Speech

Hello. Welcome to Final Fantasy Classic. This web site is all about the original Final Fantasy game for the NES, and its endless stream of spinoffs and remakes.

I'm Dr. Unne. I'll be your sarcastic guide. Never compare me to Clippy, or I'll eat your face.

If you're unsure what you're doing here, pick a game in the menu on the left. Please note, the NES section is more complete than the others, and much of the information in the NES section is applicable to all the remakes also.

Those of you browsing the site at 4AM may have noticed some downtime. Not sure what happened on the server but I fixed it.

In other news, yeah the tournament is still coming. Flying back and forth between countries doesn't lend itself to working on websites. I'll try for this week.

Tournament soon

I'll probably start the tournament this weekend or sometime early next week. Unlike previous tournaments, this is going to be an NPC-only tournament. Previous tournaments were completely dominated by the Light Warriors, which was rather predictable. Taking out Fighter and Black Mage will make things a bit more balanced. Thank Nicole for the idea.

FF1 fan-made sequel?

alex95 has posted on our very own forums about a sequel to FF1 that he has been developing using RPG Builder. There's a video and a couple of screenshots. More in the forum. It looks true to the NES FF1, with some graphical and gameplay updates.

I think the project looks pretty interesting. The ending to FF1 always seemed cryptic and somewhat unsatisfying to me. What was the world like 2000 years in the past? Could be interesting to explore that. Here's hoping this project actually finished, unlike so many fan attempts at FF1 remakes and spin-offs in the past.

FF1 for iPhone / iPod Touch

Because the world just doesn't have enough FF1 ports yet, Square is apparently making a version of FF1 for the iPhone and iPod Touch. From the two screenshots so far, it looks pretty much identical to the PSP port, but with huge ugly touchable icons instead of a menu.

Honestly I'm all in favor of remakes, if it brings FF1 to a new generation of gamers. It's a good game and it's cool that it's survived 20 years.

I did a bit of work on the site today to make it easier to keep track of discussions that might be going on. There's a new Stats page which will show you the pages with the most comments and the threads with the most posts, as well as who the most prolific spammers posters on the site are. I also added a page to let you view All Comments on the site in one enormous list.

The forums also now show you who the most recent poster was. Hopefully this makes it a bit easier to see when new posts have popped up.

571 comments and 482 posts in 41 forum threads. Some of you have a lot of spare time on your hands.

Poll #4

There's a new poll up. I trust you'll find it agreeable.

In other news, I am newly Canadian. I hope to find some time to work on the site this week. I'm going to start a new Tournament soon, as soon as there are enough people registered to make it worthwhile. We're getting a couple new people every day, so within a few weeks probably.

New poll

Not sure how much anyone here cares, but I wrote a bit about some of the implementation details of this site. You can read about it on my blog.

Looking good

By my count, we're up to about 30 registered users after a little over a week and a half. That's not too shabby. Thanks everyone who is registered and participating around the site.

Please spread the word about the site too. The more the merrier.

I'm kind of flying to Canada this week, so I will be busy this week and completely incapacitated for a few days this weekend (Jan 9th). But then I will have a ton of free time in Canada, so work on the site will resume in earnest next week.
