Lusipurr and SiliconNooB exchange felicities and then investigate the musical wunderkraft of Skrillex, the world-famous (or should that be notorious?) avant-garde composer, known for his seizure-inducing psychosounds and essays in auditory schizophrenia.


  1. I listened to the KH3 theme. It started off okay, then it devolved into meaningless screeching. THankfully the trailer then played a different song that Skrillex didn’t have a hand in.

  2. It’s been a while, but after infiltrating a Square-Enix planning meeting, this is what I have to report.

    Mr. Nomura walked in with a Gold Statue of Cloud Strife, with his goons. He calls the statue “Goldie.” At the meeting an interpreter announced that Skrillex will compose a soundtrack “inspired” by Nobuo Uematsu for the Final Fantasy 7. The interpreter then stated that each game will come with a “season pass” and ads to acquire gil. Certain sponsors will have exclusive deals tied to certain materia. At this point one man at the meeting said “This is travesty! Stop this man! He made me ruin Final Fantasy! There is this survey that can save Final-” he began to trail off in fear as Nomura approached him. Nomura grabbed “goldie” and proceeded to beat the man mercilessly while screaming “ME!!!”

    After the beating had concluded he then began clapping and patting himself on the back. It was terrifying. Everyone in the room started clapping with him. They carted the man out on a stretcher. This was the last time I had seen Hajime Tabata.

    I quickly raised my hand and said, “could your vision of Final Fantasy 7 really be accomplished on the PlayStation 4? Surely a man of your talent would require at least a PlayStation 9 or 10?” He walked up to me. And put his hand on my shoulder, and said in broken English “GREAT IDEA!” I left that day, never to return.

    Maybe I’ve saved Final Fantasy 7, or maybe I’ve doomed the future generation. I sent one final email to Nomura, with the subject line: SHAME.

  3. Gil as virtual currency for freemium-style full-price Square Enix games. Truly this is the future.
