Dissidia 012 Duodecim!!!

Yes! Thank God this game didn’t get canceled because of the Tsunami/Earthquake in Japan. I would’ve cried if it had. T_T

Anyway, yes, Final Fantasy Dissidia 012 Duodecim (wow! that’s a mouthful!) is released. Actually, it’s been released last March, but in case you didn’t notice, I’m a little behind on gaming news. ~_~

ME WANTS IT!!!

I think I should try and upgrade my PSP now… hopefully I could do so before the Holy Week… so I can play it non-stop during my vacation. XD

Sephiroth is still so hawt! XD

Fashion Tips for the Rainy Season

Photobucket

Oh man, so many of my beloved shoes are going to get so wrecked again. I’m going to need more shoebuy coupons just in case my favorite leather pumps plunges into the abyss. Wahahaha!

Anyway, since it’s the rainy season again, floods are going to be prevalent across all the streets of Manila again. In fact, just yesterday while passing through the Ortigas Extension, yours truly just stuck in a major traffic jam because of waist deep flooding, not to mention I watched all those people who looked their best, but unfortunately who’s clothes got all muddied.

So here I am, to offer you some fashionista tips (harhar) on how to look good during the rainy season. XD

Wear Boots: During the rains, it’s best to say adieu to your favorite stilettos or heels. In fact, you should opt for boots or rubber slippers instead. Leather is a big “no-no” during the rains. Your expensive leather or suede shoes may get spoiled completely.

Carry protective gear: Carrying protective gear to stay safe from rains is an absolute must for all. After all, you would not want your favorite dress to get spoiled. Always carry a folding umbrella or raincoat with you. It is always better to carry an over sized umbrella than get wet and resemble a scarecrow!

Bright colors: Ransack your wardrobe and dig out clothes in bright colors (but also avoid whites XD). Rainy season is known for dark gloomy clouds. Do not let the weather bog you down. Instead, don bright colors that will not only make you look good but also help to lift your dampened spirits.

Bags: It is advisable to carry big plastic bags during rains. Big bags are required to carry your umbrella or raincoat. After all, you would not want to be stranded in the rains without one. Keep your nice suede or velvet bags for other occasions. Stick to plastic during the rains as they require zilch maintenance.

Final Fantasy VII on the PS3… NOT!

Yep, as it turns out, SquareEnix (formerly SquareSoft) is not remaking one of their greatest games, Final Fantasy VII, for the ps3.

It was rumored that FFVII will be remade for the ps3 after this technical demo of the game was shown during 2009 E3. It showed the opening sequence of the Final Fantasy VII, and it showed how the PS3’s capabilities would complement the game. Fans immediately assumed there was going to be a remake.

However, in one interview Yoshinori Kitase, a game producer for SquareEnix, has debunked these rumors saying that the clip was just a mere demonstration.

As for me, being a HUGE Final Fantasy fan, it left me pretty disappointed. I mean, SquareEnix were able to release games like Dissidia: Final Fantasy, and other FF titles, and yet they cannot remake the FFVII? I’m pretty sure a lot of fans would love to Sephiroth in his full 3-D glory, or even Tifa in her full busty 39D beauty… whoops~! XD

Anyway, the PS3 is still pretty pricy here in the Philippines, not to mention there are only a few notable games for it (GOD OF WAR 3!!!). So in the meantime, while I wait for the console to cheapen a bit, I’ll spend my days trying to reach the frickin’ orange button on my Guitar Hero.

Dissidia is Final Fantasy Fangirl’s Wet Dream…

I swear it is…

So, I promised you guys a little blog about this game I am SO addicted to called “Dissidia: Final Fantasy”. And for FF (Final Fantasy) fans, yes, the title is in reverse.

Anyway, I know it’s been delayed, since Dissidia has been released months ago, but somehow, I get the feeling that very few fans appreciate the game. More particularly, very few female fans of the series appreciate it. So, here is an obsessed fans view of the game…

IT IS TOTALLY AWESOME! ^_^V

I came upon Dissidia late last March, after seeing the Japanese trailer of the game in Youtube. At first I thought it was a joke, I mean, who wouldn’t? Any fan of FF would think that it was impossible because there were too many characters in the FF series… how were they supposed to pick which ones to put in? But as it turns out, IT’S REAL! Hooray for Tetsuya Nomura and his FF genius!!! *bows down to Nomura’s godlike ability*

Anyway, ever since we got it, I’ve been so into it that right now, my sister hadn’t leveled up her characters in her other games (sorry Onee-chan ~_~), I have 4 characters in level 100 (soon to be 5 XD), and have so much Gil (the game’s monetary unit), that I don’t know where to spend it. But then, I have really crappy armor, so yeah… ~_~

Dissidia is a game about the typical battle between good and evil, but with a twist. Evil won the battle this time around, and hence, the characters have to fight to restore order in the world. Oooops, said some spoilers here didn’t I? Anyway, even with the spoilers, you’ll still want to play the game because
of the plot, storylines and battles.

There are a total of 22 characters you can play, 2 of them being hidden. 10 characters have storylines that you can play. The other 10 are the antagonists who spellcast, hit and laugh at you on your way to victory. These characters are:

FFI: Warrior of Light & Garland
FFII: Firion & The Emperor
FFIII: Onion Knight & Cloud of Darkness
FFIV: Cecil Harvey & Golbez
FFV: Bartz & Exdeath
FFVI: Terra & Kefka Palazzo
FFVII: Cloud Strife & hunky Sephiroth (Yes, I <3 Sephiroth)
FFVIII: Squall Leonhart & Ultimecia
FFIX: Zidane Tribal & Kuja
FFX: Tidus & Jecht

Each one of these characters have different strength and weaknesses, hence different playstyles. The player can choose which ones to use and therefore, abuse, to their liking. My personal preference is Sephiroth and Onion Knight, but that’s just me.

There are also several battle modes to choose from, and other things you can do in the game. Tired of Cloud’s Shinra uniform or Sephiroth’s black cloak? You can purchase alternate costumes for them in the game’s PP (Purchase Points) catalog. And soon you’ll be kicking butts with an Advent Children Cloud or (my personal favorite) the Shirtless, 6-pack ab-muscled Sephiroth. *falls off chair because of fangirl hysteria*

The game is not your average fighting game though. It still requires a great amount of thinking, planning and hand-eye coordination. Instead of a map to get to your final goal, you’ll playing in a sort-of chessboard, wherein the character you choose navigates its way. One wrong placing and you could get confronted with an overpowered foe! Yeah, that happened to me more than once. ~_~

And for FF perfectionists… those who tried to beat Ozma in FFIX, or completed the Cards in FFVIII, or learned all the skills in the Sphere Grid in FFX… the game also has a lot of completion quests for you that I’m sure you’ll be more than happy to finish! As I’m not that much of a game perfectionist, I’ll leave that part for you to discover. ^_~v

Also, being a fangirl, I’m not just attracted to the game’s graphics, battle styles, and challenges, but I’m the most attracted to the characters. Yep, Dissidia is a Bishounen (that’s pretty boy in Japanese) Haven. Sephiroth (granted he looks better in Crisis Core) looks awesome with his Masamune, as well as Cloud, Firion and Warrior of Light. Heck, even Ultimecia’s cleavege never looked yummier. HARHARHAR! Although, the only problem I have with the characters is Squall. He seems a bit… too emo for me in the game. Hmm… I guess it’s just me.

Anyway, I’m too psyched about this game, BUT!… I’m going to leave it you guys. Love it or hate it, COMMENT IT ALL!!!! Harharhar! All I know is, for me, it is a game that every FF fan should get and play.

But, it’s Monday, so it’s back to work. But come Sunday… BARTZ IS GOING TO LEVEL UP TO 100!!! Harharhar.
