    The Official "How many parts?" Thread

    I've said this before, but God of War Ragnarok is in a similar boat as Remake part 2 in that one might expect a quicker development cycle due to the reuse of assets (example assets being character/enemy models, animations, battle mechanics, menus, and "back-end" techniques like data streaming...

    I know What's Beneath the Snow Fields, a ridiculously long FF7 fic from 1999

    Dude Cloud and Tifa are dripping in those winter styles. Fantastic work.

    The Official "How many parts?" Thread

    Some food for thought in regards to part speculation: God Of War Ragnarok ends the Norse saga in just two games. Here's what creative director Cory Barlog has to say on it: Another tidbit: the FFXIII saga started development in 2004 and concluded in 2014. This is especially notable since...

    Yoshinori Kitase on the highs and lows of creating the timeless PlayStation classic

    Final Fantasy VII: Yoshinori Kitase on the highs and lows of creating the timeless PlayStation classic New interview to coincide with FFVII's PS Now release. A tidbit, Vincent is Kitase's favorite character. No wonder Vincent got his own game. This is a nice story. It's wild how distant...

    Zack has 2 different hairstyles

    The interview talks as if Zack changed his style as soon as he became first, but technically speaking he changed it after inheriting the Buster Sword. Perhaps they were trying to avoid spoilers about Angeal.

    ACC to be released on Ultra HD Blu-ray this June

    The remake series will never make FFVII look as "next-gen" as Advent Children. Almost otherworldly the visual jump between 1997 and 2005. Plus the style. My god the style. Cloud, Tifa, and Kadaj's designs are particularly memorable to me, but the whole cast receives a great modern twist. Nomura...

    The Matrix FOUR… with Keanu Reeves & Carrie-Anne Moss

    I need this movie in my life so bad. I have great memories staying up late and watching the whole Matrix trilogy. No joke, in my most recent watch-through, the first movie was my least favorite.

    Translated Interviews from the Kaitai Shinsho (AKA Dismantled) Complete Guide

    Even with the mistranslation, I'm not getting the bizarre experience that @Obsidian Fire is describing. Reading those excerpts and poking around Maiden myself, I feel Matsuyama had a good grasp on the story and characters in their OG incarnations.

    What games are you currently playing?

    About to go challenge the last boss of No More Heroes III. Looking forward to it, Prince FU is definitely the best villain yet in the series.

    Translated Interviews from the Kaitai Shinsho (AKA Dismantled) Complete Guide

    Holy smokes, had to stop my daily chores to sit down and read this. What a gold mine. So many interesting insights. Since the interview was conducted before the release of FFVII International, we can see how things like the Underwater materia was cut and then repurposed. It's also interesting...

    I know What's Beneath the Snow Fields, a ridiculously long FF7 fic from 1999

    It's beautiful. I'm in awe at the creativity from both you and the fandom around Snow Fields. What a wonderfully authentic time capsule. Looking forward to Part 2.

    Evangelion

    Exactly one month ago I started Evangelion on a whim. I've now seen everything. I listen to the soundtrack at work. I've ordered the Platinum Collection. I never imagined I'd be in the trenches of Evangelion discussion one month and one day ago. Here's my analysis on whether Neon Genesis...
