    well, no links to really link to. no news pages or anything, just to let you all know that Final Fantasy Advent Children has been leaked and is making its way onto the bit torrent scene.

    funny thing is its high quality (ive downloaded a sample only on my puny 512kbps line) yet its not a screener -no 'report piracy!' messages. and its DVD quality. amazing. maybe too amazing?

    Was it a clip of the movie, or the advertising where the main character (forgot his name, as I generally rename my main character to IAN when I play FF :p ) is on a motorcycle and sees Sephiroth and they have a sword battle?

    its the full thing. full quality, english subtitles, the lot. 733mb for the film, 8mb for the trailer.

    again i say, im quite shocked this got out at such a high quality. must be a leak at Square/Sony/Somehere.

    The Japanese DVD release is tomorrow, so it's not surprising to find it online.

    Almost more surprising that it hasn't happened earlier.

    Edit: And I'll just confirm as well that it's the real thing. Not just a trailer, or clip.

    I just also have to confirm this

    It is a horrible movie because anything dealing with FF puts companys out of business. God does FF friggen suck at life. Advent Children more so.

    yea personally I liked FF7 but after that it was a slippery slope. i liked the gameplay not the story too so im pretty much going into Advent Children with no memories of Sephiroth or the gang.

    could it be that Square have released something of value since the original FF7 :eek: ... although i did love the remakes of FF1 and 2 on the GBA.

    I really just chalk it up to a saga that completely lost its vision throughout the years.

    Tragic really. :(

    Why so many negative responses about this, or FF in general? It's not THAT bad.

    People make FF to be some God of a series, when really...its not. Its good, but not "omg" good. I like it, I don't like the fanatics that would do anything for FF...and by anything I mean anything.

    the FF series was good. im playing through 1 and 2 now, getting 3 for the DS. i played a bit of 7 and loved it but 8 to 10-2 just no. 10-2 was absolutely terrible, total fan service. it didn't have the 'feel' of an FF game. and FF11 (if thats that terrible online PC one)? no thanks.

    i have no doubt in my mind they will bring a new brilliant episode to the series though :).

    Eh, only FF game I've cared about is some SNES version that was translated from japanese to english by fans. Don't remember which one it was.

    FF 8 was boring, but the story wasn't THAT bad. Just the gameplay was bad. :eek:

    FF 9 was okay. The characters were cartoonish, but that's okay in my book.

    FF 10 was okay as well. It wasn't great, but it definitely wasn't bad.

    FF 10-2 was s***house.

    They made another Final Fantasy movie? I had no idea about that.

    I was a big FF fan back in high school. Played everything from 5 to X-2 (not 11). VII was definitely the best. If they remade it exactly the same only with new graphics I would totally buy it, the game play was awesome.

    I don't understand how some of you guys can just download it. I'm not talking about the fact that its immoral or whatever. But I mean; its a full length motion film, and you just bittorent it as soon as you find out that you can? Aren't you worried about getting caught? Thats probably the biggest reason file sharing has gone down these recent years...



    What's your secret?

    ^^Haha, "what's your secret." That's classic! :D At first I thought it was going to be a lesson on morals.

    Of course I did. I just didn't comment because everyone knows that game was goooood. ;)

    Played most of the first 6 games as well, but they sort of blend together and I can't remember which ones I played.

    well until single end-users are being arrested for downloading then there is no secret.
