SQUARE-ENIX also revealed a Portal Application companion to keep fans updated about Final Fantasy updates and merchandise.

Big Hero 6 #1 At the Box-Office!


Hi everyone it's Xebs, last weekend Disney's Big Hero 6 "eclipsed" Christopher Nolan's Interstellar at the box office. Big Hero 6 made approximately $56.2 million dollars in its first week, a 15% increase over 2012's Wreck-It Ralph, but not quite as good as Frozen's Thanksgiving Holiday opening gross of $67.3 million (and Frozen wasn't even #1 on that weekend).

Also Big Hero 6 has a rated 91% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. Good word of mouth should propel the film past $200 million domestically (hopefully).

Disney’s Big Hero 6 is now showing in cinemas in the US, but will be coming out on Boxing Day in Australia.

NEW! Final Fantasy XIII-2 PC Trailer & A Quick Fix For Final Fantasy XIII PC!


Hi everyone it's Xebs, SQUARE-ENIX has released a small trailer of the upcoming PC version of Final Fantasy XIII-2. Currently Final Fantasy XIII-2 is available for pre-order at a 10% discount through Steam.

In an announcement posted to the game's Steam page, SQUARE-ENIX said that "the Final Fantasy XIII team has been working hard to improve your experience on Steam and will add custom resolutions and other unspecified graphics options in a December update."


When SQUARE-ENIX released the PC version of Final Fantasy XIII in October, the game was locked at 1280 x 720 resolution, with virtually no graphics options. The PC port had a few other quirks, like more compressed cutscenes and an overzealous use of the Esc key.


It appears that SQUARE-ENIX's updates will also apply to the upcoming release of Final Fantasy XIII-2, which will hit Steam and SQUARE-ENIX's online store on December 11th 2014, promises 60 frames-per-second, customisable resolution and Japanese Voice support with subtitles.

NEW! Utada Hikaru Album Artwork Created By Tetsuya Nomura!

(Who can see the Kingdom Hearts combat grid underneath Hikaru's feet)? 

Hi everyone it's Xebs, to everyone's surprise, Tetsuya Nomura created an artwork for Utada Hikaru's upcoming album called "Utada Hikaru no Uta". The album will be released on the 9th of December 2014 and will feature various popular "old" tracks and various artists like; Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis feat. Peabo Bryson, Yasuyuki Okamura, Ayumi Hamasaki, LOVE PSYCHEDELICO, and many more. The track listing has not yet been confirmed. Also the team behind the new Evangelion films will create a video for the album.

Nomura also left a message regarding his thoughts toward this artwork above.


This was the first time I felt troubled to draw.


There were a number of things that troubled me. Perhaps you could ask yourself is this the "game". In the game’s proposal, I kept in mind when writing this, from what you know previously, your imagination may start to inflate/swell. I thought about trying to express this in one picture. What arises from this proposal, there is a meaning to every keyword in the picture.


And, as one waits for Utada to perform again, there is a double meaning in this content. What happens if she starts to move again?I tried to draw those emotions in the possibility of those imaginations.


- Tetsuya Nomura


It's still unconfirmed if Utada Hikaru will be doing the Kingdom Hearts III theme song.

A Loop Hole To Get Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX Collector's Edition To Australia?!


Hi everyone, it's Xebs, not too long ago Bandai Namco Games Australia had confirmed that the Collector's Edition wouldn't be available in Australia and New Zealand, which is unfortunate. However, admin D'Lux has found away to deliver the Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX Collector's Edition to Australia through the US!


Bandai Namco Games respones


How do you do it? First, go to shopmate.auspost.com.au and sign-up (it's free). Once you are logged-in you will receive a "USA" address. Then go to the official Kingdom Hearts website and pre-order the Collector's Edition, they will ask you for your address. Use the "USA" address that shopmate has provided you. As you fill-in your name, email and "USA" address (NOT your Australian address) the site will conform your purchase. Then in a few weeks you'll get a tracking number on your shopmate account of your purchase. That is it... hopefully you'll get the Collector's Edition before Christmas time.

Sadly for New Zealand I haven't found away in this "loop hole", sorry.

NEW! Into The Woods Trailer!


Hi everyone it's Xebs, Disney has released a new trailer "Into the Woods." The movie stars Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick and Chris Pine. "Into the Woods" is a humorous and heartfelt musical that follows the classic tales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel and all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife, their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch who has put a curse on them.

Into The Woods is coming to cinemas December 25th US and January 8th Australia, 2015.

BREAKING NEWS! John Lasseter To Direct Toy Story 4 Opening June 2017!


Hi everyone it's Xebs, Disney has announced  that John Lasseter will be the director of Toy Story 4. The Pixar film will hit theaters in June 2017.

Lasseter, the CEO of Pixar, also directed Toy Story and Toy Story 2. It will open up a new chapter in the lives of Buzz and Woody, and the story was dreamt up by Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter and Lee Unkrich, the storytellers who have been the driving force behind all three previous films.

John Lasseter - "We love these characters so much; they are like family to us, We don’t want to do anything with them unless it lives up to or surpasses what’s gone before. Toy Story 3 ended Woody and Buzz’s story with Andy so perfectly that for a long time, we never even talked about doing another Toy Story movie. But when Andrew, Pete, Lee and I came up with this new idea, I just could not stop thinking about it. It was so exciting to me, I knew we had to make this movie—and I wanted to direct it myself."

There's no details yet on just what the fourth film would revolve around. The first three essentially told an epic, continuing story of the toys' life with their first owner, and ended with them finding a new one. "Toy Story of Terror" was a bit more episodic, by necessity giving them a smaller-scale problem that could be solved in half an hour of screen time.
