    I had to do a double-take on some of these deals just to make sure you weren’t trying to pull a fast one on us 😉

    Thanks for sharing!

      ? I thought about opening with a joke like this blog was shutting down, but I decided against it in case people missed the J/K part.
      …Not the deals though. I would never joke about deals! ?

    When it comes to April Fools, I want to be careful. I already got fooled by Square Enix this morning. There is no plans of Final Fantasy VIII for Ps4 or Switch. 🙁

    1. Krystallina (Post author)

      Didn’t they lose the source code for that game? Even though they could work off the PC version, they probably just don’t care too much about it since it’s a divisive game.

      1. Matthew

        That’s what I heard. They lost the codes and that is why we haven’t had a port on the HD consoles. I think if they wanted to do FF8 again, they would have to do it from scratch.
