Friday Frugal Findings – 25th November 2011

This weeks Friday Frugal Findings has been written under much hardship. When I arrived in my lab this morning the place was in total disarray, of course that could have been due to the amount of Deadman’s lethal cocktails downed the night before, yet I didn’t remember ordering monkeys from anywhere.

Final Fantasy XIII-2: Opening Cinematic

Ah Final Fantasy, how I loved thee, yet at some point our relationship turned into something distasteful like that of a University romance.

Square Enix flagship titles and I parted ways after about 49 minutes into Final Fantasy XIII, but just the same as when you see an old flame strutting their stuff after you’ve torn each others souls to shreds, you do think “Christ, what have I done?”. This
