    A Treatise on Practical Cryptanalysis

    When it comes to updates, Square-Enix likes to employ a very subtle language of codes and symbolism to convey their message for what they have planned for the future. Creating an update note is an art form- there is a delicate balance between telling too much and ruining all of the surprises that are in store and telling too little leading the player base to have little hope in the contents of the next patch. Through arduous study and much practice, one can come to look through the language of an update and see the true meaning behind it.



    Using my keen powers of observation I took one such patch note from Square-Enix and deciphered the true intent that was hidden behind Square's code.

    Hope I am allowed to post in this thread but it was pure genius, the scythe had me choking on my soda lol. Also the pictures are incredibly gorgeous. My fav are the proto omega lasers. I don' know how you got such perfect poses according to character size with a dead mob in the middle for the jeuno dynamis.

    Sometimes the game glitches in Dynamis and the mobs after they are killed dont depop like they should. That poor gobbie was there damn near the whole run. After we cleared the zone, we all sat down and took pics. Poor Gobbie... i suppose he just didnt want to leave... you know how it is sometimes, they just hang on thinking they can come back.

    :D thank you for clarifying. I was thinking lots and lots of retakes waiting for everyone to sit before the mob blinked out.
