Some Gaming Memorabilia I have bought

This is a bit of a random one. I’ve previously talked about Artbooks that you need in your life so thought today I’d just talk about some game collectibles I own/have boguht for someone else because that kind of thing needs reviewing.

A shout out to Fangamer as they are the ones who stock a lot of cool things. Their customer service is ace and they send you cool treats in with your swag (last time someone sent me a cool picture of Strago from FFVI!! I was well chuffed!)

Read on if you actually care what I own.


Battle on the Big Bridge’s Score looks like a Big Bridge

Quickie since I missed Saturday’s update.

I found this:

Battle on the Big Bridge Score

I think it’s the score to Final Fantasy V’s Battle on the Big Bridge:

All I can tell is it says “Final Fantasy V” and… it kind of looks like a big bridge. I don’t have a source I’m afraid :(

Bay Bridge a.m.

That’s all. Here’s a picture of Gilgamesh:

Gilgamesh FFV Excalipoor this is far from the strongest of Swords

And another because why not:

Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Review

You know, I’ve only reviewed one film on my blog before. Nautrally because this is a game review blog. I make exceptions for game related films. Somehow I forgot that I’d seen Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Not just once but multiple times. So it’s long overdue but here’s a review.

Final Fantasy VII Advent Children Cover

Console: Errr well it’s a film based after the events of PS1 success story Final Fantasy VII
What does it have to do with FFVII? It’s set after the main events of the game and the main characters of the film are also the main characters of the game.
Worth watching? I like it. If you don’t know FFVII it’s … weird but still fun. If you do, why not.

Chess Evolved Review

hi guys, today is a review of a Facebook game called Chess Evolved. If you’ve got Facebook, are into chess CCG/TCG style games -give it a try. This isn’t Farmville or Mafia Wars, I promise, it’s decent quality. It’s an indie dev made by a guy called Jo, so continue to support Independent developers and give Chess Evolved a go.

Chess Evolved Title

Console Facebook (wow, Facebook is a “console” now)
How is this different to Chess? Although it’s played in a chess style, the pieces have different functions and they can upgrade and grow as you progress. It’s a digital trading-card/chess game.
Trading Card game? On PC? Essentially you have a “deck” and you choose which pieces you want to play. You essentially build your own chess style army.

Final Fantasy IV Review

Hi all! I’ve commented a few times before that I really like the music from final Fantasy IV. I also named most of my party from FFVI after FFVI characters. Yet I’ve never played this game. Until now. Ladies and Gentleman, Emma finally reviews Final Fantasy IV.

Final Fantasy IV PSP Cover

Console: PSP (Yes, that means I’ll be reviewing “Interlude” and “After Years” at a later date
Compared to others in the series: The first in the series where you have a large emotional connection to the characters. Definitely paving the way for FFVI to be the epic that it was.
Best Character: That. Is TOUGH. In terms of playability? I’ll stick with Cecil. In terms of character, I’ll choose Edward.
