• Community Update: The Big Fifty!

    No, no-one is celebrating their fiftieth birthday. But this article is my fiftieth for the frontsite! It's such an honor to keep producing these articles for the benefit of you EoFFers. If only one person is able to keep up to date with the site amid the rigors of everyday life, then I'm doing my job! More often than not, that person is actually myself, so I guess I've answered my own question!

    In this edition, Doctor Who has launched back on our screens, some news about Kingdom Hearts, and two very important questions.

    The Rainbow Chocobos

    Final Fantasy III is one of the most overlooked games in the series. Huh, what is Final Fantasy III? I have no idea. But apparently this guy called Psychotic is doing a Let's Play of it! It's only a few episodes along, so there's plenty of time to catch up!
    Have you looked at any of the Final Fantasy streams yet? They're a great way to watch other people play video games. Not only can it be a fun pastime, it can be a good way to 'test drive' video games and see how they're like! With members such as Bolivar, DMKA and Ergroilnin, you always have an array of games to watch!
    Did you know that prominent member shion is quite the sketcher? Check our her artwork when you have the time, there's something about simplified, stripped back sketches that capture the raw essence of the subject...is what an art critic would say.
    In wider gaming news, Nintendo has announced yet another 3DS model, now with an added C-Stick. What will it be called? No one is quite sure, but with games that only it can play, the cynic in me is twitching. Stay tuned for more info!
    Everybody loves chocolate, but what's your favorite? Is it smooth milk, or maybe bitter dark? So much chocolate, so little time...
    For those interested in Kingdom Hearts, there's been some news regarding the 2.5 HD Remix, and in the future plans of the series in general. Important stuff!
    Get inside your TARDIS and go off into a journey to the stars, the new Doctor, and therefore the new season, is into the second episode. If you're into the programme, and who isn't these days, then go to the thread and discuss to your heart's content!
    What foods do you really want to try, but never really had the courage to? For me, it was prawns and squid, until I tried both and they were both rather nice!
    The spiritual successor to Crystal Chronicles, Final Fantasy Explorers is slowly gathering steam here on EoFF. With information trickling through, keep tabs here!
    The first of two very important questions today. Do you sleep with your feet tucked into the blanket or into outside? Do you do both? Do you sleep at all? This and more in the thread!
    Will we see anything new from Final Fantasy XV? As expected, morale is low, but with the Tokyo Gameshow still the come, there is still time to dream! What do you hope to see? Frankly, anything at all is a start.
    We've sort of taken ol' Sephiroth for granted really over the years, always making top billing in 'top ten villain' or 'top ten characters' lists. But when you sit back and think, what actually made Sephiroth so popular?
    Eyes on You is back as ever with a new installment! Ask Fynn everything about Poland, his writing (check it out by the way, it's awesome), or anything else under the sun!
    The very first Final Fantasy - has it aged like a fine wine, or more like stinky cheese? Is nostalgia alone carrying it, or does it have something special that even now, resonates with fans today? Discuss!
    The second important question! Are you a scruncher or a folder? I'll let you figure out what that means.

    Things of Importance

    Heavens, no birthdays this week. What a turn up for the books!

    Things of Humor

    Eyyy Macarana!

    Because everyone needed slightly cringe-worthy humor today!

    So Squall can have all sorts of enemies cast magic and other damaging attacks, yet simple punch and kicks can make him fall to his doom? Riiight.

    That's all folks for this edition! Stay tuned next week for more exciting EoFF related news!

      This thread reminded me that I am 18 years away from being 50 years old, and I find myself reaching for a bottle of booze.
