Party Ruiner: Square Portal Continues Its Military Service


This is E.X. Troopers, a game only released in Japan. It’s not even a Square Enix game, but who cares, it’s pretty awesome. Check out some good stuff from Youtube, if you are curious. I promise that the soundtrack will be pure bliss, if you like electronic music. Why use non-SE game artwork on this site? Well, this army thing isn’t really related to it either, so let’s have some fun! (By fun I mean that I finally have a chance to shamelessly promote one of my favorite non-SE games) Would you like to read more about them? Send feedback to the comments.

Ruinga! Literally.

I have some bad news: Life isn’t strange, it’s quite simple when it comes to the obligations ruled by your country’s government and laws – there isn’t much you can do about them and it’s pretty frustrating. Starting this weekend, I will be continuing my military service and I won’t be that active for a month or so, because I don’t really have time to run my site.

It’s not really a surprise to anyone that the military service will take most of my personal time and when Square Portal staff only consist of one personme – there isn’t anyone else to support my own work and I hope you can deal with this for a while. I will try to arrange things that I can keep the site updated during my spare time, but it will be extremely limited. Things should be easier in a month or two, and I really hope I will be able to play Final Fantasy Type-0 and Final Fantasy XV demo when they are out.

This isn’t the end, but it delays my already delayed projects, which were -surprisingly- delayed by the very same reason last year. This doesn’t ease the frustration at all, but guess there is no other choice than try to bear with it. I will use this moment to tell that you can donate Square Portal via PayPal as well. Likely nobody will do it since -duh internet is all about free content- and I give you that. If you feel like supporting us to improve the site’s content, your help would be much appreciated. (I actually love you if you do that, but that’s another story) Thank you for consideration.

God bless Finland for having many useless laws,
–Johnny a.k.a Square Portal

This song is called “Starry Conversation (Triangle Mix)” from E.X. Troopers (3DS & PS3) and it has cheered me up during these depressing times.

Damn patriots…

  1. Donations buttons is fixed now! If you want to support this site financially, you can make donations here: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=UYXLM6GBB4538 It’s not forced, but I thought to open it for people who have been asking for a chance to do it. Big thanks for them who have already contributed to this already. It means a lot – this way we can buy better capture cards etc. to provide better content like streams etc. :)

    • Thank you for the support! I will be continue posting news this and next month, but it might not be as aggressive than it could be with 100% free time. :)
