Well folks it has indeed been a very, very long time since I updated here. It's unbelievable just how quickly the weeks and months fly by as one gets older.

This place may seem to have been forgotten, but I can assure you it has not been. There's just been so much going on in real life (break-ups, new additions to the family, home improvements, and a recent very sad loss in the family) that this has really taken a lower priority. As I say every time (and do mean sincerely, despite it seldom coming to fruition), I do full intend to get this place up to date at some point 'when I have the time' ;)

But, something has come up of late which really does require at least this much of an update. Just before Christmas I found myself receiving Sega USA Press emails, directing me to new footage & features about Shining Force EXA, the latest addition to the series. Now I think you all know where I stand with regard to the newer titles in the series, but I also feel this is an important opportunity to form a relationship of sorts with SoA. I have already been sent a large EXA poster (which no doubt I shall pass on as a competition prize at some point) and been emailed two exclusive screenshots as well as an enquiry as to how to get more coverage for the game here!

So, Sega is at last taking notice and realises that SFC is the main online Shining community. Perhaps we can gain an ear to hear our cries for an old school Force title. Zod knows I've mentioned it in all my replies to SoA since they contacted me at the end of last year! ;)

Now, by way of demonstration that I appreciate their interest, that I do still do a thing or two around here and to satisfy those of you who have an interest in EXA, I give you 2 SFC exclusive Shining Force EXA screenshots courtesy of Sega USA!

Here's hoping for a review copy, some contest prizes & perhaps a statement with regards to the future/past of the series sometime in the near future.

Many thanks to my contact at Sega USA for his interest in reaching fans of the series through SFC!

Keep on Shining, SFCers!
