New CMS

Poltergeist is now running on a Content Management System – WordPress. I apologize for the mess this site has been in the last couple of days, but this is a time-consuming change I wanted to make to better this site overall, make it more dynamic for visitors, and make it easier for me to update. There are going to be a lot of updates once the Remaster releases.

New features include:

  1. A comment form on every page. I want to encourage visitors to comment on my articles if there is something they feel strongly about, disagree on, or want to discuss. I plan to interact with my visitors by responding to every comment. Feel free to post your own views on things! I’ll post my thoughts in return.
  2. A blog on the main page. This will record updates, but also special exploration articles and news. I plan to blog as I come across new Tidus information, and as I make my way through the game and discover neat things worth writing about.
  3. More convenient navigation. Menu pages still exist, and can be visited by clicking main links, but by hovering over them, you can go straight to the pages within each menu.

All content is back up for browsing, but a chunk of it still hasn’t been updated. Consider this site still in open-revamp mode. Many pages need rewritten, and I still have a list of pages I’d like to add. Needless to say, updates are coming! Keep checking back.

Remaster

RemasterFinal Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster is set to release on March 18th, 2014. With just three and a half weeks left before its release, I’m getting super pumped. The game will release on the Playstation 3 and the Playstation Vita. This is an excellent opportunity for those who haven’t experienced Final Fantasy X to finally play it. For those of us who have, it’s going to be worth playing again.

Square-Enix worked three years on this Remaster, and it looks amazing. In addition to full versions of both Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2, Final Fantasy X/X-2 Remaster will feature:

  1. Upgraded and improved visuals
  2. Improved music
  3. International Edition content that wasn’t included in the original North American release of the games
  4. Data transfer between PS3 and Vita, allowing you to pick up where you left off on your other system
  5. Trophies
  6. An Expert Sphere Grid
  7. Audio drama with concept art

I am not a huge fan of GameStop, and I wouldn’t promote them under normal circumstances, but they have a pretty sweet preorder incentive. If you preorder the game through them, you will get a free upgrade to the limited edition with a free art book. I’ve preordered a copy on both systems.

Who is going to be playing with me? I’m excited.
