    Let's not forget the coolest thing: Rock version of One Winged Angel. (Still trying to find it by the way)

    It probably won't be available for a while. It might be released on the Black Mage's (Nobuo Uematsu's rock band) new album... although when that comes out... nobody knows.

    Watching again for details...

    TIFA IS LEFT-HANDED!

    Or, at least, she fights south-paw.

    *SPOILERS*

    That review makes it sounds like Cloud dies. Aeris decides it isn't his time yet and lets him live. Is there a reason where Aeris can seem to control the lifestream? Or is this just Cloud's imagination as he is fading away or about to die?

    No, it's just him having flashbacks because of his Geostigma. He misses Aeris and blames himself for her death. He can't let it go. And she doesn't control the Lifestream, she's just a part of it now.

    Whoa...ok. I'm not as much of a Final Fantasy fan as you guys are, but even I thought that was incredible as all hell. I was confused a little about the plot and such, but the graphics were un-fucking-believable.

    There are many conspiracy theories (yes, about the game) that say otherwise.

    Some say that Aeris is the avatar of the Lifestream, while Sephiroth is <s>a fucking bad-ass</s> the avatar of all that Jenova crap.

    I just downloaded a special movie that was put on the Advent Children special edition, called Last Order. It isn't all CGI like AC, but instead is anime. It covers what happened with Cloud and Sephiroth's last mission to Nibilhelm. It also shows him taking the head of Jenova, and Shinra Co.'s response to Cloud and Zack's interference. Basically just a movie version of all of Cloud's flashbacks from the game. Being only 20 minutes long, it's not something to really go crazy about, but it's still cool nonetheless.

    Right now I'm 'acquiring' Yesterday Once More, which, according to my FF friends, is pretty much a recap of Final Fantasy VII in movie form.

    They could be wrong though.

    That sounds just like Last Order. Not sure what you're getting there.

    Seems as much, but seeing as you say Last Order is 20 minutes long, and this Yesterday Once More Thing is 800mb and four videos in total, I think that Last Order might just be one in a series of some sort.

    Hm. Keep me informed, I'm definitely interested in this.

    EDIT: I googled Final Fantasy VII Yesterday Once More and this is what I got. Seems whatever you have is NOT Final Fantasy.

    A bit of interesting trivia, I guess.

    At about an hour, 20 minutes, and 20 or so seconds into the movie (during the Sephiroth fight), some chanting occurs.

    Is it just me, or does it sound like

    Veni Vedi Vici?

    I came, I saw, I conquered?

    Oh, and Aeris as the voice of the Lifestream as it rains down on Midgar? Does that mean she's an integral part of the Lifestream or what?
