  1. Finally beat Fantasy IV

    Good news everyone!

    I finally beat Final Fantasy IV. After about 20+ hours of frustration, I finally caved in and looked up guides on the augment mechanics and that helped immensely. Despite my frustrations, I think I've come to appreciate the remake's new mechanics that doesn't let you power level to beat bosses. Here are my take aways from Final Fantasy IV (remake):

  2. Final Fantasy IV

    Today's session was the roughest by far during my journey through all the Final Fantasy titles. This next bit might contain some spoilers.

    Okay, my troubles began when fighting Golbez in Underworld. At first, I had no idea why some attacks were healing him while others were damage him.

  4. Just a small update

    Decided to tackle all the Final Fantasy main series and maybe some of the spin-offs. I've beaten FF1, FF2, FF7, FF7: Crisis Core, and am now working my way through FF3.

    FF1 - Once I got used to the game, it wasn't so bad. I think my final team ended up being Knight, Ninja, Black ...

  5. Digital Immortality

    If you could transfer your mind digitally into a different host like a bio-engineered body or a synthetic android, would you do it? If you watched Netflix's "Altered Carbon", the concept's very similar if not the same.

    Let's assume the procedure is as common as buying a vehicle with price ranging from budget prices (synthetic) to lab grown clones. Pricing would be $15,000-$100,000+, for the new hosts and the cost of transferring digitally.
