What happen?
Jan 03, 2014 05:21 PM PST, Posted by Brian

Well, in 2010 I moved to Canada from the US, that was kind of a big deal. Then I made a bunch of new friends and decided to try a life offline for a while. Then I bought a house and wrote a book and and got two cats. Then I got very sick. Then I got better.

It didn't leave a lot of time for an FF1 site. I took the site down because I didn't want to leave it sitting around unmoderated. Also the code was crashing my server constantly.

Sometime during all of that, I lost interest in video games. But sometime since, I've rediscovered how fun games can be, and how gaming can facilitate social interaction rather than be a hindrance to it. Games are how I've made most of my friends. Games are how I met my wife. Also I figure someone in the world could probably use some of the info I have on the site. Coming up on 30 years later, FF1 is still an awesome game.

I also felt kind of bad yanking the site offline without notice. There was a burgeoning community here (of sorts). Sorry about that.

Now that life has calmed down a bit, I jammed the site back online, as you can see. I don't have definite plans for updates to it. I'll keep an eye on it though. Happy 2014.

Happy New Year Brian!! I'm glad you're well and that you're back! *Final Fantasy fanfare*

There definitely was/is a community here. I've thought about some of the people on here from time to time over the last few years, always hoping this site would come back. I hope we can rebuild the community again. :)

Thank you for coming back! I also took a few years off, so didn't notice the gap, but this is my one-stop-shop for all things ff, and now that I'm playing it on my phone I'm glad it is available! I would have no idea where to go :)

REALLY - THANKS. I still remember emailing you in college because I got stuck behind bats in a dungeon. You were a voice of reason I needed (because I was being dumb), and I appreciate you not calling me out on that.

Welcome Back!

This is definitely my favorite Final Fantasy website. I enjoy the look, layout and wealth of information available here. I was worried when the site suddenly disappeared but it's great to have you back.

I've always used this site but never registered to join in the comments and so forth. I do love the tournaments and I'm in the middle of patching the game for my own enjoyment. I guess that is why I'm visiting the site again and maybe to tip the needle away from anti-black belt enthusiasts. If you are reading this and never played the original, put the Ipad down and break out the 8 bit the way it was meant to be played.

It really is too bad this community is so quiet since your restart. Can you send everybody an e-mail......ah well. ;)

Couldn't be happier about this site being back up. Listening to *Matoya's Cave* on repeat for the rest of the day. Thanks, Brian!

Welcome back! Albeit I'm a little late... Lol

Nov 22, 2014 06:13 PM PST

I'm so happy to see this back, growing up this was my favorite site. Used to love reading all about what groups had their advantages and disadvantages. Also voting who would win a battle, black belt or a dirty sock? HAHAHA

THANK YOU FOR COMING BACK! This site was a favourite on all the Net even without updates, I was always coming back for more art and because I'm always playing the game. THANK YOU!!

Wow. This place has been up for 2 years, and I never noticed. I feel like I shoulda been paying better attention. Hello.

Apr 26, 2015 08:28 PM PDT

Welcome back Um..., but there are very little community discussions anymore:(

Apr 27, 2015 06:11 AM PDT

we're working on it spacecowboy. slowly but surely, were working on it

Sep 04, 2015 01:17 AM PDT

I just discovered this recently, and while there are other sites with the information I was looking for, this has it all organized very neatly, and there's discussion about it, too! I've enjoyed reading the comments and arguments on here. I might even take a look at the forums. Thanks for this site!

Glad to have you back! Brilliant Webpage, don't ever abandon it please !

Dec 14, 2015 10:51 AM PST

Please keep up the great work! I am STILL visiting regularly and love the experience! Trying new parties based on recommendations here on the original format!

Hmmm... seems an odd website to post spam, Manoj.

Anyway glad this website is up. It is a cool looking site and a very convenient place for FF info.

Super glad that this site is still around after all these years. I remember using this walkthrough to beat this game for the first time in 2006.

Visited the site on and off through the years but this is the first time Loged In. Love the site even with your bias against black belts. Thanks for your hard work.

Welcome back, Dr. Unne (Brian)! I love your site.

Unfortunately, the site is having problems again. I can only see text and pictures. The frames are gone. The links still work, but I cannot play any music anymore.

A big thanks to dr Ogbefun i never believe that there still exist a real death spell caster after all this years of disappointment from the enormous spammers on the Internet who go about scamming people, until i was opportune to meet Dr Ogbefun a real spell caster, through a close friend called Jennifer who Dr ogbefun had helped before, when i contacted him with his email via i explain how my ex have been giving me problem in my marriage, she never allowed me a moment of peace, and i need to end it by killing her, and i don't want to make use of assassin because it will be risky so i needed to do it in a spiritual way that's why i decided to contact him, he assured me not to worry as i have contacted the right person at the right time, i co-operated with him and in less than a week my ex was dead, she slept and never woke up all thanks to Dr Ogbefun indeed he's really a humble man.

you can contact ogbefun for any death spell, such as to kill your superior in the office and take his or her place, death spell to kill your father and inherit his wealth ,death spell to kill anyone who have scammed you in the past ,spell for increase in salaries, spell for promotion at the office, spell to get your ex lover back, if things is not working well in your life then you need to contact him now via email or add him on whatsapp +2348102574680

I remember using this site back in 2001 or 2002 as I played through the NES version for the first time. I miss the days of quality standalone websites like this. Now everyone just has a Facebook page or YouTube channel.
