Trials and Tails and Oxy-Ales – Final Fantasy I #5

Well, we all knew it would happen one day. Our little Warriors of Light have leveled all up and it’s time for them to get Jobs. But to do that we’re gonna have to prove ourselves to Bahamut, the King of Dragons. Why? I dunno. He’s the one handing out promotions? Then it’s off to run some errands to get ready to tackle the Water Shrine… Where is the Water Shrine anyway?

That was the Prologue? – Final Fantasy I #2

Wait, you’re telling me that defeating pirates, exorcising mindflayers, removing a dark elf usurper, fetching Jolt Cola for a sleepy prince, and blowing up the entire west coast is the PROLOGUE?

The Final Fantasy Retrospective Begins!

For years I’ve been wanting to go back and play through every Final Fantasy game I could get my hands on. Explore them all with my now-adult eyes and mind and critique them with a more mature perspective. I love this series, I think I’ve made that clear through the years on this blog.

So in honor of NaNoSTREAMo (My attempt at trying to stream a little bit on my twitch channel every day in November), it seemed like a great chance to dig back into the series. I’ll be starting on November 1st, and you can check my various start times on my Twitter. I’ll be checking out the following titles in the series:

  • Final Fantasy: Dawn of Souls (I and II)
  • Final Fantasy III (Remake)
  • Final Fantasy IV (Remake)
  • Final Fantasy V (Steam/Mobile version)
  • Final Fantasy VI (Steam/Mobile version)
  • Final Fantasy VII (PC)
  • Final Fantasy VIII Remastered
  • Final Fantasy IX HD
  • Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster
  • Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age
  • Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions
  • Final Fantasy XIII/XIII-2/Lightning Returns
  • Final Fantasy XV: Royal Edition
  • World of Final Fantasy Maxima

That’s 18 games. I have no clue how long it will take me to get through them all. Hopefully before Final Fantasy XVI comes out? I hope you will be able to come and join to talk and discuss the series and the various games. I’ll be bringing my usual amount of insight that you are used to on this site with these games.

Naturally, the VODs from the streams will be backed up on my YouTube channel and posted on here.

Wish me luck and thank you as always for your support!

Welcome to the (Live) Show!

I apologize for being quiet around here lately.  Between my real job picking up with a big new project and my own little side adventure I’ll be getting into in the moment, I haven’t had a lot of time to post.  It happens.  But hey, that’s just the bad news.  The good news is you’ll have a chance to see a lot more of me coming soon if you enjoy my trademark wit, dry observations, and eccentric ramblings.

We are going live on Twitch!

Previously I had been testing the waters out with the Premiere system – kind of like YouTube videos on Twitch but with the videos premiering “Live” at a set point before being added to an archive.  Now the current plan is still to do those, but augment it with nights where I’ll be broadcasting games live.  The premieres will be used for migrating my YouTube archive over to Twitch, weeks were I know I won’t be available, or for videos I need to do more post-production work on like the Sims 4 videos where I have overlays showing how much money I have and how far into my challenge I am.  That in mind, my Twitch Schedule both here and on my Twitch page will make note of when a broadcast is Live or a Premiere.

The schedule is still remaining a static every 2nd and 4th wednesday at 6pm PST.  If you’re interested, you can always go and give me a follow on Twitch.  It doesn’t cost anything (that’s ‘Subscribing’) and you can set it up to let you know when I go live with a broadcast.

The reason this has taken so long is that well, I’m a stickler for appearance.  Regardless of whether its a source of income or not, I work hard to make the visuals and flow of this website something that’s at least aesthetically pleasing to me.  I like it when I can present myself in a way that I am happy with and not just with some default slapdash thing.  So I have been working on developing overlays for my Stream – at least enough to start with, some functions are still defaults with some customization tossed in.  I’ve been building up a theme, getting music, setting up software…  I just want to be able to display something I’m proud of.

From the visuals to the text, we’re going full Carnie on this one.

After the liveshows on Twitch, they’ll be uploaded to YouTube some time within the following week and likewise posted here when they do.  So just because you miss out on the live part, doesn’t mean you’ll have to miss out completely.

I would like to thank everyone on here, Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr for their support in this endeavor.  It’s not a full time thing, it’s not even a replacement for this blog, but it is the most important thing – something I have fun doing.  As always, if you have comments, suggestions or even constructive criticisms I always happily welcome them.
