Final fantasy The..Thera..T..MUSIC!

The game I want to talk to you about is called Theatrhythm Final Fantasy. It is the ideal recreational game. This is hilarious really since usually Final fantasy games are quite elaborate.

Are you a big fan of the Final fantasy music?

Have you collected the soundtracks and know the songs by heart?

Then you’ll love this game. No really, you will. Because it will be a hell a lot easier for you to play than for  a person who’s never heard the music. It actually helps to know the beats and the melodies.

It revisits the musicals scores starting from the very first FF to the latest.

Unfortunately, only the main games, not the extra side tracks that were released. This bummed me out because I really loved the music in Chocobo Racing! And yes! You get to beat Sephiroths butt again! Horrah!

Anywho, you start by selecting 4 characters to add to your party. The heroes from all games are available. Extra characters are available to unlock through collecting crystal shards. By going through music scores playing epilepsy Guitar Hero by using your pen, you gain experience, level up, find treasures and get ridiculous cramps in your pinky.

My minions, or my party, contained the self-loathing loner, Squall, the radioactive ball buster (Sword HAH) Cloud, the playboy with two tails Zidane and Terra, whom I have no opinion off.

They are in an adorable chibi format which makes them extra adorable. I know it might not be a very manly statement, but it is the truth. There are 3 modes available in the main story game.

1)      Battle (plenty of ball mashing)

2)      Squiggly movie roundie thingie.

3)      Walking through terrain by moving your cursor more than actually pressing the balls

If you are bored with the mellow Normal mode, then there is the Dark note section that will satisfy your sadistic need.

I kid you not, if you do not have arteritis, then this will cause it. I must love the pain because that is where I spend most of my time.

There is some sort of limited googoo gaagaa community mode ala Nintendo. Where you can play co op (if you have friends L )or pick up Dark notes from your friends to share in your agony.

All kidding aside, this is a great game. It’s well made, the controls are easy and it is a great tribute to the music and heart collected through Final fantasy history.

The only thing I have a beef with is that you have to BUY new song content!!!

For shame Nintendo L

So here is for a great game!

Speaking of game.

I’ve done some great progress on my puzzle game!

Being creative

Hello everyone!
With the release of the Wii U, I find myself in a conundrum. Should I get it?

What are the pro’s and con’s? Will it suffer the same fate as my former Wii?

Like many others, I was overly excited about the Wii and got it as soon as it was released. It was fun for the first couple of days but now, to this day, it sits in a corner collecting dust and cat hair. The one system that I am actually continuously playing is the XBOX.

I actually feel like I am the only one in the world that enjoys  Kinect games. Isn’t that strange? I was very outspoken about how controller free gaming isn’t going to stay and yet here we are! It might be that the new concept  which is controller free gaming is more entertaining for me then the same of the old with a different graphics engine. “Look! Another shooter! it’s almost the same as this shooter, but this one comes with a hat!”  Both Wii and PS3 have their motion controllers but it is still not the same.

I downloaded Marvel Avengers Kinect last weekend. I cannot remember having this much fun. Fighting in real life and shouting out “FOR ASGARD” to initiate a special attack is what I call, awesome.

You might not agree with the controller free future that we are facing, but it is coming. I do not see anything else exiting in the horizon.

Except for skylanders Giants! YAY!

Anjo Graphic is so far doing well. (Unless you missed the news, I’ve created my own graphics company) I work closely with Planet dress up and we are creating some very amazing games for younger children. It’s funny. No matter what I plan with my life, I always get pulled back to game creation for children. Maybe this is some sort of sign and it is where I belong. I have great comrades and it’s actually fun to get up and work.

There is nothing more inspiring then to wake up eagerly to see what your creative team has been up to and to contribute to their amazing talents.

Till next time my friends.

Stay cool. Winter is coming!

P.s Here is Planet dress ups Thanksgiving Card that I made! Happy Thanksgiving guys!

Who am I?

I’ve recently been asked to join Triolith as their community manager. I will assist in building their brand and a personal love-ability that only Anna-attention can provide. Here be the original post :http://www.triolith.com/2012/04/05/community-manager-of-triolith-entertainment-reporting-for-duty/

Actually, that is a rhetorical question, I know exactly who I am!
I am Anna! More known under my online persona Anjo Banjo.

I am the Community Manager of Triolith Entertainment!

I will be using my stellar customer service sense to tend to the growing Triolith community. Especially the one that will emerge once Megatroid is launched. As your community manager, I will do whatever I can to make you all feel as a part of the Triolith family. I also will be spreading awareness about Megatroid, Triolith Entertainment and upcoming games. You want to arrange a gaming tournament? I’ll do my best to make that happen! You want a Megatroid T-shirt? I’ll be the go to gal! We will hopefully soon be launching a forum where all Triolith Entertainment and game enthusiast will be able to come together and discuss games, current game industry events, anything that tickles your fancy really. I will be a face you’ll be seeing for a long time, and my face smells great!

Let’s get this show on the road!

I am an avid gamer, playing anything and everything. I try to keep myself up to date with the more expanding gaming market but let’s face it, it’s hard. I like to believe that I am an artist of sorts. Oil, pixel, vector, sketch, you name it. I usually write about other people, so this is a strange experience for me. What would you like to know?

This is where telepathy would’ve come in handy!
First impressions are so important and I can’t even figure out a good title. As a rule I am very shy, but there are times, like today (oh lucky you!!) where I am feeling absolutely fabulous!

I guess the logical place to start is from the start. As a child, I had an older brother, a very nerdy older brother that finally gave up on ever having a baby brother. Someone had to fill those shoes! Unfortunately I have really small feet, but a big heart and batman glasses that my brother picked out, which got me teased for years. Hanging with my brother and doing what he did made more sense to me then make-up/fashion and boys. He sometimes let me actually touch his Amiga! It’s safe to assume that the best time growing up was when he was playing a game and let me watch, or even better, when we played games together.

His interests became my own. I started to play any game I could get my hands on and spent as much time as I could by a computer. I was content with the life I’ve chosen, not a popular one, but at least, a happy one.
I had friends too who played videogames/PC games, so finding someone to replace the void he left once my brother moved out was simple. The love of gaming ruled my life for a bit, then I discovered the nightlife. That was the least productive year I’ve ever had, ever. Once I stopped partying I took my first step into one of my passions, which was artistry. I pursued that path through education and practice. The market in Sweden, however, was very rough. Since I wasn’t really out partying anymore I decided it was a good opportunity to say hello to an old friend. I picked up an xbox and, with that, a subscription to Xbox-live.
A whole new world opened up. I got to play with people from all over the world! Sure, there was a lot of profanity but to have people I could actually communicate with was just amazing!

One day after getting fired from Burger King, don’t ask, I packed my bags, sold everything I owned and took the first plane to America.
When I landed the cultural difference was striking. I started to work on my artistic portfolio and continued getting to know the online community. The rest is pretty much history, isn’t it? I’ve had the opportunity to create a community of my own, I’ve met some of the best friends I could ever ask for. I’ve had the incredible joy of working for GamertagRadio for a long time, and of course, many others as well. I’ve been to various gaming conventions that I never in my life thought I’d be able to attend! I’ve also worked as a game designer for several girl sites. The biggest moment in my life was being able to see my work on CNN and MSNBC. That was a close second was releasing a PC game I helped design.

So, who am I? I am the girl from Sweden, who vanished and came back richer with experience. That is the experience I will hope to share with Triolith Entertainment.

It’s a pleasure to meet all of you!

If you have any questions you’d like to know, just ask me by commenting on this blog post and I’ll give you an answer as soon as I’ve rid the world of Halo! Actually, I am feeling very generous, so I’ll answer it even without destroying Halo! Congrats, you just cost the world the cure for Halo!

Love

– Anna
