What If Disney Characters Fought In Final Fantasy?

Geek admission – I’ve never played Final Fantasy. But that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate the work of Geryes on DeviantArt! The artist has placed several Disney women in the many classes from the RPG. See if you agree with their placement.

Knit Converse Sneakers for Final Fantasy, Star Wars, Doctor Who, and Firefly!

The appropriately named Pretty Sneaky stitches lovely knit covers to Converse sneakers. And the best thing about Converse sneakers for my purposes is that they’re unisex. All nerdy Converse come in women’s sizes by definition!

Obligatory joke: There’s an ood in the shoe.

Review

Becky Reviews Console Classics: Final Fantasy III (Or VI, Apparently)

My first RPG ever was Final Fantasy VIII. A classmate handed me his copy at lunch one day. “Here, I think you’ll like this,” he said. And boy, did I ever. I played it through in one breathless gulp, and dove into FFVII right on its heels. I lost myself in those games. We’re talking weeks of strategizing and exploring. I made grinding guides, okay — color-coded sheets of graph paper compiling the amounts of mats necessary to upgrade all my weapons, then mapping a strategic tour of the world to gather what I needed in the most efficient way possible. Clearly, I was the coolest kid in school.

That was twelve years ago. I have not played another Final Fantasy title since. So when I popped in the Final Fantasy III cartridge last week, I was more than a little excited. After a few weeks of puzzles and platformers, I was eager for an immersive story to jump into. My imagination was primed and ready for capture.

But that’s not what happened at all.
