I think it is safe to say that if you ask a gamer about their favorite video game music, that there will most likely be a song from one of the Final Fantasy games on their list. The series has numerous games within it, with a majority of them having highly acclaimed soundtracks. The music in these games does more than just pump you up for a battle, or sway you to fall in love with a relationship; they are also some of the most memorable parts of these games.

Treat it nicely even if you’re just covering up! Continue reading

Reading through this first issue you’ll see she is indeed intriguing and well, we will get to that below.
