Mission complete, inside the Crisis Core launch party

By Spencer . March 26, 2008 . 9:05am

I didn’t make it to the Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII launch party, but Siliconera reader, RagolSlayer did. For everyone who wasn’t at the Metreon, RagolSlayer did us a huge favor by taking pictures of the party and writing up a report that I can’t take any credit for. He notes:   RagolSlayer here. Went […]

Arriving in Asia, English Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII

By Spencer . February 26, 2008 . 11:28am

While we’re on the subject of languages, did you know the “Asian” versions of PSP/PlayStation 2/PS3 RPGs are typically in Japanese? This fact is probably commonly known within the savvy Siliconera audience, but it’s still a nuisance if you live in an English speaking region like Hong Kong of Singapore.

That’s the consensus from the supporting cast of Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII. Cloud looks up to him and Aeris adores him. Square-Enix even makes him loveable to the audience. Unlike the mentally mixed up Cloud, Zack has a clear dream to become Soldier First Class. In the early part of the game Zack has […]

By Spencer . September 13, 2007 . 8:05am

Square-Enix is not taking any chances with Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII. Billboard sized ads are outside when you wait for a train and when you get on the train a silent LCD screen rotates through a Crisis Core ad.
