News that Square are remaking Final Fantasy X in HD might be the single best thing to happen in my life. I simply cannot wait. A few years ago i wanted to write the novel of Final Fantasy X. I got as far as the games intro. I hope the true nerds out there enjoy it.
Sat around a campfire in the shadows of the ruins of Zanarkand. In the last few minutes we hardly spoke despite the fact we were all thinking the same thing, all wanting to say something more. The journey was coming to it's end and we all knew what that meant. The crackle of the burning wood echoed and bounced off of every crumbling wall and pile of rubble. Pyroflies danced across the skyline leaving glowing trails of dust which shone like shards of broken glass under the fading light.
I stood up and begin to circle the group heading towards a small mound so I could see out across the ghost of this once great city. As I passed I rested my hand on Yuna's shoulder, her hand reached up to grasp mine. She let out a sigh, a sign that we were united in our thoughts and fears. I climbed the rocks, fingers had hardened over the journey, my feet ached and my legs were tired from the miles and miles our pilgrimage has taken us. I stood and stared out across the near baron land, littered with wrecked buildings or piles of rocks, once part of a grand hall, a mighty stadium, giant statues of heroic blitzball stars – the warriors of their time.
I felt empty, as though part of me was lost, wandering the ruins searching for the life I once had. It was still hard to accept despite me tricking myself I had come to terms with it long ago. Until I had seen it with my own eyes I guess I clung on to a last glimmer of hope that everyone in Spira was wrong. How did I get here? To what end was our means? What was going to happen to us, to me?
Listen to my story. This may be our last chance.
