I was playing Final Fantasy XII and listening to the gang concoct a method of getting the Marquis’ attention, when I noticed an outright abomination a little beauty in the background.
He sort of looks like a Moogle/Bangaa hybrid, but it’s anyones guess, because I couldn’t find the bugger afterwards.

It’s not one of those weird nam-Yensa Sandsea dudes, is it?

Nope, it looks like it’s the game bugging out by merging models. Most likely it’s a Bangaa mod covered with the exterior of a Moogle mod - hilarious :D

O.o

Anonymous asked, "Any comments on the FFX-2.5 Novella? I just found out about it today and I was painfully shocked at it's contents. From what I've seen it's strangely uncharacteristic and unrealistic for it to be canon..."

Sorry, no comments. I would respectfully ask people not to submit any comments/details about this yet, as I am trying to avoid spoilers.

For those just joining me: I love these games, but the trouble is, I practically have FFX (North American version) memorized, and I know FFX-2 very well. Therefore, I’m hoarding the very few surprises that are left to me, the very few things I can experience for the first time. Even if some the new material turns out to be annoying!

I’m afraid I’m going to be slooooow getting there, so please bear with me.

Anonymous asked, "Clearly Wakka moonlit as a stripper in Luca during the blitz season. ;)"

ANON, I WOULD LIKE TO PRESENT YOU WITH AN INTERNET.

(in reference to the ongoing discussion on how Wakka was able to afford a fancy sword like Brotherhood)

An early example of poignant body language in X can be seen here, when Tidus accepts the sword Brotherhood from Wakka. It’s a beautiful sword, albeit completely unrealistic, and even Tidus looks at it in awe as he holds it for the first time.

You have to wonder how Wakka, an unsuccessful blitzball coach from a remote island, could ever have afforded such a fine weapon. But of course, it was meant for his brother; Wakka would have spared no expense to help keep Chappu safe.

A really good question that I never thought about. Considering the paltry gifts Yuna’s given by the temple and village when she departs, as much as they could scrape together and obviously given with great love, one really wonders how Wakka could have afforded that sword. Perhaps a family heirloom?

i always thought it was something he’d bought with his Blitzball earnings, which admittedly would not have been too terribly much, but certainly enough over time for a purchase like this

it’s worth remembering that while the Besaid Aurochs probably have the worst reputation in Spira, they did still manage to get seeded in the Crystal Cup tournament- against the Luca Goers, no less. there’s got to be at least some recent wins on their record.

Actually, they may not have.

Wakka: “I joined the Aurochs at thirteen…ten years ago.Ten years…and we never won a game.”

Doggie-owner on Besaid: “I hope the Aurochs don’t lose their first match again. I’d like to see them at least tie a game one of these years. ”

And several people say that the Aurochs haven’t made it past the first round of a tournament in 23 years, although that’s separate from the regular season.

The thing is, I’m not sure Wakka had that much time to purchase a sword after Chappu decided to become a Crusader before Chappu left Besaid.

I think this may be a bit of game mechanics that doesn’t bear too close an examination. ;)

My favorite method of dealing with Confused!Auron.

Auron: You enjoyed that too much.
Lulu: And?

★JOB CLASS SERIES — GUNNER

“Never attack an ally.”




When I first started playing FF during the FFVIII - X years, I was oddly irked at fans who would knowingly refer to Tifa as a “monk” (what?) or Garnet as a white mage. Where were thy getting all this?But somewhere down the road I played FFV and fell deeply, madly in love, and chibi!FFIII further cemented my love of classic FF job classes.So now, when someone puts together a montage like this linking together disparate characters that don’t have much to do with one another at first glance, my response is, “Whoa, neat! I never noticed!” It’s like picking out mythological archetypes in widely disparate cultures/world myths, except not really, because it’s the same culture at different times. (So maybe it’s more like recognizing that Apuleius’ original Cupid and Psyche write-up and Beauty and the Beast are the same myth.)
