Final Fantasy 7 and More

I’ve found my self pretty wrapped up in a lot of Final Fantasy recently.  I’ve been replaying Final Fantasy 7 and I’ve also been really wrapped up in Crisis Core, which is the prequel to 7.  You play the energetic Zack Fair, who will eventually pass along the iconic Buster Sword that Cloud is so well known for.

But my escapades into the Final Fantasy world doesn’t end there.  Oh no, I had to be a fanboy and purchase Dissidia: Final Fantasy.  Perhaps I’ll review in the upcoming days but I want more play time until I can really judge.  In brief explanation, the Cosmos and Chaos are at war and have recruited mostly all the main character and villains from all the Final Fantasy games up to FF X.  So on the good side you’ve got Terra, Cloud, Squall, Tidus and more against Garland, Exdeath, Sephiroth, and Kefka.  Call it the best FF game ever, or nothing more than a big fan service, but I have high hopes and I’ll be giving it my thoughts soon enough.

I’ve also found myself occupied by another game, thankfully not one of the FF series, but a game I think most people pass over when looking in the games section.  The game was Eat Lead: the Return of Matt Hazard.  Its parody third person shooter about a former video game superstar, Matt Hazard who fell from the top, and his fight to top again.  When I first saw the cover, I thought it was going to be another generic, gun metal grey shooter with nothing.  But then i was informed that Neal Patrick Harrison was off the character voices and I was sold.  In first impressions, it really uses the duck-and-cover style combat that Gears of War used, not to mention the game uses a lot of humor.  I’ll let everybody know how it goes Moneday
