So Here’s ‘Final Fantasy XV’…as a PSone Game?!?

Final Fantasy XV... As A PlayStation 1 Game

If you’re one of those Final Fantasy fans — like myself — who strongly believed the series peaked with VII and felt that the series had been on a steep decline ever since — personally, IX has been my favorite, and really the only polarizing game in the series since VII has to be XIII; or the blatant pay-to-win rip-off  ‘All The Bravest” on iOS… –then you are going to get a kick out of this.  Freelance animator Mark Jenkins re-imagined the upcoming Final Fantasy XV as a PlayStation 1 game, and the results he chronicled on his Tumblr, are just wonderful.

Musician Moby is best known as, well, a musician, but he has recently been receiving a lot of attention for his architecture blog on Tumblr that is centered around his fascination with the architecture of Los Angeles, California . In an interview conducted by 1883 Magazine, Moby talks about his opinions on some his personal favorites buildings, and he starts off with the Ennis House by Frank Lloyd Wright.  Moby depicts that house as an ancient Incan spaceship from 100,000 years ago; even though it is recognized as being an example of the Mayan Revival style of architecture from the 1920’s to 30’s, but that’s ok.  Check out a picture of the Ennis House and a preview of the entire interview after the break.
