  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    I’ll be here covering the stream again today, once again. I hope some of you can join me and hang out.

    • Samsara09

      Anything remarkable today,Sir Zero?You did show the schedule yesterday…but I kinda forgot it.

      • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        According to the schedule, only really a few things. Got some repeats in here too.

        Despite that, I’ll still be here covering the stream all day, with a few afk’s here and there.

        • Samsara09

          Your dedication to the job is admirable!Take a day off this weekend,lol.

          • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

            I cleared up my schedule for all e3 this week. =P

            We have the open forum #100 tomorrow, going to do a few hours of major celebration when it first goes live. I’ll be announcing more details about it later today. ^_^

            • Samsara09

              yeah.

    • zakou

      Where? What stram XD

      • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        It’s the youtube video link above. I’ve been covering the stream each day that it’s been up.

        • zakou

          Oh fail, in my head it sounded like something that you are going to stream on Twitch or something.

          Imo this could be a good idea, you and Sal maybe streaming news and talk about your opinions on E3 and such events and stream it and let the fans join in on the chat section or even join you on skype or something.

          Just a little idea for you :)

          • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

            Oh, I’ve considered it, just way too difficult for us to work out. With schedules, and other news going on that has to be posted etc.

            Maybe, just maybe one day, we could do a video before or after. Or maybe a podcast thing. It’s something I’ve thought of.

            I’m mostly way too busy these days, but, If I could work out the time, it would be fun.

            • zakou

              Yupp I can imagine how busy you must be not only with the dedication to this site but also your own personal life.

              Good to see you have been considering this, as imo this could be a new addition to this site weekly or monthly “Fan appriciation” thing.

              Like let all the fans gather and ask you and sal things on a chat or stream and as mentioned join in for a call or something, this would let the community grow closer sort of.

              Another fun idea would be something like “Gaming week with Zero” where you stream a game that you are playing and let fans on the stream join in for the fun.

              Still we don’t know if this would work out or not but it’s worth trying sometime :)

              • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

                The stream a game sounds cool, but I’m not sure how well my internet would do. i’ve thought about it before, most certainly.

                As for getting a bunch of people on stream and such, it would be a bit tougher, maybe if they asked questions before and we answered them on a podcast like thing.

                I’ve thought about this type of stuff before, I would love to do something like that, but, it just isn’t as easy to do.

                We only have a few people behind the scenes. Tough to work out things as easily.

  • Quetzalcoatl9999

    I need the schedule

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Coming up first is another FFXIV live letter from the producer. Then we have some music repeats and such.

    I’m interested to see – Fated Battle!: Naoki Yoshida VS. Ichiro Hazama! coming up later today. Should be fun.

    • http://www.di.fm Spicy Chicken

      Fortunately I start work late tomorrow, so I can actually watch that battle live! Should be fun, until then I’ll be doing everything in reverse today so I have time for that later. Thanks for the heads up Zero, with all those repeats on the schedule I almost missed that! O_O

      • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        You’re welcome. Yeah, it sounds like fun.

  • Quetzalcoatl9999

    I hope they announce a new game today but seems unlikely.

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      I don’t imagine they will. If they do, it will likely be in a press event rather than on the stream.

  • Six

    Doesn’t seem like much’ll be going on today. Square Enix has been talking with Microsoft about getting XIV on the bone, so maybe more details on that or something.

    I dunno. xP

  • Dystopiq

    There’s still hope for a DQ VII 3DS announcement! Right guys!?

  • Ping92

    this is like a day for repeats?

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Looks like this letter will mostly be in Japanese.

    I will post what I can translation wise.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    They showed some pictures of the new class Ninja and Rogue again, and they showed some pictures of the Ninja’s weapons.

    • Pyrofrost

      I will most likely be retiring my Monk @ 2.4 lol

      • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        Oh? xD

        • Pyrofrost

          Yeah, so hyped about Thief, Ninja, and the inevitable Samurai.

          Thief would only come in the future as a Job though, not a class, because like BLM, it’s taboo in Eorzea’s lore.

          • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

            I’d love Samurai to be announced.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Yoshi is now going to demo some of the new Ramuh battle.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    They are going to talk a bit about the new PVP modes next.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q1: Will it be easy to participate in Frontline even if you’ve never played PvP content before?

    A1: Frontline is content that a lot of people enjoy at once and it was made with the idea of being extremely easy to get into PvP content. You’ll be able to enjoy this easily.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q2: What’s the maximum number of participants for Frontline?

    A2: As we are still performing final stress checks there is a possibility that there might be some changes, but currently it will be 24 vs. 24 vs. 24 for a total of 72 players.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q3: Approximately how long will a single battle take?

    A3: The battle will be decided within 30 minutes.

    Q4: Are there any role restrictions for Frontline?

    A4: There are no role restrictions, and it will be possible to change your class or job at outposts.

    Q5: What kind of rewards can we obtain in Frontline?

    A5: Essentially the rewards are the same as the Wolves’ Den, but you’ll also be able to obtain war mounts and Allagan tomestones of soldiery.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Talking about Chocobo Raising and Housing.

  • Budgiecat
    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      Gonna leave me all alone? ; ;

      • Budgiecat
        • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

          Googled this out if interest. If anyone cares: http://www.kltowerjump.com/

          • Pyrofrost

            Is it possible to have what Zero is doing here for every Live Letter (as they don’t happen often).

            It would really be awesome, and would possibly create extra traffic. Plus, it’s a lot easier to deal with a thread like this, than the official forums.

            • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

              Sounds cool. I can try and do this with the other letters. It depends on how busy I’m going to be because they are usually so early in the morning for the west.

              • Pyrofrost

                Hell, I would even help if necessary if Sal is willing to create an article with the LL feed. :3

                Cause these things only happen a handful of times per year.

                • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

                  Well, I can’t promise anything right now. I will try my best though. I can promise that.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q6: Will the chocobo raising system be completely separate from companions?

    A6: No. The chocobo raising system we will be implementing is content related to your companion chocobo.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q7: Will the size of your private chamber, or the number of private chambers, change based on the size of your free company house?

    A7: There will be no differences based on the size of your free company house.

    Q8: How many items will you be able to place in your private chamber?

    A8: We are still performing final adjustments at the moment, so we cannot tell you right now, but the number of items won’t be tied or shared with free company houses.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q9: Will you be able to place all of the same type of furnishings of free company houses inside of your private chambers?

    A9: Yes, it will be possible. However, it won’t be possible to place outdoor furnishings within your chambers.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q10: How big are private chambers?

    A10: It will be slightly larger than one floor of a small sized house.

    Q11: Will we be able to craft inside of our private chambers?

    A11: Yes, it will be possible.

    Q12: Will the new portion of Crystal Tower be easy to participate in and about the same level of difficulty of the Labyrinth of the Ancients?

    A12: Yes, just like Labyrinth of the Ancients we’ve made it so you can all enjoy this content.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q13: Will there be a once a week loot restriction for the new Crystal Tower?

    A13: Yes, there will be. Just as it was when Labyrinth of the Ancients was released.

    Q14: What will the item level requirement be for the new Crystal Tower?

    A14: We are still in the midst of adjusting this so please hang on a bit.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q15: Will we be able to obtain accessories or weapons in the new Crystal Tower?

    A15: You’ll obtain armor from the new Crystal Tower.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q16: Do you have plans for the future to make Crystal Tower a regular open world area instead of an instanced dungeon?

    A16: We do not have plans for this at the moment.

    Q17: Will Gilgamesh make another appearance in the next Hildibrand quest?

    A17: No, he will not.

  • rainelee

    So no RotTR :(

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      Doesn’t look like they have much more to show of the new TR just yet.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q18: You mentioned previously that it would be difficult to add voice overs for the Hildibrand cutscenes as you are prioritizing the over-the-top humor and such, but would it be possible to add the voice overs after they’ve been released?

    A18: Naturally it would be nice to have voice overs, so we may look into this.

    • Pyrofrost

      I personally don’t care if we have VO for Hildibrand. I’d think the lack of VO actually helps the “over-the-topness.”

      Either way, he, his assistant, and his rival are my favorite NPCs, and I can’t wait for more of their wacky adventures ^^

      • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        I love the Hildibrand story and quests. I always have a blast playing them.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q19: Will Yugiri’s face be revealed in patch 2.3?

    A19: It’s still a bit too early for this…

    • Pyrofrost

      I completely agree!

      • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        Same. No need to reveal it just yet.

        • Pyrofrost

          Yeah, my mind is still hung up on the cliffhanger we were left with for 2.2’s main story lol

          • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

            Yeah. lol. Need more soon. xD

  • RegularOriginal

    Have no idea what they’re saying but I’m still here!

    You’re the man Zero.

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      Thanks. I’m getting help from SE forums with the translation. :D

      • RegularOriginal

        Awesome effort from all of you! =D

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q20: In the patch 2.2 main scenario, Yugiri and Thancred showed off a new fighting style… is this the new job?

    A20: Yes, it’s rogue and ninja.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q21: Will other famous FINAL FANTASY series characters such as Gilgamesh make an appearance in the future?

    A21: We plan on making some guest appearances that are related to the lore of FFXIV: ARR in the future, and once they are ready, I’ll be sure to talk about it!

    Q22: Do you have any plans of making an art book with all of the art you’ve shown off during the Letter from the Producer LIVE?

    A22: We are moving forward with plans for this! We plan on making it an artbook/lore collection, but we’ll announce further details later

    • Pyrofrost

      ERMAHGERD!!!!!!

      Did you see that book? #want

      • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        Yeah, so many pages. Looks really awesome for FF art fans like us. =P

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q23: Are there any plans to ease up on, or give us more freedom, when it comes to allocating our attribute points?

    A23: We’ve been discussing that it would be nice to make it a bit easier to do this.

    Q24: Will you be adding new grand company ranks and free company ranks?

    A24: We are planning this for the future and would like to release this alongside content that free company members can head towards as a goal.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q25: Where and how can we raise our chocobos?

    A25: By setting up a stable in your free company garden, you’ll be able to take care of and train your chocobo.

    Q26: Will anything when we raise our companions that already reached rank 10?

    A26: There will be a way to break the rank cap in the chocobo raising system. By doing this, you’ll be able to surpass rank 10. By increasing your companion’s rank, you’ll be able to increase the number of points for acquiring skills, so with this, you’ll be able to acquire all of the skills.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q27: Will new beast tribe quests be added in patch 2.3?

    A27: The only beast tribe remaining is the Ixali and this will be added in patch 2.35. The Ixali beast tribe quests will be a bit different from what you’ve seen up to this point and will have a focus on crafting. Completing all beast tribe quests will unlock a new quest.

    • Pyrofrost

      Hmmmm, their lack of referring to Gigas as a “beast tribe” actually lends itself to a theory of mine.

      • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        Oh? Do tell. I’m also intrigued by having to craft to complete the quests.

        • Pyrofrost

          That they are in-fact not beast-men, but the remnants of the Allagan race, after whatever calamity they dealt with in history happened.

          Kinda like how all the undead in Southern Thanalan (including the ones in the Hildebrand questline) are the remnants of Sil’dih and the Tonberrys are the remnants of Nym.

          • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

            Interesting. I had been thinking about that myself. Especially when you consider how they kinda guard the entrance to CT etc.

            • Pyrofrost

              Agreed, also, the Allagan’s are described as being exceptionally large. Thus far, the Gigas are the only exceptionally large humanoid race in the game.

              • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

                Once again, very true. Good point!

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q28: Will NPCs or monsters participate in Frontline?

    A28: In addition to players, monsters will also be present in Frontline, and they will affect the battle but only slightly.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    FFXIV Patch 2.3 is currently scheduled for July 8, 2014.

  • bloodiOS

    Waiting for the announcement of the Raitonin-uguu~ Collection for the PS4 xD

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      If they do announce it, I would guess TGS or that SE members event in Japan, etc.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q29: You mentioned that chocobo raising will be done by setting up a stable at your house, but will it not be possible to raise chocobos if you do not have a house?

    A29: This is an expansion to housing content so if you do not have a house you will not be able to participate in it. In the future we are planning to add certain features you can utilize from the chocobo porters in each of the three city-states.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Live letter is ending, I will keep posting more information as I get it.

    Next up is supposed to be a repeat of SE music. I will still be here updating, but, now is a good time to grab a snack or something, unless you want to watch it again.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q30: How many chocobos can you raise at the same time?

    A30: Since this is for companions, just one for now. We are planning to expand content in phases, and in the future when the Gold*ahem* and the Chocobo*ahem* are implemented, you’ll be able to raise more.

    (!!! Such a tease!)

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q31: Will it be possible to change your chocobo’s feather color to any of the dyes with chocobo raising?

    A31: We’ll be implementing a feature in patch 2.35 where your chocobos will be able to ‘re-grow’ their features and that’s when they’ll be able to change their feathers. It should be possible to change to all the different colors of dyes that are available.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q32: What is the cost and requirements for unlocking private chambers?

    A32: You must belong to a Free Company that has a house and you must be at least certain rank in your Grand Company. The cost is still being finalized, but the current plan is for it to be 300,000 gil.

    (Hmmmm Price is not that bad.)

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q33: Where will you enter you private chambers?

    A33: In patch 2.3, there will be a door added to the first floor that will lead to your private chambers.

    Q34: Is there a window in your private chamber?

    A34: Yes, there is.

  • RegularOriginal

    FFXIV is awesome, deserves more players, sure was a bit meh in the beginning but after you hit like 20, the game started to take off, it started to take off for me when I fought Ifrit, amazing.

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      It’s a fun game, but a great game when playing with friends.

      • RegularOriginal

        Unfortunately none of my friends play it, I had one but he quit, he went back to WoW (what?).

        Most of my friends barely play games, hence almost no mmorpg friends to play with. *sigh*

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q35: If you leave your Free Company, what happens to your private chamber?

    A35: In patch 2.3, if you don’t remove your private chamber, you won’t be able to leave your free company. In the future, we’ll be making a system where if you leave your free company, your private chambers will be removed.

    (Seems like you better think hard about what FC you are in before getting a private chamber, for the time being.)

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q36: For the new Crystal Tower, will you be able to form a pre-made alliance?

    A36: Sorry, but due to Frontline adjustments we are making large scale changes to the Duty Finder and we’ll be doing our best to implement this in patch 2.35.

    Q37: What’s the item level of the rewards for the Crystal Tower?

    A37: We’re currently planning on making it item level 100.

  • shogunknight

    Damn @zerorpg:disqus nicely done man

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      Hello! Thanks. /bow I appreciate it!

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q38: What’s the drop rate for the unidentified tomestone and the sands of time and oil of time?

    A38: We’re planning on making the drop rate approximately 30%. As we mentioned previously, we won’t be introducing all three at the start, but as we progress through the patches, we will be adding in more

  • Zackasaur

    Dat music.

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      Yeah, they showed this the other day, but it’s still pretty great for fans of SE music.

      • Zackasaur

        Oh, I remember it. It makes great background music while I’m doing my work at the university.

  • RegularOriginal

    Being a major Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy fan I got REALLY disappointed by the fact that there was no showcasing of FFXV and/or KH3.

    Other than that, great E3, The Witcher 3, Bloodborne, MGS V, Uncharted 4.. the list goes on.

    • Pyrofrost

      They more or less didn’t want those two (their biggest two upcoming titles) to overshadow this year’s showings. With that in mind, it’s understandable.

      • RegularOriginal

        Yeah I think they especially did not want to over shadow their Kingdom Hearts 2.5 Remix, steal it’s thunder, I understand this but I was still as disappointed :( FFXIII was ok, not great but ok, I played them, I enjoyed them. But I really think XV will be at a whole nother level.

        • Pyrofrost

          Yeah, I’m hoping XV will live up to the hype too. The only game that has ever done so for me was Xenoblade xD

          • RegularOriginal

            Xenoblade was AMAZING, do you own a Wii U ? If you do how excited are you for Xenoblade X ? <.<

            I wish it would release for PS4 as well but ugghh.. won't.

            • Pyrofrost

              Yes I do, I bought a Wii-U ages ago because I knew “X” as it was called previously was coming :p

              Monolith is one of the very best devs in the industry imo.

              • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

                I need to get a U just for the new Xenoblade, I’m sorta hoping they put the original Wii version on the U as well. For people like me that didn’t get to play it.

                • Pyrofrost

                  They totally should, seriously.

                  I mean, Xenoblade is playable on the Wii-U, but you have to buy original Wii accessories and shit to even play it. It’s a real hassle.

                  • Daniel Masterson

                    all you have to have is a wii mote and a classic controller, not that much to buy.

                    • Pyrofrost

                      It’s still extra items that shouldn’t be necessary.

              • RegularOriginal

                Monolith are amazing indeed. I have a few favorite studios, Square Product Development Division 1, Naughty Dog, Monolith and a few others, but those are my favorite ones.
                Edit: How could I forget about From Software and Kojima Productions <.<

                I don't own a Wii-U so I'm going to have to get one for the new Xenoblade X.. I can't pass that game up.

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      I really expect some more XV and KH 3 news soon. It wasn’t at e3, but they might be showing and talking about them both soon. My guess is in the next few weeks or or next month. I’m expecting more sooner than later.

      • RegularOriginal

        Probably Gamescom or TGS, I would suspect TGS, but I want it sooner T_T

        • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

          Most likely, but my gut tells me sooner.

          • RegularOriginal

            Let’s put our trust in your guts then, hope it’s right. I mean they’ve been delaying these two titles for SO long it would be crazy to hold onto info for too long.

            • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

              Nomura-san seems to make big splashes and announcements without doing it at big public events.

              It just feels like more updates are coming very soon, imo.

      • Samsara09

        they can reveal info at any day they please.They never said it was restricted to events.Yes,I believe so.Right now,while the fans are hyped¹¹ for type 0…or just before it calms down completely,they will reveal more info on XV.
        Honestly,this is a good tactic.

      It’s weird for me, i never liked kingdom hearts THAT much, specially due to the disney characters ruining the mood like “goofy” and “donald”

      But i have gotten to love KH, specially the 365/2 days as it had almost no disney characters in it “only watched the cinema in KH 1.5 HD remix”

      Before that i played the PSP BBS KH game and fell in love, it was amazing, now i have only played KH1 at release date and now playing it again in the HD remaster but i never played KH2 :) so I CANT fucking wait for the 2.5 HD remix.

      And yes i got sad with no new KH3 or FF15 news either.

      But hey at least we got Tales of Hearts R mention for the Vita hahah ;D

      • RegularOriginal

        Haha I like your story, but it was the same for me, I was always a Final Fantasy fan so KH being Squaresoft(from the beginning) I was intrigued by it but I never played it until my friend forced me to play it, I just fell in love after that.

        Let me tell you this, KH2 is by far (imo) the best one. You’ll be playing something GREAT in the near future mate!

        Tales of Heart WOOHO. Tales of Vesperia and Tales of Symphonia <3, didn't like the new one that much. too linear for a Tales of…game

        • zakou

          Everyone is telling me that KH2 is the best, i’m so excited.

          Imagine i like KH and never played KH2 and now i will play it for the first time and in HD!!

          But still, they take their sweet time with it, Dec 2015 :O long wait,

          Then again i got like 7 unopened games waiting for me to play and finish them, and that’s just on the PS3, not to mention more Vita and PC games -_-

    Q39: Will there be any elements in the new Crystal Tower where the parties will need to split up and accomplish their own goals?

    A39: No, there will not be. The concept is that you’re all climbing the tower together as an alliance.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q40: Will famous Crystal Tower characters be making an appearance?

    A40: Can’t say for sure, but stay tuned…

    Q41: Will there be any special battles like the Gilgamesh battle in the upcoming Hildibrand story?

    A41: Yes, we’re planning to have a fun and exciting battle!

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q42: Will there be any new side story quests besides the Hildibrand story?

    A42: Yes, we plan on implementing a side story quest that revolves around the delivery moogles!

    Q43: Are you planning to add any stories related to Hildibrand’s childhood or quests where his mother will make an appearance?

    A43: We originally had a story that involved his mother, but there were too many characters that started popping up and we had to make adjustments. However, the story does exist, and if there’s enough demand for it, maybe we can make it happen! Let us know!

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q44: Will Hildibrand’s father return?

    A44: He just might…

    Q45: Can you make it so ability cooldowns are reset when you retry a dungeon after wiping?

    A45: It’s not something we can decide on the spot, but we’ll discuss it.

    • RegularOriginal

      I personally think that’s a bad idea, people would wipe on purpose after killing bosses to finish the dungeon faster.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q46: If you use a phial of Fantasia after you join in an eternal bond with another player and change your gender, will anything happen?

    A46: No, because the eternal bond is still between the two players and there are no restrictions in place.

    Q47: Right now, all end game content is for full parties of 8 players. Will there be any light party focused end game content in the future?

    A47: As we’re currently working on other tasks as we work on the Patch 2.x series of updates, it’s a bit difficult to shift our focus to light party content. However, once things begin to settle down, we’d like to look into introducing various new content.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Q48: Will you be adding any high level accessory recipes that are higher than item level 70?

    A48: Yes. Look for this with the release of patch 2.3!

    (Finally!)

    Q49: When is patch 2.3 going to be released?

    A49: We’re currently planning for Tuesday, July 8, 2014.

    • RegularOriginal

      That’s awesome, looking forward to it.

  • Slickyslacker

    Missed the interview with Yoko. Glad that I can catch it again.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Focus on Square-Enix Play Arts stuff should be coming up next. This is not a repeat.

  • http://www.di.fm Spicy Chicken

    That one’s good!

    EDIT: Ahem, meaning the one where Yuna’s about to battle Sephiroth. )_)

    The one starring an innocent cat about to be attacked was quite funny as well. :P

  • Ping92

    no surprise one of the winner is lightning indeed

  • http://www.di.fm Spicy Chicken

    That SD Superman is pretty awesome, and I’m not even that much of a Superman fan. (I did like Smallville though).

  • RegularOriginal

    I’m a little bit confused to why Batman or any superhero is on Square-Enix thingy ? I don’t mind I just don’t understand haha.

    • Zackasaur

      The Play Arts Kai lineup has long included DC characters and a few others, such as Solid Snake. They make great figures, so other companies license them through Square Enix.

      • RegularOriginal

        Ah, I had absolutely no idea. Thanks for filling me in on it man, much appreciated.

      • Martian Wong

        I don’t think the figures from SE are that great. Figma, Revotech and Riobots from Sentinel are way better.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Sorry all. I had to take my dog for a walk, back now.

    Looks like a repeat of Yoko is up next.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    This is coming up later today – (Have to refresh to see the pic.)

    • Pyrofrost

      So who ended up winning this?

      • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        It was pretty funny. I had fun watching it. Hazama won the practice round, but Yoshi won the serious round.

        The punishment was habanero peppers. Both of them decided to eat one and it was hilarious. They both could barely talk or sit down, trying to drink the milk on hand. xD

        • Pyrofrost

          Wow, talk about epic funny. Eating one of those would be like trying to put down a wasabi bomb. xD

  • Zackasaur

    Kingdom Hearts music > All other music

    • RegularOriginal

      KH Music is indeed great but I think a lot of Final Fantasy music is just as good :)

  • Slickyslacker

    That was moving.

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      Yeah, I watched it again today and it was just as great.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        The big moment today is the Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call Fated Battle!: Naoki Yoshida vs. Ichiro Hazama.

        • Samsara09

  • Ping92

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      Agreed.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    About time for more live at the e3 booth stuff.

  • RegularOriginal

    Just found a 43min video from the start of the game on Xenoblade, time to watch it and see if it’s worth buying a Wii U for!

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Looks like the Leviathan challenge is still going on.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Some commentary or something would be nice for this stuff.

    Oh well, the fated battle is coming up next!

    • http://www.di.fm Spicy Chicken

    • http://www.di.fm Spicy Chicken

    • Budgiecat

      Is Noctis, Ignis, Gladioulus, Prompio, Cor and Stella in this game?

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    I guess they are playing before Naoki Yoshida vs. Ichiro Hazama.

  • futuristic_imagination

    Man vs mode looks so interesting.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    Actually looks pretty fun to play this way.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

    • http://www.di.fm Spicy Chicken

      Yeah, I wish I could have heard everything they were saying (or trying to say) but you could SEE THE PAIN!!! :P

      • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

        Yeah. Yoshi tried it anyways and was acting all cool and then the heat hit him and he was like omg lol!

        • http://www.di.fm Spicy Chicken

          I wonder if that’s it?!? They got ‘burned’ out?

          *cue heavy sighs from all at Gematsu*

  • RegularOriginal

    That was amusing! But I’ve got to run now so cheers people, especially Zero for providing with translations. Big thanks.

  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero
