That's another week tucked away! Summer's going by way too fast. I have a nice, ripe tomato for the first "Back to School!" clothing ad I see.

Uh, I hope I don't see it on my computer.

Me thinking about playing Final Fantasy XII all weekend.

This was Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age's week to shine. Square-Enix has gifted us with a terrific remake of one of the series' most overlooked and under-appreciated titles. Read Kat's review of the game, listen to Kat and I talk about the game on Axe of the Blood God this week, and stroke your chin as Kat points out how the original game marked the start of a tough decade for Final Fantasy.

Here's what else made headlines this week:

I've selected a "Game Over" theme for this week's music. Technically, Game Over themes aren't ending credits music, but they sure are some kind of ending music.

This time around: The Game Over for Batman on the NES. I sucked hard at this game when I was a kid, but at least my failure was accompanied by one of the most soothing pieces of music ever composed for a video game. Weird, lovely stuff.
