Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary Celebration

That's right; starting today Square Enix is celebrating 25 years of Final Fantasy. In its 25 years Final Fantasy has been launched over 40 titles on dozens of systems and has become a household name in the gamer community. All gamers, even if they have not played a Final Fantasy game, they know about them and the iconic music that is played when you are victorious in a battle. To start the celebration Square Enix has launched the Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary site as a main site to announce the events that will be happening through the rest of the year.

A few of these activities include an event happening at PAX Prime with the first "Experience Final Fantasy". This event will be happening Friday, August 31 from 1:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the ACT Theatre in Seattle (700 Union Street).  This is open to the general public where there will be several games setup for play. There will also be prizes such as fan favorite plushies, special 25th Anniversary poster and Xbox 360 or PS3 consoles that are themed after Final Fantasy XIII-2.  Hopefully this will be one of many events they have, which will hopefully be announced on the above website. Want more on the celebration? I think you know what to do!


Legend of Zelda Wallpaper


Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary wallpaperI'm glad to see that Skyward Sword has a solid release date now. I haven't been this excited for a Zelda title in awhile.  Possibly not since Ocarina of Time.  I've enjoyed the Zelda titles that have come out since then, but there is something about this new one that has me thinking about Ocarina of Time and A Link to the Past, which is my favorite Zelda title.  To show my appreciation and love for the series I'm posting up for you, our readers, another wallpaper.  This one as you can guess by the title is in homage to the Legend of Zelda series.  Like the Mario wallpaper I was thinking about the items that just have that distinctive classic Zelda feel.  I've made most of the items harken to my favorite A Link to the Past, though you will find a couple of items that are found in other games.  It seems stranged to think that it's the 25th Anniversary of the series, considering I have been playing since the first installment.  Man it makes me feel old.  In any case I hope that everyone enjoys this wallpaper.  It took me a lot longer than the Mario one, but I think the effort was well worth it for the final result.  If you are liking these, let me know in the comments section and give me suggestions for a future wallpaper.   I might just draw up a suggestion I like!

Zelda 25th Anniversary News

Many of you may know the fact that Nintendo is playing up the 25th anniversary of the Legend of Zelda. Well Nintendo has recently announced new online activities for this event.  You can go to the official 25th anniversary website at  This site has a number of activities including an interactive history of The Legend of Zelda, the video of the orchestra from their E3 press conference playing music from series, and a contest to make a Zelda Flipnote using a DSi or DSi XL.  These along with paper flipnotes that are submitted by September 9th will be reviewed by the people that have worked on the Zelda series, including Shigeru Miyamoto, Takashi Tezuka, Eiji Aonuma and Yoshiaki Koizumi. After they have reviewed the notes, fans will be able to enjoy the posted flip notes on the anniversary site, on the Wii via the Nintendo Channel, and on DSi and DSi XL system with Flipnote Hatena.

But they don't stop there.  The Legend of Zelda Anniversary concert has 2 stops so far (Los Angeles and London).  Keeping my fingers crossed they make a stop at or near Denver, but with our history I am not holding my breath.  Then to top the cake, starting in September, owners of a DSi, DSi XL, or 3DS will be able to download The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords for free.  This is on top of the new Wii Zelda game coming out this year.  This all proves it is a great time to be a Zelda fan.
