    Rat: "This is the King's Castle. All daughters in this country are called to a dance party that is held tonight."
    Ven: "Cinderalla is also going...
    Rat: Yes, however I need to prepare a dress for her.
    Ven: I remember a fellow who called Cinderella a while ago.
    Rat: Ah, Dancing in the castle has always been a dream of Cinderella. She lives in a nother world where all she does is clean and wash.
    Ven: I understand...I know that feeling. Well then we'll make Cinderella realize that dream.
    Rats: Yes we will.
    Ven: We'll make the dress. Will you create the dress while I look for the materials?
    Rat: It's a good idea. Well then may you look for 2 pieces of clothing in the room below. Also a white ribbon, pink string will be good as well. I'll be making the dress here.Also can you watch of for Lucifer?
    Ven: Lucifer?
    Rat: He's a brutal cat. He steals and attacks.
    Ven: Understood.
    - After you find the pieces you are asked to return to the area in which you are attacked by the boss.
    -Terra's special attack is "Photon Charge" Ven's is "Star Burst"

    Terra: We are alsoafter that light. If we do so Master Xehanort will come.

    Terra: Wern't you surprise?
    Snow White: No
    Terra: (..I can feel pure light from her. Does this person have the mind of a pure light?)

    Dim Place

    Ven: It's a lie!
    Aqua: Don't be deceived. (In thought)Terra is, learning after all and he isn't like that.
    Malificent: The truth is cruel isn't it..

    The blog poster forgot the area.
    Aqua: I want to hear it again. I refuse to have Ven spoken such lies.

    Aqua: Leave!

    Really excited over 258/2, Dissidia, and Third Birthday. Loved Parasite Eve when I played it as a kid.
    And I'm really happy to hear about Kefka being in Dissidia. Screw Sephiroth, he's the best villain.

    i think xion is most likely, the name shion isn't according to the (unwritten) rules of the organisation.(all members have an X in their name)

    Looks like 1UP doesn't like 358/2 Days:

    They say the camera is horrid, the engine doesn't allow more than 3 enemies on-screen at once (their stats are beefed up). Of course, they were talking about the four-player mode, so single-player may have more enemies at once. They also spent an entire paragraph hating the game title. They also said the controls are bad (or rather going from analog stick to a D-pad is). The only things nice they have to say is that the game is pretty with detailed environments and that the frame rate is great.

    I'd like someone to report how the music is coming along.

    1UP has nothing but praise for BBS:

    I haven't trusted 1up since they said Chrono Trigger DS was retaining it's old english script. They lied as many other media sources (like siliconera) detailed the dramatically new translation.

    And apparently, Ven's full name is Ventus.

    Heh... no matter what these graphic whores say, I will play the hell out of 358 no matter how it will turn out, since it looks great and SE is going all out on this one (which is quite a thing to do on DS Games these days), that one screen:


    totally proved that for me, h.a.n.d is doing a amazing job no matter how they rant about the name and whatsnot just because they wanted both for the PSP, DS forever xD !

    Definitely Terra for FF6. I'd love to see her in a proper 3D model (no the crappy ones for the PSX remake). It might even give us a hint at what she'd look like for the possible (upcoming perhaps?) DS remake of FF6. [​IMG]
