8-bit Metal Mondays: Square is starting to pimp its past hard core

A while a go, I made a promise to finish Final Fantasy XIII, even if it's god-awful 25-hour tutorial was creating one hell of a weight on me. Well, I had to break that promise. In the short time that i was beginning to enjoy the game, I was hit with one of the most irritating boss fights i had ever encountered. The prick used every single cheap tactic on me, to the point where I threw the controller down, gave up, and watched the ending on Youtube. It's a true shame, as the leveling system was pretty fun to mess around with, and the game is gorgeous. It just ended up having too many flaws that killed my enjoyment. Word is that there's gonna be a direct sequel. God I hope they fix the big issues. Let's start with NO GOD DAMN SUPER EXTENDED TUTORIAL!!

Square must be realizing that their current output is a bit on the sucky side, as they're beginning a steady release schedule of games on the Playstation Network that were once on the PS1. In other words, we're getting the best of Square's glory years for cheap. We've already seen the release of Final Fantasy VII-IX, but now we're getting the more fan-requested non-FF games popping up. Last week was the uber-long mech RPG Xenogears. This week is the super hard-to-find and collector's dream gem Vagrant Story. If other reports hold true, we'll also end up seeing Parasite Eve in March to go along with it's PSP sequel. All of these old school releases are great for the collector having trouble finding the hard copies, and it's a lot easier on the wallet too.

While we're at it, how about I go ahead and say BRING BACK EINHANDER!!!! You know, just a suggestion.

To close this out, how about some Final Fantsy bleepy metal?

  1. Man, Einhander was so good!

    How about Tobal No. 1 (or the never released in US sequel)?
