That video looks more like something that they'd produce for a big medley at Distant Worlds, heh. Is it possible that they're losing their touch for trailers for undisclosed information?!

Also, I find it amusing that after the 16-bit era, they stopped showing clips in battle? FMV forever, baby.

And EE, how come you only linked to, like, half the games we cover? You got lazy.

That video actually manages to make me want to play FF8 and FF9 slightly more than I did before I watched it.

How depressing my childhood gone so fast at the blink of an eye.I remember playing ff1 on the nes in my beach house when i was 10 years old and remembering how i had fun playing the game and enjoyed gurguru volcano music.

I would like to celebrate with this:

But that's definitely more than I've ever paid for a single bottle of wine.

First time I saw those boxes, I thought they were Xenomorph fanart.

They're now looking for people to make new arrangements of the Main Theme so they can make a fan video of them. Part of that announcement is a brief interview with Uematsu about it. Pretty neat.

Hm. So they're accepting covers/re-arrangements of the Bridge Theme aka Main Theme of Final Fantasy?

Neato! ...I wonder if I could put something together.
