Turns out “they were building sets when the plug was pulled, one month away from shooting”, and that unlike many other CGI-obsessed Hollywood blockbusters, Verbinski “was going to be shooting on real sets and doing as much in-camera as possible”. GORE producer Nils Peyron said the aborted project “was going to be epic and…there was a crazy amount of jaw-dropping art they accumulated during pre-production”, art we’d dearly like to see one day.
When I came home today I had the sudden urge to finally find out if there any other good games like my absolute favorite one of all time, Final Fantasy IX. There are too many reasons as to why I love FFIX so much, but in a nutshell I stinkin’ love how they dealt with the medieval theme so perfectly (I hate elves and dwarves and fairies and everything SO MUCH so that says a lot) and I keep that game close to my 9-year-old heart.
I just browsed through the Final Fantasy IX GameFAQs boards (shoot me, I was going to look at the reviews initially, alright), I didn’t really find much, except this game Vargant Story, which seems pretty cool, I just have no way of obtaining a copy. But anyways, I was just reading the boards that had been revived from the FFIX re-release on PlayStation Network, and gosh dangit, I’m falling head over heels for this game all over again.
I’m feeling that maybe I should go replay it/finish my last file, but I’m already in the middle of Banjo-Tooie, and I then I got stuck in a level in Yoshi’s Island, and I still haven’t finished stupid Odin Sphere, and I’ve been wanting to play Super Mario 64, and gosh darnit I still haven’t obtained a Pokemon Blue…
