Final FantasyPICK OF THE WEEK: Final Fantasy @ Little Pedro’s

Game Synopsis:
A giant energy manufacturing company known as Shinra Inc. is harvesting the sheer life energy of the Planet as a simple fossil fuel. However, this substance, like all other fuels, is finite in supply, and the Planet’s lifeforce is being malevolently drained by Shinra’s constant explotation.

However, the real battle lies not with a corporation, but a force much more competent from the distant past. A long-thought dead warrior bent on becoming more and more powerful, coupled with the Planet’s drained energy, threatens the very existence of everything sacred.

Now, Owen Pallett, a small rebel violinist eminating from the slums of Toronto must quell the various dangers toward the innocent looking amidst lies and deception to find the man he is within.
