    Final Fantasy VII for the PC has now been officially released on the PC. Unfortunately it's still having some problems. There have been various problems. Some people are having issues with the sound, others with the achievements. Mostly though it's another DRM problem. Many users haven't been getting their serial codes.

    The game itself isn't really updated. The graphics are a little stretched on most screens these days. Square-Enix may have missed a perfect opportunity to even just slightly tweak the classic for a whole new audience.

    Square-Enix has at least apologized about the DRM by releasing this statement.

    Over the past weekend a little early gem popped up for fans. Final Fantasy VII for the PC went up for sale for $12.70. There was no hype, no news of this releasing so early. It was just a sudden release so fans were ecstatic.

    Unfortunately for those people who went ahead and purchased it, it didn't work! Square Enix was testing their new site for the FF7 PC re-release. They uploaded an unfinished version of the PC game for testing. Being the internet, people found their testing before they were able to appropriately assess it. This is what customers bought though, the unfinished version. There was a DRM issue and a lot of frustration.

    If you were one of these eager fans, SE is offering a full refund as well as the download for the game when it officially arrives for free!

    Square Enix released a statement:

    "This weekend, our teams were testing the product website for the upcoming relaunch of Final Fantasy VII on PC. While the website was being tested in its live state, a small number of people were able to

    Hironobu Sakaguchi, creator of Final Fantasy, may finally see his newest game out in English speaking countries! His company Mistwalker developed The Last Story but XSEED picked it up for English translations. Earlier today they announced the release date and a preorder incentive via Twitter.

    The music seems amazing already from the trailers. Some fans may even recognize the composer. Nobuo Uematsu joins Sakaguchi in bringing back the very roots of Final Fantasy to a new series. If you have yet to see an English trailer, check it out!

    There have been quite a few times in the Final Fantasy series where you just stared at the screen and thought “what the heck did I just play”. Using magic doesn’t phase you. Strange creatures don’t phase you. These moments though? These make you just audibly say, “What the smurf?”


    5 Final Fantasy VIII’s Concert


    In VIII, Selphie and Irvine try to set up a date for Squall and Rinoa as well as celebrating his new command position. You get the lovely task of selecting instruments for the remaining cast to play on this date. It’s all a variation of Eyes on Me but each instrument has a bit of a different tune. You can have a lovely celtic sounding composition, or possibly a Jazz one. Or, like many players, you'll end up with a sound that causes weaker willed people’s ears to bleed.

    Oh and a very awkward laugh to be had about it? A porn magazine is involved. Being the nice guy he is, Irvine leaves Squall a magazine to help him get Riona and Squall “in the mood.” Yeah. YEAH.

    This pre-E3 week has caused a few interesting rumors to sprout up. XIII Versus re-dubbed to FFXV? Final Fantasy XII is getting a sequel of sorts? Let's dive right in!

    FFXIII Versus Changed to FFXV? A New Numbered FF?

    Rumor:
    A recent video has been making the rounds on the internet this week. It seems to be similar footage of Final Fantasy XIII Versus that we've seen in the past but marked with the Final Fantasy XV logo instead. At the end of the trailer, only Wii U and PS3 were revealed as the consoles. It was in the setting of a conference or classroom, claiming to be a pre-E3 conference.

    Evidence:


    Fact:
    Gaming website, Kotaku, reached out about this video to Sqaure-Enix themselves. What'd they say about it?

    Sorry kids! You'll just have to wait longer! If you'd like to chat about it with the rest of us cool cats here at Eyeson, Go here! Hopefully they'll show us some actual footage of Versus sometime soon.

    Now for some FF fandom news! The FF fans are amazing sometimes and we get evidence of that now and again. Most times it's physical things but sometimes, sometimes it's a little different.

    I don't know if you've tried it yet, like the other 30 million registered users of the game, but Minecraft is awesome! A Minecraft builder by the name of Felix Trapper has painstakingly recreated various scenes from Final Fantasy VI. If you get slapped with nostalgia, I don't blame you. I did too. Take a gander!

    Let's start our trip off with the snow capped city of Narshe! It's where you first start out and it's where we'll first start out!


    Too cold for you? Well lets go get sand on our boots over at the Figaro castle!


    I know you might have some random battle flash backs, they have rehab for that now, but please check out Fanatic's Tower as well.

    If you did or didn't know (probably did) Final Fantasy XIV has had, well, a rocky start. It came out in 2010, then they proceeded to fire all their devs that December and has since been trying to re-work itself into what they are calling Final Fantasy XIV Version 2.0. And it's about to beta itself up!

    So to get everyone back into playing, Square-Enix is giving those who have spent the time in game, with all the recent patches and what not, something nifty and special through the Legacy Campaign. What special things, you may ask. How about permanently discounted subscription of $9.99 per month and a Chocobo mount when 2.0 releases! How do I get these things? Another valid question. The Legacy Campaign introduces benefits to subscribers active for 90 days (cumulative) or more between Jan 6th up until the launch of Version 2.0.

    Final Fantasy V was nice enough to lend their beloved Gilgamesh to the XIII-2 Coliseum. Not only that but Final Fantasy VIII lent their PuPu as well!

    Square stated,
    One of the complaints that people have sent our way concerning FINAL FANTASY XIII-2 and its DLC is that the battles aren't hard enough, that it's just too easy to defeat these challenges. Let me emphasize to you, that we've heard you, LOUD & CLEAR. Introducing new Coliseum opponents that are guaranteed to give you a run for your money.
    Guess that means these fellas will be a challenge. But what are they going to be like to fight?

    [img]http://home.eyesonff.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=35890&d=1334296887[/img]

    Gilgamesh will drop in on your characters and declare he's going to fight in a new way. A better way. They rebuilt him. Made him faster, stronger, better? Showing off some heavy caliber guns, rocket launchers, and automated weaponry, this Gilgamesh will rock you with his new robotic tech.




    He's coming in at 10,000,000 HP! If you get him low enough his sword ...

    Final Fantasy XIII-2 is about to get some Commander Shepard "all up" in their game. Siliconera was the first to report last month about a possible DLC containing outfits from the hit Mass Effect series for our heroes Noel and Serah.

    The newest edition of Famitsu has hit stores in Japan. It has confirmed and given us a date for this Mass Effect DLC! According to Siliconera, the DLC will drop on March 27th. That's only a few days away. While Kotaku found the pictures in the magazine. If you are a fan of Bioware and Sqaure Enix this will be the DLC you'll want to pick up!

    This isn't surprising seeing as they already have the Assassin's Creed Revelations Outfit DLC. It seems like Square-Enix is offering the olive branch to multiple different developers. Hopefully this will be productive in other areas in the future!



    Famitsu also revealed DLC packs for Final Fantasy VI villains Ultros and Typhon! They will be coliseum type fights and once you defeat them, you can use the monster system to make them ...
