PSP can expect a sweet looking port of the classic Valkyrie Profile, originally for PSOne. It sports new CGI cutscenes, goes by the handle Valkyrie Profile Lenneth, and has a big sister coming to PS2 named Silmeria. PSP also gets FFVII: Crisis Core, an action-RPG centering around prolougue events to FFVII and stars black-haired Cloud look-alike named Zack.

And like we wish we could every time we hit 'post', Square keeps going back to the past to turn its mistakes into profit. Later this year, the DS will see the long awaited North-American release of the original Japanese Final Fantasy III, in full 3-D and capable of being controlled entirely with the stylus, and very well at that. Last in the line of ports is FFV Advance and FFVI Advance, bringing another title from over the pond (V) and one from the SNES (VI in japan was III in the U.S.).

I caught wind of a swashbuckling Wii title called Dragon Quest Swords, but DS owners will receive DQ love first with a little ditty by the name of Rocket Slime, which is bizarre enough to only be explainable with a series of diagrams, arrows, and yelling.

Anyway, back to the Future, A.K.A. Final Fantasy XIII. Shrouded in mystery and flashing lights, I left a viewing wondering if I was actually given any real information, so i'll tell you exactly what I know. For starters, there will be a Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy Versus XIII , and Final Fantasy Agito XIII. With the exception of Agito for mobile phones, FFXIII will be coming to you via PS3.

As far as what was really seen, there was a seriously badass girl with guns and teleporty powers, a brooding figure fighting an army with about 20 airborne swords and his mind, and some hot bits of seamless transferring between FMV and gameplay. There's also a hundred invisible arrows pointing toward cross-platorm/game interaction, as all three titles may or may not be released as all or a part of a single compendium named FABULA NOVA CRYSTALLIS or, 'the new tale of the crystal'. There's been hints of these only being the beginning, as well.

Vague enough for you?

Just in case, I'm not making any big social plans for....ever.
