I'm still on the road and wasn't able to finish the retrospective I wanted to write for a few days now. It's going to be online soon, but right now I'm not able to publish the article. Meh.
Yet, I found out that I have some spare time on my business trip while I'm waiting for some people, so I fiddled around in Photoshop and created a new Xenoblade wallpaper based on a little piece of official art that had been posted recently.
Today, I've got some neat high resolution Xenoblade Chronicles 2 wallpapers for you. I also thought this time of the year would be great to talk about this and that.
I don't know how many of you still know old RPG-O-Mania, but if you knew it back in 2007, you notice that there are still some Suikoden sections missing. I am planning to include them within the next updates, because Suikoden is always great for an update!
Other than that, I'm going to tweak the design and layout of rpg-o-mania a bit, since there are some parts that could be more user friendly. So you might notice some design and content changes as well soon.
There was a mistake in the Final Fantasy overview - Twitter user @cursedblessing informed me that the servers of Final Fantasy XI are still up and running, only the PlayStation servers were shut down in 2016.
This is quite impressive for such an old game!
Ah and by the way, I am really happy for feedback and corrections if you find something that is not right. So please feel free to contact me via Twitter or mail, or heck even ICQ. I'll be grateful for every word of praise or criticism!
I finally did it - the Final Fantasy retrospective is online.
There's an interesting history behind this piece of coverage. Back in old RPG-O-Mania, there was a special section called "Final Fantasy overview" where there was a short description of every Final Fantasy game. I always liked this set of information, but when rewriting it I realized that it's quite the same as the retrospective.
Hence, I "downgraded" the overview and put it into the retrospective format.
Right now I enjoy some time with my family at my parents' house, so I can't really provide a big update this time. Nonetheless, I uploaded some nice Xenoblade Chronicles X images to the corresponding gallery.
You see, I never got into Xenosaga, but last year I tried out Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and now I'm playing the predecessor, although they are not so much connected, story-wise. I already have Xenoblade Chronicles 3D available to my disposal, which I think I'm going to play after I finished X.
It's a really great series and I'm impressed by Monolith Soft. They did a great job!
