Tetsuya Nomura Leaves Final Fantasy XV
Popular Video Game Artist / Character Designer at Square Enix leaves the Final Fantasy XV Project…
That’s right the Character Designer behind pretty much every super popular Final Fantasy game will no longer be working on Final Fantasy XV. Honestly I’m cool with this because it frees up his time to work on a game that I been itching for since 2005 (Kingdom Hearts III).
" If that wasn’t enough news, I’ve got a little something else to share with you. Now I know you guys want us at Square Enix to be more open with you and to keep you updated with all the goings on with our games so I’m going to talk to you a little more about Final Fantasy XV since I’m sure you guys are just as excited about it as I am (which is VERY excited).
The development of Final Fantasy XV is coming along really well and as a result Hajime Tabata (the director of the original Final Fantasy Type-0 and Type-0 HD) has taken over from Tetsuya Nomura as the director of Final Fantasy XV.
Now before you start to freak out, let me explain how this is a good thing. There’s no denying that Tetsuya Nomura has been instrumental to the development of Final Fantasy XV and he’s done an incredible job. His main role as director was working on the original concept for the story and universe and also creating the characters. Now that development of Final Fantasy XV has come so far, Nomura’s work is pretty much all in place so instead of having him keep an eye on the more day to day stuff, we thought it’d be a better idea to pass the reigns over to Hajime Tabata and let Nomura move onto other projects and make games that only he could do, you know, like Kingdom Hearts III.
So now we have Hajime Tabata and the rest of his team working as hard as they can on Final Fantasy XV and making sure it’s the best game it can possibly be and we have Tetsuya Nomura and the Kingdom Hearts III team working as hard as they can to make that the best game that can be. It also means that both games will come out much sooner this way. Instead of waiting until Final Fantasy XV comes out before starting on Kingdom Hearts III, Tetsuya Nomura can now properly begin work on Kingdom Hearts III right now and with Tabata in the director’s chair, Final Fantasy XV won’t suffer either.
Hajime Tabata and his team are a bunch of really talented people and Final Fantasy XV is in good hands for the rest of its development but even if you don’t want to believe me, you can find out for yourself on 20th March 2015 when you can play Final Fantasy XV for yourself along with Final Fantasy Type-0 HD.” - Square Enix Europe
Final Fantasy XV TGS 2014 Gameplay Trailer
Are you excited for a new #FinalFantasy game? I know we are…
" Previously known as FINAL FANTASY Versus XIII, the title’s development expanded and evolved to take full advantage of the capabilities of next generation platforms. While the main concept, world and story continue to be developed as originally envisioned, the First Production Development Team has further improved FINAL FANTASY XV’s action, gameplay elements and graphic quality to match the technology of the next generation hardware, as well as the expectations of players eagerly awaiting the game’s release.
The armed forces of Niflheim launch a devastating assault upon the Kingdom of Lucis, casting Crown Prince Noctis and his comrades out of their homes and into the fray. The engaging tale to follow draws audiences into an awe-inspiring world steeped in the rich storytelling traditions of SQUARE ENIX’s renowned First Production Development team.” - via Square Enix
There is no current Release Date for Final Fantasy XV but, it will be released on both the Xbox One and, the PlayStation 4.

Great apps for Maintaining A Functional, Happy PC
Applications that should be on all Windows Based PCs
It’s always surprising to me how many people buy PC but don’t understand how to use or maintain them. I get called all the time to fix things that aren’t even broken then they ask me how much and I feel like I am a thief if I take anything. I decided to make DIY / Tutorials for those who don’t want to get raped in the pockets by PC Repair technicians.

Blue Text = Media
Yellow = Workflow
Aqua = Multi-functional
1. Revo-Uninstaller– No matter what type of computer you own they all will have a built in way to uninstall applications. So why download this (or) any other one? Well to put it simply Revo-Uninstaller is more efficient than the stock uninstallers. Stock Uninstallers tend to leave behind hidden and unwanted data that in the long run may bog down your computer. Get The App Here!!! or Here
2. CCleaner – Ccleaner is basically a Registry Cleaner that will locate and fix errors in your computer’s registry. It also creates a back-up just in case something goes wrong so you can restore you PC back to the way it was before you ran it. It also has many other uses like cleaning your PC of junk files that are stored on your hard drive. It allows you to edit your start-up programs which are very useful for speeding up your PC’s boot time. CCleaner retails for $24.99 but you can make do with the free version. Get it Here or Here
3. Microsoft Security Essentials (Windows 7 and below) – Afraid of viruses? This is the best free software available and honestly I can afford to pay for Virus protection software but I still I find this to be top notch. If you have Windows 7, Vista, or XP download this and uninstall whatever adware of a virus protection you may have. Cool thing about MSE is that you don’t have to pay it any mind. Just install it and it will do its work and let you know if it finds anything. Get it Here
4. Infran View – I always get asked how to resize images… This is probably the best free option out there unless you want a full blown image editor, then I would Recommend GIMP or Adobe Photoshop. It is fast and free. Get it Here
5. Mozilla Firefox – Before the Google fan-boys come at me with pitchforks I have to give Firefox a slight edge nowadays in the browser wars because it uses less resources. Plus no matter how hard I try Google Chrome still insist to start on startup and continue running in the background when it has been closed. Honestly it not an issue for me but for someone with a lower end computer it may bog it down. Mozilla Firefox has always been a great browser though its momentum has been slowly dying over the years it is still one of the most functional feature rich browsers out there. If you have a decent built up computer on Windows 7 or 8 go with Chrome as your main Internet browser. Get it here
6. 7-Zip File Manger – If you are looking for a the best way to open up compressed folders you can’t go wrong to 7-Zip. Get it Here
7. Kodi (Formally XBMC) – While windows media center is pretty good it lags (pun intended) behind Kodi. Kodi will play pretty much any file format so there is really no need to convert files. It is fully customizable. The only issue is that for novice user the initial setup may be confusing. Get it Here
8. VLC Media Player – If you need to play anything but don’t want to have to open up a full blown media center, VLC is the way to go. Just like Kodi it will play pretty much everything without the need to convert files. Get it Here
9. Google Drive – Let’s face it, we are always looking for a replacement for Microsoft Office for the simple fact that we don’t want to pay for it… There are other options but when it comes down to it MS Office is still the industry standard. That is where Google Drive comes in, yes it is not a full replacement for an MS Office because it require an Internet Connection but it a great alternative. It allows you to create and edit all of Microsoft’s formats but with a nifty feature which enables out to invite friends to collaborate on projects. If can’t always be online I suggest downloading Open-Office which is probably the closest you can get to Microsoft Office without being Microsoft Office. Get it Here
10. Handbrake Media Transcoder – Have also of videos that you want to put on your mobile device but don’t have them in the right file format? Here is a free solution; Handbrake will allow you to convert these videos to a wide verity of file formats. Get it Here
