Hey, everyone. As I continue to add news to the board sidebar, I will post all of our news links in a thread for discussion (like this one) so that I can clear out room for new articles on the sidebar while retaining the old articles us all to reference back to. I will likely do this once or twice per month depending upon how much news I find. Please feel free to private message me articles you find pertaining to Final Fantasy that you feel are newsworthy. Let me know if you folks like this news thing. I am trying this out as a starting point for discussions here. Feel free to use this thread to discuss any of the articles listed. Cheers!

I would love to see an HD remaster of VII and VIII come to PSN at some point, and hopefully this PC news is an indicator of that. You can bet the farm that I'd be getting a Platinum in VIII no matter what it takes.
'Eh no thanks. I might buy FF VIII but definitely not VII and I'd in no way work on the Platinum. Adding trophies to those games is rather pointless in my opinion.
