Staff Blog

We love a good feature here at Final Fantasy Union! We look to provide an interesting spectrum of hard hitting opinion pieces, mixed in with lighter features around cosplay, fun facts and our adventures in Final Fantasy XIV. We appreciate you might not be interested in everything we do that's off the beaten path, but there's at least something for eveyone!

Hello everybody, it's been ages since the last staff blog - and cosplay feature, for that matter - but I'm back this week with some random things to talk about. No, I'm not going to talk about peaches, I think we've all heard enough about that?...

The Misadventures Of Final Fantasy Union: You Can't Dodge Fate

First, I want to start be apologising for the lack of a comic last week. We did plan ahead and start working on this episode super early, but things didn't really go to plan, especially with E3 slap-bang in the middle of when it was supposed to come out! Hopefully you...

Staff Blog: The Trials Of E3

Hello hello people! Colin here and I've commandeered the staff blog for the week. Well, I was supposed to do it last week but it seems that I had neglected to. The site's looking great, activity-wise, not visually. No no, I would be praising myself if I said that! Well it's...
