I am Mog Anarchy, and I like to play games. Whether they are old, new, retro, modern, online, offline, console, computer, critically acclaimed or notoriously bad. Here on my blog, I rant about, review, trash talk, praise and generally talk about all of my favourite and least-favourite games. I also write my own guides on how to accomplish tricky tasks, show off my creative endeavors and challenge myself with crazy in-game tasks. I also have a bunch of gaming merchandise which I am glad to show off. So drop me a comment, I love hearing your questions, criticisms, comments and general gaming discussions. :)


I Completed Final Fantasy VII When I Was Five

Today is my big brother Ian's birthday - (I bought him Heavy Rain for the PS3 and Borderlands GOTY for the Xbox 360, so he can play it with me online bwhaha) - so I'm recalling a story from when I was 5 and he was 17 - the day I COMPLETED FINAL FANTASY VII WHEN I WAS FIVE.

For weeks I'd been watching Ian play Final Fantasy VII - I didn't really understand the story, but I remember the key moments of a) blowing up reactor 1, b) fighting the Lost Number inside the Shinra Mansion and c) breeding the Gold Chocobos. I liked watching the boss battles the best, because there was lots of magic and summon monsters were awesome - especially Ifrit.

Ian also changed the names of a few of the characters - I remember Cait Sith being named 'Whoop Ass' for some reason - Barret was 'Barre', he blamed his friend for deleting the T, and Tifa was 'TifaA' - I made the joke that if he were to play it again she should be TifaB.

Anyway, I was watching the final boss with Sephiroth in The Crater - and after defeating now what I know were Bizarro and Safer Sephiroth - then came the mother of all endings - the OMNISLASH finisher - with BLOOD!

A.K.A. - THIS:

Anyway - Ian then gave me the controller and told me to PRESS CIRCLE when it says LIMIT BREAK. I was an overexcited child and just manically bashed the circle button - but did press it at the right time and therefore, finished Final Fantasy VII when I was FIVE. :D
