Destructoid found this brand-spanking new (and almost assuredly not long for this world) trailer for Final Fantasy: Dissida, the FF fighting game I’d somehow totally forgotten about until today. I mean, I knew that it starred the main heroes and villains of all the Final Fantasy games (not all have been revealed, but this does include the nameless Warrior of Light from the first FF). I also theoretically new that people like Squall (“…”) from FF8 could fight Sephiroth, but seeing them do it in the trailer…I, uh…I just need to lie down for a bit.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
