PC GAMES GIVEAWAY

I wanted to donate to some charities and got PC games in the process. I can’t download PC Games because my ram is small enough as it is. So I decided to do a giveaway for the games. 

These games are only obtainable through Origin and Steam (I was given the keys for them), so you must have either or.

The Origin Games include:
Dead Space
Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box
Crysis 2 Maximum Edition
Mirror’s Edge
Dead Space 3
Medal of Honor
Sims 3 Starter Pack
Battlefield 3

The Steam games include:
Dead Space
Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box
Crysis 2 Maximum Edition
Medal of Honor

Rules:
1. You do not have to follow me (I understand many blogs are different in their own way but I would appreciate it if at the very least you took a look at my blog and considered. However, if I’m in a foul mood, you following might actually raise your chances a bit and if you aren’t following me, I might just skip to the next number.) 
2. You can NOT remove this text.
3. You MUST reblog this at least ONCE
4. Fill out this form: Click Here (It takes like 3 seconds. Promise.)
5. Winners will be announced September 1st (One game per winner, so there will be 7 winners or more once I figure out if I can use both steam and origin keys).

How will I choose the winner:
The form you filled out above will go to a spreadsheet. I will use a random generator and choose my winners that way. Simple, organized, and fair.

Cutting off hair in ancient Asia (Japan, china, Korea & possibly some other Asian cultures) symbolizes being banished or rejected from their home. In the more modern age that is now, cutting long hair into a short cut means to forget the past, leaving the old and starting anew.

Tetsuya Nomura on Final Fantasy XV

imadra-blue:

Selected tidbits from the article:

  • Regarding the name change from Versus XIII and the “feel” of being a numbered title: within the company, about one to two years after Versus XIII was announced, discussions were had on its scale and concept. It was considered that the game may be appropriate for Final Fantasy XV. They talked about it for several years. Two years ago (sometime in 2011), developers began to hear about next-generation consoles, and the team decided to make Final Fantasy Versus XIII into FFXV. One year ago, they decided that all development will shift to next-generation consoles, and the name was officially changed.
  • The game will be an action-based RPG. Not much turn-based style will feature in XV, but in the trailer, we can see a command system in the screen. Nomura tried to keep the “taste” of Final Fantasy; he’s not trying to make it all action. The game being a Final Fantasy entry is the most important thing. If Final Fantasy were to become an action game, Nomura feels that this game would come closest to showing what that would be like.
  • The interviewer notes that Noctis has many fans, but he is very mysterious. Nomura, meanwhile, describes Noct as “not cool” on the inside. Appearances can be deceiving. He’s rather cocky, and him not being cool is actually his main characteristic.
  • In Final Fantasy games, one’s party is necessary. How to use them is a core feature in Final Fantasy games, in regards to taking turns, how to act, etc. Noctis can battle by himself, but in the trailer, we can see him with other characters, as well. There will be lots of team cooperation, but it will be different from previous Final Fantasies. In the new gameplay trailer, we see three players/characters cooperating with each other to fight a giant (or a Behemoth). There will be drama in these interactions. It won’t be too systematic, but rather, it will have some story aspects to it as well. Nomura and his team are aware that battling with one’s party is necessary in the Final Fantasy series.
  • Unlike what the interviewer thought, Noctis doesn’t defy gravity/use gravity spells, but rather has the ability to teleport himself, including into the sky. In trying to make a game realistic, it becomes impossible to enjoy. Nomura has been trying to figure out a good balance between realism and the game’s main entertainment as a “fantasy.”
  • Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy XV are both coming to PS4andthe Xbox One, but DirectX 11 is the key: whichever hardware is compatible with DirectX 11, the team will keep that hardware in consideration.

Very, very interesting.
