Final Fantasy Xiv Computer Peripherals Look as Stale as the Franchise

Final Fantasy Xiv Computer Peripherals Look as Stale as the Franchise
The PC version of Final Fantasy XIV will be released on September 30, so I wasn’t surprised when I learned that several FFXIV-themed peripherals were going to be released. But I was surprised by how ugly they look.

Final Fantasy Crystal Orb Collectible Being Sold for $250,000: Now That’S a Fantasy

Final Fantasy Crystal Orb Collectible Being Sold for $250,000: Now That’S a Fantasy
eBay member felixollie seems to have quite the treasure in his hands. It’s a rare Final Fantasy crystal orb that was given away by Nintendo Power magazine back in 1990. Only 50 were made, and this one is in very good condition.

The Gamer’S Bookmark

The Gamer’S Bookmark
It’s dangerous to read! Take this! It was designed by Oily Moss for Urban Outfitters, although I’m not sure if it’s a real product already. Also, I think it would make more sense if it said, “Save Complete” instead.

Kefka Perler Bead Mosaic: Epic Craft for an Epic Villain

Kefka Perler Bead Mosaic: Epic Craft for an Epic Villain
Final Fantasy’s Kefka is one of the most memorable characters in the history of JRPGs, more popular than a lot of heroes. So it wouldn’t be surprising to see a Kefka craft, even if it is very well done.

Leona Lewis (Paid to Say She) Loves Final Fantasy XIII

Leona Lewis (Paid to Say She) Loves Final Fantasy XIII
…at least the part of the game where she says she “runs around the land all day”. I’m no marketing expert, but I just personally find it weird for Square Enix to use 24-year old British singer Leona Lewis to promote Final Fantasy XIII.

Final Fantasy Xbox 360 Bundles on the Way

Final Fantasy Xbox 360 Bundles on the Way
Square Enix has just announced two new Xbox 360 bundles to commemorate the upcoming release of Final Fantasy XIII everywhere else but Japan, where people are already going bonkers for this game. Both bundles are available for pre-order and will be released on March 9th.

Final Fantasy Xiii Shiva and Odin Action Figures: Summon Them With Your Money

Final Fantasy Xiii Shiva and Odin Action Figures: Summon Them With Your Money
If there’s anything that the Final Fantasy series is known for, it’s character design. Notice I said known, not “famous” or “infamous”, because opinions among gamers go either way. Still, even if the human characters still come from the These Would Be Awesome for Cosplay School of Design, you’ve got to give it to the people who came up with the summons.

Final Fantasy Xiii Elixir Box Set Can Now be Yours: Drink Up!

Final Fantasy Xiii Elixir Box Set Can Now be Yours: Drink Up!
This insane collectible out of Japan is truly for you die-hard Final Fantasy fanatics out there. The set includes sixteen cans of Final Fantasy XIII “elixir”  – which is some sort of Suntory lemon-flavored concoction with three-times the normal amount of caffeine and royal jelly.

In Case of Danger: Final Fantasy Potion Earrings

In Case of Danger: Final Fantasy Potion Earrings
Just in time for the (Japanese) release of Final Fantasy XIII, we’ve got a pair of potion-inspired earrings. You just never know when you might need a potion or two, after all, what with enemies lurking around every corner, and if you’ve gotta carry protection, it might as well look good.

Final Fantasy Xiii Launched Today in Japan

Final Fantasy Xiii Launched Today in Japan
Square-Enix have finally unleashed the latest edition of the Final Fantasy franchise in Japan. This is the first game of the main series that has been released for the PS3. Final Fantasy XIII hit the shelves today in Japan where hundreds of people queued up in order to buy the  game.

Ffxiii’S Main Dame Gets Her Own Scent

Ffxiii’S Main Dame Gets Her Own Scent
It’s not every day you can start drawing comparisons between the Paris Hilton and the star of Final Fantasy XIII, and really, I’m not sure you’d want to. Beyond the light hair and the sometimes-questionable haircuts, I’m betting Paris and Lightning don’t have much in common.

Tonberry Cake Provides Inevitable, Edible Doom

Tonberry Cake Provides Inevitable, Edible Doom
I gotta say, there’s just something weirdly appropriate about a Tonberry cake, if only because those creepy little beasts come equipped with their own knives, the better for cutting your cake with. But I guess that would make them suicidal, or at least cutters, and that really doesn’t fit the Tonberry M.O.

Final Fantasy Xiv Will have No Experience Points: Does That Mean Everyone Stays at Level 1?

Final Fantasy Xiv Will have No Experience Points: Does That Mean Everyone Stays at Level 1?
The DVD included in Famitsu’s September issue includes a video clip of FF XIV producer Hiromichi Tanaka and director Nobuaki Komoto giving bits of info about the upcoming MMORPG. One of the things they revealed is that Final Fantasy XIV will have no experience points.

The Console Wars, Crafted

The Console Wars, Crafted
Who will win: the gigantor Xbox 360, or the lovable mascots of Nintendo? Unfortunately for Microsoft, the ‘box has been cast in the role of villain in this piece, and you know what happens to the villains….

Homemade Video Game Weapons: Keepin’ It Real Geeky

Homemade Video Game Weapons: Keepin’ It Real Geeky
I love the new Gamespy. Who else loves the new Gamespy! Before they were just another video game site, with previews, reviews, and tons of ads, except that they had Flintlocke. But now they have so much more to offer.

Final Fantasy Crystal Bearers Wii Game Trailer, Now With Helpful Subtitles

Final Fantasy Crystal Bearers Wii Game Trailer, Now With Helpful Subtitles
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles is certainly already among the best visual achievements we’ve seen with the Nintendo Wii, but the storyline and gameplay have been kept largely under wraps. We know a few key things: it’s pretty, there’s flying (lots of flying), and telekinetic powers are important.
