Square Enix pulls a very interesting move for its next Final Fantasy game. Meanwhile, a new Eyefi SDc ard is announced and Google reassures us that USB-C is here to stay.
It’s every RPG gamer’s dream, right? I have always wanted to be a character in the magnificent universes Square Enix has been creating for the Final Fantasy game series. This is why I used to name the protagonist “Edgar”, and the rest of my crew was always named after my best friends. The main female protagonist was also always named after the girl I liked at the moment (I know you did it too!).
Square Enix is now making this dream true for a select group of lucky winners, but let’s give you the whole story. Final Fantasy: Record Keeper was announced some weeks ago. This game is said to feature Final Fantasy’s most iconic characters, allowing you to re-live their best childhood moments.
Square Enix has opened sign-ups to receive updates on the game. Special rewards are unlocked as more people share and participate on social network activities – one of these rewards is the 8-bit Creator. Simply sign up to the draw and a few players will be selected and turned into 8-bit characters to be features in the game.
Opinion: This is freaking amazing, right?! You won’t be a main character or anything, but this is giving us a chance to be part of Final Fantasy history. Imagine the bragging rights you would have if you are chosen. I have to say I would make a great character. I think my hair and beard would fit into the Final Fantasy world very well.
The photography industry is taking its sweet time do adapt to new technologies. While some manufacturers have made their cameras “smart” with wireless functionality, most cameras are simply not blessed with such features. This is why Eyefi SD cards have become so popular within photographers who want to have WiFi functionality in their cameras.
Today, the new $99.99 Eyefi Mobi Pro card has been announced. This WiFi card gives you 32 GB of internal storage and a free year of Eyefi Cloud. In addition, it can transfer any kind of images (even RAW) to your smartphone or tablet via WiFi.
Opinion: These features and price easily beat previous cards, which were offered at $50 and $80 for the 8 GB and 16 GB versions, relatively. You are getting more storage per dollar, RAW compatibility and a whole year of Eyefi Cloud. Can’t go wrong here.
It would be an understatement to say Google is excited about USB-C. They are going all in on this new technology, which we have explained to you in a previous article. This new technology is the future, and Google wants you to know they are committed to it. They made it clear with the new Chromebook Pixel announcement and they are making it even more clear in the video below.
Opinion: I was hoping to see more USB-C at MWC, but only the Nokia N1 surprised us with it. I am sure this will change by the end of the year.
