Final Fantasy VI

The War of Magi left little but ashes and misery in its wake. Even magic itself had vanished from the world. Now, a thousand years later, humankind has remade the world through the power of iron, gunpowder, steam engines, and other machines and technologies.

I've had this episode uploaded to YouTube for quite some time and for some reason, today seemed like the right day to share it.

I continue my Let's Play of Final Fantasy VI and play though Locke's Scenario. Can I get the rich guy the cider? Will I be able to survive sneaking through this Imperial city? Only Bahamut know for sure.

Due to technical issues, I lost the last 1/4th of this stream. It's still a fun time just cut a bit short.

I started a play through of Final Fantasy VI and decided to do some let's plays of it. In this first episode I play through the Terra campaign on the way back to Narshe. I plan on doing a more formal review of the game in chunks over time and then write a bit about the different versions of the game and why I came to pick the Game Boy Advance version to play.

This is one of those Final Fantasy games that I actually have quite a few copies of. I have the SNES cart, which is actually called “Final Fantasy III” and I have the PSX version. I now have the Steam version and, like the other FF games I now own on Steam, I was not disappointed with this version, in fact I enjoyed it yet again.

Along with Steam achievements and trading cards, this version contains updated graphics, like the other FF games on Steam. The other major change for this version was the ATB. Instead of having a bar that gets more full and indicates when your character is ready to perform an action, the action menu rises to a point on the screen.

The other day I was talking to someone about the music of the original NES Ninja Turtles game and found a YouTube video featuring the main song. As I played it I noticed a link the comments where someone had captured all the music from classic games and made them available for download.

If you have wanted to relive some of the classic music from games you own on NES or Super Nintendo I seriously recommend you checkout YouTube or NES Sprites.

To keep with the hype train around Square releasing Final Fantasy VI on mobile, you should checkout the fast facts video above and the Final Fantasy VI Lore video. They both contain some really interesting information about the game and are pretty short to boot.

One of the greatest Final Fantasy games has finally come to the iOS and Android platforms. For $15.99 you can head back to the World of Balance and Ruin and join up with the Returners to take down Emporer Gestahl and the Empire. For me the Final Fantasy series didn't get much better than VI and I can't wait to pick it up but I might wait till the prices comes down a bit, $16 for a phone game is a bit much.

That said, it seems like Square has revamped some of the graphics and gameplay to make it a bit more mobile friendly. I still prefer the big chunky pixel graphics, but this update doesn't seem to take it too far away from the beauty of the original.

OverClocked Remix is paying tribute the Final Fantasy 3 by running a Kick Starter for its latest remix efforts. Its a pretty slick offering as the final product will span 4 discs of material. The line-up of people producing tracks is pretty impressive with: Danny Baranowsky, Jimmy Hinson and more.

If you drop $50 you get a 4 disc deluxe packaging of the remix album delivered right to your door. Oh and did I mention its a limited 1,000 print?

As of the time I posted this they have exceeded their goal and have 751 limited CD's left to nab!
