Gaming Babble Blog : Final Fantasy VII Part 1

Or leaving Midgar and brooding Sephiroth

Quick Introduction to the new blog :-

It possibly isn’t hard to figure out what kind of blog this is going to be? I’ll be exploring some of my favourite games and writing about the experiences we go through. The blogs will come sporadically as I won’t bore you to death with levelling blogs and also I need to fit it in when I can. Of course some blogs won’t take as long as others being shorter games but the idea of the blog is that we can go more in depth talking about points in the game then you would be able to with one big review at the end.

Quick Introduction to Final Fantasy VII (or abbreviated to FFVII) :-

Well who doesn’t know FFVII?! It is by far the most popular game in the Final Fantasy series, it has spawned many other games and a whole film. It is where some of the most popular FF characters come from (Cloud, Yuffie, Sephiroth and Vincent just to name a few) and has one of the most ridiculously fun and emotional stories.

SAYING all that it isn’t actually my favourite FF game. It probably is my second but my first will be a controversial choice of the series next outing in FFVIII. We’ll talk about that in another blog for another time though.

FFVII see’s the struggle of Cloud and the group he’s attached himself too (AVALANCHE) as he tries to piece together a puzzle surrounding Jenovah, Shinra and Sephiroth. THE JRPG of our lifetime.

Strictly Come Dancing Week 5

Last week we said a classy goodbye to Tim and Natalie after a shocking results show that saw Mark and Karen join them in the bottom two.

Halloween has been pushed back to next week (oh no) so this week we have another good old fashioned week of dancing. Who has improved and who should go home?

Detachment (2011)

Rating :Β 

One big fact about me is I will sit down and watch just about ANYTHING that stars Adrien Brody in it. There are two actors I can say that about, the other being Karl Urban. I won’t even look to see what a film is about as long as it has one of two of them in it I’ll watch it.

Detachment was one of those films that I didn’t even bother to read about.

And you really don’t need to bother reading about it because from the moment it starts you get hooked in on such a interesting and bleak story.

Doctor Who : Kill The Moon -Spoilers-

There are many reasons why I haven’t reviewed anything after Caretaker and the big reason is this episode right here.

Kill the Moon is one of those episodes that could just be any kind of episode but it also has a big moral question that is very close to a lot of people’s lives.

So why didn’t I like Kill the Moon?

Strictly Come Dancing Week 4

You might have noticed last week that I did not enjoy Movie week whatsoever. I am very much happy we are back to no theme but I’m not sure I’m going to be able to stick with the series if it carries on like last week.

Sometimes I feel like I missed something in the show. Most dances don’t look or feel like they are actually proper dances anymore. So many feel like show dances with one or two elements of a proper dance in it. I don’t feel people who DO do a proper routine are given enough credit over people who faff about a lot and don’t do a full routine that looks anything like it should and I also don’t like the (and never have) one rule for one and one for the other thing we had going on this week.

I think I’m just overly grumpy.

Anyway on with the show as they say.
