The trouble with playing an MMO during a private Beta is you normally won't have any data carried over from your character when the full game releases. This was defiantly the case for me since I played the Beta over 20+ hours over the summer and didn't just want to repeat my experience when the time came to start playing the full game. So I did something I normally never do and picked a brand new character that looked like my old one, but picked a much different class.Read More
Final Fantasy XIV is about to launch at the end of August on PC and PS3. The beta is now coming to a close and now we will take a look back at how the beta went. I will be taking a look at many different aspects that happened during the beta such as combat, exploration, presentation, and many more elements from the beta of the game.Read More
For the past quarter of a century, the main Final Fantasy games have been known for memorable stories, grandiose soundtracks, and consistently offering a difficult challenge to players. Starting 25 years ago with the original Final Fantasy, the challenge was there even in an age of games that required a lot of time and effort to complete. While some may be turned off by the difficult nature of the games, others thrive off it and praise each iteration for this specific reason
We all have had that day when a brand new Final Fantasy releases and you just start playing it as soon as you can. Then that fateful boss or sudden random encounter halts you right in your tracks and gives you a beating so quick, that you do a double take. This is a moment I like to refer to as "the wall" and you will either give up after a few tries or do whatever it takes to power through that challenge halting your progression.
Going along with a recent Square Enix survey, which asked fans to say what they liked about Final Fantasy XIII's main protagonist, we decided to follow suit. After all, if they can do it, why shouldn't we be able to?
To that end, this episode's Burning Question also revolves around Lightning, one of the leading lights in Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy. We'd like to know What do you like, or dislike about Lightning?.
If you're even remotely clued in with anything that's been going on this year, you should have noticed that Square Enix and Final Fantasy fans around the world have been celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Final Fantasy. Yay!
We have been pretty quiet about it thus-far in terms of our written content, although if you listen to the podcast things have been a little bit different. However, that's all going to change. There were plans at the start of the year to play through each of the main games (swapping in XIII for XI) and do extensive features, but other commitments unfortunately got in the way.
Instead, in the build-up to Christmas, we're going to try and post a different piece of content roughly each day, to try and mark what makes Final Fantasy a special franchise for us here on Final Fantasy Union. Please also feel free to share your thoughts too! To start things off, what better place than Final Fantasy I.
Nearly 3 years ago, 3 Warriors of Light hosted a podcast dedicated to a very special series called Final Fantasy. Warriors have come and gone, but the podcast still lived on.
Now with the 70th episode on the horizon, our warriors have decided it was time for a Special Questions Episode where fans all across the land may ask what they so do desire.
We only ask that you leave those questions below as our Warriors won't be able to see them otherwise.
