Speedrunners want to complete games or meet special conditions as fast as possible but some games are so massive that it can take days to get through them, even if you’re playing as quickly as possible.
While playing through a recently-released role-playing game for the Nintendo Switch, I got to thinking. Wouldn’t it be great if, instead of simply turning voice-over on or off, we could selectively mute individual characters? Who would you silence? Aside from Tidus.
As we cruise down the highway with our bros in Final Fantasy XV, it’s worth reflecting on the notable bromances and friendships throughout the series. Final Fantasy has a strong lineage of bros and I’ve collected some of the best of the bunch so you can learn what it means to be a real bro.
“My story,” says Tidus. “My ears,” I reply.
Some adventures cannot begin without naming your character. It’s when Final Fantasy Clouds can be Squalls. Or Freds. Some games provide the option to change your character’s name at the start screen. Others integrate protagonists’ intros and renaming prompts in clever ways. These five games do the latter.
You know that part in Final Fantasy X where Tidus tries to force himself to laugh in an attempt to cheer up Yuna? You know how it’s become sort of a running joke in video game localization? Turns out it came from an acting class.
The name “Tokyo RPG Factory” conjures a dreary image. An assembly line for role-playing games, perhaps, where dozens of masked workers flank a conveyor belt, smashing together parts: an oversized sword here, a Firaga there, a melancholy hero to tie it all together. Every day they must crank out a new RPG to be shipped…
Final Fantasy X originally came out on the PlayStation 2 in 2001. One modder is trying to make it conform to modern PC gaming standards—with mixed results.
Final Fantasy X, a video game about ghosts playing soccer, showed up on Steam this week alongside its peppy sequel, FFX-2. Seems like they’ll be coming to PC soon.
There’s a challenge in Final Fantasy X (and an achievenemt in FFXHD) that tests the player’s ability to dodge lightning. It’s really hard for humans, but luckily, humans can build robots to help.
OK, so almost everyone in Final Fantasy dresses terribly, but Nick Wanserski at AV Club makes a pretty strong case for Tidus being the absolute worst. Why? The wallet chain is not helping.
Square Enix have announced that the Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD remasters for the PS4 will be out on May 12.
According to video games, the only thing I'm interested in—when I'm not being lazy—is sunshine, fun and carefree living. In the world of video games, this is the stereotypical Caribbean person.
With Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, Square Enix has closed the Final Fantasy XIII chapter and is moving on. Just kidding, of course it isn't. Hope you like reading and words and stuff!
With a little redesign, Final Fantasy characters would make pretty cool Pokémon trainers. You just have to find the matching Pokémon for them. Artist Andrew Ryan did just that. Gotta love Barrett with his Pokéball launcher arm.
Recreating Sin—the whale-like gargantuan final boss of Final Fantasy X—in Minecraft was probably a bit harder than usual since you can't really build it pixel by pixel. Still, Pero's piece looks awesome, just like the original from the PS2 game.
The gaming industry is constantly full of rumors. More so in April where you have the gullible falling for all the crazy April Fools pranks that pop up.
I owe a lot to Final Fantasy X.
