Yeah, like the first A bombs. Lucky bastiges.

I wonder how much more they spend per capita on games than the US does. That is probably the driving force behind it.

Yeah, but their parents' basements are really cramped.

I noticed that the guy riding the giant chicken was heavily armored but wearing sandals. If he doesn't chop his own toes off his feathered mount may.

Talented artists, but lacking in common sense.

Also, Playboy called about copyright infringement re: the rabbit-ear girls.

Typical of "Comic Book Guy" to notice a babe's "Rabbit Ears" above all else. :-/

There are also gaps below his breast plate and above his thighs -- No leather armor beneath the steel and instead of a chainskirt or thigh pads, he's got a metallic loincloth. I'm guessing that he just rolled out of bed and didn't have the chance to finish dressing before the Chocobo battle. smiling smiley

Hey MacMagus, Thanks for the link. Looks GREAT!
I didn't see that Chocobo pic (#4) in the screenshots area. Are those images you posted from the preview? I want to grab a hi-res and us it for wallpaper.

I snagged the images with a Google image search. Most of them are covered in the Japanese previews at the site I linked to, but you'd be happier with big still-images than grabs from the movies, right?

Ahh, ok. I was Googling "X-2" instead of "XII".
They all look really cool but the image of the chocobo rider caught my eye because it's got a nice little empty space on the right side for my desktop icons to go. Thanks again.

Eargasms, one of my first bands in the 70's.

And I thought I was sooo clever with that in 7th grade.

This doens't involve sex slaves. I don't see the big deal.

Even if it did, Sony would cut out the good stuff for the U.S. version.
