~Eyes on me~♥

While searching through some old tapes yes VHS ugh (_´Д`)ノ~~。。。I'd forgotten that I had this performance by Faye Wong from the Japan music awards program~* from years ago…..happy that I found it to share here as I still feel it's the very best FF theme~* ever and yet saddened as it reminded me of my FFXIII envy lol~! (/∇\*)!While ordering the game itself was simple enough, silly me still needs to get a PS3 (*´艸`)。。。。but in a couple of weeks that should be remedied~* as we receive our bonuses then (*´∀`*)。

I wonder how the theme song for the new game will evolve with players as they tend to really grow on you and especially after hours of game~time spent and much like the characters in the story themselves, the theme songs take on a life all their own in an endearment sense^ ^♥。For a few more thoughts on Final Fantasy, koko ni click~*.

  2. She really has such a silky~smooth voice ne~♥! Are you a fan of the FF series too?…I have many a late night memories~* of staying up and trying to complete an area or power up my characters for the next boss fight!! I would even sometimes find a really great spot near a save sphere so I could level~up everyone in my party and I'd literally stay there for a few days~…..XD! "Eyes on me" has such a warm tone and even a sweet sadness to it and the words are just some of the best~* as it really evokes the feelings that Squall had with Rinoa so much~♥…..love love this song♪!

  5. U don't have to say sorry ^q^ It's Ok. I know FF has been so popular and i hope one day i 'll be able to see it myself. I saw one video of wang fei singing this song, while at the background they featured FF characters or might be a scene from it and it's beautiful!

  6. o(*´∀`)o゛。。。Wow that's really cool that another artist performed this song too!…the game can be most addictive…(warning XD) and it's true that the cgs and mini movies that carry the story throughout the game are so so amazing!!! At times you just look forward to reaching the next level just to see the awesome cg clip~* and FF always has an amazing finale with the ending movie when you beat the game in entirety….sort of like a reward and here I'm babbling again XD!

  8. (*´艸`)!!!。。I feel so stupid okay just looked it up and I should have earlier…I've just only known her as Faye Wong but surely this is a stage name..okay flushing myself down the toilet now (*≧∀≦)☆★ ↓

  9. Oh no no i think it was my fault . I'm used to Wang fei than her English name. I am always told not to call myself *stupid* and I guess i also don't want others to call themselves like that ^q^ Smile ~!!

  10. Oh you're so sweet~*o(*´∀`)o゛。。。I have sort of a nickname which is 'baka' XD but it's more said in fun…um I hope so lol! It's like with Vivian Hsu….I often don't even think that she has her Taiwanese name as I'm so used to calling her Vivian…funny I should have known that Faye wasn't her real name and now I know her given name…'Wang fei', thank you~* ^ ^。

  12. A~h just seeing your screen~name here I know how much you must've loved FFVIII too~♥! And oh this song just makes it so much a favorite~*…even though I haven't played the new game yet I wish they'd stuck with having one common song for both the Japanese and international releases~*….just seems odd a little bit. I began playing with a friend's♥ recommendation with FFVII so I don't know the earlier series but it's my most favorite♥ rpg out there for sure ^ ^。

    Oh, that's no good MB, you can't be a FF fan and not know FFVI, that's just unacceptable =oYou should take a look into the Voices concert if you like FF's music ~ by the way, that's Nobuo Uematsu, the genius composer himself, on the keyboard in the video.Look, there's Eyes on me too (Angela Aki).

  14. Must, must, MUST AGREE with HarimaKenji. It's been a long and epic debate but FFVI is an excellent game and I really recommend it to you MB! 😀 You should be able to hopefully find the GBA port they did for it which is the superior translation of the original game script but I still prefer the loose translation from the 90s because it always makes me laugh my ass off. 8D

  15. A~h lol guilty as charged :P!! I just never owned the right console at the time and well I actually was clueless about rpgs until a bit later when a co~worker suggested I invest in the then new Playstation so that I could play FFVII which was debuting with Sony I think back then?? I've often heard how great the earlier games in the series are though…I really should see if it's available for the DSi. Oh! this is awesome!!! I have a couple of those huge box sets from him for FF and I remember hearing that a live concert was being held in I think Denver a few years ago? Actually now that I think about it I'm not sure if Uematsu~san himself was conducting or performing….but this is so awesome being able to hear his music from the series being performed by a full orchestra and I've often dreamed of wanting to hear "Aerith's Theme" performed on acoustic piano rather than keyboards =)! Angela Aki is amazing too!…I have her debut album and early singles♥…I especially love "Kiss Me Good~bye" which yes! is a FF theme song too so so catchy o(*´∀`)o゛!!!

  16. Hi selphietilmitt~* o(*´∀`)o゛。。。I really do need to see if I can find a version to play….I wonder if DSi has a version that's compatible, will check Amazon to see. Ugh! I just ordered a movie, I wonder if they allow items to be added like Cdjapan does? A~h I imagine there must have been some amusing translations back then and so lucky~* you could experience the game in real~time back then. I have so many vivid memories~* of what I was doing in life so to speak back when I played FFVII, my very first and then with VIII, IX and lol I guess it never ends…(^q^)!

  17. Hey MB! Sadly, the last port for FFVI was released for the Gameboy Advance so you'd actually need a DSLite in order to play it. I don't know why they did it but when the DSi came out, Nintendo removed all the options for backwards compatibility for the GBA games. Sure, the technology of the GBA might be a bit obsolete but there's still some great RPG's on that particular console. You should be able to find a DSLite or a GBA:SP console (which will forever now be known as the Super Nintendo Jr.) and a million other little old school RPG's (FFI, II, IV, V and VI to name a few) were all ported onto the GBA before it became obsolete. 😦 Hmmmm… I should write up a post about this stuff… I could ramble for hours it feels like! ^^

    You could get FFVI on Playstation, there was a port called Final Fantasy Anthologies that includes FFVI and FFV.Or you could join the dark side and emulate any of these on your PC, that's also easy.

  19. Ugh! I was thinking that it may have been better to get a DSLite….backwards compatibility、 ( ┰_┰)。。。!Oh dear I haven't even owned my DSi for very long and I'm already thinking of another model :/! You know so much about the consoles!!! And now I'm a bit sad I don't have the right console….(sigh…) may be awhile before I can justify investing in a new console so quickly =(.

    Like

  20. MB if you have a PS2, you should be able to find Final Fantasy: Anthology for PSX. This should help you find the playstation version of the game. It doesn't have the new translation of the game script but it's the classic script that I grew up with.

    Like

  21. lol what do you mean by 'the dark side?' (・д・`*)?!!。。no actually I prefer to not download as I love having original packaging and stuff like that…I'm sort of dork this way (*≧▽≦)♪。I remember FF Tactics and maybe 'Anthologies' was released at that time as it sounds familiar. I have my ps2 and um….my original ps too somewhere in storage XD so I'm going to search Amazon to see if 'Anthologies' still available. Thank you~*!

    Look, selphietilmitt sent you a link on amazon right up there =p I got it wrong, it's actually Anthology. There was another one with FFIV too if you're ever interested, called Final Fantasy Chronicles… that one comes with Chrono Trigger, aka the best RPG ever, but that's way too much debate for a comment ~ so whatever. Just saying…

  25. I just ordered Anthologies!!!..can't wait for it and it'll be sort of maybe surreal playing the earlier series with me having never seen them before ^ ^!After I added Anthology to my shopping cart I saw "Chrono Trigger" appear as one of their related suggestions~*…..um may be getting a bit ahead of myself though so I bookmarked it for now =).

  26. Chrono Trigger is another one of the classic RPG's from Square but I'm so excited that you ordered FF Anthology! If you get stuck in FFVI, let me know and I can try to help you out! 😀 The first post is almost done actually! xD
