Greetings fellow Scholars of the Lifestream!

The world of gaming and Final Fantasy specifically has so much to offer and the Remake of my favorite entry, Final Fantasy VII, is releasing next year. That's why I'm currently analyzing and discussing everything about this game as detailed as I can.

My goal is to do this full-time so every bit of support is greatly appreciated! If you like nerdy and extremely detailed analyses and insightful discussions about Final Fantasy - and other games in the future - you're in the right place and I would be infinitely thankful for your support, no matter how big or small.

Take a look around, check the tiers and let me know what you think in the comments of this post. If you decide to join, I'll be eternally grateful and try my best to deliver great content for years to come!

That being said, thank you so much for checking out my work!

Studio Upgrade!

It has been long overdue. I just improved soundproofing in my room with those 3 100x50 cm foam panels. Far away from a professional upgrade, but it's a good start. 

A huge thank you to all of you, who keep supporting me month after month with your generous pledges!

I'll keep you posted with every purchase I make for CCO.

Love you all!

Game Analysis #17 - Weapon Upgrades

A week ago, Square Enix released a whole bunch of new screenshots of the Final Fantasy VII Remake, among which there were 2 showing off the... Weapon Upgrade System!

Which is what we'll be looking at in detail in this video.

Pledge Tier Update

Hello my fellow Scholars of the Lifestream Elite!

I want to let you all know that I changed the higher pledge tiers. The Professor tier is no more, as its reward didn't feel right and I want to provide parts of that reward randomly at my leisure on Discord. I also couldn't come up with an appropriate reward replacement, so it had to go.

The Master and Bugenhagen tiers remain intact, but the pledge amounts have been reduced. If someone would like to pledge even more in the future, I can just add a new tier.

Please note that nothing changes for existing patrons as those tiers affected didn't have any patrons yet.

Thank you for your attention. Your continued support is greatly appreciated!

Best regards

- Vyzzuvazzadth

Content update

Greetings my fellow Scholars of the Lifestream elite!

In the wake of so much new material to analyze, I'm thinking of changing my approach. 

Livestreaming stuff could work, but it also need a lot of preparation to get it right and maintain a similar level of quality compared to my edited videos. 

Currently, I'm thinking of tackling all the new and remaining material by recording myself analyzing it in real-time, like those 2 "live" reaction videos I published with one containing a rough analysis of the TGS 2019 trailer. That way, I might be able to analyze the material in maybe 2 days, depending on the amount of work, record it on another day and do some post-editing on the last day (workdays). Saturday would then be reserved for the podcast and the gaming livestream (more info on that at another time) and Sunday would be my free recuperation day.  

Scripted, recorded and edited videos just aren't feasible anymore with all the workload stacked onto my shoulders. I'll never finish this way. 

This also means that the last poll for Apprentices is kind of moot as I'm changing the paradigm.

I'll post another poll tomorrow with different options, taking those new screenshots and renders into account.

Thank you for your understanding!

Analysis Livestream Notice

There won't be an analysis livestream tomorrow. There's too much going on right now and I need to keep working on Game Analysis #17. Character Combat live analysis will then follow on November 30th with better preparation and better format. 
Thank you for your understanding!

Live Analysis #001 Excerpts - Part 2

In the next segment of our first live analysis, we dig deep into the second FFVIIR Twitter clip, which contains a full 5-hit combo performed by Cloud, followed by Tactical Mode and his signature move, Braver.

We're still in the very same area as in the previous short clip: the sector 1 reactor premises at the beginning of the first Bombing Mission.

Live Analysis #001 Excerpts - Part 1

To make my live analyses easier to digest, I decided to upload the individual segments of the livestreams as separate videos. Here's the first one (unfortunately 1 day late).

This time, we take a close look at the first FFVIIR Twitter clip of Cloud battling his way through Sector 1 on Avalanche's very first Bombing Mission. The purpose of this clip is to show off shortcuts. After 4 normal combo hits, Cloud performs one of his abilities Focused Thrust, which has an increased staggering potential.

Patron Tier updates

Hello my fellow Scholars of the Lifestream elite!

I asked you guys a while ago about changes regarding reward tiers.

I made the descriptions for the Professor and Master tiers more comprehensible and reduced the price for the Master and Bugenhagen tiers to $24 and $48 respectively.

I hope this change will improve the incentive for rich people to join higher tiers. If not, I can always change them again or delete them outright.

Thank you for your feedback!

Game Analysis #16 - Avalanche Side Mission

Finally, after 3 whole weeks, I managed to finish Game Analysis episode 16.

Apologies for the wait and thank you for your patience!

We're taking a good look at another segment of the Final Fantasy VII Remake TGS 2019 trailer and cover the Avalanche side mission with Cloud, Jessie, Biggs & Wedge, who ride to above the Plate with their motorcycles, battle a Soldier 3rd class on their way, probably steal stuff from a ShinRa facility with the help of Ifrit and then make a grandiose escape using twin parachutes to fly back home to 7th Heaven.
