  1. It's been out for quite a while - it's just not complete. The finale and offline mode are what we're waiting for. If that's what you meant, then still no word on a release date 🙁
  2. Thank you for this - I hope you enjoy it if and when you get around to getting a copy So far people have only had kind things to say about it!
  3. Just to be clear, this isn't MY book (though I have written a book on FFIX, Melodies of Life, and you can check that out in my bio). THIS book is by a man who is quickly gaining a reputation as THE FFVII Mythology Guy, M. J. Gallagher. He has another book in the works about Greek Mythology in FFVII coming out sometime next year too. Feel you there. I've been working intensely on a writing project and haven't been able to read, watch or play anything outside of resource materials for the last couple of months. Neil Gaiman is an excellent recommendation.
  4. I'm struggling to find a source for it. There are unofficial sources that state that Riku and Mickey go to Merlin for their new weapons, but I can't find an interview or anything that would suggest that it was Yen Sid. The whole giving Keyblades away thing is notoriously glossed over in more than one area 😅
  5. Hey everyone, finally got a hold of the new Kingdom Hearts Character Files, and a few things in here have made me stop and check what I thought I knew. There will sometimes be discrepancies in terminology due to translation either of the book or the in-game scripts, but this made me feel pretty certain it was an error... Anyone got some evidence on who exactly 'gave' Riku and Mickey new Keyblades? I was very much under the impression that it was (Former Keyblade Master) Yen Sid. I've been recently replaying all the games and haven't gotten to III yet to check in-game myself. I will post anything else I find that seems amiss or requires clarity, but I hope anyone who has any similar questions feels free to submit them to this thread.
  6. Hey, FFVII fans and bookworms! Anyone heard of or read this? This was an amazing read, satisfying both my interest in learning about different folk lore and mythology but also my craving to understand the expansive story of the VII compilation. It was so accessible that even if I had known nothing about Norse lore I would probably have got on quite happily with it, and revisiting story from games like Dirge of Cerberus and Before Crisis was such a nostalgia trip. I'm quite surprised more people haven't heard of it, so I figured I'd see if anyone else here had gotten their hands on a copy and enjoyed it as much as I have.
  7. Update: Melodies of Life is now available in hardcover, and the prices have just dropped to a new fixed rate. Also, if you are signed up to Kindle Unlimited you can read it for free! Please do remember to leave a review if you like the book, as it will help get the book to appear in more recommendation lists and help others find it. Available worldwide via Amazon. (I don't have too many tabs... Maybe you have too many tabs!)
  8. This is a real trip reading back on theories from 2012 - and hard to see the truth contradict the brilliant Lea (who was totally right to suggest the silly nature of the situation). Personally, I have no beef with the Guardian being Terra and I liked the reveal, but from a storytelling and timeline standpoint it is a little.... questionable.
  9. Update: the Kindle edition is out now! Available through Amazon along side the paperback. Thank you for your support, and if you do order a copy please remember to leave a review!
  10. How the time flies, huh? It's crazy how long it's been since we both were starting out as mods together. Thanks so much for the support. Please share it with any friends who also love Final Fantasy IX and help me get the word out ?
  11. Ah, a kindred spirit. I really do hope you enjoy it - let me know what you think of it or leave a review too! ? The tiredness was not something I expected. I have written two full length novel manuscripts that were less demanding! Then again, I took on this project 100% due to two different artists dropping out and not having much money to invest; so perhaps it's really not all that surprising! Thank you for this! While the ideal situation (as advised within) is that the reader has played the game, there is a breakdown of the whole story in the introduction that also serve as a refresher - so from what you say this should be fine with people less familiar/intimate as well! Please do let me know how you find it when you do get around to it. I am very much open to feedback and criticism, as they will only help produce better future works.
  12. Thank you both! I feel... whelmed - simultaneously over and under - and it feels weird to not be working on it for the first time in months ? hopefully it is well received!
  13. Hey people, I hope this isn't against the rules, but I just wanted to drop a vanity post to say that my book, Melodies of Life: A Final Fantasy IX Retrospect and Analysis, is out now in paperback. The kindle edition is open to pre-orders, and will be released 31/01/2020. (links at the bottom of post) I thought I'd drop the contents breakdown here, so if you're interested in checking it out - you have an idea of what you might be in for: Contents: A Voice From the Past, Joining Yours and Mine...

  14. Okay, I'm a little confused. Is this VR experience going to be the whole KH1 game? When I first saw info on this I could have sworn it was just a glance at some of the worlds through VR.
