Michael Crichton Partners With Sega!,73286,

Michael Crichton, author of many famous sci-fi books like Jurassic Park, Lost World, Sphere, Airframe, and also the executive producer of ER, has partnered with Sega to develop a game.  No details are mentioned about the premise of the game, but most likely it will be Sci-fi like many of his creations.  In fact, the only details that are available are that the game will be available for release sometime around 2004.  When one of the greatest storytellers and one of the greatest video game manufacturers join hands, who knows what great things they can accomplish together?

Sony Moves 10 Million PS2s

Playstation 2
...In under five months!

According to a press release today from Sony, 40 million total Playstation 2 consoles have been sold worldwide. Naturally, the United States has seen the most, with nearly eighteen of those forty million units.

Let's look at that from another angle, shall we? There are rougly a quarter-billion people in the United States right now. Eighteen million of them have a PS2. This is a taste over seven percent of the population as a whole - a staggering number for a video game console, especially one that is so young as the PS2 still is.

With ten million pieces moved in under half a year, it appears that the PS2 is just now hitting its stride in a way that the PSX started to do soon after the release of FF7. It seems more than feasable to believe that the PS2 could overtake the NES as the largest-selling console ever in a few years.

Skies of Arcadia Legends North American Release Co

Skies of Arcadia, originally on the Dream Cast, is now being re-released for the GameCube. In time for the new year, it will be out in North America sometime in January of 2003.

From what I can tell of the article, the game is still the same in plot and format, and is still a great RPG if you hadn't played it already on the DC. It may not be a Final Fantasy, but it's still worth a try ^-^

Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix Release Date

Gamefront reports that Square's Kindom Hearts' (being made in cooperation with Disney) limited edition release, called Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix, will be released in Japan on December 26th, 2002. Kingdom Hearts features characters from Disney and Squaresoft, together in a single adventure to stop what's known as "The Heartless." Some of the features include summoning Disney characters such as The Genie or Dumbo to help you in battle.

This is pretty good news for those looking forward to this game. December is only a few short months away, and the US release of the normal version is imminent. Personally, I'm looking forward to the game, so yay.

Another New Fanfic

Caves of Narshe Site News
Thanks to NP's refusal to let me forget, I finally have his series "The Lights" in the Fanfics - FF6 section. We have the Prologue, Terra and Gau: The Learning Lights, Celes: The Endangered Light, and Shadow: The Lost Light all available for your reading pleasure.

These fics took a LONG time to convert, and I am not going to guarantee they are completely error-free at this moment. Please feel free to contact me with errors.

Hey dudes and dudettes,

I am selling all of my video games on ebay - They're just too much of a distraction right now, and I really need the money, so if you need any of this stuff, please bid!

Final Fantasy X game and guide (all games and guides are sold separately)
Final Fantasy IX game and guide
Final Fantasy VIII game and guide
Final Fantasy VII game and guide
Final Fantasy Tactics
Final Fantasy Anthology
Medal of Honor and Medal of Honor: Underground (together)
Unreal Tournament

If you guys want to buy more than one thing, let me know and we can work out a deal on shipping.  I also will be selling these once i go back home and get them (I will notify everyone again when i put them up):

Final Fantasy II SNES cart
Final Fantasy III SNES cart
Secret of Mana Cart
Chrono Trigger Cart
Lunar: the Silver Star Story for PSX
Phantasy Star II, III, and IV carts

I may also put my PS2 and GT3 up if I don't sell them to my brother.  

Oh, and by the way, I haven't been around much.  Sorry about that.  It's kinda hard to run a multimillion dollar business, be an honor student in a prestigious Big Ten University, be a tuba player in the greatest marching band in the country, be a ladies man, and be able to visit the CoN.  :rolleyes:

Edit: Durr...  I forgot the URL for the auctions... Final Fantasy X Auction

This is the FFX auction, you can view the others by clicking on my screename (HopperSMB).

New Quizzes

Caves of Narshe Site News
Seeing as you all think you're so incredibly CLEVER defeating my quizzes from last month, I've added a twist: from this month on, your quiz attempts will be timed.  Hopefully this will give my superior artificial intelligence even more cause to laugh at you pitiful humans for being slow and/or stupid.  Prove me wrong?  I'd like to see you try.

I suppose I should assist your weak minds with a link.
Caves of Narshe Quiz

And this time, I don't want to see anyone signing up just to take the quiz without ever posting at the forums.  Doing so would not be advisable.  Believe me.
