Not your craft, MINECRAFT.

I suppose you could add this to my "Independent Action" series, but I couldn't resist the title.

One of the many sights of the Ending B Minecraft server!



Does that image tickle your fancy? How about being able to build almost whatever you can think of? Are you a lego sort of person? Then this game is made for you! Also it's written in Java, so that's really cool in my book. But we'll find out more after the FOLD!

In November, I promised a post about the best games in the Final Fantasy series. Though it wasn't ready before XIII's release, it's less than a week after, so I guess I can count that as a win.

Once again, here are the rules that I set forth for not only this part of the retrospective, but as a whole as well.
1.) Unless stated otherwise, only the games in the main series will be analyzed. AKA, Final Fantasy 1-10 & 12. The main reason Final Fantasy 11 is not a part these lists is because I strongly believe that MMORPGs cannot and should not be compared using the same criteria as console games. They are two almost completely different things. So, the other 11 core games will be analyzed.
2.) If a list we create states "Best or Worst of," then the order is that of preference (least liked to most liked).
3.) This is a new rule that I'm adding specifically for this post: Remakes/Re-releases are not eligible for analysis. Original releases only.

So, here it is. Ending B's "Best and Worst" of Square-Enix's Final Fantasy series. The results are a combination of my votes along with the votes of others who are either members of Ending B or are affiliated in some way. The opinions on why the games got the ranking they did are mine alone. One more note should be that this review may contain spoilers (just an FYI).

Two things. First, I created an "Ending B" account on YouTube, so that way we cam now upload any videos we may create for this site for all to see. Second, I made a quick little video of something... well... stupid. I just figured out how to splice sounds into the same scenes using Microsoft Movie Maker, and this was my test experiment (so please excuse the "less than stellar" video quality).

The most common search term that leads people to our site is "toast." Link below the picture to read more about this oddity.

April Fools 2009

by Eric Kociecki

Wednesday, April 1, 2009

Hope everyone had a good April Fools Day. This was the second year that Ending B was able to do some kind of joke. To see what we did this year, click here. I suggest you use either Google Chrome or Safari to get the full benefit from the prank. Once you go to the page, you'll see a joke post I wrote up. The main attraction though comes in once you move your mouse anywhere on the page. The javascript code was borrowed from www.mrdoob.com where it was written as part of a Chrome Experiment. Because the code was designed for Chrome, results in other browsers is a bit different. Firefox and Opera work, but don't support rotation of the individual pieces. In IE8 the pieces just keep falling right off the screen (which is also kind of amusing).

You can click and drag the various pieces of the site around too.

More recently Mr. Doob started a new project called rfrrr.com that sounds interesting. He's dubbed it a referrocracy, but to me, it's a kind of free advertising! Click the link and check out some of the other sites that are currently part of the referrocracy.

So I Just Noticed the New Layout

As the title suggests, I noticed Ending B has a shiny new layout. And this was my initial reaction:

A winning combination!

It sure is, Philip!
