COSMOS #4 | SeeBeyondTheScientist’s Beautiful Character Monologue Videos

The fourth transmission has finally arrived from Cosmos! Sorry for the delays, which were caused by the fact our staff has been on holiday for a week! (Not all the time, damn workaholics!) 

This week, we are enjoying SeeBeyondTheScientist’s beautiful character monologue videos. But what are they? SBTS beautifully combines game music, scenes and texts into artistic videos where you can read each characters’ thoughts. Watching beautiful sceneries, listening to music and reading characters’ thoughts, the way SBTS personally sees them, is a great way to relax and wake up your own memories!

All videos are made for SBTS’s favorite characters such as Auron (Final Fantasy X), Zack (Crisis Core), Xion & Roxas (Kingdom Hearts) and Neku (The World Ends with You) because he has come to respect them over the years and the values they are standing for. Creating something unique and important to you sounds like a great way to express your relationship with your favorite stories and characters. That’s something amazing which we here at Square Portal value and respect a lot.

While chatting about these monologue videos, SeeBeyondTheScientist revealed his creating progress often begins while listening to his favorite music. Expressing himself through these videos drives him forward while studying Aerospace Engineering in the university. More videos are in the works, and he is also planning to write own fantasy book as well! So, if you like his videos, we recommend you to keep eyes on his Youtube channel for future updates!

NPD March Report: Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster 8th Most-Selling Game in United States

The NPD Group has issued its March video game sales report, revealing Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster was the 8th most-selling game in the United States. It’s the same position Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII reached back in February. Other Square Enix published/developed games have been selling quite well in US: Thief positioned as 4th best-selling game and Bravely Default as 10th in February 2014.

The competition has been quite rough when big titles such as Titalfall, inFamous: Second Son, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and Dark Souls II were released in March as well. It’s also worth noting software sales have dropped 28% in March, but hardware sales increased 78% due to better availability of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Overall, total industry sales increased 3 percent to $1.03 billion, which is a good sign of healthier game market.
