Final Fantasy Concert

The 10-E was jam-packed, but the 10-W was pretty clear, so i made it to the concert hall about 6, which was a good thing.

The concert itself went great, until a giant octopus attacked part way through because he was annoyed that they didn't play Battle with Gilgamesh (aka "Clash on the Big Bridge.")

No, seriously. They didn't play Battle with Gilgamesh.

This last section has back of the box type spoilers. I can't imagine anyone would care, probably everyone who keeps up on the news has already heard this stuff, but you've been warned.

So they're boasting that thanks to technological advancements they can show a visually stunning update to a bunch of ruins? :)

Of course i'm not sure how much to trust anything in the booklet. From the description of FF 6: "Final Fantasy VI was the first in the series to feature several Final Fantasy mainstays such as summoning magic spells (the unique "Esper" magic system allowed character to cast over ninety different magic spells) and customizable character abilities."

Um, hello? I'm not sure about 2 and 3, but i _know_ that FF 4 had summons! I'm not really sure how FF 6 had "customizable character abilities," other than having them learn magic you couldn't do much to change their abilities, certainly you could do a lot more in FF 5 and maybe FF 3.

More FF7

Hey Kallah, have you seen this?

Final Fantasy VII: Before Crisis A new FF7 game featuring the Turks. The bad news is that it's a cellphone game, and it's unsure if it will come to the US or not.

In other news, the Nintendo DS looks really cool! and so does the new "mature" Zelda game!

Edit: I _was_ excited to find out about a GameCube Advance Wars, that is until i found out that it's not going to be turn-based strategy, and that it's being done by a different developer than the previous Advance Wars =P

I so wish i could go to E3 this year :( Damn $400. Damn requiring you to be currently employed.
