Review: Final Fantasy III

Final Fantasy III
First and foremost was continuing the Final Fantasy goal for the month, which saw me play Final Fantasy III on the Nintendo DS. Right from the outset, I noticed how difficult the game was. In the previous two games, I had been able to literally just hold down the A button during random battles, which would automatically select Attack and my characters could kill the enemies they faced with no problem.

2012: The Year of… Final Fantasy?

I realize that 2012 is quite a significant year.
